catnip forever!

....tough week behind me...our old lady kitty (she always looked like a young kitten according to many visitors) passed away on Sunday afternoon(19 years old)...while I was petting her and telling her it was okay...oh so tough...those four legged furries have us under their spell and it's so hard to see them go...what a void...a tulip tribute to her and we'll definitely miss her terribly.. already do... :(

I wish words could bring her back to you ~ and bring her back nice and healthy. The pain from the loss of our dear little friends is at times unbearable. I hope you will mostly remember the joy she brought you and that the pain of loss eases soon.

I'm very sorry about your cat: having been through the loss of an old cat twice in the past year, I empathize ... I was just looking at photos of my departed cats earlier today, still missing them too.

So sorry to hear about your cat. Animals are such a wonderful part of the family. May your memories comfort you. Surely she would have loved to sniff these wonderful tulips. A very sweet tribute to a dear companion.

My deepest condolences to you...remember her and all the love she brought to your house.
You should feel honored that she chose you ...as I always feel that a cat ,,in a way,,, chooses us.
I lost my dear cat on Christmas Day in 2005 and still can´t look at his fotos. You were so lucky to have her in your life for 19 years...you were blessed. My thoughts are with you. She would love your tulips too.

Oh, Annelein, I missed this. I'm so sorry about your cat! 19 years--wow! That's a cat who lived a good, long life--must have been well cared for and loved. I suppose you have to remember that. Lovely tribute.
