7 yearz ago……Tribute to Mingflower frum Nylablue

Published March 24, 2013 by Nylabluesmum

Mingflower 1987-2006EEooww Eberyone: Nylablue here!! Az me Mum iz down wif da Flu n sore sinusez me figured me do sumfing nice fer her!!!!

Yesterday, March 23rd waz da 7th Annie versary of Mingflower ‘da Merciless’ passin n goin to da Rainbow Bridge!! Me callz her ‘Aunti’ cause she waz 18 1/2 yearz old when she left fer da Bridge. She took such guud care of me Mum all doze yearz!! (Mum rescued her when she waz only 5 monthz old.)  In fact me Mum sayz she spoke to Mingflower a month after she waz gone n asked Mingy to guide Mum to her next 4 legged….den me waz rescued!!!! Did Mingflower really guide her frum beyond?? Me not shure but me really don’t care cause me got to be wif diz Hu’Mum n Life haz bin bunderfull since we met!!! Eben wif all da health prublemz me Mum haz bin dere fer me alwayz!!!  Oh wait diz iz about Mingflower!! She waz a Bluepoint Siamese n she cuud not see well; only bout 60 purr cent witch got less az she got old. She lubbed to travel  wif Mum n waz what Mum called ‘bomb proof’!! She waz kind of funny az in peecuular in dat she waz afraid of eberyone n she had to hab same routine ALL day time….mum said Mingflower waz Autistic!!! MOL!!!

Mingflower got sick wif Kidney Disease Catmass 2004 while Mum waz at Aunti Stacey’z fer da holiday!!! Mum waz so upset dat she waz not dere when Mingy ferst got sick!!! She promised her she wuud NOT go away fer da rest of Mingflower’z life n she kept dat promise. Mingy lived til March 23rd of 2006 n Mum stuck wif her & neber went to da family n dey were mad az KATZ on a HOT Tin Roof she told me, but Mum cuuud not brake her promise to her “Baby Suck’. Dat  fatefull mornin Mingy awoke Mum wif what Mum called da ‘death howl’ n she called da Vet n asked fer him to come to da house n help Mingy to da Bridge!!! Den Mum called Dad Jon & he came over n spent da rest of da day wif dem both!!! Dr. Dave waz heartbroken to have to help Mingy who he called  hiz “Grand Old Girl”. He really LUBBED her eben tho he waz not post-to be attached to any of da 4 leggedz he took care of in da pracktiss. Mum played Native drummin music dat Mingy lubbed n she waz helped to da Bridge az she waz in full Renal Failure. Eberyone sat on da bed huggin n cryin n Mum was singin to Mingy….it must have bin heart wrenchin fer ALL of da Hu’Manz. Dr. Dave cuud NOT carry Mingflower wrapped in her yellow blankie out n made da Assistant do it n she quit da next day cause she waz not cut out to werk in a Vet pracktiss!!!!! Mum told me dat Mingflower waz da first KAT she had all thru itz life n she felt like she lost a child rather den a pet!! Makez sense to me!!! So me wantz to deddycate diz blog to Mingflower da best Kitteh EVER who taught me Mum so much n fer bringing us together!!!! You are neber fergotten n me rubz yer box wif yer ashez ebery day so you nose you not alone ever…  Lub yer Niece Nylablue &Mmum Sherri-Ellen xo

  • Nylablue that was such a special memorial you did for Ming and I am sure you Mum so appreciates what you did. We have the ashes of the three kitties before me with us too. Mom and Dad did not want to bury them at the house before here and this house isn’t outs so we won’t leave them here either.

          • You have a wonderful mom and you are a lucky kitty :o) We try to help the poor animals too and I feel sorry for all animals who were dumped by bad people. I wish we could have a world without puppymills, petstores and killing shelters. That would be great!

  • Miss Nylablue, thank you for the wonderful tribute to your Aunty. I had to smile a liittle — I was reading too fast and at first I read “she was 60 percent witch”! And then I loved your story of Miss Mingflower’s passing. Mom gave her a warrior’s send-off.

  • Such a wonderful post and tribute. We always think and talk about – and talk to – our kitty Giaccolo that passed away a year ago. I was just thinking last night I can’t believe he is gone. Not to mention our dogs that have passed. It’s something you’ll never get over so to be able to keep them present in any way is helpful!

    Piggy kisses,
    Katie and Coccolino the mini pig

    • Fankz me werked hard on diz fer Mum (az she iz sick). Giaccolo soundz like he waz pretty speshell also!!! We DO leave pawprintz on our Hu’Manz heartz!!! Mum sayz she felt dat way about Mingy fer 2-3 yearz n den dat feelin passed n she waz ok….me finkz it waz ME dat helped drag pull her thru da loss!!!
      Mum n me talk meow alot about Mingflower so she livez wif us in spirit.
      Lub to Coccolina n you Miss Katie frum Nylablue n Mum

  • Bittersweet story about Mingflower but she sure had a very long life with you Mum didn’t she. I imagine it’s very hard for our beloved humans to have to help us go to the Bridge when our time has come but it sounds like your Mum did all she could to make sure Mingflower’s last moments were full of love.

    Kitty Hugs, Sam

    • Yow Sammy…yer Mum n me did a blog about past kittehz on da same day 😉
      Maybee dere waz sumfing in da air???
      Me finkz yer Mum lubz you so bery much she wuud do anyfing to keep you wif her!!!!
      We haz guud Mumz; in fact, da BEST Mumz!!!!
      Me Mum wanted Mingflower to go to da Bridge eazily….dere waz an inseedent tho’. Dat Vet went to shave Mingy’z front leg to give her da injeckshun n da sound of da shaver scared her so much she bit Mum’z right thumb!!!!!!! Mum sayz she waz so shocked she just kept sayon, “Mingflower you bit me..” over n over!! Da Vet had to take Mingy into livin room to hand shave her leg n den he brought her back n gave her da injeckshun n Mum sang to her az she slipped away!!! Mum waz bery brave 😉
      By da way, Mum went to Doctor 2 dayz later & got Aunti-biot-ickz cause her thumb waz infected….so Mingy left a bit of herself behind, MOL!!!!!!
      Lub Nylablue xo

    • Eeeoww Kirby n Leah: Mingflower waz beeutifull me Mum told me!! She told me many Hu’Manz said she was ber plain?? What?? Mingy waz a beeuuty!! Sum peeple are blind er don’t see the true nature of us kittehz!!! Mum iz pretty speshell too xo

  • Awww Nylablue what a beautiful tribute! Mingflower sounds adorable and your mums bond with her was just as special as yours is. I hope she gets better soon. The flu really knocks the humans over doesn’t it? My mum had it for the first time ever for her birthday last week. I was worried she was dying! She was sooo hot and she kept saying she was cold and she wouldn’t eat anything I brought her. She’s all better now and I hope your mum is too very very soon. Bisous Bailey

    • Yow Bailey…it iz true dat Mum n Mingflower had a speshell bond!! Mum told me she neber thought we cuud bond like diz yet we hab!! Me finkz me havin health issuez haz brought us closer together….
      Mingflower waz adorable frum what Mum told me; alwayz bossin her about n snugglin…so me had BIG pawz to fill 😉
      As fer Mum she iz still sneezy n not quite right….Mum here too bery hot n shivery….eeewwwww…
      Me Mum haz bin pickin at her food too. Funny fing: she can pick n it iz ok but when I pick she callz da Vet panickin!!!! Aren’t Hu’manz crazy bery funny???
