Too many of my pals lately are crossing that Rainbow Bridge. Sadly last Friday I learned of another one - Jami (one of the kitties at @MizzBassie's house).
Jami was an extra special kitty rescued by Brian's Dad at http://www.brianshomeblog.com/ last fall from a shelter that was a poor situation for him. A forever home needed to be found fast. Tweets were sent out on Twitter which happened to draw the attention of @MizzBassie's human, who was ready to adopt another kitty. But Jami needed to be transported from North Carolina to Southern Florida - Yowzer! That's a long way.
Well, you know the blogging and Twitter community - they always come together. A Special Guardian Angel with a group of volunteers in place agreed to transport Jamie. Wow - all of Twitter was watching the tweets the day Jami made the trip. with the volunteers tweeting each time Jami was handed off to the next driver. You should have heard the cheers go up on Twitter and Face Book when a picture was shown of Jami placed in the arms of @MizzBassie's human.
No one really knows Jami's history, but apparently Jami had been used to going outside. He would occasionally escape out the door when a human opened it - no matter how careful the humans were. You know us kitties when we have our mind on something - there is no changing it. Sadly one night last week Jami made his great escape and was hit by a car.
@MizzBassie and her family are devastated. And sadly MizzBassie wants to blame herself. But all us kitties know that if we put our minds to something, there is no changing it. I have known @MizzBassie and her human on Twitter now for 4+ years and I know all the kitties and woofies in that house get the best of care and attention. It is NOT @MizzBassie's fault and it's so sad that it had to happen on her watch.
If you haven't already done so, please go over to The Bassie Bulletin and leave a few kind words. The family needs all the hugs it can get right now.
Jami - I'll never forget you buddy. You were so handsome and loved your new family so much. If was a great honor to have played a tiny part in your finding your forever home. You can run free now pal, but know your humans are missing you ever so much and they will never forget you - and neither will my family!
