Mon beau chat

Viens, mon beau chat, sur mon coeur amoureux;
Retiens les griffes de ta patte,
Et laisse-moi plonger dans tes beaux yeux,
Mêlés de métal et d'agate.

— from "Le Chat," by Charles Baudelaire.

I'll miss you, Calvino cat (1995–2009). Like crazy.
And the girl will too.
(The girl and the cat.)

I'm so sorry. RIP, Calvino.

Arleigh said...

Calvino was quite the cat. My deepest sympathies to his people.

Diana said...

I'm so very sorry.

I'm so sorry about the loss of your family member, and I say that because animals play such a significant role in our lives when we choose.

Oh, this is so sad.
You make me look over at my Jack, and know that one day....... no, I shall not think of it.
I want to go, first.
My condolences to you.
