Goodbye Meow the Cat

HealthMediaNM's OwnRIP

Pobre Meow. Last month El Gato Gordito made his way onto the world’s stage (well national television), and even on to the lap of America’s greatest talk show host, Anderson Cooper.

Now the famous tabby from Santa Fe, New Mexico is no more. After the whirl-wind press tour in which Meow’s plight to beat the bulge was made public, Meow was back home in NM, where he had been turned in to the Santa Fe Humane Society by his elderly owner whom could no longer care for him.

The Humane Society immediately set about with a regimen designed to save Meow’s life by aiming to cut down his morbidly obese weight, of 39 lbs. by at least 10.

Unfortunately, Meow lost his fight against the weight over the weekend. Santa Fe Animal Shelter executive director Mary Martin released the following announcement via facebook this morning:

Dear Friends,

I am devastated to share with you that the respiratory distress that Meow was experiencing last week (the reason we did not do his weigh-in) took his life at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 5. The Shelter staff – along with all those who met Meow during his short time with us – mourn his passing. As many of you are aware, Meow began wheezing last Thursday in his foster home, Dr. Jen began trying to sort out the problem, at first considering the possibility of asthma associated with his weight. She started treatment immediately to ease his breathing and, when Meow didn’t improve, she sought additional help for him from our emergency specialty hospital and an additional private veterinary hospital. Although four different veterinarians worked with Meow, we were unable to stop the progression of what turned out to be pulmonary failure. Meow had been doing so well in his foster home; walking up stairs and seeking affection – that it is so very hard to believe he is gone. We will forever be grateful for the attention Meow’s size brought to pet obesity and to animal shelters across the country. We are especially grateful to all of you who fell in love with this charming cat – as we did – and were so very interested in his progress and success.
With gratitude,
Mary Martin

Sweet, furry reminder of the toll weight takes on the body. And with all due respect proof that even the healing hands of Anderson Cooper cannot save a losing battle.

Adios Meow. Rest in peace and may your story save many lives, feline and otherwise.

New Mexico Film Mourns the passing of Frank Tapia

Posted by on March 27, 2012 | 9 comments

We are honored to have been asked to recognize the passing of a beloved member of the close-knit New Mexico Film family.

In this great industry of passion, pride and inspiration, brothers and sisters in film are sharing sad goodbyes and fond memories of a great spirit among them who has departed to the other side.

Today New Mexico and this world say, rest in peace to a true comrade and friend to all, Frank Tapia.

Frank Tapia passed peacefully and painlessly at 8:30 last night. He was surrounded by his family, union brothers and friends. Words cannot describe my appreciation for the huge response by this Local. Literally minutes after my email his union family started to show up and by 6:30 there was a line waiting to say goodbye, the dirt of Lone Ranger mixing with the sawdust from Breaking Bad. I know that Frank and his family appreciated it and I believe it let him go in peace. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all.

-Jon Hendry, New Mexico International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Business Agent

Sincerest condolences to those of you who know him, love him and will always carry his memory with you.

Please feel free to leave your respects and remembrances as comments here.

RIP Dame Elizabeth Taylor

Posted by on March 23, 2011 | Comments Off on RIP Dame Elizabeth Taylor

“My Mother was an extraordinary woman who lived life to the fullest, with great passion, humor, and love. Though her loss is devastating to those of us who held her so close and so dear, we will always be inspired by her enduring contribution to our world. Her remarkable body of work in film, her ongoing success as a businesswoman, and her brave and relentless advocacy in the fight against HIV/AIDS, all make us all incredibly proud of what she accomplished. We know, quite simply, that the world is a better place for Mom having lived in it. Her legacy will never fade, her spirit will always be with us, and her love will live forever in our hearts.” Son, Michael Wilding

O.J. Going to Jail un-Like it’s 1995

oj Pictures, Images and Photos
UPDATE 3: SENTENCED – At least 15 years in prison for O.J.
UPDATE 2: Judge says, “i’m not here to sentence [him] for things that have happened to him previously in his life.”
“Oren-jal, Oranthal James Simpson…” is finally to spend time behind bars a’ la Al Capone style “justice”.
Simpson is in a Las Vegas, NV courtroom right now for sentencing in his current trial for robbery…
UPDATE 1: Video here from CBS the accused killer speaks at his sentencing.
Here is the travesty that was the ’95 criminal trial verdict. Were you but a child then? I was at a corporate lunch-break a’ la Office Space – at the Applebee’s down the hill from our cubicle tenement, between TPS reports.

New tag line: Oran-j’all glad I’m finally going to jail?
