Bellatrix Peepingston

posted in: Uncategorized | 0


Bellatrix Peepingston was a Siamese if you don’t please. She was a royal lady who was the epitome of grace, class and pretty. She was a lover of the arts, pied-à-terre (of which she owned many) and catnip. She developed a grudging affection for Max II. She will be rejoining Max I to continue their project, Our Man Max but will go onto continue her solo work, Bella in a Sidecar. She enjoyed wearing my shoes and would refer to me as “Lady” but eventually as “Wet Food Provider”. It is my fondest hope that she will continue to guide me as a Life Coach and Spirit Animal.

Her final days were spent in seclusion on the counter next to our herb garden which was very warm and comfortable with shirts of Jow’s for her to nest in. Room service with her favorite catnip mice, broths and fresh water were provided by her favorite servants.

She went out the way she would have wanted to – with the handsomest vet in the office, a pillow of antique lace and fresh picked lavender by our incredibly sweet friend, Karen who worked in the office. It was a quiet dignified affair and she will be missed greatly by myself and Joseph. Repast was generously hostessed by MamaFran at Seasons 52 for the chief mourners.

If you would like to honor her memory, we recommend contemplating her most famous adage, “Be more pretty.” We would love pictures and thoughts on how you will make that part of your day today.
