by Janet Blue on November 24, 2014

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 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.

Purrs and paw-pats from Nylablue’s brofur and sisfurs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo and hugs from her Aunti Janet

Nylablue touched so many lives, didn’t she? We are so sad that she had to go to Summerland, but we know that we will all see her again one glorious day. We are of course purring and praying for Miss Sherri-Ellen at this difficult time. And we send hugs to you, dear friends, as we know you are missing your honorary sister so.

We are very very sad about NylaBlue. She fought so hard as did her Mom. This was a beautiful tribute and I know it helps for her Mom to read these words. Each of us deals with loss in their own personal ways but I believe it’s universal that we never want our beloved being to be forgotten. It’s bad enough the world keeps going especially when in your heart it has stopped moving. Many many prayers for Sherri Ellen.

Sherri-Ellen and NylaBlue have been one of my favorite blogs to follow. I hope that eventually Sherri-Ellen will be able to adopt another kitten in honor of NylaBlue and tell us the story of the new kitten too … It takes time to overcome such a loss, but the company of cats is too precious to bypass. All my warmest feeling for you S-E in these hours of sadness. v.

We were not too furmiliar with Nylablue, but we can tell she sure was a most spawsial kitty. And now a beautiful angel kitty in her eternal Summerland.
We know how hard it is to say goodbye, and we send out lots of hugs and purrs to her furmily at this time.

Nylablue sounds like a really special kitty. We wish we had started following her sooner – we just found her blog a couple of weeks ago. It sounds like she was blessed to have such a big family of Sherri-Ellen AND you guys, and we know you all are blessed to have had her as an honorary sisfur. We have lit a candle for Nylablue and will be thinking of her mom during this difficult time.
Sampy sends extra comforting purrs and love to his Astrid, as he knows she must be sad about Nylablue. We are all sending love and hugs too.

So sad, but happy that at the end she had someone who loved and cared for her. Sometimes when I think about the way we can treat other species I am almost ashamed of being human…
