An Open Letter to Sparkle

Photo ©sparklecat.com

This little ghetto kitteh is at a loss for words. The world and blogosphere lost a very special furrend. Ironically, it was one year ago today we lost Homer Blind WonderCat.

Dear Sparkle, thank you for being a part of my life and sharing your wisdom. Thank you for working toward a no-kill nation. Thank you for all your work with feral kittehs; for speaking for those who have no voice. Thank you for helping to get countless kittehs adopted into good homes. Thank you for your support of this blog and blogs all across the blogosphere. Thank you for your friendship and wisdom. Thank you for letting me into your house and life virtually. Thank you for keeping it real and being you. You’ll live on in our hearts furever. You’re the sisfur I never had. Godspeed. Love forever, Cathy Keisha
