Dash Candles

UPDATE: I was not going to touch this post again, but the response and outpouring of grief for Dash has been so overwhelming that I am humbled at the impact he has made on the blogging and Twittersphere. We thought we just tweeted, appealed and harried people until they gave in. It turns out he had the respect of hundreds, if not thousands of friends who appreciated his work, and the help he gave. I tried to take down all the candle messages but they keep moving.

Today I learned that dear @NikePurrfektcat had started a brief  YouCaring appeal in Dash’s memory for a rescue we nominated, she did it as a surprise and – I was stunned at the response of so many.

We are profoundly grateful for the gracious blog post tributes from our fellow cat bloggers Glogirly, Sparklecat, MariodaCat, CathyKeisha, Texas. How can we ever thank you for your immense support as this terrible time, your comments, and your deep love and support. 

Miranda is tugging at my sleeve asking when her next pet shopping post goes up – I told her we need to take a breath, but we hope to be back to help others, one day.


Friends, my heart breaks. Today our beloved boy Dash passed away after being mauled by two dogs.  My boy, who loved the outdoors, the sunshine, who didn’t mind having suncream or Filtabac on his ears when he went out in the sunshine, who yelled like crazy when it was dinner time. My boy is gone. MY boy who we believed no-one else would want because he had micro-opthamlia, our local vet could not save him.

A neighbour across the back investigated the noise he heard and found Dash, he rushed him down to the vet but he was too late. We are in shock. There is a weight on my heart – only last week we wrote about losing Jami, Homer and friend Smokey8. Dash and I are so proud of his blogging achievements, our daily strike rate has continued to climb with each passing week, and we do not want to lost our friends. Miranda may be waiting in the wings, and take over after a period of mourning. Please, friends – my grief knows no bounds I can write to more.

  2. Marjorie, words do not always help, but you have plenty of them everywhere from which to find solace for Dash’s passing. And he did ‘pass’…he did not go away…Dash is living in your heart, mind and all our collective hearts and minds…his presence will endure the march of time…you’ll see…purromise…Savannah says “luvluvluv you” Miss Marjorie…and so do I…you are an inspiration to me, my writing and Dash will continue to give encouragement to Savvy

  11. Oh, Marjorie, I am so, so sorry. You know that I understand exactly how you feel, as I haven’t quite come to terms with Jami’s death yet. It leaves such a huge empty space in your heart that can never be filled, just pushed to the background after a time. I cry with you. Dash was always there first to help all other anipals. He was my example of a loving heart. I will miss him so much. I send you many comforting purrrrrrrrrrrrrrs.

  18. How terrible! The dogs that did this to your lovely cat, must face he same verdict, they are a danger to other living beings and therefore must be killed. You must tell the police what happened and they have to take action against the dogs and their owner.

  19. Dearest Dash has shared his big heart so lovingly with anipals & his loss leaves us bereft. Dash made our community better & his love will continue. xoxoxox

  20. I am so very sorry to hear of your tragic loss and I can only imagine the grief you are experiencing. I hope, in time, your sadness slips away and is replaced by the wonderful memories you have of your wonderful kitty.

  21. My heart is breaking for you. Dash is –no doubt– playing like a kitten and watching over his human family with love.

    I am so sorry for your loss.

  22. I have no words I met Dash at #nipclub always in the early hours (I’m in UK) he always made me feel loved and froo my tears I am finding it hard to make sense of any of this I miss you dash and I hope we can help your familee you were so loved sweet boy love to you all Moo xxx

  23. Oh, Marjorie, I can’t tell you how extremely sorry I am about your shocking loss. What a cruel, awful ending to a beautiful life. How do I know it was beautiful? Because he was your boy, and I can tell just from knowing you on Petchat that you are big-hearted and kind. Breathe deeply and remember the joy that Dash experienced, and how secure and loved he felt in your home. His life is not defined by its end. I’m sending a big hug your way. xoxoxo

  26. Please accept my sympathy on the loss of DASH!! Altho we do not know eah other I have seen Dash comment on WordPress where Nylablue & I blog & I always enjoyed reading his comments. I found out about Dash via Texas (Tex Cat) on Facebook & had to come over & leave a message.
    I pray in time your memories will be a comfort to you.
    Sincerely, Sherri-Ellen & Nylablue of the Purrfect Pad (WP)

  27. This is absolutely the worst thing we have ever heard happening. With all the bad press that cats have gotten lately about killing birds, this is so, so much worse. We hope these animals have been reported to animal control. Mom’s and our hearts are breaking for you and Dash. That was absolutely no way for him to lose his life. We are praying for you as you grieve. We know you will carry him in your heart forever. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  30. I am so sorry to hear what happened and wanted to come and leave our purrs and words of comfort. You must be hurting so badly. Words cant heal but hopefully can help. Run free sweet dash. Hugs GJ x

