Our First Loss

Our KittyWhiskas For Catsters group has more than 100 members after only about a month. But now we've had a loss of one of our members. Mortimer died on October 27, 2007 of throat and mouth cancer and failing kidneys. One of our other members who was eager to post members' birthdays tried to list them three years in advance, but Bitu tried to explain that you can't always predict whether somebody will make it to their next birthday or not, prompting her to resign her appointment as Vice President. But Mortimer was lucky to make it to his 2007 birthday this year. We're hoping that the system will allow Mortimer to be nominated to the KittyWhiskas For Catsters Memorial Wall, because somebody else we've been trying to invite hasn't made it through. I don't think the higher-ups realize the havoc the changes in the system have wrought in their efforts to show themselves "economical". They should go back to what they had before so that group invitations can go through. Mortimer's people really need it now, especially since his people have lost three cats in his family within one year. The only good thing about this is that those of his family who've been waiting for him are being happily reunited with him now at the legendary Rainbow Bridge, and none of them are suffering from the things that took them. Mortimer was just as valuable to our group as anybody who might have the good fortune to stay with us longer, and he will be greatly missed.
