Remembering Merci



As we posted previously, our sweet Merci died June 29, 2018 at age 17.  (Farewell Merci)

It was a pleasant surprise to recently receive an email from the blog Alasandra, the Cats and the Dogs (ATCAD) with this lovely graphic letting us know they would be doing a post remembering Merci on the 22nd.

We're grateful we aren't the only ones who remember Merci.  Thank you, ATCAD, for caring.  We're not sure what time they are posting, but we will be on our way over to visit them as soon as we can get online today.  We hope you will drop by there too.  Just click here.

It's hard to believe that there are only two of us Funny Farmers left (Cyndi and Percy) who remember the days when Socks, Sassy, Asta, Momo and many other blogging friends allowed us to participate in their adventures.  We had such fun!  Asta moved from New York to Budapest and now has a brother.  Socks, Momo, Sassy and so many others are now at the bridge with our other original siblings - Cotton, Crystal, Buddy, Cameron, Sam, and Jenny.

Our little red-headed sister will live forever in our hearts.

Update:  It's been a bit rough since Merci left and we temporarily forgot that today would have been Merci's 15th Gotcha Day and her assigned birthday.

  1. Scylla is the only one here who had the privilege of going on the adventures. MoMo was such a good girlfriend inviting Socks' younger sisters to go on their adventures with them. Mommy says they were the Golden Days of Cat Blogging.

    Thank you for being our friend, we are so glad you like the graphic we made.

  14. That is a beautiful graphic in memory of Merci and for her birthday at the Bridge. Blogging has changed so much over the years and there are so few of our original friends left.

  21. I'm so sorry about Merci. I also remember those early fun days of blogging adventures. I also know anniversaries and gotcha days are so difficult remembering our special furry family members after they have passed. Sending you tons of love and support across the miles. XOXO

  23. Merci was very special and loved. And now sorely missed...
    We didn't start blogging till only a few years ago, but we sure miss seeing her around too.
    The days on the calendar for our furry one always bring fond remembrances to us here too of our angel furry ones.

    Purrs and waggles
