Mancat Monday- Thank You


Mom Nancy here:
I just wanted to say a BIG Thank You to all you 
wonderful friends who have left so many kind
thoughtful and comforting messages while
Mickey was ill and when he went to the
Rainbow Bridge.
My head knows that it was time for him to go,
but my heart is sad.
He has been with me for 17 3/4years . 
We have been through good & bad times.
My best pal and companion.
I am happy that he is not sick anymore 
and is eating all the grass he can at the
Rainbow Bridge :)
It will take some time to get used to him
not being around and not seeing that 
sweet face when I come home from work.
I am glad for the other kitties. They will help
me deal with this loss. They are good kitties.
We will try to return your visits,especially 
those we have not met before.
Once again, this shows the tremendous support
 and friendship in the Cat Blogosphere!!!!
Again, THANK YOU !!

July 11,1993-March 11,2011

Thank you Zoolatry for this lovely graphic.

We are always astounded at the outpouring of kindness from the CB. It seems like just yesterday when we started finding other cats but really, it's been six years for us now. I can't believe how long it's been for some of our friends and we hate it when we loss any of them.

Brian said...

Purr and hugs to you. We know how the heart can hurt.

ABBY said...

We'll all be here for you, and even though we've only know Mickey since 2007 he filled our hearts too. Anytime we lose one of our own we each feel it and if we can be of any support to you we'll stand tall. We will keep you in our purrayers...


Sweet Praline said...

Purrs and headbutts to you. The CB is a wonderful place.

Mr Puddy said...

Daer Nancy,

I'm worst than Abby. I just know Mickey since last year. But I do feel connect with him in the good way. I just want you to know. I do love him. I purrs for you and I hope it do help you comfort in some way.

Love and Hugs to you and your family

A few Good Cats said...

When things are difficult, it is good to know that there are others who care. We're glad you know that so many humans have been there for you.

Lynx217 said...

We so sorry we weren't able to leave a comment sooner but as you know we're in the middle of a crisis ourselves with our boy. We think he's turned a corner but it's too soon to tell. Thank you for all your love through the years and we'll continue to spread it around, in Mickey's memory.

The Island Cats said...

In the Catblogosphere, when one of us loses a furbaby, it feels like we've all lost one.

Mickey was a special cat...loved by us all, but we think you already knew that.


Sparkle said...

Warm purrs to you - the Island Cats are right. In the Cat Blogosphere, it's all our loss too.

Carolyon said...

I am so sorry to hear about Mickey!

Purrs and smooches for you all

Tina T-P said...

I was so sorry to hear about Mickey - I know that all the support from the Cat Blogosphere is an enormous lift right now. Know that you are in all of our hearts. Tina (a friend of Misses Peach)

Cory said...

My mom is still getting leaky. Mickey was a special cat and the CB is an amazing place full of love and support.

Sending comforting purrs.

Raymond and Busby said...

We should all be thanking you for sharing Mickey with us. How lucky you were to be together nearly 18 years. xoxo

michico*Adan said...

We are all here.
And will pray for you as well, Nancy~~~

Big Big hugs and lots of love for you.

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Too share our lives with those we love is a dance not to be missed...we do pay a price for that leaves a kitty sized hole in all of our hearts.
We hold you close Nancy and take a good measure of comfort in knowing you are not alone...please hug all the furry girls for us at the sad cozy cottage

Nancy, I am glad we could be here for you.

Pierro said...

Most of us here have now suffered the shock of losing that special beloved kitty.
There was a very special bond with you and Mickey. He adored you -- and yes, I think that deep sorrow is felt from them as well, when they know it is so hard for them to do anything, and most of all to be your love tiger.

I think losing Mickey is probably a lot like when I lost Caesar.
There was so much fun, and so many good times together - and you are right, the bad times too. - Caesar and Princess were like little nurses. They were that litle bit of hope that we could cling to when our worlds were falling apart. So many times and all they wanted to do was be close and love us.

