    My Heart Is Broken

    I miss my cat so much... I couldn't even use his name in my name for this forum.  It was (?) Dickens.  He was a gigantic pain, but also the love of my life.  He was SO affectionate, would jump up and give hugs around my neck, nuzzle, nibble, cuddle.  He got...

    Larry was euthanized yesterday, 24 hours ago. He had kidney failure and was having seizures. We had our little guy for 14 1/2 years, and he was never far from us. I cannot write about his beauty and perfection because I am in too much pain. I loved Larry as much as any family...

    I Miss My Snickers So Much

    My cat snickers was 1 year and 9 months. He was always an inside cat, so the vet said there was no need to get him vaccinated. Recently I moved to the country and he had been anxious to go outside, but I wouldn't let him because I was afraid something would happen to him...

    She was just a kitten.

    It's been close to 2 years now that's she's been gone and I still miss her so much. I miss her crying outside the shower door and sleeping in my lap while I did homework and in my bed and everything really. She was so innocent and sweet.
