Today is a tribute to a joyful spirit we have loved to visit with the Sunday Selfies for many months. We heard the desperate news from his Mum that the Purrince passed suddenly this past week and our hearts broke.
We wish to celebrate Siddartha Henry/Heintje of the NylabluesMom blog. A cat loved by so very many friends. This post is dedicated to a cat we loved and miss because Buddha Cat called him Home.
In Memoriam Purrince Siddartha Henry/Heintje
Sometimes a friend passes and we feel sad. Other times a thunderbolt hits you through the heart in spite of distant warnings and previous illness. So it is with Purrince Siddartha Henry/Heintje.
We followed the joyful times he loved going out in his harness and enjoyed being outdoors, and we followed the trials and struggles of the illness that finally overcame him.
His vibrant and playful spirit came across in the blog posts we all loved to read. We smiled, we laughed at his mischief and we worried when he took a turn for the worst. People were always ready with an encouraging word, a gift, and helpful advice for their beloved friend.
When a vet recommended the Purrince be sent over the Bridge his mum refused and fought on for him for many months. We could sense his LadyMum was profoundly distressed at the suggestion so many rallied round to give her strength and encouragement.
Sweet Prince, you will be missed by your LadyMum, by us here at Dash Kitten, and hundreds of friends scattered around the world. The Meezers and Terriersitical Woofs have done some splendid tribute images.
We finish our In Memoriam with a quote from Hamlet by British playwright William Shakespeare. It is spoken by Hamlet’s best friend Horatio.
“Now cracks a noble heart. – Good night, sweet prince, And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!”
Farewell Siddartha Henry.
Please visit his LadyMum here to offer love and encouragement in her time of great grief.
