Goodbye to Sparkle Cat

Actually, it looks pretty good on me!
Our hearts are so, so sore and the tears have fallen hard and fast when we read of the loss of the amazing Sparkle. We can only guess how heartbroken her beloved human Janiss is and the difficult time this is for all. Her dignified post is a tribute to her and the magnificent Sparkle.
Sparkle and her human took us to their hearts and we have loved reading their posts for fun, for wisdom and companionship. I had never seen a Somali cat and Sparkle is clearly imprinted on my brain as the standard setter for this gorgeous and dignified breed. That Sparkle's human could be thinking of Magic's illness while Sparkle herself was so desperately ill really touches us.
We so hope Sparkle's human doesn't mind us appropriating one of our favourite pictures of her to say goodbye. It is not only Sparkle's blog that is dark this weekend it is many of our hearts at losing such a bright star. May Sparkle's spirit continue to twinkle wherever she is and may she reflect that light on Janiss and little Summer who has some huge paw prints to follow.


  1. Sparkle will be greatly missed by so many.

  2. We are sure Sparkle's spirit will live on in Summer.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
