Pretty Girl

Unfortunately, today meant saying goodbye to our beloved Pretty Girl. Our house and hearts are feeling a bit empty right now. I need a couple of days to get myself together. Thank you for all of your well wishes. I'll be back later this week. - SJ

Oh my gosh, I am so sorry :(
What a beautiful tortoise shell. You know, it's believed that tortoise shell cats bring good luck into a home. You were lucky to have her and I'm sure she will still be watching over your home in some way.

I'm so sorry, Sally Jane. I've never commented here before, but I know how hard it is to lose a pet and I wanted to tell you how sad I am to hear of your loss. She looks like she was a lovely cat.
Take care of yourself.

I've been through the same thing more than once so I can empathize. Losing a loved one is never easy so take your time to heal.

I'm really sorry for your loss. That must've been awful to return home from a fun NYC trip only to find a very sick cat and then to lose her :( Pets are truly an amazing part of life so I know what you're going through.

taylor said...

I am so sorry. I know just how you feel, we just had to put our cat down a few weeks ago. It's hard, especially when you were very close. I felt empty for so long, but eventually it's a happy feeling when I think of her instead of a lonely one.

Sammy said...

i'm so sorry for your loss. poor little sweetpea. :(
there's a little poem i like that helped me get through losing my cats a couple years ago:

Grieve not,
nor speak of me with tears
but laugh and talk of me
as if I were beside you...
I loved you so...
'twas Heaven here with you...

Ana said...

aww I'm so sorry.
Kittens are just lovely but after the pain goes away you will have tons of great memories.

GossipZ said...

I am so sorry for your loss.
I have lost a pet two years ago and I know how hard it is. At first I tried to deny that something bad happened to her, but when I realized it was really hard . I loved her so much.

joblessandjaded said...

so sorry. she looks exactly like my cat :(

WendyB said...

Oh, so sorry!

Ringo, have a banana! said...

I know just how you feel, it's so hard. I hope you're coping, stay strong. A dear friend is a hard thing to loose, even (or especially) a furry one.

My many, many sympathies.

I am so sorry. That is heartbreaking. What a lucky little girl to have been rescued by you - very lucky.

I think you know I run a trap-neuter-return group for feral cats on the side of my f/t animal welfare job, have fostered and adopted out probably 50 cats (and rescued quite a few that didn't make it) and have 5 of my own - so. She was very blessed to be with you and so loved.

I had to say goodbye to my 18 and 14 yr old cats both within 2 months of each other. The 14 year old was like a child and best friend to me. It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make but it was the best because it ended her suffering (she was dying of leukemia). This was in October and I can tell you time does indeed heal, but you will always feel a little sad and will always miss her.

I adopted a kitten a month later and it definitely helped me, but you can never replace a pet... just love another as a tribute to the ones you've had to say goodbye to.

It sounds to be like you gave Pretty Girl a wonderful life!
