We are so sorry to hear of this sweet mancat's passing. You were the first blog we started following, years ago, and have always been one of the most special to us. We know you are destroyed tonight, losing such a special furriend. No words from us can make this easier, but know that Eric and Flynn were and are loved, and the rest of your family as well. - heads bowed, the Whiskeratti.

Dear Jackie.....there are no words. I know Angel Sammy and Angel Eric were there with so many others to welcome him but I also know your heartache. I love that photo of the boys.....reunited again but their hearts are always and forever with you and Ivor.

Love.......Pam

It is never easy to lose a cat, either an old cat or a young cat. My Sandy lived over 20 years; Butler less than 15 months.

Katie Isabella said...

It breaks my heart in two. Just the saddest thing. Flynn, I have loved and still do love you and Eric so much. You will be in my memory always dearest boys. What a treasure you were to your mum and dad. And to each of us. I love seeing you both in that photo, reunited there in the picture and in Heaven as well. Please accept my deepest heartfelt condolences. I know it is a terrible time there without him. I am so sorry. xxxxoooo

Annie Bear said...

I'm so deeply sorry for the loss of you dear Flynn.

Angel, Kirby and Max said...

I can not see to type for the tears. We loved both of your boys dearly. I know it was a hard decisions but the right one. Eric and Flynn loved forever and together again..

Hugs and love to both of you!

Quill and Greyson said...

Oh no! We are so very sorry to read this my friend. Our deepest purrs and love to you and your hubby at this sad time.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

I am so very sorry to hear that your beautiful boy made his journey to the Rainbow Bridge. He and Eric were so very special and such long time friends. My heart is so heavy and my words so insufficient for the sorrow I know you feel. I am just so sorry Jackie. Thinking of you and I will keep you in my prayers.

Brian said...

Oh dear friends, we sure weren't expecting to see such sad, sad news. I am so sorry your dear boy Flynn had to go. We loved him so much and he felt like part of our family, as did Eric. Love and hugs from each and every one of us here. Run free dear Flynn, you will always have a special place in my heart. Mom and Dad, we love you guys.

William's Kith & Kin said...

Oh, this has just made all of us weep. Dear Flynn, with his beloved brother at last, but oh, what a deep deep hole he will leave. Our hearts are with you both at this very sad time.

meowmeowmans said...

Oh Jackie. Even though we knew Flynn had health issues for quite some time, we are devastated that it was time for him to make his journey to the Bridge. He and Eric, and you and Ivor, have been such wonderful friends to us for so long that we feel as though we have lost a family member. Surely Flynn and Eric are together again, chasing mousies and lounging in big giant flower pots. And together with all of our beloved ones who have gone before.

We love you always, Flynn, and you will forever live in our hearts. Fly free, until the day we see you again, dear sweet boy.

Hugs, purrs, prayers and much love to you, Mum and Dad. <3

Mariodacat said...

We are so very very sad to hear this. Everyone, including us, loved Flynn and Eric. Now they are together once again and leave behind broken hearts. Such beauitiful furbabies. My heart is breaking for you his pawparents - we know how hard it is.

Melissa, Mudpie and Angel Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

We didn't know you for long Flynn, but we loved you and will miss you desperately. Heaven gained a precious little angel tonight. Sending much love to those you left behind.

Anonymous said...

My thoughts and prayers are with you as you release little Flynn. I know you will have such an empty space in your hearts for him. So hard. But I do believe he is well again and with Eric.

Flynn and Eric were such a favorite of mine ever since I started reading cat blogs. I will never forget them, or both of you their Mom and Dad.

Much Love,
Lily
�� A heart for each of you.

The Island Cats said...

Our hearts are broken along with yours. We love Eric and Flynn and the only comforting thought we have is knowing that the two of them are together again roaming the grassy fields at the Bridge and hunting for mousies. We send you comforting purrs and gentle headbutts.

Fly free, Flynn. Say hi to Eric for us. We miss you both.

M Dawson said...

I can find no words big enough to describe Flynn's loss. We are heartbroken here, Flynn was like a family member to us.

We will miss you Flynn more than words can say.

Cathy Keisha said...

I'm here to pay my respects to dear Flynn. *bows head and sobs uncontrollably* I love him so much. I'm sending comforting purrz to your Mum and Dad. I know they hurt worse than I do.

