A little about my self -

I joined weather Underground in August of 2005 right after they opened the blogging feature. I have been a weather hobbyist since the middle 60's when I lived on the west coast of Florida, north of the Tampa Bay area. I currently live in a small community in central Illinois.

I have been through numerous Hurricanes during my life time. The worse being Hurricane Camille in August 17,1969, A Cat 5, where the eye passed over the location I was at. That being Biloxi, Ms when I was in the USAF stationed at Keesler AFB.

We actually had a ten minute shower today; how weird was that?

Hope today has been a better one!

Sorry to hear of Mojo's crossing over, Wabit. I know how that feels; It's no wonder that people who have pets live longer -- they give us so much and ask so little, even cats...... maybe especially cats.

If I may offer a small bit of advice...... plant something over where Mojo is buried, and let yourself grieve; no stiff upper lip my friend, let it out and often, because he was part of your family. This may someday become one of your favourite places to sit and think.

When you wake in the middle of the night thinking that you've felt Mojo jump on you, when you feel like something unseen brushes against you leg, let it out. I think their energies stay around, ever faithful.

If you have no other cats, one day down the road, another cat will choose you. You will know when. This new cat will never replace Mojo, but become a new friend you will grow old with, and ......... don't be surprised if the new cat seems to exhibit a trait or two that was unique to your friend.

Peace, friend

Thanks everyone for their kind comments ..

MoJo brought much joy to our family and especially me as he would lay in my lap or behind me in my chair as I would track weather here on my computer .. some what of a weather buff himself he would let me know 30 minutes or more before a storm would hit .. guessing he could hear the thunder rolling .. he would lay at my feet until the storm was past before jumping into "His" chair falling asleep ..

Many pleasant memories ..

Oh, Wab...

I'm so sorry to hear that you've lost Mojo.

It's the part I hate about having pets. Even so, I can't imagine my life without one. They give us so much love.

Thank you for all of your comments ..

Pets are loved much as we love our own children, as they bring so much Joy into our lives ..

We had a small service with the Grand-kids wanting to be here too .. MoJo was buried in our pet cemetery we have in the back of my property .. with all of the other pets the kids and us have had in the past 30 years ..

He will be missed by all of us !!

Sorry to read of your loss Wabit. Special pets fill a big place in our hearts and bring us lots of happiness. When they leave us, it leaves an equally big hole there.
