Celebrating Pete Cusack - the Creator of Tomcat Commentary by Tim



Pete Cusack, one of my favorite Cat Dads, passed over the Rainbow Bridge on November 20, 2021.  Today, January 31st, would have been his 69th birthday. This post is a tribute to Pete's genuine love of all things feline.

I always looked forward to Tuesdays with Tim. Timmy Tomcat was the Face and Meow over at Tomcat Commentary by Tim. When I got the heartbreaking news that Pete Cusack had passed away, it truly hurt my heart to know I'd never again read one of his funny blog posts. He had such heart and love for his cats, and honestly for everyone else's cats too. Just read the side bars of his TomCat Commentary by Tim blog and you will agree, he celebrated every cat friend he ever made.

His blog now stands as a testimonial for us to remember him by.

In August 2021 Wonderpurr Life hosted the 1st Annual Golden AssRabbit Awards. One of the entries was Rumpy Bump Stumpsnot. Thanks to Pete's humor, Rumpy tied for the Naughty but Nice category. Please see his blog post here Tomcat Commentary by Tim  where Rumpy got his award prizes.

I adored his humor and kindness. He will be greatly missed by all of us who have loved and laughed with him through the years. Below is a very early "Cat-toon" Pete posted on his Facebook page with his Heart Cat, Tim. You can see the genuine love man and cat had for each other.


The following are posts Pete wrote about Timmy and Buddy Budd.

Pete loved to blog, but he lost interest in his Facebook account way back in 2012. However I found his last post on February 10, 2012 to be about adopting Mr. Buttons. As always, Pete's love for the underdog um... cat... shined with every click of the keyboard.


You were worth listening to Pete.

Before I close, I wanted to share another blog Pete had. It seemed more like a test blog, but he wrote three interesting posts that delved deep into who Pete was as a man. Click the links to read entire post.

Beginning Life Anew!

To all of my friends where ever they may be including those I have yet to meet.

I am going to lay out an exciting pastime. A interactive game of life and living. All can participate. It will be real fun as we will see some curious things about our minds. This knowledge relates to living a fuller life, as it unfolds, with a sharper clarity. Some of this will be difficult to grasp. Harder to use. Not due to being challenging as subject matter, but, that life and living can impede clear life and living.

Material Connections and Detachment

Much of the talk when speaking about meditation centers around the material world and detaching from it. This is a great stumbling block for many. Lets take a look at what is meant by material and what it means to us.
I have material attachment. I would be lying if I said other wise. The question is not whether you have, or do not have some sort of connection to the corporeal. It is a given. To live in this material plane we must use services, partake of nourishment and use it for energy. We inhale. We exhale. We partake of the oxygen in the air and put out carbon dioxide as our bodies use the food we eat to create stored chemical energy. This stored energy gives action to our muscles.

Return to Never Left

Having some touch of understanding I am obligated to give to all sentient beings, or, at least, make the attempt. That said I keep returning to a vexing question; living in the world means that you must have material to sustain the body, therefore, the body needs to gain material in the manner of the world.

If the desire is to give freely then one can be disinclined to doing or giving as business.

A truth under all this is that the persons I would be inclined to give freely too may see a gift freely given as without real worth. This is the world.

I need to increase how I give but the work takes material. I must move closer to material for a time so to have material to do works.

This is the duty and responsibility of having life.

Pete is survived by his four fur kids, Miss Fitz, Rumpy, Toby and Einstein. 
Thank you for all you did for the kitties. It made a difference. 
Rest in Peace, Pete.

Dogs Are Overrated - a Wonderpurr Cattoon

 

\
Today's Wonderpurr Cat-toon features Opie and Jack, known for having the bromance of the century. There isn't another couple among the Wonderpurr Gang who cuddles like these two. Typically their discussions on Life are done in S.T.T. aka Sekret Tabby Talk. However, I asked Dori to translate and she was kind enough to oblige for the sake of art. And extra "tweats." Hope you enjoy.

Bionic Basil's Amber Reviews Finding Mya


https://bionicbasil.blogspot.com/p/ambers-book-reviews-page.html

Everyone in the "Know" knows the lovely Amber from Bionic Basil's B-Team does an EPIC job of reviewing books, all with cats in them.

Who doesn't love to read books with cats in them? Especially books where the cat is a major player, and not just a artistic flourish on the cover of a mystery novel.

We at Wonderpurr.com invited Amber to host our BEACH READS feature, and joyfully she meow'd "Yes!" If you care to read all of Amber's book reviews, please paw her photo to the left.

For our BEACH READS selection, the featured novels will be listed below. Please paw the link to the corresponding novel to enjoy Amber's recommendation for your reading enjoyment, any time of the year.

Seriously! If it's cold, rainy or blizzardly, why not spread a blanket under a lamp, grab a cool drink and put on sunglasses while you enjoy a great read.

My Mew Year's Resolution



Hi evfurrybuddy, it's me Dori! *wavy paws* 

Do yoo make rezzylooshuns? Us cats are not prone to planning ahead, especially committing to something that is supposed to last all year long. However, I am making a special rezzylooshun in the case of my brofur, Wabbit.

Yoo see, my welationship wif Wabbit has finally peaked, and we are taking a bweak.

I showed just how unhappy I am about being Wabbit's play toy the other night when I marched up to the couch and turned my tail to it. Momma saw me and gasped with disbelief! It was only a slight spray, but it made a huge impression. Momma consulted Dr Google and he said stwess was the main reason I spwayed.
