Dear Little Rembrandt


I mentioned two months ago that our dear little Rembrandt, the kitty who entertained us on Karen's blog Sew Primitive, had found a home. Many of us were concerned about Karen's cats after she passed away and so we were gratified to know that they had been adopted by new families. Well, about two weeks ago I received the sweetest email from Sandi in Atlanta letting me know that Rembrandt now resides with her family! Sandi doesn't have a blog, but she read Karen's blog and she reads mine, and maybe yours! She said she enjoys seeing Rembrandt's picture on the side of my blog and that Rembrandt is being loved by her family in her new surroundings. Rembrandt has always been a little skittery and so Sandi sees her zipping from one hiding place to another as she becomes familiar with the house and the hiding places. She also comes out for food and affection. Good to know! I imagine she is getting to know the children, but Sandi says she hasn't quite warmed up to the dog! Karen's house was very quiet, as you might imagine. Filled with fabric and art supplies, it was Karen's own little den of creativity. I can't believe Karen has been gone almost three months. I miss her every day. I often go back to her blog and read old posts from when she was healthy and productive and funny! How nice to have that available at my finger tips. I am so touched that Sandi would contact me and assure me that Rembrandt is being loved and cared for. That was such a concern of mine. I know Karen would be pleased to know that Rembrandt is in a loving home. And now I have made a new friend online as well! Thank you Sandi! 

Ever the artist, Karen had rooms dedicated to her many endeavors. 
Thanks for stopping by!

That was so thoughtful of Sandi to write you an email. It must be nice to know that he is so well-cared for.

I never knew Karen in person, but we did chat through email and I really do miss reading her blog. She was a woman of great talent. I am sure she is missed by all whose lives she touched in some way.

Thank you for sharing this with us.

Such a sweet, loving post, Marcie. My heart always breaks for our furbabies that are left behind; hence I am always so relieved when the pets are welcomed into new loving homes.

Oh, I am so happy to hear about this wonderful little cat! Thank you, Sandi..and thank you dear Marcie.

However, if Rembrandt is up to some of the unusual and rather mischievous antics, Sandi may have to create a cat blog ;

That is sweet. Thanks for passing the news on.

Karen said...

You never know who you will meet via your blog. Thank you for letting us know about Rembrandt.

Thank you so much for filling us in on Rembrandt's situation Marcie. I did worry about what would become of her precious fur-babies, and I'm thrilled to know they're bringing joy to their new families. Karen would be smiling down on them, for certain.
*hugs*

I can't thank you enough for posting about Rembrandt - I found Karen's blog several years ago and followed her and then her adventures with Rembrandt. She is definitely missed and I too was wondering about Rembrandt and hoping that she had found a good home which it appear to be. I have a speciall fondess for Tortoise Shell cats as I had two Tortie sisters - sadly one passed away last year - Lulu - who reminded me of Rembrandt - both in looks and in naughtiness. Thank you again and thank you also for your blog - have been following your blog for several years also.

Thanks for sharing this update on Rembrandt. I'm so happy he has a good home. I've gone back and read Karen's posts, too. It's nice to be able to do that.
