Woulda been more apropos if it was a catclaw bush, AMIRITE?



(Okay, maybe not purple. Is that purple? I don't know my colors.)

Awww, super sad about Flux for you.

And I'd call that more toward the pink side of things honestly.

Kristan said...

Ditto what Matthew said, on both counts. #RIPFlux

Aw, thank guys. We're okay and happy and I'm sure she is too. :) And you're all right. It's probably pink.

Elizabeth Ryann said...

Aww. I'm sorry about Flux. But she sounds like a totally awesome cat, and what better gift to leave you with than ghost flowers that make you sneeze? What a super perfectly sweet kitty-logic present.

K. Marie Criddle said...

Thanks, Elizabeth! Yes, total kitty-logic there. :D She was crazy sweet in her own weird way.

They look more pink, but they're so pretty. I'm not a fan of spring because it's one step away from summer, but I love spring flowers.

I'm sorry about flux. I understand what you mean about life going on. When my dog died I was really broken up about it for a while. At some point in my funk, I learned to be okay with it, to accept that things like this happen. Then I could move on.

so sorry to hear about Flux! (awesome name, BTW). and maybe it's the ghost pollen that makes the flowers look purple to you and pink to us? crazier things have happened.

K. Marie Criddle said...

Aw, Britany, my heart to you too. But it's nice to know that we aren't paralyzed by death and we can move on. Thanks for stopping by, as always. :)

And Abby I swear that's it. In real life they totally look purple. And wavy around the edges. And they also haunt my neighbor so....who knows? :D

Poor Flux.

Where the Purple-ish Flowering Bush Grows.

Steph! said...

That's a Bougainvillea you silly girl.

So sorry to hear about your kitty... Pets with personality are always the hardest to lose.
:-(

Peggy said...

Awww. I love that spring is loving you back! Not only does it have flowers, but it has a LOT of pretty flowers. It's loving you big time.

And Flux is about the awesomest cat name ever. I hope there's lots of stairs to chase people up in heaven.

All Hail Father Superflux. Or as Devin would say when he couldn't pronounce his "L"s.....uh never mind.

K. Marie Criddle said...

Taryn - Thanks for the thoughts...at least she didn't get eaten by a mountain lion, right?

Steph! Bougainvillea, I totally knew that. Those were all over your house when we were kids, weren't they? (I was colorblind then, too.)

Peggy - My husband didn't want a cat originally, so he demanded naming rights when we did get one. "Father Superflux" was her official title, "Flux Capacitor" on her vet records and just "Flux" to her friends. I know...we need more kids to name. :D

Heather - Confession: Sometimes I'd skype you just to hear Devin say hi to F@$!*s.

B/J Thompson said...

Ah....Flux! Yes, Bougainvillea. One of the only plants that can survive the Arizona summers.

Keriann Greaney Martin said...

Aww, how sad :(. I loved your drawg as always. Isn't it funny how some cats will chase you for no reason? My parents' cat attacks my feet when I walk by him. I have to walk really slow to avoid claws in the foot, LOL.

RIP Flux!
