Furry Fighter Friday


Today is dedicated to Storm, the Furry Fighter, who, after a hard-fought battle with lymphoma, is going to the Rainbow Bridge today. Storm, we love you! You have taught us all about strength and courage. You will be missed. We are purring and praying for you, your brother Castle, and the rest of your family. You will live on forever in our hearts, Storm.

This is Storm. She is wearing the medal that her mom won my completing a 5K for cancer!

This is Whiskers. He is the One Who Came Before. He is a Seal Point Siamese, like Storm, who went to the Rainbow Bridge on September 1st, 2006. Whiskers will be waiting to greet Storm at the Bridge.

In honour of Whiskers' memory, our mom commissioned this portrait by her very talented friend, Michelle Wiebe.

It's always so sad when a pet dies.

That is a wonderful tribute Dragonheart and Merlin. I am sure our Siamese who came before is there to welcome Storm too.

Whiskers certainly was a handsome boy! We're sure that Whiskers and our Purdy & Basil were there to welcome Storm across the bridge. We will miss her, but we're happy that she is now free from her pain.

It is always hard to say good-bye when a friend leaves. This is a very nice tribute to Storm.

Whiskers was a very handsome kitty. It's no wonder your mom had his portrait made.
