Good bye

It's been such a long time since I've been able to blog for the kitties. I've felt guilty about it for ages. It was getting hard after my dad died to find the joy in blogging and then when I moved back out to California, leaving my beloved PB&J behind in Michigan, it made it even harder. I would check in on the blog from time to time and see all the lovely comments, but just never took the time to respond. For all those reasons I needed to say good bye, but I never took the time.

But now there is a real reason, we've lost the J in PB&J. Jake died this morning at 4:30.

He came in from his midnight romp in the garden with Pearl and Bert, had his treats and fell over with what the doctor assumes was a blood clot.

He died quickly and hopefully easily and was with his Daddy who was his most favorite person in the world - it's all we could ask for really.

Now he'll be cremated and laid to rest with the original P & B. His first brother and sister and the cats that raised him from the wee three week old kitten he was when I found him on a street 9 years ago.

So now it's time to say good bye to my lovely Maine Coon ManCat Jake and good bye to all of you wonderful Cat Bloggers. It has been a wonderful journey filled with great friends and fun - I loved laughing and crying with you all.

Thank you so much,
Mom Amanda, Pearl and Bert
