OMC, me and mommy are crying so much right now. I don't know how this happened but we just found out our friend Bumpurr went to the bridge on Friday. I am so broken up. We know he had HCM which scares mommy because it can happen a lot with Maine Coons, which I am one. Oh Bump, I am so sorry you had to leave. I will miss you so much. You were so crazy and so cuckoo sometimes but I loved ya buddy.

We are also furry worried about Timo & Mietzi. We emailed them last night to make sure they were okay, they live in Iowa. But have not heard a word. They had BAD BAD BAD tornado damage there last night. Oh guys and mommy Sonja, please be okay. We couldn't take anymore loss after this.

Luv all of you guys so furry furry much.
Finney and family

I will Ruffy, it gets us too because I am Maine Coon!!! I don't know if mom will speak with her or not. Bump hasn't been around here much for awhile now so they don't really talk that often. We only found out today on the get well purr list and not even some of the mommies that know Bump on other forums know. They are just as shocked. So I imagine she is grieving so badly she just can't talk about it.

Oh Bumpurr no. Yes, we knew Bumpurr mostly from the forums where he was so very helpful a few years ago when I had crystals.

We are OK, guys. We live in the suburbs of Des Moines. Des Moines had trees down and power out for hours. We just had very bad storms and rain was pouring down hard. Even the TV station and lost power for a few minutes. The rain was coming down so hard, it got scary. We had no tornado warning but the weatherman said in this situation a tornado may develop any time without warning. Mom had us two and the guest cat too, herded into the bedroom and she had put Mietzi into the linen closet until the radio said it was OK. 75 miles SW of us a tornado touched down. Thanks for caring. Sorry, Mom still hasn't checked her email. It's very windy today, Mietzi almost flew away.

We just saw Bumpurr's Mom's post in the forums about his journey to the Bridge:( Bumpurr was such a sweet kitty and we learned a lot from his posts, too. Such a shock. Mom gets all emotional when stuff like that happens and starts hugging and kissing us more than ever. Got to love and appreciate your fur babies every single day. Life is so precious.

Timo, glad to hear you are okay!

We are crying super hard now too Shadow. Mom can't stop. Poor Lisa, Bump would NEVER have had a chance at life if it wasn't for her. You're right Tully, kiss your babies every chance you get. Mom's been doing it a lot these days but today especially. *sniff* Bump I am going to miss your silly, crazy ways of talking!

WE read this last night and were so shocked and saddened mom always loves on us all but lately she has really increased the squeeze and kiss kiss time I am not really a cuddle kitty, I am fast and fiesty but have my moments. Mom wants to make every day be a day that she lets us all know we are very loved, life is so fragile on this side of the bridge.

Bumpurr never did diaries or read them even, but he's a legend in the forums. Many times kitties, including ourselves, did not agree with him on some issues. But his heart was in the right place and all he ever wanted was to help others with heart problems. His mom is very, very knowledgeable about HCM and I hope she continues to share that knowledge with others.

Each day is so very valuable when it comes to loving a spawcial family fur kitty~! We sorry to hear about Bumpurr, yes we seen him too 'n not sure we are friends, but we've sent POTP to his mom 'n families. Mom always cries when she hears our Catster furiends have passed on to the Bridge. It's just that mom is so cat crazy 'n feels so close to all Catster folks. We ALL have that one thang in common, our love for our kits. It's paw 'n paw we share, it's live 'n learn 'n bare. It's love furefur 'n efur. Mom says, you know what? We may or may not know them, but we all started somewhere and from the beginning here. That is how we all got so many friends we love. We love them all anyway. Because we care, we just do.

Purrs 'n Angel hugs,
