RIP Bastet

Our cat, Bastet, lost his battle with health problems last week. He was a faithful companion to my wife when I was working nights. He was also a skilled hunter and all around funny guy. He was twelve years old but here is a photo of him hamming it up when he was young.

  1. May the Good Father comfort you and your family. It’s tough losing a fur buddy. Many of us have been there before and know how it feels. Prayers coming your way.

  2. I hope you and your wife were with him in the end. It isn’t easy to be with your furry friends when they pass, but it’s the least we can do.

  3. What a beautiful character! I share your grief as it also reminds me of my lost companions. Bastet was very lucky to have you in his life.

  4. Praying for comfort for your family, Hambone. Grieve as long as you need to and then your memories will bring you joy.

    Sorry, Hambone, I know the feeling…had to bury my cat just last weekend on our new property. He is under a tree that will we be the burial site of all of pets. RIP Bastet.

  6. I have 4 feral cats that hang around the porch for treats. I talk to them when I’m outside and my neighbors most likely think I’m crazy. You can get attached to them. Time will soften the hurt some but the memory goes on for a long time.

  7. Sorry for your loss. I have a young male cat similar to yours and almost called him Bast short for Bastet (egyptian cat) because he looks like one even though he is not. RIP Bastet. Have fun catching prey in heaven.

  8. Bastet took a piece of your heart with him and you have a piece of his heart. May your memories of him comfort you.

  9. That is a beautiful photo. My 20 year old cat, Slinky, died recently, sometimes I think I see her out of the corner of my eye. I hope your cat will visit.

    I’m sorry for your loss.

  10. I know the feeling hambone,lost my snowball after long illness recently and just like zonga, I see her frequently

  11. Had to let my Garfield go a year ago tommorrow. Now I come home and open the door with nobody to greet me. I feel for you my friend.

  12. My sister’s cat, Beesey, passed away yesterday. It’s a bad week for puddy tats, apparently. πŸ™

  13. Cats are so intelligent, intimate, and funny. There’s no other animal quite like them. RIP, Bastet.

  14. Hambone…all around funny guys will ALWAYS be missed…

    But…that sucks…for now.

  15. Nothing will ease the pain of loss, but time.
    My sincere condolences, Hambone.
    Rest in Peace Bastet.

    To add to your comment, they are fastidious animals, cleaning and grooming themselves constantly, and never smell bad unless they are sick or very old.

    And, all cats are athletically gifted. A couple of years ago a Florida Panther was videoed jumping across a 25 foot wide canal with one gigantic but graceful leap.

    Cats are also the most beautiful of all mammals, IMO.
