Beautiful Blue Baby

We put Blue to rest on April 8, 2009. 

My heart aches in ways I never knew it could.


Blue fought a battle she would never win when lymphoma decided to invade her body; but nonetheless, she still fought. That's my girl.

In the end, her body could no longer afford to keep up the fight. She was in so much pain and rapidly took a turn for the worst.

The wound of her departure is too fresh and raw for me to handle. I cannot come to terms with the fact that I will never hear her demanding meow, never see her looks of disdain thrown my way and never see her purring contently on Ryan's lap. It was difficult to wake up this morning and realize the finality that she is not here.

Although my heart is in pain, the pain will never overshadow the memories we have. The seven years we had together dominate the horrible, tragic day that ended Blue's presence. Blue may be gone, but I know her legend lives in my heart. And I know it lives in the hearts of all of you. Your thoughts, prayers and concern will help guide her over to a place where she is in pain no more. My evil girl is up there plotting something for us. I just know it.

Rest in peace my sweet angel.

 We love you.

 You'll be in our hearts until we meet again.


  1. What a wonderful set of pictures and what a tribute! Blue would give her approval, I'm sure. Rest in Peace sweet Blue Kitty. (roiegreenie)

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. She will indeed live on in everyone's memories.

  3. I am so sorry that Blue had to go to the Rainbow Bridge. It is clear from your words what a very special kitty she was. Soft purrs to you during this sad time.

  4. Rest in peace, Blue. You will be missed.

  5. Mary, I am so terribly, terribly sorry about Blue. You and she fought until the end, but what you faced was just too strong this time. She was lucky to have the two of you in her life and you were so fortunate to have her.

    I know it's probably way too soon but if you ever decide to adopt another kitty, I would be honored to give you one of ours. I'd be happy to bring you an entire litter so you could chose a new baby.

    Meanwhile, we find ourselves surrounded by blue kittens in the rescue, more than at any time in memory, and they are all just a tiny bit evil. I take that as a sign that Blue is has not given up trying to make trouble on this plane. I would still sleep with one eye open if I were you.

    RIP little Blue cat. You are loved and already missed.

  7. We are so sorry for your loss.

  13. Oh Mary....my heart is breaking for you right now, and I'm typing this through tears. It's just not fair, and it makes me mad. I'm so sorry about all this. I don't know what I would do if I had to say goodbye to Moose...and I almost did, and I know how bad that was, I can't even imagine what you must be going through.

    I love you and miss you, and know that I will be thinking of you and the family while you trod through this grieving process.
