~ Thursday


When you are sorrowful
look again in your heart,
and you shall see
that in truth
you are weeping for that
which has been your delight.

~Kahlil Gibran
Princess:
We are reading your bloggies. They are delightful and bring us comfort.
We absolutely adore all of you, your care, concern and love.
Thank you.

Rosemary:
We are healing. slowly. or no, maybe not. I am crying and doing really nothing else.

Our home is sooo quiet without our loud gentle loving constantly purring tiger. Caesar was amazing. We called him the love tiger, but really Caesar was something more like a faithful friendly puppy dog.

what happened? We do not know, but I suspect with his failing kidneys and his heart murmur he might have caught a little bug on Saturday that went unnoticed. He was quite happy, and eating and being fairly active all day Saturday as we were home the entire day, however in the evening, he did not come to my bed as usual and say good-night and snuggle. He stayed in his little bed with Prinnie in their paradise room... and he just went so quietly in his sleep.

I am devastated. I lost my little boy.

Princess is very very strong. She is very independent and self assured.
I have made her about 5 cozy beds around the house. The one above is a new one. I made her a cozy nest of blankies on the couch and she jumped over to this chair (see above photo) and gave me this look, "could you move that stuff over here? I want to camp out over here today. Could you hurry up too?"
She is still calling Caesar in the night and we are going to her and comforting her and I slept with her the last two nights. She seemed very pleased to have me near.

All of this is so hard.
Almost too much to bear.
thank you for continued prayers.

Princess: We love you ~ thank you for loving us. We are hoping Blizzie might comehome for the week-end. Daddie could get her from the kollij.

We all love you very much and think about you all day long. It is very nice that you have some nice new nests. I hope you get comfort in knowing Caesar passed so peacefully in the paws of Prinnie. Don't worry about healing yet, its time to grieve right now and we grieve with you.

I am so sorry that you are going through this awful time. Emy and I will send our thoughts and prayers continually as I will try to cook more delicious things in honor of Caesar.

Be well.

Dear Rosemary and Princess,

I am so sorry.
I think, Caesar really knows something, so he decided to be with her sister at the last night. He knows you will be stronger than Princess, so he chosed to stay Princess at last.

Maybe right now Princess is stonger than you, but our softer heart has more tenacity.

I am still leaking time to time as well, I am so sorry, deeply. Adan and I will be here be with you. He will back into your dream, I know.

Lots of loves and hugs from here,
Michico and Adan

Princess, it is hard for a kitty as close as you were to Caesar to not be able to find him an cuddle. But you have to be brave.

Our thoughts and purrs are with you...

The Meezers said...

oh Rosemary {{{{HUGS}}}} I think about you all the time. I know that it's so hard. Caesar is really not far from you - he's in your heart where he has been forever and will always be.

Dr Tweety of da Fab Five said...

Dear Rosemary,

I don't know why I have been so touched by Caesar's passage, but all I can tell you is that I know how difficult it is to lose our little beloveds like this. And maybe, because Auntie Stinkie is fragile and nearly the same age, I grieve with you, before the fact. Does that make sense? All I can say, is that we are here supporting you. As much we can.. all of us strangers, from afar.

-Love, Dr TWeety's momee

Smeagol & Strider (Mystery & Gizmo too!) said...

We loves you too, Prinnie. We're still sendin' our strongest purrs for you and your whole family.

Pet's are 4 Life said...

poor princess. We knows how hard it is to lose a brofur. Purrs and headbutts. And remember, he's still watching over you...just from over on the other side of the rainbow.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

It is hard to watch our loved ones suffer when they have lost isn't it? Purrs to you and Prinnie. She is welcome to come share Georgia's pink blanket any time she wants a snuggle.

Karen Jo said...

I'm sorry I haven't been around the last couple of days. I caught a bug on Monday and just got back online today. You are in my thoughts and prayers all the time. I feel so for Princess and for you, too, Rosemary, and your husband and daughters. A weekend visit from Blizzie would be wonderful for all of you, I think.

Phoebe said...

Hello Prinnie and Rosemary. I'm glad that you are comforting each other. We keep sending our purrs to you.

Sounds like you is all doing good - you are allowed to be sad, tears help you heal your heart.

Curling up on a comfy bed sounds like a good way to rest and comfort yourself.

Sending you a thousand summer purrs.

Chen & Ollie said...

Oh Prinnie - you are such a strong girl and so sweet to worry about your mommy so much. Rosemary, you will get through this. Our mommy says she knows a little bit of your grief for when she lost our big brother Bingo after 18 years, the Bingo-sized whole in her heart was so big she never thought she would recover... Thankfully, that's where we came in and we helped fill up the whole in her heart and make her heart even bigger though she will never forget her special boy, Bingo. We are all sending you hugs and deepest purrss...

