Mancat Monday

Thank you to everyone who has left us purrs, prayers, hugs, love, and kind words.  We have not gotten to hardly anyone to thank them individually, but know that if we haven't gotten to you yet, we will.

It's hard to believe that it's been three days since we los our sweet Jewel.  I miss her more than I can ever express.

Carmine seems a little sad about it, but I don't think the reality of what's happened has quite hit him yet.  He was checking all the cubes for Jewel for about a day or so.  Now he's gone to spending a lot of time in the pink cube Jewel loved to spend time in.  Poor baby.

Our dear friend Robin from Playful Kitty made us this graphic.  Isn't it beautiful?  Thank you, Robin.  We love you!


  1. We're still sending you lots of purrs and hugs. Just give yourself the time and space you need to grieve.


  2. We continue to send you all comforting purrs and headbutts. We know how hard this is.

  3. We understand how much it hurts.
    We send lots of comforting purrs as well.
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure and JJ

  4. We too know how sad it is and we're still sending comforting purrs to you all.

  5. I know you heart is empty and aching be as gentle with yourself as you can. I hope the other kitties provide you with some comfort and we continue to send you mega purrs of healing.

  6. Purrrs and ((hugs)). We understand grief. Everyone grieves in their own way. Be with your kitties. Kitties know how to heal us!

  7. lots of snuggle and hugs speeding their way to you,xx Speedy and Rachel

  10. It will be hard for a while and then the memories will be sweet! Sending purrs and hugs xox

  11. Love the graphic that Robin made - very sweet. Hopefully Carmine will cope well.

  12. We know how hard it is ; we keep purring for you and your family. Purrs

  13. I am sending lots of purrs your way. My human hasn't gotten to very many people who sent her condolences either. She says that Binga and Boodie barely noticed when Sparkle left - she thinks that maybe they knew and said their good-byes the day before.

  14. It is so hard to accept the loss of your beloved Jewel, but hold on to your memories of the good times to help you through the bad ones. (((hugs)))

  15. We were so sorry to hear about Jewel. It's so hard to lose a precious furbaby. Know you have our sympathy and you are in our thoughts!

  16. I read about Jewel's passing on the Cat Blogosphere site, and came over to leave my condolences. What can one say to ease grief? I wish I knew. Godspeed, Jewel.

  17. We've been thinking about all the loss in the kitty community this past month or two and it's so sad that so many friends have gone to the Bridge. We hope time will heal the broken hearts you all have..........

    Hugs, Sammy and his Mom

  18. Mom, dad and I send our thoughts and prayers out to you. We know you miss your sweet Jewel. Just know that there are so, so many out here who can feel for you and share the sadness you feel when you lose a special furry friend. Stay strong..

  19. Poor Carmine, he probably likes being near Jewel's scent. Just like people, kitties all grieve in their own way.

  20. Reading about Carmine just breaks my heart. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  21. When Nico was in the process of dying, Anya wouldn't leave his side; they were litter mates, and I know that Anya hasn't forgotten this. When Nico was euthanized, Anya kept looking everywhere for him and even in his favorite spots, she would cry for him endlessly. I felt terrible and I still do to this day.

    Please take comfort in knowing that you definitely did the right thing for your Jewel, and that her and Nico are up in heaven together, running through the golden fields, and snuggling with each other. Nico sure has a lot of new friends to show her, and she's got a lot to meet and make! She's having a great time up there, but until then that you meet her once again, she will remain forever in the hearts who were lucky enough to meet such an awesome cat.

    For Jewel:

    Do not stand at my grave and weep.
    I am not there, I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn's rain.
    When you awaken in the morning's hush,
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there, I did NOT die...

    Read this when Nico died from the heartbreaking HCM, great comfort.

    Ragdoll Mommy, Saphira, Anya, Star, Renato, and Angels Tadpole and Nico~

  22. Poor Carmine. And poor you. We are still purring and praying for you all.

  23. Sending lots of purrs and giant, giant hugs to you all.

  24. We are so sorry that Jewel has gone to The Bridge, she was a lovely senior gal and she could not have been more loved or cared for. Run free Jewel!

    & The Ape xx

    PS: We left a comment the day we heard but it must have been eaten by Blogger.
