I just took another adventure. This was my final adventure. I passed over the Rainbow Bridge last night. Please don’t be sad, I don’t want that. What I want is for you to remember me for my Mightiness and my caped strength.
I was special needs and my second chance at life was special.
The world is a big place. It’s frightening for a cat on their own. But the lucky ones who are saved and given a second chance get to enjoy it. I wanted to make a mark on this new world I was given and worked hard to do that.
I charted my own course and enjoyed every ride. My mission was to show people that special needs cats are indeed special. We may take extra effort, but we’re so worth it.
My way of showing people that was to make them laugh. You just laughed, didn’t you? Good. I don’t want you to be sad.
No one loved a good party more than me! Bad Legs? What bad legs. I could shake it up pretty good!
I wasn’t intimidated by anyone. Jackson Galaxy thinks he’s somebody? He’s met his match in me.
I wasn’t intimidated by public speaking either. If I could get a chance to talk about special needs, I was there. When Mighty Lou speaks they listen (take that, E.F.Hutton).
My mission was always to promote adoption, support and love for special needs. I did what I could whenever I could to help Friends Like Me.
Of course I did it the Mighty Lou way because no one admired me more than me!
Except when it was the entire population admiring me….
No one liked a party more me. And, by the way, no one looked better in a tux than me.
Actually, I looked good in just about anything.
I weathered all kinds of storms in my life……but I did it with my Mighty Lou smile and those piercing eyes.
I fought battles in my life. Not the battle of special needs but the battle to get humans to love us as we are. I was one of the very lucky ones to be so loved by so many.
So I leave some parting words for humans everywhere. Please consider opening your heart to a special needs animal. Special needs simply means they need a little extra. In exchange they give so much more back.
The Mighty Lou legacy will go on.
Friends Like Me will go on.
My love for you will go on.
Thank you for reading my blog and letting me share my Mighty Lou-isms. I enjoyed it.
Remember me with a smile. Keep the memory, humor and uniqueness of Mighty Lou alive.
I loved you all.
Mighty Lou, Caped Crusader
