Tuesday update

Princess:

We are overwhelmed with your sincere loving attention and thoughts. Thank you for this. We really need it. Mommie has not been well. She won't eat or sleep.
I cannot find Caesar!?!
Mommie made me a bed with Blizzie's blankets from her bed and put them near mommies bed. I woke up many times throughout the night to go find Caesar and tell him it was time to sleep with me in the dark. I can not find him. mommie and dad got up many times through out the night to help me find him, and then they would pet me and tell me how they loved me so much.

Rosemary:
Yesterday we brought Caesar's still quiet body to our wonderful and very very caring vet. We had planned to have him cremated with their services located in Western Pennsylvania which would take two weeks, but this morning I woke up wrought with worry. I could not imagine Caesar's body rumbling along in a truck over the hills and valleys through Virginia and Maryland and then into Pennsylvania.
We will take Caesar's casket from the vet and bring it to a local Family Pet cremation place here in town. Hubby spoke with them. They seem very caring. I feel this is a much more comforting situation for us and for Caesar's blessed body.
I cannot describe to you the Caesar sized hole in my heart and what it is doing to me.
Suffice to say that my husband has been doing everything, taking care of all of the details. He has put his grief on hold. Caesar and daddy shared a beautiful and special bond being the men in the house.

I can just tell you that after having this beautiful and most generous and gentle tiger that stuck to me like velcro for 17 years... this is the most very most incredible loss for all of us. I am still in a state of utter disbelief!

Please pray for Blizzie in Pennsylvania at college. She is suffering greatly and will come home on the 30th. Then we will take good care of her.

Thank you for for your love. It is an overwhelming comfort.
I love all of you, ...and Princess. . . we will take good care of her.
Thank you for taking care of us.
Your sympathies and condolences and caring, the Mancat Monday and other beautiful tributes are such an unbelievable comfort. I tried to visit all of you. You are such incredible friends to surround us with this. We feel bathed in your love and all of you are oh so loved by me.


Even hundredfold grief is divisible by love. ~Jareb Teague

Grief shared is grief halved
Thank you
precious and very sweet friends

We've left a tribute to Caesar on our Tuxedo Tuesday - from one young tuxie to a wise tuxie that is gone.

Mommy is weeping for you and your loss, as it opens old wounds. Take care and be well. We're purring for you.

Captain Jack and Sir Dante said...

Hang in there. The pain will never go away but it will get better, we promise. Hugs and Purrs to all of you!

michico*Adan said...

My eyes are leaking again. I will never forget Caesar. Although I can't hug you at this taugh time, but our hearts are all supporting you.
You are very very strong updating, I am also very grateful for your posting, please get some rest, ok? Even just a little bit~!

Our life doesn't have many 17 years, yes, 17 years is a very big heavy memory here. This is the heavy we can to this life, to this world, And so is Caesar and everyone of us.

I believe Caesar is very happy at the rainbow bridge and protecting you and Princess and his daddy.

DEBRA said...

We are all very sadden by the loss of sweet Caeser...we only found out this morning after being away for several days. Our heartfelt prayers goes out to you with warm hugs...you are in our thoughts...

A Message from Heaven

Speak not of death
for there is no such thing-
there is merely a parting of the ways.
I will walk on a little while
and wait
for you to count the sum of all your days.
And when you come
you'll find me waiting
with shining eyes
and silken well groomed fur.
You'll take me in your arms
just as you used to do
and angel choirs will be
drowned out by purrs.
~ By Helen Mack

Purrsss

We are so sorry for your loss. May sweet memories of Caesar help your hearts to heal.

Purrs from Shilgiah, Tommy and their Mom.

The Meezers said...

Rosemary, oh dear friend, we are all here with you. my heart hurts for you like it hurt when I lost my ralphie and norton and trixie. it's completely devastating and we understand. I had ralph and trixie and norton creamated and their ashes are with me. i truly think the hardest part of losing each of them was turning their little bodies over to the vet. it was so...final. and heartwrenching.
all of here in the cat blogosphere are here for you to lean on. don't ever forget that we all love you.

Boy said...

I just saw this sad news today and mine heart is bweaking with sadness. I'm sending all of mine purrs over for the entire famiwy. Do take care.

Stephanie said...

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your sweet Caesar. He was a gorgeous cat.

