A Tribute to Sweet @Sydpie


Hi Pals,

Twitterland has had to say temporary goodbye to another dear friend - @Sydpie - who entered heaven on Friday, May 6th.   Her sudden passing left many of us in shock, as I know it did her family.   I'm still trying to wake up from the bad dream.   M says we have to be thankful that she didn't have to suffer for very long, and I am thankful for that.

Some pals who have not been on Twitter that long have asked me why some of the boys are wearing pink ribbons.   It's in honor of sweet Sydpie.   Sydpie actually started on Twitter without a pink bow.  he he - I kept calling her a "he" for months, and each time she would nicely correct me.  A few other pals had problems with the he/she thing too, so one day Sydpie started wearing a pink ribbon so we could plainly see she was a SHE!  I never had a problem with calling her a she after that.  So we boys proudly wear our pink bows in honor of Sweet Sydpie.

The day Sydpie entered heaven, her mom made the comment to some of us that she knew an angel had come down to help Syd make the journey to heaven.  I had M do a photoshop so I could see what it might be like.

Our thoughts, prayers and sympathy go out to Sydpie's family and her dear sweet kitty sibling, @Cheddums, who keeps "looking at their mom, wondering why she doesn't let Sydpie back in the house."  We had leaky eyes when Sydpie's mom told us dat.   So sad!

Beautiful post, Mario - didn't know that's the reason behind SydPie's bow! That's a lovely picture of Syd with the angel - hope it helps to comfort her Mom. Prayers and lots of purrs for SydPie and her family, and the friends who love and miss her.
