    Oh honey, I'm so sorry! I know she will be missed. Pets really are a part of the family aren't they? My boys have been gone over a year and I still miss them all the time.

  3. I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful cat. I lost one of my childhood cats at a very advanced age last summer, and was absolutely devastated. What a wonderful friendship you must have had, though!

  4. Myutopia,

    Thanks so much. I don't know what I'm going to do without her. She was my little shadow.

    Heather,

    Thanks. The house feels so weird without her, already. Yes, they're a huge part of the family. I'm going to miss her like crazy; she was the smartest, sweetest cat I've ever been owned by.

  5. Pour of tor,

    Thanks so much. We had a wonderful friendship. Up until a few days ago, she was still following me into the bedroom when I read in the afternoon. She actually tried, this morning, but only made it halfway down the hall. Hugs to you for the loss of your childhood kitty, too.

  9. Condolences, darling. My own cats are getting old and one has a chronic illness... I dread losing either of them.

    All of us -- real, fictional and feline -- at West of Mars send our love.

  11. And what a beautiful face it was.

    Cats are an interesting part of our lives, aren't they? They seem so... unsubstantial while they're here. We feed them, pet them, cuddle with them, but they don't seem to take up the space like a dog does.

    Then, they're gone and we're left with a huge hole in the middle of our lives. I absolutely could not believe how much space my cat had actually occupied in my heart and my home. Even though I have a new one, I still miss my little buddy.

    You're in my thoughts.

  14. I'm so sorry to read this! God bless her beautiful little self. Everyone at our house (furry and otherwise) will say a special prayer for her, and for your family.

    One of our cats died this past April, and though I'm glad she didn't suffer, I still think I see her out of the corner of my eye, coming into the room sometimes ...

  28. Lotus,

    Thank you. Sunshine was more like a dog than a cat - very smart and a terrific companion. I appreciate the hugs.

    Iliana,

    Thank you. The guys are handling it better than I am because Sunshine followed me everywhere; she was such a great companion. Thanks for the hugs.

  34. Amanda,

    Thank you for the thoughts and prayers. I'm so sorry you lost your kitty, last year. It's much more heartbreaking than I'd anticipated - it's been a long, long time since I lost a pet.

  35. Bookfool, they inhabit our hearts, don't they? I think God loves His creatures as much as we do (remember how they are talking beasts in Narnia?) and I'm sure they will be in His care when they leave ours. Meanwhile, I send you hugs.

  36. Bellezza,

    Oh, yes, I do believe God loves every creature. Thanks for your words of comfort and hugs.

  41. Nat,

    Thank you, yes, I miss her more than I ever imagined. She was a buddy cat and hung out with me most of the day (Spooky is kind of solitary). Thanks for the hugs. :)

  43. Nyssaneala,

    Thank you. Yes, it's amazing how our pets become just as close to us as the humans in the family. Our other kitty is being nicely tolerant of our neediness, this week.

  45. Lynne,

    Thank you. We're improving, little by little. Even though we knew what was coming, I have to admit I was caught a little off-guard by the huge hole she left behind. Every little message has helped me to get through the day. Thanks so much.
