Heaven’s Newest Angel

Our sweet boy left us very early this morning. We were both with him. Thank you Ann of Zoolatry

Thank you Pam of Two Spoiled Cats


Thank you Pipo’s Mom

I always say the more nicknames a cat has, the more loved he is. Millie was very loved, we called him Milton Bradley the third, Miltoni, Millie Macaroni, Miller, Mr. Magoo, The MIllyard Man, Ole Blue Eye and so many more names.

He loved his mousie

and his Dad’s lap

and his candy cane.

He loved to be stretched too .

And a good nap in his Dad’s chair.

 A little tv too.


He was so unique with his 15 inch tail, one blue eye and one green eye.I will miss the pitter patter of Millie feet running around the house.And singing him his bedtime song.

We have lost 5 cats in a one year period. I sure hope God gives us a break now.

Thank you all for the purrs and prayers. You are all a blessing.

I will be back for the Fill-Ins on Friday, you can get them on Thursday from my co-host, Lorianne.




  1. I’m so very sorry. There are just no words to say. He was beautiful. Many hugs, prayers and thoughts to you and your family.

  2. We knew it was coming but are still so sad hat Millie has gone OTB. He sure was handsome. You really have had a rough time and we hope things get better for you.

  3. My heart sunk when I saw your title. We are so, so, sorry, Ellen. What a special boy Millie was, I love all his nicknames.
    That is way too many losses in one year, we also fervently hope you can now get a break. Big hugs to you and your family. ♥

  4. Oh meow is me… whatever is coming must require a lot of guardian angels because we’ve seen far too many get their wings.

  5. I am writing this with tear blurred eyes. My heart aches so badly for you. I know how hard these loses are and one is hard enough but 5 is too many in such a short time. I have prayed that God would grant you a reprieve from loss to have time to heal. I wish I could be there in person to just give you a love filled hug! So with this message I send it in Spirit with prayers for healing and peace! Much Love, Deborah

  6. Such a truly loving and happy guy. Sending you all lots of purrs and prayers for the coming days, till the pain goes to leave but the joyous memories. . .
    Gentle purrs

  14. I am sorry to hear of Millie’s passing today. At least he was not alone and had a wonderful life with you. I do believe that one day we will all be reunited with our beloved pets again. 😿

  15. Oh Ellen…..I’m so sorry Millie is gone – what a special guy he was. So happy you and David were with him at the end……he brought you a lot of happiness – that’s what LOVE is. Sending you hugs………….

  16. I know how excruciating this loss is for you. My Coolidge died in the throes in my arms after 17 year happy years even with 4 years of diabetes and hyperthyroid. Taking care of him for his diabetes took up more time than most things and was worth every bit. Administrting his insulin as somerhing we could do together. ❤

    1. Thank you. We gave Prancie and Millie sub q fluids and many meds- I would hgave gladly done it forever. XO

  17. So sorry to hear of your beautiful Millie’s passing. I’m sure he will be lovingly welcomed by those who have crossed the Rainbow bridge before him. Hugs xx

  18. We are so sorry to hear that dear Millie has gone over the Bridge. He sure was a man about the house and that tail was amazing. We know you both will be feeling the sadness and we send our prayers and purrs of support. You have had the worst of years and we really hope you have the next one full of joy. Millie fly free and be welcomed by all your family and friends at the bridge who will show you all the best spots to nap and play. Watch over us dear friend.
    Timmy, Dad Pete and Family

  19. oh my I am sooo sooo sorry, so deeply sorry. 5 cats in one year? Unheard of. Praying for continued happiness and no more sorrow for you and hubby. I am so deeply sorry.

  20. I’m sorry to hear Millie passed away and has joined his beloved siblings over the rainbow.
    In loving connection 💚

  21. Fly free, Millie boy – you sure had a welcoming party waiting for you ! We are sure you will all be keeping an eye on those you left down here. Purrs !

  22. I am so sorry, Ellen. Even though you knew his time left was very short, it makes it no easier.
    So many losses in the past year is too much to bear and I hope the future is much happier.
    My love and condolences go to you and David.

  24. So sorry about Millie. We know he will be missed! It has to be even harder after losing four within a year. We send a warm hug for the humans!

  25. I wish there was something I could say or do to take your grief away, Ellen. I’m praying to God that He does give you and your husband a break now after all of these losses in so little time. Millie was so very blessed to have you, and now he’s watching over you like you watched over him. Prayers and hugs to you.

  26. It is hard to loose a beloved cat. It is harder to lose several fairly close together.
    We send you and your family lots of hugs, love and purrs.
    Your home must feel a bit hollow 🙁
    Purrs, Georgia and Julie
    and mum Nancy

  27. I’m so sorry, Ellen. He was unique, and his spot will be impossible to fill, but you have many memories. That’s a lot of loss for one year. I hope it’s done for you for quite a while now.

  28. So, So sorry about Millie. It is soooooo hard to lose our fur friends. Sending lots of hugs etc. Just know that Millie had such a good life with you so he was soooo lucky. You have had a lot of losses lately. Hope things will get better for you.

  29. I’m here to pay my respects to Millie aka all those other names. *bows head* You gave him the perfect home. I’m sending more comforting purrz.

  30. So long sweet, darling Millie.

  31. I feel sadness in my heart for you and your furmily, Miss Ellen; so many hard losses , so close together:(

    Millie was much loved, and he will never be forgotten, as you have made countless memories that are in the treasure box in your heart, to be opened and cherished whenever you need to comfort yourself about Millie, and all your other angels.

