Tummy Tuesday - Couch Potato Walter


This is a scan of a color copy of a 35mm photo.
It is one of Mosaic Lady's top ten favorite shots of Walter. Maybe top 20.
Nearly every photo of Walter was tops.

Our hearts continue to be with Karl and the Staff, especially when they speak of learning to live with the Void left behind by the loss of Anastasia. It's been over three months since Walter left us, and the Void is as big, black, deep and painful as ever.

While all cats are forever remembered, some cats are forever painfully missed.

(PS: We apologize to our friends, Tyler, Miss Peach and Kellie. They were all kind enough to tag us for the catnip meme, but we are not nipheads. Only Walter was. That fact, coupled with the recent sadness over Anastasia, made it too sad of a meme for us to play with. We know you understand, and we thank you for that.)

That pictor of Walter is adorable! Mom still misses her tuxies from afore Bonnie.

Sadie, yur not into nip? How can that be? I mean, one whiff an I's king of the werld! Mom says I's less careful wif my claws an Bonnie says I'm efun MORE obnoxious than afore, but I don't know bout none of that. I just know catnip ROCKS.

The firstest cat wasn't into nip eifur. Purrs to my sweet Sadie!

Oh, what a gorgeous fluffy boy! Did your purrson snorgle his tummy lots? Looks snorgle-icious!
Grr and Cocoa are nipaholics, but I don't care much one way or another. I would, however, be glad to unload the intruder in the bedroom, aka "Lucy". It's making me annoyed that I can't get in there. I keep clawing at the door, but nobody will open it. I hear there's an excellent chance that she's full of kittens. Do you still want her? The people are taking her to the VET tonight for a check up. If she's just excessively fat, we might be able to ship her right away. I sure don't need another Grr in the house eating all the food before I can get there.

Hugs to all of you, precious Mosaic cats. That's a wonderful picture of Walter. And my mom sends hugs to your Lady.

And Bianca, dear, I am glad you are no longer barfing so frequently! I don't barf too much, but I do once in a while because I'm on the floofy side and am prone to hairballs -- ewww, hairballs. My malt remedy helps keep them down, though!

My heart goes out to Karl and the staff. Precious Ana will be so missed -- she is so loved. And I cannot let go of hope that perhaps she will return. What incredible joy and blessing that would be.

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn.

Walter was so beautiful! He looks like he was a big snuggle-bug. I am still very sad about Anastasia, too. It is so hard to believe she is really gone.

I did not know Walter. I was not blogging then. I wish I would have known him. He seemed like he would have been a hepcat like me. I'm sorry you don't have him anymore, but aren't pictures great? My Lady says that when she looks at pictures of her Miss Kitty and her Jim who have went to the bridge that it's like they are still with her.

Ahhhh darling Walter, fluffy fluffy joy joy!
Its OK about the nip meme... maybe you might like to try the Scattergories meme...it is really fun to do...come see if you are up to it. You do need some distraction from the black takeover artist in your midst! Oh and you can even pick which one of you wants to play along...
I bet you will be on pins and needles for a few weeks before you find out from the Guild if you can be an exhibitor...we are keeping EVERYTHING crossed for you around here! That picky bunch better say YES if they know what's good for them....or I will give them heck!!
So glad you came over and had fun at the patio party...a late summer moment of goodness.
Love Peach

That is a wonderful picture of Walter, so peace and tender atmosphere.

You are so right, all cats should be remembered~! I will always pray for Ana, too.

Oh my Walter looked like a floofy ball of love and joy. What a gorgeous picture of Mr. Walter. It has been a hard week this week, with both Ana and now Oscar gone. Our eyes are leaking right now and are hearts are heavy with sadness...it is a time of remembering those that came before us.

Purrss to all......

Excellent photo of Walter.
Just exudes a feeling that
all is well with him and
with the world... that life
on planet earth is safe and
comfortable.
