8/20/2003 - 3/13/2014It is with great heartbreak that we had to bury our dear sweet Halbie today. Dr. Brad Bates, a wonderful vet from Lap of Love came and did an in home euthanasia yesterday so our Halbie could be in familiar, comfortable surroundings when he passed. Dr. Brad was kind and gentle, with a consoling beside manner that put me at ease. I got to hold and talk to Halbie and kiss him and scratch his ears for at least 15 minutes while he was sedated so he could feel no pain but still hear my voice. I told him how much we loved him and would miss him but he would feel all better now. I constantly repeated all the greetings I would give him and things I would say to him when he was well and wanted to be carried around like a baby and petted, hugged and kissed. He always wanted to be with me and followed me around like a puppy. Whenever I sat or lay down he wanted to be right on top of my lap….or my neck! Thank you, Halbie, for loving us so deeply and unconditionally. Thank you for being there for me every single time, especially during the bad times. You are such a sweetheart, one in a million. I’ll never experience another cat like you. Grateful to have us and always affectionate. Happily allowed Brayden to manhandle you, even hold you upside down and dance with you. You were the first thing Brayden smiled at as an infant, and one of his first words: “kit-kat.” You always wanted to be with us and snuggle. Never did I hear a cat purr so much in my life. There is a gaping hole in my heart; you will be deeply missed. You went way too soon and much too quickly. I am glad your suffering has ended, however I feel mine is just beginning. I’m not sure how to face life without you, my little buddy and constant companion. Your genuine and unequivocal love will never be forgotten. Thank you for coming into my life and making it fuller. We love you. Godspeed, Halbinator, our Little Half Tail. 8/20/2003 – 3/13/2014.Christel NickumDoylestown, PennsylvaniaMarch 15, 2014

Less tail than most cats
Lost a half and found a home
More heart than any
