Dear Whitey and Friends,
I’ve made a decision. There is a lot of work for this Caped Crusader to do up here on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. I need to start concentrating on getting things in order up here. There are so many beloved pets here that need me to look after them. If you know any of the humans who have lost pets, please tell them they are well and happy now. They’re with me and we’re all OK and waiting for our humans.
That said, this will be my last blog, Dude. It has been a wonderful life for me.
My very early days at Cat Depot saw me sporting a sign about my diabetes. Not sure why I’m wearing flowers but it was all good. That little adornment led to my real adornment…..the cape.
This is my original cape given to me by your mom. It’s the one that matches yours. Of course that lead to a whole wardrobe of capes through the years. Happily all the capes were auctioned off and brought donations to Cat Depot. But this one started it all and my mom has it.
I loved my work especially my association with Cat Depot and my all important blogging.
It’s an honor to have a room at Cat Depot named in my memory. Of course it’s the Executive Director’s office since I always wanted to be in charge. “Mighty Lou Central” was dedicated on Sunday.
My friends and fans participated in a celebration of my life. So many people continue to follow me and love me. I am truly touched.
There is still so much work to do for special needs cats. I cannot be there to go out and talk to people like I did before. I need actual paws on the ground to continue my good work. So, in the next week you will see my successor step into my role. He is also a special needs guy and he’s ready to take on the challenge. He’s young and inexperienced but he has a story and needs that make him special. He will carry on the legacy of Mighty Lou and Friends Like Me.
I’ll let him introduce himself later this week but here’s a sneak preview…..
Look at those eyes. He’s serious about his work and he will carry on my vision.
So I leave you and go to work up here. I’ll be there in spirit for you everyday. Remember me as I remember you.
The plaque above Mighty Lou Central says “He lived, He loved and He did it his way.” And I did.
Thank you everyone.
Mighty Lou, Caped Crusader
Whitey’s Final Word to Mighty Lou
To my best friend in the whole world, Mighty Lou…
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking since you sent me your final word. You are doing the right thing, good buddy. You need to tend to business on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. I can handle things here. Don’t worry…I will carry on as if you were here; working hard for all our friends at Cat Depot and especially the special needs kitties.
You and I had a good run, but it is time to move on. I have made the decision to retire my cape. It just doesn’t feel right to wear it without you here.
I will work just as hard and I know you will be sending me extra powers. So for now, this is it…the last time I will wear this cape.
