Remembering Our Princess

Today I am going to tell you about Princess.
When I came to live here in my forever home, I had a nice sister named Princess.

She was an olde lady but a very cute one, a little crouchy but that was because she was rickety, also I was new and she just lost her beloved littermate Caesar.
Prinnie was born, with her tuxie brother Caesar in 1991 on April 15th
Mommie got Caesar and Princess in July of that year.
Here they are in their new forever home.

Blizzie was only 3 years old and Christabelle was only 6!!

Princess was a good girl when she was a kitten, but she liked to get into things. Once she went behind the washer and came out all black - ew.
Once she was in the unfinished basement and she climbed into the insulation. Mom had to cut her out.
these two were quite a team
the beans have a lot of good memories
Caesar and Princess were two good cats!

Last year, Missie Princess went to the bridge. Caesar was calling her to come home.
Missie Peachies' mom made this lovely picture for us

Princess was so curly

and just like a pink flower.
She was really smart and beautiful

Dear Princess
sweet sweet snowy white flower ~ We miss you so so soooo much
We can not believe it has been a whole year since you went to the bridge to be with your brother Caesar.
Sometimes we still cry when we think about you.
We miss you.

*sigh* two best friends
together again.

pretty in pink
You really were our sunshine

Ever absent, ever near;
Still I see thee, still I hear;

Yet I cannot reach thee, dear!

~Francis Kazinczy

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

Gratitude is the memory of the heart.

This beautiful heart felt and loving tribute to Caesar and Princess made my mommy's eyes leak a lot. She knows that feeling of still loving and missing a fur babe.

Mum is having a weep over your Prinnie - she did visit as a lurker in the last few months of her life and remembers when you were brought to join Prinny there Pierro.
We know you will always remember her with love.

Pierro, She reminds me of our Monique. Looks, talent, and personality. Monique was a swiss coffee color, maybe blond you'd say.

It's been two years and right about this time. I still can't talk about her much. I'll always miss her.

Beau Beau & Angie said...

Such nice words about Princess. She is still the apple of yur eye. We didn't remember dat she liked Insulation like Beau Beau. Don't know what it is about dat stuff.

Hi Pierro. We think this is such a beautiful tribute to Prinnie. We didn't meet her till the day before she left for the bridge, but we read about her and she sounded like such a wonderful girl. We know you must miss her a lot but we are sure she is watching over you every day and helping you to be the wonderful mancat and big brother you are!

What a lovely tribute. We know you miss both Prinnie & Caesar terribly.
