Farewell to our Daddy-cat Marty...

It is with a very heavy heart that we bid a fond 
farewell to Champion Charmalot Chuzzlewit 
of Chadwickoon aka Marty.

Marty who was our Candy and Tommy's daddy-cat was 
selected to be Joy's mate when she was a lovely young 
thing and ready to have kittens.  I'll always remember 
him serenading her and talking her into his romantic advances!

It wasn't long before Joy was head over paws in love with him. 

Marty came and visited us for a couple days in October of 2001.
I supplied the catnip, tuna, and piped in the Barry White music.
Marty did what he did best win the hearts of his ladies fair. 

Joy was overjoyed with his charms and it didn't take 
long for the two of them to fall deeply in love.

Marty's temPURRament and good looks won Joy over 
and a couple months later he became a kitten-daddy...

Joy gave birth to 4 PURRfect kittens on December 15, 2001.
Marty you live on in Candy and Peace who look just like you.
You live on in the sweet songs of your sons Tommy and Pride.
Your daughter Lovey has your sweet temperament.
Your son Mac was waiting for you today as you crossed
over the rainbow bridge.
You will live forever in our hearts and minds.
You are probably singing away for Dick Clark tonight.
Love you big guy- Rest in Peace!

Yes, it's a lovely tribute to Marty, and so wonderful that you have documented this love story which still resonates today -- even though Marty's gone to the Bridge.

It's out PURRogeny that truly make us immortal.
