Gratitude

eTomsCollar

On a Spring morning many years ago, when I was taking out the trash, I saw a tiny kitten with enormous paws in our front yard. I called to him, and he approached close enough for me to scoop him up.
When my husband Rick got home from work that night, I said, “Look what I found”.
Rick said, “I think that’s our kitten”.

And we lived happily ever after until last week.

We feel so fortunate that we found each other. I’m also grateful for your understanding and expressions of sympathy. They have been enormously comforting.

Thank you.
Maggie

What a darling little baby he was. I’m so glad you both had each other for so long, though it’s never long enough. Lots of hugs and purrs.

We know how hard it is to lose a furbaby. Like Fuzzy Tales said…the time together never seems long enough. Purrs…..

It’s never, ever long enough, is it? Sending you love, purrs and prayers as you miss your special and beloved Tommie.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Purrs of healing and comfort at this very difficult time.

How Tommie arrived out of the blue was kismet and meant to be. His exit was no less meaningful. Sending continued healing purrs during your journey. You are not alone! xoxox

The sight of Tommie’s empty collar took the breath out of me. At the same time my eyes filled with tears and chills went through. Impossible to imagine he’s gone. Loving so much gives enormously, and the cost, when the bill comes due, is great.

It really hurts when we lose one. 🙁

Tommie was a beautiful kitty. He certainly grew into his paws! So very poignant to see his collar! Sending gentle purrs xx

That’s much the way TW found Nicky, her heart cat. So sorry you had to lose Tommie. He’s probable playing with Nicky now.
