Fly High Sweet Boy

Hi Pals,

I'm just adding an update to this post on 3-19-11 because when I wrote it I didn't realize Twitter Pals were planning on a Celebration Pawty for
#NimbusPawty today at 4:00 p.m. to midnight EST.   Come and join us in the celebration of his life.   Many of us are dressing in Nimbus' fur, with our own faces.  Hopefully we can make TSB have a few laughs at us and put a smile in her day.   Their vet bills has been enormous, so if you can contribute a little bit, it would be appreciated.  Even a $1 will help as it all adds up.  The widget for contributing is on the right side of this page.  TSB still has 2 other kitties with vet bills too, so dis will all help.  

Original Post on 3-18-11:

We were so shocked and saddened to hear dat Nimbus crossed dat Rainbow bridge dis afternoon.  He bravely fought his battle against Diabetees; now he is forever at peace and no longer in pain.  

I know his famly is heart broken, and so are we.  I'm trying to tell myself to look at the bright side - he's no longer in pain, will not suffer anymore, and has wonderful friends over the bridge dat will look after him.  In fact @Bill_the_Cat, @HollieCatRocks and @RudyCKat welcomed him at the bridge and were making plans for his evening.
 
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his mom, dad, Jadzia and Curzon.  We know they are deeply saddened by his crossing.   I hope they can find some comfort in knowing he loved them very much as they did him.   His Mom and Dad did everything they could possibly do to help him get better, but it just wasn't meant to be.  So sad.

Nimbus pal, I know you are feeling better already and probably Rudy dashed you of to the salon for a total make-over.  I bet you are floofy and very handsome once again.  Pal we'll remind @TheNascarKitty dat you need dat Security Badge.   M said she'd make you one, but she isn't sure which one you had in mind.   Oh, and pal... I was looking outside for your star tonight, and I think I found it off in the East winking at me.  I hope you saw me waving at you buddy.  

Fly high dear friend.  We will miss you greatly, but never forget you.

Until we meet again.....

Your buddy, Mario.

Super Mario my dearest friend, Nimbus will be remembered and what a wonderful part you did. I not know him that well, he reminded me of the beautiful silver gray fur of our Smokygirl. She is also at de OTRB. Mom say one day we will all be in Heaven together.

That was so sad that Nimbus had to go to the bridge. We thought he was doing better. But now he is running free. But his family is very sad.
