Farewell Sasquatch




I carouse all night in moonlit fields
- Cho-Yong

This morning I brought home Sasquatch's body from way up the road where he had been killed by a car. This afternoon I finally buried him near his little sister Yowie. It's been a very sad day here at the Mad Bush Farm. The time that Sasquatch was with us was probably the most hilarious year we have ever had. Who ever thought the cute little white kitten we brought home would bring so many people so much joy and a lot of laughs to go with his larger than life personality. If he had been human I swear he would have been either an evil genius or the world's funniest comedian. Sasquatch was a real joy in my life. He was my best friend following me everywhere around the farm and at every opportunity he would claw me or bite me. I have the scars to prove it - not to mention a few photos as well of his claws and teeth in my arm. His evilness was not without a loving side. He would spent all day with me - no matter what I was doing Sasquatch was always supervising. Where I sat he would sit whenever I vacated the space. If I was at the computer Sasquatch would be on my lap attempting to bite my arm while I was typing. He was the biggest torment I have ever met, his teeth were sharp and so were his claws. I still recall the time when the bull was out, and the Terrorist as well and there was me running out side with Sasquatch still attached to my leg trying to bite me. I mean come on..this cat was mad and he was bad and he was just a few months old. His little sister Yowie as we know was sadly was killed on the road at just 5 months old and like Sasquatch she brought a lot of joy into our families lives. I gave our vet the sad news this morning and like me they were upset as well. We won't be able to replace Sasquatch or Yowie - but what we can do is make the best of a bad situation and remember all those hilarious times we had with those two amazing kitties. Both stole my heart and got into my soul. It's quiet here without Sasquatch here causing Dream and Emerald piles of trouble. Around this time we usually have the afternoon cat brawl going on between Sasquatch vs Dream & Emerald tag team.

Sasquatch is buried near Yowie so he can rest in peace with his little sister close by. I've planted an olive tree on each of their graves to remind me of the everlasting joy they gave to me and my girls and of course we have thousands of photos as well. A huge thank you to my friends on Facebook for your support and to my wonderful blogger friends who have left me and my girls messages of suppoort. I started a blog for Sasquatch some time back and rather than leave it I have so many photos I might as well post one each day until we run out. I'll update it after this post so everyone can continue to enjoy those memories.

Love to you all
Liz, Inaya and Michelle

  2. I simply cannot put into words my sense of sorrow about this little cat. Liz, you have given us much mirth sharing with us the trials and tribulations of loving such a creature. You made us love him as well.
