  2. Oh man, dood…I am leaking so freaking hard right now. I’m glad you got some extra days with your Food Lady and Mr. Tasty Face, but everyone is going to miss you here sooooo much.

    Skeez…man, you have been a rockstar and I loved you so damned much. I know I’ll see you at the Bridge someday but right now…this just sucks. And I know it sucks worse for your people.

    Say hi to all our friends up there for me. I’m gonna think about you a lot. A whole lot.

    Man…

  3. Oh Skeezix! We are really really really really sad that you have crossed over. We know you have a ton of friends at The Bridge, but would you mind saying “Hello” to Obi, Jenny, Bow, Annie, and Gatsbi from all of us here at Forty Paws? Many hugs to you Skeezix. We know that you are pain free and running with all those who have gone before.

    Hugs to your Mom and Mr. TF.

    I am so very sorry. Skeezix was such a special cat, loved by all. I am heart broken for you and my thoughts and prayers are with you and his many friends.

  5. Skees you rode high and lived large. Lots of us lived through your wonderful adventures. You will never be forgotten and we purray that your trip to the Bridge is as fun as the many trips you’ve been on here. Enjoy the ride and see you on the other side.
    Many big purrs and hugs….

  6. We are so sorry to read this new. Sending comforting purrs from all of us to your family.

    Sending purrs and prayers to FL, mr TF , Mao and tripper. Skeezix glad you got a few good days at the end. We know you will be the best dressed at the bridge. This is so sad.

  9. You’re a legend in the Blogosphere and we’re honored to have known you. We’re so sorry you had to go to the Bridge so soon and it’s making us all leaky. Lots of love to you and your family. We’ll miss you always.

  10. Ms. Food Lady, Mr. TastyFace, Mao, and Tripper, we are so sorry that Skeezix has gone to the bridge. Mom is leaking a lot from her eyes right now. Skeezy was one of a kind, and we will miss him so very much.

    Purrs,
    Cody, Gracie, and our Mom (Tara)

  11. My human and I just read you were gone on Facebook and we are both sadder than you can possibly imagine. Skeezix, we will miss you so much. Please say hi to all our friends who are gone – we’ll always remember you.

  12. Oh goodness. We knew this was coming but we hate it all the same. Meowm asks that you say hello to Junior and china for her, and countless others that we have lost. We know you feel all better now and we are glad for that. We will send our best purrs and gentle headbutts to the FL, Mr. TF, Mao and Tripper. We are certain you will rock the bridge with your incredible fashion!

  13. Oh, Skeezy… This makes me so, so sad. Saying goodbye to so many special friends is part of why we stopped cat blogging. My multi-medium piece of art that your Mom made is even more special to me now. See you at the bridge, you stylin’ hunk of fashinista mancat! We’ll love you always. xoxo

  14. We are so distraught at this news. I can only imagine how Mr. TF and the Food Lady feel. My eyes are leaking so badly that I can hardly type. I loved you so dearly, Skeezy, and I loved all that you represented. I am so sorry for your entire family. You gave us great joy during your all-too-short life. It’s truly the end of an era in the cat blogging world. :’(

  15. Oh SKEEZIX! Allie’s utterly devastated that her fashion idol has gone to the RB. And we boycats are having to do serious mop up duty cuz our mommy’s leaking all over us. We sure do send many MANY loving and heartfelt purrs to your humans, cuz we can only imagine how their hearts are a bit hurty right now. WE WILL CARRY YOUR TORCH DOOD, in your honor. You are a legend.

  16. Oh, no, we were so hoping you would have more good time with Mr TF and your FL. We are leaking so bad for them right now. You have been such a joy to know. We will really miss you. Hugs for your FL and she can share them with Mr TF.

  17. Sending out love, PURRS, and condolences from all of us at Purrchance To Dream, and from everyone in The Cat Blogosphere.
    You’re one of the greats, Skeezix, and will always have a great place in our hearts.

  18. Dood! I’m leeking an’ mom’s leaking … And we can’t believe yer gone.

    Skeeze,
    Yoo were a righteous dood an’ were unrivaled on the innerwebs. The Cat blogosphere has lost it’s legendary leader.

