Christmas Without Our Golden Boy

After a relatively short illness, our beautiful Grand Manitou of the Townships of the East has left us. We are heart-broken.

My office - now.
Sad - alone.

  1. Hello Anya, having had cats all my life, (I am 60), I know your pain! Your photos are beautiful, and what a gorgeous cat! Great memories here. I am so sorry for your loss.

    Hi Anya. He was a gorgeous cat. You must miss him.

    We lost 3 of our old cats this summer and fall, Tonka, Moey and Tut. All of them were 18 years old and had various ailments. So sad to say goodbye.

    At Christmas, we looked out the porch window and there was a new cat. He had apparently been deserted by his owners at the roadside. Of course, he is living here now. We named him Noel and took him to the vet to have his cough treated. He has settled right in.

  4. Thank you everyone. Noel, such an appropriate name, a lucky kitty to have found you!

  5. And sympathies on losing your three.
