Wordy Wednesday

Losing friends is always devastating but when they fly off to the bridge in bunches, it is particularly difficult. We continue to grieve for Mau. When Allie decided to join him, our grief doubled.

But Allie isn’t the only kitty who received angel wings last week. Good friends, Polar Bear (15 And Meowing) and Budd (The Canadian Cats) also left for the Rainbow Bridge. Normally I would have featured them on our Sunday blog hop, but Allie, being family, deserved her own post.

Polar Bear was rescued from the streets as an adult by Ellen. That was in 2008. The fact that he had health issues then and was deaf, was not a deterrent to Ellen and David, who added him to their family. Polar Bear had a loving home and family for the past 12 years until more recent health issues caused his decline. Rest in Peace, Polar Bear. You will be missed.

Budd was the brother to Tyebe and Shoko. Though, he only became a member the family two years ago; Tyebe and he became fast friends. They enjoyed spending time in the yard and exploring the lane. Budd had not been feeling well and stopped eating and drinking. His mom and dad, Jean and Bill, helped him to the bridge on Thursday. Good-bye Budd. Cooper Murphy promises to look after Tyebe for you.

These boys had many friends and followers in the blogosphere. They both will be missed and remembered always. By now most of you have probably left your condolences for Polar Bear’s and Budd’s human parents. If not, you can find links to their blogs above.
