06-15-2010 9:16 PM -- By: Leigh, Critters.com memorial: Little Bit and Raven Memorial My freinds, We lost Raven yesterday , Monday, the 14th. . I have placed on along side with Raven here and in a few days I will somehow collect myself and tell you her story. She was taken from us by a cancerous kidney tumor. It was fast. I am also taken aback for the fact we lost our Little Bits on Jan 14, ( 2 years ago) and now we lost our sweet baby Raven June 14th, 2010. Please please visit often and help us thru this as you did for our first loss and I dont want to think of my poor Raven not thought of as much as Little Bitty, I know you understand. Those of you who know us ,know the tough times we have been thru lately , I pray this is the end as I cant take anymore. The little bit of my heart left after Little bits left is now departed with Raven and I am so very very empty without her. I love you all.

06-14-2010 11:30 AM -- By: Sally, Critters.com memorial: Chance Memorial
Father's Day will be this Sunday, the 20th. It will fall on the 2 month Angel Day for my boy Chance. My husband and I have no children and I would give him a card "from his boys". Now that may sound silly to some, but to us it was a sweet jesture.
We were returning home the other night in the middle of a terrific storm. The lightening was steady and close. Chance was always so fearful of storms and would become so aggitated. We always would check weather reports before leaving the house and if storms were in the forecast, we would leave him in the laundry room. That was his "storm shelter" and he seemed to be calm in there with no windows. Driving through the storm Saturday night, my husband commented that at least Chance couldn't hear this one. I think he could, but now he knows he is safe from any harm. That, my dear Critter friends, is why it's so hard for us to let go and trust the care of our sweet pets to someone else, even God. I just have to know that he is ok and know in my heart that his spirit is with us still. I love my 2 other fur babies and they love me. Their antics keep me going and cheer me everyday. I don't know how I would have managed this without them. Having them and Critters.com has been my outlet and I am so grateful for all of you here.

06-10-2010 4:29 PM -- By: Kelly, Critters.com memorial: Pearl Ann Memorial Hi Critter Friends, It's been just over 5 weeks since my Pearl Ann was taken from me. Each day does get a bit better, but I still cry myself to sleep at night. I can't close my eyes because all I see is her on the side of the road after I came over the hill. I still have her hair on the dashboard in my car and in her seat in my Durango. I can't let myself clean it. Her picture is still in front of me in my car, and her memorial is still set up in our livingroom. I miss my girl more than ever. Sitting at my desk here, I just wish I could touch her with my feet to rub her back, she was always sleeping under my desk here at work. I smell her collar and it still smells like her. Besides pictures that's all I have of her. I miss you dearly Pearly Girl, more than ever. x0x0x0x0x Mama

My Dearest Critters Family ... I just wanted to Thank You those of you who remembered my little boy Bob M a/k/a Bob Macaroni's First-Year Angelversary. Needless to say, yesterday was a sad day as Bob M is surely missed by me .. but sorely missed by Cupcake .. who .. as you know, grew up for 11 months with Bob M. They were the Best friends ever until Bob's passing.
Each of your kind words and thoughts are truly appreciated by me and I know by my girl Cupcake. I do know that Bob's little spirit is with us ... I just know it ... and I won't go into detail why .. but I know.
Thanks again .. and always know that each of you is so cherished by me. Charles
06-10-2010 12:17 PM -- By: From Dogster, Pet's name: Even though the industry is changing, arsenic-treated wood is still frequently sold for use in decking and outdoor flooring materials. You'll know it by the yellowish tint of the wood.
It is not advisable to feed your dog foods such as ice cubes, snacks or bones that he can eat directly off the treated wood. If you have such outdoor flooring, let your dog eat his burger on th grass.

06-08-2010 1:19 PM -- By: Rebecca , Critters.com memorial: Whisk Memorial Critters has helped me alot so far, and I am extremely thankful that I found this site. Since my Whisk went to sleep, I have not felt like doing anyrhing. I do not even feel like going to work, but unfortunately that I must do. I don't feel like reading or sewing or doing things that made me happy. I don't even feel like emails and internet. But critters has given me the will to start again. As sad and as difficult as it is for me, I visit Whisk's memorial everyday. And I make sure to visit Birthdays and Angelversity too, to pay my respects to others like me. My heart is still empty, but I am trying.
