Once Upon a Time

There once lived a kind and gentle cat named Emma. She never scratched or bit, nor did she ever hiss at a person. She always came when she was called, saying hello with her quirky raspy meow. She was very shy, but she was an ambassador of purring and love to all who met her. For 17 years her family was privileged to be kept by her, our little angel kitty, and she will live on always in memories.

Goodbye Emma, we will miss you so much.

That is very sad. Losing a beloved pet is really losing a beloved family member. Too many folks don't realize this. My favorite pup has been gone for 10 years and I still miss him.

What a wonderful 17 years Emma had. How lucky she was that a family loved her so much.
I am sorry for your loss... I still miss a couple of favorite sweet kitties who left my life. I think I will give my two lovies a little extra treat when I get home tonight.

Good bye, sweet Emma. I'm so sorry for your loss, Romi. When our beloved old dog Molly died, I told our boys, "Molly got too old to watch over you here anymore, so now she's watching over you from heaven."

Dear Romi,
It's always very hard when a pet goes away. The only thing, is to think it has a very very good life and also a very long.
My old cat died 2 years ago, it was 21 years.

Have a good day

Agnès

So sorry for you family, losing a pet is a sad event indeed. With four cats and two dogs here at camp Cook, Lord knows how my dear children will be if one was absent from our lives.

I totally feel your pain. I sometimes can't breath thinking about my Moses being gone. It (perfectly honest here) sucks more than my Mom having cancer. Is this terrible, yes and no. My thoughts with you~ Trish

We used to have a cat called Emma, too. She is in cats heaven for quite some time already, I'm sure she went to meet your Emma at the end of the golden ladder. Cats called Emmas are most wonderful beings ... but who am I to tell you ....
