We have just lost you today and are devastated. I feel angry we only had a year together. I feel sad there will be no more. The sudden loss has broken our hearts. We wish you were still here bringing all the joy and laughter and fun. Goodbye our beautiful son we will forever love you.
We said goodbye to our beautiful girl earlier this week - the vet came to the house. I am lost, heartbroken and feel so guilty that I had to make the final call, but Holly could no longer eat and had suspected cancer of the tongue. I am still going over every appointment and the chain of events in my head, wondering if I did enough, tried enough and asked enough questions. We had tried for months to treat it, but nothing worked and when her feeding tube dislodged the vet said it would be dangerous and stressful to put her through inserting a new one in. She removed the tubes and sent us home with Holly to give us time to think and come to terms with everything. I prepared every food I could to try to get Holly to eat that evening - I wanted to prove she was going to get better - she desperately wanted to, but couldn’t chew or swallow. She was still sitting by the fire and coming for cuddles, which made it even harder, but seeing the dramatic weight loss and her desperation to eat made me come to the final decision that I couldn’t see her suffer any longer - I was keeping her going for me, not for her. I am still reliving the day and I feel the need to talk. I’m still researching if I could or should have done more - it’s just so hard to accept. Holly came to be with us purely by chance and my goodness she was so loved and adored. Rest in peace my beautiful, gorgeous girl. Xx
Mikey, our beautiful, friendly kitten, killed today by a car. He was only seven months old, but made a huge impression of love in our lives. We miss you Mikey Moo, you will be forever loved and forever missed. Tell Bumbles we love him and miss him too 💙😔
I don’t even know where to begin, but what I do know is that you were the best thing that ever happened to me. Not a day would go by that I wouldn’t lean over, kiss your soft head and tell you that you were the best thing in my world. I’d be met with your characteristic dribble and rumbling purr. It’s all the little things I miss the most - you holding my finger in your toe beans and squeezing it tight, sleeping above my head or hogging the bed, your raspy funny little meow, you supervising me up the corridor to your bowl, using your soft belly as a pillow and even shaking your dribble on me. I can still see the outline of you now, sat on your favourite footstool in the warm glow of the lamps, trust blinking at me and looking so content. You truly saved me Basil. Without you the world feels so empty and cold. You were my everything.
My Coco shared 15 years of her life with me she was diagnosed with kidney failure and overactive thyroid she passed away yesterday I miss her terribly she was my life and joy. I’m finding it very difficult to cope I work from home she was following me around the house i constantly spoke to her I don’t know if I’m going to get through this She passed away in her sleep I knew she hadn’t had long to live as she was not in a good way on Sunday I was planning to take her to the vet Monday morning she had already passed. My Coco love and miss you so much
We lost our beautiful boy only yesterday. He was such a wonderful companion with such funny little quirks. I can't quite get used to the idea he's not here to greet us when we get home from work/school, demanding food as soon as we're in the door. Mostly though I'm grateful for the time we had with him. You've left a huge hole in our lives Stormie, we miss you, we love you. Fly high beautiful boy xx
I know its hard i lost my tiny almost 2 months ago and its like ever since she is gone its been so blan i miss her soo much and i never got to say good bye she got took to the vet and didnt come home i wish u the best in ur recovery .
3 days ago I lost my beautiful boy, after he got struck by a car fight outside my house , and I have so many emotions anger heartbroken and guilty, guilty because I was at work when it happened and I feel if I was there maybe he might still be here, guilty because he ran off to my garden after it happened where he took his last breaths alone. How do I overcome these awful emotions. I still expect to see him curled up at the bottom of my bed at night. Or finishing of his sisters food. Or even just perched on top of our garden fence watching the world go by 😪
It's been 5 days. I have this gaping hole in my heart and it feels like I'll never recover from the pain I'm feeling. I keep going to do things and realising I don't need to anymore because he's not here, like looking out for him on the stairs when it's dark or making sure he's in the house at night before I lock the door. I'm trying to convince myself it was for the best because it was but it's so hard. I know it was time and he was in so much pain but I never got to say goodbye and I miss him so much.
Yesterday I lost my beautiful boy Jasper after 18 years, he had just celebrated his 18th birthday just before Halloween. He brought so much happiness and joy to my life. Whenever I felt down he would always be there giving me kisses and head boops. Having to take him to the vet and say my farewells where he went to sleep for the final time, was the hardest and most heartbreaking thing I have ever experienced. I have always looked out for him and gave him so much love every day of his life. I spent the day with him listening to his favourite relaxing bird videos and cuddling up to him telling him how much I loved him, and also thanking him for all the love and joy he gave me. He could not tell me how poorly he was getting so I had to make the decision so he would not suffer anymore. I will always and forever miss my beautiful boy. I’m sure he is playing in the catnip fields of cat heaven right now. Rest easy jasper.
Dear sox Its been nearly a month since we lost you (worse day of my life) I'll never forget you. My heart broke to pieces when you had to be put to sleep but at least your not suffering anymore Rest In peace sox you were wonderful and ill never forget you
I posted my recently-departed darling Honey on the Memory Wall, and on the loss of a furry friend, and especially now in these awful times, I have found these words very affecting. They are by the publisher Michael Joseph on the death of his cat Charles during WW II. "In the midst of a devastating war with all its suffering, the death of a cat may seem an unimportant matter. Those who are indifferent to animals or merely tolerate them will doubtless think so, but anyone who has intimately known and loved an animal and has been honoured with that animal's love and devotion will, I believe, agree with me that it is not easy to bear the loss. We must leave it at that."
I lost my beautiful girl in March and had to make the hardest decision to have her put to sleep, she was so loving and the most beautiful girl, anyone who's struggling I'm sending love your way x
Dear Molly, It's been three days since you died in my arms. I understood that I needed to let you go; you could not longer live comfortably, you had begun to refuse food and you were in increasing pain. But I still can't shake the image of you lying there after the sedative, not understanding what was going on. You were such a good cat friend to me; you were always there, always accepting, always purring. I hope you understand that I was rescuing you one last time, even if it didn't feel like it. I can see when I look through the photos of our 14 years together that I did give you a good life. I have countless photos of you relaxed, confident, happy sprawled out in the sun or rolled over on a comfortable chair. But I still feel I could have somehow given you a better death, even if it was just getting on top of your health conditions earlier, to improve the quality of your final months. I can see the decline so clearly in the photos now, but when I saw you every day it just wasn't as visible to me. I did the best I can and I hope you forgive me. I rescued you so many times: from the shelter, from injuries, from other cats, when you got lost. I was always there when you needed me, just like you were always there for me. I hope you can see that I was rescuing you from the cancer as well, even if it meant we had to say goodbye. I feel like a part of me has died. I miss you so much. Human x
Suk, I met you May 2009 when I was looking for a new companion...I was living alone and wow I didnt know at the time what a wonderful friend I'd found! You were a small brown tabby just recovering from a neutering operation and taken in by Cats protection after giving birth to 3 kittens in a shed. I took you home after some gentle persuasion you began to trust me. Soon enough you began to love lap cuddles and sitting in the garden in the sun. You never left my side. Soon we were a family of three and so happy together. You made us laugh every day. You loved us and we loved you. Sadly last night you crossed rainbow bridge and you no longer need us. We will never forget the bond we created together and the love and smiles we shared for 14 years. We love you and will always miss you our beautiful darling girl Xx
