Sweet Annie and Through the Years

Our sweet friend, Annie, left for The Bridge a few days
ago. We are sad and will miss her so very much. 

If you knew her and will miss her, please feel free to 
download the following graphic to display on your blog. 
We will be adding it to our Rainbow Bridge tab.

As some of you know, Andy was only 9 ounces when mama rescued him from the shoulder of a busy street in Mesa, Arizona.  Thankfully Sammy "mothered" him from the "git go!"!!!  

They have been best buds since that day in the Summer of 2000.....of course Andy was much smaller than these pictures when mama first found him....this is after he was able to get around on his own without shaky legs...and as he grew.  Unfortunately mama didn't get pictures of him when she first found him......guess she was too busy trying to save him.

Purrs and lotza love,

Sammy and Andy

From the looks of Andy now, I'm thinking Sammy did a great job of 'mothering' him. All it takes is Love ......

Beautiful pictures of a very Handsome pair of purrballs.


Beautiful tribute to Annie as well. We did not know her until we went to the Blog and read about her. Now, if you don't mind, we will take a copy of the tribute button and post it on our page. It will be a day or two in the making. It will be called Rainbow Bridge Tribute. Link in the Page links column on the left of the blog.

Purrs and head butts from the 6 Mouskateers of Five Oaks Manor.

We are so sorry about Annie too. It is so nice that you have made such a lovely tribute to her. We will place it on our blog.
We love todays pictures. What a lucky little boy Andy was, when you found him. Now he and Sammy have such a good life. I wish the same for all cats. Unfortunately many never find homes. It makes us very sad.

Andy was such a tiny boy when your mom found him - well done to her and to Sammy too for taking such good care of him. Look at him now - we think he must have put a pound or two on since then!!

The Adventures of Scarlett and Melly said...

Oh my gosh, he was so teeny!! And what a crazy adoption story, wow. Well, you and Sammy did a great job raising Andy into a big strong mancat!

Annie Bear said...

Sammy, what a sweet, loving brother you were and are. I love the picture where Andy is so small with Andy. Judi, you did a great job too. Your boys sweethearts. I also love the picture of Sammy resting on Andy.

Yes, we are missing Annie too. We are so sad about her.

That is a wonderful tribute to Annie. We also love those little tiny pictures of Andy. It is always fun to see them when they were tiny babies. Sammy you were such a good big brother. Also could you boys tell your Mom that our Mom is so jealous that your Mom can do all those things with the pictures. MOL.

Sammy and Andy
That was a lovely remembrance to Annie who we all miss here in our blogosphere.

What a cute little cow kitty you were as a baby Andy! And how sweet of Sammy to "mother" you. YOU were a wee little lad weren't you. We are so glad that your Mom was there and found you. How lucky you've been to have such a wonderful forever Mom.

Debra Taylor said...

I am so sorry about losing Annie. There is nothing harder than losing someone important to you. I'm praying that you can feel her love coming from the other side of the bridge.

For all you folks and animals reading this my blog has stories and information helpful for cat helpers everywhere. Pass it on to your human ‘beans!

I pray that all cat blogosphere kitties stay happy and healthy!