HRH Yao-Lin said...

aw guys...you poor things, I am so sad for you all. I do however think that you, Princess, are probably enjoying have all this attention - I am sure you are a tower of furry strength for your human during these bleak times. I am sad you are crying for your brother but that is to be expected, no matter how utterly poignant and sad that is. I am wishing you all the love and purrs I can xx

Riley & Tiki said...

Prinnie, that looks like a nice pile of blankies that you are napping on. We hope that Blizzie comes home for the weekend. We are still purring to help you and your family get through this tough time.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Rosemary, it is okay to cry. You will go through the grieving process, and you will heal in time. I still cry on occasion for my Whiskers, who went to the Rainbow Bridge in 2006. He was my first cat, and we grew up together (through my teenage years) so he meant a lot to me. Whiskers was a "love tiger" too, just like Caesar (and Dragonheart and Merlin). Getting Dragonheart a couple of months later certainly helped to fill the void in my heart, although he wasn't a replacement for Whiskers.

In time, the pain will fade, and you will be left with all the loving memories of Caesar. You will still miss him, and you will probably cry for him on occasion, just like I do for Whiskers, but you will remember all the wonderful times you had together.

You and in my thoughts and prayers, and the boys are sending their purrs out to you. *hugs*

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Princess, you are so woinderful to be such a comfort for your Mom. Kitties are so little, but they have so much love. Puurs and prayers to you all.

Jimmy Joe said...

Oh Princess and Miss Rosemary, we are all so sad that Caesar has gone on to the Bridge, and we know how heartbroken you feel. I am sure he has left his spirit in special places in your home, and I hope that Miss Blizzie feels his presence when she comes home and that it helps her, too, with her loss.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Daisy said...

It brought a lump to my throat to read your post. Caesar was such a special cat. Prinnie, you must be strong and brave! We know how difficult it is to lose a beloved kitty.

The Furry Kids said...

(((hugs))) to all of you. Caesar sure touched a lot of lives. He was a really special boy. You'll be ok, but it will take time. Just cry when you need to and grieve for your sweet boy. You're not alone in this. We're all here for you.
Love,
The Furry Kids' Mom

JB's Big World said...

I just wanted to stop by to see how you are doing. I know it can be so sad. We hope you feel better, and try not to be sad. Caesar is ok in kitty heaven and he is not alone.

Parker said...

Dear Prinnie, I have a feeling that you already know this, but you have such a wonderful Mommy and Daddy. I know you are getting all of the love and support from them that you could ever need. We just checked in and wanted to tell you how we have thought about you and prayed for you and lit a candle in Caesar's sweet memory. Know you are loved!
Smooches from Parker & Co.

Mickey said...

Our hearts ache for you because we cannot make things better. In so many ways, Caesar was so much a part of us too.So cute, friendly, loving and kind. We were all touched by that and in return formed the bond with him.Because we(your friends) are all compassionate beings we also feel your pain and loss.It reminds all of us that life is precious and fragile and not nearly long enough. We will always remember Caesar. Now, we will love you and be there for you.We all hope we can help you heal a tiny bit faster :)
Purras & Headbutts,Mickey & Mom

Tybalt said...

Princess, you are very brave. I think you are doing a good job of comforting your family. I hope the pain eases soon for you all. Purrrs.

Queen Snickers and Empress said...

Momma wishes we could jump through the computer and give you hugs and purrs. Please know we are doing that in our hearts. ~Queen Snickers, Empress and Kimmi

PB & J said...

Dear Prinnie,
I know how hard it is to be missing your big brother, I've been there too. Continue to be strong, continue to bask in the love of your family.
Purrs,
Jake and Pearl and Bert

Dearest Rosemary,
My heart is aching for you, as I remember going through the same thing. Caylynn is right, it gets easier - but grieve now, miss him, treasure his memory.
Take Care,
Amanda

The Furry Fighter said...

Aw...crying is part of the healing process. I still get a bit teary for my Sammie, Whiskers, Trevor, Whoppit, Weeble, Banshee and Double! I have such fond memories of them all though, the tears are kind of a happy sadness if you get my meaning.

I am relieved to see that Prinnie is being strong Rosemary...I was very worried about her.

Please now you must take good care of yourself, surround yourself with your family and love and just let out those feelings.

*HUGS*

More purrs for you. There is a hole right now that you just can't fill. In time it will fill with memories and love.

Penelope said...

