Medium Large

Natasha: 1993-2010

Posted in Uncategorized by cesco7 on December 27, 2010


An amazing, beautiful, warm, brilliant, friendly cat I was extremely fortunate to call family and friend. She was my constant companion for almost 18 years and I am happy I was able to share Christmas with her.

I miss her dearly and always will.

In her honor Medium Large will not run this week.

    Ces, I’m so sorry about your cat. I was lucky enough to live with a beautiful tortoiseshell kitty for 18 years, too. It sounds like Natasha had a very good life with you.

  2. DrBear said, on December 27, 2010 at 1:19 am

    Ces – cats do what they want, and she wanted to spend 18 years with you and make you happy. That’s rare for a cat. My sympathies – you were very fortunate to have her.

  3. Seattle Dave said, on December 27, 2010 at 1:30 am

    My deepest sympathy, Ces. Losing a kitty who’s been part of your life for that long is just awful.

  4. andy said, on December 27, 2010 at 3:21 am

    What a pretty looking cat.

    I’m so sorry, Ces.

  5. Mark said, on December 27, 2010 at 4:26 am

    My deepest sympathy for your loss.

  6. Brant Newman said, on December 27, 2010 at 5:35 am

    Very sorry for your loss.

    The ancient garden seems at night
    A deeper gloom to bear
    As if some silent shadow’s blight
    Were hov’ring in the air.

    With hidden griefs the grasses sway,
    Unable quite to word them–
    Remembering from yesterday
    The little paws that stirred them.

    We are so sorry for your loss. Natasha looks beautiful in that picture.

  9. Kirk House said, on December 27, 2010 at 7:38 am

    Looks like a terrific cat, a great companion. So very sorry… it’s devastating when the time comes. But no regrets for having been part of their lives.

  10. Grant said, on December 27, 2010 at 7:51 am

    I just lost my 17 year old friend and cat in October and still miss her very much. It takes a long time to feel better and you will probably always feel the void her absence leaves. It does get easier to turn the sadness into good memories, though it takes time.

    I’m sorry for your loss.

    Hang in there.

  11. Jacob Singer said, on December 27, 2010 at 8:59 am

    I have 3 great cats of my own, one of which has been attached to me like no pet I’ve ever had. Condolences.

  12. Chaim Mattis Keller said, on December 27, 2010 at 9:19 am

    My sympathies on the loss of your cat.

  13. Leslie said, on December 27, 2010 at 9:23 am

    I am so sorry for your loss. My furry ones are near and dear to my heart.

  14. Otto Funke said, on December 27, 2010 at 9:55 am

    True companions, whatever the species, are rare to come by. My sorrow from the loss of past cat companions has mellowed into warm and treasured memories. These feelings help me appreciate my current cat companion all that much more.

    You have my sympathy and condolances.

  15. Ryan said, on December 27, 2010 at 9:57 am

    Truly sorry for your loss… it’s so hard to lose a friend like that.

  16. cesco7 said, on December 27, 2010 at 9:59 am

    Thank you very much for all your kind, thoughtful messages, everyone. It truly does help.

  17. Jimmy Joe said, on December 27, 2010 at 10:19 am

    Ces, so sorry for your loss. Please take care of yourself and the others you love.

  18. Franc said, on December 27, 2010 at 10:32 am

    Sorry! The sad loss of your companion will slowly be replaced with memories that will bring happiness later. This, at least, I know to be true.

  19. John Smallberries said, on December 27, 2010 at 10:34 am

    When they have been part of your life for so long, it is never easy or quick to find a way to deal with the loss. It’s obvious she was well loved. My deepest sympathies.

  20. RockyCat said, on December 27, 2010 at 11:30 am

    My condolences.

  21. Paul1963 said, on December 27, 2010 at 11:53 am

    So sorry for your loss, Ces. She was a beautiful cat.
    I lost my cat over two years ago and I still miss him.

  22. Lacey said, on December 27, 2010 at 1:29 pm

    My condolences–so sad.