  31. Dear Marjorie, I can well imagine what you are going through having lost my sweet Smokey a week ago yesterday. Every time one of our furbabies crosses over the Bridge, we cry and mourn and are left asunder. But there is a special gut wrenching sadness that occurs when our babies, through no fault of their own, leave us in such sad and horrific way. We don,t get a chance to save them, we don’t get a chance to hold them one last time and say, “Until me we meet again.” Please take it one day at a time, take comfort and some solace in all the tributes that will be paid to Dash. In the meantime, I send you all my love and I will be praying for you. Sincerely, Tessie (@Smokey8’s Mom)

    Dash in the meantime will be playing with all his pals at the Rainbow Bridge without a care until you meet again.

  32. Poor baby. That just breaks my heart. He looks exactly like my adopted male cat “Snowball”, wide nose and all.
    Peace be with you, Dash…

  35. We are visiting from Katie Isabella’s blog. We are so sad to hear about Dash. We’re sending lots of hugs and purrs your way. Run free, Dash!

  36. Marjorie — I know I posted on here earlier but it doesn’t show up. I’m saddened to hear of this, and, as I said on Facebook, please don’t hesitate to let me know if there is anything I can do. I am saying lots of prayers and have lit a candle to help guide Dash OTRB. Huge hugzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz … RAY

  37. Dear Marjorie…..we did not know you nor did we know your dear Dash but we find our hearts breaking for you at learning about Dash’s sad end after his wonderful life with such a caring family. He has such a darling face in that photo – I wish we’d known him and you prior to hearing about what happened to him on the CB. How tragic….We hope knowing he will always be with you in your hearts can bring some comfort…..We send hugs of comfort.

  38. Marjorie, I am not sure if you remember me since we we do not get on twitter very much anymore, but I wanted to let you know how very sorry we are.

  40. We are so very sorry to learn that Dash has gone and in such an awful way, that must have left you in such shock. We send you love and rumbly purrs and hope that in time, you will think of the wonderful times you had with such a special and handsome boy. The cats who no one else wants are the ones who leave the biggest paw prints on our hearts.

  41. Sweet Marjorie, we are so very saddened. This is just tragic and heartbreaking. We wish we could wipe your tears away and extend our paws across the world to hold you. Your heart brims with love for anipals everywhere. Dash was such a special kitty and the unconditional love you gave him, made his time on this earth so very special. Please know we are here for you…just clicks away.

  42. I am so sorry about Dash. I did not get a chance to enjoy his blog– I only heard about him from a mutual blogger. My heart is in my throat, thinking about what you must be feeling. Dash sounds like a very special boy, and he will continue to be a very special boy in a lot of people’s hearts.

  44. I am so very sorry that Dash had to run off to the Rainbow Bridge. I do wish people would keep their dogs in their own yards. I didn’t know Dash very well, but I remember when he first started blogging. I know you are heartbroken. I send hugs and my kitties send comforting purrs.

  46. Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo…… we didn’t know you dash but we are crying our eyes out…. oh sweet boy, we are so very, very, very sorry. Words cannot help bring you back, but if they could, we would write to the moon and back and then some. We send all we can which are purrs and love. RIP SWEET DASH. YOU WERE AND FOREVER WILL BE LOVED.
    Tiny, Elioth and Chouchou.

  47. I can not even begin to fathom the emotional place you are in right now, but I did see you took on the blame in one post I so hope that you are able to overcome that guilt. There are things you simply can not foresee. How many times was Dash out and about and was just fine. If not for those dogs he would still be with you. Guilt almost always accompanies grief, and with the circumstances I am sure it is full force. I hope you are able to let go of that guilt and not let it fester.

    My heart goes out to you. My purrs my prayers, my thoughts, are with you and all who loved Dash so. (and purrs for your neighbor for trying to help) I hope the love and the good memories outweigh this pain in time.

  48. I’m here (sob) to pay my (sob) respects to (sob) my furrend Dash! I’m (sob) in shock and can’t (sob) believe this. Dash was (sob) such a good furrend (sob who was always (sob) there for everybuddy (sob). Tons of comforting purrz (sob). His virtual family (sob) loved him as much (sob) as you did and do. (sniffle) So Dash, someday I’ll meet you over the rainbow.

  49. I have very sad ears now!! Dash was one of my first furriends!! I will miss him terribly. Please know we are there for you and I only hope his passage OTRB releases him from pain. I haven’t been on Twitter much recently but his picture always made me smile.

