Ruby Tuesday
4/1/2003 - 4/10/2017In loving memory of Ruby Tuesday, a sweet gray striped kitty with green eyes and a cute pink nose from Perth Amboy, NJ. Ruby was a rescue cat found by a Ruby Tuesday restaurant dumpster. Lisa, formerly an employee of Just Cats, fostered her until she was ready for adoption. 14 years ago the Durans were fortunate to bring this special kitten into their loving home. She was a very playful kitten but also very affectionate. The Duran’s other cat, Smokey, who was 5 at the time, took a liking to her and enjoyed cuddling while sleeping. Some things Ruby especially enjoyed were keeping warm by the space heater, cheese, laying in a new cardboard box, playing rough with her dad, and snuggling in her mom’s lap with her head tucked against her. She loved to eat, was a very vocal beggar, and never wanted to share! She was also very gentle, never bit or scratched anyone, and would even let small children play with her. When her parents were away she enjoyed being babysat by neighbor Stephanie, and her daughters Leeah and Ahsia. Ruby was diagnosed with kidney disease at the early age of 3, and under the care of Dr. Rottenberg of Just Cats, she lived a happy life for 11 more years. Thanks to Dr. Shannon she spent her last moments in her mom’s lap and left in a basket, looking at peace and covered with a soft pink blanket. The Durans miss Ruby so much and are so appreciative of the time they shared with this very special companion.Erica DuranPerth Amboy, New JerseyApril 22, 2017
10/25/1999 - 4/20/2017I never understood why people would get so emotional about "just an animal". Then Meisha came into my life and I finally understood. She became my friend, my companion and my baby. I was never alone. She gave me that unconditional love that some people only hear about. She would make me laugh and tell stories about her antics like people tell about their children. She was my child. Meisha has left her paw prints on my heart.Denise DoverTampa, FloridaApril 21, 2017
4/30/2008 - 4/10/2017Although we have had many pets over our lifetime, Howard (aka Boo Boo Bear) was by far the most intelligent, loving, loyal and sweetest dog we’ve ever had the privilege of caring for. He was silly and sweet and had a personality and character that jumped off the charts. We shared a bond of true love and although my heart is irreparably broken by his absence, I will always be blessed by the memories and the fact that he gave me far more joy throughout his life than I could ever give back. For that I will be eternally grateful. In loving memory of Howard, gone too soon but may he be happy in Heaven and waiting patiently for us to reunite. You’re dearly missed my Handsome Boy.Elizabeth Lodwig-ParsonsTonawanda, New YorkApril 21, 2017

1/23/2013Shiloh was a sweet faced little black pug. He was always ready for a cuddle, a hug, or just a pat on the head. If you happen to have a cheese curl in your hand at the same time, that was double pleasure. He brightened the day of all who met him. God Rest his Kind Soul. He is missed and was loved as much as we could ever imagine loving anyone. Xoxo until we meet againSharen UlmerPhiladelphia, PennsylvaniaApril 20, 2017
4/1/2005 - 4/9/2017We adopted Jake 12 years ago when he was less than a year old. He was a cute kid who was just happy to be. He always made us smile. He was not a real loving dog but he was a good companion who loved to be brushed and pampered. His little nub of a tail was always wagging and we said many times that if his tail ever stopped wagging, we would know it was time. Well, Jake's time came rather unexpectedly after beating pancreatitis again but then discovering 2 weeks later that he had lung cancer. He was a happy trouper til the end. His tail wagged its last as we tearfully said goodbye to our beloved friend.Jay WillsLexiington, South CarolinaApril 20, 2017
6/9/2011 - 4/17/2017Bear you are the light of our lives and your only desire was to be with us and please us in every way. We will miss the way you would back up to us so you could have your hind quarters scratched and petted. We often called you Bear Butt with love and humor. We were so sorry when you first injured your right leg and we tried to keep you protected, safe and happy. It looked like you were in somewhat of a recovery when you injured your left leg after you chased that squirrel in our yard. It pained us so much to see you lying in the grass and unable to move. You never complained and I know you didn't understand why we couldn't bring you inside after your injury. We just couldn't lift your 162 lb. body up the porch stairs. We had to have your short life ended to end your suffering. Our hearts are broken and so wish you could still be with us. We miss you terribly. We thank Dr. Katie for helping us say our goodbyes.Linda MillerWest Columbia, South CarolinaApril 19, 2017
10/26/2003 - 4/16/2017In loving memory of my pretty girl, you were with us when Angel was 5 you were just 6 weeks old when we adopted you. When you turned 4 we got you a four legged companion, Jubie. Then Eli was born. We bought our first house and you were there, always our loyal companion. When we decided to move to NC you gave me a big scare. I thought I was going to loose you then. But no, you stayed strong for me. Then we bought our second home and we welcomed Kai into our family. And still you kept me company. You grew older and weaker and then in late June 2016 I got the news. The vet said "I should count myself lucky if you lived until your birthday" he gave you an average of four months. But my pretty girl you proofed him wrong you made it to 10. I never wanted to make this decision, for my heart breaks to know I will no longer see your pretty face. But it pained me more to see time pass. How you slowly started loosing more weight, the cancer was spreading and becoming more visible. On that awful Sunday morning I knew I had to make the decision to let you go. I'm glad I got to hold you tight and tell you how much I loved you and how much I was going to miss you. It was hard for me to look into your pretty eyes to know that was the last time I would look into them. My heart aches for Angel who has grown with you. He is almost 19 and in collage now. Eli will be 7 next month and he too morns your lost. Kai is 1 1/2 he will probably grow up hearing about you and how great you were. I will keep Jubie safe for you.
Until we meet again my pretty girl!
