Three years ago today our very special cat, Mau(ricio), received his angel wings after a short, undiagnosed illness. All his blood work was normal, and our veterinarian could not find anything really wrong with him. But he had lost weight and was not acting like himself. If you missed or would like to reread the original post about his passing, click on the title, “💖 Until We Meet Again 💖“.

I wanted a Spark about angels, which I totally believe in, as I have met one. I found several that “spoke” to me and plan to eventually share each of them. The one I selected for today is from Anton Chekhov.


Portrait of a tuxedo cat with the following quote from Anton Chekhov, "We shall find peace. We shall hear angels, we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds."


I believe those diamonds (stars) in the sky are our loved ones (humans and pets) who have passed. They are there watching over us always.

Mau was a wonderful cat who loved his fursibs, his wife Allie, Dad Tom and me. He was a comedian and cozy companion and remains in our hearts and thoughts. Dad Tom and I speak fondly of him often.

Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks, “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. 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.”

There’s no doubt that Mau was an awww-adorable cat. So this special angel will be taking part in Sandee’s Awww Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus. If you would like to participate, click on her badge below.
