We lost our darling little girl, Suzi, on Friday after a short battle with SCC, we had only had the privilege of being with her for a scant 6 years. She was from a local cat sanctuary - she hid herself out of sight for two years and came out and she chose us. Before we knew it, she had taken up the mantle of Queen and ruled graciously. She loved hunting and eating, as well as sleeping. Now she has gone to the Summerlands where we shall meet again some day and we will be together forever. Missing your chirrups my darling xxx

That’s all it took to fall in love with you, Luna. I’ll never accept why you only got 12 weeks on this Earth, but no other kitten could have achieved more in that time. We truly believed you were our forever cat but sadly, you were only ever going to be our pathfinder, to show us the high standards we should look for, for another kitten in the future to live up to. You truly were perfect. You were clean, funny, friendly, and no cat could have been more affectionate. I’ve been in bed for 9 days since you’ve gone and my love, I need to move on. I feel like I’m just sitting waiting for you in bed, for you to come in and climb on my chest or lap, or bunt into my face with such sheer love it took my breath away. I need to understand that you’re not coming back, no matter how long I lie here. I can imagine every single hair of you and love to stare at the few pictures I have of you. I’ll NEVER ever forget you, but the grief needs to change, I can’t live like this and you wouldn’t want me to. I know you’re safe and well, and I’m so sorry you were sick that last morning, we took the pain away as soon as we could. I will see you again, little legs, and eventually, nothing will part us. We will rehome again once the pain is less, but you will always be my first cat, who filled my heart with love I couldn’t imagine. I am so grateful and will always be humbled that you saw me and just saw happiness. You were fantastic and perfect and we all miss you. Goodbye darling girl x
Back in June, I had lost a cat. Not just any cat, but a best friend of mine. Simba was a very caring tuxedo cat, who I adopted in 2018. Whenever I was feeling sad, she would always comfort me, and I would often give her so much fuss. Losing her, after she went missing for a while, then got hit by a car after her heart gave out (she was an outdoor feline), was the worst thing I've ever went through. She was, and still is, missed by my father, my two younger sisters, my mother, her daughter Inky, and so many others. I am the person who misses her the most. I still do, even with a new cat named Buddy, another black and white feline, who is an indoor cat. Simba was more than a cat, she was a member of my family. I still have her ashes with me, and I am glad she is happy ❤️ Farewell Simba, until we finally reunite in Heaven.
We suffered the heartbreaking loss of my handsome boy, Tom, today. We raised him from being one day old to now, 13 years and 2 months later. Where have those years gone. I will forever miss you running and jumping in my car when I came home. I hope we gave you the best life. And I hope one day I get to see you again, until then I will love you and remember you every day. Thanks for choosing me to be your mummy.
Well - Where do I start - 15.10.2020 I lost you. Firstly I never thought one day I will be an owner of a Mainecoon, after my resilience and stubbornness- I got there. Now you have gone- I am experiencing various emotions. I always carried heavy emotions - always wondered if you were happy, if I deserved you, if I looked after you well, if you were well looked after by me, even I ensured you had everything you could. When you did not arrive for your breakfast this morning- I knew something was 100% wrong. I had weird feeling 2days before about you. Here we are writing about your death, the pain about my loss, my love for you now you has passed away and the universe reveals to me I was carrying heavy emotions for unnecessary reasons unnecessary stress- time is limited- we did not get time enough to enjoy together, the universe knows well, you have gone to a better place with full of love, the universe is revealing to me I have so much to share and to give that now I realised. I apologise but I have always love you that I am sure you know for the cuddles we shared and the kisses we shared. With all my love mummy.
I am completely devastated. We had to put our beautiful Hercules to sleep on Monday. We got him from a lady back in 2015 who said she didn’t want him anymore and if we didn’t take him, he would be going to the rescue centre. We were his 4th home in 4 years. It took a long time for him to trust us, but when he did he was such a cheeky character. We got him a friend later that year to keep him company, but they never really got along. At the weekend we noticed he was not eating and he was hiding away outside or hiding behind the curtain. When we managed to get closer to him, his stomach was swollen and his glands were up under his neck. I managed to get an emergency appointment at the vets at 9:30 on Monday. I was in such a rush I packed him into his basket and raced to the vets, unable to enter the room. They told me he was in a lot of pain and had to be put to sleep! I explained that my partner wasn’t there, as we thought he would be given medicine to feel better. Luckily he turned up to say goodbye and they had to put him to sleep around 10:10. I’m in utter shock and feel so guilty that I could not face being there when they gave him the injection; he was surrounded by strangers, so it’s like I’ve betrayed him at the end, just like the original 4 homes he was with. I loved him so much, and nothing can take this pain away. My other cat is crying and searching for him. I just wish I could explain! We are absolutely heart broken.
