Mesha
1/7/2009 - 9/17/2020Mesha loved everybody. As long as you were a human you were welcome in Mesha's world. If uou were an animal other than the ones that lived on our property, they were not welcome. Mesha took cate of 5 cats and 6 chickens that were part of her pack. We have 5 grandchildren and they were all hers. Our youngest granddaughter dressed Mesha in her Halloween hair and sang to her this past Halloween. She was the most loving and caring animal I have ever had. She is deeply missed by all.Cheryl WallSaint Augustine, FloridaSeptember 19, 2020
Daisy
10/11/2011 - 9/10/2020Daisy, we miss you every day. You were our shy little girl who almost no one got to know except us, and we had to work to get you to trust us, but how rewarding it was when you finally did! You were my funny little girl who sometimes let herself play and be kittenish, even as you grew older; it was somehow more fun and exciting when we caught you chasing your tail or racing around the house with zoomies or “killing” ponytail holders and bragging proudly about your catch, because so were so reserved normally. We and your sisters miss you dearly and know we’ll see you again on the other side. Save us a spot on the couch!Jodie HamiltonSaint Augustine, FloridaSeptember 16, 2020
Boots
1/11/2007 - 8/6/2020Boots was a sensitive little soul and a true friend.Jacqui MathisSt. Augustine, FloridaAugust 13, 2020
Maggie Mae
8/1/2005 - 6/23/2020Maggie Mae was in my life for 15 years. She was my first puppy. I am so happy I had the chance to love her for so long. Maggie Mae honestly is the reason why I kept going when I was dealing with depression. I knew I had to keep going for her. She was with me through some sad times but also there were so, so many happy times!
One of my favorite memories is just us snuggling on the couch together her sleeping either in front of me or snuggled behind my legs. I also remember waking up to her and she was completely up against my back and I would roll over and she would put her head on my neck. It was the best way to wake up. As a puppy she loved to go to the dog park and would just run and run. That is how I picture her now over the rainbow bridge just running and running. After Maggie would eat her food she would always go to the carpet and roll around on her back and be her frisky self. Her last year of her life she was not able to do that due to her arthritis in her hips. I know she is rolling around on her back now so happy. She also loved her grandma who helped take care of her when I was at work.

Making the decision to help her transition was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. But she loved me for so long and did so much for me I had to help her. She was in pain and did not have a quality of life. Maggie Mae did what she was supposed to do, she loved me and got me to a place in my life where I am doing so much better. She knew I was good so she could go.
I was so lucky in that I got to plan how she passed. I was able to take amazing pictures of her and I in the days leading up. I was able to hang up her puppy pictures and create a place in my home where she would be comfortable and not scared. The day I said goodbye she had a breakfast sandwich and ice cream. She also had bacon, hamburger, and chicken. While she was being given medicine, I got to read her a letter telling her how much I loved her. I got to hold her as she passed so peacefully.
The grief I felt was like no other. But the grief was so big because the love so, so big.
Dr. Kali was so amazing. She was full of love and so caring that I knew my Maggie was in good hands. Dr. Kali has the biggest heart and even though the day was so hard her presence of caring made it so much more peaceful. I will never forget her and how wonderful she was!!

Max Pilny
7/7/2007 - 7/31/2020How do you memorialize an affectionate, loving, smart, gentle giant? My husband and I housesat a beautiful labradoodle named Lenny and said that if we could ever find a dog like that, we would open our home up to him. And, then Max appeared. His beautiful amber eyes could melt you and that's exactly what he did! He was gentle, obedient and mannerly. However, we also found him to be a "Goldilocks" when it came to his bed! Every pillow off every bed and sofa, were thrown on the floor and, oh, how he loved to eat the starfish out of my shell bowls! Each time we left our home, we had to rearrange the stools on the furniture and put my shell bowls on top of the refrigerator. But, Max got past that and soon settled into his big, new comfortable bed that we bought him. Did I say settle? He actually "cathunked" his 110 pound body on to the floor. I personally know. being an attentive "mother" and listening for him to go to bed. Max roamed a lot, watching and guarding. Our little guy, Elvis, misses him terribly, too, and has become very clingy since Max's passing. Our entire household is "raw" right now and we miss his deep bark and head butt greetings at the door. We know that Max is in heaven, roaming the hills, for if God loves whom we love, then Max is there waiting for us. See you on the other side, our beloved boy! We miss you and love you!Linda BrandtSt. Augustine, FloridaAugust 2, 2020
Remington (Remi)
1/9/2006Remi was a beloved friend and companion to our husband and six children. He married two of them off and was watching over the others. Faithful, sweet, and loyal to the end. We love you sweet, sweet boy. Find your buddies at the bridge, we will see you there.Carole FlodinSt Johns, FloridaJuly 29, 2020
Cocoa
Buddy
6/18/2010 - 7/9/2020Buddy gave us 10 years of pure kitty love and was one of the most affectionate cats I’ve ever known. Always wanting in your lap all the time, and wouldn’t be gentle about it either, but announced himself with a big jump. Our hearts are broken, but you will forever live in our memories💞💞Vicki DFleming Island, FloridaJuly 10, 2020
Garfield
3/19/2007 - 6/4/2020Garfield, a.k.a., Boo Boo
I was lucky to spend 12 wonderful years with my beloved boo boo. Ever faithful and loyal to me, he was mine and I belonged to him. His life was taken too soon by lung cancer. This past week of mourning has been flooded with tears from sorrow, bitterness, and emptiness. But some tears came from the joy of remembering him in life.

