Sombre SEIturday: A Farewell to WHITEY

Today we find ourselves having to bid farewell to one of our heroes, WHITEY of The Daily Gs.

We well remember that day, in the summer of 2009, when Whitey was first rescued by Mom Barb. He was in such a horrendous state, having clearly suffered major trauma. Despite all that happened to him he was such a sweet boy and captured all our hearts, as well as those of his brothers Gandalf and Grayson, and later on, his sister Graycie.

We watched with growing dread as he grew sicker and sicker since the beginning of this year. Each time he seemed to turn a corner, something else would come up. Barb loved him and cared for him with all her heart, but his time among us was up, and he has now gone to the Bridge.

Whitey, you were loved not just by one family in Georgia but by thousands all over the world. Sad as we are to lose you, we can imagine how thrilled many at Rainbow Bridge are to see you. We will miss you, Big Guy. SRSLY!


  1. Thank you Virginia, and alla the Chans.

  2. Sory to hear about your furiend Whitey :(

  3. We are sorry fur the loss of your furiend -

    I am sure he's livening up things North of The Rainbow Bridge -


  4. Mum used to follow Whitey on their blog before we came to live with her, right from when Barb found him.
    She visited less after she had us and started to blog about us but she still loved to visit now and again.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. What a lovely tribute to such a much-loved ManCat...we are truly sad he is gone, but we are truly happy that he found Barb and had 3 years of love...Our Teri and Cat Daddy were only married 7 years when he died, but Teri said those were the best 7 years ever...that is how we would like to remember Whitey's life...

  6. What a lovely tribute to a special kitty.

    Purrs and kisses,
