Sad News From Connecticut

Cyberpaw pals we have sad news to relay.  Our friends at Moon Dance Huskies experienced a house fire on Monday 22 January.  Fortunately the pups and humans made it out safely.  Sadly three of the five cats crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  Early that morning their Dog Mom woke up, heard a pop and saw a six foot flame in her bedroom.  Lakota and Crystal made it to safety.  However our cybercat pals OJ, Latte and Beloved ran and hid and crossed the bridge.  Skye welcomed them there, but we are sad to see such young ones cross the bridge.  Here is a link to the story about the fire and a video clip The husky you wee in the video is our pal Lakota being led away from the fire.
Latte and OJ Relaxing
Dad has known Skye's Dog Mom since the days of Essex and Deacon.  All three are Angel Dogs now.  Right now Skye’s Mom is living in a hotel.  The frame of the house is okay as is the roof.  The rest of the house is damaged and they will not be able to move in for quite sometime.  The sled team is the animal shelter and their Dog Mom goes every day to feed and talk to them.

Sherman Missing Some Fur - 2012
We get together most Sundays to chat, and it was quite a jolt when we found out about the bridge crossing.  Some of you may remember the great fur growing race between Sherman and OJ during November to December 2012.  We will think of OJ crossing the pond to visit our pal Blue.  Then there were conversations with Anne and Betty's Mom. 

We will miss our cyber-cat pals and their tall tails.

Dog Speed,

Sherman & Gemi

Wow, it just goes to show u that u never know what can happen. So sad the kitties passed, but a couple made it out ok as well as the dogs and the humans. My heart goes out to the owners. It's sad to lose a beloved pet, but this was particularly grevious because of the way it happened. Prayers and my heart goes out to you! Please keep us posted of yur situation and the house rebuild.

Oh I'm so sorry to read this. That is just too sad. Horrible to wake up to that and not be able to get everybody out. Hugs to all of them, and to you too.
