I love you,like I have never loved another cat,you sensed when I had a heavy heart,tried to comfort me,we had our trials and problems,but they only made you more special.
Although you were very sick and I was crying,crying because I knew what I had to do,you meowed and crawled up on my lap,trying to comfort me.
Well,I need you now,my heart is broken...but you are not here anymore.
I'll love you forever,I will never forget you,my little Tabby-boy

Chico I am so very sorry for the loss of your precious Rocky! I am a mess again and it just brings everything back so much!

I am sure Bomber, Snowball and many other kitties were there to welcome him across! You will see your beautiful boy again that I am sure!

It hurts so much I know!! We are here for you mf! I know how hard it is to watch them deteriorate right in front of you.

Run free to the bridge sweet Rocky!!

Chico - You know the tears are flowing for Rocky and for you mf. :grouphug:
I knew you had made the decision. I know how hard the decision is. Peace be with you my friend. You know where I am if you want a hug.
:candle: :rip: sweet sweet Rocky :candle: You will be missed so much.


The Last Battle

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this -- the last battle -- can't be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.

No amount of tears or pain would make me stop having pets in my life. They are such pure hearts and souls... Chico, it will hurt always, but with time, you will be able to remember and smile, rather than cry... and then there will still be times that you will cry for him.. Its normal, he was such a special boy... Each one of our furkids are special and hold a place in our hearts...

:candle: Tabby-Boy Rocky :candle:

May I Go?

May I go now?
Do you think the time is right?
May I say goodbye to pain filled days
and endless lonely nights?

I've lived my life and done my best,
an example tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond
and set my spirit free?

I didn't want to go at first,
I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now
to a warm and loving light.

I want to go. I really do.
It's difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can
to live just one more day.

To give you time to care for me
and share your love and fears.
I know you're sad and afraid,
because I see your tears.

I'll not be far, I promise that,
and hope you'll always know
that my spirit will be close to you
wherever you may go.

Thank you so for loving me.
You know I love you, too.
That's why it's hard to say goodbye
and end this life with you.

So hold me now just one more time
and let me hear you say,
because you care so much for me,
you'll let me go today.

Your Pets In Heaven
by Ken D. Conover

To have loved and then said farewell, is better than to have never loved at all.
For all of the times that you have stooped and touched my head, fed me my favorite treat and returned the love that I so unconditionally gave to you.
For the care that you gave to me so unselfishly.
For all of these things I am grateful and thankful.

I ask that you not grieve for the loss, but rejoice in the fact that we lived, loved and touched each others lives. My life was fuller because you were there, not as a master/owner, but as my FRIEND.

Today I am as I was in my youth. The grass is always green, butterflies flit among the flowers and the Sun shines gently down upon all of God's creatures.
I can run, jump, play and do all of the things that I did in my youth. There is no sickness, no aching joints and no regrets and no aging.

We await the arrival of our lifelong companions and know that togetherness is forever.
You live in our hearts as we do in yours. Companions such as you are so rare and unique.
Don't hold the love that you have within yourself. Give it to another like me and then I will live forever. For love never really dies, and you are loved and missed as surely as we are.

Your Pets In Heaven

Be at peace MF...:grouphug:

My heart aches for you :grouphug::candle::angel2::cat:

As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
I saw a wonderous image then of a place that's trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.

I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful--lush and green and wide!
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.

I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright Glow pierced the night.
'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.

For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.

cpietra,I am ok,but still burst out in tears at times,he had such a huge presence in my life,understood when I was sad or sick.

I have a small pic of him in my heart-locket.
I have 5 cats buried in my back-yard,but somehow I could not do that to Rocky,I'll get him home this week and he'll have a special spot in my bed-room.
I'll more than likely be talking to him...but then I am a bit weird:cat:

AG,Chico actually seems to resent Vinnie more than before,but there is no fighting,Chico just hisses at Vinnie,I wish they'd become friends.
Rocky was kind of the alpha-cat,was the big brother to both of them.
I wish I knew what they are thinking,if they miss him:confused:I know,I always will..

Chico, I think we all have people like that in our lives. They just don't understand. But I know you as I do, have wonderful and supportive family and friends who know how much your boy meant to you.

Vinnie and Chico likely realize something is going on. Hopefully they will become friends in time.
