Very sad day in my house. :(



Boo, 1995-05/07/09

Boo, or Boo-bear as we most often called him, was the first cat I ever had that played fetch.  He loved to talk and complain.  He had beautiful, long, silky fur that parted down the middle of his back, and a long tail that was usually held straight up.  But he hated being groomed.  He wasn't much of a lap cat, but occasionally he changed his mind, and then he'd just flop in your lap, no matter what you were doing, and expect to be cuddled.  He was sweet, and affectionate and a wonderful member of the family.


Winter, 1995-05/07/09

Winter was the shyest of my cats, unless you invaded his domain (my bedroom), then he was the boss.  He overcame some nervousness in his younger years, and eventually became a pretty confident guy.  He was my cat in every way, happiest when he could just sit in a room with me and watch what I was doing.  He slept on my bed at night nearly every single day for more years then I can remember.  His favorite toy was a pen, preferably one you were trying to write with, or an old beat up catnip mouse that he would tussle with for a few minutes, then ignore for a week.  He was sensitive and gentle, and an amazing friend.

R.I.P. my pretty fur babies.  You will be missed more then I can express.

I'm so sorry that you lost both of your beloved cats on the same day. Were they litter mates?

And not to be intrusive, but was it a natural disaster or something that would make them both go at the same time? It's so sad.

Boo was diagnosed with chronic lung disease about a year ago. We did everything we could, but he was losing his battle, and we knew we had to let him go. Winter had an upset stomach, and we took him to the vet and he was diagnosed with lymphoma. We decided it was best to let them go together. They were half brothers.

Honey, I'm so sorry. Hard enough to lose one member of the family, but two together is just a terrible loss.

They are gorgeous. You gave them wonderful long lives and the best gift of all: a loving home.

Again, I'm so sorry. *HUGS*

*hug* What a horrible thing, to lose two such old freinds on the same day. They both sound like wonderful characters. My sympathies!

Oh Val, I don't even know what to say. I'm so sorry about your babies. I know there's probably nothing I can say to make you feel better, but if there's anything I can do, please let me know. I'm thinking about you and sending good thoughts your way. *Hugs You Tight*
