Melissa's Mochas, Mysteries and Meows

Blogging friend and colleague Melissa runs the nicest blog you could hope to read called Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows. As you can guess it’s about her two loves; books and cats. Her cat Truffles has taken centre stage alongside fun book reviews giving her own special short ‘n sweet spin on reviews too. That is until the 8th of July when a sudden catastrophic saddle thrombus (a blood clot at the base of her aorta) tore Truffles away from the lady who loves her most.

Emotive words? For sure. We lost Dash as suddenly, and abruptly, and heart wrenchingly, and we know Melissa will grieve more deeply than we can possibly venture to imagine at this moment. We feel powerless to help, but we and many others will be ready for Melissa if she needs us, when she says she missed Truffles and feels bereft and empty, when it all gets too much as the tears keep coming.

Please, if you have no already done so, join us in leaving your condolences at Melissa’s post for her delightful muse Truffles.

Harvey, Miranda, Silver, Phoebe and Marjorie

    This sudden loss was so shocking and heartbreaking. We had never heard of a saddle thrombosis before. Truffles was so young and full of life, it saddens us so deeply. We have already communicated with Melissa. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    We were just heartbroken when we heard about Truffles – she and Melissa were so helpful with the promotion for Rescued. What a terrible thing to happen to such a lovely pair. 🙁
