Thankful Thursday – Skeezix

from Janet Dake

We’ve been too upset to say anything here until now about Skeezix having discovered he has severely metastasized cancer and may have only days or months before he has to cross the rainbow bridge.  To say we’re heartbroken is to put it mildly.  Even my mother asks several times a day if there’s any more news about how Skeezix is doing. There’s not a dry eye in the house. We’re so very sad for Skeezix and his whole family: The Food Lady Karen, Mr Tasty Face, Mao, Tripper.

So what’s to be thankful for in all this?

That we know Skeezix.

He introduced us to big parties online many years ago with his 2nd birthday bash. He’s made us laugh and grin for all these years. He’s hanging around on our walls in cards and pawtographed photos still making more smiles. He even taught my mother who Stacey and Clinton are and how much fun their show is. There’s been no end to the smiles Skeezix has brought.

We’re grateful that we’ve been privileged to know Skeezy. Even though we’re sad that he’s so ill, we’re so glad to be his and his family’s friends.

We love you Skeezy. <3

    I’ve been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours nowadays, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful value sufficient for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the net will probably be much more helpful than ever before.

    we are also so vary sad. We has several FOS buttons in our house. The mom has not stopped leaking when she thinks about Skeezy and how hard it is for the FL and Mr TF and Mao and Tripper.

  8. Great post! We agree with Random Felines’ comment. Despite the tears being shed, our lives are better for knowing Skeezix.

    The news was shocking and I hope he can enjoy some quality of life while being made comfortable. Having personally gotten similar news about little Autumn, TW feels very very sad for him and his family. xoxox

    What a lovely tribute to your friend. We only met him recently and are saddened that he’ll be leaving us before we even get to know him. We’re praying. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

    Mum and I are terribly saddened by the news too. We also have FOS buttons and fridge magnets which we will always cherish. We hope very much that he and his family are able to get a lot more time together before he is called to the Bridge.
