Lost my beloved cat Sooty on 29/12/17 and i am heartbroken. The house is going to be so quiet without you and our quality of life nowhere near as good. I tried to think of every way possible to keep you with us but there were no options suitable and events have just overwhelmed us. All i can say is you were loved and your memory will remain with us til the day we join you over the Rainbow Bridge and are reunited.

GARY>  Saddened at the loss of Your beloved. Know that, when an animal touches Your Soul, it is FOREVER. I, of recent read the following.... We that have suffered the Loss of a pet should view the entire movie of the pet's Life and  not that of the ending snapshot. With that said You will have lasting memories of meaningful times and at that particular time you were not aware of how VALUABLE THOSE MEMORIES WOULD BECOME. Peace to You, SherryxxPerrryxx.

Thank you for replying. We had Sooty for 12 years and in that time so much of that time has been spent with him. He had a condition where monthly or every 5 or 6 weeks an injection was needed to keep him going but i am just so traumatised by the events that led to us having to have him put to sleep.  We were burnt out of our home on early Christmas day and Sooty was always a very nervous highly strung cat. This caused him to go into a terrible nervous trauma thing where he wouldn't come back in the house and when he did he was cowering in the corner of a mirrored wardrobe.  This together with the fact we have had to leave our home until it can be repaired led me down the path i didn't want to go.  I racked my mind for days and days trying to find a way, any way, that would result in us being able to stay together but there was none.  The options i had were to put him into a cattery for months and the poor soul would just have pined away for us and would have been wondering why this had happened and where were we etc.  I just couldn't subject him to any more trauma and i didn't want him to be scared or frightened or feeling abandoned.  The other option was take him with us but it was into an apartment flat and with no access to outside. It just wasn't going to work. Plus again i didn't want him to suffer any more torment.   But i feel so sad about the whole episode and angry that this has happened to us.

Hello Gary>
Hope you are coping on a day to day. All the years of companionship and unconditional love they give to us is certainly worth the grieving process in the end. Those MEMORIES, are firmly planted in each and every one of our HEARTS-- FOREVER. Hope this helps.   SherryXXPerryXX.

Thank you so much for the kind words. I wanted to put online about Sooty as i wanted it out in cyberspace as well as in our own hearts and souls how much he was dearly loved. When an animal has cuddled up on your knee for hours and become almost an extension of you then you build a bond that is unbreakable. I know our memories will last forever but things feel so unreal now.  I know when we move back to our real home after the fire repairs are completed that then will be the time we miss our Sooty baby more than ever. I can't imagine the house without him and it really leaves you bereft. You have to carry on but i don't want to after Sooty leaving us. A part of us dies with them. I will post a picture at some point but at the moment i couldn't look at his little face without breaking my heart.
