Farewell my friend....

Tonight I said goodbye to my cat Marius. After watching him deteriorate so rapidly, I knew that it was time to let him go. He was my sweet baby and I already miss him so much. But he had 16 good years. Including wandering the farm, knocking up every cat in a 5 mile radius, and surviving a coyote attack! He was the amazing Marius. Named after none other than the character from Les Miserables.
It's really strange sitting here and not hearing the tinkling of his collar and id tag moving throughout the house. I keep expecting him to walk in any moment. sigh....

I really miss him. :(

Oh Sabrina. I'm sorry.

I'll always remember your costume and his this last Halloween.

It just stinks to lose a pet friend. It really does. I'm sorry.

Oh Sabrina~ I am so so sorry. Remember to take some extra time for yourself. And a really good long cry really helps too! I will keep you in my prayers!

Marius will always have a special place in my heart. He was like a fifth Robideau cousin. I loved his big furry paws and his masculine purrs.

BIG hugs to you. I cannot imagine how hard it would be...

Love you!!!

I just can't believe it...a trip to MN just won't be the same without seeing Marius...I remember hearing all about Marius not too long after we met in NH..I thought he had a cool name. I am so so sorry...he has been your friend for so many years and I can't imagine what it must be like not having him around. Sad.

Sabrina said...
