Farewell My Little Friend

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I found my little grey tabby cat dead in the drain today. It was heartbreaking to see him like that.

When he and his sisters were just little stray kittens outside my house, they would hide from me all the time. The little grey one was the one who was most adventurous, and thus he was the first to become close to us.

He used to wait for me to come home from work every day and then nuzzle my feet or hop onto the sofa and asked to be pet. I'm really going to miss him. The above picture was taken on the last day I saw him alive.

His name was Riffraff. He was a sweet, friendly and loyal little cat. I'll never forget him.

His sisters (Minnie and Mungo) are now missing. I fear they may be dead too.

I'm sure Riffraff was a worthy cat warrior! Kahless awaits him at the gates of Sto-vo-kor!

Goodbye, Riffraff. :(

Rest in peace Riffraff. I wish I'd met you in feline/person.

Have Minnie and Mungo turned up yet? They might be in mourning. Cats usually do when their companion leaves.

No animal deserves that. Ever.

Ils prennent en songeant les nobles attitudes
Des grands sphinx allongés au fond des solitudes,
Qui semblent s'endormir dans un rêve sans fin;
Leurs reins féconds sont pleins d'étincelles magiques,
Et des parcelles d'or, ainsi qu'un sable fin,
Etoilent vaguement leurs prunelles mystiques.
— Charles Baudelaire ("Les Chats" au Fleurs du Mal)

You had a little magic from Riffraff when he was around on that you are fortunate.

I hope his sisters are well but scared somewhere safe
*hugs*

Poor little buddy :( I trust he's hunting mice in the big jungle gym in the sky, getting a headscratch any time he wants, and the sunbeam is always warm and ready for a nap.
