10-18-2010 11:56 PM -- By: Nancy Kelly, Critters.com memorial: Picky Memorial I lost my precious precious beloved Picky on 9/9/10. I had to send him Home. AFter 15 years together, I had to make the heartbreaking choice of sending him home. Picky was my life. I had become bedbound for the last year of my life, and he was with me every day and through everything. He was my constant companion. Always by my side 24/7. I am in utter agony. I am waiting for life to get better, but its not. And it kills me everytime I think of Picky and his death. I know he is at a golden place of Rainbow bridge, but will someone tell that to my heart? Its shattered into a million peices.
Picky I miss you beyong anything. I love you, Momma
10-10-2010 12:30 PM -- By: Sarah, Pet's name: Jasper It's been a month since our dear Jasper left us for Rainbow Bridge. The pain is still very much present as we try to press on with our lives. I don't think we'll ever get over the loss but I have to remind myself how lucky we were to have him for so long and that he did have a full life. So many of the critter's family pets have had untimely deaths which breaks my heart when I read about the circumstances. I pray for everyone who has lost a precious part of their family and give heartfelt hugs to all whom have shared their condolences with me. Jasper lives on in my heart and soul.

10-06-2010 6:45 PM -- By: Marlene, Critters.com memorial: Sammie Patterson Memorial Patricia,
Right now you need to cherish the time that you have with your fur baby. We had that same amount of time with our sweet Sammie. There will be many, many tears, but the most amazing love will fill your heart.
While it may seem trite, the only thing that works to heal the searing pain is time. It's been almost 2 years since our little girl passed on to the RB and I still experience moments of heartbreaking sadness. However, I now have moments of pure joy when I think of her. I've even felt her brush by my leg.
Sharing your feelings here at Critters can really help. All here have lost their fur babies and know the kind of pain you experience.
Hold your baby, give him many gentle hugs and tender kisses.

10-04-2010 6:22 AM -- By: Henry, Critters.com memorial: Bailey and Gretchen Bleichert Memorial Patricia it is not easy and I do not think anyone that really loves their baby will ever totally get over it. I know I have not but spend as much of the time you have with him, and give him as much love as you can. It may hurt more in the beginning as it did for me but I now use all the memories I have to help me and I even smile at times when I think of them. He loves you very much and will never forget you.

