Farewell Cookie


Last week we said goodbye to Cookie





He died of heart failure, June 13, 2016, after living with his condition for a very long time.  He was also a cancer survivor - and then he went blind five years ago.   He lived to be 19 years, at least we estimate that he was about that age.  None of us know his beginnings in life and he didn't share them with us, as he simply lived in the moment.  He had spent his last nine years happily with all of us and we miss him.

We will share some of the good times we had with Cookie over the years.

He was very helpful when TeamTabby was working on a blogpost.
He made sure we posted pictures of all of us and of course snoopervised while our mombean got the 'news' typed and ready to send.

Cookie in the office chair - if you are supervising the posts - where else would one be?

Cookie's favorite room was the office.


He really liked this pink rug, says it gave him the most comfy nap spot.

 In the dining room where he could watch all the proceedings.....or is that his opportunities?

 Do any of you like to get up on top of the refrigerator?


We miss you lots, Cookie.  We know, as you crossed the "Rainbow Bridge" you had lots of furriends and your furrcousin angels, waiting to greet you.
Always in our hearts

Purrs and love from,
Moe
Mindy
Mike 
dadbean, and mombean Nina

Thank you Zoolatry
for this lovely graphic in remembrance of Cookie

Cookie had a great long life with you. So very sorry he had to leave this earth. I know our gang met him at the bridge to show him the ropes. He lives on in the hearts of all of us who knew and loved him. Sending love and light to you in this loss.

Having lost an older cat to heart failure following a long illness and a young cat to a very sudden blood clot, I know how heartbreaking this disease is. Cookie had a wonderfully long life with you, but we just never have long enough with them, do we? I'm so sorry for your loss.