Marty the Manx said...

Jackie and Ivor we are so very very sorry that Flynn has joined Eric at the Bridge. We are going to miss him so terribly much and are so thankful for all the extra time we had with him. Our hearts are aching with this huge loss. Sending luv and comfort to you both.
Marty, Mom and the Gang

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Much love to you as you mourn the loss of your fantastically wonderful Mancat. Spitty had mountains of respect for your beloved Flynn, and we bow our heads as he heads Onward to be with his Eric. You were the BEST pawrents to both of them. They were lucky, lucky boys. XOXOXO

Summer said...

It's a very sad day for us here too. We will miss Flynn so much. He was a fixture in our home and our blogging world. Purrs to you both.

Jans Funny Farm said...

So sorry, Jackie. I know this is so painful. Sending a big, warm hug!

A few Good Cats said...

I just heard the awful news about Flynn. He had a good long life, but it could never be long enough. So many cats wait for us at the Bridge.

Just Ducky said...

Farewell dearest Flynn. You were a wonderful gorgeous ginger and you will be missed. Say hi to the gang at The Bridge.

Comforting purrs you your beans.

Punapippuri said...

I am so very sorry, Jackie and Ivor. I read the news in the early hours and spent the rest of the night thinking about my favourite orange farm mancat, and wishing I had got to meet him. But I felt I had met him through you and the wonderful posts and photos, and stories you told. 'Legend' doesn't cover it. And the way he kept going for the last years was incredible- but something must have made Eric call to him and now they are reunited. You were the best humans they could possibly have had, and they had the best environment ; and had you trained going for walks etc. I know there'll be huge emptiness now. I've lit a candle on the Catio and there's nearly 24's daylight now but in autumn I shall look for Flynn's tailio in the sky, dancing with all the others in the Northern Lights. With much love and many hugs, Karin and the gang in Finland(N).

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

We are so sorry to read that Flynn had to be helped over The Bridge. We are all in sorrow here for you. TBT turned on the Puter and visited Cat Blogosphere and saw. He called us all over at once. Since his eyes were dripping tears, we guessed what it was about.

We and TBT have been expecting this sad day; we knew Flynn was struggling. But you never expect it on anny particular day. That it is a day we will all reach, Beins, kitties, woofies and all, does not matter, it is still a sad day.

Flynn (and Eric) were 2 of our favorite kitties. Their wide-ranging adventures over the fields encouraged US to spend time outdoors exploring The Big Back Yard observing the local critters; hunting small ones and watching larger ones carefully.

There is SO MUCH we learned from them both, but this is not the place to talk of that. Today is a time to simply remember all the good adventures they had, their happiness together, and how Flynn kept up the tradition after Eric left.

Today, our thoughts are of you, his pawrents, and the sadness you are feeling. TBT says he knows the sadness in your heart in general having lost Skeeter and LC years ago.

All of us here share your grief and wish you comfort and care and love... We kitties are sending our Best Purrs Of Comfort.

Run free, Flynn. Run free of pain and tiredness there over The Bridge and be young and healthy. Sit quietly with Eric again. Meet departed friends again...

We here will remember you.

Erin the Cat said...

This is the saddest, truly saddest news that I have awoken to. Oh my, dear sweet Flynn, my heart is rent for your loss and tears fill my eyes and fall to the keys as I type. Your special friend, a special friend and visitor to us all, leaves that warm and special place in your lives and heart to cross to a new life with Eric and friends. My deepest sympathy to you Jackie, and Ivor. Sending love and purrs to help soothe your heart...Erin & Mark

My thoughts and prayers are with you both...I know Flynn and Eric are together again and having wonderful adventures at the Bridge, but I also know that doesn't ease your grief. Hugs from me and purrs from Nicki and Derry.

Anonymous said...

Knowing this would happen sooner rather than later, doesn't make it easier. You can't really prepare. Jackie, you've had a rough year what with your own illness, so losing Flynn seems really unfair. We join with all the commenters in saying how much we'll miss him...and him with Eric. Most of all, though, much sympathy, support, and love to you and Ivor.

Lizzie, Max & Tuck

Pix Under the Oaks said...

