Fractious Fierce Fighter Day


Today is Fierce Fighter Day. For now, scroll down or click here to see the baby pictures of us and the WCB post, tomorrow the baby picture/WCB post will be bumped to the top.

Today is a day of remembering those who came before. Texas was Mom and Dad's first cat together (Momma had never had a cat before, and Daddy had had lots of outdoor cats but no indoor ones). Texas was definitely a fierce fighter. He ended up in his Momma C's garage as about 1 year old, he just wandered in one day, skinny and alone. Momma C took really really good care of him, and made him a fat little kitty. About 2 years later, in October 2006, Momma C had to move and she couldn't take Texas with her. So she put an ad on the posting board at work, and our Mommy got Texie. AND our Mommy and Daddy became good friends with his Momma C and Almost-Dad! How cool is that?!

Unfortunately, Texas got lymphoma in March of 2008. He was very very fierce. He didn't like the treatments, and would bite and hiss at the nice people at the Oncologist's office, and they would tell Mommy he was very fractious! He fought very very hard though and went into remission for a while, but the cancer came back in September of this year, and he was unable to walk well. He was helped over the bridge September 3, 2008. We never met him alive, but his spirit is in our Beans so much that we can feel him some times! Texas, we want to turn into big strong fierce kitties just like you! Mom and Dad love you very much and miss you!



Lastly, we want to take a moment to remember all the other kitties that have gone. There are unfortunately too many to list here, but you can see a list here. We want to especially remember Storm, however. Her Meowmie was a member of the Feline Lymphoma Support Group, and Storm had just came out of remission around the time Texas was beginning treatment. Mom and Texas read Storm's blog every day and purred and prayed for her. She passed away in June, and our MomBean is still quite sad about that. Texas got to meet her though when he went to the bridge, and he told our MomBean she is a very very nice kitty indeed! Please stop by her brother Castle's blog today and send him a purr of rememberance if you are so inclined.

We never knew the wonderful Texas because we came to the cat blogosphere after he took his journey over the rainbow bridge....we really missed out on getting the know him.

We have given you an award, so when you get the chance, stop by sometime and pick it up, ok!

Texas was one of the first kitties I met when I came on the cat blog and followed his progress with much interest. I am glad he is happy and healthy at the Rainbow Bridge now.
