Come Laugh With Us - In Honor of Madi

Abby T. Lab here. We are joining  Madi's special friend

who is hosting the "Come Laugh With Us" Blog Hop to remember our beloved friend Diva Madi the Cat who went to the Rainbow Bridge this year.

Madi was one of the first "BIG" personalities we noticed when we moved to Blogville - she was always so busy in the community, welcoming, creating fun and hijinks, just genuinely fun to be around.
Whether she was busting a move on the dance floor, or flooring the gas pedal of her car, life was always an adventure filled with laughter when Madi was around.

So many events, cookouts, and roundups and car rallies and most special for many of us the Pawlympics!

Madi was always the kind of cat that lived so outside the box, doing things that others were never brave enough to try, living each day in the fullest.

Me, I'm just a dog, so my life was a lot simpler.  Thank you, Madi for inspiring to do so much more!
We miss you Madi!
We are also especially grateful to her creative and loving people who shared her life with us with great joy and humility. May her memories bring you comfort.


  1. Dear Abby and Mom....thank you for this most wonderful post for our Come Laugh with us hop. We were never afraid to try anything...even mom when it came to learning Pizap....that was scary all the times she tried to cut me out and put me somewhere I would not have normally gone. You and your Guy Frankie were such fun a pawties and
    your food truck teased my feline tongue.
    Loads of love and hugs Angel Madi your bfffffffffffffffff

  2. Madi was so BIG for all of us - she was friend to all. She had a heart of gold, and we so miss her.

  10. we miss her too... it is like losing a part of us... and we feel incomplete now... but in our heart she is still there... furever... and ever...

  11. Not my blog so I'm not trying to link to it, but have Madi's fans met Loulou at livingwithloulou dot com?

    Also...if anyone is looking for a cat who's a real character and loves attention, a Cat Sanctuary near me has a Senior Queen who we think might like to step down and manage humans only. If I ever met a cat who'd like to dictate a regular blog about senior cats, 11-year-old tabby Rue is it. She's indicated willingness to take over my blog but I have a commitment to Samantha and Serena.
