I went to visit The Mows today, and Jay has been putting up strips all day that explains what happened to Tigey. The Woman says that's pretty much what happened to The Cat Who Came Before Me--her name was Dusty--but they had Dusty for a whole year after they found out what was wrong with her before she died.
I think it's very kind of Jay to take the time to explain to everyone what happened, and I'm still sending some kitty mojo for him and his family. And I'm happy he still has Indy and Noni, because what would life be for People if they didn't have us cats???
