Stories, events and life in general from Miss Kitty's point of view


Ah Friday

How quickly the hours pass as another week comes and goes the way of the others. Days get shorter, and sunny spots are harder to find. Dad has been busy on the computer all day, stopping by my pillow when he is taking a break to stretch his legs. Though he disrupts my meditations, I welcome his company.

Dad shares with me some sad news, for a few hours ago he learned of Molly crossing over to the other side of the bridge. She had clung on until mum came back from her trip and when she held Molly, she slowly slipped away, closing her eyes for the last time. Our hearts go out to them, for daddy knows how it feels to lose a friend and companion in ones arms.

We are both quiet, looking out of the window of our balcony into the garden. Watching how the wind plays with the last few minutes of the late afternoon light filtering through the few remaining leaves clinging to the branches and casting magical moving shadows before us. Dad gentle messages my back and neck, then gives me a few paw rubs that always make me purr much louder, as I soak up a few more sun puddles.

This is a big over-sized pillow it’s so very comfy, especially with the soft furry blanket on top. One cannot help but want to sink into a deep slumber. Oh well, time for another ‘power nip’ before dinner. 

Life is indeed good . . .

Liebe Miss Kitty,

wieder so wunderschöne Bilder! Jetzt ist der Herbst da - ruhige Momente mit unseren Menschen. Genieße die schönen Momente mit Deinem Dad, in denen er ganz für dich da ist!

Ich kenne diese Molly leider nicht (eine andere Molly gehört meiner Schwägerin), aber ich wünsche ihr eine gute Reise über den Regenbogen! Fast 19 Jahre ist ein gutes Alter, aber Abschied ist immer schwer! Kerstin und ich wissen das auch.

Alles Liebe und Gute!

Finchen mit Ayla und Kerstin

Another lovely post Miss Kitty - we are very sad about poor Molly too - so many kitties have gone to the Bridge recently.
You look very comfy having your "Power Nap" before watching over your Dad's work and snoopervising his efforts.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Dear Miss Kitty,
It breaks our human hearts whenever one of our dear little ones passes over. We so treasure the gift of your companionship.

Find that sunny spot and bask in the warm light. Rest, knowing that you are loved.

Mishkat said...

Miss Kitty, we were very sad to hear about Molly too. Our mom says it makes her treasure the time she has to spend with us - and we can tell that your dad feels the same way. We are glad that you and he have each other.

Many purrs from Franklin, Dobby, and your fellow former feral, Tasha

Hi there Miss Kitty. It is nice to meet you. It sounds like you have a wonderful Daddy.
We are very sad about Molly too.
Hope you have a great day and a great week end.

Hi Marg,

Looks like you now fixed your link since your site comes up after clicking on your name.

Miss Kitty,
We enjoy a caress (or four or five)while we meditate, also. Your pillow looks purrfect to lounge on and think about our Pals like Molly who have gone before us.

Miss Kitty
What glorious thoughts you have communicated in your lovely posting. Those autumnal sunbeams over your beautiful furrs are indeed glorious. We have been reflecting on Molly and how sad it is to lose a friend of so many years. We will purr softly for Molly and light our candle.


Lucy the Cat said...

We didn't know Molly, but it's always sad to hear of a dear pet's passing. It is so painful missing them. We are so sorry for Molly's family.

Your post is lovely and so are your pictures. I love your pillow. :)

The Island Cats said...

Hello, Miss Kitty!
We were very sad when we heard about sweet Molly. We send purrs to her mom who is missing her so much.

We hope you enjoy your weekend with your Dad.

That sure was a beautiful post, Miss Kitty. We, too, are very sad about Molly having to go to the Rainbow Bridge. We are praying and purring for her mom and dad during this difficult time.

We hope you and your Dad have a wonderful weekend.

P.S. thanks for stopping by, and for your nice comments! :)

Wie traurig für die Familie von Molly. Ich kenne Molly nicht, aber ich muß immer etwas weinen, wenn jemand seine Katze verloren hat. Katzen sind tief in Menschenseelen verankert und man verliert ein Stück von sich selbst wenn sie gehen.

die Fotos, die ihr Dad von ihnen gemacht hat, berühren auch die Seele. Wunderbar,wie er es versteht, das Licht auszunutzen und mit den Fotos ihre Gedanken sichtbar werden läßt.
LG Christiane und Ninifee

danke für deinen lieben Eintrag in meinen blog. Leider ist mein Englisch nicht ganz so gut um so zu schreiben. Du hast wirklich eine wunderschöne Seite.

Das mit Molly ist sehr sehr traurig, ich hatte auch mal einen Kater 19 Jahre lang. So ein Abschied ist furchtbar traurig.

Liebe Grüße


Luzia said...

Liebe Miss Kitty, auch wenn 19 Jahre ein schönes Alter ist - ein Abschied schmerzt immer! Es tut mir leid um Molly und ich hoffe, dass es ihr gut geht, da wo sie nun ist.
Du machst es genau richtig, wenn Du Dich schonst und von Daddy verwöhnen lässt, denn eine regelmäßige physiotherapeutische Maßnahme wie Massage oder manuelle Therapie ist wichtig für die Katzendame! Aber achte darauf, dass Daddy nicht zuviel vor dem PC sitzt, denn er braucht auch etwas Bewegung für seine Gesundheit:-)) Vielleicht solltest Du doch ab und zu einmal mit ihm spazieren gehen, wenn sie Sonne scheint?! Ich wünsche Euch eine schöne neue Woche mit vielen Sonnenstrahlen. Herzliche Grüße von Luzia.

Thank you for letting us know about Molly. I went to pay my respect, even though I felt like an intruder. So sweet of you.

Glad you had a lovely day chasing the sun and enjoying your massage.

Hi Miss Kitty, I was very sorry to hear a doggie chased you and hurt you so badly you had to go to the Vet. Thank you for giving me a chance to be friends. ~Fenris

We were very sad to hear of Molly's going to the bridge.


Banana and Cheese said...

Dear Miss Kitty,

So sorry to hear about Molly. We will be thinking of you all.

What a beautiful cat you are!!!

Debrina said...

Sorry Miss Kitty that Molly has gone...we lost three of ours in a row last year (two from old age and a third, far younger, from cancer). It was a horrible and sad year. I came over here because I love your owner - he is a sweet and kind man and also because I miss my cat friends. And now I'm crying becuase Molly has reminded me of my last moments with my special friends.

Cat said...

Hello Miss Kitty, I have not been doing much visiting since Molly died, and I did not know you had mentioned her on your blog until just now.

How kind of you to offer so much comfort and I thank you most sincerely. I have been very touched by the outpouring of compassion from friends old and new. It has made this difficult time a little easier to bear.
