Title: Another lost friend
Post by: morticaixavier on May 31, 2011, 10:18:52 pm
Please raise a pint tonight to commerate my lost friend.

Pooka has curled up next to my head on cold nights and kept my houses free of mice (well, whole ones anyway) for the last 13 years. Last night, she decided it was time to move on to more pleasant hunting grounds.

RIP Pooka the Invisible Cat 1996-2011

Yeah, that's just no damn fun. I'm still in "waves of grief" from my 14 something year old going on this weekend.

I feel for you.  I never liked cats at all, but over the past 48 years I've been adopted by a bunch of different cats(as their house slave).  They really do grow on you, more than I ever thought possible.

Thanks all for the kind thoughts and many pints raised. Drew I am sorry to hear about your kitty. I remember when your kitty took ill. It really hit home as I could already see the changes in Pooka's starting. Well maybe they are traveling in good company this day. The NorCal Kitty and the SoCal kitty chillin over a pint of mousebrau.
