For the Caturday Art blog hop, hosted by the Wise and Beautiful Athena and her HuMum, Marie and for the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the amazing Kitties Blue and their HuMom, Janet, this week We are honouring yet another new Angel, who was called away unexpectedly to the Rainbow Bridge on Saturday, January 23rd.
Gingi was only three years old and had been raised from kittenhood by Mummy's non-blogging friend, Ms. F. whom Mummy mentioned a few weeks ago.
As Mummy wrote then, Ms. F. has been trapped in Switzerland for almost a year, due to health problems and the Evil Coronavirus Pandemic.
Ms. F.'s furbabies are being cared for by Ms. I. Until Friday January 22nd, Gingi seemed to be purrfectly alright, although according to what Ms. F. told Mummy, the v-e-t said he had apparently been born with a heart defect. When Ms. I. looked for him to feed and pet him on Saturday, she couldn't find him at furrst, but when she went to look for him, it was too late. He had already departed for the Bridge. It is terribly sad to know Gingi was alone when the Great Cat in the Sky called him home - but We believe that at least he had his fursibs with him. And it is a comfort to know that in the three years he had on this earth, after he was adopted off the streets by Ms. F. (when he was a furry little kitten), he knew nothing but Love and Happiness. So many helpless, homeless kitties, born and bred on the streets, never know even that!
Here are a few more pictures of Gingi, that Ms. F. sent to Mummy. In the furrst one, you can see what a furry good and loving brofur he was to his fursibs:
We have chosen the furrst picture, of Gingi with one of his beloved fursibs, for Our Caturday Art this week. We used two art effects from Mummy's favourite LunaPic website.
This one was made using the Gauguin art effect, which enhances the gingeriness for which Gingi was named:
And for this one, We used the more delicate Frida art effect:
This one, on the other paw, emphasises Gingi's tabbiness.
Which one do you prefurr?
We are sorry Our Posts have been so sad lately.
We want to end on a pawsitive note, so We will just mention that Mummy has had her second anti-COVID jab and that here in Israel, three million people (about a third of the pawpulation) have already been vaccinated.
Now, before We start blog hopping and visiting Our Furriends, here are the blog hop badges:
