My heart goes out to you on your loss. I'll never forget the birthday party you threw for him. May each tear you cry bring you a measure of peace.Elizabeth Pomery - November 11, 2015
Dear Rufus, I love looking at all of your photos. You were clearly such a good little buddy-- the best! So charming and full of personality. You will be deeply missed until you are united again with your lucky parents. You're in good hands until then. Hope you've found a new catnip banana. Rest in peace buddy. Sending you and your mom so much love.M. Silver - November 11, 2015
Rufus was very fortunate to be so loved and I think he knew it....he gave Kari and Josh a lot of love and happiness in return.Stacy Chirillo, DVM - November 6, 2015
Although I never had the good fortune to greet Rufus in person, he managed to make himself a comfortable bed in my heart. His sweet face was well-captured in the pictures Kari snapped, and I'd always smile and send warm vibes out when he popped up on my newsfeed. It always surprised and amazed me how much love I felt for a critter I'd never meet in person. Rufus' memory will live on; he left his paw prints on many people's hearts. May he rest in peace on a soft bed in a sunbeam that never shifts.Jen Knack - November 5, 2015

Rufus, your presence made an indelible mark on my friends lives. They loved you so! Your absence has left a void that can never be filled. That space in their hearts was yours alone. Sweet boy, we hope to see you again when it's our turns to cross the Rainbow Bridge. You were loved.Lisa DeStefano - November 5, 2015
I am very sorry about Rufus. There is something so special about cats and Orange tabby boy cats.
You will be missed, dear kitty. 💔

I never met you but I know I would've loved you. You gave your mom and dad so many purrfect years. I know that you gave them your heart and they gave theirs to you and that's what makes it all worth it.

Our paths never crossed, but you were always in my thoughts. I'm sure had we met, I would have stashed you away in my purse and never looked back. What a wonderful gift you were to those who knew and loved you. I hope you enjoy many sun-filled naps with my cats!Lindsay Walls - November 4, 2015

My deepest sympathy to you. Very pretty and you will see him again one day.sherry ventura - November 3, 2015
Dear Friends.. So sorry about the loss of Rufus! Amazing how such a small creature can grab a hold of our heart, isn't it? I always tho't I was a dog person until 'Blackie' came in to my life. I learned how loving and affectionate cats could be.. When he left us (17 years ago!), the house was so empty. We still have many great memories of him. Let's hope Rufus and my Blackie are rolling in fields of catnip together, smiling and remembering how very loved they were while here with us - and still are! They may be gone, but never, never forgotten. Take good care.....Kari Newcomer - November 3, 2015
