30 December 2008

last day of 2008

On my last post of the year, I'm going to show you my last photos of my precious Eddie. I showed a photo previously which I thought was Eddies' last photo, but in fact, these ones are the very last. Steve took these on Christmas Eve and I'm so glad I thought of it, to have one last photo of Eddie with me at Christmas. (I think I must have said 'last' five times in this paragraph!)

The photos are not very good, but they're all I have. I guess we need to play around with our camera's options some more, because at night the photos appear so grainy.

I'm thrilled that Edie's photo got a nomination for best cat photo on the flikr group, Siamese cats and their feline brothers. What an honor for a beautiful cat and a beautiful photo taken by Steven.

On December 27th, when Eddie passed away, I lit a candle beside one of his framed photos, actually his only framed photo, that is a black and white photo of him from when he was only about a year old.

I can tell you we're all pretty sad about Eddie. Even Lulu looks like she knows something is amiss in our household, but actually, she usually has a sad worried look, so what do I know.

Archie, my other kitty, doesn't seem that affected by the loss of Eddie, maybe a bit out of sorts, crying a wee bit more than usual, but he is a crier....an annoying one at that. Steve is usually shhhhhing him, or chasing him away because he is so irritating sometimes. Wish he were more like Eddie, always so calm and quiet. But Archie's personality is that of a rebel, probably due to being a red head!

Eddie sure loved the sun! Every time I see a patch of sunlight on the floor, I will think of him, and how much he loved sitting in the sun, working on this tan.

Lastly, I wanted to wish my wonderful and ever so cute nephew Callum, a very Happy Birthday today. He is 3 years old now, and his little adorable brother Sean, will be turning the big 1 on Jan. 1.

I wish you much peace and comfort. I hope Eddie met up with our dearly departed sunbathing Simba and Ida Goldfish over the rainbow bridge.

Have a wonderful new year.

Very nice tribute to eddie. I am sure the other animals no something is missing, and feel a little of the loss, too.
