Happy Birthday Emil

You didn't quiet make it to your first birthday Emil, which would have been today, but we will celebrate your life, even if it was short, and always love you.


Thank you Ruis for making this lovely picture of Emil at the bridge.

P.S. we are in the process of visiting everybody who came by but it will take a few days to reach all of you. So bear with us - if we haven't been by your blog yet, we will be shortly!

We'd also like to send our love and hugs! And to spell the word "condolences" right, since we spelled it "condolenced" in the last response. Happy Birthday to Emil over on the Bridge.

P.S. Glad our last comments were of help.

wildcatsthree said...

I'm so sorry to hear about Emil. He was such a young boy and now gone, just like my Fritzy. They are now running and playing and chasing all things furry. You have my sympathies on your loss - it's never easy but especially difficult when they're so young.

What a beautiful photo Ruis made for you and what a nice tribute to Emil. We know he enjoyed every moment he had here with us. We don't think there is anything he didn't do. We miss him, as I know all of you do. My thoughts are with you as you are going through this hard time. We just wish there was something that we could do to easy your pain.
Love to all of you.

Cat Naps in Italy said...

Sending big puurs over the rainbow bridge to Emil on his birthday. There is no doubt in our minds, that he spent the day dancing with Anastasia and taking photos of our friends over the rainbow (even if they didn't want their photos taken, wink).

We miss you Emil, but we know that Anastasia and Miral are taking good care of you.

With love,
Opus and Rosoce

It's so dreadfully sad, it really is. I love that picture, it's beautiful.

caspersmom said...

We were so sad to hear about Emil. We have the same kind of country but we started off as inside cats except for Patches she spent half of her life on the outside. You couldn't get her to stay outside now. I think she likes the inside comfort to much now. All the outside cats around here started disappearing and Mom had to put one down because he couldn't hold his own anymore and got pretty beat up and blinded. He was around here for a long time. That was before my time. I think I told you this before??? So sorry Emil didn't get to celebrate his birthday. Purrs and Prayers to the family.

Thunder! Oh my cat, that is wonderful. From now on, when I hear thunder, I will think of Emil sounding a mighty burp from the Bridge! And you know what, I won't be afraid of thunder anymore, thinking of my friend Emil.

Love and cuddles from Dorydoo.

What a great tribute. He didn't make it to his first birthday? How sad. But Mama wanted me (Hershey) to tell you that my older sister Bosco is waiting to meet Emil and will take good care of him - just like Angel Lacylulu is.

Hope you can stop by again since we are having the BBQ until Sunday. Mama says that Kaci and I can have another BBQ next weekend. What fun!

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Karl - Redcoats are the British soldiers from back when America was fighting for independence. They were called Redcoats because their uniform had a red coat. :)
