Those we love
shine on
around us.


 Truly our Thankful Thursday posting:

A few short weeks ago on Facebook it came to the attention of Dorian Wagner that there was a woman named Joan who is terminally ill living in Hospice looking to make sure her cat was taken care of after her death. Dorian of the Cute Transport Network who is in Florida jumped into action. She did take the cat named Isis in and almost immediately found her a new forever home in Chicago. But she did more. Dorian asked her FB friends if they would like to send Christmas cards to Joan, she made arrangements to bring Isis to see Joan (more than once), she sent Joan some flowers and some personal items all of which was donated by those who helped Dorian in her Cute Transport and Santa Paws donations. It's just a feel good moment straight out of "It's A Wonderful Life". To be able to help someone who truly needs is a beautiful blessing. Isis will soon be making her plane ride to Chicago and Joan is very happy that Isis is going to great home, and all of us understand what that peace of mind must be like for Joan. God speed Joan, God speed Isis.

We're joining PepiSmartDog for this week's blog hop for Thankful Thursday. We hope you will too!

We also want to share our heartfelt sorrow our the loss of one of the long time bloggers who doesn't blog much now.
Beau Beau and Angie have blogged for nearly as long as Abby.
Beau Beau was always such a sweet darling boy with the most adorable face and eyes and personality.
Just last week, he began having some difficulties breathing. He was rushed to the Vet and fluid was taken from his lungs. He had a difficult weekend and yesterday he had a Vet visit with a cardiologist to do an echocardiogram. They found two inoperable tumors and made the decision to let Beau Beau become an Angel. Any loss of the heart is painful, but when it comes so suddenly and seemingly expectantly, it feels doubly hard. There is never a "good" time for this to happen, but for it to be at this time of the year with all the festivities I know how much more difficult and sad it will be. Thinking of Beau Beau and his sister Angie and their Mom and Dad who loved him so deeply. We all did. Now Beau Beau you can visit all of your Angel friends and I know you'll be free and happy and healthy. We'll all miss you for now.
Please stop by and give them your deepest purrs and prayers.
Beau Beau.

love knows not it's own depth
the hour of separation

We have made a candle at HERE for Beau Beau for any who would wish to light one.


  1. Such a wonderful gesture of love!

  2. Joan and Isis' story is nothing less than miraculous! We have been following it too.

    1. Summer, please tell your mom that I am so sorry I haven't responded more to her PM, but I will! <3

  3. Our Mommy has been so very moved by this ongoing story. Much love to all these lovely ladies, Joan, and Isis.

  4. Beautiful Boo :)
    We like that story,
    It shows that there are good [people in this world :)

  5. What wonderful people, all of them. God speed to Joan and to Isis for their different journeys.

  6. The Joan and Isis story is something that has really warmed our hearts this year. <3

  7. Iffen you will tell us Joan's adress, we will send one of our cat cards to her too.

    1. I'm sorry if this comment posts tried before and I don't think it worked. :(

      We are asking everyone to send cards to my address, and then we're bringing them all over to her! I don't want to put her home's address on the interwebs, but I'm OK with mine.

  8. that is a beautiful story… I am crying

  9. That is so beautiful and very sad too. What a blessing that Isis has a new and loving forever home. Dorian is a wonderful person to do this.

    I love this candle lit picture of Boo! What a perfect Christmas portrait with the red and green!

  10. Oh poor Beau Beau, that is so sad :( My thoughts are with the family. x
    That is wonderful what they did for that woman and kitty. Thank you for sharing.

  11. That's wonderful about Joan and Isis, though not surprising. There are caring people everywhere. The Cat Blogosphere helped to save Gentleman Beau when his mum Cathy died, and then The Royals when their mum passed away. Working together achieves miracles.

    I wish Beau Beau could have had his miracle, too. Godspeed, Beau Beau.

  12. The story of Joan and Isis is pretty unforgettable. We mourn for Beau Beau as well :(

  13. Joan's story was lovely. And we are terribly sad about Beau Beau.

  14. What a pretty picture of Angel you remember as children when we held dandelions under our chins...we used to say if our chin was yellow we like butter. Which was very true about me. Angel Abby's chin is all a glow.
    We are so sorry to read about beautiful Beau Beau
    Hugs cecilia and madi

  15. That is only one of the reasons why we love Dorian so much.

  16. Thank you for sharing! It is always important to remember how lucky we are for good health and happiness, and to be Thankful! *wags* - Gilligan from

  18. How kind of someone to help find Isis a home, what a bittersweet ending. I lit a candle, that is a great idea.

  19. Thank you so much for the beautiful stories of light of Dorian for Joan and Isis and for sharing about my beautiful boy Beau Beau. That's the picture I was looking for to put on our blog so you must have been reading our hearts :-). We so appreciate the light and love.

  20. Such a heart warming story about Joan.
    Your tribute to Beau Beau is beautiful. I have lit a candle for him.
    That is a beautiful photo of Abby with the candle glow shining on her.

  21. Aw, thank you so much for sharing Isis and Joan's story! <3 There is no way any of this could happen without such a huge, wonderful group of people to help and support. Everyone has been amazing and kind. I am so glad we can all work together to help them!

    And I am so sorry about Beau Beau. I wish they could all live forever.

  22. We've been following Joan and Isis's story on FB. And the mom sent Joan a Christmas card. What a wonderful story!

    We are so sad to hear the news about Beau Beau. We always enjoyed visiting him and Angie. He will be missed.

  23. Oh Gorgeous Abby you are misses. Isis and Joan's story is so sad yet wonderful! Visited Beau Beau's blog and left our condolences. Luv you guys!
