Voice from Beyond

Hello friends, Tortie here. I would like to thank you all for the purrs, prayers, hugs and love expressed. I am comforted and truly blessed to have so many friends all over the world.

In my nine and a half years, I only allowed EJ to carry me with the exception, of course, my doctors during check-ups. If relatives and friends requested, I would allow EJ to place me on their laps or arms for a limited time only. The reason was EJ cared and carried me since I was born. I was not born exactly healthy; click here if you want to know.

EJ was amused on how I relaxed and said I was a cat version of Jabba the Hutt, an alien character of the famed Star Wars.

Due to my condition at birth, my hind legs looked a bit atrophied. And I liked sticking my arm out in anticipation to touch when EJ walked past.

I was truly relaxed in sleep.

I love squeezing in small places which never failed to make EJ uncomfortable.

Whenever I slept on the catwalk, I held on to the railing so I would not fall off in mid-sleep like some of my roommates.

EJ used to laugh when I made sexy poses like these.

These shades showed I was cool.

I looked dashing.

EJ used to say my eyes were the most expressive ever on my handsome face.

Now EJ can sleep a little longer in the mornings as I would not be making morning calls anymore. Hope EJ will not miss it too much.

Got to go, 4Head's waiting. Have great, loving days ahead. Purrrrrs!

Tortie, your character showed how much fun you're and how happy you were with EJ. Me and my mom do nonstop smile and laugh when we saw your photos

Me and my mom are so happy to see your loving soul are still around EJ, We think she can feel you. Tortie, Did you ever heard this quote

" To live in hearts we leave behind
Is not to die. " I think that's what EJ feel about you.

Tortie, You have a good rest with 4 Head. My mom believes one day , you will reborn again as EJ's child.

And EJ, Please have a relaxing weekend.

Love and Purrs
Puddy and Boom

Tortie, this post made our hearts ache. Sad that you have gone on, but glad you had a wonderful human who gave you all the love and care possible. *Kitty kisses* at the Bridge. If you see mom's beloved Chumley, tell him she's waiting to see him again.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We loved this special post Tortie and know you are happy with 4Head again. We will miss you but will be able to come back and see your pictures and smile.
Go and enjoy the open space and green grass to run on with your painfree legs.
Luv Hannah, Lucy and mum Sue xxxxxx

Tortie this was a super duper post. We were so glad to see all your pictures. You sure had a super person in EJ to take such good care of you and let everything be normal for you. We think you had a great life. EJ, we know you miss Tortie but so many good memories. Take care.

Dear Tortie,

You were so lucky to have such a loving person like EJ to care for you all your life. You were quite a handsome dude and character too. Great poses and such a fun personality! We are sorry you had to go to the Bridge. You will be joined by 4head and all those who went before you. Much love,

What a very sweet post itbrought me some tears though. I love all the pictures. You were a beautiful cat Tortie. We will miss you as I am sure many others do.

Kay L. Davies said...

Tortie, I only knew you for a short time but it was enough to show me the love you and EJ shared, and I can see that love is still there in EJ's memory of you. A wonderful relationship, a wonderful cat.

Dear Tortie
We are so glad you posted as it was so good to hear from you again. You are a remarkable mancat and we all held you in such high regard. 9 and 1/2 years is not long enough and we are so sorry your life was cut short, but we know you are now with 4head and happy and running free of any constraints. We know you will wait by the bridge until your beloved EJ comes for you once again. Until we all meet again...

hugs and purrs

I'm so sad about Tortie and for you, EJ, but what a wonderful guy he was, and he had a wonderful life with you. A lucky chap indeed! I love all these cute pictures of him. I know you must miss him. I know I will. I wonder if Tortie knows Pickles, my beloved kitty who passed away a few years ago. He liked to sit like Jabba too.

lupie said...

EJ - I am all weepy now.

Thanks for sharing the photos. I know how much you are missing Tortie.

I am truly amazed by your kindness towards not only Tortie but many other 'lil kitties who will only whisper of good things to "whom in may concern" - you will be blessed!


Gattina said...

I am afraid Tortie to tell you that EJ misses you very much. But with the time she will get used to your absence and then she knows that there were you are now you are feeling much better. If you see my 3 cats Piccola, Mitzi and Max, say hello to them they died looooong time ago, but are still in my heart !

Thanks EJ for the senior compliment ! I laughed so much about your comment รง!

Dear Friend!I had no any food to give that cat after shooting.

Sharon Wagner said...

He really did have a jabba quality. But was as adorable as master luke. I'm sorry he's gone.
