Any longtime cat blogger knows and loved Daisy Mae Maus and the Feline Americans. DMM and the boys were a mainstay for many years. One by one the Feline Americans went to The Bridge, and DMM followed, leaving just Charmee behind to look after his mom. Quite unexpectedly, Charmee decided to go The Bridge on Thursday. He’d gone in for routine dental work when they discovered his kidneys trashed from undiagnosed diabetes. He’d celebrated his tenth birthday in June.
We can’t believe they’re all gone. Say hi to Skeezix for us, will ya?
