Farewell Toby Toblerone

Sir Toby Toblerone, a quadriplegic cat with a fascination for watching trains, was the official mascot for the Lancaster, UK train station.  Toby had no feeling from the neck down.  Read more here.

Toby unexpectedly passed away yesterday.  Having watched for a long while on his FB page, I am stunned by his sudden death.  Toby and his humans often aired live broadcasts, and he was such a gentle, sweet kitty, with an interest in life.  He had regular massages, was groomed often, and his every need taken care of.  I checked in with Toby daily, just like my blogging friends.

My admiration for his humans has no bounds; they loved Toby without question.  Obviously, I am not alone in my sorrow; folks all around the globe have offered condolences.

Angel Toby, here's hoping that you are running free over The Rainbow Bridge, with your body in purrfect health, and that the wave of love for you buoys the spirits of your grieving family.

  3. The poor little fellow. The good thing about being a cat in such a situation is that he never would have wondered how life would have been with a working body. To him, his life was how it could only have been - and it was apparently made very pleasant by his human friends. Thank goodness for them. Godspeed, Toby.

  16. Toby's mum here. Thank you for this and thank you for all the comments. Toby was a very special boy and we are missing him so much. The outpouring of grief for him is overwhelming and we feel very blessed that we were his mum and dad but also that we could share him with the world. We always wanted to show that animals with disabilities could lead happy and fulfilled lives and Toby certainly did that. Thank you again. xxx
