We were very shocked to learn of the sudden death of our dear friend, Sen-Chan. He was just a young mancat so full of love and life. 



I will remember him as a gentle, adventurous fella who knew when to have fun and when to take a long elegant nap. He will be greatly missed by #1, his brother Tom and baby sister Tama-Chan. He had graciously accepted Tama into his life and I admired his noble and calm demeanor.

I am posting this photo of me climbing a tree for my friend. He was an ardent explorer of the wilds. May we go on an adventure together, Sen-Chan, when we meet at the Bridge.

We are sorry to hear about your friend. He sounds like a lovely kitty. Maybe you can introduce us when we are all at the Bridge together.

((hugs))

Isn't it sad? #1 said that it is a miracle that he lived so long and grew so strong given his horrible illness. I miss him very much! I hope we can all climb trees together when we meet again at the bridge.

I agree with Siena, in spite of his illness, he was the luckiest cat to have such wonderful friends and terrific mom.

Goldie, you look so man-catly and brave way up in that tree. We are sorry for the loss of Sen Chan.

Thank you, sweet Goldie, for such a lovely tribute to Sen-Chan. And for that beautiful tree-climbing photo! It is such a good thing that Sen-Chan got to climb trees (and even go up on the roof!) and run in the grass during his short life. I know that if he had met you in person, he would have come to you with open paws, as he did with everyone.

A very sad #1

Hi Goldie. Thank you for that lovely tribute to Sen-Chan and that great tree-climbing photo of yourself. Meowy is all leaky-eyed thinking about how #1 must be missing her dear little mancat.

This is a lovely tribute to darling Sen-Chan. We were so sorry to read of his passing, it was such a shock. Climbing a tree for your adventurous friend is a wonderful way to honour him.

Goldie that is just a lovely thing for sen-Chan.
It is always very sad when our loved ones pass, but more so when it was so sudden, it still does not feel real.
We saw an age old wisdom in Handsome Sen-Chan and are syure that it was need fo higher purposes.
We are very sad for his family and that we will not see his furrs, but we are glad that he never suffered and know that his presence will be felt in a huge way with his new life...
Face lickites to you Goldie and warm puurs for sen-Chans family
