I Wish He'd Live Forever

Reggae's imitation of my bunny :-)
Maybe because he's 9 now I know he won't have many years left with me, but each time I read something like this i get throat lumps. Reggae...don't ever go. I'm not ready to knit a kitty! Keep bringing me mice from the basement. I don't care if you are mean and nasty to everyone in my life except me. I don't care what time you wake me up. Really. Just keep waking me up. I promise I will cast on your Kitty Pi bed this weekend. I'll put my Sidekick on the back burner. I love you, Reggae-Boo.

I sure understand the heart ache of losing a beloved pet. I just lost my cat Scooter on Tuesday. She was with us for 11 years. Cherish them while you can.

Yes, I truly understand how you feel. My Max is 9---10 in October. I try not to let myself "go there" as much now, but while he was sick last spring, I was a real mess!

I feel blessed each day with him and our new puppy.

I know those feelings all too well. My cat is 18 and every day is a blessing... most days. ;^)

Enjoy him while you have him and try to remember that you do have time. He's still a baby yet.

My heart goes out to all of you who have recently lost a beloved 4 legged kid! I know its not easy.

I choke up if I even think of life without my cat... he is 11 so I know that at some point it's gonna happen - especially since he's sick and needs daily meds.

I hope he lives forever too!
