I’m so sorry about Lily Olivia. I knew she was slowing down but didn’t know she was this close, but then they don’t often even let you know. It’s very difficult to lose during a holiday, but her spirit may have chosen this time of change to make this change for herself, knowing you would understand. Now you can remember the softer parts of Lily Olivia, and let the catitude fade just a bit. I hope Sawyer was a good listener. You know there is a part of her in every feline in your household. Our sympathies.

Darling furiends adnd Human friends too, We are very sad to learn that Miss Lily Olivia has gone On over the Bridge, where she will find her Beloved Sister Fiona, and countless other friends waiting for her. Still, there will be a gaping hole in the Blue Kitty and Human family for quite some time. We think all the Humans and kitties should pile together in a warm purry circle of comfort. We love you.

Dear Janet, Tom and Kitties…….we know your hearts are breaking having to say goodbye to Lily Olivia even knowing it was her time – it leaves a huge hole in our hearts that only time can fill. She was a gorgeous girl and she had a wonderfully long life full of complete love – what more can any of us ask than that? It makes me so happy that little Sawyer “knew” and kept her company in her last days……and it also makes me happy knowing of all the Angels who welcomed her when she arrived “home again” at the Bridge. Farewell beautiful lady….. you brought so much to those who love you and now it’s your turn to rest easy.

Hugs and love, Pam and Teddy

Our dear friend Miss Janet, Kitties of the Blue Family.

We opened our email to find your notification and came directly to your page. One day we admire Lady Olivia Blue’s selfie, the next she is flying with the angels. To be honest we can hardly write for tears.

We are not sorry, because that would mean regret and we do not regret a moment of Lily Olivia’s company. We grieve with you at the loss of a fine fellow blogging cat and hope to see you in Kansas City to give you a hug in person.

Yours,

Marjorie and the whole Dash Kitten Family
