Meowmoirs: Time to Say Goodbye (February 12, 2021)

Now that Earnie is finally happy, having made friends with his humans, their baby, a kitten and even a dog, he has decided that... it's time for a break. He is content to get older, surrounded by love, and simply enjoy the good life... at least for a while. Who knows? Perhaps he'll make a comeback one day, or Mittens will start writing a diary of her own. 

Meowmoirs: getting nostalgic. 

Read Earnie's final diary entry where he looks back on his past, talks about his new friends (and possible successors to his throne) and fills every line he writes with love, love, some shenanigans, and more love.
