In Memory of Calvin - November 18, 2008


Those of you who have either come to Sunday Soup, or are regular followers of this blog, know that our neighbour, Carol, was accompanied by her wonderful cat Calvin to almost every Sunday Soup, rain or shine. He came for the company, the catnip, and the food (no, not the soup...our cats' food!). He was loved by all, a sweetie beyond words...but this week he had to move on to his tenth life. We will all miss him at Sunday Soup. As will this deer who used to love to give Calvin a bath.

I am pleased to say that I was able to harvest the last five or six leaves of catnip and give them to Calvin before he moved on, and while he wasn't really eating any longer, he did nibble the leaves and rub my hand. Blessings to Calvin's family: Carol, Tigre, Hobbes, and Biscuit. Calvin, you will be missed, but always remembered at Sunday Soup.

Condolences to Carol and all the Calvin friends on Gabriola. The death of a beloved pet is always sad, no matter how much you tell yourself to keep it in perspective. Our longtime cat went to his tenth life ten years ago next month, and we still miss him. We do have time-shares in a couple of neighborhood cats, but it's just not the same.

Calvin- I never knew you- but I know I would have loved you.

Thoughts to Carol and family.

So sorry to hear that Calvin has gone to the great catnip garden in the sky. Good for him maybe, but oh so sad for those he leaves behind. My deepest sympathy to you all. . .
