Farewell, Bandit

Bandit's Mom scooped him up from the middle of the road in 1994 and took him home. He has been there ever since. Bandit was one of those kitties who are always into everything and seem to be everywhere at once. Was there some mischief that needed doing? Bandit was there. Was there an empty lap somewhere? Bandit found it. Bandit had a heart full of love and he was eager to share it. He also had a loud voice and wasn't afraid to use it. Bandit had been having tummy troubles for several months and he lost a lot of weight. It finally got so bad that he had to be helped to the Bridge. He is sorely missed by his beans and fellow cats.

                                      Bandit was an outgoing boy.
                                      He loved everyone and was never coy.
                                            Bridge kitties beware,
                                            Now that he's there
                                       There will be no stopping this exhuberant boy.

What a wonderful limerick and tribute to Bandit.

We haven't been around much lately, and we are saddened by all the kitties who went to the Bridge in the last month or so.

We love all your limerick tributes to these wonderful kitties.

You're awesome!

It makes mom happy to think that Bandit is causing lots of trouble (good trouble) up at the Bridge, and is no longer in any pain.
