Good-Bye Eric Buddy

When mum comes home, she switches on her computer, checks the news, and checks the blog.  The first thing she noted was that one of our sweet buddies Eric, well he had to go to the bridge this morning after a short illness. We know that his mum and dad, and brother Flynn will be heartbroken.  Mum shed a few tears.  Eric and Flynns blog has bought us so much joy over the years.

Our house smells nice, a roasty chicken and potatoes will be mums dinner tonight, perfect for a rainy autumn evening.  We have a fair bit of rain, good for our garden, but not enough for the kiwi farmers.  It will be a quiet evening again for us, thinking of our friends and how empty their house must feel.

Mom just came home from work, and know this news. We was shocked. We didn't expect at all. In the morning, we saw his post and he was doing all right. We hardly believe he has gone. Me and Mom really love him.

Eric's crossing was crushing for us. We cannot imagine what Jackie and Ivor must be feeling. Our prayers are with them. And poor, sweet Flynn; he'll miss his brother so. A sad time for us all.

That is sad news about the loss of a dear kitty. It must be a comfort to know that he was a much loved fellow and has touched many hearts. Mum said she enjoys reading kitties' blogs because knowing there are so many loved kitties is a nice way to end the day. Meow, Jessica the cat
