05-04-2008 3:15 AM -- By: Linda (Ceeses's mom), Critters.com memorial: Ceese Memorial Huge thank yous to those of you who sent messages to my dad. I was with him tonight and he could not read them in front of me. I think it's a guy thing--no tears in front of his daughter. I can tell it means so much to him and helps him feel comforted. He is desperately searching for a good picture of Custer for me to post and I suspect in a week or so he will be writing his own story about Custer. Again, thank you. It means so much to me and dad too. He has a had a very rough year and this was another very difficult blow. I love you folks. LInda
05-04-2008 1:29 AM -- By: Ebony, Critters.com memorial: Ebony Turner Memorial ...as my heart continues to both bleed and mend from the loss of my precious "Labrador Angel" Ebony, I will try to live every day like it is my last, which is what I learned from her and her sudden passing. I miss my girl no less than I did on April 21, 2007. I will never be the same. I am sure the loss of my dear girl will be an "endless" aching in my heart. Although I wish we would have had more time, I would like to say that my heart aches for those who were not able to share their precious ones as long as I did Ebony, and I also feel joy when I know there are those that were able to enjoy their precious ones for a longer time than I did Ebony. May God bless you all.
I would like to share this beautiful poem with you.
You are far away, but, I can feel you...I can see you in eveything I do.
You exist in my every breath, in every beat of my heart, even when I close my eyes, I see your face and feel you near.
Your presence is a tangible thing...yet as hard to grasp as the air.
Still, I can feel you; the softness of a petal, a soft wind on my cheek, a warm ray of sunshine, in my vision... a distant light that ever draws me near. -- author unknown
05-03-2008 1:30 PM -- By: Linda (Ceese's mom), Pet's name: There is a very sad 79 yr old man (my dad) who taught me to love and respect all criiters. He's had serious health problems and so does his wife. He lost his 18 yr old cat a few months ago and a dog he saved years ago yesterday. He is devastated. I know how kind words from you folks can help and I would so appreciate it if you would send him some support. Custer has a memorial that I quickly created yesterday but does not have a picture yet. If you folks could search Custer's name and sign his guestbook it would mean so much to my dad. He needs more support than I can give him right now. Linda
05-03-2008 12:55 PM -- By: Hawkeyes Family, Critters.com memorial: Hawkeye Memorial The kids have been charged with animal cruelty. It just hurts that they took Hawkeye away from me. I feel like I never got to say goodbye to Hawkeye. If Hawkeye wasent posined I would still have him and Kodi. Because of this all happening Kodi is now with a new family. I am sure he is loving his new family and having a great time.
I am wanting to make a memorial for my sweet boy Max as well. I am not sure if I am ready to. Losing Max was really hard for me. After spending 9 years with him.
05-03-2008 12:29 PM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Hawkeyes family, it breaks my heart that you lost two precious furbabies and felt you had to let Kodi go too to keep him safe.
Sometimes we have to do things we don't want to do because in our hearts we know it is the right thing to do. I was just faced w ith this this week when my boy Yukon Jack got into something putting him in coma and I almost lost him as well. We just cremated my Nvwati in Sept.
I prayed so hard at 2 pm on Thursday that if he would not have a quality life or if he was not going to make it that he be taken immediately. An hour later the vet called to say he was out of coma!We don't always get good responses and I am so blessed to be given a second chance with Yukon Jack.
I have faith that Kodi's new family will love Kodi totally and will be given a good life. Have those horrible children been charged? I am heartbroken over what happened to Hawkeye. Know we are here for you.
05-03-2008 9:13 AM -- By: Hawkeyes Family , Critters.com memorial: Hawkeye Memorial The new owners came to pick up Kodi. It was really hard to watch him leave. Now I have no dogs. They where my companions. I am still heart broken over the loss of Hawkeye. Some people still ask about Hawkeye and I have to tell them what happend it breaks my heart.
How do you all cope with the loss of a pet? or pets? Hawkeye isnt the only pet I lost. on November 9th 2007 I lost my boy Max to cancer. He was 9 years old. I just try to reamind my self that Hawkeye and Max are back together but it is hard to.
05-03-2008 5:03 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial ((((CAROL))) I am so sorry. I Just heard. Heading over to Coppers site now.
