  1. My eyes welled up at this gorgeous photo of Honey. I am stunned you lost her at such a young age. My Heart really goes out to you, Marc-Andre. I am a cat Lover, bar none, and my hubby and I take care of 14 special needs cats, all who are attached majorly to our Hearts. I am really so sorry for you loss. (((HUGS))) Amy

    1. Awww thank you Lady. But the owner of honey is Ian! He took part in our competition. I think his cat truly deserves this prize and I’m sure he will appreciate your kind comment. 🙂

  2. Such an amazingly beautiful cat! My deepest sympathy for your loss, Ian. She awaits you at the Rainbow Bridge. Her life, here, was cut short, but her love and soul are everlasting.

    Thank you, Marc. I love and look forward to all your posts.

  3. Many thanks for all your kind words.

    Honey was indeed a special girl. Being a Maine Coon, she was larger than life, and loved living at a thousand miles an hour! We live in a rural setting, and she, and her brother Dexter had full access to the fields and woodland. And spent most of the summertime outdoors chasing butterflies and mice (never bothered with birds thankfully) and most of the winters curled up with us.

    She started loosing weight late last year when she was just six years old, and after several trips to the vets, she was operated on for exploritory surgery, where a large tumour was found. We were given the option of removing as much of it as they could and extending her life for a few more moths with regular vet visits and lots of pain meds, or let her go… So we had to make the heartbreaking decision to let her sleep on without waking her up ;-( It hurts us so much not being there for her, and not being able to say goodbye. But feel it was best for her not to suffer any more. Her wonderful winning picture was taken on one of her butterfly hunting missions. Shes sat on the top of the wooden fence in the pic and has her eyes on a particularly tasty Cabbage White. Her wonderful Mural will go on our daughters beroom wall, where she will continue to keep watch over us.

    Anyone who keeps pets must one day say goodbye, and having kept cats for over 25 years, we;ve said goodbye to seeveral. But it never gets any easier… But time heals, and after a while you tend to smile and laugh about their antics, rather than feel sad. This poem always helps us feel better about the whole experience though:

    There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm
    and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health
    and vigour; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again,
    just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

    The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and
    looks into the distance. Her bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers.
    Suddenly she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs
    carrying her faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your
    special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.

    The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head,
    and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your
    life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together

    Ian, Tracy, Natasha & Jessica
