Today we’re turning the Cat Blogosphere pink in memory of cat blogging icon and our furiend, Skeezix, who left for the Rainbow Bridge last week…waaaay too soon, if you ask me.

Now, I don’t usually do pink…I leave that for the girlcats or my pal, Spitty.  But pink was Skeezix’s color and nobuddy rocked it better than him.  So, to honor Skeezix, I borrowed Zoey’s pink shades and found me some psychedelic pink background.  Yeah, I know…I just don’t do pink as well as Skeez did it.


For those of you who didn’t know Skeezix, he was one of the very first blogging cats…a trailblazer in the Cat Blogosphere.  And he was the original Feline Fashionista, proving to everybuddy that real mancats can wear pink.  His modeling skills were only surpassed by his favorite girlcat…Daisy the Curly Cat.

Some of my favorite memories of Skeezix are his stroller walks with the Food Lady…and how he was always on the lookout for vishus deers.  He was one of a kind, that’s for sure.

Hey, Skeez…our world’s a little less pink now that you’re gone…and the Rainbow Bridge is a lot pinker now…we miss you, buddy.

  38. We like a mancat who feels comfortable in pink. Skeezix will be missed.

  39. We really didn’t know Skeezix, but he was very well loved and that was a very nice tribute. We aren’t too sure about the pink background, Wally, a nice blue would be a better choice for you.

  40. Woo-hoo! You are rockin’ those shades, my Man! I wish I had known Skeezix! And you know, I think he and his peeps even lived in the Bay Area from some of the comments I’ve seen.

  41. You sure know how rock the pink, Wally!!!

  46. Excellent tribute, Wally. Excellent.

  47. Lovely. I bet he’ll be rocking pink on the bridge!

  48. Oh, and thanks for the shout-out! PS: I think blue is more your color Wally. Pink and orange? Not the best combo. You should let Ernie have the Pink Stuff.

  49. ALlie: *sighhhh* True, soooo true. He was a Master at PINK.

  50. That was a fabulous tribute to Skeezix, Wally! Love your pink, it is awesome!
