This is really hard writing this today, Sable passed a week ago (08/10/21) and it's still quite raw. She was a beautiful girl (of course, I'm going to say that..) and I miss her very much. She was loving, naughty and happy and I like to think she had a good life with me, especially as she was 23 yrs old. The hardest part is the greetings and purring that I'm missing, when I get up in the morning and home in the evening and I know the pain will get easier as time passes so I'm going to remember the good things about her with her sister Leilu who died at 21....they're together again and causing mayhem in heaven......for everyone that's lost a loved one, it makes no different if animal or human the pain is real and it will make us stronger......eventually. Thank you for letting me express my grief and my heart goes out to everyone in the same position....remember the good things!!
to anyone who has lost a cat recently we lost our beloved rescue cat three weeks ago due to natural causes. to say we miss her is an understatement, we are utterly broken hearted. to any one out there who has gone through this we can say that although the pain is intense it shows how much you and your cat loved each other. we found great comfort from the poem the rainbow bridge and talking to other people. never feel ashamed or silly feeling how you do - your cat was one of the family. we are absolutely broken at losing Jess but we remember her lovely sweet ways. lots of love to you all
My gorgeous boy, I miss you so much. I thought you would be with us for years, that you would be with us when the kids left home and we would be there for you as you got older. I can't believe you are gone at age 2. You gave us so much joy and peace, the house doesn't feel the same without you. I'm so sorry I didn't protect you better and that you got hurt. I wish you were at home, sleeping on our bed, safe and sound. We all loved you so much and I'm finding it so hard to accept you are gone. I want so desperately to turn back time and change things so you could be here with us. I want so desperately to see your little face peering up at me or to have you jump on me at 6:00 in the morning, demanding your breakfast. I want you to be here, pushing your face into mine as I prepared your food and greeting me as I came home from work. I miss the way you would gently tap me with your paw when you wanted my attention. I wanted to watch you grow and to see how your character developed. I miss your feistiness. I love you, my beautiful Kenco. You meant the world to all of us. We all miss you terribly. But you are at peace and you died comfortably, with the people who loved you most. I just wish I knew how to say goodbye. All I can say is that I love you.
i had to say goodbye to my loyal and trusted companion Phoebe on 13th September. She was 18 years old and her tired body could no longer cope. The vet visited us at home and we helped Phoebe on her journey to the Rainbow Bridge, to be reunited with her mother Robyn. I adopted Robyn and Phoebe from my local Cats Protection centre in February 2006. On the day that I said goodbye to Phoebe, I visited the website of my local Cats Protection centre. I'm not sure what made me want to do this. I thought that seeing the cats who would soon have a new and loving forever home would lift my spirits. When I saw the photos and video of Nala, I knew immediately that I wanted to welcome her into my home and my family. I met Nala at the centre and brought her to her new home four days later. She has settled in so well. Thank you to to all the workers at Cats Protection for your work and thank you Phoebe for telling me from the Rainbow Bridge, that my life would be empty without a feline companion and for guiding me to Nala. The rainbow came to me, just as I thought it would.
two days ago, my sweetheart was hit by a car. we saw it hours later on our cctv camera. he ran away and limped to our backyard and we didnt find him until hours later. my darling looked the same as he always did, but there was blood and he was stiff and cold. i miss my baby so much. he was so little and he didnt deserve any of this. he was such a good boy. such an innocent creature. so many things could have happened to prevent this, and yet none of them did. my tofu could have stayed still, he could have run the other way, i could have gone outside, my dad could have decided to leave the house a little earlier or a little later, my mom could have decided not to make my dad go out, so many things. and yet, everything happened like it did and now my baby is gone. i miss him. he was so sweet. everything feels so unreal. i want time to mourn but i still have school and i barely have any time. i would do anything to bring my boy back. i wish it was me instead. ive done bad things, i deserve this way more than he did. he was so sweet and loving and hed never hurt anyone. i miss him. i remember how he smells like, how he felt, how he sounded, and im scared the memories of him will fade as years pass. did i take my darling for granted? i never thought he'd be leaving me this soon. i miss him so much. my baby was the best. i feel like im nothing without my handsome boy. i'd do anything to get him back.