    Say “hey” to DMM from me an’ mom …
    Charmee

  25. bonnie wilson |

    We are all so very sorry to hear of Skeezix passing to The Bridge. There are many wonderful kitties that he will get to meet in person that already knew each other from the internets, but we know that he is missed so very, very much. Purrs and very gentle headbutts to Skeezix family …

  26. Be at peace my dear furry friend. I feel blessed to have known you and your family. You are certainly leaving this world as a better, richer place because you were in it. Seriously dood, you made a huge difference. I can only imagine how much more awesome the Bridge will be with you there. See you again soon…but not too soon.

  27. Skeezix, we are so very sorry that you have gone to the Bridge. We have leaky eyes here and will always remember you. You were one of our first blogging friends.

  29. Victor Tabbycat |

    Dude, this is a sad day in the blogosphere. One of the saddest. You pwned blogging. We will miss you very, very much, but never as much as you will be missed by your family. Watch out fur Bonnie Underfoot! She’ll smack you and call you names. Skeezy, I’ll always be an FOS. Farewell, deer furiend.

  30. We are very sad to hear the news about Skeez. Hugs and Purrs. We are thinking about you.

  31. Oh Skeezy, our little friend, we will miss you so much, but not even a pinch as much as the Food Lady and Mr Tasty Face and Mao and Trip. Soooo many cats will be lined up to meet you! Our little sis Daisy and big brofur Jasper will help efurryone show you around. Our hearts are hurting so bad and mom is leaking all ofur the place.

    Sending many hugs and purrs to your fambly,

    Bridgett, Badness, Scrappy and Daisy the dog.

  37. I was saddened to read Skeezix had to go to the Rainbow Bridge, yet comforted at all the loved ones he had to greet him. May the beloved memories comfort you in this sad, hurtful time and may God be watching over you and your loved ones as you face the days ahead without his physical presence. I will pray for you guys.

  41. We thought The Four Housecats of the Apocalypse purring for you would make you want to stay, and our Mama Mimi, who can do anything, helped us purr, but we understand. Three of our fur sisters and one fur brother are there already, and we don’t know why they’d want to leave us, but we know it’s something a cat’s got to do at some time in his life. Our human’s eyes are leaking all over us and her shirt, and we have to clean her up now. Give TFL and MTF a little lick to let them know you’re still around, they just can’t see you, and give a nose tap to our tortie and calico sisters and that goof Namir–you’ll like him a lot.

  42. Farewell, dear friend. Ko, Jacob and especially Taz will be there to welcome you with open paws.

  43. I’m glad all your angel pals were at the gate to greet you, Skeez. Once you get through orientation, you’re gonna have the best wings at the bridge, and I know you’ll be teaching all of us a few things about fashion. Purrs and angel dust to your family today. Love is forever – you are always in their hearts, and in so many other peoples’ hearts too. We love you!

  44. I first met you on Catster when I was a kitten. Fly free my pal, the sky has a new very BRIGHT and very FASHIONABLE star! Shine on!

    I love you, man.

  45. Murray and Miles family |

    Miles speaking: It’s not fair that I’m here and you are already having to leave. I don’t understand it either. But I know Murray1 and Jacob will be delighted to see you and do anything you need. Our eyes are leaking because you left!

  46. Cody and I send our deepest sympathy. Please tell our Angel Bobo hello when you see him at the Bridge, and you can chase some catnip mice together.
    We are so sorry to hear this sad news.

  47. I couldn’t have imagined you were on Karl and my wedding. But you were…
    Too soon, too young, but i guess the Bridge needed a cat like you.

    My purrs and thought are with your family and close friends!
    We Skeezix, we will meet again…

    ~ Ruis

  48. Safe journey, my friend, until we meet someday. I know all who have gone before are partying big time at your arrival. I have kept all of your cards and pictures and we will treasure them always. We will miss you sorely, Skeeze.

    Dear FL, Mr. TF, Mao and Tripper … we are thinking of you and sending warm light and gentle purrs.

    Go well and run free across the Bridge, my friend.

  62. Oh Skeezix,

    While us humans all have leaky eyes, we also wish you all the fun in the world at the bridge. I can only imagine the wonderful time you will have with all those who have gone before.

