Rainbow Bridge

Lincoln and I don't talk about our cat brother, Mozart, very much. This is probably because while he was our older brother, he no longer lived with us. He had to move back to grandma's house since he tried (unsuccessful) to kill me on numerous occasions.
Sadly, he went over the rainbow bridge this weekend.
He was sixteen years old and just passed away in his sleep.
Even though he hated me with a fiery passion, I always loved him. Every time we went to grandma's house I looked for him. I loved his cat food, his favorite toy ("bear-bear") and loved to play the chase game with him. Mom says Mozart wasn't necessarily playing the chase game as in he was chasing me off but if you ask me that is just logistics.
And of course mom loved him.
Her grandma gave her Mozart when she was ten years old. They had been through a lot, elementary, middle and high school. He moved around her with her when she was in college and lasted through numerous boyfriends.
So here's to Mozart, our dear cat brother that is now crossing the rainbow bridge to wait on the rest of us.
Loved you Mo-Mo, may you find some peace away from two annoying pug siblings finally.


Minnie Moo and Lincoln too


  1. Minnie and Lincoln,
    I'm so sorry to hear that you lost your brother, but it sounds like he had a great life. I bet he'll be waiting on the bridge to pounce some other unknowing pug that comes by!

  2. So sorry for your loss. Mozart was a handsome boy. :(


  3. So sorry to hear about Mozart... We have 3 kitty siblings and love them all (even though not all of them love us back).

    Pugs & Kisses,

    Yoda, Brutus & Ellie

  4. Hugs and licks to you and your mama. Seems he was a "tiger" kitty....they just can't help themselves! I'm sure he loved you in his own way.

  5. We are sorry to hear about Mozart. We are sure he loved you guys too. Take care of your Mommy and Grandma during this sad time.
    Maddy and Owen

  6. I am so sorry for your loss! RIP Mozart!

  7. Oh I am sorry to to hear about Mozart too.
    I know you and your mama loved him so much.
    And knew that.
    I will light a candle for him at the Bridge.
    I have some kitty brothers and sisters at the Bridge that maybe he is saying hello to and playing with right now,, and many butterflys to chase.

  8. So sorry to hear Mozart has moved to the bridge. I agree with Payton he will probably pounce on the next pug by him thinking of you Minnie the whole time.

    Many hugs

  9. ahh we are so sorry to hear about Mozart...

    PS...our word verification for this was "strippr"! Holy inappropriate and WTF????

  11. So sorry to hear that Mozart crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. As Payton mentioned, I'm sure he is stalking the pugs on the other side and having a ball.

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

  12. We are very sorry to hear about Mozart... Such a beautiful kittie brother he was. Give your momma some extra kisses :-)

  13. Sorry Minnie. I fully understand. I would be really sad if anything happened to my sneaky and mean sisteroid Sunshine the Cat.
    Love Noodles
