On Tuesday one of our oldest and dearest cat blogging friends Fat Eric, had to be helped to the bridge. Eric was a senior kitty and hadn't been feeling well or eating.
We're so so sad that Eric had to go to the bridge. He will be greatly missed.
Sadly yesterday the Cat Blogosphere lost another member, Luxor the White Cat. We didn't know Luxor and we're very sad that now we will never be able to get to know him.
Mum wrote this poem a while back about time and loss and she thinks it fits in with how man y of us are feeling right now after such sad news.
Time is a crying creature, crouching poised to fight
Sliding through the shadows and dancing in the light
Time is here to hunt us, trapped in her claws so tight
Time is a slender creature, stretching in a gentle sway
Stalking through the darkness and pacing out her prey
Suddenly silently, snatching precious ones away
Time is a cordial creature, kindly soothing tears
Warming up the memories and purring in your ears
Gliding through the twilight, chasing all your fears
Time is an aging creature, slowing in her gait
Greying at the corners and bidding us to wait
Reminding us so sweetly, we can't escape our fate
