A Sparkling Summer Solstice Tribue to Scottie, Sparkling Cat


Saturday at approximately 2:30 A.M., our eldest cat, Scottie, passed from his Fur Suit to his Sparkle Suit, as we like to call it.  It was easy; we were with him; we were at home.

It was his time.  We will miss that Fur Suit, that particular incarnation of that precious soul, but we know all is as it is meant to be.

Today, then, we celebrate this Summer Solstice not with sadness but with an optimism that is born of acceptance.  We accept the fact of his love and know that comes with loss.

But not really.  The only true loss would be not having known or loved these beings that bless our paths.

Opening our hearts to the momentary feeling of loss, we open our hearts to an infinite amount of love.

It's the Winter Solstice here (um, duh me) which is a truly fitting time to mark the passing of a little furry light.

I hope Scottie shines bright in your memory, always!

Beautifully said, and what a wonderful tribute to your lovely Scottie, now sparkling away with his fellow 'first round cat' alumni. :)

Sending you hugs, peace and love at this delicate time of openness. xo

My thoughts are with you and Scottie's entire family, both in the fur and the skin suits.

I love the way you describe his 'fur suit'. Yes- this is our suit for now! This post is perfection.

What a beautiful tribute. May his sparkle suit light your paths as much as his fur suit blessed you.

Loving hugs to all at the Lilypad in this time of sadness and love. And blessed thoughts to Scottie and all the joy he shared with you and his four-footed friends in his fur suit. As others have said, Sparkle On, Scottie! As with all our furry pals, you made the world a better place.
