A big huge thank you to Stella! This is our late great Z Cat that she cartooned on a mouse pad. She does it from her store on her blog Mollie and Alfie. I think it is so dang cute. We will be putting it on the wall or just setting it on the sun porch table! Stella you did great! A stand up happy tail, green eyes and her red brick nose!
And this little bunny timer was in the package! So cute!! Stella you are too funny.. Thank you so much. We are getting a kick out of him. Hey, he needs a name!
I am taking this Sunday again this year to remember this kitty. Not that I don’t think of her every single day several times each day. She is so missed. Our Z Cat, Country Cat, Fuzz Face, Fuzz Butt, Z Catter. And she isn’t the only pet we think about on Pet Remembrance Day. There are more loved kitties, four dogs, horses, two feathery funny cockatiels, a Green Cheek Conure Bud Bird and a few hamsters. So many that made our hearts lighter and taught us lessons about how to love and how to live. To live in the moment and live every moment with happiness. All my pets taught me about kindness. Last year’s Pet Remembrance post was inspired by Isobel at IsobelandCat’s blog. She had recently lost her cat Freddie and I thought her idea of Pet Remembrance Day was the sweetest thing to remember all our pets. Because it isn’t just my pets and CH’s pets we will be thinking about today, but the pets all over the world that have made their human’s life richer, filled with laughter, tears and the pure happiness of companionship. Z Cat you are tucked tightly in a very special place in my heart. I know you are there. I feel and see you every day. You came at a special time in my life and saved me in so many ways. Thank you.
So tonight CH and I will light candles and put them in the window and we will raise a glass of Missouri wine in the happy remembrance of all the pets that found their way into hearts all over the world and made us better people and taught us about love and respect and dignity till the end. And we will celebrate the pets that are living and filling hearts with their sweet companionship.
These were Country Cat’s YELLOW ducks. She couldn’t go by them without giving them a good hard right paw knocking them into the tub and running like she was gonna get it. She always got it too, she got chased and heard “I’m gonna get you”, she was scooped up and got lots of love and a big kiss placed on the side of her Fuzz Face. Then repeat and repeat and repeat.
Joining Sunday Stills for the color YELLOW!
Isobel from IsobelandCat’s blog is remembering her kitty tonight. Her kitty Gorgeous Freddy but better known as Cat on her blog, a ginger boy she loved with all her heart. It is very close to this time that Cat passed away. She has NotCat now and her blog is full of his ginger self. But today it is about Cat and all the other pets in Isobel’s life. She is asking that we all join in and light a candle today and tonight and put it in a window to remember the pets in our own lives and to remember Cat too. She suggests we all clink a glass of something of your choice. So tonight CH and I will be having a glass of wine and clinking glasses with Isobel and anyone else that would like to remember the wonderful animals that have been a part of your life and made your heart happy. Please click here for Isobel’s post one week after Cat died last year. And click here for her post about her lovely idea to remember our pets today.
This kitty will be in our hearts tonight as she is every day along with Cat and all the other pets that hold a special place in the heart of their person. She is our Z Cat, our Country Cat, Z Catter, Fuzz Face. She was the cat of my life. She left us January 17, 2009. And there is a long list of others. Our Holly Cat, Spanky, Tinker, Sleepy, Grumpy. There are childhood dogs and a cat. Dutchie my Dachshund, my Sheltie Happy and a Taffy cat. Herman, CH’s much loved Heinz 57. There was the horse of my life, Ladies Dance and Rumbles, Sugarfoot, Rumbles Too and Dizzi.
So, Isobel thank you so much for beginning this tradition. Our hearts are with you on this day as you think of your special sweet memories of Cat, your Gorgeous Freddy Boy.
