Three Years Without Possum

Greetings, Effurybody!

Mummy had the sads yesterday because She was remembering Possum, who came before Us and who flew away to the Rainbow Bridge exactly three years ago yesterday, on October 21, 2012.

We have heard a lot about Possum. It seems he was a furry special kitty and it's sometimes quite hard to live up to his Legacy, but We do our best. We think Possum would have been proud of Us and we are sure We would have liked to know him.

Anyway, as is her custom on this day, Mummy was looking at pictures of Possum and telling Us stories about the things he and Pixie used to get up to. We like hearing these stories. They are part of Our Heritage.

Here are some of the pictures Mummy showed Us yesterday:

This picture displays the magnificence of Possum's tail. Mummy says that, in some ways, Trixie's tail reminds her of Possum, not in its colour but in its floofiness and its stripiness..
What do you think?

Mummy also finds similarities between Possum and Caspurr, who, although he bears a greater resemblance to Pixie in the colour of his furs, is a Gentle Giant, like Possum was, with HUGE, soft paws.

Here is Possum, in the foreground, together with precious Pixie:

And here is Caspurr: 

See what we mean about the paws (mol)?

And, of course, Shimshi also has a lot in common with Possum. Both were rescued by Step-Grandma and brought to Mummy at a moment's notice, when She wasn't expecting or intending to be adopting any new kitties that day! And both were covered with fleas (mol)!

Here is Possum the day he arrived:

And below is a picture of Shimshi, shortly after he arrived in what was to be his furever home:

So, you see, the Chain remains Unbroken and We Three are carrying on a Proud Tradition.

Possum was a handsome kitty. I think it's wonderful that your mom tells you stories of him and sees some similarities between all of you. It's very important to remember those who came before us and honor their memory. Thanks for sharing Possum with us today.
