Waffles Wednesday: Remembering Skeezix Blogging Pioneer


Um, hi everybuddy. Waffles here.

Today the Cat Blogosphere is membering a very special and famous cat named Skeezix. The Boss tole me he was a blogging pioneer.


I never got a chance to ride in his pioneer wagon or stare up at the stars with him. But legend tells that he was one COOL cat. He was famous for his sunglasses, his mad moving making skills and his command of the English language.

The Boss is cool and all...I mean I have to live her with her. But Skeezix is someone I can reely look up to.

Goodbye Skeezix. Say hi to all the kitties that came before us. I hope you brought enough nip & fish for everybuddy.

Happy Trails, Skeezix.  We'll miss you.
love, Waffles & Katie


A Friends of Skeezix Memorial Drive has been set up to honor our furiend's memory.  
Donations are open now through June 30.  
Rock the PINK. ♥

  2. Skeezix taught Ichiro everything he knows about being a mancat. This is not to suggest that Ichiro listened...

  4. We didn't know Skeezix, but we are learning he was a LEGEND! Plus, any ManCat who isn't afraid to show his inner PINK had to have been awesome!

  6. I didn't know Skeezix. I knew about him but had not checked him out until I saw his Mom win best video award and BlogPaws this year. I am disappointed I did not get to know him better and I am sorry for his family.
