New News -- Not Good News

RIP, Sweetie Pie
August 1, 2002 - April 9, 2013

I regret that my first post of 2013 is sad news.  After a 3-month long illness during which she lost more than half her body weight, Sweetie Pie has gone to play with the kitty-angels in heaven.  She was gentle to the end and, if one can attribute such things to animals, appreciative of the loving care she received.  I am extremely sad tonight, and will miss her very much.

Gardening Daughter and I will bury her in the back garden, not far from her companion, Squeak.

I hope to be back in blogland with happier news, soon.

I am so sorry to read about your beloved pet's passing.
There us nothing I can say that will lessen your grief, but I want you to know that I care.

Oh Pat, I am so very sorry for your loss. I know how difficult it is to lose a beloved pet. Hugs to you.

Pat, so sorry to read of Sweetie Pie's passing. It is so hard to have one of our furbabies pass on. Sending you many gentle hugs.

It is hard to go through the loss of a pet. After over 35 years of pet ownership, we are without a pet after our cat, Moses, died from a tick borne disease.

I'm so sorry to hear of Sweetie Pie's passing. She looks a great deal like Gracie, my son's family's cat whom we are feeding this week while her nuclear family frolics in Myrtle Beach during the spring break from school. Gracie is a lovely, sweet kitty; she purrs the entire time we are in her house. I'm sure she sends her condolences as well.
