Cherokee was helped to the bridge last Tuesday, Nov 23, and his family did a lovely memorial post this Monday.  We are so sorry for their loss.  You can visit Cherokee's family and leave a message at the Cat Street Boyz blog.

This Monday Au and Target lost their 18-year-old brother Qwill.  You can read Qwill's memorial post and leave a comment at Katz and Other Tales blog.

Both graphics are by KC of the Cat Blogosphere. She makes these graphics through her own tears to help comfort the families.

We prepared this post yesterday but would like to add one more item we just read.  Jan is always getting rid of mushrooms because they are a nuisance, produce spores and she's allergic.  She used to feel a bit strange, wondering what the neighbors thought, when she walked the yard looking for mushrooms.She had no idea how dangerous they could be to us, either in the yard or along the path of our walk.   But a puppy in New Jersey named Lucky was very unlucky when he ate just a small piece of a mushroom.  And if one just vet hospital sees.about 25 cases of mushroom poisoning a year and only one or two survive, how many thousands must die from this annually?  You can read the article with signs and symptoms here.
