Now Where Did That Year Go To??

Got My Heavenly Appointment

Yee Haw! I've made my appointment to cross The Rainbow Bridge on Caturday February 11th. So I'm shining up my Cowboy Chuck Wagon and gonna read the instructions on how to fly it when I've always only driven it. THis is going to be an experience for my Cowboy Kitty self.

Yes the dreaded FIP disease has done me in - but I hear I'm a miracle meowster having lived with it to the ripe ol' age of 4-1/2.

Momma is donating my body to the San Francisco SPCA Hospital where my tissues are going to be used in FIP research and amazingly the research program is being done with the University of California in Davis. And, that school is in YOLO COunty - so it's good. I hope my tissues will be helping others - it's like a good reason to cross the Rainbow Bridge.

So adios amigos and y'all carry on and please drop by my brofur's place one in a while, as I kinda worry bout him without me being round to keep his paws on the ground (hee hee)

Yee Haw!
Yolo the Cowboy Kitty who moved to the City

Oh, Yolo, I'm so sad to hear this news. Lots of love to you and your momma. Wishing you happiness with the clowder in the clouds.

Yolo, my furriend. What can a cat say at a time like this? I'm glad to see that you are being so courageous about this whole thing. I'm sure Mama Baci is helping you. Guido has loads of furriends so there's no need to worry about him although I'm sure he will miss you very much. Tell your mom that she has lots of friends, too, who care and will be right here for her.

I purray that your crossing will be swift and painless and that once you get to the Bridge you will meet up with your Mama and all the furriends who have gone on before you.

Lots of mancat love,
Greyson (and love and tears and prayers from Mom Cindy)

Although mom and I don't know you, we are saddened to learn that you will be crossing the Rainbow Bridge at such a young age, Yolo. Perhaps you have a better purpose there--maybe leading to finding a cure for FIP.

Our purrs to your family. It's not right that you have to be taken from them so soon. But FIP shows no mercy. Your pawents are doing the right thing and you won't be in pain any more. We think it's wonderful that you're donating your body to science. Maybe it will help find a cure or at least treatment so other families won't go through what yours is. My Daddy's grandaunt gave her body to science when her time ended (and boy was it used up after 96 years of living) and we admire her for it.

Many thanks for loving this boy and giving him the best life possible.

Oh Yolo, I am so sorry. My mom teared up thinking about how brave your mom is. She has utmost respect for her decision to donate your tissues for FIP research. I remember when I was younger, I got sick with a really high fever, and mom was terrified it was FIP. She read up on it and couldn't believe how little is known about FIP, and how nothing can be done. It turned out I didn't have FIP, but I did show antibodies towards coronavirus, which is the virus that mutates into FIP. The vet told my mom that 30-50 percent of cats have coronavirus. But they don't know what causes it to sometimes mutate into FIP. I hope someday there is a cure, because too many of our friends are lost. Yolo, you are one of the best of cats, and you are leaving a big mark on Catster that we won't forget.

When we read your symptoms in your previous entry, we thought "FIP? No, Yolo's in the wrong age group." But alas . . . We are sad to hear the diagnosis but very glad your family is donating your tissue to medical research. Nearly 5 years ago, we lost our Chloe to FIP, and our human companions were shocked how little is known about this deadly disease. They donated to a foundation that is funding FIP research in Chloe's memory, but what your family is doing is more important. We'll be thinking of you, Guido, and your human companions tomorrow. Godspeed, friend!

And that tells me something, my heavenly friend...
Life goes on...both here, and at the Bridge. I have to believe, as I hear the tick of the clock and the hiss of the radiator thing kicking in, and heating this cold morning that for us, felines, life IS. We don't see the leap to Rainbow as something frigtening or destroying. We see it as a natural part of life. It's sad for our people, but we aren't sad. Wistful perhaps, to leave them in the form we knew, but we don't 'end'. We simply change form. And some of us change form as humans would change into different clothes...so we come back in different furs. Why? Because we just do.

FIP...I'm glad you are able to make a difference to those who come after us, who will benefit from the research. Who may not get FIP becaues of you....

But now....my Cowboycat friend...my Mancat at Work friend with the big tail and bigger heart, please know that you are honored here, as only an Orangemango cat can honor you. I sit up and salute you Yolo, and watch as you turn and with a flip of your tail and a 'mmmmrt' stop midway across that bridge of many colors and salute with just the outline of what look like wings over your back....

and you turn, run on...and disseapear as the colors turn to a rainbow arch and the last of the evening stars fade in the bright of the sun.

We love you, Yolo. And we know, as sure as the sun shines, that you'll be sending us many blessings as you join that wonderous Krewe up there, readying for Mardi Gras...and in cowboycat style whiser into the heart of your people....I love you always, and am still, still here....

love and light,
Ruffy

We are so sad that you are gone, Yolo. What a brave decision for your Mom to make! Purrs to your family,

Keisha, Sylvester and Merlin
