Today is the 2nd annual Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day…started by our friend, Deb from The Chronicles of Zee and Zoey in memory of her special cat, Mr. Jazz.  It’s a day we remember and pay tribute to those that came before and are no longer with us.

Scooter and Wally sleepy selfie

It’s also Selfie Sunday…so in honor of that and Remembrance Day, we’re sharing this “sleepy selfie” of Scooter…the cat who came before us…and Wally when he was just a little cat.

We’ve talked about Scooter before. He’s the original Island Cat…even before we had our blog, we were called Island Cats…and it all began with Scooter. It’s hard to believe he’s been gone for 10 years now. Wally is the only one of us that actually knew Scooter, but we still feel his presence here.

Scooter may be gone…but he is never forgotten…and he will always be loved.
