Tabbygail didn't have a blog, but you can read about her last sickness on the Purrs and Prayers Blog and you can read about her on her Catster page. Tabbygail was lost or abandoned in her Mom's neighborhood in January 2000 and found her way to her Mom's house. Her Mom suspects that their house has a sign, visible only to cats, which says, "Hungry cats welcome here." After feeding Tabbygail for a couple of weeks, she started to become more approachable and the humans suspected that she might be pregnant. When the weather turned really nasty in February, they brought her inside and she gave birth to four kittens, which the family also adopted. Her family thinks she was three or four years old when she was adopted. Once Tabbygail got used to her new humans, she became very affectionate and loved to be brushed. She loved to watch birds and squirrels out the window and chatter at them. She had a favorite toy leather mouse which she played with. She was really enjoying life until she developed a tumor. It was in a place which made it almost impossible to remove. Rather than risk losing her on the operating table, her family decided on an alternate treatment and Tabbygail was doing well on this treatment until she developed a complication in her lungs. This was making it very difficult for her to breathe, so her family made the difficult decision to send her on to the Rainbow Bridge on October 17th.
We now say goodbye to sweet Tabbygail.
She had a good life till her health did fail.
She went to the Bridge
Just over the ridge
To play forever, did sweet Tabbygail.
