Daddy Mark, Fred and Scooby

First thing Sunday morning we learned of two losses.



Kattonic Cats (Zippy, Sadie & Speedy) lost their human dad.

There is usually a graphic when a kitty passes, so we thought we would make one for Daddy Mark.  (You're welcome to use it if you'd like.) We send big {{{hugs}}} and supportive love to Mom Donna.  She's been posting some news on Facebook but supportive comments can be left on the Kattonic Cats blog.



The second thing we read Sunday morning was that Fred the bloodhound was put to sleep after having 17 seizures within 24 hours.  We knew he was having cluster seizures Friday but hoped they could be controlled.  We didn't make Fred a graphic, as photos on the blog are copyrighted. 


Fred visited our blog last year and we enjoyed visiting him.  We're sad he lost his health battle. Hugs to his human.  She has also been posting on Facebook but supportive comments can be left on the Hound Girl blog

And then last night we saw more bad news in our Reader.  Scooby of Little Cat Feet died suddenly and unexpectedly yesterday afternoon.  You can read the details in his mom's post "Scooby Has Gone to Rainbow Bridge."  We have enjoyed Scooby, Shaggy & Scout's posts for several years now and we will miss Scooby.   Big {{{hugs}}} and supportive love for his human mom.


We know many of you are already aware of the three deaths, but some aren't and we wanted to do a memorial post anyway. Don't worry about leaving us a comment today.  We'd rather you visit the grieving.

  4. No, it sure wasn't a good weekend around the CB. I was talking about this with a friend yesterday--that when we're young we think life gets easier when we get older, that we have the answers, that things come smoothly. But really, getting older only brings more questions, more confusion, more loss and grief. It's hard, sometimes.

    All the more reason to appreciate the small, quiet joys we often overlook each day.
