Hello, honey, Elvira Mistress of Felinity here. I'm more than just a great looking feline, I'll have you know! Bold, fresh, cuter than a speckled pup, and the most delightful pussycat in the world! You can call me Miss Elvira for short; just don't call me late for dinner, treats, a nap, or a snooze!
Welcome to an Elvira Factor Special.
You are about to enter the no bull zone! Grab your tails, felinity assembled; it's going to be a bumpy ride!
At age 12, Sparkle the Designer Cat cashed in her 9th and last life.
She did it her way, but that didn't lessen the pain and loss for her friends and a world-wide following.
The premier advice columnist to felinity assembled is no more...
Daddy Kiril spoke for Sneakers and I when he left the following comment...
"I am just too stunned now to say much more than that the cats and I love you dearly, sweet kitty, and have been honored by your support and friendship all these years."
The last editions of Elvira Factor were in Feb. & March and Sparkle was there to cheer me on...
Let me say, here and now...girl friend, this Sassy Lady will be resuming the series and I hope to make you proud.
Now for the Meowing Points Memo:
"If u has faith as tiny as kibble, u can say 2 dis mountain, moov!, an it will moov. Nothin will be imposible 4 u!" - Matthew 17:21 (LOL Cats Bible Translation)
"Wow, you've been blogging even longer than me, and I started in January, 2003!"
Sparkle The Designer Cat's first comment, on this blog, addressed to Nikita - 4/19/2010
"Everything good starts with a leap of faith.
We kitties already know that, but a lot of times humans don't."
Sparkle, in a comment to Nikita, on Opinionated Pussycat, in Feb. 2011
Yes, Nikita had not just been blogging longer than Sparkle and her human, having had an online voice, beside daddy, since he was a kitten in 1998, but Sparkle and her human had the foresight and skill to not just be one of the earliest, fulltime pet blogging teams, but to parlay that "leap of faith" into something special including 2 published books.
The mountains she moved were stupendous. The pearls of advice and news she shared, the products she tested are too numerous to count and the members of the pet blogging community she influenced, in her award winning career, is a long Who's Who of the obscure and well-known, with new voices tossing their paws into the ring, because of her, every year.
The influence of this Lionness (and Super Model Supreme!) is incalculable.
And that's the Memo!
Next up is...My Word!
