March 1994 - 4 May 2009

Charly went home in the early light of a misty spring morning.

She was a good and gentle cat and was no trouble at all, even right to the end.

Her many friends in the House of Many Cats mourn her loss.


Tonight, life goes on as usual in the house of Many Cats. But for the first time in over fourteen years, we go on without Charly. I will miss her but I am grateful for the circumstance that brought our lives together so many years ago and allowed us to watch over her, safe to port.

Good-bye, my gentle sea-cat.

So sorry for your loss, Laura! Glad Charly didn't linger on and on in poor health. What beautiful words to express your sentiments!

We're sorry for your loss - Charly defintely landed on her feet when she arrived at your place. It's so hard when we lose our furry buddies...

Hugs to you, and headbutts from my kitties,

Karen (Mum) with Gypsy & Tasha

So sorry to hear of the loss of Charly. I just put down one of mine yesterday, Moochie. I too still have many cats here but the loss of one is still greatly felt. Sounds like she had such a wonderful life with you.

Thank you all for your heartfelt thoughts. Her loss wasn't unexpected but it is a loss nonetheless. She wasn't a dramatic cat but I miss her presence in small, mundane ways.

So sorry to read about your sweet Moochie, possumlady. I know hhe leaves a hole in your heart and in your home. ((hugs))
