    • I agree Michael it made me sad but there again anything with such simplistic beauty and innocence always does that to me.

      Thank you for making such a beautiful video and Marc for being so utterly devoted to your cats and their happiness.

      • I completely agree. It is the “simplistic beauty” that makes me sad not the loss of Red or a moment gone for ever. I believe that we are sad at the sight of this sort of beauty because we crave it and so seldom receive it.

    • Thanks Dee – they loved each other so much and so did I. We were like a little very happy family for a time. I will always treasure those memories.

      Funnily enough I just visited Red’s grave this evening. It was dark and the ground all white with snow – totally different to before. I put him in a beautiful place considering where i am living and right where his cat mother and grandmother roam everyday so I don’t feel like I left him alone either. Those are the things that matter – and that I can visit him.

  1. Michael its great – totally nice – although I am at work so no sound but that suits me too 🙂 Red was a bit younger there on his trampoline. He loved the leaves in fall and I would flick them all over the trampoline and stick my hand under the border thingy and grab his little feet before he could get away of thwack the hand monster 🙂 I like that you put lilly on the train and then them together. It tells a story. She needed a couple weeks to calm down after the journey and then she and Red fell totally in love with eachother. They would go together on evening walks (like Marvin and Daisy maybe?) together like a couple, slowly stopping to look at things and then playing and chasing eachother. She’s come home early and he’d stay out. My upstairs neighbour was fascinated with their friendship and would come down to hasng out with them. She would tell me how wonderful she thought they were as a pair and she was very sad when I told her Red died.
    It’s a little like a story the movie starting with her journey 🙂 I like it, thank you Michael.

  2. Beautifully done. And you are right, who cares? It is beautiful. I picture Red taking one of those fallen leaves up to Marc’s pillow as a token of his love.

    I can stand for an hour watching Yellow cat groom her beloved Shadow. Never reciprocated, but always appreciated by him I’m sure. How could he not?

    As for envying the relationships cats have, it is sort of a live and let live. I see Shadow get grumpy now and then, and he takes it out on Yellow with a swat. She just moves out of reach and waits for him to get a better attitude. Then all is well again. No one argues. It just is what it is.

    We could learn from that.

  3. Such beautiful cats and your love of them is obvious Marc.
    This reminds me of a saying I heard many years ago, I can’t remember now who wrote it
    ‘If you can win a cat’s friendship, you have something to boast about’
