Dedicated to Sparkly

Our beautiful kitty Sparkly passed away yesterday.  She showed up on our lawn about thirteen years ago and never left.  She was a tough kitty, preferring to stay outdoors and pick fights rather than being pampered indoors.  She tolerated brief visits indoors but was always grateful when she was let out to enjoy the sunshine and grass.  Everyone thought she was a Scottish Fold because of her ears, but they were just deformed in fights.  She hated all other animals but loved her people friends and family.  Over the last several months, we could tell that she was aging rapidly and brought her permanently indoors.  She eventually adjusted to being cared for around the clock and was surrounded by her loving family and held in our arms as she took her last breath in our living room.  Her final resting place is in our beautiful garden area.


We loved you and will miss you, sweet Sparkly.

Love from your family.

  3. so sorry for your loss...your kitty was a cutie and she looked like our Waffle. our Waffle never went out but I day she escaped and we couldn't find her. the next morning she appeared at our back door with a large puncture wound on her belly. the veterinarian called to tell us that she had passed away through the night. Waffle was a loving calico cat. we miss her.
