My Eyes Are Leaking....

I just popped in to Facebook to play some games before writing a blog post for Dakota's blog when I happened upon heartbreaking information.

It appears that Au, the handsome orange and white tabby boy, the beloved mancat of Ellen Whyte of the blog Katz and Other Tales  and to many of us in the Cat Blogosphere, has crossed the bridge.

I only knew Au through his blog, never met him in person, nor have I met Ellen. It is incredible how these precious cats find a comfortable place in our hearts and never leave. Dear Au was one of these cats.

We guess that God needed another Angel.

My heart goes out to Ellen and her family. He will be deeply missed and always remembered and loved.

Ellen, Cody and I love you and are sending you prayers and much love and comfort during  this most difficult time.
