ODE TO AN EXCEPTIONAL CAT NAMED MARUSCHKA

Muschki August 2012 1 13 bis
Maruschka noun (mah-rOOsh-kah)
A.k.a. Muschki, Schmutzli, Bouboule, Panzerfaust, Munschi, Mon Chichi, Yammertante, Fresssack, Pissheraus, Big Eye Smith and Moumouli.

German name given to a female or to a sweet black cat born in April 1995 in Graubünden, Switzerland.
Died on the 24th of October 2012 in Geneva, Switzerland after suffering a few major strokes.
Lived a peaceful life surrounded by love and her family (Rosa, her mother, P., her father and Fridolin, her brother 1995-2011).
Maruschka, we already miss you dearly and will never forget your beautiful face, piercing sapphire-like yellow eyes, elegance, cuddliness, lush black coat, cuteness, calm temperament, deep guttural yowls, uniqueness and comic manners.

You were a joyful, brave and uncomplicated kitty with a strong willpower, a divine being with a golden soul who was sent to us by the Universe in order to make our life merrier and bring some much needed sunshine to our monotonous existence.

We wish to warmly thank you for all those wonderful years spent in your graceful company! Hopefully you received all the attention you deserved...

♥ ♥ ♥ Rest In Peace ♥ ♥ ♥

  34. Oh Rosa, I am so sorry for your loss. What a beautiful tribute to Maruschka. We lost our puppy a little more than a year ago. I can tell you from experience that after our fur babies have gone they never really leave your side. They continue to live in us and their spirit is all around. She was beautiful! Sending you a big hug.

    Les chats sont des êtres à part, incroyables, qui nous donnent tant,mais ça tu le sais déjà.

  36. So sorry to hear this - you have my deepest condolences. We lost our beloved Maine Coon cat, Sebastian, a few years ago, and still miss him. I'm more attached to people than animals, but it's interesting how a special animal can find an everlasting place in your heart. RIP, Marushka.

  37. quelle tristesse, je compatis de tout coeur même si je sais qu'aucun mot ne saura effacer la douleur de cette perte et ta peine. Je comprends d'autant mieux que j'avais un chat qui ressemblait à elle et qui a disparu un jour, sans jamais savoir ce qui lui était arrivé, elle s'appelait " Réglisse " je l'ai cherché partout en vain et j'ai mis très longtemps à me remettre de sa disparition. Plein de gros bisous pour toi pour apaiser ton chagrin :(. Elle veille de là-haut sur ses bien-aimés maîtres qui l'ont chéri j'en suis certaine ;)