09-13-2010 2:35 PM -- By: pat and fayeroe and tippy, Critters.com memorial: fayeroe Memorial Dear Critters Family, I just received word that my best friend, Dale, said goodbye to "Cooter" and sent her off to Rainbow Bridge. Cooter was 21 years old. She was a mix. She was black and white. She had a very full life. Cooter lived with Dale's parents and when his Mom and Dad died, Dale took her in. I called her "Her Cootness". She knew she was royalty. In her long life she had to put up with three dogs, Dixie, Forest and Batman. She was their storm alerter. Cooter always knew a storm was coming before anyone else did. Dale let her in the house and she slept in his bedroom closet until everything settled back down.
Her Cootness didn't suffer fools and there was a mockingbird in her yard that fit that description to a T. Lady M spent each summer flying down and pecking Cooter on the head and screaming in her ear. Lady M. always raised a nest of babies in a tree that was by the yard. One day Lady M. had been especially mean to Cooter and Dale could tell that Coot had a plan. She walked over to the corner of the yard and sat down. In a few minutes Dale saw her grab a starling. She marched back over to where Lady M. sat on the fence (in her patrol mode) and dropped that dead starling in front of Lady M. and more or less said "you're next if you don't leave me alone". Lady M. never dive-bombed Her Cootness again. :-)
Dixie was waiting for Cooter at the Bridge. Dixie died when she was 10 and Her Cootness didn't have much use for the younger kids on earth and she wasn't looking forward to all of that wagging and licking and drooling that Dixie is famous for. But she supposed she could put up with it now. Dixie is a black lab and the love of Dale's life.
Fayeroe and Tippy waited with Dixie to greet Cooter. After all the greetings and after they showed Cooter where the best streams are and where the bad starlings hand out, Her Cootness settled down for a little rest.
Later Dixie and Fayeroe invited Cooter over for a snack of white bread. Dixie had crossed The Bridge and grabbed it out of some lady's shopping bag.
R.I.P. Her Cootness 1989-2010.
09-11-2010 12:20 PM -- By: pat and fayeroe and tippy, Pet's name: Hi, everyone. I've noticed that what I have stored in my poetry file comes out bigger here than it is in my file. The font can be much larger. I've tried going in and reducing and at times it still has a mind of it's own here. I'm sorry if it is an inconvenience for anyone. Pat
09-10-2010 1:22 PM -- By: Phil, Critters.com memorial: Inky Memorial I want to second Kent's comment from 09-08-2010. Losing Inky has been heart breaking for me and even six weeks later I still find myself upset and hurt by the loss.
The folks here who have lost a beloved pet have been so supportive and helpful it has made a huge difference in helping me cope. "Thank you" just doesn't begin to cover how much it means to me.
09-08-2010 2:15 PM -- By: Kent, Critters.com memorial: Ginger Memorial It's been quite some time since visiting my Ginger or any of my critters friends. I want to thank all of you for your kind support through a very rough time. Such support is priceless and will never be forgotten. Feel free to visit and leave a kind word anytime. God bless all of you and your friends.
09-06-2010 8:56 PM -- By: Annette Massa-Bogath, Critters.com memorial: Stimpy and Willow Memorial Hi Everyone!
It's been a long while since I have been able to come visit all my very good and caring friends here at Critters, and I hope you are all doing well and coping with great strength to help you get through such difficult times. I just wanted to tell everyone that yesterday my beautiful 15 year old kitten, Willow has passed away. She has now joined her brother Stimpy in Heaven where I am sure she has found the peace she so deserves. Willow was my caring, affectionate, loving cat I had been blessed with, and I will, without a doubt, miss her greatly in so many ways. My heart is broken beyond repair, but I will find comfort in knowing she is no longer suffering and plays alongside her brother and loving Heavenly family. Please, all of you, visit my beautiful Willow's memorial and feel free to leave a comment, as I always find comfort in your caring words. Thank you and God Bless you and your amazing angel babies.
09-06-2010 5:03 PM -- By: Suzie, Critters.com memorial: KETO BOY Memorial My critters family, please welcome Lex Luthor as he crossed the Rainbow Bridge Thursday. His mommie is my cousin and she needs us now. Thank you family. Loce in Christ

