I just lost my tuxedo kitty. He was almost 20 yrs old. He past away on Nov 20 2011. I grew up with him. He knew me and I knew him. He wasn't vocal but anytime I was sad or crying he would put a paw on each side of my neck and nudge me with his head. He always answered to his name. He would sleep with me at night. The best part was he would paw at the cover so I would raise it up for him to be under the blanket too. He was the best cat ever and I am only posting this as a way that maybe he will know how much he is still loved and he is terribly missed. I would do anything to see him one last time. RIP Lucky. You my best friend, will forever be with me!

Your feelings are shared

I lost my cat Milo on Nov 15, 2011 after 20 years of loving friendship. He was an all white short hair. He will be missed and I will miss spoiling him each and everyday. Until we all meet our friends again our memories will keep us comforted as to what awaits at our reuniting.

I too am so sorry for your loss. I like Claudia's words very much and also send a cyber hug to each of you. I lost my mom this month, and a week later my much loved Dalmatian, Diggitty. (He is in the picture with my white cat Merlin) I feel your pain and my thoughts and prayers are with you. When you feel you are able, rescue a kitty from the pound, giving another kitty a chance for a happy life and your heart a place to put the love you have to give. I didn't want to replace Diggitty until I could get another 'Him'. But the choice was taken out of my hands when my daughter begged me to take a puppy who's owner is marrying a military man and could not take it with her. We called Diggitty Diggy Boo, and my mom's name was Joan. My new lab puppy is now JoJo Boo, a constant and loving tribute to those I loved so dearly.

A Pet Poem In Time Of Sorrow
by: Anonymous

By the edge of a woods, at the foot of a hill,

Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still.

Where the friends of man and woman do run,

When their time on earth is over and done.

For here, between this world and the next,

Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest.

On this golden land, they wait and they play,

Till the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,

For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.

Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,

Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

They romp through the grass, without even a care,

Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.

All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,

Then all of a sudden, one breaks from the pack.

For just at that instant, their eyes have met;

Together again, both person and pet.

So they run to each other, these friends from long past,

The time of their parting is over at last.

The sadness they felt while they were apart,

Has turned into joy once more in each heart.

They embrace with a love that will last forever,

And then, side-by-side, they cross over… together.

Tuxedo Cat

Hello Jennifer,
I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Mine passed away two weeks ago. We were together for 17 yrs but at the time we took him in, the vet estimated his age as 4 or 5. He was a proud aristocrat and only toward the end he would demand attention from me. I still cannot see his photos without crying. I wish I could hold him one more time; I wish I could rub his whiskers and feel him pressing back. Every morning when I wake up, I call to him and say, Fatso where are you? Can you come to me in a dream and let me know you are OK. Fatso, please give me a sign. Before the end, I told him to come and get me when my time comes.

I'm sad to hear about Lucky's passing. Even though I didn't know him, I know how hard it is to lose a beloved companion.

I'm sending love and light your way. And a big virtual hug.
