Mighty Lou Gets His Last Word

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.

 

Mighty Lou's early days at Cat Depot

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou's original 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.

 

 

 

Mighty Lou loved blogging

 

 

I loved my work especially my association with Cat Depot and my all important blogging.

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou Central

 

 

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…..

Mighty Lou's Successor has serious eyes

 

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.

Migjhty Lou, Caped Crusader

 

Thank you everyone.

Love,
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.

Whitey Wobbles wears his cape for the last time

 

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.

Mighty Lou Heard It

Dear Whitey and Friends, 

Can you believe I heard something from the other side of the Rainbow Bridge? And did you notice I used the word “hear?” Yes, I can hear up here! All of the animals who were not physically perfect down there are perfect up here! Please tell the humans who loved them so much that we are all in perfect health!

Anyway, this is what I heard:

I heard that I am going to be a TV star once again! My friend, Marsha Panuce is going to feature me on her TV program again.

Mighty Lou does his happy dance

 

 

 

And this was my reaction:

My happy dance!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou and Marsha Panuce

 

 

Here’s Marsha and me. She loves me so. Marsha’s show is called Animal Outtakes. It’s on WWSB ABC7 in Sarasota. The show will air on Saturday, April 18th at 6:30 AM.

I know you’re up early but if your humans oversleep, they can catch it on www.mysuncoast.com.

 

 

 

 

Mighty Lou is still a winner

 

 

And so, Dude, your old Mighty Lou is still a winner……even now!

Thanks to Marsha and thanks to everyone for continuing to keep my memory and spirit alive!

I love you all.

Mighty Lou, Caped Crusader

 

From the Files of Mighty Lou

Hi Whitey,

Don’t freak, my man. I was not able to garner up enough cape power to get back to you. Sorry. But I don’t want my good work and my legacy to help special needs cats to stop because I had to leave. I have left behind volumes of my oh-so-creative and ever-entertaining writings to still thrill my public. Your Ol’ Mighty Lou cannot be silenced. The work is too big and has to go on.

So……

​…writings and pictures will go on.

Mighty Lou at His Computer

 

My weekly blog will go on and my Facebook page will go on.

I have left instructions in my files that someday, somewhere, someone will take my place. (I already have some ideas).

Until you receive further instruction from me, know that I’m here, on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge, watching over special needs cats everywhere.

I miss everyone and I know everyone is sad because I’m no longer there.

 

Don’t be sad.

Continue my work and my files will direct the path.

With cape power from beyond, I am,

Mighty Lou, Caped Crusader

The Mighty Lou Memorial Fund was set up to continue his mission and a very special room at Cat Depot will be dedicated to Mighty Lou. Donate to Mighty Lou’s Memorial Fund.

Response from Whitey Wobbles

I hear you good buddy! You just made my day, because I do miss my best caped buddy (BCB) very much.

I’m staying on this side of the rainbow bridge to carry on as you direst! You can count on Whitey Wobbles!

Whitey Wobbles and his friends

 

I have been teaching Daisy Doodles and Harley a few things that will help us also. They are all for helping special needs cats and Cat Depot cats in general. They both donated their allowance to buy food for the monthly food bank.

Keep up the instructions from wherever you are…good to hear from you, ML!

Your Caped friend,
Whitey Wobbles
