A Sad Day

Yesterday morning, our beloved Toby Parker went off to the Bridge. He had been in declining health for a while and become progressively more ill over the past week. With heavy hearts, we decided to let him go. We have already received condolences from our many kitty friends and are gratefully overwhelmed by the love shown. We take some comfort from the fact that Toby left us on the anniversary of Fat Eric's death. We like to think they finally got to meet and even now are companionably having a snack or two. Or three. We will be posting a tribute over the weekend and we resolve to start posting again. Thank you, all. Cupcake, Kate and the family.

Of course Toby and Eric are hanging out together at the Bridge, I'm sure there are plenty of Greenies to share there. And Toby will be reunited with your Tilly too.

(((hugs)))

We were sad to hear about Toby. We are sure he had a huge welcoming committee at the Bridge. We are sending purrs and hugs from our house.

Thank you for your kind thoughts and words when Eric had to leave for the Rainbow Bridge. We miss him very much, but it is a comfort to know he was loved by so many.I am sure Toby and Tillie were waiting to welcome him along with all the other friends who have gone before

Thank you for your comforting words when we lost Tom to the Bridge. We miss him terribly but we know he has just as many friends there as he had here with us. xx

I'm sorry I'm so late in leaving this, but please know our thoughts and purrs are with you. I'm hoping Tigger greeted him with a big kitty hug!
