Greek’s 40th Days Leaving Us Behind

40 days ago our dear cat lady, Greek went across the bridge and today we are remembering her being part of us.

 

She was such a beauty, dignity yet rebel and free soul. Oh yeah, free soul she was! She would hunt anytime she wanted and brought the hunted to us as gifts: grasshopper, flies, dragonflies, lizard, birds name it she would be proud of her hunting skill.

 

Once we had a guest with one teenager who was trying to protect the hunted bird – the bird was still alive, very weak and desperate – our guest freed the bird and Greek was in rage! She didn’t attack but she wouldn’t stop wandering around the house shouting until my Mother took the tiny cat to her hugs. She was calming in my mother’s hands.

 

Greek was such a love to all of us. Everybody poured her with abundant love and care. My Brother would always ask “Where is Greek?” everytime he visited my mom. My nephews and nieces would have the same question.

 

But Greek wouldn’t love children. She was scared of those rascals’ shouting and cheering and jumping and being too excited. Then she would stay away the whole day giving up the food. She would be back when all those kids were gone. My mom would be worried….

 

Greek was an alarm clock for my Mother. She would wake her up especially for night prayer. She would kiss my Mother to wake her up. Failed with kisses, she would scratch my mother’s body. Failed with the scratches, she would step on my mother’s head with her soft meows. My mother would prepare food and pray accompanied by the tiny alarm clock.

 

Greek was also great sleeper. She would sleep when the rest of us worked!

 

And a great eater…. Pick great eater! She didn’t take not fresh food. All of her food must be fresh from the storage. She would not eat her own leftover. All must be new! And new it was for our beloved princess Greek.

 

Greek, too many things we save in our memory about her.

 

You are loved. You are remembered.

 

We know you leave us as you wished. You made the decision and we just felt the broken heart to say goodbye.

 

Greek, your graveyard is just some steps from our backdoor. We can visit you whenever we want. We first got so sad but you always came once in while making sure that we are ok and we now realize that you were leaving clean and happy.

 

Please send our loving regards to Bob, Grace, Greece, Greg, and all other beloved animals you meet and greet there across the rainbow bridge.

 

Please cut your worry. We are praying for your good. Please pray for us, too.

Now your friends are sitting in our porch Everyday but they don’t want to stay home like you. They come to have meal and sleep somewhere we don’t know. Please make sure they are fine, our angel…..

 

Greek, this is your 40th days leaving us. You will be our guiding light, won’t you?

Till we meet again, my dear. Love you soooooooo much!!! Warm regards from me, Ibu, Mbak Andri, Mbak Yuda, Mas Yogi and all…. The rainbow slides are ready….! Woohooo!

Chanting Prayer – To Moppy, the Sweet Dog

Don’t give up. There is always a way to make a way…. If your hands and feet are in long distance from what you are capable of doing, then chant.

Chant the song of love to the one you want to reach with help.
The limitation is like a chain but prayer push out all boundaries.

I believe in the power of healing. I believe in the power of medication
I believe in the power of care. And, I believe in the power of love.

Asy-Syifaa means the one who cures
And I believe that the Asy-Syifa hears all my chant of prayers for the cure for Moppy.

So, let’s chant that sacred name.

Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa
Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa

Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa
Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa
Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa
Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa
Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa
Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa
Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa Yaa Syifaa

Yaa Syifaa…..

Cure.