Thank you to everyone who has sent me kind, loving words of support. And thank you Critters.com. I love you Whisk - you will NEVER be forgotten!
Love & Prayers
Rebecca & Whisk
06-06-2010 9:55 AM -- By: Jon, Critters.com memorial: Circe (Kitty) Memorial
As the one year mark has passed since my Circe crossed over, I've decided to do what I've been thinking about doing for some time now, and that is to make her memorial a private special place just for the two of us. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your kindness and support during the past year, the most difficult time of my life. You all are truly wonderful and I wish the very best for each and every one of you.
06-06-2010 5:18 AM -- By: Lu, Critters.com memorial: Kiddy Zhang Memorial I'm also happy to find critters.com. Since Kiddy passed on unexpectedly in the early morning of May 18, most of my activities have been writing "Letters to Kiddy" to cope with the deep loss. I didn't know any online pet memorials site, so I posted my letters on my professional Web site. I was ridiculed and even attacked for writing the letters at an anonymous site. Saying goodbye to a 12-year daddy-daughter relationship with unconditional love has been extremely difficult. I'm happy to find this community. My Kiddy is playing happily with all of your fur-babies in the Bridge now...
06-05-2010 10:50 PM -- By: db, Pet's name: Bigfoot I lost my Bigfoot tonight. The home is so empty without her. She gave me joy beyond imagination.
06-05-2010 6:20 PM -- By: Tim, Critters.com memorial: Annie Girl Memorial I am so happy to find this site, I am truly loss without my Annie Girl, life is not the same without her, so was my partner for 13 years and I miss her so much, when does the hurt go away.
06-05-2010 6:44 AM -- By: Mychael, Critters.com memorial: Hunny Memorial I had another dream about Hunny last night!!! :)
06-04-2010 9:40 PM -- By: Leigh, Critters.com memorial: Little Bit Memorial To all my freinds and family here, As you all know, I have had a really tough time with the loss of my baby girl Little Bits, and since her passing, we have been through more rough times, more so than normal. With the murder of our nephew and other tragedys. Today I have another hardship to endure. When we lost our sweet Little Bitty, we were always comforted with her little sister, Raven. After many trips to our vet, tests and treatment attempts, we were told we are going to lose our sweet little Raven now. Its only been a hair over 2 years since we lost Little Bit and with Raven , we have had a little baby in our lives for 20 plus years. My Raven has a large nasty tumor that is not treatable with surgury on her left kidney. During our treatment plan, instead of the tumor reducing in size, it almost doubled in a weeks time in size. Raven is like Little Bitty, a toy poodle and only weighs 8 pounds. The tumor today is the size of a grapefruit. This will not take a long time. It will be soon. I have decisions to make again, I dont want to do this again!
I love each and every one of you and your sweet furbabies, I wanted to let you know what is going on. My life has turned upside down since Little Bits departure. Will it ever end. Now I have to find some strength somewhere and do it all over again. God the pain.
Bless each of you and your babies!
Leigh Mommy of Little Bit and Raven
06-04-2010 2:20 PM -- By: Sally, Critters.com memorial: Chance Memorial Last week I finally had the strength to clean the hair from Chance's brush. I placed it outside by the bird feeder thinking maybe the birds could use it for their nests. This morning I noticed a pair of cardinals with bits of Chance's hair and they were flying into a bush near the house. So one of god's creatures was able to provide for his little birds. I see this as proof that life goes on and we can find joy in the smallest things. Chance has been gone for over month and I can still bring up a mental image of him running in the back yard. He would always come running so fast when I would call for him, he was absolutely the prettiest dog I had ever seen. There will be no other like him for us.
