It's with a heavy heart that I share the news that at 9:15 this morning Catster Mercedes (Mercy) went to the Bridge. She leaves behind over 19,000 Catster friends and her furry family: Nike, Reebok, Cosmo, Quincy, Riley, Sophie, Miley, Pebbles, Joy, Enzo, Melody and Pixie.
Mercy found her furever home after her family's beloved Bibi succumbed to cancer. Her mom described her as a "good girl" who was sociable, affectionate, goofy, and polite. She loved having conversations with her people, and even when she was napping, if someone spoke near her, she'd respond with a "mew" assuming they were talking to her.
Mercedes are her family are fixtures each year in the World's Coolest Cat Contest. In 2008, Mercedes was the "Stretch and Yawn" winner.
Before going to the vet this morning, Mercy's Dad wrapped her in her Hazel Lucy tranquility blanket and her Mom took her for one last stroll in the sunny backyard.
Condolences can be left on Mercy's Catster profile. Please share your loving memories of Mercy in the comments field below.
Mercy was nine years old.
