Tama-Chan Tuesday: Farewell to a Friend

We were all so very saddened yesterday to learn that beautiful Sweet Praline had crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Unlike many of you, we had not known her long, but she was such a fabulous lady cat and we all were in awe of her. She and her Mom Paula faced her final illness with such dignity. We are honoured to have known you, Sweet Praline.

Here is a magnificent Emperor Moth that #1 photographed on Sunday. We think it makes a fitting tribute for our friend who now has her own wings:

In other news, we are all recovering from our weekend with Fernant... Actually, he was a really good boy and even us girls got on well with him. But poor Tommy was a bit exhausted after constant ear pulling and jaw chomping, and he was very happy to go back to the big field with just #1 this morning.

We have been hearing rumours that our cat run will be closed on Thursday. What do you think is going on? Apparently, two friends of #1's are coming over to "make improvements..." Hmmmm. Perhaps I should get out there once I have finished blogging.


  1. We were sad to see Praline was going to khross...

    And then did BUT we were khwite proud of her mom fur listening -

    PeeEssWoo: Rest up Tommy! He'll be bakhk!

  2. We are all so sad for Sweet Praline, but so touched by the dignity of her and Mom Paula. The moth is indeed a beautiful, fitting tribute.
    Good luck with the 'improvements' - we hope youend up with something better than our skyway....

  3. I'm so sorry about your friend's loss. Praline sure was a very beautiful kitty.

  4. Praline's passing made mommy so sad all weekend long as her mommy prepared for the journey. She leaked a lot of waters from her eyes.

  5. We will miss Praline but she is romping over at Rainbow Bridge and feeling well again. We know her mom will miss her very much.
    Improvements to your run Tama-Chan - it will be exciting to see what is being done - of course you will have to give it your approval when the work is completed and we know you will check for bad workmanship! If it is not up to your exacting standards you'll have to give the workers "The Bitey"
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  6. In spite of the sadness, it has been heartening to read all the tributes to Sweet Praline.

    Exciting to think of improvements to the run!

  7. Troubling news about the cat run. We are ever so sad about Praline.

  8. Improvements? Those might be fun...too bad you will NOT be allowed to help.

    We are sad for Mom Paula, we miss Praline very much.

  9. Thank you for your special tribute to my little diva. I'm missing her terribly today.

    Bet Tom will sleep for a good long time. He is such a love. Hope his beautiful face and flying ears are not damaged in spite of Fernant's attempt to chew them off. We are sending lots of love and cuddles Tommy's way.

    We can't wait to hear what's going on with the cat run!!

    In answer to your question...mom thinks my momma Ellie has the softest fur in the whole world...but being her daughther, I of course take after her and have the 2nd most softest fur in the world.

  20. Fitting tribute to little Sweet Praline.

    Now, we are waiting on pins and needles ..... well, lets pretend we are, OK? We wonder what is going to happen here. No hits? No slips of the fingers and a little snippet of information? Nothing?

    Meanie! Well, we'll be here to see it.

    We're gone for now .....

  21. What a beautiful tribute to Praline. We will so miss that sweet gerl and her tortitude.

  22. We did not know Praline but we had heard of her. We are saddened by her loss.

    We hope Young Fernant is 'nice' to Tommy this time around. You are so good to have him over!
