Thanksgiving and Angel Joey's Gotcha Day


This is our first Thanksgiving  without our dear, funny, Angel Joey.  He was gotted on a Thanksgiving  14 years ago after getting into yet another cat fight and getting wounded - he was being attacked because he was a lover not a fighter.  Mom lured him into the back porch while Pop was cooking dinner to bring over Grandma's house.

In the middle of preparing for all the festivities the peeps had to try to coral Joey on the porch and move him to a small place in the house so he could be treated for his sores and let him learn to live inside.  He recovered and became the goodwill ambassador to all the others cats that would come to live with us.

Synchronized napping with sister Minnie

He loved everyone.  He was happiest in the middle of a pile of cats. He made Mom and Pop smile. He had huge eyes that would stare into your soul.  He was love incarnate.  We miss you Joey and think of you everyday!  We are so thankful we had your love in our lives for 13 years.  Enjoy some our favorite photos of Angel Joey.

Never one to pass up a box.

Wishing you all a day full of  love, laughter, smiles, family, making memories that remain forever. Thank you for your friendship, kindness and visits to our blog and Facebook page. We appreciate your friendship very much! Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Wildcat Woods.

I know this Thanksgiving will be a little different without Joey, but I think sharing turkey and some nip in his honor will help. Purrs and have a lovely Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all! Aww, I know you must miss Joey so much this day, but these were wonderful memories of him. What a sweet guy.

A lovely lovely tribute to a piece of your heart that is missing today. Even though I know that the love lives on, it is hard to not feel the physical loss as I do too with my Abby girl this year. Happy celebrations just aren't something my own heart is up to this year. But the memories will comfort us both and make us smile with warm thought so Joey and Abby.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at ManxMnews.

What a touching and loving tribute to mewz Angel Joey, he looks like he was one fine mancat. We lost my sister Černy a year ago at age 10. Her absence has been hard for us too, even though this was the second Thanksgiving without her. My Mom says each of us fur babies hold a special place in our human's heart and we are never forgotten as we cannot wait until the day we are and will be together again. I am happy we will see our Angel Černy again, and I know mewz Angel Joey is enjoying his life at the Bridge and looking forward to the day he will see his Mom, Dad, and fur siblings again. Life is a circle whose turn may take us away from those we love to another place for a while, yet never unbroken will always bring us back together again.
