9/11/2002 - 2/19/2021Chevy you were so loved and we miss you a ton. It’s so sad not having you around anymore but we know you are free of pain and enjoying your life over the Rainbow Bridge. We were so blessed to have 18 years and 4 months with you. You were a great hunter and loved bringing me presents which I did not appreciate. You were family to us and I will always have many great memories of you. Until we meet again. Love you Chevy Boy. ♥️😘😺♥️Mary PriolaVilla Park, IllinoisFebruary 22, 2021
10/5/2008 - 1/26/2021It's been 3 weeks since we lost our best friend. We miss, love, and think about you everyday, Jojo. You lived 12 years by our side, literally. You were attached at the hip with us, but we were just as attached to you. You lived through the best days and worst days with us, always keeping us company and helping us push through the hard times. You were so spoiled and everyone knew it. You would get the whole couch to yourself, and the whole bed while leaving us with a tiny corner to curl up in. You got your own plate during dinners and your own blanket and pillows so you could rest afterwards. You were the king of every house you entered. You had such a personality that shone through the way you loved to cuddle, get kisses and hugs, the way you loved to be tucked in, and how you gave kisses and licked away tears. You had the funniest underbite and cutest front teeth that always made us laugh and reminded us how cute you are. You had extremely long eyelashes and popcorn feets and the cutest little ears that reminded us of batman. You were and are a beautiful soul inside and out. You could turn our bad days completely around as soon as we came home to you wagging your tail, bring us toys, constantly pawing at us until we petted you. You made us feel so needed during thunderstorms when we would build you forts in the closet and hold you close to remind you you would always be safe with us.

It will take time for us to adjust to life here without you. We keep looking for you everywhere and not a day goes by that we don't talk about you and how different home feels without you. We look for you on the couch, our beds, the car, we wait to hear the sound of your little claws tapping around the floor, to hear you howl at the passing ambulances, to hear you bark when the doorbell rings...everything here will always remind us of you. But we know that though you are no longer here physically, you live in our hearts.

It is crazy that since you've been gone, it has not stopped snowing. You spent your last day playing in the snow and got to say goodbye in the comfort of your own bed and your home, surrounded by people you loved and who loved you immensely. To know you went peacefully is all we could ask for. You were tucked into a purple blanket and Dr. Tyler told us that purple was the color of royalty, which was so fitting for you. You were our king. You were treated like royalty from the beginning until the very end. The following day, the sky and the sunset were purple and we felt peace knowing that you were now resting. We know that wherever you are, you are chasing pigeons, squirrels, and bunnies, getting cuddles, and continuing to protect and watch over your family who misses you so much. We will always think of you a little extra and miss you even more on snowy days and when we see purple skies.

Thank you for teaching us what true unconditional love is. When the time comes that we meet again, we know that you will be there to greet us with a wagging tail and all the hugs and kisses. We love you more than words can explain and we will miss you for the rest of our lives. Thank you for the wonderful memories and for being the most perfect handsome boy you could be. You will forever be our king, Joe. <3

1/31/2021My baby chose her humans. A dog I got for my dog ended up becoming my baby, and she wouldn’t leave my dads side since he has been in hospice care. She was silly, and goofy, and protective. She was the best dog I ever could have had. She meant so much to me, and became such a lover that she meant so much to people beyond my family. I will miss her more than anything. The tears have not stopped. But she is with her sissy Lillie, and her kitty Westie. I will see them again one day, and I look forward to it.Kara ParilloOak Lawn, IllinoisFebruary 2, 2021

4/12/2010 - 1/29/2021Della was in a class of her own and loved to be the highlight of your conversation if you we talking with other around you. She would lay on her back with all 4 paws in the air. She had an internal alarm clock when it was feeding time. We would get the stare at 4:45, the stand up at 4:55 and then barking and pouting by 5. She was also so happy to see us and greet us wagging her nub, and demanding a cookie because she was a good girl. She will be greatly missed and no doubt think about her on a daily basis. We love you sweet Della Blue! ❤Julie RuizDES PLAINES, IllinoisJanuary 30, 2021
10/5/2006 - 1/20/2021Jasper, when I realized what I had to do to make you not suffer anymore, my heart broke. I still get stick to my stomach thinking of our last moments together. You didn't know what would come next in those moments and what happened next was because of the decision I had to make. A day after you were gone I gathered the strength to look at old pictures of you. I quickly realized that in your last weeks on Earth were not a reflection of the beautiful cat you once were. Seeing how sick you truly were I made my decision a little less painful, but the pain is still there. While the past few years haven't been as filled with cuddles like our first few years together, I still loved you so much. I hope that you had a good life here with me, I hope you were happy, and felt the love we all had for you. I am sorry I had to make this decision for you and I hope you know I made it out of love. If love could have healed you you would be running, catching mice, stretching out on your favorite spot on the couch, and scratching at your scratching post. But love could not do everything I wanted it to do for you. I will miss you dearly, sweet, beautiful boy. You were always so handsome and regal. That is how I will always remember you.Anna StidhamNorthbrook, IllinoisJanuary 25, 2021