I am so sorry. So sad to hear this. I know Flynn is at peace and is comforted by Eric. I wish I could say something to make your broken hearts better. My heart and thoughts are with you this morning.

We are so sorry that Flynn has gone to the Bridge but know he is with Eric and both are young healthy and watching over you. You gave both of them a long wonderful life. We will.miss your Flynn as if he was one of our own. Sending love and healing light to you both.

Kitties Blue said...

We were unprepared to hear this today. We know Flynn was looking extra tired in his selfie on Sunday, but we were certain he would rally again. Mom is rarely speechless, but she is today. We loved Flynn so much as so many did, and though he will remain in our hearts always, he has left a huge hole there as well. We know he had so, so many friends and brother Eric waiting for him, and he will be healthy and strong again. Flynn was always in our prayers along with you, Jackie. That will not change. We know Flynn looks extra handsome in his wings and is already searching for mousies in the never-ending green fields. Sending love 🐈🌺💖, Janet, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astriid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

Cheysuli and gemini said...

The woman saw this last night and has been so heartbroken for you. We loved Eric and Flynn and were so sad when Eric left. While we knew that Flynn had lived on extended time for quite awhile now, we are still sad that it has happened. Headbumpies to you as we know you both must be extra sad to have lost your boy-

Caren Gittleman said...

we are simply heartbroken by this sad, sad news. I didn't know til I was at Sammy and Teddy's blog this morning. Flynn was such a fighter, he really truly hung on sooooo long. What a strong boy. He gave so many of us so much joy.....from mousie hunting with Eric, to being a master of the Sunday Selfies. Flynn was such a vital part of this blogging community. He will be deeply, deeply missed. My heart goes out to you and your husband (one of the best cat daddies ever). I know how devastating this has to be. Sending prayers of strength and comfort and much love with our most heartfelt sympathy. xoxoxoxo (((hugs)))) catchatwithcarenandcody

Kari said...

The news of Flynnie's passing is unbearable. Our love and prayers are with you, Jackie and Ivor. We have loved Flynn, (and Eric) as if he was our own. The love we have for him will never die. His beautiful spirit will always be a part of us. There is little that can comfort all of us whose life he so enriched except to believe he is again with is brother, both strong and healthy and we'll get to see him again when it is our time to cross.
Flynnie was a gift from God. And we'll keep that gift inside of our hearts forever.

Kari said...

P.S. Our special candle has just been lit for Flynn . In this sad and dark time, it's little light will remind us of how Flynnie brightened our lives and let him know we think of him as he makes his transition.

TK and Pip said...

I am so sorry. But oh what a sweet, sweet-life you gave to Flynn and Eric. Very few cats get to live their lives to full cat potential the way your boys did.
I know how you both love him, and I know your hearts are breaking. And I know there are no words that can ease that pain.
I believe that they are both near to you, waiting together, until you can all be together again.

God's Speed, Flynn.

John Bellen said...

This is terrible news. I was hoping so much that Flynn would go on. You gave him a lifetime of love and care, and allowed him to live in comfort for such a long time; alas, it is never long enough. My best wishes go to you both. Godspeed, Flynn. Eric is waiting to see you again.

Forty Paws said...

We are so very sorry that Flynn crossed over. We know that Eric, and so many that have crossed over were there to meet him and show him around. And now he is running free and living a healthy, happy life again. From all of us at Forty Paws.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

I am so very sorry. So many tears for you. I hope it comforts you to know that you gave Flynn a wonderful life and he is with his beloved Eric now. My condolences and prayers.

We are so sorry for loss of your sweet Flynn. Sending prayers and hugs to you.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

I am so very sorry. Since I started following Flynn and Eric, I've mourned not knowing more about Eric (I remember one of my comments you replied to saying Eric used to pounce on Flynn all the time ... much to Flynn's annoyance). I treasured your Friday flashbacks when I could see your beautiful boys together. I can't imagine how much Flynn missed his brother. I can't imagine your sense of loss - because I myself am in tears. Flynn was one of the first kitties that truly caught my heart around the blogosphere. He won't be forgotten and he is very loved - as are you. Thank you for sharing your boys with us and making the world a happier place for those of us who read along.

With very much love

LP said...

