Happy Sad News


I'm a little blue these days. I just found out my brofur Percy is moving to Catifornia in two weeks. Mom and dad are going there to visit and to look into the housing situation, and they're going to take him there ahead of the rest of us. Percy is going to get his dream, he's going to be an only cat - at least for a few months, before we all move in.

My grandma and Percy have always had a very special relationship, he loves her and she adores him to pieces. Grandma has been kind of lonely since our cousin Annie went to the bridge; she's nefur not had a cat before. Percy also has health issues, and grandma can make sure he eats what he's supposed to and takes all of his medicine without being bothered. And I admit, none of us are very nice to Percy. It's just that he runs, and we like to chase things that run. He's a little older than the rest of us, and he does not like to play the way we do. I love my brofur very much, and I want him to be happy more than anything, and I know this is best for him. I just wish it didn't make me so sad.

In April we're going to be all living together again for at least a year while dad finds a job, mom gets started with law school and they look for a house, but even then Percy will be grandma's cat, and when we leave, he will stay. Mom says when grandma goes on vacation Percy will come and stay with us and we'll still see him, but I can't believe I'm not going to be able to see him for three whole months. Percy was my cage mate when mom and dad came into the shelter to get us. I don't like to think much of the time before then, he's always been there for me. Have you ever been happy and sad at the same time?

Percy will always be our brofur, so don't worry, he will still be keeping efurrybody posted on our bloggie. It will just be grandma taking the pictures! Percy is sponsoring his award for the Best Fur Sibling of the Year award, but now it's going to be called the Percy B. Stephens-Dexter Only Cat Award.

We're thinking of having a going away party for Percy... I'm not too good of a party planner so I'll have to get Abbie involved.

Purrs,

Eliot

We are sorry that Percy will be moving away from you. We know what it is like. We lost our sister, and now she is our cousin...but, we are also excited because y'all are moving here...to our city!!! We are excited beyond belief.

Mom said for us to tell you to have your mom e-mail her if she has time and maybe they can get together to have lunch when she is here in two weeks... taramorse (at) aol (dot) com

We are doing a happy dance that you are moving here!

I'm sorry you are conflicted. Just look at how things worked out over at Four Furry Cats (http://fourfurrycats.blogspot.com/). Smudge had to move out for a while, but he ended up back home with a friend, too. Moving to California is exciting and scary all at the same time. Keep us posted!

I know you will miss Percy but you will get to see him again. It's good that he and Grandma are going to be taking care of each other. Things will be ok, you see.

Don't worry about Percy - we'll go over and chase him for you any time you want. (What, Lady? Oh, he doesn't WANT to be chased? Huh. Strange. Okay then.) Hey - never mind about that last bit. Much as we like to chase cats that run too, we won't. We could go over and visit him though. The Lady says it's a short drive. Well, for her it's short. She drives a lot. Did we tell you what a cute picture of you that is? No? Well, we meant to. Cuz it is. See ya later!