We are so sorry to hear about your loss. It is a tragedy beyond words.

Ruis said...

Hey sweety ~ I am so glad Rosemary is your Mommie! All those warm, cozy beds around the house and sleeping in her arms. I think that is something you both need - very, very close together. And I am sure Caesar is watching all this, he wants his sister and mommie comforted by each other. And when you sleep together his spirit will be watching over you.

Rosemary, het is nog lang geen tijd om je beter te voelen. Deze pijn, het gemis moet een plaatsje krijgen. En dat gebeurt wel, maar heeft meer, veel meer tijd nodig. Begrip en liefde van je familie, vrienden en Princess en de mooie herinneringen en momenten aan Caesar zullen hier voor zorgen. Geeft het tijd! Jullie zijn geen moment uit Henny en Marlene's gedachten...

Purrs & love

Angus said...

Dear Prinnie and Rosemary, I think about you often and know that the Caesar-shaped hole in your lives aches. We're here!

it sounds like you're doing the right thing for Prinnie. she needs your extra cuddles like you need hers.
i hope Blizzie can come home so you can all comfort each other.

Pablo said...

Just stopped by to see how you all are coping. We're still purring for you all!

muffinmidi said...

Prinnie,
You have a very important job right now.You have to take good care of your mommy.She's missing Caesar terribly. She needs all your purrs and headbutts.

The Cat Realm said...

When Anastasia went the butler and the maid were sitting out in the garden, wondering how a little 8 pound cat could leave such a hole in the world... That hole is still there and always will be - but the daily live gets a little better every day. Which doesn't mean that the maid just two days ago - in the middle of taking a shower - broke down again crying like a waterfall.....
I don't think I will ever have a relationship like a had with Anastasia ever again - but I am glad Emil is here. Mrs. OZ didn't help - unfortunately you can't just substitute a loss of a friend with just any cat....
My heart is raw and sad when I think about you Prinnie... I am glad you have such understanding humans to help you... and many many many cats who send their purrs over to you. And all our humans send their love to your humans.
Caesar had a wonderful life. And a wonderful death too!
Zed had a good death too - the Vet was on the way already to give him the last shot (his human knew it was the day and didn't want Zed to suffer needlessly)- but Zed went before he arrived, with his human there with him.
We wish we could help you - but only time can take away a little of your pain - and it will!
Karl and the maid

Tara said...

Dear Prinnee, its so good you are being strong for your mom. She needs you now, so be sure to go to her and give and get love. I'm sure Caesar hears you when you call, he is watching out for you.
Tara

Rosemary: When we lost our dear first siamese after 18 years, it was extremely difficult. Like Caesar, she just laid down in the back yard and died. I think about her still, but now I smile instead of cry.
Tara's Mom Tina

Yoggie said...

I can imagine that it is pretty lonely and quite in your house now. But I am sure that you are a strong cat and give so much love to your humans as possible in this sad and hard time. I really miss Caesar, he was a nice buddy.

That would be a wunnerful thing. Bless your sweet fambly. You are all so speshul and filled with love. And the love you shared with Caesar will be with you fureffur.

Worlds of love and kittyhugs and warm purrs from MaoMao.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Dearest Prinnie and Rosemary -- my heart is with you and your wonderful family. I am glad that Prinnie is doing okay -- she is getting such love and care. And you know what, Caesar and Prinnie have reminded Mom of MaoMao and Dorydoo, only more mature -- MaoMao is so like Caesar in his temperament, and Dorydoo is much like Prinnie. Her heart goes out to you -- us Ballicai are her children, and the Kahlil Gibran verse expresses so well what a person goes through in grieving for a beloved soulmate.

We are here for you and with you, and we love you.

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Hello Prinnie and Rosemary. We just wanted to stop by and let you know that we are thinking of you. We love you very much. Hugs and purrs to you.

Ramses said...

You'z doing well to comfort each other at this time! Caesar would not have wanted you to be sad I'z sure of that... But that's easy to say, I'z know My Mummy still gets all weepy over her old cats at times and they passed over the bridge nearly 10 yrs ago, when d'boy was just a baby and keeping her so busy that she had little time to truly grieve... Take your time and love each other 'cause we all loves you and will be here when ever you'z feel like company...

I'z hope d'patter of little kitten feet will at least make you smile - that way I'z will know I'z not given up my nightly Mummy snuggle for nothing! ;)

Purrs,
Ramses

DEBRA said...

Prinny
I am so proud of you for being such a comfort to your Mom. I know how hard it must be on you too. Please know that Caesar is still there with you, and he will always fill your hearts with love. Every time you see a sunbeam he is right there just beyond the spectrum sending his warm love to you. Our thoughts are with you.

