eight photos of our dear, much loved by all (especially Winnie & Sam) black velvet chiclet - Bleet

What greater gift than the love of a cat.
Charles Dickens

We said goodbye to our Bleet (Bleetito, BleetNess, Ness, NessieNess), our Black Velvet Chiclet yesterday - it was sudden, serious and there was no question or doubt that it was time. He will be dearly missed by all, especially by Sam. Bleet remember was reared by Retrievers and I've always been convinced that he saw himself as a dog - not a cat. He had a great summer lounging in his pillow topped wicker chair on the front porch + lazing about with Itty Bitty Betty on & in the catnip bed I planted in my haphazard wee garden.

Love you NessieNess xoxo

  7. thank you all so much !!

    We knew Bleet's time was coming, I think after you've dealt with this a few times you realize that the the most important thing is that you minimize your pet's suffering. I know in this case we did that, I'm getting so much better at that part - we acted swiftly and we knew it was coming & we were prepared - but it's still so hard to say goodbye to a family member. 15 & 1/2 years is a lovely long life for a cat or dog and we are both so thrilled that he had such a lovely summer, between the pillow topped wicker chair daily lounging and the very frequent visits to that catnip patch with IBB * I know he had a perfect life and that he knew he was very adored "always" by many.

  9. Dear Susan and Gang, so sorry to hear about Ness. He had a lovely, long and full life. You were compassionate and allowed him dignity and minimal suffering. Black kitties are so special. Night night dear Bleet. All the best to you and the gang - Kitty USA

  10. So sorry about Bleet. It's always sad and so hard to lose a beloved pet. I think they know when it's time. Somehow they let you know. No matter who's pet it is I always cry when someone loses one because I have been there so many times and I know how it feels. All I know is I am going to be one pissed off human being if there is no Rainbow Bridge and my beloved pets aren't there to greet me when I go!! How I have missed them all so much!! xo
