Hi, everybuddy!  Ernie here.
Today’s not such an easy day…


Our cousin Rusty went to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday
and we’re very sad.

  Rusty lived a long, happy life…nearly 20 years!!

  We know he’s at the Bridge
playing with his brother Grady once again.
But we’re gonna miss him.

Godspeed, Rusty!

  28. It is always hard when a kitty has to go to the bridge, but Rusty and his family were so fortunate to have such a long and happy time together! My Human had one of her kitties for almost 20 years too…I am sure BooBoo was there to greet Rusty with a little paw swipe. She was kind of bad-tempered, MOL! The Human thinks that’s prolly why she lived so long!
