Welcome to Roscoe's Wake

Today is Opus and Roscoe's birthday. It is also the third anniversary of Cat Naps in Italy. Their blog was a gift for their 10Th birthday. Our home is a sad one and we don't feel like celebrating, but we know that our little Roscoe would not want any of us to be sad. In honor of his thirteenth birthday, we are celebrating Roscoe's life.


Come on in, look through the photos and read through the posts. Take a moment to enjoy the music, each song was chosen special for Roscoe.

Friends are welcome to leave a comment or write a post. It can be a tribute, a favorite story, a poem, photo or whatever you feel like sharing. By remembering Roscoe, we keep him alive.

Oh Opus - I wasn't aware that it is also your third blogoversary. I haven't even started to read the wake post and I am already crying - silly me, Roscoe would not want this.
I can just see him and Anastasia sitting side by side, rolling their eyes about us.....
This is a beautiful memorial for Roscoe, I think over time we will all come back here once in a while and pay our tributes again and again.

Dennis will always think of Roscoe as a busy easygoing friendly guy. Dennis will never forget the photo of Roscoe in the pretty blue bath--he was definitely up to something there. Ready to play!


Dennis lost a brother once, his name was Larry, and it's amazing how much Dennis' new kitten is like Larry, only even friendlier. Eddy has finally helped to really heal the wound that Larry left back in Feb. 2004!

Dennis will always remember Roscoe.

We are crying for you Opus and ourselves cause we miss Roscoe so much. We are sure Roscoe is having a great time partying at the Rainbow Bridge with all our fur friends who have gone there.

This is a lovely tribute to Roscoe.

What a beautiful blog to remember Roscoe. We have been so busy with leaving town that we could not get a typist to get over here until now. Roscoe will be missed by so many. His adventures were always what has kept the blogosphere interesting!

Roscoe, we love you and will miss you, even though we can't think of a good memorial post for you. You made us smile lots and we'll always remember you. We hope that's enough. We'll keep Opus company too. *hugs Opus*
Purrrrrs,

Thinking about you today, had to visit this blog.
I love this memorial for sweet Roscoe.
I know he and all the others welcomed my Charlie Cat to the Bridge last month.
