We have lost another furry friend today. We didn't know Kali as well as we did Storm but it was obvious Kali's health was declining and she would soon need help to the bridge. We just didn't think it would be today.
Kali, you have lived a long life with dignity and fiery tortitude (that's tortoiseshell catitude, in case you aren't familiar with the term). We feel the richer for having known you.
Your mom is heartbroken and needs all the comfort we - meaning the blogosphere - can give her. Your brothers and sisters Tyler, Cookie, Sophie and Jake are missing you too. Our tears haven't dried from Storm leaving, but that does not diminish our tears for losing you. You are missed and will be remembered.

Blogging sometimes seems like a little laughter and a lot of tears. We come to care about others, so every loss brings personal pain.
A number of our furry friends have passed recently and although we have left messages for their families on their blogs, we have not mentioned them on ours. So we are going to do that now - to the best of our pitiful memories, as we know there have been more but we can't remember them all at this moment. If we forgot to include yours, please let us know.
Be happy and celebrate the lives of each of these fortunate furbabies because they lived much or all of their years surrounded by such love that when it was their time, those that needed it were helped to the bridge to save them further pain and suffering. Young or old, expected or unexpected, each loss leaves an empty place in our hearts that can not be filled.

We know Wildcats3 (now the cat/dog log) lost one but we can't find the information on their site. We might not remember details, but we do remember.
