Heartbreaking News

My precious and much-loved kitty Daddy, Oscar the Puppy Cat, has gone to the Bridge. Words can't express my sadness, though I know he's a bright angel there. But I, with his loving family and friends, will miss him so terribly here, so stunned at his sudden loss, with our aching hearts.

I can't see to post much because I'm crying too many tears. Here's where I found out -- there are more details here: Cat Blogosphere

...and here: Emma's blog.

And please go to his blog and give your love and purrs to his Mombean.

Daddy Oscar is with Sweet Suzanne now. I am sure they are snuggling together right now and looking down at all of us who are grieving, shining down on us the light of their love.

It is so sad when precious kitty friends must say goodbye.

Thank you, Skeezix, for designing those beautiful graphics. You are a wonderful friend to all of us.

And please, everyone go to Purrchance to Dream and leave messages of love and condolence -- yet another dear kitty, Ubee, has gone to the Bridge.

That is so so so sad,
I was shocked for a long long time.

Oah dear~!

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

Darling sister...such beautiful comforting words to me on this sad day. Have you not slept all night...I have not.
Toni called me when I got home from Church this evening before I even knew about Oscar. You are both so precious to try to tell me this bad news so gently...
I realize that each trial brings a renewal of strength to live all of lifes little moments to the fullest. Each day is such a gift wrapped up in 24 equal tiny time will we spend them
Good night for now...know how much I need you
your Peach

I was so sad and shocked to read about Oscar's passing. I was just thinking yesterday afternoon that it was time to go and check on his blog to see if there was anything new, then tonight I find out that he is gone. I know that he is with Suzanne and I picture him comforting other kitties who may be missing their humans and looking down on all us with love.

Yoggie said...

Oh, I am very sad. Although I don't know him it's always a great loss to lose someone from the big cat family. All we cats stay together in the hours of grief and great pain.

PS: Jingle Bells wanted to inform you that there are quite a few poetry books (all different languages) in the study. Our female human writes poetry, too - but only in German and Norwegian. She says it's hard for her to find the right spirit in English.

It's been a sad week for our blogging pals, but I know our friends are in a happier place. FAZ

Jeter and Mickey said...

I must have rushed over to Oscar's blogpage when I read the sad news here ... I thought I had left a comment for you.
It is so sad to hear that a friend has left us. I remember when we learned that Keiser, our beloved Catster friend, had gone to Rainbow Bridge. It broke our hearts.
How lucky we all are to have had Oscar and Anastasia in our kittycat lives. They made us smile ... they made us laugh out loud!

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

Oh Marilyn we are so very sorry about Oscar. We know you will miss him terribly and our eyes are leaking for you. Take comfort in the fact that he loved you very much and he is now with sweet Suzanne.

Purrs and hugs,

DEBRA said...


We share your grief over the loss of was so sudden and unexpected and all I can think of is that he is now with Suzanne sharing some angel wings.


Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

We are so so sad about both of them and now Ubee too. It just doesn't seem fair to loose so many at once.

I am very sad to learn this news too. It is very hard to say goodbye to our precious friends.

so much sadness. It breaks my heart. x

Henry Helton said...

I just heard about Ubee. Three kitties in one week is just too much.

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

OH MY GOSH NO! Ubee just came to us!!! He never even had a start!
Poor little baby...poor Morgan!
Sadness needs to be sweeped away like the dross of the day!!!

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

Oh in my minds heart I see Suzanne and Oscar cuddling Ubee as he enters the gate......she licks him clean and he lays his tail over his little back.....all will be well...
