Hi everybuddy. I’m glad this thing is called a Scratch Lounge because today I wanna do more lounging than scratching.
That’s because today is Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day…a day created by our friend Deb Barnes from The Chronicles of Zee and Zoey in memory of her special cat Mr. Jazz. It’s a day we remember those that have come before us and have left for the Rainbow Bridge.
Today we wanna remember the Island Cats of the past…
This is Bogart. He was the mom’s first cat after she graduated from college and was living on her own. None of us ever got to meet Bogart. Though he never actually lived on the island, we have made him an honorary Island Cat.
Bogart went to the Bridge in December 2001 at the age of 20 1/2. Even though he’s been gone a long time, the mom still misses him.
This is Scooter…aka ScooterCat. We’ve posted about Scooter before. He was the original Island Cat. Me and Zoey never knew Scooter…only Wally did. Wally says he was a pretty cool cat and taught him lots of stuff. I wish I coulda met him.
Scooter went to the Rainbow Bridge in January 2006 just shy of his 17th birthday.
Scooter and Bogart may be gone….but they are never forgotten…and they will always be loved.
