Good bye sweet girl...until we meet again.

It's 4:00am and I'm wide awake with only 2 1/2 hours of sleep. Still on Ireland time.

Sad news...

The minute I walked in the door last night at 6:30pm I called the vet to see how the girls were. They were doing fine but Cerise had developed a constipation problem over the weekend and was being treated for it. Then 1 1/2 hours later, after hours, the vet called saying I should come right away to see Cerise and possibly take her home as she'd taken a turn for the worse that afternoon. Well, when I got there I could tell it was "time" and I had to put her down. They were so afraid she wouldn't make it through the night. I was just destroyed! My little blue-eyed baby girl had hung on just long enough for me to get home to say our goodbyes. I brought Lilly home with me then rather than going back today to get her. Poor thing. She's walking around crying and I swear she's looking for Cerise too. The whole trip I was preparing myself for this just in case. In fact when I dropped them off the day before we left I said my goodbyes to her "just in case". My little girl gave me 17+ years of much love and happiness. I know Binky was there to greet her at thebridge and now they are both together again romping around in the green fields like when they were kittens.



  1. Oh, I'm so sorry for you Peggy, this is such sad news... Of course it's good that she's with Binky Baby now, but it's so sad for you. (Crying now...)

    love and hugs,

  2. I'm so very sorry Peggy. I've never seen a loss so widely mourned. Websites all over the internet are talking about Cerise. You and Cerise have had a tremendous influence on all of us. One thing I try to remember when I love someone I love so much, is that none of us is likely to live past 120, so the most I'll have to wait is 60 or 70 years to see my lost furkids again, and at my age, that time will really fly by. John

  3. Hugs and prayers to you and to Lilly. Love, Bootsie Cutesie and Julia

  4. Well, it's almost Binky Baby's birthday. She would be sweet 16 Saturday, I think. I know Binky Baby and Cerise are up there celebrating together, and I will be down here. John
