With heavy hearts we have to tell you that we lost our sweet Luna June 17. We did not want to spoil the Dare, so we did not post about it at the time. A neighbor had seen a coyote chasing another neighbor's cat (he survived) that day in the morning (he told us the next day) and in the afternoon Luna did not show up and hasn't been seen since...
Notty and Tintin took it pretty hard but are getting better now.
Here are the very last pictures of Luna, and the last one demonstrates why we called this post "cycle of life". As predators we cats are part of a cycle of life which mostly is a cruel one.
Luna was a vibrant, effervescent bundle of energy and we miss her lively personality a lot!
And on June 21 Dame Edna and Coco Chanel joined us. They were found abandoned, malnutritioned and hungry under a car and needed a home.... The staff thought it might help Notty and Tintin and that seems to be the case. Both have by now started to play with the kittens, and the kittens have almost doubled in weight since they came! These pictures are about 2 weeks old, we will try and get more recent ones soon.
June 21, Edna and Coco's "Gotcha Day" also was the day when last year our sweet Emil left us to go to the bridge. We miss him - his little voice and his big paws, his mischievous spirit and his compassionate heart. Edna reminds us of him - just as bow legged, hahahahahahaha!
Emil's friends gave him a wonderful wake, and we want to post this picture today, done by Opus and Roscoe - who sadly enough also left for the bridge only three month after Emil - as a toast to Emil's glorious life, a small part of which you can see here!
You are in our hearts forever and we will always love you Emil!
