Both happy and sad...

Both happy and sad...

I´ve not been around much. And the reason is our cat Leia (yes, my boys love Star Wars) died a week ago. She got got hit by a car and died. As you see on the pic she left four kittens for me to take care of.

Now my grief has turned into joy. It´s such a bliss to be accepted by these kittens as their new caretaker. They really cling to me wanting the attention a cat mother gives. So I nurse them with a bottle, wash them with cotton pads (imitating a cat tounge) and trying to teach them to be good cats. It´s like I´m thrown back to the days when my boys where newborns.

Today we have a funeral for Leia. My boys decided we will eat roastbeef and print some copies on our printer - the things she loved most....:)

And the kittens have jedi knight names too of course: Ashooka, Eyla, Anakin (the one you see on the pic with half black, half white nose) and Yoda.


  1. Oh Suzy, I'm sorry to hear about your pusscat, very sad indeed. My heart goes out to you and your little kittens.
    Kristin :)

  2. I'm so sorry to hear that. We lost one of our cats a few months ago suddenly to cancer. It's so hard to loose a loved pet. They are truly members of the family.

    but at least you have the wonderful kittens, they are cute

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about your Leia. Her kittens are lucky to have you to take care of them.

  4. Oh Suzy, I am so sorry!

    Glad to hear that the kittens are safe and imprinted on you! :)

  5. Oh Suzy - so sorry to hear of you losing your precious kitty! We are kitty people too (okay - I am) and I feel your pain - thank goodness for those little furry bundles of joy to look after eh? xo

  6. Thank you all!
    The kittens develop so fast. All are doing very well and will become a joy for their new caretakers. I will keep two, but it´s hard to choose...

  7. Hej!

    Du har ingen studio eller så där man kan komma och kika på de vackra smyckena? Skulle gärna vilja komma i kontakt med dig för lite flera frågor angående köp, du når mig på

    Tack för hjälpen!

  8. I'm very sorry for your loss...I lost my young 3 yr old chihuahua very unexpectedly 2 months ago and I am still not dealing well...enjoy the kittens:0)

  9. I am sorry but what were you doing letting that cat go outside, esp since she was a mother, with kittens? I am sorry but there is no excuse for that negligence. I am sure it was painful to experience the loss, but imagine if you had not let her be an outdoor cat? Cats can live long, happy lives - INSIDE.

  10. I have to disagree with you Chateau de Verre. Yes, my cat would probably have lived longer indoors, but she would definitely not have been a happy cat. I´ve seen many depressed indoor cats, just lying sleeping through the day and hurting themselves in the end, chewing of their fur on their tails.
    I´m sad she died, but she died HAPPY...

    And the kittens are doing so well, all outdoor cats :)
