Dancing


MILES

Last night, after efurryfing had calmed down from our furry bad day, Mommy picked each one of us up and danced wif us. She saided that she used to dance wif Trixie all the time, spinning round and round and singing. She saided that she wanted to celebrate Trixie's long life and the loved that she gived to all of us, and the bestest way to do that was to do what she liked doing and 'amember her. We sat and thinked of all the fings that Trixie likded to do. Staring at the wind was boring (plus, there was no wind inside). Biting toes gets old quick. There was no christmas tree lights to chew on, (we will save this for the holiday seasn). We settled on dancing. We spinned round and round and Mommy singed "you are my sunshine" - I could not begin to tell you the tune 'acause it maded my ears hurt to listen, but I liked the dancing part. It gived me happy thoughts of Trixie.

SAMMY

I would like to fank efurryone for coming to visit us yesterday and sit wif us. Last night I just sitted in Norton's spot on the couch and stared at Trixie's blankie that was across the room. Then Mommy camed ofurr and we danced. Like Miles said, the dancing was fun, the singing was horrible. But it was a nice way to 'amember Trixie.

Tonigh at 9pm our time (6pm for west coast kitties) Patches, Mittens, Mistrie and CalicoMom are having a candle lighting ceremony for Trixie. Please come to the Big Piney Woods wif us to purr for her. And then after, maybe we can all dance in her memory. And then maybe after that, we could all purray for Luna.

Efurryone is invited ofurr anytime this week if you wants to come and visit wif us.

Meezer Mom and Dad

We would like to thank everyone for all of your kind words and thoughts and for all the cards and messages sent through Trixie's Rainbow Bridge site. We really appreciate the kindness you have all shown us.

Thank goodness for memories!

Trixie is happy now, out of pain and able to see and hear and play in the daisies.

See you tonight. Blessings to all at the Meezer house.

We're sad that Trixie is gone, but we've loved reading all of the memories you have of her. I think we understand better now how Mom felt about Heather. Mommy said she used to dance with her, too. She says Heather would lay on her back, and Mom could hold her bottom in one hand and her shoulders in the other, outstretched, and dance with her. Heather trusted her that much. Maybe this story will let her try dancing with us, too (as long as she doesn't try that upside-down-in-midair stuff).

We will all miss, you, Trixie. You were a grand lady.

Oh with all our moving I missed all this happening. We're all so sorry to hear about Trixie's passing. That is the same thing that happened to Fluffy, the cat who came before us. He was 19 years old. At least you know she lived a good, full life full of adventure and love. Our collective hearts go out to your family.

That sounds like a lovely way to remember Trixie. Though I don't like to be touched much, I think I would have put up with it to remember Trixie. We will certainly all be at the big Piney Woods to purr for Trixie!

Zeus said...

She's dancing now for sure with her golden paws and light footwork along the clouds. Trixie will always be remembered by those who loved her...

Gemini said...

That was furry sweet. I hope that you all start feeling better. Miss Trixie no doubt is watching you all and wishing she could tell you that she feels much better and can see and jump and attack and play with Norton and Ralphie again.

Victor Tabbycat said...

Kukka-Maria said...

What a great way to pay tribute to Gramma Trixie! She was probably singing, dancing and laughing right along with you.

Our love to you...

What a beautiful way to remember such a beautiful soul.

We'll -- ML, MBE, KC & Bear -- be joining you tonight at the Piney Woods, maybe Miles and Sammy can show KC and Missy the dance.

I've danced with Bear all her life, she is quite a good dancer, too -- very light on her feet. "I Could Have Danced All Night" is "our" song.

Trixie will be dancing with us.

caspersmom said...

So nice Miles and Sammy that you and your Mom are celebrating Trixie's life with dancing and singing, even if you didn't like the singing. I'm sure Trixie would really like it that way. She is a beautiful girl kitty and she is so glad that she was loved by all of you. There are great memories she left you.

Shadow and Sasha said:

Meowmy can't come tonight, but we'll be there purring away.

Meowmy said:
To quote an old Beatle's song -
"And in the end
the love you take
is equal to the love you make".

Our pets spend their entire lives giving love to their beans. I am absolutely convinced that when they go to the bridge that they take our love with them. This love is the energy that sustains them until we are able to join them once again.

Magoo, Smudge, Bella & Dolce said...

Dear Sammy and Miles,

Dance like no one is watching.

Could I have this dance for the rest of my life?
Would you be my partner every night?
When we're together, it feels so right.
Could I have this dance for the rest of my life?

Dance away.
