Yesterday, as most of the blogosphere knows, we lost Sparkle Cat. And everyone has great memories of her. I do too. I’m going to miss her but not as much as her family will.
It reminds me how much we appreciate each and every one of our friends. All of you are special in some way. The woman always wanted a hundred cats as a child and you have all allowed her to exceed that dream. And I don’t even have to live with all 100 (plus) of you. Unfortunately, it means we also lose friends as well and that’s hard.
Sparkle was a dear friend and as each one leaves it takes a piece of our heart. Maybe that’s why the Woman finds it harder and harder to blog. She likes the community but it’s so hard to lose the ones we love.
If you want to read many more tributes to Sparkle, Katie and Waffles have a link up for all those who are paying her tribute today.
So today, as I remember Sparkle. I will be spending time with some friends. And as it’s Friday, I’ll feature anyone who knows where I am and who I’m spending the day with on Sunday.

Sparkle will really be missed. It’s so sad when we lose one of our furriends, but just imagine: if we stopped blogging when we lost one, we’d never meet new furriends.
We think you’re at the Katnip Lounge.
Yes we think you are right. Who is with me?

You are right when you say we all have large families because of the blogging community.
We also feel the great loss when we lose one of our “family” too.
We will miss Sparkle very much.

That was a wonderful tribute to dear Sparkle, she touched so many lives. Happy lounging!
Kitties Blue says
We are reading every single tribute left for Sparkle. She was special and so well loved. Blogging has brought us so many wonderful furiends, but the flip side of that is having to accept that we will lose these furiends. It is so very difficult, but we wouldn’t give up the knowing because of the losing. Each of these furiends remain in our hearts forever.

A lovely tribute. Sparkle will be greatly missed by so many.

Katnip Lounge says
Chey! The Poopster has a *tiny crush* on you…
We are heartbroken over Sparkle. Mommy cried herself to sleep last night.
The Island Cats says
The world is a little less bright now that Sparkle has left it. We will miss her very much.
My mom feels the same way. It’s harder for her to help me blog when so many of our long time furriends have left us. We love all of our furriends as much as if they lived with us.
