Dove Sei Arcobaleno?

Where Are You Rainbow?
Today marks three months since Roscoe left us. With the holidays coming up, our house has been a bit sad. You see, Christmas was the day when Roscoe and Opus came into my life. To see his little Christmas stocking with his name written on it just breaks my heart. I never imagined that last Christmas was to be our last together.

This is a song that I came across just days after Roscoe passed away. It is by one of my favorite Italian artists, Zucchero, and it has a very special meaning to me. With the help of my husband, I have translated it into the English. I think the song (which is playing in the background) will speak for itself.

When I see a beautiful rainbow, the golden sun or a magical moon shining down at me from the sky, I always think of Ros.....


Tu lo sai

che non e’ la fine

Si’ che lo sai…….

Che viene maggio

E sciolgo le brine

Si’ che lo sai……


รจ Delicato


By Zucchero


You know it isn’t the end.
Yes, you know it...
That May comes
And melts the frost.
Yes, you know it...

Pieces of winter
lost in the wind.
I am not tired, no no
And I go searching for you
In a burgundy dream.

This heart
is scattered.
The world goes away.
This desperate heart
is delicate.

Where are you rainbow?
And what are you doing?
Wild honey, when I dream of you,
what are you doing?
In my heart,
between the nothing
and the farewell...

This heart
is scattered.
The world goes away.
This desperate heart
is delicate.

How much I miss you
In the universe
And in the center of the world.
How I look for you.
And I scream out loud
in the center of the world.

Only I,
I am able to find you.
Only I,
And I am on my knees,
Only I.
Can lift you up,
Only I,
How many moons?
Only I,
Can repair your heart,
Only I,


I am the shade,
And you, you are the sun.
Yeah, yeah,
How much I miss you!
Yeah, yeah,
And I scream out loud
Yeah, yeah,
In the center of the world!
My sun, answer me!

This heart is
scattered
and delicate
and it’s all there.



Cosi’ mi manchi.


Light a candle for Roscoe.

Beautiful post for sweet Roscoe. How loved he is and missed beyond words. There are days I cannot think his name without the tears coming. We are so fortunate for having Roscoe in our lives and in our family. He was Mr. Personality plus. I still cannot believe that he is not here where we can see and hear him. He is close to us always in our heart and thoughts.
Rest in peace sweet little funny face. We love you.

What a beautiful song. I wish I could say it gets easier but I don't think it does. I still miss my darling Whiskers especially at Christmas, which is when he came into my life. ~Alasandra

We liked the song too and we are purring for everyone. ~S,S & C

Purrs and headbumps to you Miss Cyn. That was a lovely song.

Roscoe will always be part of us, forever and ever. We were blessed to have known him - but we so understand that sometimes the yearning for his physical body - to touch, to see, to smell, to feel him one more time - can be overwhelming.
In those moments you and your human have to support each other. And think of all of your friends, always purring for you!

Roscoe is never far from my thoughts. Thought we were many miles apart he was in my life every day. I miss him a lot too and will always love sweet Roscoe.
