Marcus: Why? Did Jan lose more of her marbles? Oh, *gasp* she's not sick, is she? Who will feed us?
Micah: No, Jan's not sick and some of her marbles are still missing, but we're attending a memorial service today in Sparkle's honor.
Rusty: It was a shock to the blogosphere that she left us so unexpectedly. She is greatly missed.
Sam: Everyone knew Sparkle. She was a writer, an advice columnist, a model ... She was a little of everything.
Cameron: Whenever possible she helped to spread the word there was a cat in need of assistance. She had a big fan base so she could reach a lot of people.
Buddy: Yes, Sparkle's human is holding a commentathon memorial for her. A dollar will be donated to Tabby's Place in Sparkle's memory for every comment left on her blog today - up to $500. So, if you haven't already, please go by and leave a comment.
Marcus: *whispers* Oh, no, I'm sorry. I'll go by quietly and leave a dollar. Does anyone have a dollar to loan me?
Rusty: It's okay, Marcus, you don't have to whisper. And you don't need to donate a dollar. If we leave a comment, Sparkle's human will donate $1 of her own money to the cat sanctuary. But if you find a dollar and want to donate it directly to Tabby's Place in Sparkle's name, there will be a button in the post so you can.
Merci: We are also supporting Sparkle's memorial commentathon today as one of the co-hosts of the Pet Parade. We'll add a direct link when we get online Friday morning. Until then you can reach the memorial post through the home page. http://www.sparklecat.com/
The Pet Parade is hosted by Rascal and Rocco. And co-hosted by Bionic Basil, Barking from the Bayou, Love is being owned by a husky, and us (Jan's Funny Farm).
