Tabby Tuesday: In Honor of Smarty Pants Kaika

IMG_4367smWe are very sad today.

We all laugh about Smarty Pants Katie but it was really Mao who coined the phrase for our friend ‘Kaika.

Mama and ‘Kaika’s mama became friends on Facebook. Like many other cat people Mama has met online, Kaika’s Mama is someone she feels very intune with. She loves hearing what she is up to. They comment on posts back and forth. Mama has asked her questions when she doesn’t know the answer to something. It was ‘Kaika’s Mama who found a shaman to talk to Ichiro and he is doing so much better. We can’t say how much we appreciate that.

‘Kaika was diagnosed with FIP this week and he has crossed the Bridge. ‘Kaika was on Catster with Skeezix and Mao. We used to link to his page but things have changed at Catster and we can’t even do a search although we heard that they had suspended their plan to delete all the cat pages.

We will however share this link with his Mama so she knows how many people ‘Kaika touched just by being a smarty pants. That’s me having a bit of grass, while pondering what might be across the Bridge, even though I am young, you never know when you might have to cross. We will sing tonight for ‘Kaika so that he finds his way to the best catnip and the best napping places, while meeting all our friends that we miss so much.

This is particularly sad for Mama as her really good friend in Bend just lost her beloved Pekoe not two weeks ago. She knows how much both cats meant to their owners and how sad both must be.

    Oh, Miss Gemini, such a lovely, comforting post. I am very touched, thank you. Your Mama is a good friend, and I know ‘Kaika is listening for your song. He will be watching out for all of you kitty friends from the Bridge.
