    Ohh, honey, I am so sorry to hear it. Love to all of you!

  2. Thank you.

    The experience was eerily like my experience with Mom. I woke in the middle of the night and heard him making noise with every breath. I came downstairs and loved him all the way out.

    We’re going to school and work late this morning. Mr. Chili is digging Small One’s grave as I write this; we’ll see him off with a little more love before we get on with our day.

  3. Did you see this coming at all? Poor kitty. I’m glad he went softly and quietly on his little cat feet. Glad you’re all able to take care of him and honor him this morning.

    Love you.

  4. I am so, SO sorry, Mrs. C.! 😦

  8. Aww…I’m so sorry. Losing a pet sucks.

    Well, now I am sad….

  10. So sorry! I am teary for you. So glad you were with him.

  11. Oh, sweetie. I’m so sorry.

  12. Tonks

    I am so sorry. That is horrible but at least at the end he had company.

  13. Hard to lose a friend…

  14. Oh no! I am so glad you were able to be with him. I’m thinking about the Chili family today.

  15. Jennifer

    Welling up. So sorry. I am so glad you were there and it was quiet and peaceful and he managed it on his own (it’s so hard to decide if and when they need our help). I loved that little man, I loved them all but the boys were especially special to me.

    Sorry for you all. Our cats get some extra birdy toy time in Small One’s honor.

  20. So sorry for the loss. Pets are people, too.

  21. Rowan

    I’m so sorry. Blessings to you all and may the joy of memories help lesson grief.

  22. I’ve talked to you a couple of times on Carson’s blog. I’m so sorry for your loss of your friend.

  23. It appears I clicked submit prematurely. I’m also sorry for all the other loss you’ve experienced recently.

  24. So sorry to hear about your loss. My thoughts are with you.

  25. I’m so sorry you lost your beautiful kitty.

    I am sorry for your loss.

  27. That looks SO much like my “mean cat.” (My favorite one.) I’m so sorry. Looks like it was a long, good life, but that makes it all the harder. I really haven’t been through many worse things than the loss of my last two animals. (Because they were MINE, not the ones I had when I lived with my parents.)

    I’m so sorry. I lost my feline companion almost a year ago and I still get misty-eyed and that clammy cloak of sadness. It was just me and her for 14 years … the unexpectedness of it. The finality of watching them end her suffering. I ache. Still.

  29. Wow! I am so far behind in my reader. I am so sorry for your loss.
