In Memory of Sparkle

Image courtesy
All of us here on the Farm were very sad to learn that our friend Sparkle was not feeling well.
We were even sadder to learn that she left her life on this Earth.
We will all miss her.

When I first started my blog the publicist had me go out and visit other blogs so I could make some friends.
I am a very shy goat.
There are not many blogging goats so many of my first friends were kitties.
Even though I am not a cat these kitties welcomed me into their world.
Sparkle was one of those kitties.

She was always there to give advice and make me (and the publicist) smile.
Any time I had a special event on the blog Sparkle always was willing to do a guest post and help me even though my blog was a little blog and never as popular as her blog.

The publicist was very happy to meet Sparkle's human at BlogPaws.
She knows how hard it is to lose a beloved furry family member.
We all send hugs to Sparkle's human.
We also send them to Binga and Boodie who will be missing their fur-sister.

But with the sadness of Sparkle's passing there is some joy in to come in the household.
A new kitten is coming.
She will be introduced in the next week.
I won't spoil the surprise but tune into Sparkle's blog to learn all about her.

Despite the loss of such a cat as Sparkle the world must go on and we should celebrate all the good she did through her advocacy on her blog. If not for her there would be so many kitties without homes. Her wise advice will live on through her books.

Goodbye Sparkle.
We will miss you, but you will not be forgotten.
Thank you for being my friend.

  1. What a beautiful tribute. I LOVED the post that Sparkle did for your Catastic event.

  2. Oh so nicely put. Thank you. We too are happy about the positive arrival of young Summer.

  3. Such a beautiful tribute, Pricilla. You are a very eloquent goat. We share in your sadness, but also in your celebration of a life well lived. She's made the world a better place for so many cats.

  4. Pricilla, you maaa woods of wisdom. We all will feel the loss of such a great and wise feline. And we too share your sadness, and that of Sparkle's human, at this time of loss.

  6. It's funny, but everyone is saying how Sparkle was one of their very first blogging friends---mine too! It's sooo sad. :(

    I'm glad a new kitty will come into their home. I'm like that--I can't stand for a kitty to sit in a shelter when I have room. I have been known to give a new kitty a home within the week. It doesn't "replace" the kitty Iost, but I honor their memory by giving another kitty a home. Gotta make lemonade, you know?

  7. awww. so sorry for the loss of your sweet friend.

  8. That is such a wonderful that wonderful Sparkle. We remember her coming to visit the goats all the time. We sure will miss her.

  9. Very well said. Sparkle was truly special and embraced all of us, no matter our species. She will remain with each of us in our hearts. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  10. Beautiful tribute, Pricilla. RIP to a cat blogging pioneer, champion of those cats who have no voice and shining light who liked goats.

  11. Beautiful tribute to Sparkle. We'll miss her. Purrs

  12. A lovely tribute. Sparkle will be greatly missed by so many.
    I used to exchange comments with a blogging goat a few years ago called Gerald, but he hasn't blogged for a long time.


Maaaaaa away....
