I always looked forward to Tuesdays with Tim. Timmy Tomcat was the Face and Meow over at Tomcat Commentary by Tim. Yesterday I got the heartbreaking news that his daddy, Pete Cusack, had passed away on November 20th. And it does hurt my heart to know I'll never again read one of his funny blog posts. He had such heart and love for his cats. His blog now stands as a testimonial for us to remember him by.
That last thought stuck in my head yesterday, thinking about how, at any given time, I could pass and leave behind not only eleventy-billion cats, but also my blog as a remembrance to my life here among the cat bloggers. I know of several cat bloggers who have passed, and yes from time to time I return to remind myself that a single post can live in the hearts of those who knew me, albeit via the blogger world.
This past August we at Wonderpurr Life hosted the 1st Annual Golden AssRabbit Awards. One of the entries was Rumpy Bump Stumpsnot, by Pete Cusack, supreme cat dad for Tomcat Commentary by Tim.
I adored his humor and kindness. He will be greatly missed. Not only by his family and his furkids, but also by all of us who have loved and laughed with him through the years. In his honor I am posting his humorous entry to our contest.Thanks to Pete's humor, Rumpy tied for Naughty but Nice category. Please see his blog link above where Rumpy got his award prizes.
So, Dad was reading, and I was sleeping. I awoke feeling kindly towards my kin. I proceeded to visit Ms Fitz. I stood (Dad says I was Looming. Can you imagine? Looming MOL) over her but she was sound asleep. I prodded her, very gently I may add, whereupon she took offense, stood, and proceeded to give me her quick paw jab. OK, maybe 3 as they are super-fast. Really rude right! But she is a lightweight, me a heavyweight. Two whaps and it's over, she turns tail and... I mean she leaves.
Dad: "Rumpy that's not what happened. You just walked around the bed whapping everyone in turn! You are an Ass-Hat"
Rumpy: Ahh, but my version has Panache! O old one! MOL!
