PAPRIKA'S TRIBUTE TO FLYNN

We want to pay tribute to our friend, Flynn today.  He was Peaches & Paprika's first "orange virtual boyfriend" & one of the first blogger kitties who wrote us. For this and for the reason and the fact he was a wonderful boy, he will forever live in our hearts.

 Well I was thinking about the above and decided to make a graphic or two in his honor!

I made this one first, because we always see Flynn enjoying the out of doors and especially trees and grass
Then, I wanted to look at some other pictures through the months and years and I picked out some favorites and made a collage.

Needing a break I left the computer for a few minutes and when I returned THIS is what I found:  kitty Paprika sitting on my desk &  fixedly staring at Flynn on the screen.

(photos of Paprika NOT photoshopped! She stayed there 15 minutes...



I could not get Paprika to budge.  finally she turned around and stared at me with flattened ears!  I imagined her to say:



And eventually,


She turned around to face the computer again!





Perking Up Ears!


Finally she turned away from the computer
Peaches, though in another room, was looking dejected as well!





So we part company for now and wish our dear friend Flynn a true reunion with Eric and those of us on earth behind will hope for him the happy romps they could not take together  for a long long time. We send hugs to Jackie & her family. And we will hold her beloved furrball gently in our hearts and watch for cameo "Angel Flynn" appearances.

Love, Carol, Peaches & Paprika

Oh goodness are my eyes ever leaking, and not for the first time this week over precious Flynn. We hadn't known him for that long but he had stolen our hearts. This is definitely the most beautiful tribute to him I've seen.

Those photos made me cry! How wonderful it is to think that Paprika had that kind of deep communication with a furry friend we loved so well.

Oh my.....this is a darling post and so sweet - love the collage you put together of dear Flynn - he is a most handsome Angel now and I have no doubt there was some "communication" going on at the computer! Our Angels are ALWAYS there....ALWAYS.

Hugs, Teddy
