Asta, thank you so much for coming to comment about Bonnie. Doing CCCSI together, she learned to like and respect you, and that's saying a lot for a cat who hissed at everyone! We are terribly sorry about your own family loss. With time, our sadness and pain will ease, leaving happy memories. Victor will look for you at the luau. Oh, and it's hugging holiday: ((hugs))
Jen & Victor

Sassy Kat said...

It was so much seeing our sissy at the bachelor party today. You sure can dance that Hawaiian dance really good! You taught us a few moves that we didn't know about. So much fun we had. It was a good day and a day to remember those that went to the bridge. That was a nice tribute that Opus and Roscoe gave.
Take care sweet sissy.
Sassy & Momo

I think this is JUST what you needed Asta. You earned a fabulous party after all the support you have been giving. We can't wait for the skating party!

Koobuss said...

What a terrific Hawaii pawty for Opus and Roscoe! Looks like great fun!

Can't wait for Opal and Pearl's skating pawty. Hope I don't come home like my mom did when she was skating on her 10th birthday years ago. She fell and broke both her arms!! Had two casts on for 6 weeks. What fun that was! But that was her. I'm a much better skater than she is. I have built-in four wheel drive. Hehehehe.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Sassy Kat said...
