Garbi, the secret chief in the animal shelter Strubeli is no longer on this planet. On 18th July 2012 the seventeen and a half year old cat walked over the rainbow bridge. Her time had come, the body was weak and her pajamas had become much to big for her. When time was ready, she was released from the Vet.
The staff of the shelter miss her a lot because Garbi was always in the middle of the happening. Most of the time she watched in the office that everything was correctly done. Of course she was cuddled by all of the staff and from the visitors when ever she let them.
The characterful cat hit me from time to time on my fingers to show me who was the boss. I understood and respected it.
Fresh and true to the motto: The queen is dead, long live the king, I believe Emil will become her successor. I know, some of you feel sorry for him. But you really don't have because look at him, Emil is a real happy cat and has everything he needs at the shelter. He's got humans, who love him dearly and cuddle him, he's got his freedom, his fields where he can chase mice (most of them he brings back to the shelter, somebody has to feed the other cats *LoL*), always a good filled food bowl, shelter and always a warm basket for a good nap. So really, he doesn't need your pitty, Emil is happy with his home at the shelter.
He even got mates who he could annoy or play. But Emil loves to follow his own business. Will he really become the next chief of the shelter? I don't know, but what I know is that Garbi will never ever been forgotten. What a cat she was!
Habt alle eine schöne zweite Wochenhälfte. / Have a nice time
