7/6/2005 - 9/24/2020From mom:
Had to say goodbye yesterday to my best kitty friend in the whole wide world, Abby.

I remember our first night in my Stockton apartment together as a kitten, you were cuddled up next to me in my bed, I told you “the only person you have to love is me, no one else” and you did just that for 15 great years girl. You eventually let Nick into your life as well-after some heavy hazing of going to the bathroom on his clean laundry, suitcases, and work papers...(glad you always spared my stuff-thank you for that)

You were with me through so many big things in my life, always there for me, just wanting to be loved and pet. I’ll never forget you laying on my chest, taking a nap, nick walked by and said “I’ve never seen a cat love someone so much, she’s your best friend”. It was so true, and reciprocal.

I’m going to miss our almost daily naps together, you waiting by the laundry room door for me to get home from work, and my 6 am alarm clock (sometimes your timing was off and it was 4 am) waking me up for what I like to tell myself was waking me up bc you didn’t want me to sleep in for work—but mostly because you wanted to be fed.

Thanks for the great 15 years-you were such a strong kitty-thanks for being perfect and being my best friend—love you little girl! You were strong as hell with all odds against you! Love you! 💛

From dad:

So with all these thoughts of Abby in my head I want get them down so they don’t keep cycling over and over. At least I hope.

You were not my cat. You were Katie’s partner in crime but you did let me in after a year. Lol. And lot of pee on my stuff.

You were there when I spent late nights writing all the versions of American Muscle, when I woke up at 4am and came up with the outline I looked up to see you.When I was writing papers for my MFA I would look over and you be there.
When my job turned its back on me and I had to pull myself together it was the pets to you that calmed me down and let me push forward.

And all you ever wanted in return was to be left alone. Lol. And some pets.

But like I said you were your mama’s cat and you always had her back and were always there for her.

You can rest now baby girl, I got mom from here.

6/29/2008 - 9/24/2020Lux was a great part of our lives! He will be missed dearly. We are comforted knowing he lived a great life and gave us and our family and friends SOOOOO MUCH joy! I'm sure he is having a ball in dog heaven. Rest up my friend. We all love you so!LaShaun JacksonOrland Park, IllinoisSeptember 25, 2020
10/18/2003 - 9/25/2020You have given us 17 years of companionship and fun. Life without you will be so strange.It has only been 1 day since you left but it seems like forever to us. I know you are in a better place and pain free which is all I can ask. Be well my buddy.CLARA LYALLCHIICAGO, IllinoisSeptember 25, 2020

9/24/2020Winnie was the happiest little dog ever. Each morning she was so excited to wake up and have her new day. It was infectious. She also was a brave little one trying to keep close and giving lots of kisses and love during her cancer ordeal this past 6 months. It was so hard but I was grateful to Laps of Love to give me such a peaceful and loving end to my girl. She was comfortable and with me the entire time. I have two other dogs who are a little at odds right now. She was small but left a great hole in our lives. I'm happy her painful journey is over.Laura WoodallIndianapolis, IndianaSeptember 25, 2020
3/25/2001 - 9/13/2020Bogie, you were small but so incredibly loving. Your loud Siamese meow and constant snuggles warmed the hearts of many. The hole in my heart after your passing is large, but knowing you had a beautiful, long life full of 20 years of memories makes it a little bit easier. You always knew when I was sad, upset and just needed some Bogie cuddles. Thank you for being a constant in my life the past 20 years. There will always be a divide of life with Bogie and then life after Bogie. Your brother is busy keeping me company but he misses you as well. I miss you every day little one.Steffanie BartholmeSan Diego, CaliforniaSeptember 25, 2020
7/11/2012 - 9/23/2020Lowlie Bowlie - God had a plan when created you, and I am so grateful he led me straight to you. We got to spend wonderful years together and everyday we got to enjoy that big smile you always had on. We will miss your sneaky sock stealing, and playing hide and seek. We loved it when you’d get a burst of energy and go tearing around the backyard as fast as you could. Or how you’d take off running after a good belly rub. Or hand us your paw and ask for more scratches. We loved every wrinkle on the beautiful face, and squishy neck rolls too. We are going to miss your baby soft fur under our hands. Even your snoring that we often complained about, I’d give anything to hear it now. When the day comes to see you again we will never be parted. We love you so much. See you in the blink. Love, Mom, Dad, Mom-Jane and the kids.Jane NelsonDelray Beach, FloridaSeptember 25, 2020
9/1/2003 - 8/24/2020Roco was the best cat-child I could ask for. He meant the world to me.Laura SHillsborough, New JerseySeptember 25, 2020
3/29/2005 - 9/22/2020Meggie joined our family after the passing of my parents. My mom couldn't leave this little pup after seeing her at the breeder. Her name was Dorothy, and several of us wanted to name the pup Toto. Mom wouldn't hear of it! Meghan it was, Meggie for short. Mom passed when Meggie was 4, so she was Pops' companion until 2012 when he went on to heaven to join Mom. He knew our daughter, Cenia, had a special bond with Meggie, so she settled in with us. She was a sassy, strong-willed, playful, fun, demanding, smart, entertaining, energetic pup! She growled (truly a happy, purring kind of growl) when you petted her or gave her a scratch on the bum. She really was such a fun pet. We will miss her big personality around our house!Kathleen GoldsteinCharlotte, North CarolinaSeptember 25, 2020
Mr. Spankers
1/17/2006 - 6/21/2020Spanky was the best dog. He was our first baby as a couple. He was such a good boy and tolerated our twins from newborns until they were 4 when he passed away. If they were bothering him, he would just walk away, but he loved them. We would sometimes find him sleeping outside their bedroom door. As he got older, he had trouble walking up the stairs, but he still made the journey up to say goodnight every time we put them to bed. He got to spend his last few senior years in our first house with his own yard and he loved it. He was my furry best friend and kept me company while I worked at home. He always slept in our bed until he got a bit older. He loved everyone he ever met, people and other dogs. Although he especially loved hounds. I miss him dearly, but I know one day I'll see him again. He was such a good boy <3Austin, TexasSeptember 25, 2020
6/1/2012 - 9/19/2020Pooja was the best kitty! We’ve had and still have some very fine kitties that we love but this girl was amazing. She was special, and I think she knew it. She was only eight years old, so her loss feels especially unfair. We only had a few months with her after we found out she had lymphoma. The excellent care she received from her regular vet and from the specialty vet she saw kept her quality of life up until the last few weeks.

In what has been a terrible year for many people, the only good thing that has happened due to covid was that I was able to work from home since March and be with her these last months. She was my very special helper – taking naps on my work binders, talking to the people during Zoom meetings, and shredding forms on my desk. I loved being able to spend all day with her, and I miss her terribly. We all do.

It’s been incredibly hard not to have her around these last few days, but she will never leave us because we will never forget our Pooja.
