ManCat Monday

A cat sees no good reason why it should obey another animal, even if on two leg it does stands - Sarah Thompson

We found out some sad news over the weekend. Our of our original buddies on the Cat Blogosphere, Edsel, lost his human mum to brain cancer.

Me, Derby, remembers way back when we first purred for his mum as she started to go through her first treatments. You may see other long blogging kitties doing a remembrance to Edsel's mum on their blogs over the weekend.

Edsel is a good guy, a handsome tuxie, much loved by his mum and dad. He was fun to be around and was a wonderful tub hockey player. We have missed him being part of the blogosphere after his mum got sicker. So send lots of purrs to Edsel and his family.

We think most of our furiends did ok through the nasty Irene storm. We had a few kitties teleport over for sunny and dry skies. Nice to see you, glad you are all safe.

We hadn't heard about Edsel's mommy-we've spent the weekend moving (well, Mom moved and we got stuck in the PTU's). We remember when Edsel's mommy had her first surgery. It was right when we started reading. We'll go over and leave him and his daddy a message.

Mom misses her very much. They got to be friends, emailing nearly every day. Edsel & Casey took good care of her.

Hi D, D & Mom
Re obituary info: Sorry, I can't find any. I did some basic searches for Berkley Michigan area deaths & obituaries under both names of Jackson and Goodman and Jackson Goodman combined, but came up with nothing. I'm not a great searcher, you might turn up something. Let me know if you do. Lynne

Just did one further search under "Susan J Goodman obituary Berkley MI" and got a hit at Tributes.com and there she is! However there is basic info and no one has left a tribute or memory at the site.