    Much love and hugs!!


  50. We have all lost a dear friend. Dash was a bright light of kindness to all and I am proud to say he was my friend. He was so proud to be featured in BlogPaws newsletter this week. Dash & Marjorie have given so much to the blogging, Twitter & Face Book community. If you ever needed help they were there. Dash will live on in our hearts & in our love. Marjorie, Paul, Peanut (17), Sienna, Miranda, Silver, Jack the Ginger Boy, Harvey the Foster. Tash the Kitten we are here for you now.

  51. Howlo, Whskr. Dearest Dash was one of mywoofself’s furrst twitter pals. You remember, way back more ‘n five years ago. Himself always da grrreatest pal. A grrreat fella. … Ourselves are shocked. Sittin’ ‘ere, hangin’ our heads in sadness. … RIP OTRB, beloved pussin pal. … Many many *paw hugs* + luvs, Tilin

    Mum sez “I’m so, so sorry, Marjorie. I feel such sadness and outrage for what happened to Dash. Your beloved boy. I know how you loved him, how you dearly love and cherish cats, how you always try to help them. I wish I could do more to comfort you than to sit here, thousands of miles away, typing a message. Please do know that I’m thinking of you and that I’ll never forget Dash and all that he did, through you, to help other cats. ~ xx DJ”

    (P.S. – Jus’ so you know: Ourselves would like to join in on twitter remembrances of dearest Dash. But cannot ‘cuz ourselves mysteriously locked out of tweetin’ at moment.)

  52. Oh how our hearts break for you. You were one of Ryker’s first friends on twitter and we have so many fond memories through the years… Words simply cannot heal like we SO wish they could! If we could take your pain away – or better yet, bring your beloved boy back – we’d move heaven and earth to do so. All we can do is stand beside you and grieve with you. We send you all our comforting purrs – much love too…

  53. I am just stunned and heartbroken for you. When I just saw the news I was hoping I was just seeing things. Rest in Peace, sweet Dash Kitten. You will always be loved and remembered.

  54. I did not know your sweet kitty. I wanted to send hugs and purrs. I am sorry for your loss.

  55. Marjorie – you and Dash have been such so kind and compassionate with us as we travel down our Grief journey with our beloved Abby, now I wish to offer you the same in return. I want you to feel free at any time to contact me ManxMnewsATgmailDOTcom about anything. I am so very sorry for the loss of your beloved Dash and can empathize so deeply with the shock and disbelief and sadness you are experiencing. Please know that you did nothing wrong, things beyond your control happened, you are not to blame. Dash would not want you to hold yourself in a state of guilt or blame for this. Dash is now wearing his brightly colored angel wings and Abby was there to greet him as he crossed to the Bridge among his multiple friends who were also there to champion his arrival. The Days ahead will be hard, I will not sugar coat that for you. But know we are all here for you. Dash will always, ALWAYS be with you. Love never dies and like myself you will form a new relationship with Dash it will be a spiritual one that will be as deep as the one you two shared while he was here on this earth. Dash is now free. He has another journey to go on, and you do as well. I will keep you deeply in my prayers and know that I am thinking of you and when I light my candles as I do each evening for Abby, I will light one in honor of Dash.

  58. My heart aches for you. I pray he is waiting for you over the rainbow. He has a special place on Gods lap right now. I too lost a most beloved kitty, Montana, earlier this year and while I still cry for him once in a while, the pain has eased as will yours. My deepest condcondolence.

  59. Marjorie and family … I don’t know what to say, and nothing that ANYONE says will take away the pain I can’t imagine that you’re feeling right now. I just wanted to write to say how VERY sorry I am to hear this awful news, and to add my words of support and concern for you. You & Dash have done so much to help Rachel & Ray Charles, my two fosters, and I want you to know also how grateful we are for all your efforts.

    We’re holding you very close in our thoughts …

  65. My heart is broken!!! I loved precious,loving,thoughtful,funny & friendly Dash since we first met on Twitter. He helped so many kittehs find homes & helped peeps with his kind words. I pray that you will find comfort in knowing he was well loved & admired by all who knew him and he is now able to run free,enjoying the outdoor freedom in safety. RIP my dear furend Dash.

  66. Marjorie – my heart is heavy upon learning of the loss of your beloved Dash. I am so worn out from the loss of my own Mr. Jazz last week, so my words and thoughts are all a jumble. Just know that you are in my thoughts and prayers and I am so sorry that Dash had to go that way. He was a real trooper and how wonderful that he had a loving home with you. If you need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out…

  67. Marjorie, I am so very sorry to hear about Dash and so sad that his life ended the way it did. He had a lovely life with you. Sending love and hugs from me and mum xxx Run free over the rainbow bridge, Dash.

