Goodnight, you cats…


georgia 1989-2010

Kitty Georgia O’Keefe is gone. I’m too sad to say much. Later, maybe later.

Until then, I suggest that you go here and read this. I always think of it when I remember my own Cats Gone Before.

Goodbye, little warrior…

    I’m so very sorry. I wish I could say it better.

  • Brian Bambrough Says:

    I’m so sorry Rosy. I know how much you love and care for your kitties. I know what a big hole Georgia’s loss will leave in your life.

    You gave Georgia a long and happy life. When the pain of the loss wears away, you will be able to look back at many fond memories.

      Thanks, Bri.

      You’re right, and I certainly saw this day coming. It hurts, but it was worth it.

      She passed away outside, under the sky, in the sweet green grass.

    I’d forgotten about Abbie the cat. That post is so heartbreaking and funny at the same time.

    Georgia will be missed. I found myself talking to a plastic container of cat litter this morning — out of the corner of my eye it looked like a white sitting kitty. I had started expounding on my hypothesis about the Fermi paradox when I realized my mistake.

      Sabine —

      yeah, it’s always out of the corner of one’s eye that one keeps seeing the Cats Gone Before.

      As for the Fermi Paradox: I already know Georgia’s standing on the question — They’re not here because cats got here first.

    And cats are plenty alien enough for anyone!

  • Elizabeth B Says:

    I’m so, so sorry. It hurts to lose a pet. She’s beautiful.

    • Rosemary Says:

      Elizabeth —

      Thank you. She was very beautiful — and also a crazy gal!

      Oh, it’s the pretty ones who can get away with hell, isn’t it?

  • Elizabeth B Says:

    It is. Of course, to their owner/companions, they’re all pretty, for the most part… we let them get away with all kinds of shenanigans because they bring so much to our lives.

  • Elizabeth B Says:

    (Er, oh dear… That’s not the royal We, I promise!)

    Sad news, very sorry to hear it. We have an eleven year old girl (Meow by name), whom has been in the family since being bottle (eyedropper, actually) fed as an orphan. She’s starting to slow down, and when I hear of someone else losing a kitty, I feel her mortality. The first thing I distinctly remember when I first visited your website is the photo of your cat being cute on the “Stories” page. Glad to have known her, sorta… As for you, just remember that you were lucky enough to be chosen to be owned by a cat for a time…
