I got home from work tonight and found a comment from Jan of Jan's Funny Farm saying that Caesar had gone to the Rainbow Bridge. I felt like someone had punched me right in the heart. I have been reading Caesar and Prinnie's blog right from the start and love them both dearly, along with their family. My eyes are so teary it's hard to type and I am having a really hard time to find words to say how deeply I feel for his family and how sorry I am that he has gone and how very much I will miss him. He was such a kind and gentle mancat. I always treasured getting comments from him and Prinnie. He was so brave about getting his fluids and showed Prinnie how easy it was, so that she came to accept hers, too, without so much fuss. If he had to go, I'm glad that he went peacefully in his sleep with Prinnie beside him.
Caesar, dear Caesar, slipped softly away.
His eyes didn't open to greet the day.
With Prinnie beside him
And God's light to guide him
He softly and silently tiptoed away.