  68. How devastating. I hope you find some comfort in the sad days to come knowing that he had a happy life and will live on in your heart.

  69. I cannot tell you how sad and sorry I was to read this news on the friends of the CB FB page. Sending you heartfelt condolences and purrs. Thank you for loving Dash so much.

    Love from Jan, Milo and Alfie. xxx

  72. I’m soo sorry. I lost my kitty duo to the two dogs down the street. He was sitting on my porch when the two dogs got loose and attacked him. He tried to run away and get up a tree but they were to fast for him. They hurt him so badly that the vet had to put him down. It broke my heart.

  73. We know there is nothing we can really say to make you feel better. However, even though we did not know Dash well, we mourn his passing in such a sad way. He joins many friends at the Rainbow Bridge and will be welcomed there by all. Sending kind purrs to all of you.

    Simba and Audrey

  74. Oh no. Not Dash! I’m so sorry, Marjorie. He was an amazing cat, and I’m so glad I had the chance to know him. And he was so lucky to have you in his life. A cat couldn’t ask for a better family.

  75. We have come over from Brians’ place to say we are so sorry to read that Dash has passed over. Our heart goes out to you.
    Our very best wishes Molly

  76. We are astonished about the sad news. Dash was much much loved and lived in freedom as happy kittie. He will find love, happiness and freedom OTRB too.
    We hug Marjorie, her family and all the furry ones tight tight.

  77. So sad to hear this devastating news. It is one of the fears of mine, besides fire, of my cats getting out and being attacked by dogs. So sorry to know this has happened to Dash and to you…many regrets and many tears so difficult to get through. They depend on us to protect them and when we fail, we wish we could go back in time and change what happened. Yes, if Dash had been an indoor only cat, this wouldn’t have had the chance to happen and I think that will be the most difficult part of this tragedy for you to get past. For now, be like a cat…take comfort in your cat companions and your friends and know we all feel your sorrow, too…

  78. I am so sorry to hear about your sweet kitty. I am heartbroken too. My 18-year-old Midnight Helen made her journey to the bridge 5 days ago. My heart goes out to you.

  79. Oh Marjorie, oh what a terrible thing. I am so SO sorry that your baby has flown to the bridge, God bless him and you. I have tears while typing this because I know how loved he was and is. Much love and warm hugs to you. Purrs and prayers. We know how it hurts.

    I’m right by your side each night and day,
    And within your heart I long to stay.

    My body is gone but I’m always near,
    I’m everything you feel, see or hear.
    My spirit is free, but I’ll never depart,
    As long as you keep me alive in your heart.

  86. Dear Marjorie and pals, What a weight to carry and loss to your family. Dash was an outstanding pal, blogger, bartender, and furiend. I can’t begin to imagine the hole in your hearts and home. He touched many humans and anipals with his delightful and genuine caring for each of us and always made us feel welcome. Sending our love to each of you. Willy and Mom, (Jaymee)

  87. Miss Marjorie, I have many fond memories of Dash. I wish I could list them all. But the best memory of Dash is the fact he was my friend. I will cherish his friendship always. Thank you for sharing your boy with us on twitter.

  88. So very sorry for your tragic loss..My heart goes out to you…Don’t have the words to express my sympathy, but I send biy hugs…Love and tears, Adrienne

  89. Oh my Goddess! I am so very sorry. I can’t imagine the weight on your hearts. So so very sorry. I just feel like I can’t say it enough. Dash will always live on in a special place in my heart. For now, as he has passed OTRB, take comfort that he is resting peacefully in the arms of Lady Bast where he will serve Her until his people come for him. Please accept my most heartfelt apologies. The world lost a beautiful soul.

  90. Dear Marjorie, Paul, Peanut (17), Sienna, Miranda, Silver, Jack the Ginger Boy, Harvey the Foster. Tash the Kitten,
    None of us can imagine the pain you as a family and personally are feeling just now – know that Dash was (and forever will be) loved by so many via all his and your good works. His personality was a shining light to so many via his Blog, Twitter and Facebook. A true gentlman cat and exceptional barktender who loved “smooching” the girls and shaking paws with the boys. He will be in your heart and ours forever.
    With love and sincere condonlences and sympathy

  91. Aunty, can’t find the right words to convey how much Dash means to us. We were proud to be furiends with such a fine fellow. We enjoyed his blog, the old and and the new one. We had the best of times at #nipclub with him. He was always there with a friendly paw to welcome new pals, and a supporting paw when things were tough. We will miss him dreadfully. We send you and Uncle many many hugs and face licks. Dash was one of the best.
