Monday Evening

This past Saturday and Sunday I learned of several kitties crossing over The Rainbow Bridge. Emil's family said their goodbyes. Beautiful Forrest went so suddenly. An author that I am a fan of and whose blog I visit quite often lost two kitties in a week's time, one to liver cancer and another to end stage renal failure. It is so heartbreaking to hear of all these furbabies passing away. Last night I lit a candle in rememberence of those kitties and for all who have gone on before.

I bought the kitty candle holder earlier this week just for such occasions. I sadly knew that saying goodbye to our beloved friends happens more often than anyone wants to think about. Please know that I am holding all who are mourning in my heart and thoughts.

I once again have a busy week, but I think it won't be too hectic. (I hope)
Toeshee has a V E T appointment Wednesday. He will be getting shots, an exam and they want a poo sample. (ick!) I guess they want to weigh him and make sure he's healthy before they snip snip. :)
I think I hear Cody snickering whenever I mention that Toeshee is getting his snip snip done. :) He and Cricket both need to vent about him and I hope to help them blog on House Panthers this week.

I hope everyone has a spot of sunshine to relax in this week, with a cool breeze and some free time to go with it. Take care and Big Hugs.

What a nice thought - I mean about the candle, not the snip, snip. Hee! Hee!

Seriously, thank you for remembering the kitties that have crossed the Bridge the last couple of weeks.

Dearest Lorianna! I will send Miss Billie a birthday card in tomorrows mail...so you can watch for it. She is such a special girl!
It is dreadful hot right now and we are dreaming of autumn...but coffee is tasting better each day now so that is good. Hot and iced kind!
I miss my cozy time with Peach as she insists on being on the patio 24~7. I go and nap with her and she snuggles with me but then I have a power failure in all that heat and have to come inside and ice down!
Always thinking about you and your gentle soul....Love both of usXOXOXO

I wish we never had to say goodbye to our friends. It always makes me feel so sad.

Hi, we were wondering if Billie wanted to join Floof & Fur (she certainly does qualify!)... if she does, or you want more information, please email us at zoolatry@gmail.com.
Bye now, Maggy & Zoey, and the Zoolatry Human (Ann)

It has been hard recently with all the kitties going to the bridge....nice to light a candle in their honor.
A poo sample? I hate those....mom does not make me have them any more because they cost her more money and my poo is clean. I hope Toeshee does not have worms. He will probably be a calmer kitty after the snipping.
