Smudge Saturday

hmmmm . . . It seems our interlopers have been sneaking onto our blog when no one is watching. We'll have to deal with that later. For the moment, we want to do a post for Smudge and his beans.

Radcliff here.

We never really knew Smudge very well, but we were watching and purrrring for him during his battle with this ugly parasite. We're hoping Zoe and their beans are feeling a little better, and are thinking about Smudge's life, and not his end.

We saw this video on zazamataz, and we thought it said what needed said much better than we ever could. (even if it IS about a woofer!)

for those of you who don't want to wait for the video to download, you can read the entire poem at "Beau". The last few lines are

He would wake up at night
And he would have this fear
Of the dark, of life, of lots of things,
And he'd be glad to have me near.

And now he's dead.
And there are nights when I think I feel him
Climb upon our bed and lie between us,
And I pat his head.

And there are nights when I think
I feel that stare
And I reach out my hand to stroke his hair,
But he's not there.

Oh, how I wish that wasn't so,
I'll always love a dog named Beau.

sneaking onto the computer

hi.  we're the two little black kitties.  we just sneaked onto the computer.  not sure how long we're gonna be able to talk.  dad doesn't know the internet connection is working, again, for the moment, anyway.

yeah.  we've started calling him dad.  he took care of us when we were out in the yard freezing our tails off.  he's feeding us the same thing the rest of the family gets.  we sleep in the house, and he greets us when he comes home same as he greets the rest of the family.  he's dad.

he still says he's trying to find us another home, but we think his mother wants to keep us.  one time someone called for information about the 'free cats' (us! free cats! indeed!), and she said "she didn't know anything about that", and hung up on the guy.

so we've been cuddling up with them, sleeping with them at night, and generally trying to convince them both that they really, really need two more cats in the house.

wish us luck!