8/25/2000 - 1/20/2021Miranda - our sweet fur babe of 20+ years. You were a lover from the day we brought you home. Always looking for a lap with a cozy blanket to snuggle. You were the most kind, loving, and gentle creature. If we all can live and love like you did - the world would be a better place - I know our lives were greatly touched by you. Also thank you for being a wonderful big sis to our human kiddo. The day we brought her home you showered her with kisses (and cat fur). And have been her best friend ever since. I am comforted that we could all be by your side til the very end. Enjoy all the water fountains, tuna juice, treats, and cozy spots to lay. We miss your squeaking, your kind eyes, cleaning up after the mess you made every time you ate kibble, and the need to have the door open despite it being 90+ degrees out in the summer. We miss you but know you are in a happy place!Katie O'ConnorChicago, IllinoisJanuary 21, 2021
5/10/2005 - 1/17/2021You were my hero. My Zen Master. The rock tied to my foot, keeping me on the ground, keeping me out of trouble. You were also the biggest pain in the rear. You were an outlaw, a misfit, a genuine punk. I thought I was losing my patience with you all of those times, but I see now you were in fact teaching me what patience was. Teaching me to slow down. Teaching me what real love is like--the instantaneous forgiving, the honesty that needs no mutual language.
You held your own in this world, and I am proud of you. Your strength and resilience and, towards the end, your beautiful clarity. Thank you, thank you; you were the perfect angel for me.

Tonight I went on a walk. There was fresh powder on the ground but the air was not cold. On my way back home, it began to snow the softest, warmest, wettest little flakes I've ever felt, and just for now I'm going to imagine that those little flakes were billions of kisses from my Sammy, and all the billions of kisses I had given her over the years. And it fills me with joy.

God bless everyone that is reading this. I feel your pain if you have just lost a loved one.

1/1/2002 - 1/16/2021Thank you for being my kitty Brooklyn. You were my best friend, guardian angel and soulmate. I love you.Collette McLaffertyWestchester, IllinoisJanuary 19, 2021
9/6/2010 - 1/12/2021On Tuesday, January 12, our sweetest girl transitioned peacefully in my arms, knowing until her last breath that she was loved to the moon and back. Shortly before the vet arrived, she ate a little whipped cream and licked the tears off my face. The past year of difficult medical procedures and deteriorating health could not extinguish her unassailable zest for life; the weekend before her body shut down because the cancer had spread to her kidneys and lungs, Lucy ran for a literal mile through the snow next to the lake, stopping occasionally to carefully sniff at clumps of grass and rabbit pellets. Mat and I finally made her get back into the stroller, but I'm pretty sure she would have gone for another mile if we'd let her. For the five years before she got sick, I would walk her for an hour and then make the move to turn back toward the house and she would plant herself on the ground as firmly as she could, trying to continue to pull me forward. Lucy never wanted to turn back. Those five years were full of marathon walks, endless couch cuddles, the occasionally tragic (for me)/thrilling (for her) rodent death, and fun hiking trips with our best friends Stefanie and Charlotte. Despite Lulu's extreme leash reactivity, Charlotte showed us that with the right dog and extremely slow intros, Lucy could get along with--and even live with and be very timidly bossed around by--another dog. I'm so glad that she got to experience that friendship, which made her so happy. Thank you to everyone near and far who sent us harnesses, toys, pet and human food, plants, and love over the past year. Goodbye, our Lucy Goose, Lulu, Bubbies, Luciana Dogarotti, Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. You made every moment more joyous, and I'm so glad we had each other.Brooke SpragueEvanston, IllinoisJanuary 13, 2021
