Goodbye sweet Soraya

Early this morning my sweet sister Soraya went to Rainbow Bridge.

On April 24, 2007 she came into our lives when I found her in the animal shelter in Geleen. Last night all of a sudden she got sick, the vet could not help her anymore so the staff took her back home. Soraya softly purred and snuggled with them all night, until around 8 AM she peacefully went to the Bridge.

Goodbye Sweet Girl!

Thank you so much KC for this beautiful graphic of our beautiful girl!

Princes Carnival 2009

In the carnival period not the mayors are head of the towns, but the princes of Carnival are…

Last night the official Carnival (4 days) started. Earlier my husband Karl transported to Limburg again because he and I are chosen as Cat Princes Carnival 2009 of my hometown Heel!
…and SOMECAT sneaked herself in Karl’s duffel bag… (No, not Sassy! Hahahaha)

Prince Ruis I & Prince Karl I - Carnival Heel
