Email from Darcy (8/9/08):

I went to your blog the day after I called you. I knew you would post the sad news. It has been good for us (Brooks and I) to read the kind words of all of the people who have commented. We both can't stop crying. I want Zebby back. I loved that guy. He woke us up in the morning. He called for me when he didn't know where I was in the house. I'd have to call back to him and literately tell him what room I was in and he'd come strolling to find me. He loved his canned food. He'd get it after we combed him every evening (to keep the mats away). He'd cry for me to come to him and give him arm pitter rubs. We both miss him dearly. It was all so sudden. We didn't get to pamper him at the end or give him a million kisses goodbye. I want him back. I loved him so much. He was so special, only with us for less than 2 years. I want him back. It will take a long while for us to stop crying (doesn't feel like we ever will). Please let everyone know how much we appreciate the special words. Thank you for being his first mom. Darcy.

I recieved a call from Darcy this morning with news that our sweet Zebby Boo had gone to the Bridge. I think he passed this past Monday and it was sudden, making it all the more difficult for Darcy. He had a vet visit last Saturday and the vet asked Darcy if she'd noticed him having difficulty breathing. She hadn't and they just assumed he was a bit stressed about being at the vet. What cat wouldn't be stressed, right? Then a friend had come to visit and said to Darcy that Zebby was having breathing troubles and so she quickly took him back to vet. He went quickly downhill and was really not doing good once she arrived at the vet. So, they put him on oxygen and did an x-ray which showed Zeb to have an enlarged heart and fluid around his lungs. The vet decided to keep him overnight (my details may not be exact, sorry if they're not Darcy). He ended up passing late that night. Zebby was a special kitty and he will be missed! You can leave Darcy your condolences here and then she can look at them when she is ready. Rest in peace sweet Zebby...we love you.

We didn't know Zebby, but we are always sad to learn a furry has passed on. We know he has left many happy memories, but also a Zebby-size hole in your hearts.

KC and the Giggleman Kitties said...

Like Karen, I remember when Zebby first came to stay with you and also feel completely in love with him. This is a shock and terrible news.
We will miss him so much.
Even though Zebby found his forever home with Darcy, Kat frequently had posts on Emma's blog about him, so we could all stay in touch.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Darcy and Kat and their families.
Love and Purrs,

Oh no. I am so, so sorry to hear this terrible news. I, too, have loved Zebby from way back when you had him on your blog, and you were fostering him and trying to find him a home. And then, wonderful Darcy adopted him. Zebby was just so beautiful and sweet.
My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you, Kat, and with Darcy and her family. I am just so saddened by this.

We are sorry to hear this sad news. Purrs and (((hugs))) to you.


We remember too when Zebby was first introduced to the blogosphere and we are sad to hear that he passed on to the Rainbow Bridge..our deepest sympathy on your loss...

And I will light a candle for you.
To shatter all the darkness and bless the times we knew.
Like a beacon in the night
The flame will burn bright and guide us on our way.
Oh, today I light a candle for you.

The seasons come and go, and I'm weary from the change.
I keep on moving on, you know it's not the same.
And when I'm walking all alone
Do you hear me call your name?
Do your hear me sing the songs we used to sing?

You filled my life with wonder, touched me with surprise,
Always saw that something special deep within your eyes.
And through the good times and the bad,
We carried on with pride.
I hold onto the love and life we knew.

And I will light a candle for you.
To shatter all the darkness and bless the times we knew.
Like a beacon in the night
The flame will burn bright and guide us on our way.
Oh, today I light a candle for you.
