7/13/2008 - 2/28/2021We are broken hearted with the passing of Stevie. She was diagnosed with Cushing’s disease last month and there was something else going on the vet could not identify even after every test possible. There has been a slow decline since the fall and the past three weeks have been particularly hard. With no hope of getting better and with her misery increasing every day, we made the decision to do what we thought best for her. Many of you have gone through this and understand. One could not ask for a more stalwart friend, keen-eyed co-pilot, and vigilant guardian. We sure had some great adventures, and a purer heart and soul I have never seen. We will miss her always.Ken GottLeavenworth, KansasMarch 1, 2021
Her spirit was undaunted; the only fear was riding in the car, and no words of comfort soothed her there.
Otherwise, she stood her ground against all foes: the rescued border collie and the newer cat named Dixie who refused to be her friend.
She was my Baby Cat, sharing almost everything I ate, and playing until near the end with spools and balls and lids, all of which I later found
Beneath my chair.
So many memories of her lie easy and forever in my heart.
How I wish they filled the empty space
She left there.

8/31/2008 - 11/22/2020I had my beloved Gussie for only 9 years which is the least of any of my cats but in that time my love for her grew stronger than I could ever imagine. Gussie was the perfect little snuggle bug which I just love in my pets. She wanted to snuggle up to and would have loved to sleep right up against my other cat Rosie for as long as Rosie would allow it. She worked her magic on Rosie enough that they would occasionally nap next to one another and groom each other. They were sweet together. They would wrestle and chase each other at times too but it was always so playful and never too rough.
The last five or six years I gave Gussie a daily medication and she was SO good about taking it that it felt like she was trying to be helpful about it. I like to think she knew it was helping her. Sometimes when she'd hear me shaking it up she would come meet me to take it. Her sweetness like that just always got me.
She could be a little stinker at times too but I was already too in love with her to mind. For example she loved clawing up a chair that I eventually just called 'her chair' because it was shredded.

5/9/2005 - 11/17/2020Virginia, aka “Good Girl”, “Puppy”, “Pooper”, "Thumper", and "Gray Lady", left us on 11/17/2020 at the ripe old age of 15-1/2 years. She was a survivor. Having started life on the streets of downtown KC, I found her and her labrador brothers late one workday in an empty lot. She was the only black one and the only female, and she first endeared herself to us when, trailing her brothers down an alley, she managed to knock them all over like a bowling ball when all except her stopped at our beckoning. We found homes for the brothers, but Virginia was to be ours.

Nothing would keep her down. She had so much energy that my wife started running again to tire her out each day. She was the perfect running companion for hundreds of miles, and it always made me feel better knowing how she would put herself between my wife and danger.

In the early years, she chewed everything, from the vintage heirloom sofa to the baseboard on the wall. When I had foot surgery, she napped with me, resting her head on my belly. Then came our children, and she graciously accepted them one by one into our ‘pack’. In fact, I’m pretty sure that is when she made my wife her fave.

Each day she was unsatisfied until the last of us was back in the house safely. And this was tough, because we travelled a lot. Whether we were gone 5 weeks or 5 minutes, she always welcomed us home with a smile.

In her prime, she was svelte. An athlete, just like my wife. Everyone commented on how beautiful she was, even after she “retired" from running. She and I grew old and gray and arthritic together.

In 15-1/2 years, she never ever left a morsel of food in her bowl. Not even on her last day. She did leave plenty drips of water all over the kitchen floor.

Virginia, you reflected more perfectly than any broken human the attributes of God—unconditional love, loyalty, faithfulness and joy. You were His gift to us. I wish we could know what God’s eternal plan is for pets, but if you are with Him, I am confident he greeted your arrival with “Well done, Good Girl. Well done."

6/24/2008 - 4/14/2020Our Franklin Elizabeth Ann....(Frank) We love you and miss you. You gave us so much love, happiness, laughter and comfort. We miss your wagging tail when we walk through the door. We miss every night at 8:45 pm when you would tell us its time to play and go out before bed. We miss your sweet face that told us so much about what you were thinking or how you were feeling. We keep thinking we see you through the house and our heart breaks again when we remember, but we also smile knowing that we got to be loved by you and have you in our lives.Travis and Ann TilleryOverland Park, KansasApril 16, 2020
6/20/2020 - 4/12/2020Seamus was the most social little guy you could ever meet. We got him to help our other cat, Sebastian with being more social and to make sure he wasn't too lonely with just us humans. Seamus was a little spider monkey when we first got him. He loved to climb up my fiance's jeans and stand on his shoulder. His love for life was undeniable. Seamus was my little purr monster and He always let you know when he wanted pets or if he was hungry. The impact he had on our lives and our fur babies lives is indescribable. We loved him so much and he was taken much too soon. We know he is out of pain now, but we are still picking up the pieces. RIP sweet boy, we miss you so much.Cassie RichterOverland Park, KansasApril 14, 2020
