Malcolm, Beginning Blogger

Hello friends! I'm Malcolm and I've been appointed the new cat blogger since the loss of our noble Lady Leia. 

The doctor (v**) came to the house yesterday to help Leia over the rainbow bridge. We didn't want to make her last moments a trauma by bringing her to the clinic, which she always detested.

Mama held her while she went, and her journey began peacefully and with never-ending love. Her much beloved and soft little body was laid to rest today beside that of her son, Timmy, and a stone was placed which we can all see from the kitchen window. We're all sure that she is cuddling with Timmy now, her tumors all gone, and restored to her full bloom of health. She was a lady with a lot of cattitude, but a loving heart and a gentle soul. She shall be missed.

Mama is doing as well as can be expected. She went to work today and I was in charge for the first time while she was out. The other boys who share our home - Nigel, Winston and Charles - behaved admirably and we all swarmed to greet Mama when she walked in the door. We'll be giving her extra loves over the next days and weeks as she grieves for Leia, who was her dear friend for 17 years.

Just wanted to check in for the first time, say goodbye to Leia and sort of introduce myself. I'm Malcolm! New head of the household and a brown and gray striped tabby. I can't wait to get to know all of you and to keep you updated on the goings on at our place. More later!

WE are so sorry that Leia has gone. We know she is no longer in pain and is cuddling with her boy, Timmy. Please give your Mom lots of cuddles to help her over this sad time. Tell her to take her time and grieve and know many of us have been there and will keep her in out thoughts

So sorry Leia had to go, but she is now with family and friends at the Bridge. I know you will do a wonderful job here.
