Farewell, Texas



Wednesday was a sad day in the Cat Blogosphere. Besides Texas, Lucinda and Tybalt's Grandmama's and Grandpapa's woofie went to the Rainbow Bridge. I'll blog about Lucinda tomorrow. I was really hoping that it would be longer before I would need to write this post about Texas. He had been battling lymphoma and doing pretty well, but it got into his nervous system and once that happens, little can be done. He did get to spend lots and lots of great snuggle and cuddle time with his Mom and Dad before it became obvious that he needed to take that last trip to the vet and depart for the Rainbow Bridge. Please give lots of hugs, purrs and kitty kisses to his Mom and Dad, who will miss him terribly.

Texas didn't want to leave Mom and Dad,
But the Bridge was calling, and now we are sad.
Now he's running free
Through woods and through lea,
Leaping for joy and playing like mad.

That is a lovely limmerick! It is always hard to say goodbye to our kitty friends. I am happy that Texas is at peace and playing like mad at the Bridge, but we all miss having him here.
I will give big purrs to his Mom & Dad who miss him so much.

Sorry to hear about Texas. I will ask our Pooh Bear to say hello to him when she sees him on the other side.

We know how you must hate to write these, but this one is especially beautiful Karen Jo. Well done, though we're sorry you had to.

Tybalt said...

A wonderful tribute to sweet Texas.

Thanks for the sympathy for Alyeska. She lived longer than most big doggies do, and it was just her time to go, but it is still very sad.

Purrrrrrrrs.
