Dear Critters Family ~

Our beautiful boy, Pumpkin, lost his battle with Chronic Renal Failure today.  We assisted him to The Rainbow Bridge at 3:40 PM and already miss "our little lion" so much.  We know he met up with his beloved Taffy, Patches and Angel...and we know he already has so many wonderful Critters friends to surround him with love.  Although we knew this day was coming, Heaven knows it is devastating.  RIP sweet boy. 

xoxo Joy




09-09-2009 8:51 PM -- By: Suzie, memorial:   KETO BOY Memorial
Thanks to all my critters family for remembering Keto Boy's angel day. Your words touch my heart and help my pain. I wish I  would stop dreaming. The nights are so long and my sleep so short. I tell myself all the positive things but my heart just can't heal yet. I am so sorry I had to make that decision that day. I can't forgive myself or tell him Im sorry enough. My life is forever changed because Keto was a part of it and it is forever empty without him. Keto was the best  of me. He was with me through s many bad times and with him I could face anything. He was my best friend and I am lost without him. I pray my heart heals soon.

09-09-2009 5:53 PM -- By: Jeff and Joe Ann, memorial:   Christian Memorial
We would like to thank everyone who visited Christian's memorial.  Today makes 1 year and it is still so very hard.  We miss him so very much, but we know that one day we will all be together and until then we know that he is taken care of by his friends at Rainbow Bridge on his Angel Day.  Thanks again to all.

09-09-2009 5:08 PM -- By: Michele - Ginger's Mommy, memorial:   Ginger Memorial
Thanks to everyone who visited Ginger on her Birthday.  Bless all of you for the courage and strength that you have given me through these tough times.

I know that I have missed many birthdays and angelversaries, and I apologize for that.  My computer at home is broken, so I am not able to visit like I used to.  I keep everyone of you in my thoughts and prayers daily, and hope that you all are doing ok.

Love, Michele - Ginger's Mommy

I hope my critters family are doing well. It has been a hard week. I have fallen back in my depression and find it hard to laugh again. Its been so many months since my angel left me and I thought I was getting better. But, a cloud has been over me and I can't seem to let it go. I adopted another baby name Sybil. She looks nothing like my Keto. I thought because she is so loving and has many of his charectoristics that it would help. I already love her, but, everytime I look at her all I can think is she looks nothing like my baby. She follows me around and never leaves my side. She give me kisses and cuddles with me at night. And yet, I am still left so sad and empty. So many regrets of my decision. So many thoughts of what I should have done. My heart is so broken. I need him so much. I miss him so much I could die to be with him again. I haven't come very far have I?

09-05-2009 1:01 PM -- By: Elizabeth, memorial:   Roo Memorial
 I just want to thank everyone that has commented on the loss of my baby yesterday. It was the hardest day of my life to date to go through that with her and say goodbye for the final time. It really helps to see your kind words and support of understanding what I went through.... and continue to go through. I looked at your memorials and my heart goes out to everyone on this site who has lost their loved one. Thank you all so much again, it meant a lot to me... and Roo...

 I just created Roo's memorial today... she was laid to rest around noon today. I lost my baby to Lymphoma cancer - she was only 6 1/2. Very tough day for me... my life will never be the same without my Roo. I'm waiting on her ashes to place in a special Urn for her. I love and miss you dearly Roo!!!! <3

09-02-2009 12:06 AM -- By: pat, memorial:   fayeroe Memorial
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

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

08-30-2009 11:21 PM -- By: AunteeMz, memorial:   Cinderella and ToTo Memorial

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, 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!

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.

08-27-2009 10:40 AM -- By: Jeannine, 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, 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, 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, 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.




08-18-2009 12:33 PM -- By: pat and fayeroe, memorial:   fayeroe Memorial
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.


08-15-2009 6:54 PM -- By: Lauvern, memorial:   Luke Memorial
