Our friend Milo

By Morning Scratch staff

We just found out through Honey P. Sunshine's blog that our friend Milo has died. We are very sad. He was only 4 years old.

By Bogdan, the editor
Milo was a big inspiration for me. Years ago, before I used the Internet frequently, I discovered Milo's page on Catster. The following are some things I remember about Milo from way back in the day, years ago when I first met him.
Thinking about my friend Milo, who is no longer with us.

Milo was:
• The very first cat I corralled on Catster. I was very impressed with his page. Truthfully, I wanted to be like him.
• One of my first friends on Catster. He welcomed me and my sisters to the Internet world.
• How I persuaded the Investor to sign me up and devote time to my Catster page. She was equally as impressed with Milo's page, and she supported my efforts to be as cool as Milo.
• A big supporter of my Catster page. When I thought I wasn't doing a good job, he told me I was doing great!

Milo, you will be greatly missed. Purrs to your family through this difficult time.
