No longer by my side but forever in my heart.

Dear Umi,

Tsuru is still jealous of you.
Comes running whenever I call your name.
Shhhh . . .  don't tell her, 
it is now my trick to get her to come to me.
She is clueless. 


  1. You are funny! : ))

    Remembering Umi. XXOOO

  2. I am sure you still miss her, she was a gorgeous car

  3. So sorry for you loss. I know Umi will be greatly missed.

  4. Very sorry for your loss, Wendy. Is Tsuru really jealous, or just comforting you ? I'm sure it's the latter ... cats can tell & care, even though they pretend as if they are not really as social as dogs !

  5. Umi passed away 3 years ago. I write a post every year on that day to remember her,

    Thank you Fox, Tsuru makes me smile. She does!
    Thank you Margaret. I know you meant cat.
    Thank you Sue for your e-mail.
    Thank you Tattrldy. Umi is missed.
    Thank you Muskaan, Tsuru is a comfort but I do not think she knows that she is. Tsuru does behave more like a dog than a cat. She is a darling.

  6. Time goes by so quickly. Tomorrow marks the day I lost my first cat, Olliver, my so very special buddy and partner in all sorts of adventures. He was one year old when I got him and very, very ill. He lived to be 14. Every day he accompanied the postman on the mail's journey up our street. I found this out a few years after it was ongoing from the mailman. Ollie was such a character. I still miss him. And he was beautiful. A long-haired green-eyed Tabby. We never forget, do we...

    1. Hi Fox, I am sure you have many happy memories of Ollie and yes we never forget. Do you have a photo of Ollie to show us?

  7. I'm so sorry you've lost Uni. She was so pretty.

    1. Thank you. The second photo reminds me of a leopard sunning itself on a rock.