    You had an amazing life, all who knew you were blessed for having gotten to know you.

  63. I’ve come to pay my respects to a pioneer of blogging cats. *bows head* I’l bet Pepi the Smart Dog has a very special gold pram waiting for you. Comforting purrz to those he left behind and those who love him.

  64. *Bows head…*

  68. Oh Skeezy, we all ahve leaky eyes here at HotMBC. We are so happy we got to know you, though. We know Sanjee will be happy to see you at the Bridge and maybe you can give her some fashion tips. We’ll send lots of love to The Food Lady and Mr. Tasty Face and Mao and Tripper for their sads. Bless you, little buddy. <3

  69. Three bad things happened with me today. SO I thought, hey, that’s all, right? Don’t bad things come in threes?
    *WRONG*
    Some purrsons are so big and large and amazing and wonderful and all those other good things that you know they will always be here, right?
    *WRONG*
    I’m trying to recall when I first “met” Skeez. I know it was via his blog, and also on Catster. It was quite awhile ago.

    In shock. Can’t really process this at all.

    I hope and pray the transition was easy and peaceful. Platitudes and such won’t help, so I won’t post them. Everyone who’s lost someone amazing and totally beloved knows how everyone here must be feeling now.

    *fly free, beloved Skeezix. We loved you here and we will love you there. Many of my beloveds undoubtedly greeted you and are helping to show you around. Teach them all the great stuff, Big Guy.” We’ll all be there by and by.

    To Karen and Mr. TF and all of his loved ones here, there are no words except *PRAYERS* and *LOVE*. He’s watchin’. <3

  70. Carole Vehrs |

    Oh no, I am so sorry to hear Skeezy has gone to the bridge so soon. I always heard so many nice things about Skeezix from Nancy Vehrs who knew him from her blogging days.

  71. Grandma Cat of the Hotties |

I know your Food Lady and Mr. Tasty face are sad beyond words. You will always be a sweetheart and the coolest cat guy I know — The Hotties will miss you as will the typist and I. Glad you got to be with your people for a few extra days. oxoxox

  72. We are soo sorry to see you leave us. We promise to watch over your friend Daisy and say extra purrz for her cuz she’s going to be so sad.

  73. We are so sorry to hear it was time for you to cross the bridge, Skeezix. Please tell Sweet Praline and Beignet hello for us.

Thank you for being my very special friend, Skeezix. You will remain in my heart forever. Rest in peace. There will never, ever be a mancat as handsome, smart, funny, or with muscles as big and strong as you. XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

  78. Skeezix, your family’s hearts will ache a long time even though they know you are not sick anymore. You were so very kind in writing about me when I crossed the bridge. I am one of many many in the throng at the gates to welcome you to the 10th Life. Love is forever, Hazel Lucy

  79. oh no, no, no. we are all leaking so much, the drought in the southwest will be over. you were our role model, the kind of blogging cat we always wanted to be. your sense of your humor, your sense of fashion, your fight against the vishus deer – oh man, we will miss you! our purrs go to your family, we are so sorry you had to leave. but you are a legend, and your spirit will always be with all of us.

  88. Skeezy,
    You were the first blog that we ever read and you inspired us to start our own. Thank you for sharing your life with us and teaching us about vishus deers and muscles and fashion. We are so very honored that you came to our house. We will never ever forget it. We wish you could have stayed around longer, but we understand about having to go to the Bridge. The Mom is absolutely sure that there’s a big reunion up there today. We hope that you and Titus get a chance to be pink and white and froot batty together. The Mom’s eyes are too leaky and she can’t help us type any more. Fly free, dood. Thank you for being our furriend. Hugs and purrs and purrayers to Mr TF and the Food Lady.

  89. Skeez, you inspired both me and Quasi to become bloggers! Nobody will ever equal you, dude. I hope I get to meet you someday “up there” and I’m sure the Food Lady and Mr. TF are looking forward to the happiest reunion with you at the bridge.

  90. Skeezy, we know you are fine now that you are at the Rainbow bridge. It was so grate to know you. We send heartfelt condolences to Mr Tastyface and the Food Lady. We know they will miss you so much.