Dear Jackie and Ivor,

We were all so sad to hear that Flynn's time had indisputably arrived. We know how difficult it is to make that final decision and to say good-bye one last time. Please know that all the love you gave Flynn now fills your hearts as does all the love he had for the both of you. Rest in peace sweet Flynn. We know Eric, and our angels Leo, Tulip , Lewis, Isadora and so many more of your angel friends are welcoming you with open arms.
All our love and hugs to you Jackie.

Altho we did not know Flynn for years I so enjoyed visiting your blog & seeing your marvellous boy. I knew from the last few pix he was not doing well (he looked a lot like Nylablue near the end.) I tried to prepare myself for Flynn's passing...but the tears keep coming....I am so very sorry for your loss. May Flynn run free in Summerland.
Love Sherri-Ellen :(

I'm so sorry that you have lost your handsome Flynn. May you find a little comfort in the love we're all sending you.

Peaches and Paprika said...

Oh NO! We are crying over this news. We have always thought of Flynn as our sweet orange boyfriend, one of the first boys who ever wrote us and we enjoyed so much his presence in our life. We noticed he looked tired on Sunday but as sweet as ever. Our hearts go out to you Jackie and thank you for sharing Flynn with us! We know there is a place beyond the bridge and know he is cavorting with Eric now. Love from Carol, Peaches & Paprika!

Rosemary B❤️ said...

One of my first bloggie kitty friends ever, back when I had Caesar and Princess. I loved your boys, I loved both of you and the adventures you shared. I know They were waiting in Heaven with open paws for Flynn, and Eric was there too. And also Pierro, he died last October at only 8 1/2 years.
Grieving is once again a process, and I pray for both of you to cope with and accept the absence. You are not alone. Savor the process together. There will be strong day, and not so strong days. Remember, we are there along with you.
Love always, Rosemary from Thecornishkitties.blogspot

I know you both realize that Flynn was cherished by so many but none as much as your own love for him. Your two ginger boys loved you back. Such a wonderful long life both had. Especially Flynn. My heart touches yours in grief over his passing yet also touches with joy over your shared deep love. Linda and Savannah

Goldie and Banshee said...

Sweet, sweet Flynn. We are so sorry for your loss but know he will be in very good company over at the Bridge. Eric will be glad to have his bro with him though he will be missed greatly this side of the veil. Purrs to you all.

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

I am so sorry for your loss. May it merely be temporary and not be too awfully long before you-all will be spending all of eternity together in our Heavenly Father's Kingdom of Heaven. Now, I cannot say, "Thus saith the Lord," about this as I can other things, but I cannot imagine Heaven being nearly as joyous without our beloved pets being there with us.

Debra Taylor said...

We are so sorry to learn Flynn is gone. My heart goes out to you. In February, we had to let our dear Tabby go, so we know how awful this feels. I hope you can get some comfort from knowing that a pet usually hangs around you in spirit for awhile before moving on permanently.

Oh I'm so so sorry to hear this news. I stopped blogging a long while back but still kept up with some of them, and as with many Eric and Flynn were some of the first kitties we met when we started out. Such sweet boys, loved to follow their adventures. Big hugs to you.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. I haven't been online in a long time for various reasons, but I think about all of you often. Sending love and purrs, most especially from Grr. She and Midnight & Cocoa are really showing their age recently - it's so hard to lose these furry loves.

Tears fall from my kitty eyes & my humans', too. Though we didn't know your Flynn we are sad for you. We send our hugs. Another angel kitty has returned to the clouds. RIP dear, Flynn. - Valentine

CCL Wendy said...

I am so sorry for your loss, and I know that Flynn's absence will be keenly felt for a long time to come. Please take solace in the knowledge that Flynn had the most marvelous life a cat could ever have. He had a loving home, and the ability to explore the great outdoors at will -- and what a landscape he had to explore! And now as you have pointed out, he will be reuniting with your beloved Eric, too.

I know after losing our Dante that I had to grieve, but it was mitigated by the fact that he had a fantastic life while he was here. Our little Domino has recently passed, too. The love is eternal.

Wishing you peace.

The Church Cat Family said...

I have leaky eyes and my heart is breaking. I'm so sorry. Words can't describe how we're feeling right now, and they fall so short in our efforts to comfort. Eric and Flynn are both together now and we will keep them in our hearts. Sad purrs, but lots of love ~ Julie, Tinker, Anastasia, Chopin and Bridgie xxxxx

Sabina Ayne said...

