With very broken hearts we have to inform you that Emil is gone.
He was last seen Saturday, June 21 in the morning and never came home.
Unfortunately in our environment that means that he has crossed to the bridge with the help of either coyotes, bobcats, rattlers, or owls. We have very few neighbors (who all know us) and no garages to be locked in.
We know that some of you don't understand why we are not indoor cats in such a dangerous environment but we all came out of the desert and hate to be locked up. We are glad that our staff does not try to make us indoor cats, even if they would rather have us save 24/7.
The maid is back but she and the butler are heart broken. We try to comfort them as good as we can and take comfort ourselves in the fact that Emil had the best of lives, enjoying every minute of it.
