Homer the Blind Wondercat
The furry little hero of Gwen Cooper's Homer's Odyssey
lived a most excellent life, and is the reason The Tonk made his way into my life. After reading of Gwen's experience with a disabled kitten, I figured, "why not?" and jumped head-long into adopting and loving a Tonkinese with a brain injury.
But oh, it's hard to say good-bye to the little guy who made that possible. And if I'm hurting like this, I can't imagine how badly Gwen is hurting.
We love our furkids to distraction, and they're all so important and change lives. But this little black furkid with no ability to see where he was going wandered his way into millions of peoples' lives and we will none of us ever look at life quite the same way again.
Safe passage, Homer. There's a little Blonde Bombshell and a pint-sized Calico Curmudgeon waiting at the Bridge. They'll help you get the feel of the place and be as happy as you can be till Gwen gets there.
