Sad Weekend



Guinness was, in short, the best cat I’ve ever known. After 15 years with us, our kitty and our friend is gone. We will miss him so very much.

Oh, Missa, my heart goes out to you. Losing a pet is heartbreaking.

Heidi Ann said...

Oh, Missa -I'm so sorry. My Dizzy kitty feels like one of my very best friends, and I have known in the past the heartache of losing a very dear pet/family member. Guinness sure was a handsome cat!

Andrea said...

So very sorry :) I love my animals like family so I know how difficult their passing can be.

Wow it seems like there's been a lot of death- pet and human- the past few weeks. I haven't lost anyone, but I have inexplicably been almost fixated on the suicide of my friend a year and a half ago. (She left behind a 16 month old daughter- hello, horrible- and she did it on Mycelia's 2nd birthday). I'm so sorry Missa. It's always harder in winter too.

Awww, what a sad day. I can't imagine what I would do if my cat's passed on. They are such a part of our families and so adored. I'm so sorry to hear about your sweet lil one.

I have gathered a box of goodies that I want to send to you, when you get a moment will you send me your address. I did a huge overhaul on my closet and there were some vintage goodies and other things that I think you would like. Maybe that will cheer you up just a touch. My email address is Jocehairart@gmail.com

Dear Thrift Candy,

I am currently caring for our aging and beloved family dog in the last months of her life. She is completely blind. Everynight I kiss her and wonder if she will see spring. All these years I have so come to depend on her unconditional love. I am so sorry for your loss.

Christy said...

Just wanted to say I'm thinking of you - losing a cat is just like losing a friend, but you'll have happy memorie.

Antonella said...

So sorry for your loss.

January 25 is a year that my sweet doggie suddenly passed away.
You never truly know how a furry friend stole your heart till you lose him/her.

Hugging you from Italy

I am so very sorry for your loss!! I know how hard it can be when a pet dies, especially when they become a member of the family :( On a lighter note, that first photo with you in the dress looks gorgeous! You look like you belong in an Anthropologie ad campaign ;)

Jessi said...

Now, we have a dog... and THAT is another story. I am a CAT person.

I'm really sorry to read about your little cat, pets really are a part of the family, it's nice though you have some lovely photos to remember him by.

I lost my sweet, fat cat last Saturday. Not a day goes by where I'm not looking for her to come and give me a kiss. So very sorry for your loss.

So very sorry. We lost our own sweet Henry after only 8 much-too-short years, and I am well and truly heartbroken.

xox,

I'm so sorry to hear this. So sad. My condolences to you and your family; I hope you guys are doing well (or will be doing well soon).

Karima said...

I'm so sorry. He always looked and sounded like a great kitty and friend.

jesse.anne.o said...

I am so sorry. He looks as though he was well-loved and not every cat gets to be so lucky. Lucky both of you - he for having you, and you for having him.

Kim Grant said...

Love to you. You gave him many happy years. That's our job as pet friends.

Hannah said...

Aw I'm so sorry for your loss, but it looks like he had a long and wonderful life.
