The girls and I received some sad news this past Sunday that our friend, Au (of Katz Tales Facebook page and multiple book fame, and a fellow Tabby Cat Club Member) went to Rainbow Bridge this past Sunday morning.
The late Au and his late friend, Scoop, as well as friends Guido and Target, were subjects of their mom, Ellen Whyte's delightful books about their rescue stories and many adventures living in the suburbs of Kuala Lampur, Malaysia. Besides being a great muse, Au was an extraordinary connoisseur of ham and roast chicken, making my Abbi jealous at times because Au's snacks were always better than hers.
Au's friends and fans, such as myself, are forever grateful that Au's life will live on in photos and in his talented mother's writing in their local newspapers and in her books. I reviewed Whyte's book, Katz Tales: Au and Target, The Early Years. I encourage my readers to read that book as well as Whyte's other books. Besides enjoying stories about cats as I do, I found it fascinating to read about the life and times of cats who lived so very far away from where I live.
I thank Ellen for sharing Au's life. Ateret, Livia, Abbi and I send our condolences to Ellen, Target and Guido.
