Once upon a time there was a little kitty with a huge purrsonality. She lived with her Mum Sherrie-Ellen in their Purrfect Pad in Ontario, Canada. She had a blog and lots of friends and followers. Including us. But to Kitties Blue, Nylablue was so much more than a friend. We fell in love with this blue-eyed beauty the moment we met her. When our mom discovered that her mum had added “blue” to her original name of Nyla, we all agreed that she should become a member of our furmily. That’s when Nylablue became our honorary sisfur.
We first introduced her as our honorary sisfur on June 14, 2013. Click here to read that post. And we immediately added her photo and short bio on our “The Felines” page.
Nylablue was already ill, after being bred and rebred, when we met her. If you don’t know her story and how she was saved by Sherri-Ellen and came to live at their Purrfect Pad, you can read it here. But no matter how sick she was, Nylablue soldiered on. The love and devotion she and her mum shared and the care of her long-time vet, Dr. Dave, kept her in all our lives for much longer than predicted.
Though we are brokenhearted Nylablue is no longer physically with her mum or the rest of us, we know it was her time to leave. Now this little cat with the huge purrsonality is busy visiting with her predecessor, Mingflower, and her old furiends while making new ones in Summerland. She is free of pain, healthy and happy. And she has all the tuna-tuna she can eat without having to worry about her figure.
Sherri-Ellen never knew Nylablue’s exact birth date so chose her own to share with her. The bond they shared will never be broken nor will the one we shared with her. Angel Nylablue will be in our hearts forever and ever. And we know that she is watching over all of us.
Savannah and Sage’s mom, Linda, (Savannah’s Paw Tracks) has set up a group at Gratefulness.org where you can light a candle for Nylablue and Sherri-Ellen. Click here to go to the site. You can leave a message as well as light a candle.
Thank you for joining us today. And thank you to all those who have posted their own tributes and memorials to Nylablue. She was truly a special cat here on earth and is now a special angel in Summerland.
