Farewell, Meep

This is an old picture of Meep, but it's my favorite. He had just gotten his lion cut and he was feeling really good. Meep got a lion cut about every six months because he had very thick, long fur and it got really tangled and matted. No amount of brushing could cope with the matting and Meep didn't groom himself, for some reason. Meep didn't like the process of getting his lion cut, but he loved the result. Meep was adopted to be company for Buzzerbee, who was FIV+. Of course, Meep was FIV+, too. The virus didn't bother him much until lately. When Buzzerbee went to the Bridge in 2007, Meep got very lonely, so his Mom adopted Twizzler. Twizzler wanted to play a lot more than Meep did, so Bear was brought into the family. About three months ago, Meep was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Just lately he also got an infection, which his weakened immune system couldn't handle. It was time for Meep to go to the Rainbow Bridge to be with Buzzerbee. I will really miss him.

                                        Heart failure was beating Meep down.
                                        To see him so weak made his Mom frown,
                                                     So she gave him wings.
                                                     Now his heart sings
                                         As Meep and Buzz turn the Bridge upside down.

That was so nice. We will miss Meep, too, and since our Bandit is also new at The Bridge, maybe they will explore together.
We will see them again!

Lovely tributes and limericks for all the kitties who have gone to the Bridge lately. I had hoped that the new year would somehow put a stop to the sadness, but it seems not. ::Sigh...::. Keep doing what you're doing dear Karen Jo, I know your words bring comfort. xxx
