Some of you already know, but yesterday the Woman's dad died; she's a little bit sad but she's not like wailing or anything, and tomorrow she and the Man are stuffing themselves into a giant lipstick tub and flying it to Texas so they can see her mom and sisters and six hundred sticky people (I think there are that many) and be there for the funeral.

So, Buddah and I aren't going to be visiting for the next few days. The Younger Human is going to come feed us and stuff, but he doesn't know where all our friends are, and I think I should be nice and not pester him, seeing as how he's going to be opening cans for me.

I never got to meet this Grandpa because of them living in Texas and us living just about everywhere else, but he was a good guy and he liked cats. In fact, if you're an introoder kitty in their 'hood, chances are you've bellied up to the buffet he and the Grandma put out on their back deck for all the kitties to enjoy. He used to feed the squirrels, too, but i don't hold that against him. ;)

If anyone wants to pop in on the sly for some THoE and to partake of some particularly awesome Nip, I think we can hide from the Other Dad. So come on over! We'll be celebrating life, and the joy of getting to have warm fuzzy feelings for others.

Stop barfing. I can be nice once in a while.

We hope the Woman and Man have a safe trip to Texas. It is very hot here. It is a sad time but we think the Woman knows how to celebrate her Dad's life!

But Max, you did meet the Grampa. Every time the Woman skritches your ears, every time she gave you good yums to eat, every time she sang to you, she learned from her dad. People don't just wake up one day and love animals. They watch and imitate those around them. The Woman had a good teacher. ANd now she had passed that love on to the Younger Human and he will do the same someday. I learned to love kitties from my grampa and now even my grand kids love animals. It's a special circle of fur love.

It sounds like your grandpa was a really neat guy. Celebrating life is a good way to honor him.

We are very sorry for the loss of yoru Grandpa. He was obviously a very cool dood and we think you would have liked him even more than you like your Man and Woman. Grandbeans are always more fun.
Take your time visiting around. We'll be here when you're ready.

Any Human who leaves the good fudz out for visitor kitties is a great Human in my book. I hope the trip is not too hard on the Woman. I'll purr for her.

Meanwhile, I'll be sure to drop by for a round of THoE, even though I have never really played with other kitties before! Watch out!

Glad you're celebrating life, and I hope the Woman isn't too sad. Purrrs
