Very sorrowful day

Everyone at my house is very sad today. This morning one of our kitties, 5 1/2 year old Macchio, died suddenly. We're pretty sure his heart wasn't good and it just finally gave out.

He was a very cool kitty and taught all of us dogs, plus all the foster dogs, how to play carefully with kitties. He was never afraid of dogs and he didn't put up with any shenanigans from us either.

He was a snuggler and often naughty (He broke many mugs and glasses by pushing them off the counters). He brought a lot of joy to our house and we will miss him terribly.

He is at the Rainbow Bridge now Pippin and will have good times. He was lucky that he had some good time with you though. I have had kitty sibs go to the Rainbow Bridge and I always feel really really sad but then I remember what they contributed to the family group and feel better. Be sure to give your mom & dad lots of hugs & kisses to help them over their sorrow.

Hi Pip, sorry about the loss of your kitty. It is hard to lose a friend. I still miss Louie and we used to fight! But as someone else said he will be waiting for you at the rainbow bridge. You'll see him again.