I came across your blog in the "Tuxedo Gang Hideout" and just thought I'd say hi. I noticed from your bio that we live very close to each other!!

Tybalt said...

I am purring very hard for Princess and her family. I know it is a horrible and gaping loss in your lives. I only hope that soon you will be able to wake up and know that Caesar loves you very much and is watching you even now, and you can greet that thought with a smile and not with tears.

Ali & Fiona said...

Even though we never met in person we feel very close to all of you. Our momma feels like she has lost one of us and that makes her terribly sad. We hope you take care of yourself.

Purrs & Love!

The Furry Kids said...

I start crying every time I think about you guys. It's just so hard to lose a furbaby. Just cry when you need to and take it easy on yourself. You're grieving, it's real, and it hurts so much. (((hugs))) We're all just so sorry. Please know that we're thinking and purraying for all of you.

Love,
Titus, Tazo, EG, & their Mom

Ruis said...

Also here in Holland we are still in shock and disbelieve that Caesar went to the bridge. We are purring very, very hard for you, Mommie, Daddy and Blizzie.

I was not able to update my blog for a while and still I don't get as much time as a want. But Marlene helped me yesterday with Mancat Monday for Caesar, only since today our blog is closed for unknown reasons (we wrote blogger an email).

Rosemary, you are all in our thoughts!

Miral gives her twin sister a big sweet nose kiss!!

love,

HRH Yao-Lin said...

oh my heart goes out to you all. How heartbreaking, you crying for your brother and your humans following and comforting you. It is too sad for words. I am sending so much love to you all, so much, and I am praying for Caesar who I am sure is having a lovely time at the bridge but must be missing you like crazy xx

Queen Snickers and Empress said...

We are all still thinking and purring for your family. Our hearts ache and eyes leak for you. It seems Empress does not like momma to cry and started cuddling her. She faced her fears and started sleeping with us so she could be near momma. What a blessing it is to have those you care about, and care about you, around you when your heart is filled with grief. ~Queen Snickers

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

I can't imagine how hard it is to loose such a special friend after 17 years. I am so sorry Prinnie that you can't find him! It must just not make sense to you at all. We are all purring for you and we'll teleport over but we know its not the same.

Kaze

Celeste said...

I am so very sorry for the pain everyone is feeling. Princess,Just know that your friend is with you always. Rosemary, he was happy and loved always with you.

Tara said...

We are thinking about all of you during this difficult time. Poor Princess must feel lost. Even though I know she already received this award, I have her the "Your so special" award for being there with Caesar when he needed her most.

Purrs and thoughts

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

My thoughts and prayers are with you and Princess.
Please take good care of each other right now and know you have lots of purrs and prayers from all of us.

The Furry Fighter said...

hello Princess and Rosemary my dear friends...i miss Caeser so i can't even begin to imagine the pain you are feeling right now. My Poor Prinnie...looking for your brother, i was hoping that maybe cos he went to the Bridge whilst you were sleeping next to each other that you may have an idea that he isn't in the house anymore...i guess this will take time. When I went away for 9 days to the Vet Place last year Castle missed me terribly, I guess - like you - being littermates makes us that little bit closer. (It didn't stop Castle hissing and growling his face off at me though when I came back smelling of the Vet Place!!!).

You are loved so much on the Blogosphere, the support has been amazing, i am so glad that this comforts you. My meowmie keeps getting leaky eyes too, it is so hard to say goodbye to little friends...and 17 years of shared life is just incredible.

You really did give Caeser the best home he could have dreamt of - he got to stay with a litter-mate AND he was surrounded by love all his life.

Goodnite my friends...try to sleep a little better tonight...*hugs*

Daisy said...

Prinnie, Caesar has not truly left you; I am certain that he is watching over you from the Bridge. When it is my time to go to the Bridge, I will look for him. We will have such fun playing together! I know the sadness must seem so great right now, but in time, you will remember Caesar with smiles instead of tears. My thoughts are with you.

Derby said...

Do you have a blanket or something with Ceasar's scent on it for Prinnie to curl up with? She has to grieve too.

Angus said...

My mom and I are grateful to have know Caesar, and our hearts grieve for you, Prinnie, and for your family. It hurts my heart to think of you looking for Caesar and not finding him. My purrs and purrayers are with you all.

