Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
3/21/2003 - 5/23/2020It was my spouse Leslie who coaxed the stray little tabby from the backyard into the house, in 2003, and from that day on, she was Mom’s Cat.

KitKat took a place in our family feline hierarchy underneath senior Trilby, and we always called KK “the kitten,” even as she aged to 5, then 10, then 15.

Last July, after Trilby’s exceptional run ended at age 23, KitKat finally was Queen of the House. She reigned elegantly and affectionately, pleased to see Meredyth and Tyler when they visited, up for a chin-scratch from me, but plainly happiest when on Mom’s lap, or by her pillow, or with her playing toy mouse/toy fish toss. This spring, KitKat topped 17, becoming our second-oldest cat ever, in 35 years of marriage.

Long ago, KitKat was diagnosed with a heart murmur, leading us to expect that someday she’d go quickly from a cardiac event. As it turned out, her decline was more gradual — caused by some damn slow growth in her belly, inoperable for a cat of her age.

The only positive in that — during this bleak and uncertain year, we look for anything positive — is that we had weeks of time to scratch her chin, feed her treats, observe Mother’s Day (of course), take her out for a sit in the sun, say goodbye, and usher her quietly to the end, which came today, on the porch at home, just after 5pm.

We celebrate, albeit sadly, the long and loving life of our dear KitKat, a part of our family from 2003 to 2020, and always in our hearts.

7/21/2004 - 5/23/2020Corbu faced several health challenges they past few years. He suffered from chronic kidney disease and partial paralysis from degenerative myelopathy, as well as some other issues. He used a wheelchair to walk since last summer. But despite it all he persisted. His determination was an inspiration to many who knew him and saw him on his daily walks in his wheelchair. Last week we learned that he had pancreatic cancer that had spread and treatment was not an option. He seemed to quickly decline, although on his last night with us he ate a piece of pizza and half of a rotisserie chicken. In the last years Corbu developed severe fear and anxiety going to any vet office. It was important to us that he pass in the comfort of his home surrounded by this family. It meant everything to be able to provide that for him. He was 2 months shy of his 16th birthday. We miss him terribly.Sybil SlavinRoseville, CaliforniaMay 24, 2020
5/22/2020Our Jax was a loving family member and friend to all who entered our house. He was 15 and he was the king of his castle. He loved to be with his family at all times. He loved everyone who came to the house, he would greet us when when came home and always was happy to see us. Jax loved to lay on the couch with us and loved to nap on the floor by the sun. He love his purple monkey that he would drag through the house. Jax will be missed by everyone but I know that he will always be in our hearts. Jax was a big beautiful tabby cat with beautiful green eyes. He was diagnosed with congestive heart failure back in September and his kidney were starting to fail also. He was a fighter till the end. Jax passed on Friday, May 22. We love you Jax and will miss you forever, my big buddy❤️Karen RogersNorwood, PennsylvaniaMay 24, 2020
2/21/2006 - 5/23/2020Dr. Amanda Gordon was a godsend...she helped Whimsy make her transition, and released a beautiful soul from a tortured body.Richard Martinvancouver, WashingtonMay 24, 2020
1/1/2007 - 5/22/2020Sissy was a calico colored cat who spent the first 11 years of her life living with intense second-hand smoke and developed terrible lung disease and obesity. Her owners no longer wanted her and we rescued her and adopted her. She lived her last 18 months with us. Although we saved her, in return she showered us with love and affection. I have never experienced such affection in an animal. At my side more often than not, curling up with me whenever I laid down for a nap on the couch, and just being a sweet, loving member of the family. In the end her lungs were just giving out and we did what we had to in order to make sure she did not suffer. We greatly thank Lap of Love for helping us through this difficult time.Alan BierDuluth, GeorgiaMay 24, 2020
5/21/2006 - 5/21/2020You were my constant companion for 14 years, Taylor. You were my first dog; I was 56 when you came into my life. The hours we spent walking together... How you loved to walk and chase birds... You were a "dog's dog," Taylor, and would have made a great "kid's dog." Rough and tumble and ready to play, but you were also sweet and loving, always ready to give and receive love. I miss you so much, my Big Girl, and I will think of you always for the rest of my days.Francis ScozzariNorcross, GeorgiaMay 23, 2020
10/26/2003 - 5/21/2020Our beloved Pinti passed away yesterday, May 21, 2020 in our home at the tender age of 16. She passed away next to Natty, Nicole, and me.
There are no words that can say what she meant to our family, but she gave us lots of love, companionship, friendship, and protected our family when Rod was away; and all she wanted in return was a meaty or cheesy snack. “They say that all dogs go to heaven”; if so, then I hope and pray to see you again, PintiIn the meantime, we will remember you, we will keep you deep in our hearts, and we will cherish every moment we spent with you. Thank you for all the great memories and for bringing joy to our family. We will miss you forever Pinti!

With lots of love,

Rod, Carol, Natty, Nicole Jacobo

5/21/2002 - 5/22/2020I adopted Shadey along with his brother Fidgit when they were tiny kittens. They were the dynamic duo. Fidgit passed in July of 2014 from lung cancer. Shadey was extremely friendly and enjoyed snuggling. He was very protective of my mom (who is 88), and would shadow her throughout the day. He loved chasing birds and bunnies in our yard, but didn't hurt them...he just wanted to "play". Today is the day after he gained his angel wings, and we are missing him more than words can express. Our house is very quiet without him.Lori HeffelfingerSinking Spring, PennsylvaniaMay 23, 2020
7/3/2014 - 5/22/2020Had to let beautiful Wisp go yesterday. She had a very aggressive type of cancer that was untreatable. It was horrible to have to say goodbye after only 6 years. She really was the sweetest little black kitty. She would chirp whenever someone sneezed to make sure they were ok. She also had moods we called “wispy love” where she would climb up ur front in a hug position and head boop ur face until u made her stop! She leaves behind 3 heartbroken people, a sad sister and 9 other cat companions. We will miss her so so much.Appling, GeorgiaMay 23, 2020
2/22/2017 - 5/22/2020Loosing Oscar....or Oskie as we would often call him has been one of the hardest things we have ever had to face. We got Oscar very well knowing he was a senior and that we wouldn’t get enough time with him. But he filled a space in our hearts so deep and so wide that the emptiness without him is paralyzing. We know though that he deserves to run free with all four legs with no pain, confusion or fear. He lives on in our hearts forever. We will miss his snores, snorts and grumbles. His smile, tongue and soft ears. His cuddles, waddles and scoots. We will miss everything about his sweet soul. Between the sobs I smile remembering these special times. Till we meet again baby boy.Bianca TyrellAurora, ColoradoMay 23, 2020
