Teared Up A Little Bit

I have to admit I’d get a little misty. Mr. Bowie would have turned 11 today. I still miss him every day. But knowing a lot of people from all over the world share beautiful memories of my sweet boy comforts me. Happy Birthday, my dear Bowie.

  1. I didn’t have Louie the ginger cat until he was an adult kitty of five (estimated) years of age. For that reason, the sad day for me is August 1st, the day in 2011 he died. On the other hand, when i picked up- his ashes at the veterinarian clinic a few days later, I met Andy the Persian kitten, then five weeks old, and agreed to take him when he was old enough to leave his mother. Life goes on, I try to remind myself, yet, like you and Mr. Bowie, we don’t forget our kitty buddies when they pass. Hugs on this sad anniversary, Herman. Jimi has a hard task to follow such a fine kitty boy as Mr. Bowie.

  2. Mr. Bowie no doubt IS there with you Herman to celebrate his birthday – Angels celebrate too! I know he’d want you to have some extra chocolate while you think about all the years you two had together and how Jimi has come into your life to keep you smiling…….I have no doubt Mr. Bowie “arranged” that so you’d have company……….sending you a comforting hug……………


  3. Happy Birthday beautiful Mr Bowie, wherever you are. I don’t know if dogs and cats both go to the same place but if you meet my lovely Jack greet him kindly. My Jack passed away on 6 March, 2020, about a month before his 13th birthday.

  4. For me it’s the same thing. I still think of Miss Titi and yet she left five years ago … I have her photo on my computer screen and I speak to her often.

  5. Well no wonder I had such an affinity for Mr. Bowie! We nearly shared the same birthday. Yesterday was my birthday (more than 11 but maybe not in cat years) and today is my granddaughter’s birthday. We remember you fondly, Mr. Bowie and treasure the memories of joy you left with us, Alia

  6. Over the rainbow bridge there are lots of treats and catnip. You will always miss him, but you have the wonderful memories of such a sweet and interesting companion and friend. He probably never knew he had fans all over the world, but we remember……..

  7. Sending you hugs, Herman, on this sad anniversary. We feel your loss, and will help keep Mr. Bowie’s memory alive. Snuggle that Jimi cat, too. I am sure he knows you are sad today.

  8. Happy Birthday to Mr. Bowie in kitty cat heaven! There is always at least one furry little face that wraps itself around our heart and never lets us forget.

    The kids and I are sending hugs and a warmth of understanding to you, Herman. You can celebrate Bowie’s life with Jimi and with treats for both of you.

  9. Hugs, Herman. I’ll never forget Mr. Bowie. I wish you could have had more time with him. Many wishes for a Happy Birthday at the Rainbow Bridge.

  10. I miss Mr. Bowie so much, that plush grey velvet fur making him such a handsome mancat. It’s hard to believe he’s gone, the evil that is cancer takes too many babies too soon. It is comforting to know he sent Jimi to help him watch over and be with you on Earth Herman. Happy Birthday at the Bridge Bowie! 💙🐾🌈🎉🎈🎁

  11. Awe, I understand your sadness, Mr. Bowie had just such a special place in your heart and there is no replacement. Jimi is a lovely companion in your life and will fill all the gaps of your sadness. And eventually he will become an international celebrity of the wordpress community like Mr.Bowie. I hope you had enough chocolate and espresso to get you through this day. Meow greetings from over the ocean.

  12. Herman there is a row of urns on my mantelpiece. Sometimes I get very sad when I think my feline friends who are gone. Then I see the urns and think what a joy and privilege it was to have had a chance to share life with you. It is a bond of love not even death can sever. We are all so lucky you shared the wonderful Mr. Bowie with us.

  13. I don’t think we ever get over losing our furries. But, we have many, many good memories of them. No matter what we experience in our day-to-day, absolutely no one can take away those memories, those days. And, if we’re lucky, their spirits will make a short visit, which we see from the corner of our eye and know they’re doing well.

  14. Happy Birthday in heaven Mr. Bowie. You are missed and loved. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

  15. Hi Herman. We miss Mr. Bowie too. Happy 11th to him. He will always be with you. Remember and cherish those memories you have of him.

  16. Happy Birthday Mr. Bowie. Sorry for the tears. Just miss you, handsome, and hope you enjoy the day.

    Herman, I haven’t been online for a long time. Well, I opened some links now and then, but it had been sporadic. However I think I am getting better and will manage a quality interactions with my blogger friends in the nearest future. Love to you and Jimi.

    • Hi Inese. Thank you so much for your kind comment and concern.
      Hope you feel better soon and wishing you all the best, my friend!

  18. Oh my dear Herman…….for some reason I did not receive this post of yours – almost as if my Angel Sammy was protecting my tender heart from thinking another sad thought (!). I know you must miss sweet Bowie – we all do – he was a really special cat and the two of you had a wonderful life together. Jimi is doing his best to heal your heart – that’s what they do – but we know it’s never QUITE the same. Sending you a hug………….a big one.


  19. I don’t think I got this post either. How strange, this of all posts. I’m glad so many of us who loved Mr. Bowie DID get it, and did respond to keep you company on a sad day. I am showing up late but all here.