I am so sorry to hear that Flynn has crossed the Bridge. I'm sure you will miss him so much. Take a little comfort in knowing he is reunited with his brother and other kitties he know were there to greet him. And one day in the far off future you will be reunited with both of your ginger babies again. We love you are sending love your way.

Everycat said...

Farewell handsome Flynn, be renewed and reunited, chase those mousies again with Eric We are so sad and sorry to learn of your leaving. You and your brother are legends and will stay forever in all of our hearts. We send your Mum & Dad so much love, keep an eye on them both for a while, rain purrs down for them both. Our rumbly purrs are never enough, but we send them to help and let you know that even though we aren't around much now, we still care for you all.

Love from Jane The Ape, Mungo & Jet xx >^..^<

Seville at Nerissa's Life said...

Oh Flynn...

This simply breaks my heart, reading this, although I know it shouldn't. 'Cause I KNOW you're up in Heaven now, with your brother Eric, happily romping through Heavenly nip fields, chasing butterflies. And I KNOW that you will never again feel pain. Never again be tired. Never again feel the aches that come to us all, with age.

And even though your peeps are gonna miss you so very much, you will always remain in their hearts. Always. Forever.

And even though your pals are gonna miss you so very much, you'll always be in our hearts, too.

Until we meet again. Love and purrs always, Seville.

I am so sorry for the loss of your kittie Flynn! May he fly free and be with those who have gone before him.

Dear Jackie and Ivor,
May Day was the day my dad died years ago so I'll always remember Flynn. Nothing will take the ache away right now but I pray your grieving journey is gentle. I haven't been able to be online as much or blog hop but your beautiful Friday posts of photos past are all the more meaningful and cherished now. Seeing the boys romp and enjoy adventures gave me much joy over the years and will again. When Merlin died, I couldn't bear to look at his photos for weeks but eventually I did and noticed things in the photos I hadn't seen before. As new edits happened, his memory grew stronger and the sadness eased. I wish the same for you. Big hug xoxox

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Oh dear Jackie....my heart is heavy at your sad news. Your ginger boys have been a big part of the blog journey we have enjoyed over the past decade. A trip to the Devon coast to enjoy the wanderings of two ginger cats was always an armchair delight for us at the cozy cottage...I know Miss Peach will be waiting to greet Flynn to the ginger cat club in the heavens. May memories comfort the cat shaped holes in your hearts...God bless you!
Love Karla

We are just crushed that you had to leave Flynnie. We are happy that you and Eric are reunited and chasing mousies in the fields at the Bridge. We will never forget you and our hearts go out to your mum and dad.

I am broken hearted. Eric and Flynn were a couple of our oldest internet friends, and I loved seeing them and their outdoor adventures. My thoughts and prayers are with you both. No doubt, Skeezix and Eric are so happy to welcome him to the Bridge.

Cleo said...

Oh dear, I'm so sorry to read this, and dad is very sad about Flynn. He's been reading about you guys for several years, he says. Reading this made him think of Orbit again, and he feels your pain. Please know you are in our thoughts, prayers and hearts as you make your way through the coming days.

Old Kitty said...

Oh I am so sorry! Dearest Flynn! We have always loved reading of yours and angel Eric's adventures! We are truly heartbroken. Gentle hugs and purrs to your family. Take care x

Hilary said...

Oh no.. I am so sorry... I'm crying as I write this... I know that Flynn hasn't been well for a very long time. But he always reminded me of Alex. Such a fighter, a man that always pulled through despite the odds. I knew in my head this day would come, but I hoped he'd just keep pulling through for more years. He was such a special man who touched so many hearts, especially mine. He is finally at peace and reunited with his brother, Eric. I know they are running and playing... I am sending so much love to you because I know how much your heart is breaking right now...

Dragonheart, Merlin, and Devi said...

We are so sad to hear that you, Flynn have gone to the Bridge. Our hearts are breaking for your mum and dad. They have our deepest condolences.

Jasper McKitten-Cat said...

My heart just breaks with the news of Flynn. We were just talking about him the other day, and his camera that he would wear when he would go out and explore the fields. We'll miss our old friend. He was the best mouser we knew. Rest in Peace...