05-02-2008 11:46 PM -- By: Bobby, Critters.com memorial: Oscar Memorial Saturday marks 6 weeks since I lost my boy Oscar, It still hurts really bad and I am feeling like a big baby crying I am trying so hard to make peace with this but I am still unable to cope. I always feel sad now when Saturday comes around.
05-02-2008 11:18 PM -- By: Melissa Hartley, Critters.com memorial: Koochy Memorial It has now been a very long 5 months since Koochy left me. I miss her so very much and still cry daily. Saying her name brings tears. Cosmo is surviving, we help each other through it and he has taken over so many of her qualities. My life without her is so very different and hard. My furry kids were my kids the last 11 years of being single and attending college on my own. Thanks for everyone being so supportive and signing her guestbook.
05-02-2008 10:19 PM -- By: Carol (Copper's Mom), Critters.com memorial: My Copper Girl Memorial Taz has joined Copper at the Bridge....Copper was always so good to him and looked our for him. I will make a page on Copper's site sometime this weekend. He was such a wonderful Kitty Kid.
He had 4 good days after I found out he had a mass on his liver. We had some wonderful snuggle time and lots of cuddles. He had not eaten anything for two days and was not drinking any more...I could not stand to seem him like this so Dr T came to the house tonite after he got off work and Taz is now free from his wreck of a body. I will miss him so very much.
05-02-2008 4:27 PM -- By: Linda (Ceeses's mom), Critters.com memorial: Ceese Memorial Amber, I am so happy to hear that Yukon Jack is doing better. I will continue praying for both of you. Linda
05-02-2008 4:15 PM -- By: Linda (Ceese's mom), Critters.com memorial: Ceese Memorial My dad lost his dog today. I have created a memorial for Custer without a picture as I don't have one. My father has taken in stray and unwanted animals his entire life. He is elderly and recovering from having a malignant kidney removed and his wife has severe Alzheimers. Today is a very sad day for him. I know how supportive you folks are. Please go to Custer's memorial and send my dad support. Thanks, Linda
05-02-2008 2:11 PM -- By: Hawkeyes Family , Critters.com memorial: Hawkeye Memorial It been a week and a day with out my sweet boy Hawkeye. It has been hard. I the week to come I have to go to court with the kids who took Hawkeye away from me. It is going to be hard to face them. Tommarow I say goodbye to my other sweet boy Kodi. I found him a new loving home. It was a hard dession to make to find a new home for him. He was there for me after Hawkeye passed away. It is going to be hard to watch Kodi leave with a new family.
05-02-2008 2:10 PM -- By: Cheri (Coco's Mom), Critters.com memorial: Coco Memorial Please pray for Copper's mom, Carol, today. She has to let her sweet kitty, Taz, go today. He isn't getting any better. She needs our prayers.
05-02-2008 10:10 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Thank you all for your well wishes on Nvwati's guestbook, the phone calls and mostly the prayers! Yukon Jack is drinking water today and they are going to give him food later. He is still blind but the vet says he thinks Yukon Jack WILL come home with me in a few days.
I uploaded some Progression pictures on Yukon's page on Nvwati's site this morning. Will take more today.
Thank you Nvwati for helping Yukon pull through this. You sent him to us when we needed him as much as he needed us and now you answered my prayers to you to help him fight this so he can stay with us longer. I never doubted you were my own guardian angel, Nvwati, but now you have shown us all what the power of prayer can do.

05-01-2008 11:35 AM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Yukon Jack made it through the night. He is in deep coma. Everything is ok except he is in this coma!!!!
Its like his body is functioning ( his breathing is MUCH Better today) but his mind and Spirit seem to be somewhere else.
Please pray for my sweet boy. Thank you.
05-01-2008 6:42 AM -- By: Hawkeyes Family , Critters.com memorial: Hawkeye Memorial I made the dession to find Kodi a new home. I just dont want to have to worry about him everytime I let him outside. It going to be hard to watch him go to a new family but think it is best for right now.
After Hawkeye died I felt like I was ripped apart. I still see the kids who posined Hawkeye I just cant look at them anymore. When i look at them I see people who took Hawkeye away from me. I am todally heartbroken. I never was able to say goodbye to Hawkeye I never was able to. I never told him that day that I loved him. I just don't know what I am going to do. I just feel like I could of done somthing the day hawkeye passed. I could of done somthing to save him.
