We Are Trying To Move On...

Your minute of prayer was an enormous comfort for all of us! We sure felt it and we know wherever Anastasia is, she felt it too!
Your energy seem to have catapulted the staff out of their utter despair onto the road of mourning.

Right after the prayers the maid actually said this to the butler:

It would be just like her to show up NOW, after all this grieve and effort and heartbreak and to just wonder why the maid lost weight, the butler has red eyes, Karl seems subdued and why the heck is there a "SHRINE" - yuk! - on my favorite place???

Yep. That is her, our beloved Anastasia, with a personality so big - it will always be with us!

She had unpublished posts prepared - I will post those in the next days.

She had a Dare prepared - I will execute that for her in the beginning of October.

She will always be a part of The Cat Realm!

My condolences go out to her loverboy
Monte. It was so wonderful for me to watch your love for each other grow - she had a TT prepared about you - I will post that also. I know she would want you to know how she felt. I am so sorry, Monte. I miss her too!
I am forever in the debt of the Cat Blogosphere - your compassionate support just blew me away. I do not know how I would get though these hard times without you guys!

I will visit you all, please do not be upset if it'll take me some days, I am still feeling very exhausted and sad.

We know that her three years with us were the most happy a cat can hope for, she enjoyed every single day immensely, we hope this might give you the same comfort that it does give to us. I will write her whole story and post it sometime in the future too.

We will love her forever.

Thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart!

Karl

Love never dies. Not ever. Hold onto that. And though I can't help but hold onto hope, my heart goes out to you, Karl, and your family.

HAHA EXCELLENT SHRINE!! Exactly how it should be darlings!!

I am sure Anastasia is around, sprinkling scorn and contempt wherever she is!

I will miss her dreadfully, it is so sad! x

I will never, ever forget Anastasia. It will be so bittersweet to see her final posts and contests, but it will be a great tribute to her.

Her spirit stays with each of us. We still send love.

Keep your memories of dear Anastasia, they are very precious, and she will always be in your hearts.

Oh Karl, that is a beautiful shrine to Anatasia. I still hope and pray she will come home safely, but I understand that you need to move on. There will always be a special place in all our hearts for her. My thoughts and purrs are with you, Karl, and your humans.

Tyler said...

Thank you for sharing a picture of Ana's shrine. It's beautiful Oh how I wish she had walked in after the Minute of Prayers wondering what all the fuss was. That would have been beautiful.
I agree with Marilyn when she says "Love never dies." In that way Ana will always be with us, in our hearts.

Please, please Karl make sure your maid and butler eat and drink lots of water. Be very good to yourselves.

Love,
Tyler

DEBRA said...

WE are purraying for the Maid and Butler and also for you too Karl and especially for Ana...

I'm already there
Don't make a sound
I'm the beat in your heart
I'm the moonlight shining down
I'm the whisper in the wind
And I'll be there until the end
Can you feel the love that we share
Oh I'm already there

We may be a thousand miles apart
But I'll be with you wherever you are

I'm already there
Take a look around
I'm the sunshine in your hair
I'm the shadow on the ground
I'm the whisper in the wind
And I'll be there until the end
Can you feel the love that we share
Oh I'm already there
Oh I'm already
There


Purrs

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

We're not giving up hope...She'll either come home or we'll meet her at the rainbow bridge. It would be good to know, one way or the other, I'm sure. We'd love to hear her story....

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Hi, just stopping by to see if there is any word on the communicator? Or if that is why you are moving on?
No matter what, she is with us always. Look how many people shared the Minute of Prayer yesterday. I am still hoping she will show up, but I'm stubborn like that. No matter what, we will keep her memory alive.

i lost my dog of 9 years this summer and know the time you are going thru is very heartbreaking. you are in my prayers. one thing that has helped me was putting together a photo album - pulling pics from his whole life - into one album - reminded me of all the joys - best dog i've ever had. hugs and prayers from the mum at archi's antics

Gretchen said...

I was afraid to come here since Sunday because I wanted to hear good news. I am very sad. I was just getting to know Anastasia. I read what the Cat commincator said, but I'm posting here. It's a good feeling knowing she's happy where she's at. I know you will always have tears of joy and sadness for her in your heart. I wish you well in healing and hope, Karl, you will continue to post.

Hugs to you all...Gretchen

Stanley said...

Karl,

I am so sorry Anastasia has not come back. Wherever she is, I hope she is running like the wind and feeling free!
