Sad News :(

I can hardly believe that I'm having to do this again...





Duncan
1995 - June 20, 2009

Duncan was a one-in-a-million type of cat.  He loved almost everyone, family, friends and strangers.  If Duncan didn't like someone, it was definitely something to consider.  He loved to cuddle, loved to kiss (big, wet, sloppy kisses), and he even gave hugs.  Real hugs, where he would put his kitty paws around your neck and just snuggle.  His favorite toy was a small, red stuffed cow, aka "Miss Cow", who he used to carry around the house in his mouth, meowing as loud as possible at the same time.  Then he'd drop her, and usually sit on her.  I'm not sure what that was all about, but it made him happy.

 
With the passing of Duncan, all my persians are gone.  Boo, Duncan and Winter all came from the same gene pool, and I wonder if that doesn't have something to do with them all developing serious health issues around the same age.  I like to think they lived almost all their lives together, and they wanted to keep that streak going in the next world, whatever that may be.

It almost seems like the new kittens came into my life at this time for a reason.

Oh honey, I am SO sorry. It's sad to realize the relatively short time we are given to spend with our beloved pets. It's clear from your heartfelt tribute that Duncan both gave and received a lot of love in his time. *hugs*

Oh Val, I'm so sorry about Duncan. *Hugs You Tight*
Maybe Duncan was waiting until he knew you had new fur babies to take care of before he joined his siblings in kitty heaven?

I know there's nothing I can say to make you feel better, but please know that I am thinking about you and Duncan and sending good thoughts your way.

Once again, alas. I am sorry that you lost Duncan.

I had a female, white cat who did the same thing with toys as your Duncan. She would carry them in her mouth and mewl loudly. I always thought that it was a maternal instinct thing. But your Duncan did it too. Perhaps he was strongly paternal.

All my sympathy for your loss.

Oh, honey. I'm so sorry. *HUGS*

If you need to talk, we're here. There's also a wonderful pet loss support site called The Rainbow Bridge, which can be found at www.rainbowbridge.org

They are wonderful there!

Remember your sweet kitty with happiness and love, babe. It's everything that our pets give us.

Oh, Val. *hugs you tight* What a loving tribute, and what a beautiful boy. I'm so, so sorry.

I know your new kitties don't replace your beloved Boo-Bear, Winter, and Duncan in any way, but I hope their playful presence will ease your pain just a bit. Know that you're in my thoughts, and I'm sending all my comfort and best wishes your way.

I'm so glad for the years you and your precious furbabies had together. You brought each other a wealth of love and happiness.

I'm so sorry to hear this. That picture makes me just want to snuggle up to him. He had a great name though (my dog's name is Duncan, and we used to have a dog name Boo-Boo..hmmmm ;). Just bury yourself in your kitties and they will help you get through this time.

I am so sorry to hear about Duncan :) *hug* He sounded like such a loveable boy. We are so blessed that we get to spend some time with them even though its so short but at least we are left with happy memories to make us smile.

*hug*

I'm so very sorry for your loss! What you said about Duncan brought tears to my eyes. I love my pets so much! My older dog is almost 14 and in ill health and I'm scared I'm going to lose him soon. :( My oldest cat is 14 already. I don't want to think about saying good-bye to them. It's so hard. My heart goes out to you. I hope Duncan met Boo and Winter in another world or reality and they are happily playing together now.

I'm glad you have your new two kitties to keep you company now. I'm sure Duncan will live forever in your heart. *Hugs*
