Cecil
8/19/2007 - 7/9/2020Cecil was adopted with his brother Cyrus from Cozy Cat cottage in Powell Ohio. He came from a litter of 7, tiniest kitten with a loud voice telling us “get me out of here”. That voice never changed. Cecil was vocal, especially in the morning. No need for an alarm clock. He told you when breakfast was to be served. Our first stop every morning was Cecil and Cyrus’ room , jump up on his cat house and look out on the court. After the world was fine, he would run downstairs to the kitchen. He would jump on the kitchen island, all four paws on the corner, waiting to lick the lid of the can. After breakfast it was time for “Ceciil’s world” where he would observe through the window by the front door. He knew at 8:30 am that it was time to watch the children walk to the bus stop. Paws tucked he would sit there all morning.. Cecil would rest in the afternoon, maybe on the kiitchen chair, maybe in his teepee, maybe his Garfield bed but at 4pm he would be downstairs on the desk chair. It’s getting dusky so it must be treat time. Back on the island , 4 paws on the corner, waiting for some treats or sometimes Bonito flakes. Off to sleep on the love seat in the living room. So many times he would cuddle up with Cyrus.
Cecil was so predictable and now, my heart hurts as I look at those places where he hung out. Cecil would inspect bags when I came home from the grocery store. He would butt with me with his head. He would give me the slow closing eyes. Of course he was a lap kitty and knead. My little Cecil, my Cecilishous, you always made us smile and laugh, such unconditional love. You will be missed. Love you❤️

Bear
2/19/2006 - 7/10/2020Look at her beautiful smile! We had the great fortune of adopting a senior pet at the Humane Society in 2014. She was 9 when her first human mom had passed away. She had been through a lot! When she joined our family, she already knew every possible trick! What a great girl! She was smart, funny, fluffy, playful, kind, silly, sweet, gentle, loveable, quirky, and had a proud prance when she walked. She had a huge personality! She loved food, too! In addition to her medicated food, she loved milkbones, chicken jerky tender treats, ice cream, cream cheese, chicken, roast beef, pizza, hamburger, steak, hot dogs, and especially Spaghettios! She was a Chow mix with 25% Chow, 25% American Staffordshire Terrier, 12.5% American Eskimo, 12.5% Lab, 12.5% German Shepherd, and 12.5% other breeds groups. This DNA explains her love for tennis balls, protective nature, and huge smile!!
From Bear’s youngest family member: I recently had to say goodbye to my best friend Bear. She was going downhill fast and we didn’t want her to suffer anymore. It was clear she was telling us she was ready. I will always remember her beautiful smile and how much she cared about everyone. She had such elegance, kindness, grace, and such a gentle spirit. I am, and will forever be thankful that I got to grow up with such an amazing dog who really helped me become the person I am today. I will always keep you in my heart and I will love you forever. I know I’ll see you again someday in heaven.❤️🐻

Kenya
1/6/2005 - 7/6/2020Lap of Love was recommended to me by a friend and I am so grateful for it. Our beloved Kenya became suddenly ill in June. She was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and despite starting treatment, clinically worsened. She was subsequently diagnosed with kidney failure, barely drank, and stopped eating. She was tired, so tired. Our hearts were broken. Despite knowing the time would eventually come, the thought of being separated from my baby of 15 years just broke my spirit. However, we would not let her suffer. Thank you so much to Lap of love, specifically Dr. Rachel Burns who assisted Kenya to her most peaceful sleep. Your team helped make a most painful experience so beautiful. It was the best decision we could have made, to have our baby in our arms one last time in the comfort of her home. Thank you again and again.Soana LaGuerreWethersfield, ConnecticutJuly 14, 2020
Saleen
7/1/2005 - 7/12/2020Our family couldn't have wished for a sweeter girl. For 15 years, Saleen has always shown our family truly unconditional love, from her first steps into our home, through her last moments shared with us. All she has ever wanted was to be in our presence, never asking for anything more than a little love.

Through the happy times, she was so silly, rolling around on her back and excitedly running away with her ball, not really grasping what she should do after a fetch. Always a puppy with a huge and healthy appetite, she could probably eat a meal twice her size, then do it all again after a few hours. Through the hard times, she was so strong and resilient - never letting out a single whimper, and doing her absolute best to show us that she was still the silly puppy we've grown to love so much.

Goodbye sweet girl. Your love for us will always be cherished, no matter where you are. You deserve the world, all the love, all the steak you could ever want. We love you so much, Saleen.

Oreo
12/30/2006 - 7/11/2020To my best-friend Oreo,

Thank you for the 14 years of unconditional love. You provided me comfort on days when I could not get out of bed. You loved me when life was difficult and when it was good. I will forever miss your hound-dog howl and your silly rolling around on the floor. Although a difficult decision, it was the right one for you. I hope that you are running around with Mocha again, I know you missed her. I'll miss you until the end of time.

Moose
10/23/2006 - 7/8/2020Moose perfectly exemplified the attributes of sweetness and loyalty associated with German Shepherd Dogs. Although he had some Labrador in his genes, many people would compliment on how handsome a Shepherd he was.

I was fortunate to have him from 9 weeks all the way until 13⅔ years old, never losing his puppy-like excitement for life. Even when walking became difficult for him, he would still be up and exploring the sights and smells.

Kako
10/2/2005 - 7/9/2020Kako left my loving arms just a few days ago. I am struggling to write something that captures the wonderful, unique little guy he was, so I'm just going to list all the ways he was awesome:
1. Kako was a "hairy-hairless" Chinese Crested. Some people thought his skin felt weird or that he looked funny (he had this wonky, wandering eye), but I believed he was perfect.
2. Kako made the most astonishing screaming sound when he was upset. It was a high-pitched, screechy howl that sounded just like a baby crying. I thought it was amazing, but it did unnerve some people.
3. Unlike most dogs, Kako could not have cared less about food. All he needed to be happy was a warm human lap to sleep on. And I was more than happy to oblige.
4. Kako did not like to walk on grass, and when he was in the backyard, he preferred to just hang out on the patio. We would carry him into the grass, where he would do his business speedy quick, and then run back to the patio.
5. The only time Kako ignored his own grass phobia was when squirrels had the nerve to visit the backyard. He would charge at them, and they would scamper up the tree. Kako would hang out under the tree (standing on the exposed roots to avoid the grass) and bark at the squirrels. He used his regular "I'm angry" bark, not his "where have all the humans gone?" scream.
6. Kako loved riding in the car. Curled up on my lap under a blanket.
7. There are rumors that Kako would sometimes do naughty stuff like bark endless at those jerky squirrels, or sneak out of the house, or have an accident inside. I denounce these slanderous accusations.
8. Kako will always be my wonderful Little Man.

Mika
4/27/2010 - 7/11/2020Mika was adopted December 2017 to be a companion for my boy cat Louie who had lost his sister. Mika was graceful and reserved. She lived belly rubs but only at her asking. My happiest times with her were when she would throw herself against my lap, and allow lots of pets. She loved to go out on the deck, and make her rounds through the garden. A diagnosis of lung cancer on July 3, led to her untimely departure. I miss her terribly, and my other cat, Maia, has been looking for today. My sweet, pretty Mika. I see you everywhere.Noriko BellWashington, District of ColumbiaJuly 13, 2020
