Missing the furball...
« on: June 18, 2017, 06:33:06 AM »
He was a gorgeous, huge, tomcat who had been with us through thick and thin for years. He protected our garden from other cats and was very popular with the neighbours, who he would visit (and demand food from) on a regular basis.

They've finally sent the proof for his headstone through, and it brings it all back. It may sound odd to people who don't own pets, but it feels like we lost a family member. Putting a stone in the backyard for him seems like the least we can do. It's just not the same without him, even though it has been a year.

Oh Lyndish, my sympathy dear friend.  I do understand.  I hurt because I have loved ones (pets) that I had to leave in other states and it hurts so bad.  I'm glad your furbaby is there...  Big hugs dear...

My precious, beautiful, kind, fluffy, and handsome kitty, Legolas passed away this past Monday morning and my heart is forever broken.  :( My daughter and I had to put him to sleep due to heart disease and blood clots in both legs. His sister, Tiggy as well as Angel and Bella are definitely missing him too but this morning they have finally started to eat.

So sorry Neale about your little kitty. I know it must be hard and I know the others do miss him! Glad to hear they have started eating again. How old was he? It's so hard to lose one of our furbabies, they are like family to us.

Thank you....it was so unexpected which makes it so hard...my daughter and I went to a store today so I could pick up a new pink crystal angel necklace and stone..the kitties are back to not really eating...hate that...but I'm going to cleanse the house tonight to help get rid of the sadness...the house just seems so empty without him...but what's kind of good is that he was here for a month with Lauren at home and a month before she has to leave...I think my son is slowly dealing with it but his situation is keeping his mind very busy. Right now, I'm not going to do anything about selling my house. I just want to enjoy August with my daughter before she leaves and I have to go back to work a few days after she leaves...I just want to hug my Lego again..one more time.. :(

To nvgt16 (and all others) who have lost a furbaby, I do feel for  you. It is just so sad to to lose a pet, especially if it is one you have had a long time. I'm glad your daughter got to spend time with him. Not sure about  your son....is he living far from home?


I hope your other kitties have started back eating and don't grieve to long. You wouldn't think it would mean so much to the other pets in the house and it may not for some but a lot go through a grieving process just like humans when your 'friends' pass.


Take care and do enjoy your daughters visit.

Hi and thanks..can't believe my Lego has been gone a week now. My other 3 kitties went to a new vet in town this morning and my younger two, Angel and Bella are doing fine but Lego's sister, Tiggy, does have heart issues... She has heart arrhythmia.  :(  Next Monday she is going back for more tests including an ultrasound...I don't want to lose her. It's been a challenging week with some family issues tied into my daughter's bridal celebrations this past week. My kitties eating has been off and on. I'm trying out better kitty food and all 3 ate their entire meal up!! My son is living out in Utah...and he deals with issues differently because he has Aspergers. He has also just started to communicate with us since he seemed to disappear for two years as he was trying to get his life in order..but so glad that he is back! :13:  My youngest kitty seemed to know that something was wrong with her big brother because she had started to hide from us about a week before he passed. Sometimes she still looks sad with her head hanging down but she's getting better. Tiggy cries still quite more than she usually does but as usual, I'm always there for her! It will take time. I should be getting his ashes this week so that will be a new experience but I can't wait to have him back!

Lyndish, my heart goes out to you.  We had "Puff" for 23 years and she was part of the family.  We cried and cried when she passed.  The neighbors cried with us.  Please don't wait too long before you get another kitten.  They bring such joy.
