It is with a heavy heart that we say farewell to Lexi from the blog Deziz World. Seventeen-year-old, tabby Lexi (with her gorgeous green eyes) was a service cat for Mom Audra. Deziz will be handling service duties on her own for the time being. If you haven’t already, please stop by and leave your condolences.

Sorry we’re late getting here to thank you, Mom Janet and the Kitties Blue. Work has been crazy for us, so commenting and posting has been a bit challenging. Anyway, THANK YOU for your continued friendship, for your love and support of our awesome buddy Swizzle, and for your support of PAWS. You are amazing, and we love you!

We got an email from PAWS today. A total of $6575 was raised for the shelter. 🙂 Thank you for your thoughtfulness, and for helping get the word out, dear friends.

I love PAWS, I wish I could donate, but my vet trips this week with Daryl the Feral and Spooky and Millie real put a dent in my budget. I am glad you are supporting them.

We love PAWS! Thank you for sharing info on this event. I honestly had no idea about it, and so now I’m glad I know.

We are sending lots of purrs and prayers to Lexi’s mom and Dezi. Lexi was such an amazing cat, and her memory will certainly live on forever.

You’re lucky to have won that session with Carol, she’s a master of social medias of any kind. We would love to take part in BlogPaws chats, but Claire says that she’s sleeping at 2AM (yes, your 8PM is our 2AM) : can you believe it ? Purrs
