ManCat Monday - Cousin Trooper

Hi everybuddy,

We're sorry to have to tell you that last Tuesday, the 14th, our sweet Cousin Trooper crossed the
Rainbow Bridge.  He is now happily reunited with his Mom, Auntie El.  Cousin Trooper's new Grandmom (she never called herself Mom because Auntie El was his Mom) called to say that
he went into heart failure and had to leave.  She was with him when he left this world and we know Auntie El was there at the Bridge to welcome him.  We know it was a wonderful reunion.  Cousin Trooper lived with his Grandmom for almost 4 years (hard to believe Auntie El will be gone that long).

We put together a slideshow of some great memories of Cousin Trooper.  Mom is so glad that he went to his Grandmom after Auntie El passed.  In fact, his Grandmom never even hesitated when  our Mom asked if she would like to have him.   He was originally coming back here (did you know he once lived with us?) but we knew he preferred to be an only cat.  He was a lucky ManCat to be loved by so many.


           
Ins't this a beautiful graphic Ann from Zoolatry made for Cousin Trooper?   We love that she included Auntie El.

Fly free Cousin Trooper.   Please give Auntie El a hug from us.   We love you both and miss you both.

I'm sure Trooper will be missed. The celebration at Rainbow Bridge was I imagine a happy one for Auntie El and Trooper.

What a lovely and handsome lad Trooper was. I wonder if he'll meet up with Nissy in Heaven. They could romp through nip fields together, chasin' butterflies. PURRS.

Grandmom will sure miss Trooper, no doubt he gave her a lot of comfort when Auntie El left us too soon. But what a happy reunion that now Trooper is with his Mom again. As sad as this is here on earth, I cannot help but feel some happiness to know he is with the human he loved dearly. I am very sorry for Trooper's loss and will keep you in my purrs.

So sorry that your Cousin Trooper has left for the Bridge but in my heart I know that he's where he is the HAPPIEST - with Auntie El. I have seen them having some good cuddles since he arrived here at the Bridge. The slideshow was wonderful and so many cute moments captured on film - lots of sweet memories.......

I am so very sorry to learn Cousin Trooper flew away to the Bridge although he did have his Mom to greet him and love on him after all this time. I know Troopers GrandMom must be terribly sad though as they loved one another these four years. Cousin Trooper, I will see you one day as we will all meet again. Kissies.