  92. Oh noes. Skeezix, I looked up to you as the most famous cat on the internet. We are going to miss you very much. Mom and I are sending hugs and purrs to Mr Tasty Face and the Food Lady.

  93. We just don’t have anything to say. The Lap Lady is sobbing and liquid is running down her face.

    Latte & Kaze

  94. Good on you Skeezix – entertaining us all right up to the end. You enjoy your visit to the bridge and catching up to all of the good people and friends who have gone before.

  95. Adios, Skeezix. Love to your family.

  96. Oh, I do be so sorry that you do goed to the bridge already. I do hoped you might could be friends with She’s Scrooge at the bridge too. She and He do still missed Scrooge – like you peoples will miss you too.

  98. Oh, Skeezix…We all are so sad that you had to cross the bridge, but like all of your friends who have stopped by to give hugs and purrs to FL and TF, we, too, smile when we think of you and Kismet and Eric and all the friends you have made along your journey who went before you…to think of you all together now is kind of comforting. And just like Kismet’s Whisker Humps and Eric’s whizzing on the bushes…we will always think of you when we see Pink (and Coco said she will think of you when she is in her pink wig, too).

    Fly free and know that you have made a difference in the world and brought smiles to many…that is something very special and rare and we are proud to have called you ‘Furrend’…

  99. Lin@CatVideoMania |

    I am so sorry. I just saw that Skeezix is gone. I just came to know about him only a week ago through another site and I fell in love with him. I knew he had the big C and I hoped everyday that maybe something could help him.

    He was so cool in that leather jacket. Reminded me of the “Fonz” and we know how cool he was. I am truly heart broken and my prayers are with all of your family, Skeezy. I will miss reading your posts.

    You brought so much joy to others, it is hard to find words. You were a miracle and a real sweetheart. You will be with all of us who love you, in our hearts forever.

    I thank your mom, Karen, for helping to make you the fashionista man-cat of the internet and sharing your awesomeness with all of us. You were one of a kind, very unique and special and will always be a legend. I miss you terribly already. Sending love to you and your family from the very bottom of my heart.

    One of your many admirers,

    Lin

  100. Oh Skeezy…we are so very sorry to have to say goodbye. You’re brightened the lives of WAY more than any of us can count. Fly free sweetie…and say hello to all the friends on the other side.
    Bless you.

  101. Oh sweet, sweet Skeezix. How you will so be missed by so many, us included. Fly free. Purrs….

  102. Oh Skeezix… You will be very much missed. I have not known you for that much but I liked to come and read your bloggie. You were a star on the interwebs and now you are a star in the sky.
    We will remember you always.
    ((((purrs))))

  103. Skeezix, I was in total shock to hear that you had to leave us so soon. I thought you were getting better…and then to learn that you went to the bridge today was too much. Your buddies from Catster- Paisan, Whiskers, Buddy, Chasim, Sasha and Bella are sending huge amounts of purrs. Also we will keep the Food Lady and Mr. Tasty Face in our thoughts and prayers. Skeezix…you my friend are a hard act to follow. I loved your personality. There is only one you…and you will be greatly missed. <3

  104. Dude. Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Sigh. I am very sad. Fly free Skeezix…you earned it man! I will see you when it’s my time…and it will be good to see you again…Purrs from your pal, Paisan.

  105. DaneRay/Ray Chesnick |

    Oh, Skeezix, I’m so sorry. My Great Dane, Chase, went OTRB just 2 weeks ago so I’m sure that he will make sure you are most welcome. Your many friends there will give you a great show around. Huge hugzzzzzzzzz to you, precious kitty pal. RAY & TIPPER — @DaneRay

  106. Our hearts are heavy. It just seems too short of a time for you to have been here. How come time goes so fast with the ones we love the most? Thank you Skeezix. You taught us how to laugh again and how to rite like a kat – although we never did get it quite rite and never as funny as you. You taught us about the vishus deer and how to ride in da car. We never attempted to get anywhere near fashion cuz you had dat part all tied up.
    Visit the Food Lady and Mr TF in their dreams so they can heal quicker will ya? Your light will help to lighten all of our heavy hearts. Until it’s time for us all at the bridge, have fun with all the furriends you made who have been waiting for you.
    Love,
    Beau Beau and Angie and Mom Brenda

  107. My heart breaks for you and your family. I hoped you would have more time here with your Food Lady and Mr tastey Face. You were dearly loved and your life here much too short. You are an inspiration and loved by so many. There will never be another Skeezix. Forever in our hearts and memories. Thanks for all your words of kitty wisdom and the smiles you gave me when I read your posts. Purrs and prayers for the newest kitty angel at the bridge.

