A week ago today, Homer the Blind Wondercat came to the Rainbow Bridge. His Mom & Dad didn't tell the world for a few days, giving them time to grieve privately.
The news hit everyone hard and Mama was no different. She shed some tears knowing what Homer's Mom was going through, wishing she could offer some comfort. Homer touched many people and changed many lives just by people knowing about him. Mama is especially thankful that his Mom wrote the book about him. It helped her make a very special friend.
Back in October of 2010, Homer's mom, Gwen Cooper, came to Kansas City to read from her book. Mama decided to go, even though she was going to have to go by herself. It turned out that I was tweeting with @Ryker_Tyker that day and found out his mom was going too! We worked it out so that our moms would meet at the reading.
It was a great night! Mama got to meet both Ryker's mom and Homer's mom! Mama and Ryker's mom have since become very special friends and it's all thanks to Homer and his mom.
I made sure to welcome Homer to the Rainbow Bridge and thank him purrsonally for leading Mama to such a good friend.