  23. Jim said, on December 27, 2010 at 1:33 pm

    So Sorry !!

  24. Todd said, on December 27, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I know how hard it is (we lost 2 beloved cat this year). You’ll be in our thoughts.

  25. Mackenzie said, on December 27, 2010 at 3:00 pm

    I’m so sorry.

  26. Tullia said, on December 27, 2010 at 3:01 pm

    My condolences as well. I had a beloved cat who died too young five years ago. I still miss him.

  27. cesco7 said, on December 27, 2010 at 3:27 pm

    Thank you, everyone.

  28. robinite said, on December 27, 2010 at 3:29 pm

    My condolences. I grew up in a house that always had at least one cat (but usually three at any given moment). Losing them is always painful, but the joy they bring while they’re around makes it worth it. In conclusion, I hope you feel up to getting a new kitty soon. Not as a replacement (b/c they are all unique), but as a new companion and source of awesome memories (kind of like Doctor Who’s companions, I guess).

  29. Mollyscribbles said, on December 27, 2010 at 3:35 pm

    I lost the cat I’d had since I was six a few years back, right before Christmas. Having it happen at this time of year certainly doesn’t help matters.

  30. LTrauth said, on December 27, 2010 at 4:10 pm

    Our sincere condolences. We lost our calico, Franny, just before Christmas this year. She was 14. We’re still lucky enough to have her sister, but we miss her very much and know what you’re going through. Your memories of her will be with you always!

  31. Bill the Splut said, on December 27, 2010 at 5:15 pm

    No one is truly gone if they are remembered fondly in your heart.

    My deepest sympathies. My 3 cats are like children to me.

  32. Judas Peckerwood said, on December 27, 2010 at 6:04 pm

    Condolences, Ces. Be well

  33. Mary Ellen said, on December 27, 2010 at 6:07 pm

    I’m so sorry. Natasha was a gorgeous kittycat.

  34. red4 said, on December 27, 2010 at 8:32 pm

    You were lucky to have her. I love cats (and dogs), but I’m allergic to cats. Still, I can’t help but cuddle them when they’re around me.

  35. J.Sherman said, on December 28, 2010 at 12:21 am

    My deepest sympathies. I’ve been there myself unfortunately.

  36. Mathew said, on December 28, 2010 at 1:53 am

    Condolences from Australia.

  37. m said, on December 28, 2010 at 2:12 am

    The thing that sucks about having an animal for so long is it’s only more time to get used to their presence. Losing a pet is never easy. Sorry for your loss.

  38. Woodrowfan said, on December 28, 2010 at 11:21 am

    I’m so sorry. what a sweet looking kitty.

  39. Paul Jones said, on December 28, 2010 at 11:25 am

    Man. That’s not good. My sympathies.

  40. Skeltometer said, on December 28, 2010 at 1:07 pm

    I enjoyed her work in the bathroom jones video – that was she, no?

    Sorry to hear of the loss of a beloved pet.

  41. doriette said, on December 28, 2010 at 4:29 pm

    Oh, Ces.

    I’m SO very sorry for your loss.

    Sending you warmth and affection, in this heartbreaking time.

    - Amanda

  42. cesco7 said, on December 28, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    These messages are of great help and deeply appreciated. Thank you all.

  43. Louise said, on December 28, 2010 at 6:41 pm

    Rest in peace, Natasha.

    My deepest condolences on the loss of your dear feline friend.

  44. Craig said, on December 28, 2010 at 7:43 pm

    I am so sorry for your loss. If it’s any consolation, the heartache does get better. It just takes a while to get from here to there.

  45. jessie said, on December 28, 2010 at 11:02 pm

    RIP, Natasha

    It’s never easy to lose a friend
    To see a life come to an end
    While your heart feels heavy, and your soul feels pained
    Focus not on the loss, but on the friendship that was gained

    Take care, Ces.

  46. Saavedra said, on December 29, 2010 at 2:41 pm

    I’m so sorry Ces. I’ve been there too. She looks like such a sweet kitty… I’m sure she had a wonderful life with you.