Purrs
Abby and Boo

Junior said...

I know you don't believe it right now, but it does get easier. Meowm was devastated when she lost She Who Came Before, China, then she got me and it helped her heart heal.

As I said before, take care of yourselves with proper food and rest. We don't want you getting sick on top of your loss.

We (Meowm and I) will continue our purrayers and we are sending big hugs and gentle headbutts to all of you.

FelineFrisky said...

I am so very sad for you. I, too, lost a beloved earlier this month. My little man Blessing went over the rainbow bridge, our house is very quiet with out him.

I cannot tell you how my heart aches for you during this time of grief. He is still with you, as his memory will live on through your memories of your time together. The pain will be replaced by love and it will not sting as sharply.

My thoughts are with you. God Bless.

Lorianna said...

I came by to see how you are doing. Oh do I understand how you feel. I am so so sorry. When Tookie passed I said to my husband that it felt like I had been beaten up and left for dead. I wanted to go with her. I know I need to stay here for my daughter and my other 3 kitties, but oh I just want my special one back! Slowly, smiles will come, and the sun will warm you. I will keep you and sweet Princess in my thoughts and prayers. Bless her heart, what a precious girl she is!
Gentle Hugs Honey,

Beau Beau & Angie said...

Feel our hugs. Let grief wash over you and wash away your tears.

Black Cat said...

My eyes are leaking for you. I so, so know what you're going through. Allow yourselves to grieve and to cry, because trying to suppress grief only leads to illness. You will always miss dear Caesar and will never stop loving him, but gradually you will remember him as he was rather than him as he isn't, if you see what I mean. He is still with you, you just can't see him. My heart goes out to you all. xxx

The Cat Realm said...

And sometimes there is nothing more to say and you just cry..... We meet Caesar everywhere we go in the Blogosphere to visit cats.
All cats are special. And some are even more special....

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

I just came to say good night as I am off to bed with my mommy now...she has a bad cold and is not happy today. Please have sweet kitten dreams of days gone by..those days when life was young and full of naps and sunsine. That is your history, it means you have lived a good life. Hope for tomorrow because there are still many days to enjoy.
Much love from Miss Peach and Karla

Eric and Flynn said...

We came by to say we are still sending our purrs to help give you strength. You will always miss Caesar, and it is good to cry and let out your grief. Time will help ease the pain, but you will always have days when he springs into your mind and brings fresh tears. When this happens, remember all the love and happy times he gave you.(((Hugs))) and purrrs furrom Eric and Flynn

Luna said...

Dear Princess and dear Rosemary, we come to say that we are thinking of you all the time !!!
We miss Caesar too. We are glad that you two are comforting to each other and Prinnie is not alone.
It will be nice if Blizzie comes home this weekend.
A lot of purrs and hugs to you
from Luna and Stefanie and the other German cats.

Monty Q. Kat said...

Dear Princess, I'm glad I could bring you a smile. I hope your heart is a little lighter today.

I live in Southern MD with my MomBean, I hope you're staying warm, it's cold here!

I hope Blizzie was able to come home this weekend.I think all of you could use a BIG Blizzie hug!

The Furry Fighter said...

Hello my sweet friends....just popping in to say hello and to tell you that we thinks about you and hope things are getting a little less painful for you...lots of love Stormie and family xxxx

Dorothy said...

Oh, Princess and Rosemary,

My eyes are leaking hard at the thought of you losing Caesar. So peacefully... though... so very quietly, he slipped off with the cat angels and went home again. I'm sorry for your loss. Your little tragedy happened during one of my own and you were so kind to be worrying and purring about me. Thank you for your prayers, purrs, and tears…you both very sweet.

I am glad to be home now. I think. It's going to be another long struggle, I'm afraid. These long, up-hill struggles are exhaustive. But I have learned a great deal from the blogosphere...everyone loves everyone...genuinely cares about everyone...mourns, laughs, and cries with everyone, and in times like these, genuine love and caring, are truly precious commodities to have. It feels good to have friends like all of you.

While Gretchen is purring and mourning for her friends... Caesar who has happily crossed the bridge, and Princess who is still grieving his loss… I shall be praying for that Caesar-sized hole in your heart to be healed, and hope I can offer some way of condolence to ease the pain you're having for your sweet tiger prince.

Our hearts hurt for you all…
Big hugs from Dorothy & Gretchen

Andrée said...

Caesar will live forever with all of us, hundreds of us, remembering him. And your sweet beauty in grief are role models for all of us. Love you.
