Farewell, Rocky Ann
Hey evrybuddy, Skeezix heer.
The Catster community was rocked this weekend with the news that Catster Superstar Rocky Ann had goneto the Rainbow Bridge.
She had been in poor helth due to kronik renal failure for some time, but in troo Rocky Ann spirit, she was a fighter until the vary end. She said good-bye at home, wrapped in pink Hello Kitty blankets and the love of her pawrents. The sound of a few thousand purrs from around the world gave RA the strength to leeve her pawrents and join her Frends Who Went Before at the Bridge.
Rocky Ann considerd each of her 6,663 Catster frends as a best frend. Rocky Ann just didn't beeleeve you could ever have too many best frends. She loved pink (just like me!) and Hello Kitty, and politiks and strolling. In fakt, her pashun for strolling led her to create the Super Stroller groop on Catster. She even gave me the first thing to put on my stroller: a purrsonalized license plate!
Frekwintly a Daily Diary pick, Rocky Ann was also Catster's Cat of the Day on September 5, 2006, and Cat of the Week on Valentine's Day 2007. If there were a Queen of Catster award, RA would probly have won that, too!
Rocky Ann embodied the Catster spirit, and I always pikcherd her as a cheerleeder, waving pink poms, giving evrywun props and lifting up our spirits. Her enthooziasm and optimizm were infekshus.
And I'll admit, I've always bin a little bit jellus of RA. She had her own pink Hello Kitty bedroom, and got lots of daily massages and had a fab wardrobe. She reely knew how to live the good life.
Rocky Ann's best frend Samoa recently organized a Rocky Ann Catster Stroll to show support for her frum her Catster frends. If you haven't yet joined the stroll, tag a photo "rocky ann" to pawticipate.
Rocky Ann, it's hard to beeleeve yer gone. I'll never be able to look at Hello Kitty or a peece sine without thinking of you. I hope you've got lots of YEOWW! Catnip toys to play with at the Bridge, and yer free of pane and discomfert. We're sending lots of purrs to yer pawrents on this sad, sad day.
Readers, if you have memories of Rocky Ann you'd like to share, pleeze leeve a comment.
