Oh, Karen... SO sorry to hear this news. A good friend just lost one of her four-legged kids to renal failure a few weeks ago... this is a REALLY tough thing. Best thoughts to you and Pea right now while you try to remember better times with your sweet fella.

Take good care of yourselves, Jill

Really sorry, Karen...:(

Heide said...

Oh dear Karen, I am crying for you right now. I know how close you became to Charlie over the past several months. I am so glad that he chose to spend his last time in this world with you and Pea. You gave him the home, love and dignity that he deserved. And he brought the gift of companionship to you. I wish there was something I could do to ease the pain of your loss.

Andrea said...

I'm so sorry to read about Charlie. Just when you've found how much love a cat can bring to your life to lose it is just awful.

Big hugs from me, and all the 31 cats I'm currently minding at my job (a cattery in Melbourne).

Sonya said...

Oh, Karen, I am so sorry to hear about Charlie! I'm so sad for you because I know Charlie captured your heart from the very beginning. I am glad though that the end of his life was full of warmth and love. {{hugs}}

Jennifer said...

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this. I was so worried about him and you. He was lucky to have you both these past few months. My deepest sympathies. My heart hurts for you.

I'm crying for you here......what a sweet little kitty that you had the joy of loving for too short of a time...my heart hurts for you. ((Hugs))

I am so so so sorry. :(

I know how pets can become such a loved one in a family.

I am so sorry to hear about Charlie!

Kathy said...

Karen and Pea

How your hearts are aching. He was such a gift eh?
He is still with you. Im very sorry for you my sweet blog friend.

Debbi said...

I am so sorry, I know how hard it was to let him in but know that you gave him love in his last few months. He chose you for a reason, he knew you would love him.

Alisha said...

Ah Karen that sucks. I am so sorry.

You know we lost two cats within one month of each other. The oldest died due to old age and the other I am most certain died due to a broken heart...losing his pal.

I swore after that pain in my heart after losing them I would never get anymore pets......we still had the dog but that was it no more adding.

We got another cat who has managed to get us all wrapped aroung his little paw and I will be heart broken when the day comes he has to leave us and I will swear not to get another pet but you know I will.

Pets are so unconditional...they love us in the good bad and the ugly. The are such a wonderful part of a home.

I bet a year ago you never would have thought a pet could touch your heart so much.

I am glad you got to enjoy Charlie even if it was breifly. Think of how lucky he was to find you and be in a warm happy home while sick.

Take care {hugs}

It hurts to be the one left, but I hope you can take some comfort in having given a lovely old fella a good home for his last bit of time. What a good thing you did, making him last bit of life happy.

I am so sorry babe.

Karen said...

So sorry for your loss. I have two pets who left me buried in my back yard (don't tell the city health people) where I can commune with them when needed. Your Pickle will always be with you in your heart.

Has anyone referred you to this site?:

It might not be your cup of tea, but I have seen it cited by lots of others online who are in your shoes, so I thought I would mention it.

Knit in peace,
Karen

I lost my beloved Boo Boo Kitty this past December. My thoughts are with you. It hurts, but it will get better and he is no longer in pain.

I am so sorry for your loss. It breaks my heart when a pet dies. I know Charlie is hanging out with my Dommy playing with neverending catnip and snoozing on whatever they please.

jessica said...

Oh Karen... I too am sorry for your loss, the kids (when I tell them), will be so sad. We have been praying for you and Charlie, for strength in dealing with whatever had to happen. Much love to you, *HUGS* from me and my kids.

I am so sorry. I just lost a Charlie too and I know how bad it hurts. I have three cats with me, but I still miss him everyday. You did a wonderful thing to adopt him and give him a happy home to spend his last times in, and lots of love too. ((hugs))
