He's Back

The spirit kitty of Roscoe, VC

Since Roscoe went to the Rainbow Bridge in September our family has been sad and taking baby steps in the loss of not having him here with us. The day Roscoe left for the bridge a kitty appeared at our house and stops by for visits from time to time. With this being a holiday weekend and remembering those we love that are here with us and those that have gone away there was that hurt feeling the heart gets when you miss someone. The visiting kitty must know when we are feeling especially sad as he shows up at our place. Seeing him makes moth, mom of the house, perk up as she thinks that VC, visiting kitty, is letting us know that Roscoe is fine and doesn't want us to feel sad. She especially enjoys watching VC as he looks so much like Roscoe seeing him cheers her up.

Roscoe last summer enjoying some time out on the patio.

Don't you think VC and Roscoe look a lot alike?

VC squinting his eyes to keep the sunshine out of his eyes.

Roscoe showing how his eyes looks when they are partially closed.

Moth thinks that VC could be a brother of Opus and Roscoe. What do you think? She also thinks VC is here to cheer her up. I don't like the idea of another kitty but if it makes her happy why not I say. I guess to keep her happy his visits will be welcome ones.

We all love and miss you Roscoe, we will never forget you and will always love you. You will always be a part of our lives.

Do any of you have an idea for a name for him? I think VC is pretty stupid if you ask me. He won't be living with us because we are pretty sure he has another home but moth would like to have a name to call him when he is visiting.

Oh! Roscoe Jr., that should be a name? Well, I'll tell him Roscoe Jr. anyways ;)

Shadow--like in Roscoe's shadow. Angel (for girl or boy). It's so nice of the kitty to come by and help you feel better.

love & wags,

Certainly looks a lot like Roscoe. Is it a girl or a boy? If it is a girl, how about Rosy? If it is a boy, then RJ (Roscoe Junior)?

So nice of the kitty to come by and visit.

I think that VC there to comfort you. Who knows?

We thinks it's lovely that VC visits when you are feeling sad about Roscoe. Maybe you could find out where he lives and get his real name? We think he looks like a Sam (a samaritan who helps out those he finds who are in need)

We think Gypsy would be a good name since you think he/she has a home and just likes to roam. ~S,S & C

VC IS A BOY KITTY, moth can tell. Some of you wanted to know that information I forgot to mention it.

Daisy said...

Oh wow, he really does look like Roscoe! I'll bet he is there to help comfort you. Cats know these things.

Nomi said...

There is certainly a resemblance. As for a name, I don't really know. As the title of your post is Sassy, hows about Sass ? That should fit a mancat nicely.

He sure does look like Roscoe! You could call him Spirit. We sure hope he has a home... but if not he'd probably stick around more and try to sneak into yours, hahahahahaha
No coincidence that he'd show up right now! It's Roscoe, sending you comfort from beyond the bridge.
You could call him Hermes - like the herald of the Greek gods, bringer of good news...

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Like your header ++ - very seasonal.

Let us know more about VC as he comes around. Does he pester you?

Islay said...

Oh - I had to do a double-take! I wonder if he's as fun at parties?

The World of Kitty is a wonderful and mysterious place.

So of course VC is connected to Roscoe, and comes to ease your loss.

It makes me smile to see this!

He really does look a lot like Roscoe! I wonderful he is a distance brother? You know we came from a farm in northern Indiana. Maybe he is a cousin of ours?

Thanks for the photos! It is so nice to know that Roscoe is remembered.
