Flip Friday for Scottie

It's been a bit of a rough week here.  I didn't feel much like writing on Wednesday, so I didn't.  If you've been keeping up with the Chick's blog, though, you already know why.  Our sweet Scottie Cat is preparing to head to Sparkle Pond to be with his friends, Ernie, Jobie, and Rosie.

It's a difficult thing to watch Scottie winding down, yet we feel as privileged to be a part of this process with Scottie as we have been to have been a part of his life.  Whatever it is that is wrong with him just felt like it happened so fast.  We had the impression that he would go on for many more years, and instead, he suddenly just decided that he is tired and he's ready to move on to something else. 

We don't know how much time we have left with Scottie, so we are just trying our best to balance our need to smother him with love and kisses with his need to have his own space.  We are trying to be respectful of his process.  It's not easy.

In his honor, Zoe and Blueberry would like to feature Scottie in today's movies.  It's a montage of a few different movies of Scottie.  A couple of the clips were filmed recently, as recently as over the last week or so.  Even though he's not feeling well, he still exudes the same handsomeness and distinguished look as he always has.

Our dear Scottie.  We love him so much.

LOVE the movie. Thank those Rabbits for me, will you? Scottie is very handsome, and I adore his special moments with Zoe. I see the other Cats couldn't quite keep out of the movies however. Of course.

Best wishes to everyone at the Lilypad at this time xo

Loved Scottie grooming Zoe at the end. Unbelievably touching.

Bless you, Scottie, and bless you, Marcy and Christine, as well.
