I is very sad because another good buddy, @PiruloFurry, crossed the rainbow bridge suddenly yesterday. Pirulo was only 8 1/2 years old, and they think he had a heart attack during the night Monday evening. He was fine when the family went to bed, but didn't wake up the next morning. We are numb here and still in shock after hearing the news yesterday afternoon. Such a bootiful boy, who left us way before his time. Our hearts go out to his family and to "The Other One," as Pirulo called the lady upstairs, whom he visited daily. They are heart broken, as we are.
Please take a minute to go over to Pirulo's bloggy and post a message. It will bring some peace and comfort to his grieving family and friend, "the other one."
So, part of me is still feeling very sad, but part of me is feeling happy because of some other good news:
Happy Part - As most of you know our pals in Australia are going through terrible flooding. Our hearts have been very heavy worrying about our pals over there (so far all of the ones I personally know are present and accounted for and have escaped damage, thankfully). But, many anipals have not been that fortunate. Some have been rescued and turned over to shelters, others have not had that good fortune.
My friend @Dashkitten posted a blog today that is a very good read. First, there is a video clip of a BBC weather station that is running a video explaining why all this is happening to Australia. It's the first time we have heard a sensible explanation to such a disaster. The second part of her blog is what made me feel HAPPY. Dash lists the site where we can go in and help by donating whatever we can afford to help all the anipals that have been rescued. They needs to buy lots of food, supplies, etc. So, every little bit helps.
Dashkitten just posted a new post, so be sure to read the current one, then go over to the AnipalTimes and read her article published there. She provides the link in her blog.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the oomans and anipals in Australia. May this flooding end soon. To give you an idea how big the area is that is flooded, M read an article yesterday dat compared it to an area twice the size as the state of Texas. That's HUGE.
Thanks for visiting Pirulo's blog and Dash's blog. Next time we hopes we has all happy news.
