Sunday Selfies And Some Really Bad News


Sunday salutations pawesome pals



Dudes and Dudettes we've got some really bad news and we've got some even wurse news.

Purrlease sit down if mew're not already.

I Basil, was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer and sadly there is no treatment - though we have been trying all sorts of things to try to treat it and abate the symptoms but sadly we've come to the end of the road and have run out of options.

There's no where else to go and we've had to face the facts that my time in this realm is not long, and it grieves me so much to flop this awful news on mew today. Though really, there is neffur a right time fur such things to be announced is there?

We've had a lot of tears of frustration at BB HQ offur the last few weeks trying to get me some extra time, and we've had a lot of tears about my pending departure. Know that I have been exceptionally stalwart and fought like a demon to beat this bass turd thing, but unfortunately not even I, Bionic Basil can beat this one.

I am almost at the end of my journey, though in all honesty I'm not ready to go but obviously the big dude up there OTRB has other plans fur me, mew don't know how I wish I had more time... the P.A. and Dad and my fursibs are beyond distraught, though I keep trying to comfort them.

And yes that's why mew haven't seen us much lately around the blog'o'sphere, now mew know why.

There's not much else to say other than I'll be here fur as along as I can be and I'm sorry fur being the bearer of such bad news today.


Yours fureffur purring

Basil xox

  20. Dear Cathrine, Basil and the Family,

    I am devastated to hear your news, but I know your mum will have fought with every weapon at her (and your) disposal to try and make you well. We love you, we do not want you to go. This stuff happens doesn't it and our hearts break over because we love and lose the precious friends who mean the world to us.

    We are all meant to live forever aren't we. Stay as long as you feel you can, you know your Mum's heart will shatter into small pieces and ours will join hers in the dust.We are never ready but we will do our best to be strong for your family.

  21. The only bad thing about reading pet blogs is that you fall in love with all the cats and dogs, and when it is their time to go over the rainbow bridge, you feel almost as bad as if you lost your own furbaby. Hugs to you Basil - you will be cured on the other side and all will be well again. Please find Siddhartha Henry and hug him too, poor thing. And hugs to your family, both two and four legged. They will miss you terribly.

  29. Basil, my friend, the "Preview" function swallowed my lengthy comment but I'm hoping you were able to read it via your superior feline powers. I'm upset by this latest inexcusable failure of technology, but that's beside the point: I'm deeply saddened to learn you'll be leaving us soon. You're a great guy, Basil! I love you and I'll miss you very much. You've had a good innings and you've made countless Earthlings very happy via your advice and wisdom, in addition to your courageous demonstrations of valor and your wonderful friendship. Good-bye, dear one, until we meet again! ((((Basil))))

  39. I don't know what to say. As you know, I've always felt a special connection to Basil (even more so after I started saying his name right!). I put off reading this because I wanted to stay in my cocoon where I can ignore things that make me sad. I finally realized that you don't have that luxury so I'd fearlessly offer my friendship, love, and everything else I have to try to be there for you. Devastated doesn't even cover how I'm feeling. And I can't say I put anything past the B Team, when they are really motivated :)

She always is so happy and smiley when she sees your precious heart-shaped nose, and after we read your book, we just knew you were indestructible. Mau has left you a comment at Cat Scouts in the Quiet Room and a bunch of S'mores at Campfire. This just cannot be happening! Know that we love, love, love you and will forever and ever. Our angel fursibs will be waiting for you with open paws and hugs, but we pray that you will have longer with all of us. Sending lots of prayers, purrsa nd POTP.
