    Nancy, I’m so sorry for the passing of your dear Abby. Our furbabies never seem to stay long enough, no matter how old they are when we lose them.
    It seems especially hard when they have been associated with a loved one we’ve lost as well.
    Your pick is a beautiful tribute to your dear, sweet kitty, Abby.

    I’m so so sorry. Its always hard to lose a pet, especially one we’ve had for many years. They have been such a part of our everyday lives, a friend, a comfort, a joy.
    This pick is a great tribute. Bless you. >^.^<

    I am so sorry you lost a precious furbaby. We grieve almost as if for children when we lose one. Hugs to you, my friend, and hugs to the remaining furbabies who will continue to give you daily love.

    Thank you all SO MUCH. You all are pet lovers so you know the terrible pain. I wish you could have seen me talking to my Butch, tears streaming down my face, (Sunny’s brother who disappeared). He’s only 4 – they were sibs – both 4 and I was begging him to come home as he was begging to go out. He was a feral and used to going out a lot. At the time I had 6 indoor/outdoor cats plus 2 always indoor cats.

    So since I just couldn’t have that many litter boxes, I let the “wild ones” come and go.

    I was up most of the night with Abby as I thought she might pass during the night. Although she would become very still at times, she kept breathing. When I got her to the vets, she said she was amazed that Abby lasted this long. But she was a stubborn one. She fought to the end.

    Anyway, I’m too tired to do much and will probably fall asleep early (for me) watching TV.

    night all

    I meant to say that Sunny who disappeared was Butch’s brother from the same litter.

    Nancy, I am so sorry to hear of Abby’s passing. The pain of losing one of our furbabies is very deep and real. It must have been a comfort to her that you were with her at the end. She obviously had a very good, long life with you. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Nancy. Sending hugs your way!

    This is a lovely pick to honor Abby’s memory.

    Nancy I am sorry to hear of Abby’s passing. It is so hard to let them go. I know how it is to sit up with them, not wanting them to be alone at the end. I know how rewarding it is to know you were there for them as they have been there for you. I am shedding a few tears for you as I think of my three kitties of my adulthood who have traveled the rainbow bridge. Know we LB folks are here with you in spirit. Get some rest and feel surrounded by our arms.

    Nancy, my heart and tears go out to you. As hard as it is to let them go they will always be with us. I still feel my Raja curled up next to me when I sleep at night. Especially during the winter. She used to keep me so warm. It’s hard to believe she’s been gone three years already. Stay strong and hold your other babies close. They will help ease the sorrow.

    Frida says:

    Nancy so sorry for your loss of little Abby. You have been struggling with many losses recently, eaven if one loss is though the multiple of them is cruel. Your furbabies have been lucky to have someone that cares and loves them. The pick is a lovely tribute and memory.

    Many big warm hugs to you.

    Nancy, it seems that your Abby found it as hard to leave you as you did to let her go…. you’ve been such close & constant companions…hope that sharing your loss has helped a little in easing your pain, & my thoughts are with you.

    Oh Nancey, you’ve had so many reasons to shed tears lately. Sad to hear your furbaby left you, but it sounds like you have many happy memories of her. I still dream about my favorite cat, and he’s been gone nearly 5 years – - -

    Granny Nancy says:

    Yes I have others like my Himalayan that I lost about 5 years ago as well. He was a special kitty. We had an interesting bond. Because of chronic illness I was forced to retired early. So I took some of my severence and bought a full blooded himalayan and named him Dickens. We had a wonderful time. Sadly, he was plagued with cancer but we had 11 good years together.
