Bless beloved feline son Jules, and his Dad, as innocent, devoted and loving Jules deals with a future not of his own choosing.  I know Jules will remain with his Dad for all time, and will be there for him, in spirit, as surely as they have been and are there for each other throughout their shared life.  I am terrible at goodbyes, Jules, but I know you will look into your Dad's eyes one day soon, and he will know that your love will remain with him forever.  

For the very special Pat, bless Jules and his Dad, and grant them both some measure of peace, and strengh, at this difficult time.

Dear Critter's family:  One of my friends has learned that his cat, Jules, is dying. He and Jules are all they have...just one another. It really scares me to think of his being alone. Please send  the love and  the strength for my friend to say goodbye to the love of his life. Thanks, Pat

I am just writing to you all to please keep the animals, dogs, cats, horses,birds etc. that were caught up in the Moore/Oklahoma City tornado, in you thoughts and prayers.  These animals are normally the last ones they think about in rescues, but they need out prayers and help in any way you can.

I'd like to give thanks to Pat's crew of amazing and beloved Guardian Angels for watching over Pat and her earthbound crew.

I'd also like to give thanks to all of the special guardian Angels at Rainbow Bridge, who protected Barbara Garcia and her beloved Schnauzer Bouncy, during the terrible storm that devastated Moore, OK.  Find and watch the video Mrs. Garcia's interview with CBS.  God bless our amazing animal friends, they are so very, very special.  Our lives are made better in a million ways when we share them with these precious, irreplaceable souls.

Dear Critters Family: I am okay. I am about 200 miles from Moore, Oklahoma. As I'm sure you've seen on television, the loss of life and the damages are horrible in Moore. Please keep the victims and survivors in your prayers.

We have lost electricity, internet and satellite power here intermittently.I lost all of it last night so couldn't get to Critters or write my friends here. All my animals are fine. We don't have anymore 'warnings' here. Just severe storms.

To my family here  who have checked on me, thank  you so much. 

Pat and Crew

Bryce, my heart is broken every day when I wake up and not find you by my side. A piece of my heart will always be with you, my love.

Until we meet again.

Dear Critters Family: I have  very sad news today. Lacey died suddenly on Friday. She is 8 years old. I understand that most hens live to be 3-4 years old. Lacey was the highlight of our little family in the yard. She sang endless songs about her home and her friends. She was the first to grab a worm out of the freshly worked earth. I could hardly dig in a flower bed or garden because she stayed right under me waiting for a morsel.  Lacey is a Rhode Island Red and was, indeed, one of the most beautiful hens in our county. Her body was very plump and sturdy. She reminded me of my old aunts who had big bosoms and wore those beautiful rayon dresses when I was a child. Lacey was noble and yet always ready for a good laugh. I carried her around a lot and she always cocked her head and looked at me with her beady little golden eyes.

 A certain pizazz is gone now from us now.  I know Cagney and Thelma greeted her with love at The Bridge.  Send a litlle Critters love that her flight was   good when she left her earthly home..where we loved her so very much.

Louise won't leave the porch as Lacey preferred sleeping in a small dog crate and that is where Louise last saw her. I'm feeding and watering her there. In time I know she will accept that Lacey is gone   and be back to her foraging and singing. It's just really sad to see her sitting by the empty crate talking.

I will add her story and photos  to Cagney and Thelma's soon.  

 Pat, Pearl, Tim, Mike, Lita, Clementine, Dom and Dinah

Dear Critters Family: Just a note to let you know that some members are having trouble logging to Critters. Some can get it and can't post. Some can't get in at all. We wanted to tell you know if you wonder where we're at. We're here and we're trying to communicate. Pat, Tippy and Fayeroe

I would like to express my deepest appreciation to everyone who stopped by Molly's memorial on her (and Keyshah's) Angelversary.  Your visits and kind messages meant a great deal to me -- Thank You!  I also wish to take this opportunity to thank all of those who have continued to visit Molly's memorial over the past year or so and who offered their support while I have needed to be away from Critters to tend to my health.  Your support, friendship, and willingness to help keep Molly's memory alive has been appreciated beyond words.  I send my warmest wishes out to all those who have lost a beloved pet --- May you always know that there are people who understand and who care, and may you never doubt that your pets will always know how very much you love them.
Thanks Again & Best Wishes

I don't come to Critters much.  I think because it hurts to remember, but when I came here in 2009 when Misty Rose went to Rainbow bridge, I not only found others that were grieving their loss like me, but also made a lot of friends.  I keep telling myself I will come back to Critters and visit other Memorials, but time just passes and I seldom get here.  I know my two fur kids, Misty Rose in 2009 and Cuddles in 1994 both know I love and miss them and a memorial will never change that.   I know they are watching over me and will be waiting for me when my time comes.  I hope all who are new to Critters will take the opportunity to become friends with the others.  It really does help in the healing process.

I had to put my sweet Peanut down on Tuesday.  It was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do.  It breaks my heart that my husband wasn't able to be here since he's out of the country.  Peanut was our child, he had been with us since we started our lives together.  We Miss and Love You Peanut, rest in peace, sweet boy. xoxo

Maggie my heart is broken. Even though it's been 7 months it seems like just yesterday that we lost you so suddenly. I miss you so much and still cry when I think of you.

When you adopt a pet, two lives get saved by you.

The one you adopt and its replacement that gets rescued.

I lost my Sasha 4 days ago at the age of 14. I'm going to miss her big blue eyes and her sweet sheltie demeanor. She went in her pet bed. I'm supposed to be getting her ashes back today. Such grief I'm feeling.

Its been a week ago today at 11pm that we lost Lani...She had every bit of preciousness you could have in a dog...A lot of the pain has subsided but it still lingers a bit. We now remember all of the good moments about Lani because that's the way we remember her now..I still look out the window thinking shes running around the yard acting like a goof as usual =) definitely miss that lol..We still miss you girl and hope you are in a better place at "the bridge". Luv ya girl..

Dear Critters Family, "Old and New",

When my dog, Fayeroe, died, I was grief-stricken, broken, alone and cried 24 hours a day. I turned my computer on one day and Googled "grieving for a dog". came up and I came here. Fayeroe and I found a home at Critters. Had I not had the love and support of the wonderful people here, I don't know what I would have done. Later I added my wonderful "main man dog", Tippy, and he has been just as loved as Fayedy.

When I tried to talk  about Faye to my friends and family, they either didn't reply or changed the subject. I could not believe that life was going on when I had lost my best friend, Fayeroe. Here at Critters, everyone picked me up, let me cry and cried with me. I was heard.

One of the best part of my days, my hours, my nights, was turning my computer on and going to my email inbox because there might be a notification that Fayeroe's guestbook had a new message in it! And it was very, very rare that I didn't have at least one notification...some days 6-8 posts in her guestbook. I don't know if all of the people who supported us know how much that really meant to me. You kept me going. You   gave me strength. I love each and every one who helped us so much.

Fayeroe died in 2009 and Tippy, in 2001.  This is 2013 and it is just as important for me to be here now, writing welcome and sympathy messages as it was for me to receive those messages in 2009. It is just as important for me to "wish happy birthdays and angel days" now as it is to receive them for Fayeroe & Tip every year.

I still get excited when I get an email from Critters. I hope   as you find your home here with us at Critters that you will stop in and send   notes  to  new members and also those who welcome you.   Everyone needs   love and support.

Our welcoming "committee" is small now   but  we all have broad shoulders and open hearts.  xoxoxoxo Pat, Fayeroe and Tippy