Mickey said...

Oh Princess,my heart breakes for you :( To lose a sibling after so long,I cannot imagine.I am not with my littermates. I wish I could come and purr with you.
Mom is very sad too. She worries because I will be 15 this summer.
We know that passing on is part of life,but we do not like it! Not one bit!!
This will take a long time to get over.That's because Caesar was such a wonderful Mancat!
You are a wonderful Ladycat too!
Purrs and hugs,Kisses and purrayers
We love you big bunches!!!!!
Mickey and Mom

Cheysuli and gemini said...

I think most everyone in the cat blogosphere has lived through or dreads the day when they live through what you are going through. Each cat is unique and some of them just grab our hearts in unexpected ways, bonding more deeply than we could ever imagine.

It is particularly difficult to loose those cats.

We have no doubts that Caesar's spirit is watching you and wishing he could spare you this pain of loss.

Our most sincerest condolences and purrs.

Chairman Mao said...

Oh Prinnie, both Momma and Daddy gotted leaky at the thought of you lookin and lookin fur Caesar. You two were the furry bestest of furriends and brothur and sistur fur almost sefunteen years -- and that's a wunnerful length of time to share with yur kitty soulmate. But alla our hearts ache fur the grief you feel, with missin him. He will nefur, efur be forgotten, and the love you shared with him will always surround you.

We are purrin fur Blizzie, and we love you and yur fambly furry much.

Kittyhugs and purrs and heart fulls of love from MaoMao and the Ballicai and the Ballicus Beans.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Dear and precious Prinnie -- my heart goes out to you, sweet dear. Caesar was your best friend, soulmate, and brother for such a long time -- so many years of love and wonderful memories, but I know it is hard now that he is at the Bridge. Please know that I love you and your sweet family -- we are purring for all of you and you are in our hearts at this difficult time.

Much love and purrs and warm snuggles from Marilyn.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

...and dear Prinnie, Caesar will always be your best friend, brother, and soulmate -- from the Bridge, but he still loves you and your family -- love is forever.

More love and purrs to you.

Lux said...

Oh, my precious Prinnie - I will so miss my friend Caesar, as I know you do, too.

Please give your family lots of of purrs and cuddles from us,

Luxie

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Poor Prinnie, yoo must miss yoor brofur teribly. Zippy went thru dat after Punkin went to the bridge. Mommy let her sleep on Punkin's baby blanket for awhile...We're still sending loving purrs to yoo and yoor fambly.

Gattina said...

You don't have to describe the pain you are feeling right now, I know what it is I went through that twice after 20 years of life together. It is a very good decision to have him cremated near your place. We burried all our pets under our wheeping willow tree. Over the time it had become a little grave yard. There are two cats, one dog, a guinny pig and a hedgehog burried there. My cats to show their affection use this place as a litter box very often !

Marilyn MonREOW said...

For when you're feeling like it, I just wanted to let you know that I gave you an award: Bloggers of the World.

You and Caesar and your dear family are a delight in the cat blogging world -- know, always, that you are loved all over the world, and your precious brother Caesar will never be forgotten.

Much love from Marilyn.

Princess & family... we are still thinking of you. Purrs to you all...

Skeeter, LC, and Ayla said...

Princess, we unnerstand your confooshun. We have been lookin at each ofer the past day tryin to think of one of us not bein here fer nappin together or head licks, etc. We cant imagine it.

So we can only guess at how much loss you feel wif Caesar not bein there. Our puurs an thoughts go out to ya...

Poppy Q said...

Oh poor wee Caesar fambly, we are feeling your pain and know it must be super hard for you all. Take your time and be sad.

It may sound kooky, and probably is, but my mum has Puss's ashes (in a little wooden box) in her bedroom. when she goes to her own rainbow bridge she is going to take any cats ashes with her, and they can then be altogether. She knows Puss would like this.

You be kind to yourselves and take it easy. Give Princess a big hug from me, and I is sending you purrs and wishes for restful dreams across the ocean.

Caesar had a lucky life - having so much love in it.

Poppy Q

Tina T-P said...

I am so sorry to learn of your loss. Our Sinda is 17 also and when another older kitty goes to the bridge, I wonder how soon it will be her turn.

