I haven't been here as much as I'd like to be in the last few days. I was assaulted in January and Fayeroe died in February. I'm having some PTSD issues right now and don't feel that I can post very much as it brings both things back up. The police definitely think that my assaulter killed Fayeroe because I filed charges against him. Please keep us in your thoughts. Pat

I just wanted to Thank everyone for sending such lovely Birthday wishes for Chloeanne.  We miss her so much and this had made the day a bit easier knowing how many people care.  Thanks again and healing thoughts to everyone..  Kari

Dear Critters Family .. I wanted to ask each of you to keep one of my local best friends, Christina and her husband George, in your thoughts and prayers as their beloved kitty Herman passed away last week and they miss Herman very much.  Herman gave them 17 wonderful years and it was his time to head off to Rainbow Bridge to be with my kids and all of your's.

I appreciate each of your thoughtfulness as Christina and George travel this journey that all of us have gone through.

Thank You so much ....  Charles

Can’t believe it is August 2009!!! A day does not go by that I don’t think of The Girls and the INCREDIBLEY thoughtful and kind words and gestures from my Critters Family.

I know I’m late in responding, but I’m a Libra and procrastination is one of my challenges. Especially, when I’d prefer not to have to deal with something as painful as the loss of My Girls. Trying to describe my feelings to people I’ve never met, which includes two years of still grieving my loss, is huge. I trust my fur babies and critter families, all else … ?

To each and every one of you, that have read The Girls memorial, whether you posted or not, you still are part of my getting the hole in my heart healed. For those having been so generous to the point of sharing not only your loss and losses, but reaching out to me when I have been unable to do the same for you - A special, special thank you and blessing!!! Your kindness has not gone unnoticed. I so much inspire to be more like you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart!. Your warm best wishes and regards mean so such to me and I will be posting this message on each and every one of your guest book entries to let your fur baby know just how much they are missed and loved too by their families.

P.S. would be The Girls sent me Wiley Dog and I am so grateful. Can’t believe the solace and comfort his being here has made. He is growing up with stories about The Girls. In addition, a feral- BIG female black cat has taken a liking to him and besides “talking” all the time, eats and sleeps here day time and is out hunting at night. Gifts! - rabbit, birds or rodents anyone???


08-29-2009 10:18 PM -- By: Lisa,    Critters.com memorial:   Sheeba Memorial
Hello to all my friends at Critters,

Just wanted to stop by on my Sheeba's one month angelversary.  Things have been pretty good with some bad days in between.  The days that I think of her bring me happy memories and then tears knowing that I will not see her.  I must think of her often subconciously.  Earlier this week I had a dream that I had one day left with Sheeba and I could spend quality time with her doing whatever I chose.  Well I decided that Sheeba and I were going to spend a special day in New York City taking pictures and making just a few more special memories!! In the dream we boarded a train together heading for the city.   The strange part was that when the train stopped in the City and I went to get off there was no Sheeba!!!  I looked everywhere and never found her!  This was rough because I got so many messages out of this dream the biggest is that the reality of it is Sheeba is over at the Rainbow Bridge with all of her new found friends, she is in my memories but she is no longer able to be in my presence physically. 

The tears are flowing as I write this because I would love another day with my Sheebs!

Lisa

I would like to thank everyone who visited Bubble's page yesterday to wish her a Happy Birthday. I can't tell you how much it meant to me to know that you all cared enough to visit her. Thank you again.

