Lionel, R.I.P.

Lionel, 2000 - 2012

I'm writing this post because so many of you were fans of Lionel. Our sweet kitty died yesterday morning. The vet said that Lionel had cardiomyopathy.  We wrapped Lionel in his polar fleece blankie and buried him in a tool chest in the wind break north of the house.

 Lionel's favorite night spot:
my pillow


I told Tuppence that she was going to have to step up and be the Big Cat now. We'll see if she is up to the responsibility. So far, she is more interested in the herb garden than in lying on my pillow...

Actually, I'm wondering how Tuppence is going to handle the loss of her constant companion. 


 September 2012

We're going to miss that sweet cat.

Sorry to hear that Lionel passed. I cried for a week when Pepper died. I am glad to hear that he did not suffer long.

Your Tuppence looks like a twin to my Abby.

Empty Nester said...

Oh Judy. I was so sad to see the title of this post. And my first thought was what will Tuppence do now without her buddy? Our pets bring us such joy and the sadness when they leave us is deep. When I was putting the slideshow together for Birdie's birthday today, a couple of the pictures show our golden retriever, Buddy. The husband and I just sat there and cried when we saw him. Thinking of you.

Terri @ A Creative Princess said...

Oh Judy, I am so, so sorry. My heart goes out to you, my friend.

XO, Linda

Amy Burzese said...