It sounds like you have many happy memories of your sweet boy. I hope they will sustain you during this sad time. Fondly, T.

La Gata Lola said...

Oh, It's so sad, poor Princess, she must be feeling so alone, searching for her buddy... :'(
17 it's a lot of years, I know how you feel, it's very hard. I send you a big hug... Give Princess a lot of love, I'm sure you will take good care of her.

Kisses & Purrrs

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

Dearest Prinnie...I will come and stay with you tonight...when you wake and want to wander...I will be beside you and comfort you back to slumber. I know you like blus, so I will bring my fuzzy blue blanket.
Dearest Rosemary...Expect a small packet in the mail...it is going out tomorrow for you. At this sadest time you MUST take good care of yourself. You need to take time to cry and grieve and remember and smile on the happy memories that blessed you these past 17 years....
Your friend Karla and Miss peach

Parker said...

Dear Prinnie - We lit a candle last night and said a prayer that you and your family will begin to feel some healing comfort. We love you very much and our hearts are so heavy for your loss.
Smooches to you dear girl. We cannot imagine how awful all of this is.
Love and purrs.

Isis said...

Oh Prinnie, iffen I'z could I'd offer you my bestest blanket and a nice warm kitty snuggle - including the necessary ear cleaning of course! ;) Your lovely brother was a truly wonderful Mancat and I'z feel very privileged to have had the chance to know him, even iffen it was only for a pretty short time...

So don't cry Prinnie and do take the time to hug your Mommy... Since Caesar shared his name with my very own Mummy (her maiden name), his name will one day live again - in fact it was the very first name Mummy put on my list of possible future kitten names! I know it is but a small gesture, but I am but a small cat...

Iffen you've feel up to it in about 3-4 weeks time I'z havin' a Ladycats only tea party where we'z can have lots of girlycat talk...

Till then I'll be thinking of you...

Many purrs,
Isis

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Prinnie and Rosemary, we are thinking of you, and purring and praying for you, and for Caesar, who is now at the Rainbow Bridge. We will also purr and pray for Blizzie and the rest of your family. Know that we love you and you are in our hearts, our thoughts, and our prayers.

Cynthia Rae said...

As the mother of two 12 year old cats, your post brought tears to my eyes. I hope that the memories of your wonderful cat will help get you through the difficult times ahead. This is a saying that always helps me with the loss of a loved one...

"As long we we can love each other, and remember the feeling of love we had, we can die without ever really going away. All the love you created is still there. All the memories are still there. You live on-in the hearts of everyone you have touched and nurtured while you were here".

-Morris S. Schwartz: Tuesdays With Morrie

Sending you a big hug from Italy,

Christine and FAZ said...

We are devastated by your news, it is too sad to bear. We cannot begin to tell you how much we will miss our dearest friend Caesar. We cannot imagine what darling Princess is going through. Christine and Faz

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

We just wanted you to know that we are thinking of you and we love you very much.

*hugs* *purrs*

Junior said...

Please remember to take good care of yourselves during this time. I know it is hard, but you must get your rest and get your food in you. Snuggle each other close and take some comfort from that. Meowm and I will purray and purray for your hearts to begin healing.

Pet's are 4 Life said...

We will miss him, he was a very special mancat and an adorable ambassador for the cornish rex breed.
Best wishes for all your family during this time of grief.

Sending many purrs to you, Prinnie and your family. We are so sorry.

Caesar will live in your heart until you are together again.

The Crew said...

My heart goes out to your family.

The bond between cats is very strong. We had 2 sisters, Mia & Shadow, who lived to 14. When Shadow passed, Mia was so depressed she became gravely ill and died a month to the day later. Needless to say, we were distraught from our loss. Our home was so empty, 2 months later we adopted George & his littermate sister Gracie.

When George lost Gracie suddenly at six years old, he searched the entire house for her for weeks, day and night, crying out for her. My husband and I got so worried about him becoming ill with grief, we decided to get him a kitten and that's how Tipper was adopted.

Give Prinnie extra love and be sure she continues to eat.

Crew's Mom

PB & J said...

Just checking in - hope you are getting some sleep.

Purrs,

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Prinnie, I read your comment and thought I would come over and purr with you and your Momma. I have a very soft purr. I hope she doesn't mind if sometimes I just touch the of my paw to her face?
