In memory of Grouik… let’s enjoy life

Hiya everyone.

It feels kind of hard getting back to blogging and the humans are not feeling too well. But my human and I agreed that how hard it might be, we still can’t stop living and we owe it to Grouik to be strong and to enjoy life.

Milou and I are a bit confused. Someone is missing here. Who is going to finish my food now? Well, okay Milou will try, but the humans will prevent him from doing it (because he’s on a special diet).

Also I can’t go out now. My human is all nice and cuddling me all the time (and I am doing my best to console her too) but I can’t go out. She promised to go out with me though.

My human and I will resume reading your bloggies my furriends. Please forgive us if we don’t comment just yet, we’re often left with a loss for words or meows.

Before we resume some kind of regular blogging, we would like to dedicate this post to Grouik. We will also work on a special page in the menu (just for him).

Here are a couple of pictures of us together. Hope you will like them. At the end of the post is a video I had already posted but that I want to post again. Hope you like it.

Take care everyone, hug your humans and stay safe.

This first one was taken here in the U.S. It is not very good quality because it was taken with an old iPhone.

This second one is even worse quality, I know, but it is the three of us. It was taken in Brussels, Belgium. Please forgive the mess (we were partly responsible).

This last one was taken in France, in my human’s old bedroom, at her Mom’s place. Please forgive the mess too, that was just before we all moved.

And here is the video. Tomorrow or the day after, regular blogging will resume. We love you Grouik!

  2. Great tribute for Grouik my dear Texas. I can imagine how you and your human feel these days. It’s must be really hard. Just take your time…
    It seems we were almost neighbors some years ago, we live not far from Brussels… Take care my friends.

  3. Thanks so much for this wonderful tribute, Texas. Me and my mom love all of the pictures and the video of Grouik. We’re still thinking about Grouik almost all day long….his cute face comes across our mind…..We believe he still alive in your heart and in our heart. *pawhugs*

  4. Texas, looking at photos of Grouik and especially all of you together is one of the best things you can do. You have a lot to remember, take your time and remember as much as you can. We’ll still be here when you are ready.

    I love that bedroom shot. It’s a classic.

  5. Texas,
    I share your and your human’s feelings. I still can’t get our Buster, my best friend [I hope you’ll understand when I call a canine and not a feline “my best friend”] out of my mind ever since he disappeared [http://pitstexasexpatblog.wordpress.com/2011/06/21/buster-has-gone/]. And even if that’s been more than a year now I still hope – against all odds – that he’ll be there, wagging his tail, when I come home.
    Take good care of yourself and your humans,
    Pit

  18. What a really nice Memorial for Grouik. He sure was a very handsome cat. I am so sorry to hear that he has passed on. It is so sad with all that traveling all of you went through that he had to pass when you got to your destination. Purrs, Prayers and hugs to you and your family in your time of grief.

  19. We are still purring for the loved one left behind. Grouik was very lucky to have a family who loved him, so many deserving animals never know that joy. We hope you find comfort in that thought.

  22. Je viens de découvrir Grouik et les merveilleuses pages que vous lui avez consacrées !
    J’ai pris le temps de regarder les vidéos, de lire quelques textes, c’était un chat merveilleux !
    Sûr que ce chat a été très heureux !
    Et maintenant, c’est lui qui veille sur vous …
