Where The Cats P divide

A Note from Kaze:

We know we NEVER blog anymore but the Lap Lady was just thinking about all of the joy blogging brought her (it was the happiest period of her life thus far) and she's doing A LOT of reflecting these days. 

You see, a few months ago the Lap Lady and Tall Man went away for a while.  Then they came home, and the Lap Lady left.  And she didn't come home.  I missed her and did not understand at all what was going on.  The Tall Man was angry and sad and didn't pay us much attention.  Then the Lap Lady came back, put me and Latte in a carrier, and also Rufus in a carrier too, but not Chase.  Then we got her car and she drove us far far away from home and we never went back.  We arrived at this other place and we got out of our carriers and settled into our temporary home. We are staying in a big sunroom with windows on all 4 walls, tons of hidey spots, and beds, and toys, and furniture, and other good stuff.  But the Lap Lady said we're never going home again and neither is she.

In this new place we still never see the Lap Lady because she works and is in her last year of law school.  She says she knows this sucks for all of us (she doesn't  have to be so close to Rufus all day long!!) but it will get better.  She says she had to do it, she needed to be happy, and things just had to end.  I haven't seen the Tall Man, or Chase, or Auntie E, or Gamma, or anyone in so long.  The Lap Lady says Gamma won't be with us much longer as she has lung cancer and is too weak to come visit us, but she misses us.

Life is askeery. 

And even askeerier is that this weekend, Rufus is going to fly on an AIRPLANE!!!  He is going to leave us and go live with Grampa in Maine.  Grampa will love and take really good care of him but the Lap Lady leaks a lot of water from her eyes and says she will miss him so much.  And that she is so sorry to have done this to us.  Latte & I just love the Lap Lady and want to be with her though....and this new house, when we wander around when peoples are home.....it is so much fun!!!!!  Lots of places to run around and play. 

So friends, I guess you could say this is the official end to the Cats P.  We're spreading to the wind (all very well cared for) but no longer together.  All good things must come to an end they say...

Love and Purrs,
Kaze

P.S. On January 30 Snap crossed over to the rainbow  bridge.  We are having a really sad year.

We are so sorry you are all going through so much sadness, including the loss of Snap, and have become divided. We know this is very hard for all of you. We are sending lots of purrs and pawhugs, plus some hugs from Jan, for your Lap Lady and all of you.

Drat, we are having an impossible time trying to get past the evil and unreadable word verification!

Life is sometimes askeery. But it sounds like the Lap Lady is doing everything she can to make sure that all of you -- and she too -- are OK. Doing the right thing is sometimes really hard, but Lap Lady is brave and you will have new adventures together.

All the best to you, and purrs, headbutts, and hugs to take with you on the road to your new adventures.

Eric and Flynn said...

We are very sorry for all your sadness and wish all of you the best for your future. Even though you have not blogged for some time, we will miss you as one of our first friends. We think we started around the same time (July 2006), Good luck to you all and we hope your Lap Lady finds happiness.

We are glad to hear that you all are well, but sad that you are no longer together. We wish you all the best...we send all of you and the Lap Lady purrs and headbutts.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

We are glad that you are well but sorry everything is in such an upheaval. Things like that happen as your humans pursue dreams that make them more of themselves. We miss you but know that law school is hard. However, it really really does mean you'll get a fair amount of cat treats when she's done.

Meg & Quill said...

Things work out for the best, and you'll look back on the skerry times from a different perspective.

Hugs to you and the Lap Lady.

Dearest Friends, we have missed you so much and are so sorry that things have been really tough for all of you. Change is really scary and goodbyes always sad. We think of you often and are glad you like your new home. We're sure the Lap Lady will continue to love you with all her heart. Maybe she can post pics of you occasionally on FB so we have some news of you?

You will always be in our hearts. You were among our first blogging friends and will always be among our dearest.

Purrs,

Oh noes, we are so very sad for you. We know that changes often happen but we are so very sorry you are being separated from some of your siblings.

We miss you and hope that your Lady stays on Facebook.

NTM and The Purries said...

Blogging regularly seems to have taken a back seat to life in the facebook age. I understand and empathize completely.
We wish all of your family the very best.
With love from all of us at Purrchance To Dream.

Marilynn said...

Ohhhhhh =(
We are SO sorry to read all this. How mixed up all your feelings must be.

Just remember all of us ... and if your laplady ever feels like blogging again, she should do it ... she could eventually change her mind, yes? Even if it's once a month or so??

Derby, Ducky said...

Oh noes. We are sorry the Lap Lady is sad and moved out. Maybe she will be happy again soon. It must be skeery to move and not see Chase, Rufus and all.

We send lots of purrs to all of you that things get better. Mum sends hugs and snorgles.

Love you guys.

Maggie May said...

Tara said...

I'm so sorry to hear this! I miss all of you so much, Latte especially. We haven't posted much either lately. But we are OK. Give Lap Lady lots of love, she needs it!

Tara said...

PS: Mom remembers that it was Latte that got us into blogging. We also have very fond memories of those times. Mom eyes are leaking now...

Camie's Kitties said...

We are really sorry to hear about everything. We are purring that your lap lady's heart mends soon. It's a lot of stress that she's under, and we know you are doing all you can to help her take care of herself.

Purrs,

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

When your lives come to a fork in the road, it is always hard to decide which one to take. You have made a wonderful time on the blog for yourselves and we have wandered down the road together for many years...you will always be in our thoughts...remember I have a LATTE coffee mug I once offered to send you...so I smile and think about you each time I have a cuppa. Best of all the world has to offer you and remember us sometime fondly...

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Sad~ but sometimes things have to get harder to get better. I'm sure the right decisions have been made and ultimately happiness will follow. Sending blessings to all.

Harry Spotter said...

I saw on the Fb that you were closing your blog, we wanted to stop by to wish you all well and that our thoughts and prayers are with you. Good Luck and best wishes to you all.

Cat said...

I also saw on FB that you are closing your blog and although we have never met I came by to wish you well.

Sometimes things happens and we think it is the end of the world but really it is the beginning of something wonderful :-)

Nancy said...

Little Nicky and I are very sad for you all, but hope that everything works out. Latte, Kaze, and Chase all had their own blogs back when I started blogging with Jake and Bathsheba. Those were happy times, and so many of our old friends are no longer with us. Sending purrs and love.

Nancy

P.S. This word verification is way too challenging for me. This is my fifth try.
