TOOLOOSE: 2000 - 2011

THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF TOOLOOSE WOOD

1. I lev my toyz to girl kittee.
2. I lev my ideaz to Pat Wood author even tho she will nut du justiz to them.
3. I lev peeze to the wurld.







"I'd rather be ashes than dust..." He lived his life to the fullest.


What is there to say?
Cardio myopathy is the leading cause of sudden death in otherwise healthy cats. We miss him horribly. Tooloose was well known in the harbor as a "bow guard". He was an escape artiste. And a writer.
His opus REVENGE OF THE ALIEN SPACE MONKEEZ remains a testament to his talent and is unfinished.
Like Truman Capote I can only find paragraphs and vague outlines. There was a detailed plan on his future book tour and interview with Barbara Walters. And the photos he wanted in People magazine.
I offer this all as a memorial...

He was a cat among cats, a talker who walked the talk, and the best damn Pooch a man could want. In his honor, I am now ...

I'm so sorry for your loss. I've enjoyed your stories of Tooloose and his neverending quest to be a famous author over the years I've been following your blog. :(

My heart goes out to you. He was indeed a special cat, and much loved.

It's been fun to see pictures of your new kitten on facebook. Some holes in our hearts can never be filled, but it's nice to make a place for new life. I hope Tootooloose will bring you years of happiness, and you to him.
