goodbye sweet Daniel

 My beautiful Daniel striped tiger left us on Tuesday after losing his battle with diabetes. He was only 12 years old and the light of our household. He and his brother Blase were born in our laundry room in 1998, while we were awaiting the arrival of Hurricaine Georges. All the kittehs used to love to cuddle with him; they are having to regroup now. He leaves behind his mother and his brother. We will always love you Daniel!

Kolbe left us last year

Daniel Striped Tiger from Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood
I loved him ever since I was little, and got to 'meet' him in person
at our local PBS affiliate when I was in high school
My Daniel is named after him :)
(he always knew when it was tuna-time,
even without the wristwatch!)

"Daniel Striped Tiger is a shy young tiger who became tame
 when he learned not to bite anything but his food.
 He enjoys all the things that most children like,
so long as they aren't too scary"

Daniel and Dominica
he always liked to take his half out of the middle

  1. I'm so sorry you lost your friend!

  2. My heart goes out to you. I know what it is like to lose a beloved pet. When Baui died, I cried for a week. I adopted the little dachshund man on the anniversary of my mother's death. When he died, I was crushed. You are in my prayers.

  3. I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my buddy 9 years ago and I still think of him everyday.
