We Have Lost Mama Cat

If you don’t know yet, The Cult of Otis has lost Mama Cat to The Bridge. Please let them know you are with them in this trying time…so soon after losing precious Otis.

The Blog of Otis

Disciples of Otis,

My name is Kevin. My wife Julie and I are the Guardians that, until today, have chosen to remain in the background of The Cult of Otis. I can’t do that today though. Not after what has happened. I cannot write a story through this pain.

Yesterday morning, Julie was sitting on the couch and Mama Cat was resting next to her. Suddenly, Mama Cat began to show signs of discomfort and distress. We rushed her to our veterinarian and then received a steady stream of bad news all day as the results of blood work, x-rays and other diagnostics came in.  Mama Cat was dying.

A day that started like any other ended with us having to say our final goodbyes to Mama Cat, and that day came before our tears for Otis have even had a chance to stop, let alone dry. We are both…

  3. I have visited with my purrs of condolence. I am very sad.

    • We are still crying for Mama Cat today; we just loved her. We had been preparing for Leader Otis’s journey to The Bridge and were still so very sad when he had to leave. But we had hopes for Mama Cat to have more years and instead she got 5 months…but months filled with loving care and kindness…her Miracle came at the ending of her life…she ‘was’ the miracle

  4. This is very sad news,xx Speedy

  9. We didn’t know Otis, but have jumped over to his blog to leave our condolences for Mama Cat. This looks like a great blog, and we are very sad that we never had the opportunity to know either of the kitties. Thanks for sharing. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    • one of the singularly best written, and most creative blogs I read. They can create a story from almost any photo…amazes me that they have never won writing awards. They are so humble and focus on what is important to them…promoting the need for all cats, everywhere, to live either safely inside or within a safe indoor/outdoor enclosure…always, always under supervision if ever outside. Doesn’t matter if one agreed with that philosophy, it is theirs and they live by it. I believe that Kevin in a naturalist biologist or something like that works for a well known animal and wildlife rescue and Julie I think teaches. Mama Cat was recently brought into their home after living all her life mostly outside; their neighbor did not allow either of their cats, Mama Cat was one, inside hardly at all. Rain or cold…she was only 14, but at least in her last months she was safe inside and so loved. We loved Mama Cat in our home, she was such a marvelous jumper! Her Flying Squirrel Move was never beaten! And she taught all the Cult of Otis and readers like Savannah how to be sure to always, always catch whatever was on the end of the wand toy…”watch” “anticipate” “act” and show a proper “kill face”. Savannah studied her every move. You must read some of their blog posts; just “search” using Mama Cat and you will see many incredible photos of her in action. Sorry to go on so, losing Leader Otis was devastating but anticipated for months; Mama Cat was shocking and only one month after losing Leader Otis

  10. We will go right over. I am just so sad.

  11. This just breaks our hearts.

  12. We went to visit, thanks for telling us.

  13. Oh no, that is so sad, my heart is with them

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