  108. Respect.
    The CB and the interwebs and the whole freaking world is less bright today.
    Love and purrs to your peeps.

    Xoxo
    Ms Stella O Houligan

  109. You are a legend sweet boy and will live on in the hearts of all until we meet again. Sending lots of warm comforting purrs to your family. Your life was grand but way too short. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

  112. Oh, dear Skeezix, we are so sad that you had to go off to the Rainbow Bridge. Everyone had purred that you would have more time with your family. And along with your FL, Mr. TF, Mao and Trip, you had the whole world as your family. My new kitten brother Spike didn’t get to know you but I will tell him all the wonderful stories about you. My Lap Lady’s eyes are leaking and we know that our sweet Willow will be there to greet you.

    Purrrrrrrs, China Cat, Spike William & Angel Willow

  116. Margaret and Motor |

    Skeezix, Motor here: We never met in cat, but Margaret and I read your blog and really admired you. We will miss you. I don’t have too many role models, now that I am an only cat. Maybe you will meet my sister, Princess, over there. She left us a little while ago. So, anyway, thanks for the fun times. Wishing you all the best. I know you were very loved.

  117. You were the greatest inspiration. Your Werds of Devotion contest was the being of Dolce’s Story Chair. You will be missed Skeezix.

    This really sucks.

  118. Our sincere condolances over the loss of your precious Skeezix; he was such a unique and darling boy and he will be missed and always remembered by countless friends from the CB…We will purr and pray for you all to find comfort in the love you shared and the great times you guys spent together=love never dies and in that sense, sweet Skeezix will never leave you…He knew you cherished him and that is the best we can ever give anyone in this life…big hugs…J, Calle, Halle, Sukki, Mommy Cat, Daddy Cat

  121. Dear Family of Skeezix the Cat – Eyes are leaking all over the world tonight and furry friends are purring for you to help ease the pain of your loss.

    Skeezix taught us all so much – especially how to live life to the fullest. He has left us all way too soon.

    Each time one of our kittehs goes to The Bridge, we humans look into the sunset and remember all the ones who came before and our hope is that they are having a huge party to welcome the newest one.

  122. We are so sorry to have to say goodbye. You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers. You leave a large void in the cat blogging world.

  123. We just read the sad news, and after reading all the caring and loving comments, written so much better than we could do, we think we will simply and quietly say “end of an era”…

  124. Goldie Goodwin |

    There is one and only one Skeezix. You pretty much started it all….
    It will never be the same without you.
    Take care at the bridge and get some of those kitties to dress right. Send back your love to your Food Lady, Mr. TF and even that darn Tripper and Mao.

  126. Benjamin Fuzz |

    I don’t know how to ease your sadness over the passing of this amazing guy. It’s great that he’s at the Rainbow Bridge, and you’ll find him there when it’s your time. But for now, you’re here and he’s there and it hurts. FL and Mr TF, please know that you are not alone. There are lots of us who will purr, pray, and offer as much loving support as you can handle.

  127. Our eyes are leaking and leaking and leaking. You were one of the first doods we met through the blogosphere and you helped us connect with so many other kittehs. Without you, our mommakitty and daddykitty would have never met the Food Lady and Mr. TF – we had so much in common. We know you are in a beautiful place now, with lots of fabulous fashion and havin’ some free stroll time with some other buddies. We will see you on the other side some day. We love you.

  128. I am so sorry to hear that you have passed Skeezix. Please know that you will always be loved & cherished. Fly free little one.

