Farewell to a Friend

Tama-Chan: Today is usually my day to post, and I shall do a little one further down, but we wanted to dedicate this post to a family friend who was helped to the Bridge last night.

KARMA, a beautiful Meezer boy, was adopted by Ms. L in Hong Kong, with his brother Tashi, at the age of 7 in 1999. The family they had been living with since kittenhood was returning elsewhere and didn't want to be bothered with shipping them. Lucky for them as they entered a life of utter indulgence and devotion! After a number of years in Hong Kong, Ms. L moved to France in 2004 and the boys came too, along with their Burmese sister, Coco. Ms L says "Tashi got sick about a year ago and has been relatively stable for about 4 months. Karma started getting sick with renal failure in January and has declined quickly.  He is the sweetest cat I've ever had and loves to be held like a baby on one's shoulder." #1 spent time with Karma on a number of occasions and can confirm both his handsomeness and sweetness. She made sure to ask Sen-Chan to wait for him at the Bridge last night to show him the ropes and be his friend.

Here is Karma in all his Meezer glory:

Chillin' (!) on the radiator...

And on the right, with his brother Tashi:

Goodbye, Sweet KARMA.

Today being Toesday, I do have a picture of my little toesies for you:

And a fun one from the back room...

Yes, "Sir" marks the return of pink pawpads to the household!

What's that? You actually need to see their faces?!

  7. We're very sorry to learn of Karma's passing. However, now he will have all the nips and treats his heart can desire. Our thoughts go out to his family.

    As for the toesies, it's tempting to reach out and tickle those pads!

  11. I'm so sorry about the loss of your handsome friend Karma. He reminds my Mommie of her Cat-Who-Came-Before named Cricket, who was a chocolate point Siamese.

  12. My thoughts are with Karma's family. Blessing to you and I know Sen-chan and Karma are together. I will be sure to ask Q, who crossed the bridge in February tol bring his buddy, Sylvester, over to play with Sen-chan and Karma too!

    And toes of every color...how sweet!

  24. We are very sorry to hear about Karma. Our mom is too, she has a special place in her heart for the Siamese because her parents were owned by one when she first came into the world.

    The toes are lovely. We think they are adorable when they are all stretched out.

  25. Hi, it's us again. About your question on our bloggy: A while ago the Zoolatry annouced the Wordy Wednesday Challenge. You were supposed to pick up to three words to describe yourself and let her do her magic with it. That's why this Wednesday is a bit on the wordy side today...
