Dear Dawn and George, Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of your mother, Shannon. She and Mr. Peabody were among my first cat frends on FB and I can say one of my most treasured friends. Reading about daily life with Shannon in Shamong with Mr. Peabody, Smarty Jones, and Osama was a daily treat. Everything she wrote was entertaining. I looked forward to the "Good Mornings" and "Good Nights" with their hugs to Aunties like me. I learned so many catch phrases, like "green papers", "fish and chippies", "Mewmity","vegetarian" and "diabeeters" (which I have, too.) Knowing your mother has touched my heart and she will be forever in my thoughts and prayers. She was a wonderful person, a compelling writer, an advocate for vets, and an animal lover, and she is gone too soon.

Your Mom's fb page was one of the first that I found. I will forever miss her posts. I enjoyed hearing about her day and the kitties. RIP dear friend Shannon.

My deepest sympathy to you Dawn, Michele, George and Jenny. Like most here, I too am so thankful to have happened upon Mr. Peabody's facebook page and to have known your dear Mother (Meowmy). What fun it was to share in her everyday goings and comings through the eyes of Mr. Peabody, Smarty Jones and Osama bin Kitti. Rest In Peace my dear friend.

I was a late-comer to the pages (Feb 2), but in those few days, I came to appreciate her warmth and humor.

Rest in peace Shannon. It's amazing how many people's lives you have brightened by sharing your life with us. You made us feel like we were all part of your family and we enjoyed hearing stories of your family and your adorable kitties. We miss you! My condolences to your family.

Shannon, Your life and how you shared the details of living your life are a wonderful testament to the good that can be achieved by reaching out beyond our front door. You reached across cities, states, and even countries to build friendships. Those friendships will endure through the continued caring for your family (children, extended friends of aunties and uncles, and of course all animals). You are and will be missed.

Dear Friends and Family of Shannon Claire Puglia:

February 25, 2014

MEWMITY !

As I sit here in The Punkin Room (walls are painted orange), I am trying to think of what I really want to say. I guess I am still in a state of shock and disbelief. I just don't want it to be true. I'm fighting back the tears…as I look around my room…I see my one of my kitties, Cooper lying on the back of the recliner…with the sweetest look on his face…not a care in the world kind of look. A Happy Face. I glance over to the floor, Scooter is curled up on a little fluffy bed, Ms. Cami is snuggled up in a tight curl in the chair. I guess the other two are on the bed with my husband.

I think about Mr. Peabody, Smarty Jones and the “Old Gal”, Osama bin Kitti….I think and wonder…what are they thinking. These kitties must be wondering where is their Meowmy. Why is she NOT here with us? Why did she go … and NOT come back to us. She's never done that before. She is our Meowmy…she should be here with us. I know that cats can grieve. =^..^=

I came to know Shannon via Mr. Peabody's Facebook page. She is Meowmy. Meowmy created a virtual “family” for us, via Facebook. I NEVER imagined that I could feel so close to a person that I have Never met in person. But, when I read George's post …that she had passed away. I felt my heart sink. I thought…this must be a mistake? But, later confirm it was true. Mewmity !

Shannon engaged us with her funny and interesting stories about everyday stuff. She made the boring mundane tasks of everyday living …fun, interesting and most of all Entertaining ! She told us about her little shopping trips to Russo's to get fresh fruits and veggies, to Wal-Mart to get the filter for the aquarium, about some of the special neighbors, one in particular, the NDI…we love him, despite everything. She shared her love for Fishies and Chippies….Pea and Smarty loved it too. She must have loved salad, cause it seems like she was fixing her stupid salad stuff quite often.
Her favorite restaurant – Applebees. I sent her an Applebee's gift card for Christmas present…she was so thankful and appreciative. She shared her recipes, with photos of how to do the recipe.
Shannon had such a wonderful wittiness about her. An AWESOME sense of humor. More common sense that most people. She was friendly and outspoken…a “tell it like it is” kinda girl. Don't beat around the bush…just go for it … when talking or doing a task.

I really wish that I could have met her in person. I don't remember how I came across Pea's page…but, I do remember shortly after finding it….I started to look for the daily postings….to see what was happening in Pea's life that day. There was the daily “Good Morning from Mr. Peabody” and the “Good Night from Mr. Peabody” and then all the stuff in between. After my husband would get home from work…if he was in here with me…. I would say: “Curtis, hit the mute button….you gotta hear this !”
If Mr. Peabody ever had a “BIG FAT TAIL ! “… we all knew that something terrible had gone wrong or was someone was able to get a good straightening out by Meowmy. When it was bill paying time….Mr. Peabody said that he was about to learn some new words. Ha ha ha We learned about problems with the roof, the heating system, the trees outside, the pretty gold fishies in the outside pond, squirrelies, Jeremiah the frog, Isabella the deer. Meowmy loved to provide some corn for Isabella….and seeds for the birdies. Meowmy LOVED all animals…not just kitties. But, had it not been for the kitties….our paths would have never crossed. I would have missed out on so many fun, refreshing and pleasurable situations that were shared with Meowmy's Facebook Friends.

I feel like that is a big ole hole in my heart….a void, that can only be filled by Meowmy and her tales of everyday life. Everyday….I come to my desk, sit down….bring up Facebook … and I start to scroll, looking for postings from Mr. Peabody……they are NOT there. I miss the daily interaction with Shannon via Pea's page. I miss her so very much ! My heart feels like it is broken….I don't know how long it will take for it to mend. I tell myself: Just be thankful for the time that I had to interact with Shannon over the last few years.

Dawn, Michele, George and Jenny –
Sending my Deepest Sympathy and Heartfelt Love. I know that you must have so many good memories of your mom. I pray that God will give you a peace in your heart….in order to get through this rough time. Know that your mom's compelling and thought provoking posts reached so many people … all across the United States and even in some foreign countries. She was Loved by so many people…she will be missed something awful !

I know this is a very long message. But, these are the things that I wanted to say to Shannon's friends and family. Shannon left us on Tuesday, February 11, 2014. Very unexpected.
She made me Laugh….She made me Cry … but, most of all, She made me HAPPY ! =^..^=

Sincerely,
Terrie A. Gerringer

Shannon, it's been nearly two weeks since you were taken from us and yet I still look for your posts, stories from the neighborhood and the kitties. Although we never met face to face, we had numerous chats, usually too late at night and I felt I knew you well from your descriptive posts on Facebook. You are missed by so many. My sincere condolences go out to George & Jenny and to Dawn & Michele. Shannon was very proud of you all and it showed in her writings to those of us who did not know you. Be at peace.
February 21, 2014
So long to our Facebook furriend. I wonder if you realized how many people really enjoyed your daily posts. I wonder if NDI has even noticed your no longer home. God Speed Miss Shannon from your furriends @ Old Cats Rule! =^..^=