  129. We are all so very sorry to hear this sad mews. We are sad that you had to go, but know you will meet up with all your friends who went before, and make new ones, as well. Our Soot is over there, and I’m sure you’ll be grate buddies.
    Hugs, purrs and headbonks from the leaky eyes at Talk With the Paws.

  132. Hi Skeezix. We always admired you from afar, here in France where we live. We’re sorry we never got up close and personal, but we know you for the legend that you are. We have some siblings at the Bridge and maybe they wil be lucky enough to meet you. We have to tell you, though, that your parting words were among the classiest we have ever read. Run free, Skeezix. The Bridge is gaining quite a new resident!

    Purrs, Woofs and neighs from The Pouppunette Gang

  153. Skeezix, we are furry sorree dat yoo had to leeve efurrybody. We r sending our lufs to the fud Laydee, Mr. Tf and Mao and tripper.

  154. Dear Karen, Mr TF, Tripper and Mao, I first found Skeezix’s blog when a political writer from SFgate put up a link to your site. She said that when she got tired of politics and needed a laugh, she went to visit Skeezix’s blog. Little did I know that my world would change when I hit that link. I never knew there was a cat blogosphere! Halloween’s love of Rocky inspired her to create her own blog. But Skeezix was a world unto himself. He was the blog gold standard, because of his kindness, his interests, and his view of the world. He brought so many cats and people together, across the world and in person too. He made us happy reading about his adventures, and especially about his home life with all of you. He was adored and loved across the globe. Your loss and sadness are felt around the world today. Skeez was a one of a kind kitty. I am so sorry. I hope that St. Francis and St. Bernadette are at the Bridge to greet him with a warm embrace and tell him he never has to hurl again. I hope Rocky and Halloween and Sadie have a special place for him, and have put together a great outfit for him to tour the place across the Bridge for the first time. We will all miss him so. Lots and lots of love and hugs and purrs from Rafael and me and Jackpot. I hope Skeez can give Halloween a nice Mr TF face lick for me. xxxooo

  155. I am so sorry for your loss.

  156. So sorry to hear about Skeezix. He was one of a kind and we will miss him. Purrs…

  157. Jenna and Sissy |

    We just thought of you a couple days ago and wondered how you were doing. We are sad to hear you went to The RB, but we know you will see so many of your friends there. The RB will be even brighter with your sense of fashion, too. We’re sending hugs and purrs to those you left behind.

    Terri, Jenna and Sissy

  158. The cat blogosphere lost one of its great cats – Skeezix will be deeply missed by so many. Rest easy, sweet boy. You will never be forgotten.

  159. Oh Skeezix, we are so sad to read this. We loved your stories maybe as much as you did telling them. Big hugs and purrs to the Food Lady and Mr TF.

    Sending comforting purrrrrrss and gentle headbutttss to Mom Karen, Mr TastyFace and the rest of the crew.

  165. Run free and be free with your friends and family that have gone to the bridge before you. My heart is heavy today as I learned that you had left us. Though we didn’t visit much I knew you and we did get some visits in. You will be forever remembered and missed. Love to your family at this hard time.

  166. My throat is closing and my heart aches. Good Bye Friend.

  167. Fly free, Skeezix. You will be missed. Say hello to our angels, Colin and Panda if you can. And purrs to your family who will always love you. Eight years is too young…

  168. Oh Skeezix…

    Journey in JOY, dear kitty. You will leave a huge hole on this side. Please say hello to my Rexie-Puss, if you see him. I’m sending love to you, and to all those who are missing you so much.

  169. Purrs to help ease the pain in your hearts.

  170. Oh no, NO! TCB has lost a true icon who was loved by everyone. Our hearts go out to you for your loss. There will never be another Skeezix.

  173. Karen Terrell |

    To Mr. TF & the food lady: May you feel better soon. Skeezix has brought me many a smile, though I’d started reading about him only a short while ago. I did fall in love (sorry, Daisy), and you had done an awesome job of translating his thoughts into words. He was truly an important purrsonality, and I know that you gave him a wonderful, though too short, life. Thank you so much.
    Love, Karen, KC, Libby, and Zeus.

