Such a lovely cat. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I cannot thank all you lovely people enough, for being so kind - your caring thoughts have helped with coming to terms with him no longer being at the door when we walk in, mewing for food, being curled up on the bed or entwined with one of the others - with him simply just not being there anymore. He was a lovely little friend to us all and we are thankful that he didn't suffer too much - he very very gently fell asleep in my son's arms ... he was buried yesterday in the grounds of the monastery in our little town in the hills, as that's where he originally came from ... thanks again to you all.

Rest in peace Giove.

The photo of Giove and Rosie is a favourite! He had a good home and a happy life...and you added your family's love to his blessings... he was a very lucky cat. While you've been grieving Giove probably has recruited a replacement...(the little tabby at the Tivoli?)

Thanks Gilli and Lori - it's getting better yet the house seems so much emptier wth "only" 3 of them. Rosie is still not well enough to come home - no please Lori , no replacements - not yet anyway .....

Aw sorry...guess replacement was the wrong word to use! What I meant to imply was that Giove had made arrangements with the little tabby to take your mind off of missing him so much.
We went shopping this a.m. and there is a pet store I visit..I was looking at some pedigreed persian kittens...when I heard a very plaintive mewing coming from the cage nearest the door... it was a black and white male kitten...his face is all black but his whiskers and eyebrows are White!!! his body is all black except for his toes on his forepaws and his back feet are completely white....I named him on the spot..Bustopher Jones in white spats! (From "Old 'Possum's Book of Practical Cats") I wanted to adopt him but the boss said no. rats! He patted my face through the bars of the cage and purred! Oh it was so hard to walk away. But he's such a sweet fellow that I'm sure he will have a happy home very soon. (Just not with me! boo hoo!)

You won't believe this Lori - but I have adopted another stray tabby - I couldn't resist - called her sleepy - will send a photo of her asap !!.....

13 Jun, 2009


Oh Lori - it must've been so hard for you to leave Bustopher behind - I hate to see them in those cages in shops - I think the "selling" of animals should be abolished. There are so many strays who need homes that I find it sad that others should have a "sales price".

And to think that I had absolutely no intention of "replacing" Giove with little Sleepy (and I know exactly what you kindly meant)- so you see Lori, you were uncannily right about Giove's arrangements !!!!

15 Jun, 2009


Such a moving blog, it must be my age, thank goodness for Sleepy:-)

26 Aug, 2009


Do you know Bornagain, after all this time, I still miss him. Altho' I do have to add, that luttle boisterous Sleepy makes a very good job of filling in that void .... !!
