Fierce Fighter Friday

We were just visiting the Whiskers & Purrs blog and found out that today is Fierce Fighter remembrance day. It is to remember all of the furs who fought illness or struggles and have gone on before us to the Rainbow Bridge. We would like to honor and remember our angel brofur, Colin Feral.

Colin came into our home in mid-June, 2006. He was skinny, not neutered, and had a small wound on his front leg. Other than the wound he had he got a clean bill of health from the vet. Mom got him fixed, got his shots, and she thought he would be with us for a long, long time. Little did she know that he had a form of lymphoma. Colin became ill about two weeks after receiving his vaccines. He was lethargic and didn't want to eat. His blood work showed that his white blood cell count was over the top. Further inspection showed the cancer cells. Mom and the vet decided it would be best for Colin to help him cross the Bridge. He was a brave boy and mom held him through the crossing. Colin was about three years old.

Colin loved to lay in the bathroom sink. One of mom's friends photoshopped this picture of him so he appeared to be taking a bubble bath:

It still makes us smile when we see this picture of Colin.


  1. Thanks for sharing the story about Colin. I am glad he got to know love and kindness before he had to go to the Bridge.

  2. Colin was a lovely fella and it's a great thing that he knew love and comfort before he left.
