Those plans have been altered a little as we, like many in the cat blogosphere, were saddened to hear the news from Miss Ellen, the human of the cats at the blog 15 and Meowing.
Stinky had been dealing with some medical issues and her family was worried even as the vet did all they could to help.
Alas, Stinky went to Rainbow Bridge yesterday morning and we send our purrs and purrayers to everyone at this sad news.
As readers know the gang and their human have been encouragers of our work and frequently were linked in the Carnival of the Cats.
Daddy Kiril joins us in sending condolences as well.
With the input of Stinky and the rest of the gang, no doubt, Miss Ellen surprised Daddy Kiril and us by sending us some of her special catnip crocheted toys for cats, a cute tiny red hat, and a feather wand toy.
We hope that the photos that follow bring smiles to their faces, in the days that follow, as they deal with the loss of Stinky.
We thank them so very much and, as you can see, their kind gifts are a big hit around here, though daddy still has not succeeded in talking any of us into wearing the hat, hee, hee!
We apologize for the quality of some of the photos.... Since daddy is unable to get a new camera we are stuck with the cell phone and it is not always up to the challenge.
