RIP Beloved Tabby Cat

 
RIP Beloved Tabby says it all. He looks kind of old and sad here. Big Boy gave so much love to our family, and we gave him lots of love too. He died in the wee early morning hours of 2/13/10, in his sleep. What a cool cat; he showed up at our back door when he was about 6 and spent 10 years with us.

So sorry to hear you have lost a friend, I too have recently lost my beloved black and white cat, though sadly rather prematurely, and miss him very much. xx

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I stopped by from Lilacs and cats. He showed up at your door because he was guided to your open loving hearts. It was nice that he went in peace. LOL.

Thank you friends for your kind remarks here. I love the image of the Rainbow Bridge. My husband said that during a bike ride, he had the thought that Big Boy's cat friend, another tabby of ours who went on before, is there to greet him.
Also, I think Big Boy will be there to greet me one day. All the animals we have treated kindly may be at Heaven's parlor to welcome us. I hope so.
Our remaining cat is very upset and giving us lots of cuddle time.

Sorry you lost your beloved pet. He is waiting for you alongside Jesus, don't you think? And pain free-YES!

I have four fur children, and have buried more than I'd like to remember. All are special in their own way. I love them like kids.

Bless you,

Hi Terra,
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved friend Rip. It is never easy to loose a friend and pet. I loved reading the comment about the Rainbow Bridge.

Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog and about my beloved dog Bentley. I adopted him and he is such a joy.
Blessings,

Sorry to hear about your cat. He made a good choice when he showed up at your house and was able to spend so many years with you.

I have no idea how I ended up here.
As fate would have it, we also recently lost our long time companion. He looked a lot like your tabby. I'm so sorry, it can be a hard thing to get over. If you are interested here's the story on our big boy...
