I thought I was going to take a couple of days off blogging and get my blogroll switched over, but then I started feeling like I was coming down with something and just came home from work and went to bed. I was offline for two days and came back to some sad news. I think I better get back to doing my limericks and just doing the blogroll stuff when I can.
This is a picture of Boody from a couple of months ago before he got so sick. Boody was born on May 5, 1992 and was adopted by his forever family that June. He had a long happy life in his new home. He liked to eat various kinds of fruit, which his family found amusing. When he stopped being so playful, his family adopted Elin. Boody wasn't so happy with this. Elin always wanted to play with him, but he didn't feel like playing, so he would warn her off. Mostly, he just ignored her. He was a Persian-Malaysian cat mix, which gave him floofy fur and Malaysian markings. He also had a very short tail, which you can see in the photo. Yup, that's all of it. Lately, Boody got very ill and there was nothing that could be done for him. The vet said that he was too old and too sick to be cured of whatever was wrong with him. He stopped grooming and eating. Then he lost his ability to stand and walk. On the evening of March 8th, Boody made his own way to the Rainbow Bridge, which made his family very sad. I am sure that he is now having a wonderful time with the other Rainbow Bridge cats.
Poor old Boody wasn't having much fun,
So off to the Rainbow Bridge he did run.
Now he runs carefree
Through grass and lea.
Have a great time, Boody, now your suffering's done.
