A Heavy Heart

Hi Dear Friend,  I am writing tonight with a very heavy heart. That handsome wonderful cat you see every time you open my bog has past away.  I can't even find the words to express how sad I am. Max has been there for me through a lot of hard times.  He sat next to me with every post I have written on this blog. He encouraged me when I needed encouragement and he comforted me when I need that. I am going to miss the thud he makes when he jumps on my bed every night and purr that would put me to sleep.   He was so smart.  I don't know if I every told you but when he was a kitten I taught him how to sit and roll over.
We don't know what happen. We came home and found him.  He hasn't been sick.  But he hasn't want to go outside at all, and he had a different kind of meow at night.  He still was playing and eating.  Max was 14 years old.  He was the best kitty every.
I do want to thank Max for all that he has given me because I am sure it is much more than I gave to him.


I am going to miss him very very much.

I am so sad for you.
Our cat is 15 and I know the day will come, but don't want to think about it, as they are our family.
And we love them so much.

Oh I'm so sorry. I lost my kitty last November the day before Thanksgiving. It's a hard void to fill when they've been with us for so long.

Peace be with you.

Aww Linda. I am sooooo sorry to hear that Max has passed. My deepest and heartfelt condolences. Our animals really do become part of our family and it hurts just as much when we lose one of them. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. <3
Lots of Love,
Lina

I'm SO sorry to hear it Linda! Thinking of you!

Laurel DeViney said...

Oh Linda,

I am so sorry for your loss. Max was so handsome, and I can tell he was your pride and joy. I was lost when I lost Scotia, nearly 4 years ago, and it seems like yesterday. I was blessed to have her for 16 years, and I selfishly thought she would live forever. I will never forget her, and I miss her everyday. My Geddy is so sweet, but very different. He truly saved my heart from breaking. and I was not going to get another cat, as no cat would ever replace Scotia. I can say, no cat ever has. I merely adopted a Geddy, and he is wonderful.
I am sending you good positive thoughts of comfort in your time of grief, and hope you will be comforted by all of your wonderful memories.

Hugs,

Laurel

Linda, I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a best friend is never easy and when it was so unexpected that makes it even harder. You will greatly miss him but I hope you find comfort in the many wonderful memories you shared. You were obviously a good human to him and he was a fortunate kitty.

SO sad to hear. I am sending you cyberhugs and a shoulder to cry on!

Pam said...

I am new to your blog, but I wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. As I write this I have my own kitty in my lap. He too is very old, and been acting a bit funny lately. My prayers are with you.

I am so very, very sorry Linda. I truly know your grief. When I lost my Miniature Schnauzer I grieved for 2 years. He died over 13 years ago and I still miss him. Sending you cyber hugs for the emptiness that you are feeling. You are certainly on my mind today. Again, I'm so very sorry. Extra big hugs, Curt

OMG Linda I am so very, very sorry for the loss of Max, I know how devastated and heart broken you must be, oh dear I am afraid I am a bit emotional myself. the first thing I always looked at was Max on your banner, They are so much more than pets aren't they they are our little babies that bring so much joy into our hearts, I can understand the big void it has left in your life. I wish I was near so I could give you a little support, I am sure Max is still with you in spirit, take care
Love & hugs

Honey I am so sorry! I missed this post as I have not been on the past couple of days, but I wanted to let you know that I am praying for comfort for you. We had a cat for 16 years that just curled up one night in a basket of socks and never woke up. I am sure that Max knew how much you loved him.
