Cats & Quilts - a match made in heaven... (except maybe those stubborn little clouds of fur that latch on to the fabric!)

Kitty Quote of the Day

I love cats because I enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul. - Jean Cocteau

No More Weekends With Brunnie =^..^=


Dear friends, it is the end of an era for me. Today Little Brunnie went to heaven to be with his Grandma. 



The last couple of weeks he has been loosing weight rapidly & showing signs that things were deteriorating. Last night at 1.30am he had a very long seizure and took a long time to recover from it. He & I slept on the couch together having big hugs which was a fitting last night for my darling boy. This morning he appeared to have a new lease on life but by 11.30am was seizing again. I couldn't let my little man suffer further so a call to our vet & Rudolph fitted in an appointment for us at 12.30.


Rudolph confirmed what I already knew, it was time to let my little man go and start celebrating all the time we have spent together & all the memories we have made. It was a honour to hold my little man as he very peacefully slipped from this world to be bundled up in to his Grandma's arms. You won't be able to wipe the smile off Grandma's face now.





There was no doubt that Little Brunnie was a pampered puss cat, had a long and happy life and was very well loved. His purrs were loud, his bed time cuddles legendry and the memories his daddy & I have of him make us smile and laugh and always will do.

Little Brun's fairly new found love of blogging certainly falls in to that category. Thank you all for your indulgence of our funny posts. He really was a kitty who loved a good keyboard and was quite appreciative of a little fame at long last.



Rest in peace my little man. You made muma's heart brim with love & laughter and will continue to do so forever more. xx Big purrs from Hun-bun who will miss you greatly. xx

Happy memories
Tracee xx

  4. Tracee, my condolences - I know how hard it is to lose a beloved pet - we were devastated when our Coco passed on. But as you say, we need to celebrate our lives together with them.
    hugs, Kaye

  5. Dear Tracee, thanks for sharing this post and I am sending a huge virtual hug to you. It is never easy to lose a loved one but I hope you can take comfort in the fact that Brunnie was loved by so many. He will be missed but there is comfort in knowing that he is keeping someone else's lap warm and finding the perfect sunning spot for when you join him.
    Lots of hugs.

  6. Aw, Tracee, so sad to hear this news and I know how hard it is. I had to have my 15yo Golden Retriever put to sleep a couple of years ago and even though it was the right thing to do, it is so painful. I so loved to hear about Brunnie's adventures. Hugs to you and Hun Bun too.

  9. So sorry to hear of your heartbreak Tracee - and that it is, when one of our cats leave us for heaven. We lost our own 'Pepper' not too long ago, though we unfortunately didn't get the opportunity to say goodbye - He knew it would be too hard for us to say goodbye to him, so he skulked off somewhere to leave elsewhere :( ... They truly are family, aren't they?!!
    Big hugs!! I will be praying for peace, xx ...

  11. Brunnie, our furry feline blogger, I will miss reading your hilarious posts. Be a good kitty for your Grandma, and don't get into any trouble.
    How blessed you were to be loved and owned by Tracee... oh wait, I forgot that cats ARE NOT owned!!
    Much Love x

  13. Tracee...sending you a Big HUG which I know doesn't help take away the pain, but know that I am thinking about you and all you are feeling right now. We lost our dear pup, Maggie on the 23rd and I still feel so empty. But you are so right - celebrate the wonderful life you shared with Brunnie...you will smile as happy memories fill your heart - you will weep because your heart feels so lonely without him...they say in time we will heal and it will get easier - we've been down this road before and it's true...sometimes it just take a very long time to get there. HUG!!!

  40. Tracee I am a fairly new reader of your blog, but I know how much your beautiful Brunnie meant to you - they become such a huge part of your life. Think I cried for two weeks when I lost my beautiful Millie dog, so thoughts are with you

  44. I was sad to read your latest post that said Hun Bun had the bed to himself and of course when I found this post I cried. I will miss Brunnie's blog posts. It is so worth having the little blighted around even if it is not as long as we would like. A big hug from me and Stumpy.
