I didn't know Dino very well. I have his blog on my blogroll, but I just didn't visit very often. His Mom posted on Monday that he had crossed to the Rainbow Bridge after a battle with kidney failure on July 18th. He was just a month short of his 19th birthday. He had a long and wonderful life. One thing that I do know about him is that he was instrumental in putting forth the idea of Meezer World Domination. That idea has really grown. The Cat Blogosphere will really miss him.
Dino has gone to the Great Beyond,
Leaving behind his family fond.
He lived a long time
With a love sublime,
Which will sustain his family fond.
I knew TT a whole lot better. She was a frequent visitor to my blog and I to hers. I really enjoyed reading about her and the adventures of all her family. She was with her Mom for only a little less than two years, though she was an older cat, about 12. She seems to have had a rough time of it before her Mom found her in a parking lot, but the last two years were spent with a very loving family.
TT let it be known that she was in pain.
Her Mom took her to the vet again.
Mom held her close
For the final dose.
Now TT will nevermore know pain.
