“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened. ”
~Anatole France

I had forgotten how heart breaking it is to lose a pet. We’ve had Sloopy for ages, and it felt like she would always be with us. Our little shadow, following us around, looking for a warm lap, waiting for dinner.

It will not be the same here without her. She will be very missed.

    So sorry, Regina. What a beautiful kitty. Our Smokey is just a bit older than Sloopy. Sigh. I’m going to go hug her extra tight…

    So sorry to hear of your loss. I lost my cat last year – she was born in 1992 – about the same age as Sloopy and I know how you feel. One day you will see her again at the foot of rainbow bridge.

    I am so sorry for your loss. She was a beautiful girl! I never had a pet but life had other plans for me. In the middle of May a pretty black cat had babies in my yard and now I am the proud owner of the mom and her 4 kittens. Two are black and two are gray. We are also fostering 3 beautiful black kittens and they are just my world. I adore all of them. I do not know how I am going to place them for adoption. I cannot imagine the pain of losing a precious pet.

  15. Oh Regina, so sorry for your loss… It is never easy… I will be thinking of your family…

    I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your kitty. Its so very hard to lose a pet, they do become so much a part of our lives. She was very pretty, and I’m sure that she knew just how much she was loved.

    I’m so sorry to read about the loss of your beloved family member and know just how hard it is. Just one month ago we lost our Maltese of 15.5 years. I have been overwhelmingly sad and know you must be, too. Hugs to you and your family.

  18. What a lucky kitty to have you as her mama! I tear up looking/reading that. I know how hard it can be. Big Hugs!
