Sad Days

"When sorrows come, they come not single spies,
but in battalions".
- Hamlet Quote Act IV, Scene V

It has been a sad weekend around the blogosphere. Our friends are hurting, and we hurt for them. We are purring for Mom Laura, Lilly Lu, Mu Shue and Iris...

UPDATE! They are safe - make sure to visit the Cat Blogosphere for information on how to write a letter of thanks to the brave officers that rescued them!

And of course we are purring for Miral's family...


Remember me when I am gone away,
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go, yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.
- Christina Rossetti

Purrs to one and all,
Pearl, Bert and Jake

A real hard week for all of us in the blogging world of kitties and doggies. My heart is heavy for Miral and her family, we will all miss her. The fire at Laura's was terrible and those poor kitties must have been so afraid. The good news is that they have all been found safe and are with Laura now. So that is one great piece of good news!

It's been a rough weekend but we are are happy that Lilly Lu, Mu Shue and little Iris are safely in the arms of Mom Laura.

It is a lovely tribute to sweet Miral. We will all remember her.

On a happier note, do come to Karl's party. Miral's family will be there and there will be a minute silence in her remembrance
