Flashback Friday

I saw the Creek Cats post on last Christmas where they were able to remember and write once again about their beloved Cal, and I thought...I'll copy that idea, so I can write about Mojo!

Here's Mojo hanging out on a chair in what is now the dining room...we didn't have a table last year, so we moved this chair in here from the study, while the tree was up. Mojo loved sitting on this blanket...doesn't he look festive?
We knew this would be his last Christmas with us, so we spoiled him in any way we could. If he would eat better on the carpet, then so be it. Notice his red toe nails on his back foot. We put the soft paws on so when he scratched at his mouth, he wouldn't keep cutting it. His allergies always presented with a sore on his mouth, that itched and burned. The nail covers helped keep him from making it worse, and he didn't mind wearing them at all!
Here's another shot of him in his favorite chair. You can see his tumor (fibrosarcoma) here, and believe it or not, it got a lot bigger before the end. He was doing well at this time, still eating and playing some. He was on some pain med, but still loving life. He was such a good boy, and I will always remember him.
This is me and my sister (Auntie) last Christmas at our Granny's house. I'm in the green sweater.

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

  4. Nice tribute to Mojo. (plus we love that name)He was a very handsome mancat. We've been thinking a lot of our angel brother & sisters lately too.

    Mum did a double take when she saw your photo. You look very much like her sister in law when she was younger.

  9. Lovely picture of you and your sister! And what a great idea to honour Mojo at this time of year. He was so well loved and pampered -- but then he needed and deserved it.

    I'll always remember him as the Groucho Marx kitty, of course!
