It's Me here, the Mighty Shimshon (Shimshi for short).
We wanted to write to you yesterday, but Mummy was feeling furry sad and not in the mood for turning on the computer thingy. She was sad because yesterday, it was exactly two years since Possum, Who Came Before, flew away to the Bridge.
I didn't understand what the Bridge was, until my Big Sisfur Trixie explained it to me. Now I understand why Mummy was so sad.
Trixie and Caspurr told me that Mummy likes to post pictures of Possum, on his Jahrzeit, so we helped her pick out some of the nicest. I have to say, he was a furry handsome Mancat. Mummy must have a thing about handsome Mancats. That's why She chose Me (and Caspurr, of course) to keep her company after Possum went away. Of course, Trixie is furry pretty too - but she's a girl.
Anyway, here are the pictures we have picked out in Possum's memory.
This is Possum the day he furrst came to live with Mummy. He was a bit bigger than I was, when I furrst arrived on Mummy's door-step.
And here he is, on the arm-rest of the armchair, one of his favourite perches.
And here he is with his little sisfur, Pixie. She, too, now lives at the Bridge.
This is Possum with his
In this next picture, Possum is about twelve years
Mummy especially loves this picture because it shows Possum's adorable pink paws. (My paws are mostly pink too, but this post is about Possum, not about Me.)
And here he is, playing with Mummy's sandals. I also love playing with Mummy's sandals (mol).
And here, finally, is one of Mummy's favourite pictures, taken about seven weeks before Possum decided to fly away to the Bridge. He is asking to be snorgled (or "sproggled", as Mummy calls it).
Of course Mummy couldn't resist such a request.
Trixie and Caspurr and I are furry sorry We neffur had a chance to meet Possum, but at least We get to see these nice pictures of him and hopefully, some of you who possibly remember him, will be able to tell Us some more about him - and Pixie also.
Now we will light a candle in Possum's memory and snuggle up next to Mummy, with comforting purrs.
