Can someone tell me what happened to my beautiful, green eyed, handsome wonderful friend Merlin? We just came on tonight and saw that he passed away and went to the bridge but I don't know why!!! I'm so very upset and all of our eyes are leaking.
Merlin I love you! I never got to tell you how much fun you are. How gorgeous your eyes are and that they mesmerize me. How much I love it when you flirt with me and tease me.
OMC, I can't believe it. There's no diary entry about it and I don't see anything anywhere in the forums or in the diaries. *sniff* Merlin, you'll make the most handsome angel ever. We love you and your family. We're here if your meowmy needs us.
I gotta go get a hanky, I'm just to sad. Please somebody tell me what happened to my friend?
We don't know what happened to our dear friend Merlin, but we have been very sad since we heard that he became an angel. I'm sure his Mom is feeling very sad, too, and maybe she is too upset to post anything in his diary. All we can do is send Merlin's family our love and support. It always hurts to lose a dear friend.
Oh Tully! We're so very sorry for his mom and family. I'm sure you're right, we're just in shock and have no idea at all what happened. We love him so much and this is just devastating! Thank you for at least sharing your pain of losing him too with me. We can at least comfort each other. I sent his mom a pawmail and told her we were here if she needs us and that we love them!
BTW! Finney told me about your very sweet comment about me in the dreamgirls group. That made me so happy and smiling ear to ear!
We just feel so devastated for them too, he was such an intense kitty.
We went to see what was going on here, and bam, just like you said, there it was.
We sent him a star, because he really was one, and now the heavens are brighter with him there, though we and fur sure his furmily miss him so furry much.
Surely all the angels there are greeting him and helping him learn to use what must be the most wonderfur wings.
Oh Bey, another furry furend gone to the RB :(
Oh Pipo! I just can't believe it. I look at his beautiful green eyes and I miss them already. It's bad enough that so many of our friends here are going to the RB but when something like this happens, it really can hit hard! Purrs of love and comfort to you also Pipo.
We were very shocked as well, we didn't know if Merlin had been ill or if this happened very suddenly. We just love Merlin's entire family and feel very sad for them.
You are definitely a dreamgirl, Lacey, beautiful on the inside and out. I hope Gumpy doesn't think I'm making the moves on his girl, MOL.
Meowmy said she thinks it happened a few days ago, because the stars, and other gifts start to discuss the 'event' earlier than today. Purrhaps it was furry unexpected and she just cannot properly put it to paper just yet. How hard it must be for all of them.
MOL, I don't even know if Gumpy and I are still an item. He's been very busy this year and taking care of himself, which is what I want for him. But I don't really see him much. Hmmmmm! I am lonely, I have to admit.
I don't know if Merlin was sick either. I have never seen or heard him talk about it. Sigh. My broken heart. They are a wonderful and fun family. Finney is always flirting with Keisha, MOL.
Keisha flirts with us, too, MOL!
Speaking of which we haven't heard a lot from her nor Sylvester either...esp strange during the 'love season'.
It must be because of whatever went on with Merlin. It still had to be kind of sudden. We never had a hint of anything health wise going on with him.
MOL, well you know us Catster girlies! We love our Catster men! You're all so darned handsome, how can we help it?
We also had been missing Sylvester and Keisha, we haven't seen them around for awhile so maybe Merlin had been ill. Keisha is another dreamgirl, very beautiful and very sweet, and yes, she is a flirt!
I hope his family had a lot of support, whatever happened. Keisha is very gorgeous! She didn't think so for awhile but she's nuts! I'd love to look like that!
Mom will try to write a diary entry in the next couple of days. It's very difficult to write about. I want to thank everyone for being so kind and supportive, it really helps to know there are so many dear friends who care.
Oh Keisha and mommy! We can't tell you how sorry we are. It's okay sweetie, you tell your mommy to do it whenever she's ready. Just know that we're all here and we love you all so very much. We're sending you huge hugs and whisker kisses!
Big hugs to you, and your furmily, Keisha. Tell your Mom to take whatevfur time she needs, and we are all here, to help you through evfurrything as best we can, starting with our big purrs.
Aww, that is so sad. Sending his family purrs.
We love you Keisha and Family. We're all here for you if you need us.
Keisha and Family...We are sorry to hear about Merlin...Please know that you are being thought of and thoughts of healing are being sent your way....take one day at a day....- our Natasha left us in December so she will be there for Merlin...
I lived as an outdoor cat for awhile. I'm indoors only now, thank goodness.
Any cat that lives outdoors....sadly...has a shorter life, unless the cat is in a cat enclosure such as a kitty sunroom or a sunroom proper.
This sort of story always makes me feel badly. I also, I admit, feel a touch of ....well, I won't bring up whats already an obvious.
Many years ago, we were made objects of worship. We were taken from 'nature' and with our consent,I beleive, watched over humans, and all.
We simply don't have the ability to fight off a gang of dogs, or other larger predators. Most of us simply aren't large enough, or strong enough, and weren't created to be able to fend off the things that would harm us.
I salute Merlin with POTP. I believe that of course, he bounded out and away, leaping up toward the star, and rounded the milky way, only to stop and look back over his shoulder and whisper, with a tiny meow 'this isn't farewell' to those who loved him. For love doesn't bring regret, love doesn't bring what ifs, it always brings peace.
Hail Merlin, Magick one! I salute you and wish you speed along your magickal journey.
Perhaps, Strong One, you will shower down your blessings on those who live outside, and bring them strength to be able to survive....
With love and light,
Ruffy as usual this is so very, very beautiful. I think you should tell his mom these things, it would really help her. They are a very loving and wonderful family and Merlin was a good friend to us. I was so mesmerized in his magical green eyes.
Ruffy, you know. You should write a book about inspirational feline sayings.
Yeah, Lacey - it kind of shook us, too, seeing the diary entry about Merlin. We hadn't known him long, but his story was rather like Maya's, except he got to enjoy a much longer life with his humans. He was a beautiful cat person and will be missed.
Oh I'm sorry to hear that about Maya Samhain. I'll have to go and read her page.
