Well, today it is two months since I have gone to the Rainbow Bridge. And I am sorry that I haven't thanked everyone with a diary entry sooner, but now the Catster gift history isn't available, so my thank you's for everyone are still on hold.

The two months have gone by very fast and Mom finds the house so empty. Amber and Mom take care of each other now but Mom's eyes still leak. Every now and then, from the corner of her eye, Mom thinks she sees a flash of a fluffy kitty tail and once she even heard me meow, so she knows I am still with her. Slowly her pain will subside and then only the good and happy memories will remain, as it should be. But I will always be in her heart forever.

Love ya forever, Mom,
Apollo

 

Into The West Lyrics

Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You've come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You're only sleeping

What can you see
On the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home

And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
All souls pass

Hope fades
Into the world of night
Through shadows falling
Out of memory and time
Don't say: We have come now to the end
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again

And you'll be here in my arms
Just sleeping

What can you see
On the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home

And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
Grey ships pass
Into the West

 

An Entry From Apollo's Mom

Dearest Friends,

I just need to write to apologize for the confusion I created when I posted on Tuesday that I would have to help Apollo to the Bridge. Even though I expected the worst I was still devastated that the ultrasound showed that he has spots of cancer in his liver, pancreas and intestines. That day, he was very sick and in pain and I didn't want him to hurt, so I really thought that the time had come for us to part. But our vet said not to rush so I threw myself into caring for Apollo and didn't come to Catster for a day.

It shouldn't come as a surprise to any Catsters that the Power of the Paw really does work. Apollo's pain has subsided, he's more alert but also is able to sleep deeply (which is his normal schedule during the day), and he is starting to eat on his own. As we all know, cancer has no cure, so I know there will be no miracle "cure". But the miracle here is the Catster Power of the Paw -- the loving thoughts, the kindness, the understanding -- as we help each other through whatever life throws at us.

There is no need for you to apologize or be embarrassed if you sent Bridge rosettes or posts. The love, concern and understanding is what I see, so there is certainly no need to apologize for that.

Apollo and I may have months together, or weeks, or only days. However long it is, we will take it ... enjoy it ... and know our love for each other and all of our Catster friends.

Love ya!
Eloise and Apollo

I have been tagged by Sir Sonny Bono . . . and I am supposed to tell 5 things about myself:

1. I play with a DOG . . . . (our Collie, Amber). But she's cool . . . and doesn't drool !!!

2. Now that it's cold outside, I get to go to the barn, if I want. I'm still hoping to catch a mouse.

3. I shed lots of my fur in the Spring so my fur isn't very long during Summer.

4. I like to follow my sister, Athena, around, just to annoy her.

5. I'm ready for Christmas! I like to hang out under the tree.

I have been tagged by my friend, Sir Sonny Bono with five questions and answers:

1) What is your favorite Olympic Sport?
Equestrian Stadium Jumping -- horses are athletes, too!

2) What do you prefer Summer or Winter?
Summer!!!! The hotter the better!!! I love hanging out on the front porch to watch the birdies in the pine trees and get away from Mom and her air conditioning. I'll take the heat any day!

3)What is the quirkiest thing you do?
When Mom is lying on the couch, propped up on one elbow watching TV, I stand in front of her on the couch for her to gather me up and flip me onto my back, up against her so she is holding me to her and we can cuddle.

4) Do you have a crush on any other kitties?
Yes, my long-time crush is Leela. Our together picture and her badge is on my page. But she no longer visits Catster. :(

5) What is your favorite rosette or zealie and why?
The Star, because it lasts forever.

. . . and I'm tagging . . .

Whisper

Little Boy Blue

I've been tagged by Peanut Puff . . . . sorry I took so long to respond, but ya know how it is. Better late than never, huh? So, you know how it goes . . .

The kitty that is tagged, goes to their diary page and lists 7 facts about themselves. They then list 7 furriends and those kitties will list their 7 facts in their diaries, so that others can get to know a little about each of us. Don't forget to notify the friends you have tagged by pawmail or by sending a rosette so that they know they've been tagged.

Seven Facts:
1. When I cuddle with Mom in bed it's always to her right. (The left side is reserved for Athena).
2. My latest favorite daytime sleeping spot is in the guest bedroom on the floor between the bed and the wall.
3. I don't like fish.
4. Every morning I help Mom while she puts on her makeup. (Mom says she needs all the help she can get, hee hee). I paw all the little brushes and stuff around.
5. I like to be brushed every day and let Mom know about it if she forgets.
6. I like to hide in the doghouse when I'm outside.
7. I Love Catster!!!

*comes up to the podium with speech in paw*

My diary was chosen Catster Diary of the Day! My very first entry! This is such an honor.

I wish to thank Catster for choosing me. *purr bursts forth from his throat* I would also like to thank my sister, Athena, for being smaller than me; my dog, Amber, for playing with me; my other dog, B'Elanna (who knows why), my mom typist (her fingers fly over the keyboard much faster than my paws can); my momsmom for feeding me and keeping up my strength; the cats Marie, Cali and Daisy who tagged me, making this diary possible; all of the cats who won't drive with me in the various Late Late Show vehicles . . . and all those cats who do.

And I would just like to say . . . . uh . . . . *holds paw to head* . . . uh . . . . uh . . .

*gracefully keels over behind the podium in a faint*

 

Tagged . . . . . You're It !!!

I've been tagged by Marie, Defender of the Empire; Cali and Daisy.

The rules: Each player picks seven random facts about themselves, and writes the seven things and the rules in their own diary. Next choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Send the seven cats you chose a comment that they have been tagged and to read your diary. My seven random facts:

1. I weigh twice as much as my twin sister, Athena. (Actually, I'm just big-boned)

2. My purrson calls me "Purr Puff".

3. My favorite "plaything" is our "cracked" Collie, Amber.

4. When my purrson needs to call both my sister and me at the same time, she just calls, "Kittles!"

5. For some strange reason, when I'm at the Late Late Show, no cat wants me to drive any of the vehicles . . . . ??????

6. To me, there is nothing more sad than an empty food dish.

7. I am most proud of the fact that my family and I were chosen to be Catster Moderators. It is a privilege and honor to patrol the forums, keeping them safe and fun for all Catsters.


The cats I tagged are:

Merlin
Sasha
Milo
Ruben
Lemur
Icebox
Milton


Hope they have as much fun as I did!
Love ya guys!!!!!
