In Memoriam of Piru

Hello, Prince here.  It's been a whole week since Piru crossed OTRB.  The family is still very sad, specially Mom, and we all miss him very much.  Neither Mom, nor The Other One, has been in the mood to write in the blog, so I volunteered to do it.
Pirulo Furry (2002-2011)

I think that the most special characteristic that my brother Piru had is that he was always a happy and affectionate cat.  So, I think that we should remember him that way.  Today, I'm going to share with you the last pictures and the last two videos of him.  I hope you can enjoy viewing his happy last days.

You know how Piru was always saying that he was not fat, just a husky boy.  Well, he decided to start an exercise regiment to demonstrate he was as fit as anyone else.  His favorite exercise was this one:

Of course, after an exercise routine, what's better than a good nap?

Can you burn calories while napping?
Another thing that Piru used to hate was to be brushed.  Is not really that he hated that, he loved it only if it was on his head and neck.  But Mom always wanted to brush aaaaaalllllll his body and that he couldn't stand.  But, this time he decided to give Mom the pleasure of brushing him in her lap.  He complained a couple of times, but Mom did it with caution.

First the head.
Then, the neck.
Look how fluffy he is.
He love if at the back of his ears.
A brushed Piru.
He seems so happy to be in Mom's lap.

Here's a movie of the whole process.  If you turn on your speakers you can hear his purrs and his meaws when Mom tried to brush his tail.

The family want to thank with all our hearts all the messages that Piru's friends have been sending us through the blog and the Twitter account.  We also want to thank Max, MarioRumbles and Ty for their posts about Piru on each one of their blogs to remember my brother.  We are very thankful of Brian and The Cat Blogosphere for the beautiful image prepared In Memoriam of Piru (the one on the right margin). To all Piru's friends and to all the others that never met Piru, but stop for a moment to send us their condolences, purrrrs, smoooches and blessings, thank you very much.

We are not still sure what will happen with Piru's blog.  But we'll tell you as soon as we take a decision.

To end this post, I want to publish a little letter that I found one morning at my side.  It's a good bye letter from Piru to Mom.

My beloved Mom:

I want to tell you that I love you very much.  You have been the best Mom a cat can have.  I know you love me from the very first time you saw me, and I have been loving you from the very same moment.  I'm so very grateful of all warm cares you have given me my entire life.  Thank you for never giving me up, even in difficult times like when I broke one of my legs, when I was terribly ill or even the time I was lost for three days.  Thank you for always trying to please me by building all the fun parks (7), even though I loved to hang out freely; I know you did all that to protect me.  I know that, sometimes, I was a grumpy little boy when I wanted to go out and peed some of the furniture; but, you didn't stop loving me.  That's why you were always my favorite person in the whole world, that's why I loved to sleep in your bed and sit at your side every night to watch TV.  I know that my sudden departure have been very difficult for you.  I wasn't planning on doing so, but it was something that I couldn't control.  I want you to know that I left in peace and with you in my heart.  I don't want you to suffer for my absence any more, but to always remember the good times we had together.  Remember that I always looked up to you as my protector and that I loved been loved by you.  Remember me as the one that brought you many days of happiness with my witty catonality and my very handsome presence.  Please, never forget me.  Mom, everything is going to be okey- =^..^= Ola kala!
I love you.  Pirulo

Piru died today

Several hours ago my beloved companion Piru has died. He went to sleep this morning and never woke up. He was 8 and a half years old. We had a simple funeral at home with family members that loved him very much. We will surely miss him. We had a special bond that will last forever because, when you lose someone you love so much, the love stays the same although they are not physically present.

Sometime we will post his last video with me (Mom) and the last pictures we took of him, just days ago.

It's Too Interesting to be Missed: 7 Billion People

I was rambling through the Internet and found this very-very interesting video, from National Geographic,  about Earth's population.  You should watch this:

If you can't watch it here, go to this link:

I wonder how many pets there are in the world.

Ola kala!

Tutorial: "How to Take a Bath" (Dog Version), by Liah

Hello, Piru's friends.  As you know, I'm Liah, Piru's sister.  I'm the house's Princess, but even that privilege position doesn't free me from frecuently baths.  So, today, I'll share with you the bath process, my version.

FIRST: You have to catch the unsuspected victim, I mean, me.

SECOND: You have to remember to not let the shampoo get into the eyes.

THIRD: Don't let water get into the ears either.

FOURTH: While bathing, say supporting words to your dog, been wet takes away some of our pride.

FIFTH: Begin the drying process with the face, please.

Are we done, yet?

SIXTH: With long hair, use the blower in the cool setting.

SEVENTH: Dry the entire coat, even behind ears.

Oh, I'm already tired.

A fluffier me!

See how my hair moves?  Feels like I'm brand new!
 Well, that's all.  Now, if you excuse me I have to sleep for the rest of the day.  This bath leave me exhausted.

Ola kala!
