REMEMBERING FRIENDS.....


It was with MUCH MUCH sadness that I heard of the passing of a great pal of mine, and to all who follow the Dash Kitten Blog.


Dusty 



Sweet Dusty found hope and life and love with Marjorie and Paul, in New Zealand, when they opened their home and hearts to him. 


He found even in his senior years, his own new land of hope, and left behind any sadness and suffering.


He found a place to be, and love and belonging. 




And then later, when his time had come, in his sleep he made one last journey, over the bridge, to a land of fresh hopes and dreams without pain or suffering, to play as all cats should....  




This weeks post is dedicated to dear Dusty,  and also to sweet Snowball from 15andmeowingDylan of Wendy's 3-D Cats, and Shaggy from the Little Cat Feet blog, who have all made that journey to the bridge tis week......
















Pals who's lives lightened our day, as only felines can....





I extend the paw of friendship and love to Marjorie, Ellen, Wendy, Lynne, and their families, and send gentle purrs to them all....


                                             ~~~~~~ Donec iterum conveniant ~~~~~~

  7. Your tribute was lovely, and it brought a tear to my eyes. We've had so many losses in our little cat community lately, and I am always struck by how much compassion we show and share when those losses happen. Hugs.

  19. What a beautiful way to show your love and remembrance of special kitties! I love your selfie this week, Erin ... you certainly look like a Princess overlooking your domain :)
    ps - If your peep is like me, stress kills my creativity ... please give him some purrs ... and some time to get back to emotional equilibrium. It's a tough job taking care of a peep ... but if anycat is up to it, it's you, Princess Erin <3
