Sparkle will sail on in my heart.

Furiends it’s with a heavy heart that I write today to tell you that one of the most beautiful stars of the cat-blog world is coming to the end of her journey. My dear furiend Sparkle, a positive light until the very end, yesterday said thank you to her furiends. She asked for us not to be sad but to welcome the new companion she has chosen for her human, Summer, who will continue in her paw prints with the blog.

Although (as is so often the case with Internet furiends) I’ve never physically met Sparkle I am truly blessed to have had such a loyal and special furiend. I was honoured when (an award winning pawthor herself) she agreed to review my book and we were virtually pretty close when she put her paw next to me!

When the sun hits the water and makes millions of pretty sparkles, I will think of you my furiend. It is now my turn to thank you for all the wonderful smiles you gave me and my humans. You will furever sail on in my heart.

Bisous, Bailey

  1. Superb tribute. Our hearts are broken. Love when you said “When the sun hits the water and makes millions of pretty sparkles, I will think of you my furiend.” Just beautiful. Sparkle was one of the first blogging friends we met back in 2009 when we began our blog. Sparkle was an icon and will always remain so. She will be deeply missed. Her human is incredible, we have had the pleasure of meeting her several times and are crazy about her. Our tribute is up on our blog as well. Hope you will visit. Love, Caren and Cody

  11. My condolences. My human and I lost two feline friends won that spent 21 years with the family. Writing a blog post for Mr. B and Missy was so difficult —– I know the emotion.
