Buddy has a Sad

We haven't been posting often for a while.  Life just gets in the way of blogging sometimes. We did have a happy post planned for today, but we'd like to acknowledge the most recent blogosphere losses we're aware of.  What would we do without the Cat Blogosphere to post the news for us?  We aren't aware of anything similar for dogs, so it's harder to keep up with the woofie news.

Well, do the fun post separately later today.  Meanwhile, we'll let Buddy post the sad news for all of us.

Buddy:  I am very depressed today.  If you remember, I recently declared a moratorium - no blogging pets or humans are allowed to leave for the bridge for two (2) decades.  But they're not paying attention to me and they're still leaving.  If my head gets any lower to the ground, my ears will get dirty and  Jan will want to scrub them, so Cotton says I've got to keep my chin up.  I decided to just crawl into Merci's basket bed to keep my ears clean while I mourn.

Yesterday we lost Sparky Fuzzypants of DaisyMae Maus and the Feline Americans. Sparky, you handsome dude, we understand you were ready to go, but your family wasn't prepared to say good-bye.  (They never are.)

Blackie of Whippy Curly Tails left on Tuesday.  We tried to leave a comment but we just can not do word verification on blogs any more!  Not even for sad news.  We went back today and there is now one picture and a one word hieroglyphic to decipher. We don't have an email address for them, so we'll just hope they come across this post so they know we do care about their loss.

We send {{{hugs}}}, purrs and pawhugs for both blogging families.

We have finished the happy post for today.  Click here to read it. 


  1. So many of our friends are going to the Bridge. We has a sad, too, Buddy.

    Hugs to you all, dear friends.

  2. There's been too many sad news lately. :(

  3. It seems as though one of our furrends goes to the Bridge nearly every day.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  4. Purrs and hugs to you all from us too. It does seem that every day, or almost every day, someone is passing on. Maybe because the pet blogging world has grown so much now, it's inevitable that someone is leaving us on a regular basis. But it sure doesn't make it easier to take.

  5. We know these losses are part of life, but it doesn't make it any easier.

  6. So so sad that so many friends are leaving.. I so hope it stops and they stay with us for longer.. HUgs GJ xx

  7. Yep, and the sad can take a break any time now.

  8. I wish NONE of our furends would ever leave fur the bridge... butt we do have the knowledge that we will see them again. SIGH

  9. Sadly we have an aging population (sounds like baby boomers doesn't it?) of kitties and that means Bridge departers. All too many. So many wet whiskers. It needs to stop...


  10. Yes...May has been a very sad month in Blogville. We've already lost 17 of our furiends that we know about. And how many more do we not know about? Yes....sad!

  11. Yeah, we think a moratorium would be a good idea, too.


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
