Our dear orange floof, Ringo, died suddenly of what I can only assume was a heart attack, while we were out shopping.

Ringo... July 1, 2017-November22, 2019
He was a fourteen pound ball of floofy love.  His goofy affection helped me get through Aloysius’s passing last summer.

I am devastated and heartbroken.

As always, thanks for stopping by.............*s8


  1. Dearest Suzi,
    Oh my Lord, what a way to come home from shopping... SO shocking indeed!
    If you have an autopsy done you may know for sure... but due to his weight it might have been a heart attack.
    Such a sweet boy and than a very short life... It hits us real hard when we lose them too young! Like our first girl, not even two years old as she got hit by a car, no wounds but she died in my arms minutes later... Heartbroken! And our Spooky boy who died of heart worm at age 4.5 was heartbreaking and even our Barty grieved for months about him; they were inseparable. The most grief has brought the disappearance of the Mama cat that we flew home from Acapulco and not knowing she was pregnant... We still have 4 of her 5 babies born here in our home. Lost one also by hitting a car. But the Mama mysteriously vanished on Sunday morning while we were in Church and had potluck lunch afterwards... That has hit me so hard. NOT knowing where she is and if she got killed. Our fur babies are family and it hurts. A big hug and hope the rest of them can handle it.

  2. Dearest Mariette,
    Thank you so very much for your kind and thoughtful words.
    LuckyPeach in particular looks for him. She still gave him a bather every morning. Breakfast was very strange for both Peach and Grayby. They kept looking around with questioning faces.
    Before the woods became so dangerous we used to let our kitties out. Once or twice we had them disappear. Zeke was our huge Maine Coon cat. We never did find him. As you say, not knowing is the worst.
    Wishing you and Pieter a good weekend......*s*

  3. so so very sorry, such a sweet boy Ringo so lovely lounging there, each and every cat touches our lives; they give much to us. (two years old and a heart attack, not sure about that unless it was a congenital heart defect) not knowing is the worst (we never found our Barney), we keep our Bonkers indoors except on the screen porch which he loves. adequate words fail me and only time can ease your loss.

  4. Hi Linda.....thanks for your kind thoughts.
    We haven’t let our kitties out for over twenty years. Lions, Tigers and Bears oh my, well fisher cats, coyotes, and hawks.

  5. I am so sorry to hear this; so painful to lose them, ever, and especially unexpectedly. I hope there is some comfort in knowing you gave him a beautiful life full of love.

  6. He was a lovely looking cat. I'm sorry you lost him so unexpectedly. Our pets leave a big space when they leave us.
