This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do. It is with a heavy heart that I write this to you. I have proCATstinated for weeks but I can wait no longer. There is no time left.
What’s happening is big and involves something new for Mighty Lou. It involves a mailbox. Yes, it was specially designed for your Mighty Lou but that doesn’t make me like it any more. This is how I am going to have to get your mail from now on.
I cannot write to you like I have been. Why?
Because I’m moving far, far away and I won’t have access to my usual office. Yes, I’m leaving you. I’m moving with my family and this will be my last official blog to you.
I looked it up on the globe and it’s very, very far away. Very far away from you, my caped friend. I will be out of touch forever.
My family has decided to leave town, break all ties with our current life and start somewhere else. That means no one will have the pleasure of seeing Mighty Lou ever again.
More important to me, I won’t be able to talk to you or to anyone at Cat Depot ever again. No, no Whitey. You can’t go with me. Where I’m going is too far away and you have your family here. I have to go alone and I’m very sad about that.
I’ll miss the Friend Raisers Committee because my mom and I have to resign. I enjoyed it when I got to go to the luncheons and the meetings.
I’ll miss everything about Cat Depot. They always made me feel so welcome.
But you’re the one I’ll miss most. So this is Good-Bye, my caped brother. I’m off to a life-changing forever adventure and I won’t ever see you again. Please remember me with love as I will remember you. Say good-bye to your family from me.
I will be looking in my mailbox every day for a letter from you. Please write often as this is very hard for me and I’m very sad. I don’t want to leave but you know the humans sometimes make us do things we don’t want to.
So with my cape flying at half-mast I must say good-bye forever.
P.S. April Fools!!!!
I’m laughing my head off!! I’m not going anywhere! See ya next week, Dude!!
You Scared Me!
Do you know today is March 31st? April Fool’s day is tomorrow. I almost believed your email until I realized what you were up to.
You got my Mom good! She almost cried. Weak humans! I knew you would never leave me and Cat Depot. Us Caped Heroes are much too dedicated to The Friend Raisers and helping our fellow felines at Cat Depot to leave. WE still have a lot of work ahead of us, before we can retire.
This weekend was Cat Depot’s Food Bank – they give food to families who cannot afford to feed their cats. My Mom’s friends sent food to help out with this great project. This happens every month, so I have to keep reminding all my human friends to donate.
Just to let you know, I laughed my head off when I read your email this morning! Good April Fool’s joke, Caped Buddy!
Have a great April Fool’s Day….you are off to a great start!
