Wow, we don’t even know how to start. We remember Skeezix from way back. We actually remember all the cats talking about him for awhile before we finally found a link to his blog. Gemini started back in 2005 and Skeezix started a couple of months before she did. But everyone loved Skeezix and his fashion sense, which we confess, Gemini did not have.
Just when we thought that we knew everything about everything, Skeezix and his family would come up with something new. Our favorite posts were a series of posts about Skeezix waiting to go to school on the short bus. Part of our love for this was not only in showing Skeezix’ excitement for everything about life but the fact that clearly the Food Lady and Mr. Tasty Face were willing to play along.
Skeezix is eager and waiting for the morning to arrive to start, then they are looking both ways, to be sure not to miss it, and then you can see them settling in for a wait, they’re excited again when Skeezix thinks he hears it, and time goes on and they are still waiting (and Mr TF apparently had a party) and poor Skeezix, the short bus didn’t show up and he can’t wake Mr. Tasty Face and it’s getting cold! We know it was one of the wurst days of his life, but we loved those posts, largely because the woman just wasn’t expecting them all…
We will miss the unexpected with that boy. He brought us all a lot of joy during his short life. Our thoughts are with the Food Lady who is an equally wonderful person and we hope that will find another muse to keep writing and sharing her wit and perspective on life. She is one of the true joys we have found when meeting up with the humans of the blogosphere.
If you wish to contribute to a memorial that we will be giving to The Food Lady and Mr. Tasty Face to donate to the shelter of their choice, here is the link.
