Smiles and Tears

We haven't posted in several weeks and would not be posting today but we have a special purpose or two. Reason #1 is that today is ML's birthday and we couldn't let her day go by without wishing her a howling, meowling great day!

Yes ... what the graphic says.  From all of us at JFF.  (We love the graphic, but we're kind of curious as to why ML's kitties are on the card we're sending her.)

While we've been gone, there has been a lot of bridge activity. 

The CB and Tabby Cat Club lost Captain Casper yesterday.

Sammy passed away suddenly on May 18th.

On May 15th Gentleman Beau left the care of Rose & the Royals to be with his Mom Cathy.

Fin of Housecat Confidential held on as long as she could but she was ready to leave on May 7th. 

There were more losses, including a few woofies but we don't have a the info handy or a graphic for them. Purrs, woofs and hugs to the family of each furry.  They were each loved and are all missed. 

The 2nd reason we are posting today is to announce the Funny Farm Felines' first interview is now posted on the cat ezine Mousebreath. (We woofies are thinking of suing for discrimination.  We could be good reporters too, but no woofies allowed.)  The lovely Parker (affectionately known as Parker Pie) is their first subject.  We hope you will stop by to read Parker's story and then drop by the Perfectly Parker blog to leave lots of smoochies for her and her family.

UPDATE:   When we corresponded with Parker's Mom last weekend, we weren't aware Parker would be leaving quite so soon.  She will be helped to the bridge tomorrow.  Thank you, Mom Helen, for working with us and thank you Skeezix & Food Lady for expediting the post yesterday so we didn't have to ask Jan if she knows how to post to Wordpress.  (She doesn't!  Yet.)  Parker, we love you and wish you a peaceful journey!

We hope to be back soon, but you all know how life can interfere with the best intentions of two-leggers and furries.
