Today a dear friend of Circadian Creative has passed away. This friend is Juliet of The Grannies. Juliet is a 22 year old cat and when she and her sister Kate were rescued from a shelter in 2010 things were about to change for senior pets everywhere.
The very kind person who rescued Juliet and Kate decided to publish their story on Facebook. Their page quickly grew in popularity as so many people were warmed by Juliet and Kate’s sad story. Today the page has over 5000 fans. During the past year and half their story has translated into a community of people working to save abandoned senior cats and dogs from certain death as so many seem to be given up by their owners and put into shelters that will eventually euthanize them. The person who rescued and cared for Juliet and Kate in their final months has founded an organization dedicated to the cause of abandoned pets, and seniors in particular. A year ago we mourned the loss of Kate on March 25th 2011. Juliet passed away earlier today, March 24th 2012. Since this is a Leap Year they passed away exactly one year apart.
During Circadian Creative 2010-11. I designed a logo for the Grannies Facebook page and ever since I’ve been following Juliet and Kate and the cause for abandoned senior pets. One thing that Juliet loved was sitting at the window and gazing out into the yard at the garden. In particular she loved the bumble bees that buzzed around the flowers. This was a trade mark of Juliet and was often the topic of her daily posts. So in honor of Juliet and the difference she has made in the world I offer this Bumbly Bee as today’s daily design. Rest in peace Juliet.
