Honor & celebrate your past pets
Thumper was an amazing rabbit, he was incredibly smart and loved rabbit agility. He was with me for 6 wonderful years in which he taught me many things over those years. I’m very grateful for being his owner because he changed my life, he was very loved and will never be forgotten.
Saying goodbye to this little guy on Thursday was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do…but within 6 weeks of being diagnosed with a serious heart murmer his heart couldn’t take it no more. He went through so much ailments during his 7 years on this earth and he was one of the most bravest and loving fur babies you could ever have. His loss has completely destroyed me
Gioni was my childhood dog who always was there for me when I was sad or having a bad day. He holds a special place in my heart since he is my first fur baby. I will never forget his last moments in my arms and I will never get over him unfortunately. Rest in peace baby ❤️
Max was adopted when she was a kitten in 2004 by a different “family”, was abandoned, and ended up at the shelter in 2016 where i adopted her when she was a senior cat. She was the my best friend and we had the best times together up until May 2020 where her health declined rapidly and she easily passed on. I will always love you, Maxie. i hope you’re happy and comfortable where you are and i hope to join you when it’s time❤️
Nanny was a beautiful tortoiseshell cat. She brought so much love into my life. We slept together, cuddled, and spent a lot of time together. She went over the Rainbow Bridge on Earth Day, April 22, 2020. She had cancer of the tongue. Dr Carmichael removed as much of it as he could. But she had problems eating. Thank you darling Nanny, for bringing so much love into my life. I will never forget you. We will be together in Heaven.
I found Nanny running around in my apartment complex in 20 degree F weather. She had a collar. I started feeding her. She was very friendly. I managed to get her in a carrier. I took her to BideAWee in Southampton. Apparently, she had belonged to someone else who could not be located. I adopted her, and she joined my 2 other cats-Tiny and Happy. The picture shows her with Kitty, another cat I adopted after Nanny. She was very talkative and friendly. She lived after all my other cats passed away. She would sleep with me. She was diagnosed with cancer of the tongue in 2019. The vet, Dr Carmichael, removed as much of the cancer as he could. But she had problems eating. She crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Earth Day, April 22, 2020. She was 20 years old. Thank you so much, dear Nanny, for sharing your life with me and for your sweet love. I will never forget you, and I will see you in Heaven.
Boots is one of those special animals that adopts a human. I met him on my front porch while tying my shoes to go for a walk. He literally jumped in my lap as I was tying my shoes. It was like he said, “okay human, I choose you!” He was emaciated, and looked like he had been living rough, so I did what any responsible college student would do; I fed him before telling my parents. Afterwards I called my dad, and he said he’d check him out when he got home. When he saw the cat’s condition, he told me to get him more food, we took him to the vet the next day, and he was mine ever since.
Boots was aptly named by my father for the size of his paws (even though I had originally wanted to name him Oliver). He loved being outside, and roamed the neighborhood, chasing birds and rabbits, catching chipmunks and field mice. He loved to cuddle, and always joined me at bedtime when I was home from college. He was my mom’s morning companion, and would sit with her and watch birds from the window as she drank her coffee. He’d follow my dad around the the house as he did yard work. He would later come to tolerate my brother’s cat cuddling up next to him, and would groom her as he shared his cat bed. He had the brightest green eyes, and always loved to play.
Boots crossed the rainbow bridge this past April. We believe he had some form of cancer, and he had an appointment with the vet the day after he passed away. I know he’s on the rainbow bridge, playing with his buddy Tiger who had crossed nine years before him.
I love you Boots, and I am so lucky you decided to share your life with me. 💕
