Sherpa18 I am so sorry for you loss of Dragon. he knows he was loved, and will always be. I bet he is up in kitty heaven right now, telling of his adventures of spicy wings, caturday, and the mischief he would get into. Know that you have done all you could, and loved Dragon all you could, and know that he will never leave your heart.

Was it you that put Dragon in there?

I remember lobbing back with Watson...not sure if it turned into a full blown tennis match. This is the only one I have.

Sherpa, your community, your family is here for you. Know that we grieve with you. When one of us loses a family member we ALL lose a family member.

Sherpa, I sent a message to my beloved Mikey last night to watch for your Dragon. I am sure he and Jerry were there to meet him and show him around. There must be a heck of a party there right now with all the new kitties dancing and playing in their new found health and vigor. What kind of stories will they tell of us, how funny we looked as we crawled around the floor to get their toys out from under the sofa? The things we did to entertain them with feathers on a stick? How we reacted to the gifts they left us in our shoes?

This is a sad caturday this week, so may sads.

I see from the dates that Dragon and my Chessie are contemporaries in age. All the sock monkeys and kitties are being very sober and well-behaved in the wake of the news. Here's Chessie!

sherpa18: This has obviously been a very brutal Caturday for many people and my sincerest condolences go out to you all.

Unfortunately, it is with a very heavy and broken heart that I have to add to the list as I had to help my white boy over the bridge a few hours ago. As much as I did not want to let him go, I knew in my heart that it was time - and the very least I could do for my faithful friend of almost 18 years was not to make him suffer for my sake.

He was always there for me through the years since he was a kitten - through sickness, family issues, job changes, money problems, divorce and relocation - and all he ever asked for in return was a few chin scritches, a lap to purr on and his gooshy food (and of course the occasional spicy chicken wing).

I would like to believe that I saw gratitude in his eyes as I held him while he slipped away, acknowledging that I was trying to return the favor and be there and do what I believed in my heart what was best for him.

There will never be another cat as special to me as my white one was. I know you will all understand, because in a very real way, Dragon belonged as much to Caturday as he did to me.

Once again, I thank you all for the love and support you have provided to me and the late fuzzy white boy over these many years. You have enriched our lives with your humor, comments and captions, and for welcoming us into the best family we could ever hope to be a part of.

I am so sorry for your loss, Sherpa.  My heart goes out to you.  You were a wonderful Daddy to Dragon, and he was a very fortunate kitty to have a person to love him enough to help him cross when he was ready.  (((HUGS))) from all the denizens of the O(sborne) Z(oo).

For sherpa18...

You and Dragon always were a staple of Caturday. Even when I was first lurking, I always loved your stories of the spicy-wing-demanding-kitteh. And after I became more of a posting-member, I remember how I asked how to get my kittehs to eat pills, and your Dragon let you send some of his pill-pockets to me to help out, along with some toys. My kitties always remember that act of kindness, and still play with those toys today. Everyone here knows and loves Dragon, and it is such a blow to all of his to hear him go. But what a blessing that he has touched so many lives :) We love you, Dragon, sweet overlord.

Ok, maybe a bit irreverent, but I remember doctoring this up for the big guy :) I know some people added other things but due to some compy reformatting I lost em. Here's to you, Dragon!!!!

TOWG: I am beyond devastated. yesterday my son had to make the hardest decision we pet owners have to face. His courage was more than I would expect from a 19 y/o young man. Toby was a sweet young dog,RIP you good boy. After returning home I discovered that my beloved best friend of 8 1/2 years, Scruffles, was in respiratory distress so off to the emergency vet again to see a second loved one be helped over the bridge in the space of 6 of the worst hours of my life. RIP Scruffles. I know it will get better in time but right now I still can't stop crying.



Oh my sweetie, that does totally suck! I am so sorry about the losses in your family. You are obviously loving pet patents who think of them first. (((((((HUGS))))))) to you and your son.

