September 17, 2004 — July 17, 2020
Mauricio “Mau” has passed away. The king of the porch, patroller of the garden
and resident of my lap during volleyball on television, went outside this morning,
as usual, and peacefully put on his angel wings.
I will write a nice memorial post for our beloved Mau at a later date. For now, Dad Tom, Kitties Blue, Mau’s beloved wife Allie and I just want to say, “thank you,” to everyone who has posted comments and left condolences on Facebook, here and at Cat Scouts.
Also, we’d like to send our thanks to Ann of Zoolatry for this beautiful memorial badge.
In Mau’s memory, I am sharing one of my favorite arty creations of him from May 13, 2017.
Our Angel Mau is joining the Caturday Art blog hop hosted by the lovely Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty. To participate, click on Athena’s badge.

I read of Mauricio’s passing on the Eastside Cats’ blog. I’m very sorry that he had to go. It never feels right, even if the decision is. God bless you, and Godspeed, Mauricio.
We are deeply touched by Mau’s passing. Our thoughts are with the Kitties Blue at this sad time.
Shoko, Tyebe and mom Jean
We are so sorry to hear about your sweet Mau.
No matter their age, each kitty holds a firm place in our heart and it hurts when they go.
Purrs and many hugs,
Purrs,Georgia and Julie

I was so sorry to read Tom’s post about Mau. Losing one of our furry companions can be so hard, but please know he was well loved. My thoughts are with you.
Thinking of you at this sad time. May all the happy memories you have of Mau bring you comfort.
We are so sorry to read this ! Sounds like he went peacefully, in his own way and on his own time. We know many many friends met him over the Bridge, but that doesn’t make his loss any easier on this side. Purrayers and POTP to all who love him.
Janet and Tom and family we dont know what to say but will say that we are thinking of you and sending our prayers and purrs of support. Dear Mau was such a great Scout and always a fun fellow who we will miss terribly. We are deeply thankful for having known him and you all.
Timmy, Dad and Family

I was very very sorry to hear about the loss of your sweet Mau. I am not sure what is worse the suddenness of losing a beloved one or the long goodbye. Either one is awfully painful. I understand the painful feelings in your heart as I too just went through my own loss of the Momma cat to all to my kittens, Mina, on Monday. You are in my thoughts and prayers and of course all the kitties in the house are keeping your in their purrs. This is a beautiful reminder of how beautiful and handsome Mau was in your Caturday art.
I’m so sorry for your loss. What a lovely boy he must have been.
We are shocked and saddened about the news of Mau. We send many comforting purrs, hugs and lots of love.
Sue, Ernie & Zoey
We grieve with you.
Run free at The Rainbow Bridge, Angel Mauricio.
My heart goes out to you. No matter how long we have them it is never long enough 😢
Farewell Mau ~ as you meet with friends beyond the rainbow, feel your joy, your peace and your freedom from earthly ills and pain ~ but never forget how much love for you remains here with all who knew you.
I am so sorry. I wish I had words of comfort, but there are none. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Tom and all Mau’s fursiblings. XO
I’m for your loss. Sending comforting thoughts.
To all the loved ones of Mau a most handsome Tuxie Angel. I send you my purrs and hugs…and a wee message made from the letters M A U
Allie’s true love
Uwill be truly missed Mau

We can’t even start to express our feeling about Mau leaving for the Bridge. Our hearts are so heavy and Mom has had leaky eyes since she got Mom Janet’s text. We loved Mau so much. He was a fine ManCat, a super Cat Scout (and baker) and a wonderful and loving husband to our Allie. We still can’t believe this is true.
Love to all of you,
The Florida Furkids and Mom Sharon
Allie sends love and smoochies to Mau at the Bridge and Noelle sends paw pats and headbonks to Sawyer.
I am saddened to learn of your Mau’s passing. I know, as do all of us here today, the intense sadness in the household right now. My deepest condolences and purrs to you all.
Bunty and I heard the news at Cat Scouts. I had hoped it was a bad dream and that Mau was still with us. He is greatly loved and will be greatly missed. Hopefully his spirit will still be found at Scouts. Hugs from me and purrs from Bunty. Angela, Bunty’s mom and fellow cat lover
I am so very sorry to hear this news, Janet. My heart aches for you and Tom. Sending prayers that you all can find some comfort in the happy memories.
That sweet boy of yours was part of all of our lives…..always will be. Sometimes there just aren’t enough words to express what’s in our hearts but just know we love you all, will miss Mau like crazy and hope in time, your heartache will ease.
Love always, Pam and Teddy
I was very sad to hear about Mauricio’s passing. I hope you will all be okay.
