02-04-2011 6:11 PM -- By: Marlene, Critters.com memorial: Katie Memorial Thanks to everyone at Critters who have been so supportive in the last year, since we lost our Buddy. Your words of encouragement and sympathy have helped us more wthan we can say. Thank you.
02-03-2011 5:12 PM -- By: Shari, Pet's name: Kadee Lynn It has just been over 1 week since we had to put our 13 year old yellow lab to sleep. Thanks so much for all the kind words and thoughts. This sight has made the grieving process a little easier. I miss Kadee very much - but I know she is no longer suffering and waiting for us at the Rainbow Bridge!! Till we see you again Kadee Lynn!!!
02-02-2011 8:22 PM -- By: pat, tippy, fayeroe, teddyjack and pearl, Critters.com memorial: fayeroe Memorial Dear Critters Family, Pearl disappeared last Wednesday and this Monday I gave up the hunt for her. I searched a quarter mile each way up and down the creek to no avail. She was very scared of others but I did go to every house and show them her photo. No one had seen her.
I made her a memorial page in Fayedy's pages. Two losses in two months is hard. She and Fayeroe loved one another so much so I know that Faye met her and everything is allright now.
02-02-2011 5:25 PM -- By: Scottie, Critters.com memorial: Ace Memorial It has been only 3 days since Ace has passed. I am struggling to keep a dry eye all day long. My heart feels so empty and I miss him so much. Everything I see reminds me of him and my heart aches. I think I see him or hear him when I get home. My other pet, a cat named Galena, misses her big brother too. I am eaten up with guilt because I did not get to say goodbye. I miss Ace so much and I would give everything to see him again for just a few minutes. Thnak you all so much for your kind words and support.

01-24-2011 11:48 AM -- By: Stan, Pet's name: Kelia It has only been 3 days and the pain is still unbearable.
01-19-2011 4:43 PM -- By: Denise, Critters.com memorial: Katie Rae Memorial It has been one week today since our sweet Katie went to be with all of your precious fur babies at the Rainbow Bridge. We have gotten so many responses from such caring people and I want to thank each one of you (some day I will have time to respond individually). All of your kind words and prayers have not gone unheard and we really appreciate each visit to Katie's page. I am so thankful for the 9 wonderful years God gave us and I will never forget her. I still have not been able to move her food and water dishes or clean up her leftover crumbs. It means too much to me to move them out. Again, thank you all for the kind words and support and thank you to the creators of this site and to Debby for sending me here.

01-18-2011 8:02 PM -- By: Kathy Geipel, Critters.com memorial: Snowy Memorial I will never forget how I was feeling three years ago today, as I sat looking through my tears at the computer screen, making a memorial for my sweet Murphy, who we had to put to sleep earlier in the day. I was devastated for weeks, and this site allowed me to talk to others who were feeling the same thing. It was a God send, and I will be forever grateful to all those who helped me so much.
I will say that getting a new puppy helped me alot. I didn't really want to replace Murphy, but the care and training of a new baby helped to distract me from my grief.
My husband says that Jenny , our now 3 year old golden is alot smarter than Murphy ever was, but I have a special place in my heart for my first golden, Murphy. There will never be another one like him for me!
For those of you who are just beginning the grieving process, you are at the right place! Just know that things will get much better, and now I can smile when I remember my Murphy! Amazing how many times our Jenny does the exact same things as Murphy used to do. Makes us smile and remember Murphy everyday, but with laughter instaed of tears!! Miss you Murph!!
01-15-2011 1:36 PM -- By: AJ, Critters.com memorial: PATCHES Memorial A co-worker told me about this site and for that I am grateful. It has been a cathartic experience making the memorial for Patches and at the same time allowing people to grieve with us.
I found him on my living room floor right after midnight on Jan. 10. I saw him take his last breath as if he waited for someone to be with him. He was always thoughtful that way. Yes he was a pit bull but was a gentle sort. He was raised by cats, and had many playmates along the way. Many people admired his looks since he resembled "Petey" the dog, of Our Gang fame. Wherever we went he was always the center of attention. So much so, I chose sometimes to walk him in the wee hours of the mornings just to avoid the gawks and questions that would interupt his walks.
I can remember he occasionally would beg for the food we were eating with those eyes ( the black patch) and to bolster the request would go to his basket which held his toys and would return with ( he felt) one of his prize possesions and lay it at our feet. We laughed every time he "bartered" and sometimes rewarded him when the pile grew by 3 or 4 bones ,ropes or balls.
All I can say is thank God for gracing us with Patches presence and for giving us the wisdom to spoil him while he was here.
We love you Patches. We'll see you again one day!!
01-09-2011 9:21 PM -- By: Shannon Zitella, Pet's name: Princess Zitella In one day, I cannot believe my angel is gone. There is a void in my heart that I will never be able to fill. I can't believe that she will never be coming through my door, wondering what momma is doing, pawing me for attention, jumping on my shoulder, looking at me with unconditional love. I don't know how to deal with this pain, but I hope you know how much momma loved you angel. You were the best kitty ever, I miss you so much.
01-08-2011 8:06 PM -- By: Victoria Garner, Critters.com memorial: Angel Memorial I feel so sad today, because I realized that I am starting to forget my darling Angel. Not him, himself, but the way he felt to touch, and the smell and sound of him. I know that this is part of the healing process, but still it makes me feel so sad.
01-08-2011 11:52 AM -- By: Christine, Angel Missy Bear, Buddy Boy & kitties, Critters.com memorial: My Sweet Missy Bear Memorial from our family to yours, we wish you & yours a blessed 2011. When our dear fur babies leaves our loving arms, memories begin to fill our hearts and make us smile again. May you always know that they are watching over us. I hope that you began to love again and brought in another paw/whisker to touch your life again as I did. ~blowing kisses to your beloved fur babies~