xoxo Lynn


08-27-2009 10:40 AM -- By: Jeannine,    Critters.com memorial:   Snoopy Memorial
I got the call yesterday.  Snoopy's ashes were in, and I could go pick them up anytime.  The kids and I went about 2pm to get "him".  I didn't know what to expect.  The receptionist went in the back and came out a few minutes later with a brown paper bag with handles.  Inside was a green and gold tin with Snoopy's remains.  I pulled out the first envelope.  It was a sympathy card from the owners of the pet cemetary in Long Island where he was taken and cremated.  They have a Rainbow Bridge poem on the inside left page.  On the right, was their condolences and wishes of sympathy and healing.   I pulled out the next envelope, which was a certificate of cremation.  It was done on August. 17, 2009, 10 days after he passed.  I thought about going out there where he was to see him again and be there while his cremation was taking place.  After looking at the brochure, I saw that they actually have a little funeral home for animals where you may view them or have a little service.  If I'd known about this, I probably would've gone out there with my kids.  Maybe it sounds crazy (to non pet lovers and owners), but I felt and still feel like having some kind of memorial service for Snoopy because he was so special.  My family for sure would say -"She's nuts", if I'd done this.  Sorry Snoopy we didn't have a service for you, but now that I have your ashes, I will do something with the Louie's (our neighbors and Snoopy's friends) in the near future.  Sue and Ivy really miss you.  They still can't get used to the idea of coming out the side door and not seeing you there anymore. You'd start wagging your tail or let out one of your cute little howls to say "Hi!", and "I'm ready for some goodies!".  I LOVE YOU FOREVER SNOOPY. Till' we meet again.  Love, Mommy.

To: Everyone who remembered Bailey on his second Angelversary date and posted on his guestbook.

A very heartfelt Thank you! It did make the day a little easier knowing that he was thought of not only by his family but from the wonderful and caring people on critters.

Unfortunately I do not have the time I once did to come on here alot, but I do wish all of you well and I will keep you and your furbabies in my thoughts.

Thanks again!

Love, Linda and Bailey

 


08-21-2009 11:04 AM -- By: Carole Turner,    Critters.com memorial:   Maggie Mae Turner Memorial
Thank you so much Critters family. I am in such deep grief. I feel like I've been swept up by a big tidal wave...and it's not giveng in. My heart aches so deeply. After losing Ebony, Shabba Lou and now Maggie Mae...I am having such a difficult time. Tears...oh so many tears. This is awful! I cannot believe she's gone. All the why's, maybe someday we will know.

I am thankful I shared what time I had with my babies, and I'd do it all over again...a thousand times, but nothing can take away the heartache. I will visit each one of you, I promise. I have barely begun on Maggie's memorial...I feel lost...stuck, and just don't have the emotional strength right now.

I am picking up Maggie's urn today....she'll be home again. Please say a prayer for me. I love all of you. A very proud mom, Carole

08-19-2009 8:39 AM -- By: Cheryl Bradley,    Critters.com memorial:   Chloe Clover Memorial
Hello, this is a very late thank you to everyone who stopped by on Chloe's birthday, June 30th.  I thanked people there on my own guestbook page, and forgot that I could use this forum.  Too sad sometimes to think clearly. 

Thanks to  Laurie (lvingmemoryofallpigs) and Tani (with her sweet Mena Mae) for the lovely poems.  I have not been back to the sight until today, I apologize to you both for not thanking you, you had both left the poems after I had been to the sight that day.  I had some grieving time with Chloe and I left.  I have to do that sometimes, just too painful. Chloe's birthday was a hard day, and I had not cried so hard in so long.  The poems are beautiful, and again, thank you to all who came to say hi.  It meant so much.  Cheryl


08-18-2009 10:46 PM -- By: Lisa,    Critters.com memorial:   Norman Memorial
Just touching base.  Things are going okay although some days worse than others.  My husband told me that today our 6 y/o daughter asked him when we are getting Sheeba back!  That broke my heart because I really thought she understood exactly went on because she was at the vet with us when we put her to sleep.  Life seems a bit different It's missing one thing and that is my first daughter (Sheeba).  As much as she has left many memories that formed in the nearly 15 years it feels like alot more than 3 weeks since I've held her tight.

Our other dog who is almost 14, Coqui is doing okay I'm not really sure what he makes of this.  People ask me if he notices and my response is probably but he cannot verbalize his feelings but I know he's gotta miss her!!

Well gotta go I will visit again soon but I will be in and out over the next two weeks.

Thanks,

Lisa

I've tried, unsuccessfully, lately to post on the forum. I hope this one gets through.

Today is Fayeroe's 6 month anniversary and all I can think about is not knowing what killed her.....I keep seeing the picture of how she looked when I found her...she was lying there as if she were sleeping. I have no clues whatsoever.......Just a lonely day for us.