My beautiful baby girl gained her angel wings on 21st September 2021 and the grief is so much I feel like I will never be the same. My heart is shattered. The vet found a huge lymphoma that had been growing in her stomach and the guilt I feel for not realising sooner that she was so unwell is unbearable. The diagnosis was such a shock and then to be followed with the news that nothing could be done and I had to let her go that she was in so much pain but she hid it so well. She had lost weight very quickly and gone off her food but I still didn't think it would be that serious. I feel like I failed her and she was my spirit animal. Iv had loads of cats in my life but this one was extra special. She left a huge hole in my heart and all I can think is I just want to go with her. Raisia, I still can't believe you have gone. You will forever be my special bububs my baby girl and I'm so so sorry. I hope you are at peace and you forgive me for not realising the pain you must have been in. I love you so much always and forever 💛 mummy xxx
When I was living alone some 17 years ago , a beautiful little kitten came into my life needing a home . This kitten definitely chose me as her owner. I recall the first couple of weeks deciding what to name her . Watching her adorable mischievous ways there was one name that stuck. Mischief was the most adorable, affectionate and loving being in my life. Unconditional love and such a strong bond - a bond I’ll never forget being made when she stood at the top of the stairs looking directly up to me - that moment - I’ll never forget and wish I was back there to relive it. Having a difficult and demanding job which also meant I’d come home in the early hours of mornings , mischief made sure I never open the door to an empty home. Always there waiting to give affection and thrilled that I was back home with her. Mischief was there in the highs and lows of my life, sharing good times and comforting me in the bad. My rock , my angel. Today , having had to rush my little sweetheart to the vets with breathing problems, I soon learnt that she had developed feline leukaemia and possibly had a tumour on her chest . Given her age and quickening frailty- the most kindest yet hardest show of love toward her was to let her go. Coming from a job that involved making life changing and life saving decisions for others - this was the most hardest and hurtful decision I had to make in my life. I kissed her beautiful head as she passed away. I am now left with a massive hole in my life. Mischief, I will always love you xxx
The shock of losing you so quickly on Saturday is so raw, it was comforting to read other stories, we are all going through it. I come home from shopping and you are not there to poke your little head into the bags, to have our afternoon nap together. You brought me back to life last year and made it worth living........pure joy.......thank you for all that and more, you have made me a"cat lady" forever, and hope to care for another rescue cat that needs tlc. You are worth every tear Magic and will never ever forget you. God Bless you, and thanks again for helping me live again xxx
I’m so choked & haven’t wept like this for many years. We had to make the difficult choice to have our quirky, highly intelligent, loving siamese Zoe euthanised today. She’d had blood tests indicating chronic health issues & was ‘gravely ill’. She was sprightly up until a few days ago; then we saw a dramatic decline. It was heartbreaking. She shrunk to skin and bones, fur all manly & was riddled with lots of black gunk on her eyes and mouth. A once beautiful cat reduced to this. I stroked my girl over and over and apologised for what was to happen. I hope she’s gone to a better place and isn’t suffering. I’m totally and utterly heart broken. We loved her so much.
My partner and I adopted Monty when he was about 10, and from the first meeting it was obvious he was special. Very clever and extremely social, but always on his terms. Monty would always ackwowledge you when you entered a room and i felt 'seen' by him, if that makes sense. Over the years a bond formed far greater than i have ever had with another living thing. We understood each other and performed our daily routines in heart warming harmony. He got his nickname of 'Baby Monty' because we discovered he liked me to picki him up and hold him on his back like a baby. He would go floppy and purr. Then snuggle the back of his head into my arms and chest while we danced about to the radio. He trusted me completely and in return i loved him truly. Monty wanted to be included in everything, and the seemingly infinite number of different meaows he would use to communicate filled up our world. My heart feels broken, but thats the price for loving something this much.
My beautiful cat died on 21st September 2021. It was so unexpected and I didn't see it coming. I loved her with my whole heart and I like to think she loved me too. She was my first cat, I've only previously had dogs and being a cat owner is so different. Cleo was clever, bossy, sassy, affectionate and a true best friend. I'm at a true loss without her. She gave me comfort and showed me love at a time when I needed it most. At a time where the only reason I got up in the morning was to give her food and water. I know she's at peace now but I wish I could go back 6 months and cuddle her once more. I promised her we'd meet again and one day we will but for now, I have to learn to live with the hole she left in my heart. Until we meet again Cleo, I'll never forget you and the love you showed me.
We lost our fur baby on 17 September 2021. Him and my other cat live indoors but, they also like to play outdoors and explore. He went missing that night, we went outside to search for him but he was nowhere to be found. The next day our neigbour said that they saw him dead near a container. He was poisoned and died immediately. My heart breaks every day, there is massive hole in my heart. My other cat is mourning the loss of his best friend and I am always in expectation of his return to our house. He changed mine and the life of our family, he is missed so much everyday. My angel, rest in peace.
Sometimes we feel so sad because nobody understands our loss. I have now read all your messages and have found comfort in that. My darling was also hit by a car and she was a feisty lass that would have lived much longer. Her tail had to be amputated and we thought we would give her every chance. She was so incontinent and that was not her personality and so undignified for her so we had to make that decision. So last friday she went to cat heaven to join all her lovely friends. I am so sad - I miss her jumping on my bed and having cuddles. No doubt we all feel like that.At least we can grieve together. Take care and best wishes to all.
I loved you from the moment I saw you 13 years ago! Dylan you were such an amazing, loving and gentle cat and loved to follow me round the house even wanting to spoon me in bed. Sadly you were suddenly taken from us on Saturday and I think the hardest thing is how sudden it was. I left in the morning after feeding you and returned a few hours later, at which point you were very poorly and I rushed you to the vets. They told us you had a severe heart murmer and a blood clot and the kindest thing would be to let you slip away gently. I didn't want you to suffer or be in any pain, you didn't deserve that. I was there until the end stroking you and talking to you. I feel an emptiness in my heart and the house feels too quiet without you. Your sister Jasmine has been very clingy since you left us to go to the rainbow bridge. I love you always and miss you every day, I just hope with time this pain eases. Thank you for being such a beautiful and wonderful kitty.
I lost my beautiful Pixie on the 30th of August 2021 she was only one. We received a devastating call from the vets to say that she had been hit by a car. A kind passer by took her to our local vets, we managed to track him down, he had lost a cat in the same tragic way. I’m absolutely crushed and devastated, I’m still very worried for her brother Merlin. Pixie was the most beautiful Mackerel Tabby with perfect markings, she was so sweet, friendly and playful. She is the only cat I’ve ever known that like to play fetch and catch, she used to take her ball to my husband to play, it was so sweet. She used to roll in front of our feet for fuss and cuddles, it breaks my heart that this will never happen again! Pixie loved being outdoors, she was always climbing tree’s and she roamed a lot further than we could ever have imagined. I’ve started putting a memory box together, it’s only been a week and pain is still very raw. The love for her wonderful brother Merlin is comforting me, and I have so many happy memories of little Pixie, she was so loved and cared for. RIP little angle, I will miss you forever.
