so sad






BAGHEERA

I must say we saw it coming
since last Sunday :
our big brown Burmese cat Bagheera 
(in fact daughter's cat, but our long-term guest)
was getting very thin all of a sudden.
Stumbling sometimes,
didn't have much appetite,
plaintive meowing.

(yes, when we think back now,
there were some signs, days earlier ...
but he had his little ups and downs before)

We really didn't expect it to go worse that quick

His little blue sister Bella stood by him
all the time.



But tonight

we had to say goodbye

and let him go


Thanks, dear sweet-natured friend !

We all,
and especially your little sister,
will dearly miss you !

  3. Thanks Kat and Nat, the grief is still raw ...
    and it's not easy to hear the one left behind meowing.

  4. Oh Els, es tut mir so leid das zu hören und ich kann dich verstehen. Auch Tiere trauern ähnlich wie wir Menschen. Streichelt Bella von mir.
