Rufus on Day 1

First trip home!

Now THAT'S a lap!

Now THAT’S a lap!

You have to pat me before you pass!

You have to pat me before you pass!


God bless you, Rufus!

      Thank you. A good friend he was! I still him frequently on the peripheral vision. I’m hoping to get a new Persian this summer. I’m looking forward to the companionship, and to find out what sort of personality he’ll have. 🙂

    I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. The furry members of our families are greatly missed.

    Like life boats in time, memories remain . . . I am so very sorry.

    I’m so sorry. He was gorgeous. Our pets simply do not live long enough. 😦

    My cat, FELIX and I can just imagine the loss. We sometimes bond more strongly with certain pets, don’t we?

      Yes. Rufus was my third cat, but I surely did bond more with him. Give Felix (I like that name) an extra kiss for me. 🙂

        FELIX is my first indoor cat-perhaps that is why he is so affectionate. My summers are passed on PEI with many bald headed Eagles hunting in the nearby field and water. I still haven’t got FELIX heavy enough to resist the talons! ( but he is working on it…up to 17 lbs) Thanks for your blogs. I enjoy reading them. Noëlla

          Thanks Noëlla. That sounds fascinating in PEI and its Eagles! 🙂

    Always tough to lose a loyal companion. They’re worth it, though.

      You can say the again! Last week I visited a battery who breeds Persians, and asked to be on the waiting list. It won’t replace Rufus, but it might fill the hole he left behind.
