We haven’t done Photo Hunters in awhile.  But this week’s theme is “In Memory” and we wanted to participate so we could pay tribute to the ones that came before us.


This is Bogart who was mom’s first cat after she finished college and was living on her own.  None of us ever met Bogart.  He went to the Rainbow Bridge in December 2001 at the age of 20 1/2.  Mom still misses him….


This is Scooter.  We’ve posted about Scooter before.  Scooter was the original Island Cat.  I’m the only one who knew Scooter.  Ernie and Zoey weren’t here when he lived on the Island.  He was a lot older than me and I learned a lot from him…like how to be a proper Island Cat.  Scooter went to the Rainbow Bridge in January 2006 just shy of his 17th birthday.


Here’s a picture of me and Scooter.  He always acted like he didn’t like me…but I know deep down he really did.  I miss Scooter…and I know mom does too.

We know Bogart and Scooter are playing together at the Bridge, waiting for that day when we see them again….

  1. I am sure they are watching over all of you and helping you throughout your day. Those were some lovely pictures of those who came before you…

  2. Sometimes when my mom picks me up I look over her shoulder or off to the side at what seems to be nothing…and she asks me who is there, who do I see? The Bridge Angels do come by and check on us, but moms and dads have too many filters on to see them. I’m sure Bogart and Scooter still check in to make sure everything is ok and they’ll all be waiting at the Bridge.

  3. Those all look like nice cats. Thanks for sharing your memories.

  25. What a lovely post. It’s good to remember the ones before us. Thank you for sharing.

  26. I’m a little late checking in here. With Mom being gone until Sunday, I missed so many blogs! And since she’s trying to recover from all the excitement of her trip, I’m still missing blogs!

    I never met Bogart or Scooter, but I know my Mom did. She remembers when your Mom lived in the other little house.

    I like to remember Grady and Mom thinks we should do a memory post about him sometime.
