Losing My Buddy


Recommended Posts

Thanks Custom.

We have had a few cats over the years but this guy is special. Great personality, friendly, vets love him. Unfortunately Max has severe allergies which I believe contributed to his current condition due to the meds for his allergies.

hate to hear you're going through this. He is a beautiful cat. I lost two of mine around Christmas 2020. Still miss 'em. You'd think with having 6 others I wouldn't have anything to miss

Amazing how 13 pounds can leave such a huge hole in your heart. Never gets easier, been here before. 

Two txab, tough. 

My favorite for years.

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.

Sorry to hear. :(  We have a tabby that is nowhere near a cat.  Doesn't get up on things, plays some, eats flies, which is fun to watch her do and is a lab girl 100%


When I met Susan she had a siamese.  He was something.  Came one one day and a bird got into the house through the chimney.  It was an old 1850's house.  The bird was dead in the hallway, but poop trails all along the walls from downstairs to up stairs.  Needless to say, Wiggy had a blast catching it.

The passing of a loved pet is a most difficult experience.  I am truly sorry, diyer2.    The one mantra I keep repeating at such times is, "Remember the good times".   It doesn't remove the pain but the happy memories will eventually overpower the sadness as your pet crosses the "Rainbow Bridge".  



The Rainbows Bridge Poem
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
