Finally Friday - Day of Hugs and Happy Purrfday

SAMMY

We was gonna post pikshurs of us opening pakages we gotted from Grr,Midnight and cocoa, and also Skeeter, LC and Ayla, but we would just like to take a few minutes to say a few werds to our furriends.

Losing our furriend Bonnie yesterday was completely heartbreaking. We said in our last post how special Bonnie was to us, and how she and her family made our mommy feel so good by just giving some fleece blankies to Trixie and Norton to make them feel comfortable in their final days and weeks. It was our first experience with how wonderful and caring the people and kitties of the cat blogosphere truly are.

We wish that there was something special we could do for Bonnie's family to let them know what they have meant to us, but we didn't know, so we just decided to put it out there for them to see when they feel like visiting the blogs.

We just want to say that we love all of you in the blogosphere, you have been more than kind to us during our hard times. we have shared joy and sorrow with each other and we are very proud to be part of such a caring community.

Losing a friend like Bonnie so suddenly made us realize that we can never say Thank you or We Love You All often enough.

A year or so ago, we had a Day of Hugs due to an unfortunate circumstance, and we all felt that we needed to heal. We propose that we have another Day of Hugs, not to heal but to appreciate each other.

So, here is our HUG to all of you. Now go hug someone!!!

Derby said...

Ummm, how about a weekend of hugs? I think so, a holiday of hugs!

Samantha & Tigger said...

Your FL furiends,

PB & J said...

What a wonderful post - the Cat Blogosphere is in deed a wonderful thing!

We're off to give hugs all around!

China Cat said...

Willow and I just heard about your idea of hugs at the Chatzy Room tonight and a weekend of hugs is brilliant.

{{{{{hugs}}}}} to you, my friends!!!

Purrrrrrs, China Cat

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Hugs to you as well. The woman started blogging about Gemini a few years back in the summer and Kukka Maria came by and left a snarky comment! Then we found you guys--because after all how could we resist Meezer Tails when we loved Siamese? So we consider you guys some of the first cat blogosphere cats we knew and why I blog (and not my human).

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

(((((((hugs)))))) attack hug in honor of Bonnie, the attack tabby! Huh you say, what's an attack hug...well, you just run up, throw your paws around somecat and HUG!We love you guys!

ML said...

What a wonderful idea... a Day of Hugs. I'm going to steal, er, borrow your idea.
We are heartbroken at the loss of Bonnie, hug attacks will be a great way to honor her.
And thank you so much for the wonderful birthday graphic and greetings. Just remember, I am in the decrement mode.
ML

Max said...

I am so stunned about Bonnie. I didn't get to get online all day and just found out a little while ago. This hurts.

If I were the hugging kind, I'd hug you guys. You're totally awesome kitties and the blogosphere would suck without you. On days it didn't suck, it would blow. Stay healthy, cause I selfishly can't lose anymore friends.

Aoise said...

I am sending huggies too to all of you from here in the yoo kay. They are winging their way ofer the sea even as I paw this message.

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

I just LOVE that hugging gif. I will put it on my bloggie. You two are such great meezer friends. I certainly agree with you that the cat blogosphere is so loving and supportive. I am honored to have such special and lovely friends
I will nver forget your kindness when my brother Caesar died. It was a horrible time, so now we know your suffering when your Trixie and Norton went to the bridge. There is no more pain and sadness than losing our sweet babies.

purrrs to all of you sweet guys
