OBITUARY: Kismet Big Mancat has Gone to the Bridge

kismet the big mancat

I can praktikly not tipe cuz my face is leeking so bad.

My deerest oldest frend in the Cat Blogosphere, Kismet the Big Mancat, went to the Rainbow Bridge this morning. He had suffered from cardiomyopathy for a cupple of yeers. Before he took the walk to the Bridge, he peed all over his ladey’s bed, which was fitting. He was sleeping with her when he passed.

Kismet was like a big bruther to me, but not as lowd as my big bruther Mao. For thoze of you who weren’t arownd for the beginning of the Cat Blogosphere, Kismet contributed sevrul grate werds to the CB vokabulary. Werds like “mancat” and “whisker humps.”

Speeking of humps, Kismet liked to hump blankets, and that’s how I got the idea for my Boner Blankie wich has made my life much much much more plezhurable and helps me deel with da urjes.

Kismet also led the charge of Feline Fashunistas. He deezerves a spot in the Mancat GQ Hall of Fame, cuz he reely knew how to dress. His stile tended toward stripey tshirts and hoodies.

Kismet tawt me all about being a Mancat. We kinda growed up together. Once he sed, “Win in dowt, pee on it,” wich was good advice altho I never reely did that cuz I wuzn’t as brave as Kismet win it came to gitting in trubble.

Kismet lived on the meen streets of Brooklin New Yawk with a pak of killer chiwawas win he was reskyooed by his lady. At leest, that’s his story. I always admired his street schmarts.

Kismet is survived by his ladey, his sister Sophie and Henry the Bun. And his bestest best frend ever, Skeezix the Cat.

I love you, Kizzy. I hope you and Rocky have fun tawking about Mancat stuff and Spicy Vixins in a nice warm spot across the Bridge.

  5. This is a sad sad day. Kismet the MANCAT led a wonderful life protecting his lady. Safe to say he will be watching over his hyooman from up above just as she watched over him when he was on earth. He will also be peeing on his cloud in heaven.

  13. Great tribute. Mommie remembers how much she fell in love with you and Kismet when you both would converse in the comments section your two blogs. The two of your were her inspirations for Jake and Bathsheba’s blog. Mommie remembers that Kismet was always impressed with Bathsheba’s extra toes. We wish we could have met him when he lived in Virginia.
    RIP you big mancat.

  14. Dood, you did Kismet a solid with this. He was an awesome dood, and we should all totally do a Whisker Hump Wednesday.

    I think in his honor I’ll go pee on something tonight.

    1. Oh Max, this made me laugh through my tears. Thank you. Kismet would like it most if you could find a futon to pee on, that was always his favorite.

  15. I think we should make a Whisker Hump Wednesday is Kismet’s honor…My bestest cat, Bo, also had HCM and I, too, lost him in June 2005, in the middle of the night, 10 years after his diagnosis and 5 years into being treated for CRF. There is not a day goes by that I don’t miss him

  16. Skeezix, that is a truly grrreat obituary fur a grrreat cat, so suiting fur tha Big Dude. I’s gonna link to it on the CB so effurryone can read it.
    Me and Mommy ML’s been leaky-eyed also.
    Kismet was larger than life, literally and figuratively.
    He’s left a huge big hole that no one can ever fill.
    Love & Purrs,
