Farewell Friday

Today is a very sad day on the Cat Blogosphere as an utter legend is no longer with us. Sparkle took her final journey to the vet last night. We all have tipped tails for the passing of this very, very special lady cat and send purrs to her Human. We've decided to continue with this post though as we know there are very many tears across the innerwebs today, and maybe this can bring some smiles amidst all the sadness.  Sparkle, we thank you for your blog and wisdom and your life. 

Seppo enjoys sitting in the doorway of Tessie's hut. She sleeps in it in the summer, and in the winter when she hibernates indoors, the hut is lined with reindeer hide and outside for us to rest in if we want. Seppo just likes it.
You can tell he thinks it is his place.
And he puts the bitey on intruders, including Mesi.
She is not impressed!
Tessie comes to check what is happening while Mesi thinks about an attack.
 The following are in the order they were taken - Mesi tried many times to take over the hut.

Finally she left - with a large Bottom of Disrespect pointed at Seppo,
and a mean shake of her head.

And here is a Friday special - a video of Mesi brawling again and again and again on the sofa with Seppo!

Looks like Stran had to finally step in!
Thanks you for sharing this and bringing a smile to our faces on this sad day.

Wow, reindeer hide inside? No wonder others want to take it over. Seppo, can't you share? Thank you for sharing Seppo today when many of our hearts are heavy. Purrs...

We are all in such shock over Sparkle's departure…

The best remedy is always young and feisty kitties enjoying life to the max!

Sparkle will be greatly missed by all.
Mesi was very determined to get in Tessie's hut, but Seppo was more determined to keep her out.
She is totally fearless, even with all of Seppo's bunny kicking.

We think spunky little Mesi can hold her own with all those cats! Of course, Mesi thought Seppo should share--what a great little house Tessie has :-)

So, "Mesi" in Finnish means RELENTLESS, no?
