For the first few years I was blogging, I was sort of doing it in a vacuum, and not really aware of the other cats out there. In 2007 or 2008, when I finally discovered the Cat Blogosphere and joined Twitter, one of the first cats I got to know was Skeezix. I mean, how could you not know Skeezix?
Although Skeezix and I were never close buddies, I respected him a lot for his many accomplishments. Our humans met eventually and have hung out together at various conferences. So when Skeezix was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor some weeks ago, we were devastated over here. This has been one of the Cat Blogosphere’s saddest losses.
In honor of Skeezix, many of his friends have banded together to make a donation in his memory to a shelter or rescue that his family chooses. If you would like to give something to this, you can do so by clicking below:

Spitty the Kitty says
I can’t believe I didn’t get to know Skeezix! From everything we’ve read, he was an AWESOME ManCat, AND a fellow lover of the PINK! Plus, I think he was kind of my neighbor! We wish him Godspeed on his journey and send many purrs to his people.

We’ll miss Skeezix…he was one of a kind.
Skeezix was one of the first kitties we found to and we were so in awe. Dear Skeezix was indeed a special one and will live in our hearts forever.

Our sister-before-us, Sweet Praline knew Skeezix more than we did, but since Mom Paula met Karen, we considered him a good furriend, too. He will be missed.
Cathy Keisha says
It’s wonderful to see all the pink honoring Skeezix in the CB. I must admit even though I knew OF him, I didn’t really know him that well.
Skeezix was one of the first blogs we read before we started our own blog. We will be greatly missed by so many.

We’ll miss his unique brand of humor … and his mad vocabulary.

Skeezix touched so many lives, and he is missed and forever loved by so many.
