Temporary Goodbye to a Special Boy

@CokieTheCat: The Hollywood Insider,
19 years young
OTRB 10/1/13

Dear Pals,

Once again we have heavy hearts and leaky eyes as we have to say goodbye to another special friend @CokieTheCat: The Hollywood Insider.  

Cokie was special to so many of us.  He and his humans have done so much for the animal community in Blogs, BlogPaws, and the Twitter world.   Cokie is an icon to so many of us.  And he's a poster kitty for mancats wearing diapers since he has been in one ever since I met him some 4+ years ago.  He taught all of us that is's okay and that you can even make a fashion statement. Cokie didn't let a few bladder problems get in his way of helping others less fortunate.   But, sadly, as all good things eventually come to an end, Cokie had to cross that Rainbow  Bridge at age 19 due to bladder/kidney problems.

Goodbye sweet boy.  The world is a better place because of all the work you have done, and all the work your  humans will continue to do.   You have touched my heart forever.   We will meet again some day pal.   Hugs for your pawparents - no one could have loved you more than they do.

Pals, please leave your condolences for Cokie's pawparents at his blog http://cokiethecat.com/    They will deeply appreciate any and all comments.   No need to leave anything here.

Mario

It proves that any of us, four-legged or two-legged, no matter what challenges we have that we can still help others. Good-bye to a great kitty! Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
