RIP Paddy

I have written before on Beau's new-found friend Paddy....how he would play with it for hours...well our new kitty B'Elana took one look at it and just had to have it....

So she pounced on the unsuspecting Paddy one night and "skinned" it....she just took it out of its wrapper. She ignored the "inside stuff" and focused on the plastic cover. For hours she raced with it in her mouth, let it go and walked away--only to return quickly and pounce on it again.

And then came Beau....he took one look at his beloved pal, Paddy, and just lay down sphinx-like in front of the remains. He had a puzzled look as he took a paw and gently bat at his lifeless friend...it seemed as if his entire world crumbled down around him...Finally, he just put his head on his paws and laid there...when I tried to remove the remains he would growl at me....

I expect him to be wearing a black armband any day now...

oh dear! i'm so sorry about his loss. i can imagine how he feels...

our dog, snuffy, had a toy she dearly loved. it was a mouse wearing a sombrero. we called him poncho. we had poncho for years. one day he got a hole in him. poncho no longer made his squeaky noise. snuffy picked him up gently and carried him to the corner of the room. stood and looked at him for a moment then turned away. she never touched that toy again. it was so sad.
of course that was a toy, not a feminine product... ;) cats are quirky!
