    So very sorry. It's hard to lose any of them, but the special ones ... well, just hugs, and the little comfort that comes from knowing that we understand.

    I am so sorry. RIP Willow.

    I lost my heart cat almost 3 years ago now and it still makes me sad thinking about it. He died coming out of anesthesia after an emergency surgery to remove his gall bladder and blocked bile duct.

    Vet called me and said everything went great and he should make a full recovery and then called me 30 mins later with the terrible news. I was devastated to say the least.

    Thank you all for the replies, it really helps. She was one of a kind and I'm feeling lost without her around. It's the little things like if I didn't let her into the bathroom with me she'd stick her paws under the door, or the plastic milk rings from the milk jugs she'd steal and play with for hours. I've found them everywhere.

    I've lost other cats before to old age and for them I was sad but I knew it was coming and prepared for it. This was so sudden it is just hard to wrap my brain around it. It is true though she died at home, loved, warm and happy. Vince her buddy is a flame point snow shoe and he's hanging out with me and keeping close. Thanks again for the support it's much appreciated.

    Oh I'm so sorry for your loss there are no words. Sending jingles your way that you may have peace.
    Michael: Seems the people who burned me want me for a job.
    Sam: A job? Does it pay?
    Michael: Nah, it's more of a "we'll kill you if you don't do it" type of thing.
    Sam: Oh. I've never liked those.

    I'm so sorry. I am very much a cat person, so I can understand how hard this is.

    My childhood kitty, that we had since I was a baby, died when I was 17 and I was absolutely devastated. She was one of a kind and I STILL miss her ten years later. I've had another cat for the last ten years who I adore, but he's still no Buffy. She was special.

    Many hugs to you.

    I'm so sorry for your loss, I know how sad and raw you feel at the moment.

    I prepared myself in the fall that my old heart dog, the shaggy mutt, with the bad heart, dodgy hip, cataracts, and poor outlook, would not survive the winter.

    He is still with us, but our beautiful Doberman died, like your beloved friend he went suddenly while in his prime, and it was just a devastating shock.

    The only thing that I kept telling myself was that for him it wasn't a bad way to go, he was chasing a snow hare and just dropped. He was spared the slow decline into old age, that so wouldn't have suited him.

    Time is a great healer, and it is the saddest thing that our beloved animals live such fleeting lives, the only worse pain than losing them is the thought of never sharing that joy, no matter how long or short a time we are blessed with it.

    I'm so very sorry. We have two cats that we are very close to, and I don't want to think about losing either of them. Sending warm thoughts.

    So sorry for your loss. Hopefully time will ease your pain, but sharpen your memories of the good times you shared. I feel your pain too clearly.

    I am so sorry for your loss of Willow. It's so hard to lose them, but to lose them unexpectedly is even more difficult. I'll be sending prayers out for you and Willow tonight.