I adopted my little girl Rosie the cat 11 years ago when she was 2 years old, she was the most loving and sweetest cat I have ever known. Rosie was a small tabby cat with symmetrical markings on either side of her body that in the light made her coat look almost purple. She loved sunbathing, belly rubs and fuss and attention, she was so docile and she would never harm a fly. She always knew when you weren’t feeling well or was ill, and would stay by your side and help you feel better. She adored fuss, Purring loudly and dribbling everywhere and would often lay on your chest, cuddle up to you and fall asleep. Sadly she started deteriorating and we found out that she developed a brain tumour at 13 years old and we made the hard decision of having her put down. I was heartbroken about this as she was my girl but I needed to do what was best for her. She brought me so much happiness, love and wonderful memories. Rosie was so dearly loved and will be missed. Cats are more than just animals, they are members of family. Adopting Rosie had been the most rewarding experience I have ever made and I would urge anyone looking for a new pet to adopt instead of shop. ❤️
On 3rd October our little man was put to sleep. He was 16 or 17 with heart, kidney and thyroid issue. He kept on becoming dehydrated and each time we would rush him to the vets to be put on a drip plus he would not eat so kept losing weight. On Saturday I just knew we were at the end of the road and I held his head in my hand as he passed. I loved him so much and my heart aches.if I had one wish it would be to bring him back healthy and ready to live again. It will never be the same again.
my baby max-bear was only 17 months old, and a British blue short-haired, he was a timid cat, with his big brother geaorge, who likes to rule the roost, but, they did love one another, he always came back when called, and the sad news of a car hitting him and killing him on Sunday 20th September has absolutely broke mine an husbands heart we cannot stop crying from morning till night, an geoorge looks ever so sad, he keeps looking for him, I do hope he's at peace, he was my little fur baby 💔💔💙
We got Dorothy from CP when she was 12 years old. She had been overlooked because of her advanced years. I fell in love with her the minute I set eyes on her. She was the most loving puss cat ever. She was timid with strangers and didn't like loud noises. She wouldn't go far in the garden unless one of us was with her. She was very vocal, and would talk to you a lot, even at 3am, when she came up for a cuddle. I now find myself listening out for her soft footsteps up stairs, and her meow of "hi, I want a cuddle". She really got under my skin, and I'm struggling to come to terms with her passing. She was 18yrs 7mths when she passed, but we had 6.5 beautiful years with her. Bye bye Dorothy, run free over the Rainbow Bridge 🌈 💖
I got Sam from cats protection 6 years ago originally to help my disabled daughter who was scared of cats. He ended up being my boy though. Cuddles at night and being so gentle with my daughter. He was the perfect addition to our family. Tragically Sams life was cut short by a hit and run! He got hit head on with a car, causing him to break his jaw in several places. The vets tried desperately but it couldn’t be fixed. We had to put him to sleep. He was only 7 years old! His life cut short. I think that’s what makes it harder in all honesty. The loss of Sam has impacted me more then I ever thought it would. He was the most beautiful boy and he is very much missed! Love you forever my boy. Thank you so much for blessing our lives! Xxx
I've had many pets through out my life but the loss of Rosie seems to be hitting me the hardest. She was only 4 months and we only had her for 2 of them and my 2 daughters were besotted with her. On Friday she was in the garden as normal, by afternoon I couldn't see her, I was searching till 1am and my husband drove round our area 3 times calling her. On Saturday my neighbours called to say she was in their garden (we got her from them originally) and was in a bad way. They knew she was missing and we had searched their garden the previous night and that morning. I took her to the vets who confirmed she had been hit by a car, they advised they could x-ray and observe which I wanted to do as even though she was obviously injured she seemed alert and was so young. The next day we were told she had broke her hip, leg and tail which potentially could be dealt with but she wouldn't eat or go toilet and they couldn't do anything for that but observe for 24 hours to see if she would improve or not. Unfortunately she passed before I even had to make a decision for her on what to do. Its only been a few days but I'm devastated, she was so young and her brother is here looking for her, I hate to think of her life cut so short, I keep thinking I see her and remembering all the cute things she did that made my children so happy. It's hard as no one I know loves animals like i do so think I should be over it but I can't stop crying.
We very sadly and very unexpectedly had to say goodbye to our adored Dexter - he was rushed to the vets late at night and they believe he had suffered a suspected aortic thromboembolism. Just a couple of hours before, he had been peacefully curled up asleep on the bed with me, as he did every bedtime. He was 10 years old. When we were given the advice by the vet to put him to sleep, I think a little bit of my world ended there and then - my heart has broken and it hurts so much, it is incredibly painful to think of life without him around. He was such a little character - always there at bedtime to race up the stairs to be the first to claim a spot on the bed, always waiting behind the door when we got home, waking us up early each morning for his breakfast... our home really isn't the same without him. Right now, I am devastated but I hope in due course I will be able to look back on the time we had with him with nothing but joy and love, and cherish all the memories and photos we have of him. At the moment, it is still too painful to do so without floods of tears and a deep aching void in my heart. He leaves behind his brother Logan, who is now my reason to keep going. Every pet deserves to be loved (and missed) beyond words.
Today, on the 10th September, we said goodbye to our beautiful cat Autumn. She was only 5 years old, and was diagnosed with stomach and kidney cancer a week ago. She was in a lot of pain and declining very quickly, so today we made the heart breaking decision to euthanise her. Autumn was a one of a kind cat, my husband and I adopted her from a rescue shelter when we first moved in together and the old age term of “she picked us” was definitely true. She sauntered up to us as though she’d been waiting for us all along, and rubbed up against our legs and purred. We didn’t need to look at any other cats after that, she was ours. Autumn has been there for us through the good times and bad, through my first pregnancy and subsequent birth of our son, and also the death of my father in law. She was the most loyal, friendly, loving and sensitive little soul and there won’t be a day that goes by where we won’t miss her. She was more than just a cat, she was our family and without her there is a huge hole in our hearts. Our house feels so empty without her here, knowing she won’t ever curl up next to us in bed or be waiting for us to come home after a long day at work again, breaks our hearts. 5 years old was too young to go, and she will never be replaced. We love you Autumn, more than words can say our beautiful girl xx
