Thanks to the Catster Overlords for choosing me as one of the DDP's yesterday. In usual form, Mom missed it. Slacker. But, she has been spending a lot of time with me as the weather changes. She can't find my heating pad. She said if she can't find it by Saturday morning, I get a new one. Cool. Thanks to Smiley Cassanova and Buddie for never forgetting me when I win DDP. Unlike Meowmie.
I don't even feel like typing right now. I feel like lying on daddy's pillow and crying. Bella came over and licked my face. She knows my heart is very sad. She just curled up near me and lay down. Buddy is in here too.
I am just staring off into space. My mind seems so blank. One of my friends for like....forever...went to the bridge today. It was her time. We are the same age, just one month apart. She was born in May 1996 and I was born in June 1996. That's right....17 years old. That is a long time to be hanging around planet earth. Kaci Sunshine is my friend's name. Beautiful orange girl, so nice and so friendly. Her sister Miss Mittens was the same. She went to the bridge already. Now Kaci and Miss Mittens can run and play just like they used to. Kaci's mom is very, very heartbroken and sad. As I lay here staring off into space, I send purrs to her. I know that one day, it will be my turn. Meowmie said I cannot ever leave. That means I will be a seriously old and haggard looking cat. No, seriously...Meowmie has been watching me like a hawk. All my friends are going to the bridge.
Meowmie said that she will wrap me in a blankie and take me outside on the deck in back and let me look at the stars with my old man eyes and see if I can spot Kaci's star dancing and playing. I am looking forward to telling her that I will see her later. I will not say goodbye. I never say goodbye.
Anyone who reads this, please send purrs and prayers to Kaci Sunshines meowmie...she hurts really bad in her heart.

Thank you precious friend Paisan for this beautiful tribute. Mommy cried as she read it.
Yes, look for me tonight. You'll see my Star dancing and twirling in the deep dark of the night sky. I'll be sprinkling angel healing dust on you and sending you and your dear mommy angel blessings.
Love to you always Paisan,
While we are a lot younger and knew Kaci so much shorter...we will miss her, too; furry much:(
We send you purrs in fur the loss of your furend, that is so hard...and we send a load more to Kaci's furmily, too.
And huge tight hugs.
Back at you. We love Kaci. We know she's fine...mommy shared this Indian-er-Native American saying (Daddy is from one of those tribe things-we're all tribe of the cat if you ask me.)
The saying is thus:
'When you were born, you cried and your loved one's laughed.
Live your life so that when you die, you will laugh and your loved ones cry'.
It seems as though Miss Sunshine has accomplished this feat-she's left many broken hearts...
she is much loved.
hugs dear friend.
I'm very sad about Kaci too - sending her momma lotsa purrs.