Mickey will always be with you. Caesar is still here with me, I feel him - and he sent me Pierro

Oh Nancy, you are loved. I am hugging you from afar.
Go slowly, and take good care of yourself.

love and bonks

When you have shared for so long with a special friend, it is so very hard to see him go. Mickey will always fill your heart with love

Ginger Jasper said...

It is so hard to let your beloved go but you gave the ultimate gift of all and knew when he had enough and let him go. Your heart will be so sad and it will take time to heal. Remember all the lovely memories and know that your beloved Mickey is now pain free and playing at the bridge.. Hugs GJ xx

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh Nancy I am so so sorry for your loss of sweet Mickey! We have been offline for a few days and were just so sad to see that Mickey had to go to the bridge! We know he is up there with all the kitties who went before (including our boy Floyd) and they are showing him that it will be ok, and he will be there with you in your heart always. And we are sure he will be watching over you too - to make sure you will all be ok. We are sending you tons and tons of comforting purrs and prayers!

SuziQCat said...

So sorry to hear about the passing of Mickey. I know he will be in your heart forever. I am sending purrs to you as you adjust to this new life with a friend.

catsynth said...

We're glad to be here for you, and we will always remember Mickey. 17 3/4 years is a long relationship, even by human standards, and can only imagine the loss.

We of course hope that we'll continue to hear from you and all the other kitties and count you amongst our friends!

ABBY said...

WE had to stop by today...we will surely miss Mickey's Musings each Monday and we just felt that we had to let you know we were thinking of you and missing him too.


William said...

Purrs to your all, and especially your mom. ♥

The Misadventures Of Me said...

It seems when a cat blogger losses a furry child, we all lose that child. The CB is a wonderful place and everyone is genuine with their feelings when it comes to our furry ones. We'll always be there for one another.

We hope your other kitties will give you lots of cuddles and help with your grief. I have added beautiful Mickey to my "friends at the bridge" tab on my blog. He will be missed by so many!

meowmeowmans said...

Having just lost our Maggie, we understand a little of what you must be going through. We'd like to think Mickey and Maggie are having fun together at the Bridge. :)

We know your other kitties will give you lots of snuggles and love to comfort you. We are purring and praying for you all.


The Meezers or Billy said...

::headbutts:: and {{{{HUGS}}} to you MomNancy from all of us and MeezerMom too!

Jacqueline said...

Sending you big hugs and loud purrs, Nancy; we added Ann's lovely graphic of your precious Mickey to our sidebar last weekend=he was really a beautiful boy...Always loved, forever cherished, never forgotten...xoxo...J, Calle, Halle, Sukki

Admiral Hestorb said...

Precious Mickey went straight to me heart. I wept when I learned of his illness and oh, I cried when he went to the Bridge. Sometimes other babies just crowd right on into my heart along with my own girl :-) Mickey did.

HubbleSpacePaws said...

We're still purring for your family. Even in the natural course, it is difficult to adjust to life without those you love. Even when you know it will be but a blink in time before you are reunited.

We weren't blessed to know Mickey but, as many strangers did at our time of grief, we came through the cat blogosphere to join you in celebrating his life and your love.

Our little intertube community has been a source of joy and strength for us. May it be the same for you. Pax.

dennis said...

Dennis says of all the other blog's cats out there, Mickey was her favorite cat. 100% favorite. Mickey was special because he was beautiful and we feel sad that Mickey has gone away. But Mickey had a wonderful life. Dennis says it is easy to be a cat when you have a lovely wonderful kind human to love you.

Mickey is with my recent loss, and they were very alike, those boys. Sweet and gentle cats, very much their own person. Mickey knew what he loved, and what he loved most was YOU. he's still around, he's not completely gone.

Anita said...

I´m so sorry for your lost... :´(

I have come to visit you when I have found out. he rests in the bridge with all the beings that we love now...

(((((((HUGS))))))) and purrrrrayers...

I can´t believe it... :´(
