The Tabby Team is now Two

In just eleven days our tabby family members have gone from four to only two.  How can that be possible?  We lost Cookie to heart failure June 18 and with great sadness we share our heartbreaking news about Moe.  

Moe has succumbed to widespread and incurable cancer, which he had kept hidden from us.  
He had lived with us and brought us immeasurable joy for fifteen years.  Our first kitty in fact.  It is going to be hard to adjust to life without him. 

For the moment we prefer to remember his days when he was healthy and enjoying his life.  We have many happy memories of better days.

Chase your dreams Moe, free of pain, and knowing how loved you were.  We are the richer for having you in our lives, although it will take your human beans a while to mend their broken hearts.

Sadly missed by mombean, dadbean, Mindy (his littermate) and Mike

I'm heartbroken for you. There aren't any words. All I can offer is to paraphrase someone's quote, that all the holes in our hearts are to let the Light shine in. May Moe's (and Cookie's) light shine on you and within you, always.

Hugs and soft purrs.

Kim, Nicki and Derry

I'm no cat, but I live with three of them and I know how sweet they are and that they're true members of the family. Moe looked like a great dude for his family and I know he will be missed, and so will Cookie. My heart goes out to you in this difficult time.

So very sorry that you had to let go of your sweet Moe. Sending Soft Pawkisses to comfort you <3 <3 <3

John Bellen said...

I read about Moe's passing on the Cat Blogosphere site and came over to offer my condolences. I hadn't known of Cookie's passing. If it is very hard to lose a friend, it must be much more than twice as hard to lose two in such a short time. However long they stay with us, it's never long enough. Godspeed, Cookie. Godspeed, Moe.
