Skeezix

I was so saddened to hear the news that our good friend Skeezix has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. We knew he didn't have long left but had hoped he could stay with the Food Lady and Mr Tasty Face for a while longer. My mum, my brother Eric and I enjoyed reading all of his adventures and seeing his trips in his stroller. He will be remembered as a great fashionista too.
We send our condolences to his family and Mao and Tripper.
You will never be forgotten Skeezy. Be happy and pain free at the Bridge with all your friends.

What a nice tribute. We didn't know Skeezix or find out about him until he passed. It certainly seems as if he was one cool cat. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

Skeezix was one of the first cats that we discovered too. We did used to laugh at his stroller and driving posts.

Such a sad day in the blogging community. Our hearts are all heavy as we will miss our dear friend. I know you brother and Skeezix are together and enjoying seeing each other once again.

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

It was sad to read, but we saw it was coming. I was around when both Skeeter and LC went to the Bridge so I have talked to Iza and Marley to help them understand when they read about these sadnesses. They are slowly unnerstanding that the Bridge eventually calls to us all.

We both mourn those who must leave and celebrate their renewed health and happy times among old and new furends while they wait for their Bein to arrive.
