Sad Day

Today is a sad day for Mommy and Daddy - two years ago today my big brother Basil went to the Bridge. Mommy still misses her cuddly, tuxie boy every day - and so do I.

This was one of his favorite sleeping spots - curled up in the sheets.


He was always very good with George.


And he was very tolerant of his Bean Cousin.


And he trained me to be the good ManCat that I am today.


A handsome fellow.


And playful too!

Basil must have been a great guy. He was very handsome, and he had great taste in hidey nap places. I'm sure he is happy at the Bridge, but I bet your momma sure does miss him.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

Basil was a very handsome tuxie. It sounds like he was a wonderful guy! We are sorry that your mom and dad lost him two years ago. Our mom knows what that's like - she lost her Whiskers, the one who came before in 2006, and she still gets sad when she thinks about him sometime.

Thank you for sharing Basil with us.

Basil looks a great dude. It is nice that the beans had somecat special to train them.

Try not to be too sad, remember the good times and know he will be waiting for you all.

Dear Jake,

Basil is really handsome and great I am sure. I am very sorry that he was going to the rainbow bridge. I am really sorry indeed.
That must be very sad.

Thank you for sharing his great view for us, he must be a wonderful big brother!

Purr,
Adan

He looks like he was a great brother! Lots of hugs and purrs to your mom. It's so hard to lose a furbaby.

Basil what a cute name for a very cute guy! He looks like he was Mr. Personality with loads to spare. What a great kitty. I know your Mom misses him a lot but he is always with her right in her heart and he watches over all of you kitties to keep you safe, so every time you see a sunbeam know that Basil is right there with you sending you his warmth and love.

Basil was a very handsome Tuxie mancat. He did a great job of training you, Jake. I'm sure he misses all of you, too.

He looks like he was an awesome Mancat.

Basil seems like he was a wonderful cat. It is good to remember the Cats-Who-Came-Before, because they paved the way for us. Basil will live on forever in your mom and dad's hearts.

Basil looks like he was a great Mancat and brother to you, Jake. It's good to remember the ones who came before. The happy memories help with the grief of losing them.

Basil sure looks like a wonderful mancat. You and your beans must have many happy memories.

Oh yes, Basil was a fine looking fellow. And obviously he was a great role model. After all, you how good you turned out!
