Good-Bye Friend Eric

Momma was so thrilled to have met Fat Eric’s Momma just a few weeks ago.   Eric was doing well that weekend, although Cheysuli had just gotten sick.   Then Fat Eric (who is no longer real fat) stopped eating at the cattery.  They found cancer.   His Momma had to make the decision to let him go from thousands of miles away.  It makes Momma just want to cry for her that she did not get to give him one last hug.

I know, we all know, that Eric knew how adored he was.   He is no doubt enjoying the world across the Bridge.   Please tell Eric’s family that you are thinking of them.


  1. I just read about it on Facebook and am so, so bummed out. Fat Eric was awesome…so awesome that no matter how not fat he got, he was ALWAYS gonna be Fat Eric. Dammit.

  2. We’re all teary thinking of his mom and what she must be going through now.

  3. We are so sad for his Mom being away, too!! Purrrrrs and hugsss to her!!
    Your TX furiends,

  4. How very sad for Eric’s Mom, to have to make that decision while she was far away. Fly free, sweet Eric! Cancer has no power over you any longer.

  5. RIP, sweet Eric. Run free at the Bridge.
