I believe in angels. In fact, I have met one.
I’ve been thinking of angels recently after finding out that a sweet kitty friend, Caster, had gotten his wings. That is what prompted today’s Spark, which is displayed on one of Dad Tom’s photos.
The author of today’s Spark, Martha Nibley Beck, is a 56-year-old best-selling author of several books, a life coach, and speaker. She holds three degrees, a BA, MA and PhD, from Harvard University. Beck specializes in helping individuals and groups achieve greater levels of personal and professional success.
Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie has been taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Unfortunately, during this break, Annie has been the victim of a hacker. This has continued to keep her off-line and caused her much distress. Please continue to send prayers to Annie and her family as they work to get their lives back to normal.
Many of us believe in Annie’s vision: “If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!”
When we found out that Caster had gotten his wings and flown away to the Rainbow Bridge, it hurt our hearts so much. We consider Caster family. After all, Astrid is married to his fursib, Sampson. And his human mom, Emily, is a dear and precious friend. In fact, I think of her as a daughter.
We always try to honor and remember our friends who pass away, so we could not overlook Caster.
Caster was rescued by his mom from the woods as a stray. He eventually became the third member of the Adventure Team at Kitty Cat Chronicles. Unfortunately he had to give up traveling when he contracted an unidentifiable illness last fall. This badly effected his eyesight and general health. He had been slowly getting better until suddenly he fell quite ill and his mom and dad made the decision to help him travel to the RB.
It is always sad to lose one of our furfamily members, but it is especially hard (as we know) when they are young. Sweet Caster was only six years old.
If you haven’t left your condolences for mom, Emily, and dad, Bobby, please go to the post, Grieving the Loss of Caster at Kitty Cat Chronicles. There you can read Emily’s memories of Caster and see a variety of amazing photos of this adorable boy.
We think Angel Caster is totally awww-worthy, so we are joining the Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. By doing so, we also hope more bloggers will find out about the loss of this much loved cat. To join the hop, click on the badge below.