12-31-2010 1:22 PM -- By: pat, fayeroe, tippy & teddyjack, Critters.com memorial: fayeroe Memorial Dear Critters Family, It is coming up on two years since Fayeroe died and I came here. All I did was Google "pet grief support sites" and several popped up. I went to three before I found Critters. I joined one of those three but "didn't feel it". I came here last. I could never explain, to anyone who hasn't experienced it, the love and caring that I found at Critters. I was so grief stricken that I thought I was going to die. Finding Fayedy dead in the backyard is one of the biggest shocks I've ever had in my life.
You all gathered around me and held me up as hours went by. Then days went by and then it was a month and everyone posted on her guestpage....and now it is almost two years. I miss her so much. So much.
A church bought the property that I live on and will not be a "landlord" after May 1st, 2011. I will move back to the ranch in Oklahoma. I buried Fayeroe here and I've been having nightmares about leaving her. I talked to Charles and it really helped.
I know that Fayeroe is in heaven with all of our babies. I KNOW that she is healthy and happy and Tippy and the entire family are with her. Along with all of the wonderful pets that have passed through Critters...Cremation didn't enter my mind in my shocked state that next morning. I refused to have an autopsy done and I wanted to bury her immediately so she would be free from her earthly home.
I know that I can do this and I know that I am going to need lots of help doing it. I sorta expected the sale was going to go through and started packing a long time ago. But the reality is here now and I have to deal with it.
Thanks to every single soul here who said "one word" to me when Fayeroe died. I know that I could not have survived my grief had I not had all of you. Everyone of you.
To all the families who have come here since I came, you could not be in a better place. There is so much love and understanding at Critters. We will all continue to hold you in our arms while you grieve.
Pat, Tippy, Fayeroe, Amsu and TeddyJack
12-27-2010 7:34 AM -- By: Shaun, Critters.com memorial: Snoopy Memorial This was my first christmas without 'Snoopy' in fourteen years and it was such a difficult time. Even though Snoops wasnt here to share Christmas with me I still mamaged to buy him a Christmas present and a card to say thank you for all the great times we had together on this earth and tell him how much I really miss him. I got to spend some time on Christmas with a friend's relative dog. I got to tell him how much I loved Snoops and how much I miss him. My heart was aching so much and I could not believe how it felt so much like snoops whom I was sharing my love with. Each year I intend to buy Snoops a present just to let him know that my love for him will never ever fade. I hope that the wait to see him once again will not be too long as this is my heart's desire. I wish everyone at critters.com a happy and blessed New Year in 2011. I would also like to take this time to thank you very much for your prayers and kind words of support. God Bless.
12-26-2010 6:42 PM -- By: Jessica, Pet's name: Mickey My first Christmas with out you Mickey, very hard. The one bright side of it was when momma got up to watch TV the show I was watching the guys name on it was Mickey Williams. That touched my heart. I miss you terribly, I wish you didnt have to leave. We are supposed to get about 10 inches of snow by tomorrow, you'd be having the best time ever if you were still here outside in the snow. We didnt get any snow before you left. Not a day goes by that I dont think about you and all your silly habits. I crinkle up the plastic bottles like you used to love to see if your going to come running for it, even though I know your gone, it's still to hard to accept. It's been over a month now and it still feels like yesterday. Momma isnt crying as much as she was though, only ever now and again. I remember how you hated when your momma was upset. You'd always put your head on my lap or jump on my lap and give me kisses! Knowing that we will be together again one day gives me some comfort. I know you'll be right there to greet me when my time has come and we'll be together forever! I love you more than life my angel and I miss you even more. I'll be seeing you my baby boy!

12-25-2010 5:19 PM -- By: , Critters.com memorial: Dollie Memorial Hey Little Sugar Bear. Well, Christmas has come and almost gone now. It's snowing a little outside. I wish you could see it. And then I get to thinking, you probably can.. ;) It doesn't matter how long it's been, it still not the same without you Dollie. To say that I miss you just doesn't sound like enough. Your smell. Your breath. Your warmth. Your everything. Gone. But I am So thankful for Christmas Baby. Because Jesus came to live and freely give His life for me, and because I accept and believe that, I know that I'll live forever with Him one day. And I believe with all of my heart that you'll be there, too. And as thankful as I am for every day of life, I pray every day that it'll be soon. I hope you enjoyed your Christmas Dollie. I'm sure it couldn't have been finer being in His presence. I love you sweetheart. Wait patiently on me. I'll see you soon. All of my love, and then some, daddy
