It is so hard to lose our furry companions. They bring so much joy into our lives. I wish I knew something to make you feel better. So I will just send kind thoughts your way.

What a beautiful kitty. So sad. Sending good thoughts your way. :grphug:

One of the toughest things I have ever had to do was put down an animal. Sorry for your loss.

Requiescat in pace.

So sorry to hear that Jan :hug: Such a hard thing to have to do :cry:

Very sorry to hear! It is unbearable to lose our friends! How lucky we are to share our lives with these amazing friends!

It's always heartbreaking to lose the animals who add so much to our lives. What a beautiful kitty. You were lucky to have her (him?) for such a long time. I have 3 cats, and the youngest is 13, so I know the time will come.

You have my sympathy.

03-10-2010, 03:51 PM
No matter how long they are with us it is never long enough. You have my sympathy and am sending cyber hugs to you.

03-10-2010, 03:56 PM
As others have said, words cannot take away the pain at this time, but know that your kitty loved you and watches over you. Animals are the most precious things in our world, and the fact that some entrust themselves to us is a gift. :hug::heart:

I can also sympathize. What a beautiful cat and obviously well taken care of . I have a 16 year old almost toothless one myself. Used to have 13 cats and they all died. I hate to see them go.

I'm so very sorry that you lost your dear Marshmallow! Very pretty with bright blue eyes.........Rainbow Bridge is by far a richer place now. Please remember to take good care of yourself during this time.

I know it is hard to lose family member, especially one who is so loyal and a true friend. :pray: :hug:

I am so sorry for you. I had to put my best friend of 10 years down July 11, 2009. She was 17 years old! :grphug: to you!

:grphug: ...we used to take care of a whole feral colony, and they're down to just a few indoor furbuddies now. I'm so glad you had your beautiful Marshmallow for such a good long life. You must have taken wonderful care of her.

03-10-2010, 11:47 PM
AWWW! SO sorry to hear about it. I remember when she was your thumbnail pic. Makes me cry just to think about it...:hug: :hug:

So sorry, Jan. My thoughts and a big hug are with you.

:hug::hug: Oh Jan I just saw that your beautiful Marshmallow has passed. They do own our hearts don't they. Sending healing thoughts to you.

03-11-2010, 12:20 PM
Big hugs to you! I know it is so hard! My doggie has been in the hospital since Tuesday and they didn't think she was going to make it and i was distraught!
She (he?) was just stunning and i'm sure a wonderful friend!

03-11-2010, 02:10 PM
Jan in CA I am so very sorry for your loss. It is so very hard to go through that. Sending comforting thoughts your way.

Dear Jan - I wrote this specially to remind you that love never dies and no friend is ever truly lost... Hope this helps!

There's a line, a golden thread,
That goes from heart to heart
It never breaks, it never dims
When life says we must part.

So when you're down and feeling sad,
Just give that line a tug
And know somehow your much-loved friend
will feel it as a hug!

Much love,

Oh Jan, I'm so sorry for your loss :hug:

Ruthie, your poem brought tears to my eyes...

Jan, so sorry you lost a beloved pet. Isn't it amazing how our 4 legged friends become such important parts of our family.

03-11-2010, 10:41 PM
Jan ,
I am sorry you lost your Marshmellow. The cat was a beautiful cat and shows the wonderful care you gave it . I wish I could give you a hug. Our furry friends are always with us as long as we remember them.

JanInCA, I am so sorry for your loss! Marshmellow (such a great name!) looked sooooo beautiful in your photo. 19! She obviously did not want to leave you! Very sad how short the lives are for our dearest furry friends - how precious time is.... We lost our scottie of 15 years just 2 months ago & are still grieving too. Better, but it takes time. Please know that you will find your way thru your grief. I read a few books from the library - one, 'Wet Noses at the Pearly Gates' helped me a little bit. Others helped too... Listen to your needs & what helps YOU. Just little things. Take care of yourself, too. Oh, and look for the love you gave her to come back to you... It will. Watch for it. We received a small plant from a very unlikely person in memory of our scottie... :hug:
more hugs,

Jan, I'm so sorry about Marshmallow. My thoughts are with you :hug:

I just noticed your post, I'm sorry about your kitty. She was beautiful. It's so hard to let go.

We still miss ours that we lost 2 and 4 yrs ago respectively...even though we have a new set of two!

I'm sorry it is hard for me to.I hope you'll be alright.