  174. We send hugs and purrs at this sad time of loss. Skeezix was a special guy and much loved.

  175. Mighty Kitty |

    Oh Skeezy! I am leaking so much after finding this
    out. You are soooooo missed and pink will never be the same color cause it will always have a touch of blue in it now! My sorrow and love to FL and Mr. TF. This is a huge Skeezix size hole in their lives and hearts which is really a huge hole never to be filled again here. I feel like changing my name to something else cause you were the true “Mighty Kitty”.

  176. We send our condolences to The FL and Mr. TF. Say hello to Mohawk and Clyde for us, will ya Skeezix? Mom says that you always reminded her of Mohawk, which is why we think she has had a secret crush on you all these years. We love you and will miss you so much!

    Purrs,
    Padre, Panda Bear, Meerkat, Cookie, Caramel, Sunny, Sky, and Mom Sue

  184. Reneda and the Baercats |

    I’m so sorry to learn of Skeezix’s journey to the Rainbow Bridge. I haven’t been online much recently so this took me quite by surprise. Skeezix was truly one of a kind. He redefined the cat world. “Beloved” is such an understatement. RIP sweet Skeezix. The world is a sadder place without you, but we are all better for having known you. Much love to you and to your family. I cannot even imagine their distress at this time. I hope they are able to find peace in their hearts.

  185. *wipes tears*
    Oh my dearest Skeezix, when my Mom and I read this a few days ago we were sad and have had leaky eyes since. It has taken me a while to be able to dictate this to mew because how does one and who ever likes to say goodbye? I have thought about it though and realized there doesn’t have to be a goodbye, for we will see one another again when it is our turn to go to the Bridge. I know mew are free of all pain and sickness there, the strong, happy, fashionable mancat mew were before the awful junk got inside mew. The same happened with my sister Černy almost a year ago- she was only ten and doing fine until one day and after a visit to the sticky doctor and surgery we got news that the awful junk had taken over her jaw, not wanting to let her eat. There was nothing to be done except take her home and help her eat and get medicine to feel better. Just like mew she was brave and strong and fought the awful junk, but like the FL and Mr.TF I’m sure felt bad seeing mew struggle, my Mom felt for my sister. Our humans knew the only place where you and Černy could go and not have the awful junk make you sick anymore was the Bridge. As much as that meant letting mew go, their love for mew didn’t want mew to suffer and what was best for mew.
    Mew were a blessing on this earth to mewz fans, furiends, and family. The joy and laughter mew brought to all, being a blog icon and inspiration, fashion tips, mewz strong muscles, extreme knowledge of all things human, about girlcats, vishus deer, and annoying siblings will go down in history and live synonymously with mewz name. Skeezix mew will never be forgotten, mew will be forever loved as I will forever love my sister who I know was one of many there to greet mew, she would be excited to discuss fashion with mew as she was a truly refined lady panther who kept her glossy black furs meticulously groomed right up until her journey. I know mew have so many there who love mew, so mew will never be lonely until mewz Mom, Dad, and bros see mew again.
    Thank mew for sharing mewz pawesomeness with the world sweet dude, fly free and forever loved.
    To the FL, Mr. TF, Tripper, and Mao:
    Please accept Ms. Phoebe and my sincerest sympathy in the loss of your amazing little guy. Many a day I looked forward to reading Skeezix’s posts upon seeing them in my inbox. Phoebe and I shared laughs, tears, amazement, and awe over his fabulous sense of style, keen observations on life, ladycats, humans, siblings, neighbors, traveling, and of course noms. As Phoebe noted in her comment, we too lost our little ladycat last July, quite suddenly and unexpectedly to cancer. Hearing about Skeezix’s diagnosis last month brought up memories and feelings of that time, and I felt much empathy with you. The loss is still felt quite often, yet has gotten better and I have no regrets letting her go when it was time. Please do not ever doubt any decisions or choice you made with Skeezix, we all know your deep love and respect for his unique soul and ginormous personality. What an honor it must have been to have 8 years with a mancat with such charisma and sweetness and I can attest his many fans feel honored that you shared him with us. You should feel proud to be the parents of a cat loved by so many around the world, who brought them much enjoyment and further appreciation of the feline species. His love for you was evident through the endless photos and videos we have enjoyed over the years– what an accommodating and mellow cat! And I know he felt even more love in his last days as you cared for him and then in that painful, dreaded moment: when he let you know he was ready to make his journey. No act of a pawparent is so difficult or more selfless than helping a fur baby make their peaceful journey to the Bridge. It is a final act of unconditional love and devotion for these little souls who are with us far too short of time. Skeezix is your angel now, and will be with you all in spirit I know, for I feel my girl often. Much love and peace we send to your family, you are in our thoughts as Skeezix is in our hearts.