09-01-2010 1:22 PM -- By: NATALIE , Critters.com memorial: DaVinci Memorial Dear Critter friends- I just wanted to let my critter family know that i am back from my trip to Ireland, and the Isle of Man( they should have an Isle of Dog/cat,bird, etc) lol, anyway- all because of Criiters I was able to meet a friend, who i became very close to over the last few years, Eleanor, Chara's Mum!! I went to her home town of Kilkenny, and it was just beautiful, not only to see it, but to be there and visiting Ellie.Who would have thought that in the sorrow and pain I ,and all of us have experienced, that i was able to have this very special occasion happen.Somehow there are some people I am drawn to, or perhaps its timing as well, but I was looking through the newer memorials and saw Chara's page.I write Chara's Mum, Eleanor, signing her guest book, then we became friends throughout some time.I told Ellie that I might be coming that way, as I have friends in the iSLE OF MAN, and that i usually go through ireland. ellie told me to come by and have a visit. I never thought it would really happen, but it did. I believe out of everything difficult in our lives, is a way of something good coming out of it, and this was my-good!! I am heartbroken over the loss of my fur babies, and found critters, through a friend, and I was able to do something for my most beautiful babies. They in return, gave me this beautiful experience, and it was their way of telling me," Mom, we are here, we can't be w/ you now, but we want to let you know how much we love and miss you mom! We want to give you something, a sign to let you know, and this was it, this was their way of telling me, they're here and watching over me. So as i left for my trip, i was outside. i looked up at the sky and saw 2 beautiful Rainbows!! I just couldn't believe it because i HAVN'T SEEN a rainbow in quite some time, and now Im leaving, and there are 2 rainbows there!! I arrived and we had a wonderful time, Ellie taking me around, and going to" Kilkenny Castle, and other spots, what a great time! As we were there, we Skyped a few of our Critter family friends, Laura, and Lisa, Dale and Puck Lewis's Mum.Then, Ellie took me up to the top of the hill, close to her house, it is a magnificent sight, just soo beautiful and peaceful. we were there, and I was getting ready to leave, Ellie and i looked, and what did we see!! We saw 2 gorgeous rainbows up there in the sky!! OMG! i just couldn't believe it, it was the same as i saw back home right before i was leaving for my trip. It was Chara and DaVinci right there, over the rainbow saying hello to us!! Letting us know that they are ok, they are good friends and that they love us and miss us very much, it was their way of telling us!! We had tears in our eyes-knowing this was the case, and it was just soo special. i did take pictures and will post them on Davinci's page just as soon as I can- I hope you will all take a look and see what I am talking about. I love you all, my critter friends, and my cRITTER FAMILY, THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME THROUGH THIS MOST DIFFICULT TIME IN MY LIFE, losing my babies has been pure pain in my heart, pain like Ive never known, more than most people really, maybe that isn't right, but my babies were always there for me, more than anyone in my life, such unconditional love, and this was their way, thank you soo much to all my friends who know, and understand. xoxoxoxoxox Love always Natalie- DavInci's Mum!!

Dearest Critters Family ... I hope no one minds me writing this .. but Karen ... Rameses' mom is having eye surgery tomorrow .. so will you please send positive thoughts your way for Karen. Karen has been a friend to many of us here on Critters .. so I believe we have to "stick" together and send our prayers and good thoughts Karen's way.
Get well soon Karen ... your Critters family is waiting for your return .....
08-22-2010 5:45 PM -- By: Natalie, Critters.com memorial: DaVinci Memorial
Hi Everyone, I see my picture of DaVinci did not come up, however, maybe it's because I'm in Ireland!!! I can't believe that I'm actually visiting Ellie, Chara's Mom- from who is from Ireland , and I'm here in Ireland at her home, all because of Criiters.This is an amazing experience, and I'm just soo happy to be here, but most of all I want to thank our babies, DaVinci and Chara, if it not for them, we would have never met and they are the ones who brought us together.I think that tis was a way of telling us, how much they love us, and they know how much they are loved and truly missed!! I just want to say, I love you DaVinci, and thank you for this very special gift, also Chara, beautiful babies, missed and loved forever and always!!! And thank you my very special friend, critters and all my critter friends, xoxoxoxoxxo Love Natalie!!!
08-22-2010 4:10 PM -- By: Michael Kendrick, Critters.com memorial: Gizmo Memorial Today 1 year ago I lost my dearest friend, Gizmo. Since his passing things just haven't been the same. Today was a day of sadness of course, but it also brought smiles to my family and me, as we sat around sharing our memories of Gizmo and the joy he gave each of us. I want to thank everyone within the Critters.com family who gave there love and support for my family and me during our time sadness. Not a day goes by without thinking of my precious Gizmo. I feel in my heart that he would want me to get another pet. Not a replacement, but something to ease the pain. I want Gizmo to know he can never be replaced.
08-22-2010 8:51 AM -- By: Janice G., Critters.com memorial: Duke Memorial Hello all my critters friends and family,
I want you all to know that I have not forgotten you. You mean a lot to me as before, but I have been going through a lengthy trial of up's and down's (mainly down's). Please forgive me for not spending much time on critters as I use to. It doesn't mean that I don't care or that I have forgotten you b/c I haven't. Hugs to all.
