Mancat Monday ~ Remembering Caesar

one year ago today.....
Princess: we had our last day with our handsome love tiger Caesar, he was my litter-mate and sweet brother.
This post was made by our good friend MissPeachie last year.
we love it. Thank you MissPeach

QUIETLY I WENT INTO THAT GENTLE NIGHT...

I will miss your happy face my beloved friend Caesar...

You have left to prepare a place for us...

You were the bravest Mancat I ever met!
Living a quiet life with those you love...

With GREAT courage in the face of trials...
Each colorful day,
you brightened it even more!
A friend to all...
Full of adventure when your days were new...
with your beloved Princess as kittens you two!
Always a splendid mancat,
gazed out across your world.
Thank you for the pleasure
we had knowing you were in our lives...

Your big shadow remains never to be filled,
like the void in our heavy hearts...
Don’t say, We have come now to the end.
White shores are calling.

~~~~~
You and I will meet again.
And you’ll be here in my arms, just sleeping.

~~~
What can you see, on the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
~
Across the sea, a pale moon rises.
The ships have come, to carry you home.

Our sweet Caesar
April 15, 1991 ~ January 20, 2008
I think about you constantly,
whether it's with my mind
or my heart.

~Albany Bach Reid

To all of our friends,
Thank you for helping us get through this year.

We could not have made it without all of you
We love you very much

Friendship isn't a big thing
-
it's a million little things.

Love, most gentle purrs and headbonkies from Pierro,
Princess
and Pierro

A year has passed,

oh my a whole year. doesn't it seem like yesterday and a thousand years at the same time? We know that's how we felt on the one year anniversaries of Norton and then Trixie. The pain and loss so close and distant at the same time. Our purrrrss and purrayers are with you. We hope that you set aside some time to have a happy celebration of Caesar's life.