Pat

08-14-2009 5:54 PM -- By: Linda,    Critters.com memorial:   Bailey Memorial
Hello everyone,

I just want to say that I am thinking of all of you who have lost a furbaby either in the past or recently. I am feeling the pain somewhat again, Bailey's angelversary is coming up on the 20th. It is hard to believe that it is already two years!! Where has the time gone? I still haven't bought a nice urn for him, I still can't bring myself to do it and I feel horribly guilty. I promised myself I would do it before the holidays. Anyway, I know how difficult loss is, for those of you who have been on here for a while, thank you for giving me support from the beginning, it helped to know that people cared. For those of you who are new to this site, a BIG hug to all, you will get through this, no matter how hard it is at first. I took it one day at a time and just looked at his pictures over and over again. I smiled and laughed at the memories, and I cried alot. Time takes away most of the pain, but of course they will always be a part of your soul and your heart. I am just waiting patiently when it is my turn and I know that I will see Bailey again. Take care and hope that with each day that goes by brings all of you comfort and peace.

08-11-2009 5:24 PM -- By: Carole Turner,    Critters.com memorial:   Maggie Mae Turner Memorial
I am broken...my heart is shattered. Another angel...another goodbye. Ebony died April 21, 2007, Shabba Lou died one year and 70 days later, now another year and 42 days later...my dear Maggie Mae. There are few words.......just tears and a broken heart. It happens so quickly. Maggie's story will be told...in time.


08-11-2009 2:38 PM -- By: Ebony & Shabba,    Pet's name:   for their new RB angel Maggie Mae
Hello everyone, as some of you may know our beloved MIss Carole lost another of her fur babies today Miss Maggie Mae. Although I know Miss Carole will be working on a  new page for her little angel, please send your thoughts and messages to her sister Ebony Turner and/or brother Sbabba Lou Turner, as this came as a quite a shock  and she is still in tears ... remebering the life they shaerd together. Please stop by and let her know we're here for her, and we understand. Love Luna

Please say a prayer for my Rocky today he is having surgery on his teeth and I am so scared. Because he is old 14 yrs old and well I just need support. Thank you all


08-11-2009 11:10 AM -- By: ,    Pet's name:   
I ask everyone to remember Ebony and Shabba Lou Turner's mommy, Carole, in your prayers today. She had to say goodbye to her precious Maggie girl less than an hour ago. She's devastated, to say the least. May God bless you all. Thank you, Richard and Dollie.

08-10-2009 9:51 PM -- By: Leigh,    Critters.com memorial:   Little Bit Memorial
Hello all my freinds!  An update.  Miss Lizzies new higher dose of medicine seems so far to be working for her  but I dont want to get my hopes up too high as it takes time to see if this is going to last or not.  The seizures have quieted down to just some small peti mals right now and that  is a huge improvement over the grandmal cluster seizures.  I am worn out with stress and worry and of course my heart is torn again.  I dont think I will ever recover from the loss of Little  Bit  and now on top of this we have to worry about a young German Shepherd puppy who was   born of apparently  bad breeding and she will never know a life of no pain and now the seizures.  I wonder what next.  Its too   bad as she is such a   beautiful girl too.   Its not fair for her.  She was of a litter of 9 and I wish I could contact the other  buyers to see if they any of them have problems.  Although my vet told me that with the severity of her hips and the seizures and who knows what,  he would expect most of the litter to have issues.  He had never seen such  degree of  bad hips in his years of practice as Lizzie has.   We on the other hand will do what ever needs to  be done to help Lizzie have as much a normal life , painfree and all as humanly possible and she will stay loved!  She knows we love her too and she is always ready to kiss me to pieces!   Thank you all for your support and checking in and visiting with Little  Bits for me as I have not been able to for some time.  God  Bless all of you and your sweet little angel furbabies!

Leigh

Yesterday was my babys 8th angel day. It has been a long time since I held him in my arms. Not a day goes by that I don't remember how much he meant to me and how much I miss him. Keto is the best of me. He always knew my heart and will forever be with my soul. He completed my life and I await the day I see him again. I love you Keto, today and always.  Mmmie
