Rest in Peace, DMM

rest in peace, dmm

As if 2012 weren’t a crappy enough year, it ended on an especially sad note as cat blogosphere icon Daisy Mae Maus went to the Rainbow Bridge. 

Known by her many friends simply as DMM, she worked hard keeping the Feline Americans in line, a difficult job that she handled with grace and aplomb. She was preceded in death by FAs Pumpkin and Sparky Fuzzypants, leaving only that goofball Charmee to keep his mom company.

DMM was the penultimate Spicy Vixin, pawpular with mancats across the country. Two very special mancats, Jake and Rocky the Guttercat, have been keeping a spot warm across The Bridge as they’ve waited for her to join them. In honor of her passing, the moniker “Spicy Vixin” has been retired.

    DMM was one of a kind, and I think it’s fitting that Spicy Vixen be rested along with her. I’m really gonna miss her, but I like the idea that she’s hanging with Rocky and Jake and all our other friends…

    Ms. DMM will be missed, but I know all the mancats at the Bridge are celebrating her arrival. 2012 was truly a stoopid year.
