The worst part of having a pet......

<< < (5/6) > >>

Joe K:
Dear Mike & Sid,

My deepest condolences on the loss of Charlie.  In his honour, I offer the following:

A Catís Prayer

Although I am too proud to beg,
and may appear to be a very independent creature,
I ask for your loving care and attention.
I rely on you for my well-being much more than you may realize.
This I promise you, my benefactor, that I will not be a burden on you.
Nor will I demand more of you than you care to give.
I will be a quiet peaceful island of serenity for you to gaze upon;
a soft soothing body to caress,
and I shall purr with pleasure to rest your weary ears.
Since I am a gourmet who appreciates different taste sensations,
I pray you will give me a variety of nutritious foods and fresh water daily.
You know dear friend, how I love to go.
Allow me, I pray, a warm sheltered place
where I can rest peacefully and feel secure.
If I am wounded in battle or suffering from disease,
please tend me gently, and see that I am treated
by loving and competent hands.
Please protect me from the inhuman humans
who would hurt and torture me for their own amusement.
I am accustomed to your gentle touch and am not always suspicious
nor swift enough to avoid such malicious acts.
In my later years when my senses fail me
and my infirmities become too great to bear,
allow me the comfort and dignity that I desire for my closing days
and help me gently in my pain or passing.
Hear this prayer, my dear friend, my fate depends on you.

R.I.P. Charles T. Cat, you will be missed.

Heart wrenching. You had me in tears earlier during our texting  :(. My Condolences.

So sorry to hear about this, Mike. It's never easy, but the hardest part is over. It just comes back from time to time, but it gets easier. I heard, and sometimes saw out of the corner of my eye, both my cats for a few weeks after they passed.


Thanks again all.  Your words help.  Joe -- that was beautiful!!

Here is a picture of my precious Charlie.......


sorry, no words.
just tears.
