Suscipe Requiem

Suscipe Republic of Heaven, 5.1.90 to 7.8.11 ~ dearly loved

Suscipe the Magnificent, Suscipe the nobel-hearted, the bombproof, Suscipe the sweet breathed her last at noon today. She is lying in wake with candles by her bed, and tomorrow we will bury her at sea with lilies and catnip according to her last wishes.

She looked like a villain’s cat, all that long white fur and a slightly hooded, baleful glance, but she was the best cat we have ever had, I don’t want another.

    So sad when you lose a constant companion like Suscipe. Pets are irreplaceable, really. xx

  6. Sorry for you. They come in and take over your life and heart, like children do. I hope your memories are all fond and over time make you smile rather than feel sorrow. M.

    Hugs to you Tricia on the loss of Suscipe. When they used to say mass in Latin, Suscipe was the start of a prayer. Faith, in Latin. Suscipe had a wonderful lifetime with you, and I have faith she is someplace good now too.