I can imagine the Caturday parties they'll be having up there at the bridge, as you said, telling stories about how silly their humans were.
I hope my Mr T, Genny, Ghost and Jeff also met Dragon and introduced themselves as part of the Caturday gang.
Someday when it's my turn to leave this earth, I hope to see them all again. I'll bring some wings for Dragon, and cheese for my guys.

crawling to ft of pg12, saving copy & pix. Our absently distant friend in Durance SemiVile in Torrington WY, ThingsIDoToMyCats among other names, will get account of Dragon's bridge trip leaving here on Mon's Mulecoach, Most recent word is that he may be free by year's end; hoped to be more than idle rumour. Moves still afoot trying to locate cats he cared for, LittleOne & Patrick in Cheyenne, hoping against hope they're OK & being cared for.
Past loss that still weighs most heavily on me is that of Cheeky, Brit cat from WBerlin who had her own little boy & place at table next to him. Dad was serving member of Her Majesty EIIR's Forces, regiment was posted to NIreland so they all had to leave. 6 mo quarantine still in effect then, which they couldn't afford. Posted note in NAAFI book shop, where I'd go weekly, & read it. Pounce!
i.imgur.com
Here she is in living rm at House In City. It may be as well I don't recall exact date of her back-legs-disabling stroke in 1993, but that was before Internet & one couldn't get back wheels quickly enough. Knew they were available Somewhere Out There, but no clue where.  Had we been able to get, we would've. Cheeky was almost 20, best as we could reckon. I was working, tho could've quit to stay home & mind her since Quality Of Life was deeply threatened. But didn't. Took her to vet we were seeing then, & cuddled her close as shot was given. Bless her heart, she bit me, then licked where she'd bitten. Continued to cuddle until she slipped away.  She continues to be the best cat who's ever agreed to live with us.
Her bones & Gretl's are under the yard behind the garage there. Just snapped pic of stone I had engraved, piece of leftover granite. That laid out back over their plots until we sold that house; were going to leave stone, but buyer was going to either cover it over or discard it, so we brought it with. Get it in next post.
 
2014-03-08 09:49:49 PM  
I had this idea. As we mourn for Dragon, and so many others this weekend, could we purrhaps make a donation, in the name of Caturday, to our local no kill shelter? Or to our own vet, to help others who need funds?We might call it the Dragon Fund, and pay it forward?

lilyspad: tigerose: I hope this is not going to sound flip But I think, with all the losses this week, including our Venerated Dragon, we need an old fashioned Wake. At a Wake, we celebrate a person/critter's life. We tell tales that made us laugh and cry. And we honor them for the influence they have on our lives..

Please allow me to go first? I lurked for a looong time on Caturday. Pre Alien in fact. I never thought I would become part of all this wonderful family. When I de- lurked, it was Sherpa who encouraged me, and I loved the felines swanning over Dragon. I made " potato" toys for Dragon, and once in a while Eli the Bitey would send him toys that met his seal of approval. I even wrote a poem dedicated to Dragon, on his birthday, a few yrs ago. I feel priveleged to have " known" Dragon, even though I never met him.

* raises glass* here is to Dragon, and his faithful human slave. Thank you for gracing my Puurrsdays, and beyond. Rest. Bask forever in the light of our love Dragon. Be at peace dear sherpa.

I agree.  I, too lurked for a long time, and it was Sherpa who gave me the courage to take the plunge and jump into Caturday.  And it was all because of Dragon.  Sherpa has the patience of a saint and I have never known anyone like him!  Dragon and Sherpa sent Lily some toys and such for this past Christmas, and they have been her FAVORITE toys to play with!!!  She will get into her "toy box" and pull those out first!  Thank you, Dragon!!  If I had some spicy wings, I would raise them to you!!!  :D


I am sorry to say that I didn't really know Dragon as well as others here do.  I mostly knew Sherpa as a friend of Alien.  Alien, of course, knew and loved Sherpa and his little white owner well.  Any friend and supporter of Alien is a friend of mine.

I, too, will raise a toast to the memory of Dragon.