Garfield was an old soul with so many sides to him. There were certain talents and traits that capture his spirit. I share these favorite memories to honor him and keep his light shining.

Tenacious: If it’s one thing Garfield loved to do it was EAT and would go to great lengths at scoring food. He always began reminding dinner time was approaching an hour or two ahead. In the mornings he’d walk over our heads, bat things off the nightstand, or lay in front of our heads and gently thump his tail on our faces.

Crafty: He’d figure out he could get two meals out of one by greeting one of us next to his empty bowl asking to be fed. One day Jay asked why I was feeding him again because he just ate. He outsmarted us for who knows how long!

Devoted: Every time I returned from a trip he was gleeful and super affectionate with me. It was the only time he preferred my cuddle time than food (!), which filled my heart completely. We were both so happy reunited.

Attentive: He had a funny knack for remembering silly things he did that made me laugh so he could repeat it later to amuse me or get my attention.
"Grab your tootsie!": he’d lay on his back and grab his feet just as babies do, and it was always his left foot. I suppose it’s because it was the one he grabbed when he did it the first time and saw how tickled I was. By far, this is the one thing Jay and I will remember and miss the most because he did so often for us and only us (oh yeah, and grandma too!). Jay coined the phrase, “grab your tootsie! Grab your tootsie!” and Garfield happily would…and then promptly asked for a treat.
Bathroom: the second he heard me in the bathroom he’d come running to hop behind the bathtub curtain and play peekaboo or he’d curl up in the sink waiting for attention.
Drawer peeping: don’t ask me why but for some reason I laughed so hard the first time I saw him walking by the console drawers trying so hard to figure out what was inside. From that day forward he always pretended to snoop inside any drawer he passed by whenever I was looking – never did it around other people.

Protective: Garfield was shrewd with "strangers" around me. I remember how he would stare down Jay with a menacing looks when they first met. He would flick his tail at Jay as if to say, "when are you leaving?" When we introduced Onyx to the home, Garfield made sure to let him know that he was not allowed to follow me to the bathroom and chased him away. Garfield ultimately watched over them too of course, as he protected his cat nap spots next to them when our mom's cat Miss Calico visited. Everyone's lap and arms were off limits to Miss Calico!

Garfield was also protective of the home. He once scared his cat sitter so bad that the company had to send someone else in. She reported that Garfield “charged at me and batted at my feet all the way up stairs.” Thankfully the second sitter understood Garfield, “no hissing or swatting observed previously, he just needed time to get used to sharing his home…he’s a good boy.”

Garfield is now protecting our “forever home” here in St. Augustine, FL and will be forever loved. His loving mother, his devoted father Jay, and his faithful friend and canine brother Onyx survive him and will remember him the rest of their lives.

Babie J
12/24/2005 - 5/11/2020When I rescued Babie J in 2014 it turned out that she rescued me. She was my constant companion. I am retired and was able to be with her 24/7 and where I went she went. She was true angel, she gave me an unconditional love I never had in my whole life. I spoiled her rotten and she deserved it. I am so lost without her and she will remain in my heart forever. I love you and miss you my sweet girl. Thank you God for giving her to me.Linda EngbergElkton, FloridaMay 25, 2020