    I too hope and pray this is the end to your loss for a very long time.

  36. Sending you hugs, Ellen. I am so sorry. I am happy you and your husband were with Millie. He lived a life with you knowing he was loved and at the end he knew peace and love surrounded him. Five kitties… I know it must be unbearable. Sending you prayers and I do hope you get the break you ask for, it’s time for some healing.

  37. Such sad news to read. Millie was a handsome fellow, and clearly had style all his own. Each loss is hard and so many must be hard indeed. God bless you. Godspeed, Millie.

  38. Ellen, I’m so sorry to hear about Millie. Losing 5 cats in one year is more than one can bear. Sending hugs, blessings and purrs.

  39. Oh, Ellen, I can’t imagine the pain of losing 5 babies in a year; losing 2 in 2 weeks devastated me and I still feel depressed when I dwell on it…Your strength is amazing and I can only wish you peace and comfort once again, incredibly too soon…I will keep you and your family in my prayers and hope this terrible streak will end and your hearts be able to start healing…My sincere condolences=your Millie was a gorgeous, unique boy…Sending big hugs and loud purrs…XO…J, Halle, Sukki……………..”Always the years between us…Always the years…Always the love…Always the hours…”~Virginia Woolf

  43. We are so sorry about Millie. You’ve had it really rough lately. What a charming cat Millie was. I talk to my Angel Tigger almost Daily and she told me she hadn’t been that busy and was hoping to stay that way. You see she has the important job of greeting the new angels and showing them around and playing with them. I think Millie and Tigger will get along just fine. Once again we are so sad to hear this news.

  44. Ellen and David, I was so sorry to hear of Millie’s passing. I know you were expecting it, but I know it didn’t make it any easier. You have suffered way too many losses. I can’t even imagine how awful that must feel. My heart aches for you, and I will continue to keep you in my prayers. Millie will be remembered on Sunday selfies this weekend. I am so happy he was there this past Sunday. Much love and hugs, Janet

    1. Thank you for these kind words and for honoring Millie on Selfie Sunday. XO and love to you too.

  45. We are so sorry to hear about Millie. The Mill Cat. The cat of many nicknames. We are only barely online right now, but we really wanted to offer our Best Purrs Of Comfort to you.

  46. I can’t tell you how sorry I am about your loss. It’s been a very difficult time for you with all this grief. I do hope that you have a break now, so you can begin to heal. Sending lots of hugs your way xo

  47. Again I am so sorry for your loss. Millie was certainly loved with all of those nicknames. You’ve had a tough year but you are due for some good times. Please take care of yourself.

  48. We are so sorry, Ellen. Thank you for loving Millie so much, and for sharing him with all of us. Yes, you certainly could use a break from the sads. Sending you love, purrs and prayers, dear friend.

  49. Aw, Spitty and I are so sorry to hear. He looks like a wonderful boy, and he sure got plenty of all the things he loved best (mostly dad’s lap and his mama’s arms it looks like 😉 What a good kitty, and love-filled life.

    Yes, we are purraying that all your kitties stay well and happy for a looooooong loooooooong time XOXOXO Spitty & the Human

  50. Ellen,

    My dear sweet friend, how I’m sorry that another beloved pet has crossed the rainbow bridge. As I’ve said before you and the hubs have made the lives of each furbaby a little better by taking them into your home. We know the average life of an outdoor kitty is far shorter than that of an indoor pet. You cared and loved for each of yours deeply. This day I believe in my heart that Millie is a little kitten once again, frolicking in fields chasing butterflies without a care. No fear of predators or want for food and shelter. All of his needs are supplied endlessly and at night, he sleeps at the feet of Jesus. God’s blessings to you, my dear! XOXO

  51. I am devastated to hear Millie is gone. He was a tough little guy with a very long tail. His eyes made him unique. There was so much to love about him that he will always stay within you.


    1. Thank you. He was so unique and such a sweet boy. He will always be loved and missed. XO

  52. Oh, sweet Millie. We are sorry to hear you have crossed the Bridge but know you will continue to feel love from your family and so many of us. Run fast and free, sweetheart.

  53. Millie sure was lucky to have shared his life with you. Your photos show what a sweet kitty he was. So sorry for your loss.

  54. O Mi Cod Millie too? Heartbreak by the numbers, as the country song goes…I hope your heartaches fade and become joys one day remembering your little angels in heaven! How loved you and they must be to get 100+ replies!!

  55. Oh Miss Ellen, you have had so much loss in a year’s time and now another. Maybe Millie was just so heartbroken over her sisters and brofurs going OTRB earlier and didn’t want to be without them. I send kisses to you and 15andMeowing as you grieve and try to heal in the days ahead. Purr purr purr.

  56. Charlee: “We’re very sorry to hear that Millie had to go away.”
    Chaplin: “Run free over the Rainbow Bridge, Millie, and have fun playing with all the butterflies and dragonflies there.”
    Charlee: “We are sending you lots of purrs at this difficult time.”
    Lulu: “And I send fluffy tail wags!”

  57. Oh awnty Ellen, we’re so sorry. We could’ve swore we commented already. We so hate you havin’ to go thru all of this. Purrlease, ifin you need anythin’, let us know. We luv you very much and are sendin’ lots and lots of hugs and purrayers.

    Luv ya’

    Dezi, Raena and mommy Audra
