Dino: Rainbow Bridge Day

It is the ninth anniversary of his Rainbow Bridge Day. We remember Dino with great fondness and love. He was the best of cats – friendly, happy, close confidante, and loyal littermate. Dino loved all things fresh, from cut-flowers to laundered clothes to Kona coffee to babies.

We were most privileged to have our Siamese boy for nearly 19 years. Every day was a good one with him. We miss you much.

Love you always,

A Rainbow Bridge Day

He loved the scent of fresh-cut flowers. The one scent Dino enjoyed the most was gardenia. When that plant bloomed, it was like he consumed all of its scent.

In summer, Dino enjoyed the greenhouse very much. The plants, the scents, were very intoxicating.

When July 18, 2008 came, we awoke very early as usual. Though his appetite had slipped away, his eyes were bright, clear and alert. It was his approval to say it was okay to say goodbye for now.

We miss our Siamese boy very much. Not only was he the best of friends, Dino was a very loving member of our family and confidant.

Love you always,

mom and dad

Caturday Memories

Today, we remember our handsome, sweet boy, Dino. He lived a full life, 18 years and 11 months, of lots of fun and play.

It may be seven years since his passing, but there are days when you expect to see Dino waiting for his breakfast. Yes, we miss Dino very much. We are glad to have had him as a good friend and family member.

Remembering Dino

Today, we mark the fifth anniversary of the passing of our handsome boy, Dino.


Dino was clearly the top cat in our household. He came to us as a six week old kitten, full of energy and lots of purring love. With his littermate, Pebbles, they were a tightly bonded pair of Siamese cats. They played many days together, usually capped by a game of chase. As a little kitten, Dino (more accurately, I) learned fast that most of the bed belonged to him when we slept.

Dino had a fondness for all things floral. The tropicals were his favorites. If Dino had a true favorite plant, it was the gardenia with its lush fragrance. When those plants wintered inside, he enjoyed walking among them in the laundry/utility room.



Needless to say, Dino could do anything what he wanted to do. Like taking breakfast in bed …


or, checking out a piece of luggage, preferably with fresh clothes …


Like any good cat, Dino had a special talent. He excelled in drinking water with his left paw.


While he knew how to drink water the “regular” way, Dino preferred doing so with his paw instead.

We were quite fortunate and privileged to have Dino with us for nearly 19 years. He was a very amiable, good-natured cat, and didn’t mind the camera too much.



Though Dino has been gone for five years, he’s remembered with the greatest affection along with Pebbles.

To our sweet boy, we’ll remember you always, and await for your familiar jump into bed every night at the end of those days that run very long.
