There are cats and then there was Skeezix...
One of the blogs that I try to keep up with is called The Cat Blogosphere. It is a great blog that keeps all the cat bloggers in touch with each other. They celebrate birthdays, Gotcha Days, Meow Like a Pirate day, and all sorts of fun events, but they also support the humans when someone (kitteh or human) has sickness, or goes to The Rainbow Bridge. It is not uncommon for the group to hold an on-line auction to help someone pay veterinary bills or arrange transport from a shelter to a new forever home for kittehs.
Several weeks ago I read on the CB website that Skeezix the Cat had surgery and they discovered that he had cancer. Every pet parent's worst nightmare - for you know your little friend's time on this earth is soon to come to an end.
Skeezix was one of the first cat blogs that I read and soon found that he was one of those "live life to the fullest" kind of cats - his "flat version" got to travel all around the world - I believe he even went to a royal wedding. He had an uncanny sense of fashion too - what a trail blazer. His Mum & Dad (Mr. Tasty Face and the Food Lady) were always willing to help those of us who were not quite techie enough to fix our blogger problems.
So my eyes were leaking tonight when I read that Skeezix has gone to The Rainbow Bridge and my heart aches for his "family". When another one of our furry friends goes to The Bridge, it reminds all of us of who we have and who we have lost. I hope there was a huge party to welcome him home. Shine bright, new star in the heavens.
