Farewell to Two Beloved Pets

Cheerios (9 yrs 11 mos) & Lucky (14 yrs, 3 mos)
today left this mortal realm.

Beloved pets,
best buddies to the end,
who will be sorely missed.
We love you, sweet kitties.

Kathy, I'm so, sooooooo sorry. I know how hard it is to lose one pet, let alone two. But I know you've struggled with this lately. Eventually peace will return to your heart as your loss settles in.

I don't know if I shared with you before the site where you can put up a memorial. It's comforting, and I know from experience. Go to

Our memorial for Leo is here:

Hugs - D

My heart breaks for you guys.
This poem made me feel better when Boo left us.
You are in our prayers.
Love Kell

I'm so sorry, Kathy. What a heartbreaking thing to go through. I hope that soon the pain will be softened by all the wonderful memories you have of Cheerios and Lucky.

Thinking of you all.

Oh Kathy, I know the pain of losing a beloved pet. It's hard, I know. Time has a way of softening the awful pain of today. Being the cat person I am and having lost several of my fur babies I know it extremely hard. I will pray for you.

Sue said...

Sorry Kathy. I know how much your kitties meant to you. Hopefully you will find some peace knowing that they are no longer suffering.

Melisa said...

Wow Kathy, I'm really sorry about your dear kitties. Not alot I can say to make you feel better except that you WILL feel better as time goes on. Hug your family, and I'm sending love your way. xoxo

We are a family who loves our pets. Especially our kitties. Our pets are such a comfort to us, and it is so hard to think of them passing. I get tears in my eyes when I see your pictures above, and know how much you loved them...home is not the same with them sad. Thinking of you and know how empty you feel right now. Love, Mom

How ya doin'? I hope you are hanging in there. Hugs to you on the loss of your two beloved kittys.
Thinking about you and hope your heart is healing slowly but surely.

I've been out of the loop checking other blogs, but just read yours about your dear kitties. I am SO sorry to hear you lost them both. What a sad, sad time. We lost our dog last Christmas, and when I was a teen, we lost two dogs the same week, when both were poisoned - I remember the blinding pain and shock.

It can take a long time to get over a beloved pet, so give yourself ALL the time you need. Don't let anyone give you a time-table, ok?

Oh, and congrats on the new car - that's great. :)

I'm a little behind myself on catching up on blogs and I wanted to take a minute to tell you how sorry I am to hear of your loss.

Cooper and I, along with our cats, Josh and Oliver, send lots of hugs and kisses to you and yours.