  47. Dave said, on December 29, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    Devastating news. Please accept sincere condolences from one who’s been there.

  48. Mountain Mama said, on December 29, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    I’m so sorry, Ces. She looks like she was a very sweet baby. I lost My Lord Chauncey about two and a half years ago. My new kitty is very sweet, but he’s not a replacement. There’ll always be a small space in my heart where Chauncey was and that’s how it’ll be for you. I hope with time a new kitty comes into your life to fill part of the hole. Sympathies and hugs to you.

  49. Craig M. said, on December 30, 2010 at 3:53 pm

    My sympathies, Ces.

  50. Joseph said, on December 31, 2010 at 10:17 am

    I lost my cat of over 11 years this year as well. She was my sweet girl and I miss her.

  51. Fred said, on January 1, 2011 at 3:52 pm

    I’ve been traveling, and just read the news on 1/1/11. My condolences, Ces, and may the new year bring you new blessings.

  52. LBD "Nytetrayn" said, on January 2, 2011 at 10:55 pm

    I’m terribly sorry for your loss; I lost a cat last year, myself, and I have another which appears to be the same kind as Natasha. I’d hate it if anything happened to her.

    I’m glad you got to spend the time you did with her, though.

    Maybe I’m not saying any of this right, but you do have my deepest condolences.

  53. Limpy said, on January 3, 2011 at 10:46 am

    Sorry about your loss. She seems to wear that crown with quiet dignity. Our perhaps surpressed rage, but either way, she was a beautiful cat.

  54. Chery Mayo said, on January 3, 2011 at 5:10 pm

    I am very sorry for the loss of your cat. She looked beautiful which I am sure she was. You were blessed to have her for so many years and I can’t imagine how difficult her loss is for you. Just be assured that she is still with you and always will be. Mustering up all the prayers and blessings I can to send your way at this very sad time.

  55. Laura said, on January 4, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    If I should ever leave you whom I love
    To go along the Silent Way,
    Grieve not,
    Nor speak of me with tears,
    But laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you there.

    ( I’d come – I’d come, could I but find a way!
    But would not tears and grief be barriers? )
    And when you hear a song
    Or see a bird I loved,
    Please do not let the thought of me be sad…
    For I am loving you just as I always have…
    You were so good to me!

    There are so many things I wanted still to do –
    So many things to say to you…
    Remember that I did not fear…
    It was Just leaving you that was so hard to face…
    We cannot see Beyond…
    But this I know:
    I love you so –
    ’twas heaven here with you!

    I’m so sorry. Losing a little cat is so hard–I still miss my first two kitties who died at ages 12 & 18 respectively. Natasha looks like such a sweet cat.

  57. HMM2 said, on January 6, 2011 at 4:45 pm

    Condolences. I can imagine what you’re feeling.

  58. cephyn said, on January 6, 2011 at 6:59 pm

    My condolences Ces.

  59. Joel said, on January 6, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    So sorry to hear this – may your memories of her burn as bright as the stars.

  60. janesay said, on January 6, 2011 at 9:16 pm

    So sorry. Its hard to lose your best friend like that.

  61. aravind said, on January 11, 2011 at 1:02 am

    I’m so sorry. I haven’t the foggiest idea what I can say that might help. I had a cat who looked quite a bit like that almost five years ago who died. I stayed with her the whole night before, when she couldn’t even move anymore.

    It gets better, but so painfully slowly.

  62. Joyce Jackson said, on January 18, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    So sorry, Ces. I just lost my tortie, Blinky, in December as well. She was the same age as Natasha, and I think I know how you feel. So tiny and grumpy, they’re just irreplaceable. Hope you’re feeling a little better.

  63. Jamie said, on January 24, 2011 at 11:49 pm

    We got our cat the same year. He died a few weeks ago. I feel ya, Ces. My deepest condolences.

  64. Muffaroo said, on February 26, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    Our Natasha made it to 16 before kidney problems brought her to the end. Sorry you lost your little one, dude.
