A celebration of the kitties (and their friends) of the CatBlogosphere in verse.

Kelly was the Big Guy over at Good Cats and he will be sorely missed. He was getting on in years and had had Irritable Bowel Syndrome for quite a while. Lately he was having more digestive problems and when it was discovered that his kidneys were failing, his Mom and Dad knew that they would have to help him go to the Bridge. On his last day, he wanted to go outside, even though it had been raining all day. He looked around and scratched on his favorite tree, then turned to come back inside. He refused to eat anything at all, so his Mom and Dad knew that it was time. There is a wonderful video of Kelly getting a tummy rub and purring on his blog.
Kelly was a Good Cat; of that there is no doubt. He was really slowing down, but he still wanted out. He gave his tree one last scratch And looked around for a mouse to catch. Then he went to the Bridge, where he leaps about.
