Our hearts are breaking on Twitter today as we've had to say goodbye to a very dear friend @Petiethecat.
Petie was an institution on Twitter. He was one of my first friends when I entered the Twitter world in January 2009. Everyone in the anipal world on Twitter knows and loves Petie. He's going to be sadly missed, but most of all by his very loving and dedicated "Mama and Daddy," as Petie called them.
Petie fought a long, hard battle with kidney failure and diabetes and has been in ill health for a long time. We are rejoicing that he is at peace now and without pain, but very sad for our community because @Petiethecat was such a vibrant member. Whenever I think of Twitter, I think of Petie. We are all better anipals for having known him.
I'm so thankful for all the good memories we have of him. We've all had so much fun thru the years, and a lot of those memories center around being invited to the #lakewithpetie. Talk about fun! For two summers now Petie invited us to join them at their lake cottage in Canada every holiday weekend and many weekends in between. It was always a good time.
Fly High dear friend. You are now pain free, can nom on whatever you want to nom on and be free to chase all the butterflies. We'll always love you and never forget you. We'll meet again some day buddy!
