Default Please hug your fur kids

Yesterday I had to put Magic, my awesome fur kid, to sleep. He developed kidney failure and went down hill pretty fast in the last week; from what I have read and what the vet told me, kidney failure is pretty common in senior cats. I adopted him in 1998, and he would have turned 16 next month. Magic was an awesome cat and my buddy and I miss him tremendously. The house is so quiet without him. I knew this day was coming someday, but I thought we would have a couple of more years together.

Magic, I will see you at the Rainbow Bridge someday.

Please hug your fur kids, and tell them how much you love them.

My sincere condolences on your loss. It's been two years for us and the pain is still there, we still hear her in the house. True animal lovers are very special people.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Schaumburger. Our pets are family and when they must leave us, we suffer. Please accept my deepest condolences.

So sorry for your loss - I know the heartbreak. I still miss my Missy (the picture on my posts). I hope your happy memories of your time together will help you heal and bring you through this difficult time.

So sorry for your loss. I know what you are going through. Last year we lost both of our dogs. On January 2nd, we lost Midnight, our black lab, unexpectedly. On October 29th of 2012 we had to send Samantha, our german sheperd to be with Midnight. I am happy we still have our cat, Tac. He is going through early stages of kidney failure and Tac will be 13 in May. My husband and I still cry over our dogs. My husband was in the grocery store on Saturday, walked down the pet aisle and started crying. Please everyone, hug your furry children everyday and thank them for bringing you love, pleasure, smiles. comfort and companionship. Janet

I miss our CoCo, a tortoise shell Persian we "inherited" from my daughter-in-law. She was "dentally challenged" with a snaggletooth on her lower jaw, what a personality. I miss her meeting us every morning on the kitchen floor to have her belly rubbed, she wouldn't leave until it got rubbed. Our fur kids sure add to our quality of life, don't they? I'm sad for your loss.

So sorry for your loss, Laura. I feel your pain. I hug my schnauzers (and they hug me) so much that I smell like a dawg, LOL.
