some more thoughts on our faithful companion ...


this was our fearless feline with leo ... a few Christmas ago at the cottage ... he was such an interactive cat ... always following us around, like a dog ... wanting to be "in" whatever activity we were doing ... and he slept on top of leo most days ... this is my fav pic of my two guys ...


and this one is my favourite with the boy ... he liked to have devotions with me ... cuddle up and just read along ...

leo told me that our poor little guy was evening purring on the table in the vet's office ... just before the end ...

will we get another cat? too soon to tell ... our fearless feline left big paw prints to fill ...

If we treated everyone we meet with the same affection we bestow upon our favorite cat, they, too, would purr. ~Martin Buxbaum

Cats have an infallible understanding of total concentration - and get between you and it. ~Arthur Bridges

Who among us hasn't envied a cat's ability to ignore the cares of daily life and to relax completely? ~Karen Brademeyer

Saija..I am going to be doing a scrapbook page for our Lucy that we lost so suddenly back in December. We still do not know what killed her. She was the sweetest cat. She would sit with me while I did not devotions too. I am going to miss her for a long time. I copied those quotes to use on her page. Take care..Sandy

Saija said...

jel ... thank you ... we are getting used to a quiet house! something is definitely missing here ... :o(

terry ... there is something neat about black cats ... the ones we have had, have been the most loyal of companions - and yes, there is something very nice about a man who loves cats!

Sandy ... i'm glad you liked the quotes ... i got them from the quote garden site ... cats are such good buddies ...

Jeanette said...

You'll know when the time is right... don't worry about that now. (hugs)

Catherine said...

Black cats definitely are special. I have three, and they are just the sweetest things. I'm so glad that your fearless feline had a happy, loving home with you, and I'm so sorry for your loss.

Nellie said...

You have very special and wonderful memories of your fearless feline. I am so sorry for your loss. Hugs to you and Leo both, as you grieve the loss of this faithful companion. I also wanted to stop by Saija to wish you special blessings as you embark on a new season of work at the salt mines in the park.

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

I know you miss you cat. I am so sorry.I have never had a cat only a dogs but I love each one we have had. It is like losing a very precious thing when you lose one and I hope the feeling of loss lessens day by day. connie from Texas

Saija said...

j ... yes, i agree ... (hugs) backatcha ...

catherine ... thank you ... we've had 3 black cats (plus other colours!) and the males were very loyal to us ... the one female was feisty!

nellie ... i appreciate that, thanks ... and yes - i am just drinking coffee - ready to go read my bible before my work season begins! time went by quickly!

connie ... we've had both - and have mourned the loss of each family pet ... they sure do take a piece of your hearts? don't they? blessings on your day!

Mrs. Diamond said...

awww they become such a part of the family... but if i were you i would definitely get another one! little kittens are so much fun!

Saija said...

mrsd ... well i hope to get leo to travel a little ... and if he's not well enough to do that - then we might get another kitty ... the knee jerk reaction as "no more pets!" ... but ? we'll see ...
