It's Hard to Say GoodBye!

Kenggy became weaker but she managed to maneuvre herself to face the MeowRoom door. Our human placed a rolled-up cloth to support her head to ease her shallow breathing.
Her best friend, Winnie, came to keep her company, both staring at each in a silent communication.
Soon after Kenggy passed away on 10th June 2014. She was cremated.

Before our human could finish clearing the special 'Meow Suite', Pebble got seriously ill. Pebble's sickness was a constant yo-yo.

To replenish her medication, our human made an appointment with Pebble's doctor to pick it up the next day. Early next morning, on 25th January 2016, Pebble was found in a rigor mortis mode and a phone call was quickly made to her vet to cancel her medication.

Here Tanya, Winnie and Captain Jack Sparrow HAWK were telling EJ that they have finished saying their last goodbye. Just like the rest before her, Pebble was cremated.

It was when her ash came home that it hit EJ that both, Kenggy's and Pebble's, absence was really felt.

Yes, that 'Meow Suite' was dismantled and cleaned but EJ somehow could not clear many of their things. Perhaps our human need a little more time to heal emotionally.

It takes the time it does, and for us all that time is different. The other cats will help and keep EJ focused on the now, but memories and keepsakes are allowed. ... and you, dear Chair, are the witness of compassion. Many hugs of condolence, YAM-aunty xxx

We understand how difficult it can be. There are things that cannot be moved here too.

I still to this mourn my Abby. She's been gone 973 days. So it is so hard when they leave us. I understand how hard it is to let go of the way of life as it once was. That takes time to let things settle in. To find a new normal with new routines. My heart goes out to you because we all understand losing someone we loved deeply. Keeping you in my thoughts and my prayers.

Losing a beloved furry family member is never easy, but losing two that close together.. That's worse than doubly hard. We can understand needing to take time. Mourning takes how long it takes. We are so sorry for these losses and send you purrs and hugs.

We too know the pain of saying good-bye. :( We're very sorry for the loss of Pebble. And even though Kenggy's loss wasn't as recent, we understand how healing emotionally from a loss takes time. A warm hug!

We are so sorry and know how you feel when a beloved pet crosses Rainbow Bridge. Our thoughts are with you.

I so understand. My Angel Bobo passed in 2007. I still have his PTU (somehow Cody found it in the closet, opened the door and sleeps in it), his bowls, his bed and some of his toys. I cannot bring myself to part with them. xoxo catchatwithcarenandcody

We feel your loss. We are so sorry to hear of Kenggy and Pebble's passing. You did everything you could for them. You gave them much love during their lives, and they loved you back. It is very hard to say goodbye.

Each loss is unique and takes its own time to heal. I know how this goes. I lost 4 kitties last year and am still in mourning. Sending love.
