Dear Lynne - I am so very sorry that BooBoo had to leave. You and Bob are the
most wonderful people and it was somehow meant that BooBoo would come to you
for happiness in his last days. He is well and happy now and I know that
doesn't really help at this time--but time passing will dull the
No, it doesn't sound stupid at all. There are those of us who firmly
believe our friends talk to us and understand what we say and do for
them. When you are very quiet (often asleep) and ready, he will visit
you. Don't be afraid. It is very real and will happen only if you
want it to
I am so very sorry. How lucky that BooBoo was able to experience love
and exquisite care at the
end of his life. You and Bob were a gift.
We all grieve with you.

Boo may have been with you for a short time but he touched your lives in a very
special way. My heart cries with you. Please accept my sympathy.

Most were beautiful, loving creatures (even feral cats!) that died
Lynne, I am so sorry you lost BooBoo. My heart truly goes out to you
and Bob. Most of us on this list are all too familiar with the
frustration and desperation you've felt these past weeks, when you try
everything, hope for anything, and end up losing them anyway. My
experience with Patches was

This was also the reason we ended up putting up the enclosure, once

I'm so sorry, Lynne - may he have gentle guidance over the bridge from
all our other babies who had gone that route. My baby Mr. Black Kitty
would be very glad to assist him. Sleep soft sweet BooBoo. GLoria

Lynne, I am so very sorry that you had to say goodbye to your precious BooBoo.
Sometimes that's the last act of kindness that we can do for our little ones.
My heart goes out to you.
Lynn and Bob,
I am so very very sorry for your loss. Even though
you know it is probably coming, there is still a part
of you that hopes for the impossible.
I told you a bit about Smokey. The morning he died,
he woke me up as usual nuzling my ear and purring. I
will never forget that, ever.
I just wanted to say thank you to all of you wonderful people for your kind and
comforting words. I don't know how I got through today. It was so hard not
crying at work but on the way home I just couldn't control it anymore. I
didn't want to walk into the house knowing he wasn't upstairs to
All alone I plaintively cry in the night
The ones who own me don't care about me
My coat is all matted my fur filled with fleas
I don't fell so well, but can't give up my fight
A gentle hand reaches to caress me with love
Won't you keep me and hold me and make me your own,
Thank you Sue for the lovely poem. I can't stop crying but that's ok, it's
part of life I hear. I miss him so much it's almost unbearable. I won't leave
this group. I have learned so much here and do not know how I could get
through this without all my new found friends. And there is so
I just wanted to let you know that I felt so devastated this morning when I got
to work and checked my email and saw the subject lines from this site and the
FIP site. I literally said out loud oh god, no. I know it didn't look good
for BooBoo after the vet said it looked like FIP
I am so sorry to hear about Boo Boo. I was trying to catch up on the posts
about him and was surprised to read that you lost him yesterday. I know you
must be heartbroken.
You said that you can't imagine ever being happy again, but most of us here
have lost a beloved furbaby, and I
This website is invaluable when mourning the loss of our furbabies:
There is a Grief Support Center there that is wonderful.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the
world - indeed it is
Caroline, I'm certain BooBoo has made a lot of friends by now. He's so little
and cute the bigger guys will be good to him. He was such a gentle natured
dear too. You are so right about worse situations. BooBoo knew we loved him
dearly and I know he loved us too. I guess it's us I'm
Yeah I know Wendy. I have to force myself to eat and am certainly not very
sociable at the moment. I had to ask Bob to put his pictures away for a while.
He made this little shrine so to speak of the cats we have owned and of course
old Lennie and lit a candle last night for them. I guess
I want to piggyback on what Caroline said...one of the wonderful yet sad
ironies of this group is that everytime one of us loses a furbaby, we actually
help others who have lost their kitties beforehand. The more recent the loss,
the fresher the pain, and when we cry for another's loss, we are
I am so sorry you lost your baby. No matter how much time we have, it is

You might also try mixing pumpkin with wet food to help with the diarrhea. I
have cats (and a dog) that get diarrhea on antibiotics.
I admire what you've taken on. Good luck with all the cats you have rescued,
and welcome to the list.
