House of Sads

Today I am having the Sads. The whole house has the Sads. The Food Dude has the Sads. The Food Lady has the Gigantic Sads. Her eyes have been leaking all day. It is a sads time.

We are all having The Sads because one of the most famous and best cats in the entire universe had to go to the Rainbow Bridge a few days ago - Rocky the Gutter Cat. I did not know Rocky personally but my beans did and they loved him very, very much. That is why they have the leaky eyes. They told me I wouldn't have a blog if not for Rocky. So I am feeling sad along with them.

The beans told me that Rocky was the very special friend of Halloween The Cat. This is a picture of Halloween. She lived in this house before me and she was here for many years. The beans loved her very, very much too. Sometimes I can smell her around the house. Halloween was one of Rocky's spicy vixens. Halloween went to the Bridge a while before I came to live here. Rocky and Halloween were so close, so the beans have the Sads thinking about Halloween too. But they told me Halloween was waiting right on the other side of the Bridge to welcome Rocky and take good care of him. Here is a picture of Halloween taken at Christmas last year. She was a very pretty cat. She talked alot. She is talking in this picture!

This is Halloween sleeping under last year's Christmas tree. The beans were going to use this picture for a Christmas card this year but the Food Lady said it would make her miss Halloween too much if she had to sign her name on lots and lots of cards and see her missing kitty under the tree. So instead we will have her on the blog and everyone can remember what a sweet cat she was. I am having the sads along with the beans, but tomorrow I will try to make them happy beans again. I hope you will stop by Rocky's blog if you haven't already and let his family know you share their sorrow.


  1. Jackpot, our Mommy misses Rocky too. She wes reading his blog many years ago...he was the Original ManCat. It's OK to have the sads when we remember our loved ones who have crossed before us.

  2. We were sad when we heard about Rocky too. We remember Halloween and we enjoyed visiting her and hearing all her stories. We're sure Halloween was there to meet Rocky. It's sad that they are no longer here with us, but it's nice to know they are playing togehter at the Bridge.

  3. My FL ixplaned to me today abowt Rocky goin' to the Bridge. I didn't even see him leeve. So I've got the sads, just like yoo.

    Thank yoo fur riting such a nice thing abowt Rocky. He was a good mancat and he wuz my frend. And Halloween wuz one of his favoritest spicy vixins. I think this is whut yoo call the end of an era.