    -Ms. Phoebe & Mom/slave Beth

  186. From Kissipurr, Darlin, Pinky, Handsome and all what a great catprint you left..

  187. Skeezix,

    So many happy memories that we recall since we first met on the Innernet in 2006, and joined as original members of the Friend of Skeezix club. We were so honored to be a small part of your world. We would visit your website for our daily laugh (or our daily cry when one of your followers made the trip across the Bridge). We will never forget the wonderful movies that you made and we very much cherished, especially the one with you chasing Mao out of his cardboard box, and the JibJab movies of you dancing with Daisy the Curly Cat. Who could top the awesome birthday party that you coordinated on 9/12/06 when you had an entire cat community dancing together, and then playing games like “Pin the Tail on Mao” or hosting a wonderful hat contest (Kalin participated and wore a hat made of feathers). We remember that Kalin enjoyed some dances with Skeezix, and Shabby met a kitty that he adored — Princess Ziporah. It was very fun and memorable.
    You were the BEST at honoring the cats who made their trips across the Rainbow Bridge, with nice and heart-warming wishes on your homepage. It touched our hearts so much when you created a little tribute to our baby girl Kalin who crossed the Bridge on 1/13/09. That was so beautiful. I’m sorry that the best that we can do for you is leave this small tribute on your page, and also some angel wings on your Catster page. You have touched the lives of so many cats and people, and we especially are grateful that you thought of us as your friends.
    May the Food Lady and Mr. Tasty Face be reminded of your constant presence in their lives with the Susan Faye drawings that we hope you enjoyed as a present from our family to yours.
    Shabby will be eternally indebted to you for showing him how to wear a colorful and fashionable tuxedo.
    We miss you and love you dearly like one of our own.

    “Your family chain is broken,
    And nothing seems the same.
    But as God calls us one by one,
    The chain will link again.”

  188. We are so sorry to hear about Skeezix’s passing. He was one of the early cat bloggers we met, and glad we had the opportunity to know him over the years – and even meet his flat alter-ego in 2011. Sending our thoughts and condolences to Karen and the rest of the family.

    -Amar and Luna

  189. RIP dear Skeezix… You’ll be missed! Give our love to all of our friends at the Rainbowbridge!
    We wish Mrs. FL and Mr. TF all the best in this loss…
    Love from Tink, Arwen, Foofur, Freyja, Bastet & Maia

  190. Please say hello to brandi for us. Bet she’s saying “oh Skeez, now the parties will be so much more fun here!” And more fashionable, too.
    ((((hugs to your family))))
    QUINN and Carol

  191. Enjoy the bridge and thanks for sharing your wonderful life – you are amazing. FAZ

  192. Oh no! Our eyes are leaking a very lot that you had to leave your family Skeezix. We will miss you very much. Know that you have left many wonderful memories for all of us. We hope Mr. TF and all your family can feel the love being sent to them by so many who care.

    Till we all meet again.
    Love from Timmy and the Tomcat Home

  194. Oh, Skeezix, I am so very sorry that you had to leave Mr. Tasty Face and the Food Lady to go to the Rainbow Bridge and be with all your friends up there. We will miss you very much.

    Karen Jo, Spyro, Oja, Rocio, Bambino and Jose

  195. I was so sad to hear about Skeezix. I used to blog as Rascal and Catzee, before Rascal crossed the Rainbow Bridge and Catzee disappeared. My heartfelt hugs for losing such an amazing cat as Skeezix.

  196. I am only a young kitten of nearly five months and never got to know the special cat Skeezix. I think he would have been a guide for me an a special friend. I may meet him oneday at the Rainbow Bridge.
    Until then …
