A Retirement Party

The day has come that I have mixed feeling about, the time to say good bye but not wanting to. I am stepping down from my position at Little Productions, see yesterday's post. I have been blogging for two years and I treasure each and everyone of you that I got to know while on this journey. I have made many friends and have some friends that are like family, the family friends are the heart of the CCSI series. So it is only fitting that a small gathering was held in the executive boardroom for one last time together. Won't you please join us in my farewell.

Here we all are at the festivities, bottoms up toasting to my retirement. Oh what fun memories that we all share from our many adventures. What one of us couldn't think up to do the other one could.

After the party we all gathered outside the studio lot where my moving van was packed and waiting. I took this time to present Opus with the key to the studio lot. He will now be Executive Producer and I assured Asta, Karl, Ruis, Momo, & Olive that they would all be in good paws. Gracie looked on as we said our good byes, no I take that back we said until we meet again. We will meet again someday, I know for sure, as I will meet all of you again wether it be here in the blogging world or at the bridge. We will once again all play and have adventures.

When I left Opus, having the weight and future of the CCSI shows on him, took a walk through the studios and reflected on some of the fun things that we had shared. On the sound stage he felt his brother, Roscoe, presence and feeling the closeness of his brother knew that this was a task he would not take lightly but would take it on. He would continue to oversee the production and make sure that the highest of standards would always be part of each production. The future shows will be seen at:

I would like to present to you at this time the first look at the 2009-2010 season of the executives of Little Production, producers of the award winning CCSI: Cat/Canine Crime Scent Investigators.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for two years of your friendships. My final post will be on Monday.

ps: I just found out recently, like now, that the gang is taking me to Paris for my retirement celebration. I had told them I wanted to keep things simple but if I had thought about it I should have remembered that none of us know what that word means. Head over to the CCSI blog, the link is above, over the next five days to see what we will be up to. Oh, my final post will not be on Monday.

Thanks you guys love you bunches and bunches

ZOOLATRY said...

We think Sassy is off on one more, and perhaps her greatest adventure.
She will be missed by all ~ as will your many talents and creativity shared over past years with all of us.

Yet, new things are on the horizon. So... all is not lost, all is not sad.

A time for farewells, but also a time for welcoming the new.

Sassy, we hate to see you go...we loved the CCSI and all your adventures. We'll miss you.

Sassy, you and Roscoe will always be with us, since we will never forget either of you! We have enjoyed your adventures and the CCSI capers.

We love the surprise!

The Creek Cats said...

We will miss you dearly. We have very much enjoyed you in the CCSI adventures. We wish you well, Sassy.

I will never forget the day you told Roscoe and I about this crazy idea to have a show involving all the animals of the Cat Blogosphere. You came up with idea to have a show and asked the animals of the blog world to send in their ideas for the show. I remember saying that it wouldn't work because not enough cats and dogs would want to get involved. Boy was I wrong!
Roscoe had the idea to have a crime show and he came up with the idea for CCSI. We were so surprised when our show idea won at the voting poles and CCSI was born.
Roscoe and I wrote that first show together while you, Sassy, directed it and helped us film. Haven't we grown since that firs show done at home with the just three of us to our own studio and a wonderful executive staff. Those staff members, Ruis, Karl, Momo, Roscoe and Karl, are the dearest friend a cat could ever ask for.
It will be sad to say good bye to you and so won't. I will simply say, until we meet again old friend. I love you and I always will.....

Dear Miss Sassy,
It makes me so sad all of this. Our human has tried hard to not have tears, but it is no use. It is never easy saying good bye. I am sorry that I didn't get to know you very well. I have only been around since spring, but this summer was a slow one for blogging in our home. I did have a wonderful time with you at Opus's birthday party and wish there would have time for more. But before we say good bye, let us have one last adventure (see the CCSI blog).

And if by chance you have gone to the rainbow, I know that Roscoe will be there waiting to take good care of you. If you are not there, please stop by MOTH's once in a while, just to let us know you are safe.

Much love,

Beau said...

This is soooo furry sad. I will miss you dearly, my friend. =sniff=

Daisy said...

I will never forget all of the wonderful times we had together, Sassy. You will always be in my heart.

There are times when a cat feels compelled to strike off and retire from one place to find a new one. Our own Tinkerbelle decided to do that almost exactly 10 years ago. We KNOW she simply found a new place that suited her better. Or sometimes the Wanderlust just hits...

In the words of JRR Tolkien:

"The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say."

Enjoy your new places in retirement Sassy, and perhaps we will hear from you after your adventures...

Dearest sweet Sassy, I wish I would have gotten to know you better. My sisters and I will remember you forever. Thanks for bringing such joy to the Cat Blogosphere!

Mr. Hendrix said...

you're probably off mooching like your mommy said, maybe with a handsome Mancat by your side.

you will leave a big Sassy shaped hole on the blogosphere and on the CCSI adventures. purrrrrrrrs

Farewell Sassy, from another SassyCat.

TwoSpecialWires said...

Well. We are late arriving. But we are here. And we want to say that we don't say "goodbye" in our family, either. It's always "We love you" and/or "See you later" and/or "Until next time." So we understand. We'll see you, sometime, Sassy. And we'll be happy to meet ou when we do. In a short amount of time, we've learned how very special you have been (and are, to whomever you are now with) to the world of furries and fuzzies and the people who care about them.

Jake and Fergi xxoo