06-03-2010 7:35 PM -- By: glenise, Critters.com memorial: Daisy~Mae Memorial I just wanted to mention, that if anyone ever gets a few extra minutes, every month there are pets under birthdays and angel days with a 0 date, for the day. for instance June 0, birthdate. This month, i believe there were a dozen or more. I usually try to catch them. I am afraid if they go unnoticed, people forget to visit. Thankyou to everyone who reads this. Thankyou for your time. Love to all, glenise & daisy
06-03-2010 7:02 PM -- By: Patt, Critters.com memorial: Gretel Memorial Thank you to every one who has visited Gretel's memorial pages. I continue to write, as it hurts so bad to be without her. Rebecca, I know exactly how you are feeling. I cry daily, sometimes softly, sometimes sobbing for my girl. I know that she is around me but I really want a sign from her that she is ok and that I'll be ok too. I have Dozer and I love him, but it is not the same. Our love is different for each of our Fur Babies. I had her in my life for 11 years and he's been with us for 6 months. Can't compare. I know the pain is lessening but it is still so prominent when I'm alone. The hurt of missing her unbearable at times.
Thank you every one for all of your kind words and support, I definitely need them. My sister commented on the lovely things people have written and Misty Rose's Mom's lovely pictures. It helps, believe me :-(
06-02-2010 11:45 PM -- By: Mychael & Hunny, Critters.com memorial: Hunny Memorial Monday evening I was outside and I asked Hunny to let me know that she was ok. last night I had a dream about her. :) my Hunny did just what I had asked her to do. I'm sure also she was checking on me o make sure I was doing ok too. But it was nice to spend time with her again. I just hated when I woke up, but I know she will be back soon!!! :)
06-02-2010 7:23 PM -- By: Lauvern, Critters.com memorial: Luke Memorial I want to say Thankyou to all who have visited and remembered Luke's 3rd. Angelversary .Thankyou for your kind words and support in the past three years. Your thoughtfulness is appreciated always.
06-02-2010 11:31 AM -- By: Rebecca , Critters.com memorial: Whisk Memorial It has not quite been a month since Whisk went to sleep in my arms and I am still having a very very hard time. I cry almost every night, to myself. When will this heart wrenching pain leave? I have other kitties at home that need me too, but I haven't been the same for weeks. It this normal? Am I ok mentally? Does anyone else feel this way too? I love you Whisk and I know you will always be in my heart, but please help me ease this pain.
06-02-2010 9:29 AM -- By: Kent Holse, Critters.com memorial: Ginger Memorial
Thank you to everyone for all your support. This is a wonderful place to remember our furry, feathered and scaled friends at a time of loss. Life is short and all our loved ones will be waiting for us when the time comes. Until then remember them fondly, maybe even with the occasional tear but do remember them and they will always be with you.
06-01-2010 11:52 PM -- By: Patt, Critters.com memorial: Gretel Memorial Just want to say thank you for all of the comfort and support that you all have been giving me in the loss of my Gretel. It's so hard but having you all as support really helps. I still cry daily - it's the little things that set me off...she should be getting her puppy snacks with Dad, the thunder would have had her in bed with us.
I try to write a little something daily to Gretel. I find it cathartic and soothing.
Thank you all again, you are so appreciated and loved by me .
06-01-2010 11:58 AM -- By: Phatgirls mom, Critters.com memorial: Phatgirl Memorial Thank you to everyone that stopped by on Phatgirls 3 year Angelversary! Our friends here at Critters mean so much to us!
06-01-2010 6:11 AM -- By: Mychael, Critters.com memorial: Hunny Memorial My Hunny has been gone a week now but it seems like forever. I come here everyday many times a day to visit her. The people that have came by her Memorial and the things they have said to me has been a great comfort, and I thank you all for the kind words you have put there. I still feel so lost without her. But, as many of you i'm sure you know what I'm talking about. I still find myself crying, but I know in time and as I heal the tears will stop. As they say...."Time heals all". I also want to thank the While Angel again for sponsoring Hunny for me. That was really kind of you. :)
05-31-2010 11:41 PM -- By: jules, Critters.com memorial: Butler Memorial been thinking i want to say this in butler's honor. we all are on critters for the same reason we loved and love our children. it does not matter , a color, a breed, short, tall, cat or dog. we simply loved and love them. i never see breeds or colors i see the love each of us have towards them. after all they never judged us as humans by origions they just loved us. something to think about.
hugs to all,
jules and butler
05-31-2010 12:28 PM -- By: Richard, Critters.com memorial: Dollie Memorial I posted a poem that I wrote. I'm sorry if it offended someone.
