Au revoir cher ami! A farewell salute to Petya…

“If having a soul means being able to feel love, and loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are a lot better off than a lot of humans.”  – James Herriot

Our very dear friend, Petya, has crossed the Rainbow Bridge all too suddenly. While his, well-trained humans were away, one out of France, the other at work, Petya, curled up in a room and went to sleep. Petya was adopted from a local refuge only last January. He was 4.5 years old and arrived with his twin brother. Up until the last, he was eating, playing and running about. He had mastered the great art of sliding across tile floors and stopping just in time to avoid a collision.

The only change a bit more cantankerous than usual, one of his limitless charms. Among his great skills, he was a fearsome hunter, often bringing home gifts, cuddling-grand champion, Ace editor and critic on a laptop, and he loved to play. He will be sorely missed by his humans, Natalje and Cornelis, and his fabulous feline siblings, Piotr, Mishka, James, Boris, and Sophie not to mention numerous friends, two and four-legged.  The small French village where he lived so happily for nearly nine months will miss him.

Thank you, Petya, for bringing your magic into our lives we do wish you had been able to stay among us much longer. Good Night Sweet Prince!


Colette, Simone and the human, Léa

    A time for grief, a time to mourn: it feels intolerable for so many long moments, but healing comes. “And joy comes in the morning.”

    Condolences from Canada. Petya was so handsome & definitely a Prince. I am so sorry he has gone to Pure Land. May he meet up with my Purrince Siddhartha Henry & become friends. I can imagine the grief…I lost P SH after only 3 1/2 yrs. It is so difficult to deal with a 4legged leaving b4 their time.
    gentle {{{hugs}}} & *purrsss* of comfort, Sherri-Ellen & BellaDharma
