The broadband has been so busy here today at the Bridge since Calvin's arrival this morning, I could barely get a message through. I kneaded to say a few words, though, about my pal -- and your pal -- Calvin.
Calvin was everycat's pal. It didn't matter how "popular" a cat was or wasn't, Calvin would be their pal and be there for his pal.
I think that's just about the best thing you can say about any cat. That was Calvin. All that, and he was orange with big gorgeous green eyes, too.
Calvin entertained us, educated us (Word Up!) and enriched our lives, with the help of his loving Mawmee. Thank you, Calvin's Mawmee, for sharing your special orange boy with us.
My Mom and so many other Moms and Dads on Catster are sharing his Mawmee's and Daddy's sorrow tonight. I saw the number of hearts in Calvin's heart basket and I'm sure it was even more than the gazillion he said. Most were pieces of hearts from Catster Moms, including a piece from my Mom's heart -- I recognized that one.
I know you had a wonderful and a long life, Calvin. I know your Mawmee and Daddy have many wonderful memories to help fill the holes left in their hearts. I know you'll live in their hearts forever. I know they're going to miss you, though. So is all of Catster.
Angel purrrs are especially comforting so I'm joining your many other Angel friends, sending purrs to comfort your Mawmee and Daddy and family.
p.s. I borrowed the title of this entry from Calvin. It's very fitting today.

Scooter, what a wonderful tribute you wrote about a wonderful cat! Calvin was a great pal, wasn't he? He will be missed not only by his loving family but also by a lot of cats and humans here on Catster.
Speck and I welcomed Calvin as he crossed ove the Bridge. Our Mommy feels for this sweets boy's family ashe made the journey. Thank you for persisting to get your message through to those left behind.

Scooter, I found out about Calvin today from your diary entry. I've been checking every day, but mom was working ALL day yesterday and didn't get on Catster to let me check up on my friends until this morning. A beautiful tribute from a beautiful girl.
Very nice and meaningful...you said it well...
Bravo, Scooter, for the ethos and pathos of your diary entry! Calvin couldn't have had a better eulogy than this. Your words were in my heart...
