11-12-2010 11:08 PM -- By: Sandra, Pet's name: Mickey I lost Mickey almost two days ago. He had a history of cardiac issues - of which I was getting him ultrasounds for - he also had had and been treated for hemobartinella felis (a mycoplasma blood infection) about 8 months ago that had cleared - I came on Thursday to find him listless on the floor, a low heart rate, low temp and pale gums...I rushed him to my work (I am a vet nurse) and took radiographs, bloodwork and got him on O2 - he had to be transferred to emergency - he was severely anemic and we found out he was bleeding internally in his abdomen...I am still waiting for the necopsy report. I work the field and see this everyday - but this is my baby boy. I feel guilty, sad and angry and cannot eat, sleep or stop crying. I am devestated..he was only two, how do you cope? This is the first pet (my pet - not my families) that I have lost, please help or stop by his post and say some kind words...I miss him so much...

11-03-2010 3:42 PM -- By: Julia, Critters.com memorial: Gus Memorial It's been about 2 weeks now since my sweet baby Gus went to heaven. I miss him everyday and still catch myself calling his name at home. My black lab Juliette still watches the door wondering when you will come back. I tell her you are in heaven with all the other dogs and are safe and happy. This seems to calm her down and she is happy again. Mommy loves you so very much! See you soon... ♥

Especially now going into the holiday's. I guess it is because of the holiday's? I don't know but I still miss both my babies. Here a special present to all of you From Rocky, who are having that difficult time. We pray for you all.
To My Family
I just wanted to let you know that I made it home.
The journey wasn't an easy one, but it didn't take too long.
Everything is so pretty here, so white, so fresh and new
I wish that you could close your eyes and that you could see it too.
Please try not to be sad for me.
Try to understand God is taking care of me...
I'm in the shelter of His hands.
Here there is no sadness, no sorrow, and no pain.
Here there is no crying and I'll never hurt again.
Here it is so peaceful when all the angels sing.
I really have to go for now... I've just got to try my wings
Please feel free to stop by and visit my baby Rocky, he loves all your messages you post to him.

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 6:04 PM -- By: Charles, Critters.com memorial: Sammy Memorial

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.