04-30-2008 10:26 PM -- By: Amber, Critters.com memorial: Nvwati Memorial Please pray for Yukon Jack. He is not expected to make it through the night.
Vet thinks it is a blood clot in his brain. Came on suddenly.
Said my goodbyes. Heartbroken
04-30-2008 9:27 AM -- By: wicki, Sheba's mom, Critters.com memorial: Sheba Memorial Dawn, please don't blame yourself (or let anyone else blame you!) for losing Felix. Sometimes horrible things happen that we don't have answers for, but it's not your fault! You did what you had to do at the time you gave your other cats away. I'm sure they knew how much they were loved by you. God bless you. I'm praying for your healing.
04-30-2008 7:05 AM -- By: Hawkeyes Family, Critters.com memorial: Hawkeye Memorial Tomoarrow is going to be a week since I lost my sweet boy Hawkeye. My Heart is broken right now. I feel so guilty of the loss of Hawkeye. I feel like I could of done somthing. I made the dission to press charges against the kids who took Hawkeye away from me. I have another dog with me at my house. I don't think it is a safe place for him to live with me. I am thinking to find a new home for him. I dont want him to end up like Hawkeye.
04-30-2008 1:10 AM -- By: , Critters.com memorial: felix Memorial
I just need to talk about something that happened a long time ago. I had three of the most beautiful cats, Daffny, Bacardi, and midnight. I also had a baby who turned out to have asthma. We decided to have the cats go live with a family member who it turns out didnt take care of them. I knew it wasnt the best place for them but didnt know what else to do the cats were causing the baby to have breathing trouble. The cats were outside cats and dont know what happened to them I felt bad dor a long time but had let it go until I l;ost my felix, he was just a baby and my husband made a comment, maybe felix was taken away because of what i did to my other kitties. I didnt know there were medicines we could have given the baby, she was my first, to keep her asthma under control. I really feel bad for leaving my cats in a place where i knew they wouldnt be taken care of like i did. I know in my heart my felix getting sick and dying had nothing to do with my other cats. My bacardiwas was such a goodboy and Ioved him so much. He was so smart, daffney was a dadies girl, and midnight was the tinyest little thing when i found her in dumpster, i nursed her back to health and loved her. I miss all the cats i have had, my felix, noi, noi and bacrdi, daffney, and my midnight. It is so lonely without any kitty to give the love I have to.
04-29-2008 12:11 PM -- By: Bobby Foster, Critters.com memorial: Oscar Memorial Oscar, your daddy is missing you still, it has been 5 weeks saturday that you left me . I knwo your in a better place to be cared for but i still miss you . You are not there in the window when i come home from work. Your not there to take naps with me or beg me for food. I miss you little buddy so much! Each day is getting some better but still I can not stop shedding some tears each day missing you. I am still so sad that you had to go and I am trying to carry on with you in my memories. Daddy has made you a beautiful Garden wher you are layed to rest with flowers and trees that show off the seasons. I have a bench out in the garden that iI sit and talk to you every day. I miss you little buddy soooooooo much! You are on my mind every day.
04-28-2008 10:37 PM -- By: claudia, Critters.com memorial: Otis Memorial Hi everyone, I havent' been on much lately, I've been trying so hard to stay busy. It's the only thing that gets me through. I hope everyone is doing well, and I pray for all your special hearts. Everyday that I come to visit, I see so many more sweet faces added. Though it's so sad to know they are gone for now, it's also heart warming to know there is so much love out there shared with these special companions of ours. I never knew there were this many people with such wonderful hearts towards critters! And then there are the not so wonderful ones such as that marine and the ones who poisoned Hawkeye, the one who shot poor sweet Heidi. And others. But what is heart warming is the way the owners of these sweet babies loved them so.. (in the case of Angel puppy we all are his owners and share a special love for him). That is the most important thing! It's not how some of them go..it's how they were loved while they were here. True it's horrid that humans can do such things. Unfortunately it's getting worse out there. But to come here, and find so much true love and devotion to our little innocent fur babies is helping to heal all of our broken hearts through God. My prayers are with you all. Hugs to everyone!
