We lost Ruse today

Today, my grandchildren and I had to say goodbye to our precious Ruse. 

He had been failing for a while, but this morning I knew he couldn't wait another day to be released from his little body.

Ruse loved to be wherever I was, even if I was on the computer and paying bills!

He also loved to be under chairs — any chairs — especially chairs where I was nearby! So lovey and playful.

I will miss this precious boy forever.

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

I am so very sorry for your loss. I have always had a soft spot for your kitties because they remind me so much of Eric, Flynn and Kitty Yumbum, and also we started blogging around the same time.
You and ML saved those kittens all those years ago and gave them a wonderful life. Ruse will be greatly missed. I send you my heartfelt sympathy.

We are so sorry that Ruse was needed at the Bridge. Thank you for loving him so much and so well. Sending you love and purrs.

Such sad sad news. I love Mama Grace and her two boys as much as if I had adopted them. Deb was fostering them and of course I got to play with them. We both had no doubt they got the best forever home in the world. I know they all love you so much. It is the hardest thing to send them to the Bridge. It's something you do out of love for them. They will no longer be hurting, but your pain has just started. Love you so much, Marilyn. 💔

Yo, Ruse! You will be missed!

We believe that our Nikita, and so many others who have gone before, will be there to greet Ruse at The Bridge.

Timmy Tomcat said...

Dear friend, please don't mourn for me
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side
each night and day
and within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near.
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
as long as you keep me
alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight-
I'm the brightest star
on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach-
I'm the warm moist sand
when you're at the beach.

I'm the colorful leaves
when fall comes around
And the pure white snow
that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers
of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water
in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom
you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop
that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light
when the sun starts to shine,
and you'll see that
the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking
there's no one to love you,
you can talk to me
through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer
through the leaves on the trees,
and you'll feel my presence
in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salty tears
that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams
that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see
on a baby's face.
Just look for me, dear friend,
I'm everyplace!

It’s such a sad release. Having to say good-bye to a loved one is never easy, especially when he was like Ruse, who clearly wanted always to be where you were. Some day he will be again. Godspeed, Ruse.
