Lazare
10/3/2006 - 1/11/2019Lazare, you were a truly extraordinary feline, a once-in-a-lifetime gift. There will always be a space in my heart that belongs to you. Anything I write here will never capture the essence of you, but to all who knew you, you will never be forgotten. The way you believed everyone who came to our home was there to see you. How you squirmed into the hearts of even avowed non-cat people. When we spoke to you, you conversed with us - no one will convince me that you didn't understand everything we talked about. You were brilliant! Case in point, from the time you came to live with us, you stole every possible straw you could - and when you were done playing with your prize, you always stored it in you water dish! Cat toys? Boring! You loved craft store pom-poms; we called them your fluffs. It made me giggle when you also stored fluffs in your water dish...and required us to provide you a second water dish to drink from. I love how you always came to bed with me, and curled up with me until I was asleep, then did your night time roaming through the house. Unless I was sick or sad - those times you never left my side all night. Either way, you came to touch my face when my alarm went off in the morning - or when you felt I'd slept in quite enough, thank-you-very-much. You took great pride in anticipating where I was going next - and ran in front of me. If I changed course, it pissed you off. So funny, you would jump to bat at me when I broke pattern - I confess, sometimes I went he other way to tease you. I loved how you got mad if Samir came to kiss or even talk to me when you and I were snuggling. I loved how you and Westley teased and pranked each other. I tear up remembering you sniffing Emily's head; I don't know why you did it, but it seemed to me you were caring for our girl. I have too many memories for the number of characters allowed in this space, so let me just say, if love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. I will hold you in my heart until we meet over the rainbow bridge.Meircee BoulahroudSacramento, CaliforniaJanuary 13, 2019

Princess Gretchen
7/14/2004 - 1/11/2019We had a wonderful 9 years with Princess Gretchen. Each of our kids had the chance to have the dog Grandma Alice wanted them to share. She grew calmer through the years as she aged.Raissa FederlineMurrysville, PennsylvaniaJanuary 12, 2019

Chip
1/15/1999 - 1/6/2019RIP My dear beloved Chip.... you were the strong silent type reminding me daily to take the calm balanced route. Hands down the best cat I ever had. We had some wonderful times together which I treasure. It was an honor to be your person. I hope you found your twin brother Moose and are busy playing in heaven. The house is already different without your regal presence. You not being here is really going to take some getting used to.... Miss you buddy....

This quote by Suzanne Clothier really touches on loving a pet....
“There is a cycle of love and death that shapes the lives of those who choose to travel in the company of animals. It is a cycle unlike any other. To those who have never lived through its turnings and walked its rocky path, our willingness to give our hearts with full knowledge that they will be broken seems incomprehensible. Only we know how small a price we pay for what we receive; our grief, no matter how powerful it may be, is an insufficient measure of the joy we have been given.”

04/01/2005 - 12/01/2018My beautiful sunshine girl. I miss your constant presence. I miss the comfort of knowing that you are there. It is hard sometimes getting to sleep without first getting my snuggles and having you settled in by my side. I also miss your sassiness. You were the diva. You were the princess. Your needs were simple and straightforward--you wanted Lamby, your bed on the dresser, some good watered down smooth food, and mommy. I'm sorry that the end came so quickly. I'm sorry there wasn't more we could do. Please tell your brother and sister that we also miss them.Deletha HardinValrido, FloridaJanuary 12, 2019
Fredo
1/1/2002 - 11/26/2018Today has been a long and sad day. For those of you who never met him, this is Fredo. Also known as Freddy, Fred, Fredster, Freddykins, Fredo Potato, Freddy Bear, Freddy Bo Beddy, and most recently, Chicken Alfredo.

I was lucky enough that he claimed me as his human for the past 17 years. He loved me unconditionally, and preferred show his love to anyone who wasn’t me with (love) bites. He would follow me from room to room - even into the shower. He would wake me up at the most ungodly hours asking for food and/or belly rubs. He liked to “protect” me from hubby, because he was touching his human. He totally ruined my couch and ensured that all of my clothing had cat fur on it. He’s been my constant snuggle buddy, bookmark, yoga mat warmer, kitty therapist and best friend.

He was diagnosed with kidney disease back in June and we did our best to fight it. But in the last few days, his quality of life declined. We’ve known this day was coming.

Early December,, we made the very difficult decision to let him rest. While I am heartbroken, I am greatful that I spent the day snuggling up with him, giving him all the love he could take.

RIP, Freddy. Thank you for so many wonderful years of love and memories. Ill see you again someday. (And I like to think that Dad was waiting to greet you for me, so don’t bite him, okay?)

Bailey
2/7/2005 - 1/9/2019Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go
