Two weeks ago, when Sparkle said good-bye, I don’t think she realized how deeply her leaving would affect so many. At home, she was just a little cat who needed a big attitude to deal with Binga, but on the internet, she was so much more. She was wise and web-savvy and other cats looked up to her. She would have been bowled over by all the tributes and love that poured in after she died.
When my human decided on a figure to go with the commenthon that went with Sparkle’s memorial post, she knew she was stretching it by going for 500 comments, but you know what? With your help, the post came so close that she is going to donate the full $500 today to Tabby’s Place. But do you know what was even more amazing to her? This:
Each of these cards is someone who donated to Tabby’s Place in Sparkle’s memory. Wow! Several of them had their own commenthons on their own blogs. And a few others donated to a rescue local to them. Thank you so much for remembering Sparkle by spreading your love to help cats in need. Helping other cats was so important to Sparkle, and it is going to be one of my life’s missions too.
Many of you also sent sympathy cards to my human, Binga and Boodie. Here are many of them. Others sent emails or left messages on Facebook. Each one meant so much to my human and she is just now starting to feel up to replying. It’s been a hard couple of weeks. If you want to know how she felt about all this, you can read her post this week on CatChannel.com.
But before this post gets too goopy, I do want to let you know that I’ve been learning the fine art of photo bombing:
Again, and always, thank you.
