Friday Guest Cat Blogging

Got an email from a friend and long time commenter here about her cat Binx:

Chris, I know you haven’t done this for awhile but I was hoping you’d do a Friday guest cat blog post in Binx’s honor.

This weekend Binx passed away in my arms under the care of our vet in our home. We found out last week that he had an aggressive cancer, and it quickly took his mobility. Even though his last day was full of sadness, it was also a really nice day full of treats, snuggles, delicious mango, warm blankets, naps in the sun, and so much love.

We are so blessed to have had in him our lives for so long (19 years!). Sleep well my sweet kitty. You’ll always be a part of our family, and our hearts.


Friday Guest Cat Blogging

Thanks to Ninabi for today’s guest cat of honor:

Hi Chris-
I wanted to share a picture of Chief- I was wondering if he could be a guest cat on your blog.

A friendly tabby cat appeared at the doorstep of my husband’s aunt and uncle years ago. Every day, he showed up for petting, ear scratches, laps. He didn’t appear thin so they never gave him food figuring he had an owner, but they did give him lots and lots of love and attention.

They were finally able to identity of the cat’s owners, indifferent people who let the cat fend for himself outdoors in mountain lion and coyote territory.
To their surprise, found out that for years, Chief had walked two miles one way- to eat out of his bowl of dry food- then hike back, even through deep snow, to be with the people he loved.

When he was found to be suffering from a serious sinus infection, our relatives begged the owners to give Chief to them so they could get him medical attention and they finally agreed.

Chief lived a life of luxury these past 2 1/2 years, in a warm house close to the people he chose. He was old and his days of long walks were behind him.

Walking two miles every day for love over food says something about this cat.

A massive tumor was found yesterday and they are going to ease his pain today.

I still can’t believe this incredible cat made a long trip every day, for love.

Thanks to Paulo for supplying the fur for today’s cat blogging:

I would first like to sincerily thank you for hosting the best blog ever.

These are pics of the two little devils me and my wife adopted; they where born in a rainy day of march, in subtropical Brazil. Fatty “Mafia Don” Chico and furry Magali are brother and sister.
