Society of Feline Gardeners- Honoring Annie


Welcome furriends and Garden Society members.  I'm really sad today.  One of our very own members of the Society of Feline Gardeners has gone to The Bridge.  Sweet Annie, we will always remember you.

I'm going to spend the day on the couch instead of the garden.  I know I should be out there...but it's been dumping down rain for days...and it's soggy and yukky.

Grete and Bennette are also staying inside.

So is Cory...oh wait...she ALWAYS stays inside. 

Mom said that this week hasn't been totally filled with sad news.  Our little squirrel furriend that Daddy tried to save actually did alright staying in a cat carrier overnight.   Daddy was able to safely release Mr. Squirrel to the backyard where he promptly scurried WAY up a tree.  He did not chatter evil things at my dad for saving him, which makes him the least evil squirrel on the planet.

I also received my seeds from Renee's seeds in the mail!   It's still too soggy to plant, but I'll be ready to go once it dries out a bit.  I helped my mom with the order and we used code FR227A when checking out so that 25% of our order goes to support United Paws.

Hopefully I'll be back out in the garden next week, but until then, please go visit Annie's family and leave them some much needed purrs.

me and Fae are really sorry to hear about Annie.... :( glad that she is no longer in pain....

we're (or at least "i'm" anyway) happy to hear that the squirrel was alright. :) it's good to have at least some good news...

We are very sad to hear that Annie has gone to the Bridge. She has not been well, so at least she is not in pain and running free. Our thoughts are with the family. Losing a beloved pet is never easy.

SS is partial to squirrels, so she is happy to hear the Mr Squirrel is fine. I have never met one.

I think even the weather is sad about Annie. You are smart to stay inside.

Raymond and Busby said...

We were sad and surprised to read about Annie. We are purring for her at our house too.

On a lighter note, we are so glad your seeds arrived! We can't wait to hear what you ordered. We have some too and are eager to plant them!

Mr Puddy said...

Me and my mom is going to light the candle for Annie and watch the sky tonight.

Jonesie, I'm so happy with you Seeds from Renee. I think when the weather is better, you already ready to plant : )

Bennette, I sleep like that with my dad's butt. But I just wonder. Is Grete feel alright with you ? ...Look at her face !!!

Miss you guys lots

The weather suits the loss. But we are sure it will be better "tomorrow".

We are all very sad about Annie here - we stopped by their blog earlier today.

I am glad the squirrel is okay!

Hi Jonesie. It's a sad day wiv Annie passing to the Bridge. I didn't know until yoo told me in the comments ~ so thank yoo. I hot pawed it over to Annie's blog, and her mom's, and left messages. It's tragic but I am glad Annie isn't suffering ~ and I suspect Chumley and Annie are throwing their own garden party today at the bridge.

I'm glad the little squirrel survived ~ seems like he just needed some TLC and rest while he was vulnerable. Yoor dad probably saved his life so please fank him.

Love Alfie xx

That's a nice way to honor that sweet Annie, yes, we are sure sad here too. I am happy to hear that the not so evil squirrel made it!

Staying indoors is a good bet when it's cold and rainy. All of you look so nice and cozy. Sylvester wonders if Bennette is safe next to Grete's bottom?

How nice of you to honor Annie today, we miss her and we know her Mom does too, a lot.

So, some squirrels are less Evil?

We are very sad about Annie's passing. She fought a hard battle. We are glad she is healthy now and having a great time roaming in the garden over the bridge!

We are sorry to hear about Annie too.
Staying indoors is best when it keeps raining.

Boris is doing much better, thanks for your advice! I'm glad that squirrel made it out alive. Poor thing. We visited Annie's mum already.

Also, thanks for the purrs. Au ate again so we're hoping he's on an upswing. We really appreciate your support.
