My beautiful little Sable. I love you so very much, our
lives surrounded each other. I am experiencing such horrible
grief at your loss. I miss you so much. Your suffering
was so terrible to watch, I could not stand it. I tried so
very hard to make you comfortable. I am so very sorry for
bringing you to places that I thought would help you & help us
to stay together. Instead, they only hurt you. I could
not stand watching that. I was glad that you were at
home. Seeing you suffer so much in those last hours of your
life is such a painful memory for me. This house is no
longer a home without you. It was our home that we shared
together. These last two days, I wake up hoping this is just
a bad dream & that you will be in your little bed waiting for
me. I will love you forever my sweet Angel.

My sweet little Sadie,
I found you at the shelter, hiding in the furthest corner of your
cage, afraid and shaking, you had been there way too long, nobody
wanted to adopt a 5 yr old cat.
I knew I had to bring you home. It took a long time for you to
trust me and feel like one of the family, you had stomach problems
and I can not count how many messes I cleaned up, but when you
looked at me with your big shiny eyes and cuddled every night on
my lap, purring... all was forgotten.
Who could imagine that what it looked like an UTI, easy fix with
antibiotics, turned out to be a much worse finding, at 15 and with
no real cure, just prolong the inevitable, I was not going to make
you suffer. You were starting to show signs of "the end is
coming", although twice you came back from the start of the
Rainbow Bridge, this was the time to let you cross it.
I took you to be helped and I brought you back no longer living,
the hardest decision and pain to go through.
I will forever miss you, my sweet girl, I hope I gave you some
years of love happiness, as I do not know if you had any before I
I know you met Abba and Phoebe and you are happy with them now,
till we can all reunite.
With all my love, your human mom, Maria

To our beloved Sadie Jane, best friend and loyal companion,
You were a member of a family who loved you so much. You gave each
one of us comfort and unconditional love. You added so much to our
home and added enjoyment to everything we did: Watching you sit on
the porch enjoying the sun, fresh air and watching the birds,
seeing you prance on the lawn, opening Christmas presents, and
knowing just when one of us needed you by our side. Words cannot
describe how much we miss you as there is an empty space in our
lives. You remain in our hearts forever good girl.

You have been our Best Boy. I do not even have the words to write
how much we miss your earthly presence. You were always one of a
kind. Like no other. We have been humbled by the out pouring of
love from this community since the news of your death has been
The love you gave is only exceeded by love that continues to give.
Our hearts overflow with all the joy, happy times, laughter and
special memories you blessed us with. I was reminded last week
that with great love, comes great sorrow. I would not trade
anything for our love and time with you. It would seem there is
not a moment that we are not thinking of you.
We cannot wait until we see you again. Fly free Scooter- With all

There are no words that can express how much you are loved and how
so very much more you are missed. Thank you so much for 9

Dear Sophie, You have been our angel and fur kid for the last 12
years. The unconditional love you gave on a daily basis was
beautiful. We miss cuddling each morning, brushing you and hearing
your soothing purr, curling up in the afternoon and evening to
watch tv or a movie, rubbing your stomach as you lay on your back,
watching you lay in the top of the cat condo with your paw hanging
over...It seems like nothing will ever be the same again. We know
you are no longer feeling pain and are chasing butterflies. We
love you sweet face and miss you so much...until we meet again...
you are always in our hearts...M & D
Sookie you were the best thing that ever happened to us. You had
so much love for us. I will never ever forgive myself for getting
you spayed. You didn't want to go and I shouldn't have taken you
because you would still be here sitting with me on the couch. I am
going to miss our walks at the park every weekend and playing in
the back yard. I can't even look at the rooms you used to lay in.
I can't sleep without you next to me. I don't know why God took
you away from me. Please watch over us and please give us a sign
that you forgive us. Please come back to us reincarnated. My heart
hurts so much. I love you so much Sookie words cannot express how
much my heart aches for you. I hope you wait for me at the rainbow
bridge so we can play together again one day.
Sophie, May 2009

You and 7 siblings were dumped off outside a shelter in Toledo,
Ohio. I saw your picture on Petfinder. You were with
us 8 short years and we shared so many good times and traveled
with us everywhere. You were afraid of lightning and thunder and
strangers and sometimes the wind. You weren't a "barker",
but you told us when someone was at the door or in our yard.
You had the sweetest face and loving eyes. Liver cancer
finally made you so sick and we had to keep you from suffering but
it was such a hard decision. But I knew you were ready by the sad
look in your eyes. Life is so sad without you. Memories are
everywhere. We hope we see you in heaven. ❤

What can I say about this tiny girl? When we first adopted
you, you were so tiny and we couldn't figure out why. Come
to find out, you needed a major surgery which we promptly got you
and then you were so thankful, you jumped in my bed all the time
and sat by me. Your fur was more like rabbit fur, so
silky. You had the sweetest personality and gave me plenty
of kisses. I think of you often and I miss you so
much. I can still see you looking at me in wonderment.
I will see you again some day and I want to hold you close to me
again. Love, Mom, dad, Heather, Faith and fur bros and

My sweet, affectionate, handsome Prince Charming, I miss you so
much. My heart is broken without you here. When you were diagnosed
with Congestive Heart Failure in March of 2016, I thought for sure
we could lessen the symptoms with medicines. You were so brave to
take all of your medicines for so long. You were so
complacent allowing all those blood tests, x-rays, and ultrasounds
every few months; and in October 2017, you successfully went
through the chest-tap procedure to remove fluids from your lungs.
I was so sad that the relief did not last very long, and we
planned to have another one done after the new year. I am so sorry
I did not take you until January 26th, and I am so sorry that I
did take you, because maybe if I didn't, you would still be next
I loved so much how you followed me around the house. I adored
your meow, how you chirped and trilled. I loved our morning
snuggle time, and how soft your hair was. How you would pat my
face with your paws, and if I talked too much you would put your
paw on my mouth. You made me laugh all of the time. You were such
You always greeted me at the door, so excited for me to come home.
In the last week of your life, you stopped our morning snuggles,
and the greetings upon entry - I think I knew the end was coming,
I just had no idea it would be THAT soon. I did not want to admit
you were as sick as you were.
I am so sorry that you suffered, that you couldn't get oxygen into
your lungs, I hate knowing you felt any pain at all, and I am so
sad that you didn't accept the oxygen mask or feel relief in the
oxygen tank at the animal hospital. It broke my heart to
watch you struggle to breathe. I hate that I took you there and it
caused you to panic. Your beautiful enlarged heart could not
handle the stress of going back to the doctor's - I wish I
realized that you weren't strong enough to go through the
chest-tap procedure again.
I am so sorry I took you. I promise you, I took you there to get
comfort, to relieve your pain, and to bring you back home feeling
better. I never imagined or wanted you not to come home with me.
The 10 years, 09 months, 02 days we had together were the best
years of my life. You are a great cat, you were the best cat, so
friendly, so loving, and I hope I did right by you. You deserved a
great life, I hope I gave you that.
I miss you every day, and I know I always will.
I love you Stray Cat - I am sorry I did not name you Prince
Charming - but you know that you were my Prince Charming,
regardless. Love you so much.
There was never a moment I wasn't loved by you. There never was a
moment I didn't love you.
Looking forward to seeing you in Heaven, my handsome and funny
