    OT: Could we have a Lupin Wake on Sunday? Everyone then (not now) post a favorite strip of Lupin or memory of him?

    In my case attempts at the former two usually lead to the latter.

    The long-neglected “official” BCN website includes a description of Lupin’s difficult early life. Poor kitty. But he was loved.

    Will this have any impact on the comic? TBD.

    It’s also a great place from which to look down on humans. That’s a natural thing for cats.

    I just read the news about Lupin from last night. I am so sorry, but I am sure he is with all the others who have gone on their way, and waiting for us to join them.

    What better memorial to the Cat of Adventure than to live on in BCN having more adventures. When Georgia adds Iggy to the strip he can join in just as he was beginning to IRL. Many, many hugs to the whole Dunn clan.

    This is a happy comic on a sad day. I’m sorry to hear about Lupin but he much joy he brought me in the comics. He also helped many of my high school students who’ve read the books and saw my calendars. Georgia and family, grieve as much as you need, grief is just love we continue to show to those we lost. I’ve lost two cats and still talk to them on a regular basis, I’ll never run out of love for them.

    Okay, I have to hang my head in shame. I just realized that Sophie has different colored eyes. I’m going to go stand in the corner now. Just for context, I’ve been following since right before Georgia moved to Go Comics. Sending love and prayers for comfort and a big virtual HUG

    A glooming peace this morning with it brings;

    The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:

    Go hence, and have no more talk of these sad things;

    For never was a cat of more mirth and splendor;

    Than Lupin, our Cat Of Adventure.

    Meanwhile, Back on the Nile

    Beatrixia: Elvis, I just came across a papyrus scroll from the time of King Catfu.

    Elvis-Anum: Let’s take it to our resident scholar, Violet-Ifa. I think she’s at the public library and coffee shop.

    At the Nile Library and Coffee Shop

    Violet-Ifa: Alright, it looks like this scroll is from King Catfu’s diary. It talks about the Great Pyramid. Apparently there was a proclamation issued by the Royal Carpenters at the summit of the pyramid.

    Enter Sophititi

    Sophititi: I remember hearing about from my great-grandmother. I would like to recreate that moment in her honor.

    Violet-Ifa: Alright. The words are right here in the scroll:

    My thoughts on Betty… She did not go to heaven. She is at the rainbow bridge taking care of all the animals until their owners come to get them. Rest easy Dunn family. Lupin is in good hands

    This is Georgia’s post from yesterday for any who missed it: "It is with a very heavy heart that I share some sad news. Lupin died this morning, shortly after breakfast.

    It was very quick. He’s had a great few weeks since his medicine was adjusted. He had been in good spirits, active. Breathing better, eating great, causing heck, and sleeping well. He had an appointment Friday morning to have new imaging and bloodwork, and I expected good news. He had a good day and night yesterday, and woke up excited for breakfast.

    I’m pretty sure he had a heart attack or maybe a stroke. It hit him quick, but he did not seem to be in pain. (A nurse in our family thinks this may have meant a stroke, which feels a bit like a blessing since he went so quick and without much suffering.) Just one moment he was himself, and then he was not, and then he was gone. Goldie and Iggy never left his side. Ryan and I were with him too.

    Even with four other cats, two children, and three pet rats, the house feels somehow empty without Lupin. He was a huge personality, it does not feel real yet.

    Lupin was a terrifically good bad best boy. He was strong and active, until this heart disease caught up to him the last few months. I’m incredibly grateful that medication restored his spirits and comfort, these past few weeks especially. Just yesterday he long-jumped over the last few steps and landed in the kitchen. He has been regularly knocking my phone to the floor to wake me, and everything off the island to demand dinner.

    There would be no ‘Breaking Cat News’ without Lupin. It all began when he knocked everything off a shelf and Elvis and Puck came running to investigate. I owe so much to him."Continued in comment below…

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ve been crying my eyes out for the last 30 minutes. I can relate to Lupin, because of him being deaf like me. He will be greatly missed. He always made my day better through your eyes, Georgia, as well as the other BCN crew. Hugs and prayers to the Dunn family. ❤️

    Lupin’s life was one well lived and well loved. BCN has always brightened my days since I first discovered it years ago. Even through some very dark times. I hope the outpouring of love here and on social media gives the Dunn household some measure of comfort, too.

    When we take these furry, fuzzy, feathery or scaly little creatures into our lives, we do so often with the knowledge that we’ll likely see them leave as well. We take this risk because, as Chief Seattle wrote, “if all the beasts were gone, man would die of a great loneliness of spirit”. So we let these ambassadors of nature live with us, care for them, see the world anew through their eyes, and let them leave tracks on our hearts. We call them “pets”, but if we’re being honest with ourselves, we know them to be family.

    .

    And when they leave us, it hurts. Of course it does. But we never truly lose them, because the tracks they left can’t ever fade; they’ve changed us, indelibly, making us a little more wild- a little more free- than we were before.
