Update on Andy

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
It breaks my heart to say my husband found Andy's body today. It looks like some kind of animal got to him. I want to thank each and everyone of you for your love and support. I can really talk now I just wanted everyone to know. Andy is now in a better place with his sister Sarah, and brothers Willy, Benny and Zander.

Oh Michele, I am so sorry!
My heart goes out to you, I know how hard this must be for you, having had a cat killed several years ago myself.

You're right about Andy being in a better place, but that doesn't stop you from missing him.

I will say a prayer for Andy, and for you also.

i'm so sorry, truly so heartbroken that this has happened to your precious

i know how hard this must be for you, so i'll now say a prayer for you,
and try to send my support & strength over to you.

we had a dog of ours run down by a drunk driver when i was just a little
girl, it happened right in front of me, just about hitting me as well,
and we lost our dog, Mandy, who had just mothered a litter.

my step-mother and i were devastated for a long time, i know i got through
it by giving my love to one of her litter, Dragger, one that we decided to keep,
it pulled me through.

we lost Dragger, who i've had since i was 10, two years ago, and it just
never gets easier to lose a pet, the grief is enormous, but know, we all
mourn with you, and feel for you.

Just want to say how sorry I am that you lost Andy. The only good thing if that is possible is that you dont have to worry and wonder what happened to him. Again I am very sorry and my thoughts are with you.

Andy had a wonderful life with you I am sure. I think it's better to know for sure what happened to him as much as it hurts. My heart goes out to you sweetie!

Nothing I will say will make everything all better, but just know we are all here for you...to talk to, bring up old times about Andy, to vent....I will sing your Andy to the Rainbow Bridge with my kitties in chourus..

He will be waiting there for you..

Even though I will see you tomorrow I wanted to post my sorrow also. I feel a personal loss with Andy also, as he came from me - Andy was a wonderful, beautiful and friendly "clueless" kind of kitty. He will be missed and remembered by all of us. You and I have lost too many babies this past year and the collective hurt is almost impossible to get over. I will be thinking of you (and Jerry) and Andy tonight.

Many of us have been where you are right now, and in our own way, we have to make our path out of pain. I found this poem long ago. It is called

The Bridge of Love

It takes us back to brighter years,
to happier sunlit days
and to precious moments
that will be with us always.
And these fond recollections
are treasured in the heart
to bring us always close to those
from whom we had to part.

There is a bridge of memories
from earth to Heaven above...
It keeps our dear ones near us

It's the bridge that we call love.

May you return to this bridge from time to time to remember all the good that Andy has given you, and someday, when another kitty appears in your life needing so desperately someone to love him, may you find it in your heart to say hello and let him in.

Hugs (((((((((((()))))))))))))))))))

Dear Michele,

I am truly so sorry that Andy did not make it back home safely. It broke my heart to read the sad news. I hope you will accept my condolences. I am glad that your husband did actually find his body, so that you can grieve properly and begin to have closure. It is somehow worse to never know and to always have that one eye out looking.

It breaks my heart that you have lost Andy. I will be praying for you and we will be here if you should need us. Andy will always be in that special place you will never forget, your heart. Again, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. :angel2:

Oh, Michele! I am so sorry! This is the worst news I've heard in a while...

I am so sorry to her about Andy. I know how you love all your kitty's and I feel your pain. I am just glad Jerry found him, so you will always remember him as he was.
Just from reading the posts on this site there are great and caring people thinking of you and Andy and you know I am always there for you.
Your a great sister and I hope to see you soon.

Love Ya Always,

I'm so sorry to hear about your tradgedy. there's nothing I can say that hasn't been said a million times but you and your loved ones (especially little Andy) are in my thoughts and prayers.

Rene told me about Andy yesterday. I am so sorry. But like you said, not knowing is the worst. You now have closure and can grieve and Andy is in a much better place happy and feeling no more pain waiting for you and Jerry at the Bridge. I will miss him because he was such an awesome, loving little guy who purred when you even looked at him. My heart goes out to both you and Jerry. I love you kiddo and if you want to talk, I am here.

I want to thank everyone for their support. It is just too hard right now to think about. I know I wanted to know what happened but knowing stinks too. I just wanted him to come home to me. I still can't believe it and I miss him like crazy. I know everything happens for a reason it just right now I don't know what the reason is.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Andy. It's hard to lose such a special guy.

Michele, I am so sorry about Andy. Being new to this place, I didn't know anything about him, but my heart goes out to you. I know all too well the pain of losing a loved kitty, but I'm glad you know what happened. It's hard not knowing, but it's just as hard knowing. I'll pray for you, your husband, and Andy. I'm sorry.

I'm so sorry about dear, sweet Andy. After so long of not knowing, the heartbreak of finding him killed is shattering. It hurts me to hear this, but know that he has crossed the rainbow bridge and is in a happier place.

post #20 of 25

here is a poem i have written in honour of your cat, Andy (i hope that's okay with you)
this poem is also written for any and all persons who have lost a beloved pet at one point in their lives.


"Days without you will remember the beauty of your Love,
the graces of your Spirit.

your Memory is with me through the tears that travel my Heart,
your Soul guides my grief toward Peace and gives every passing day the energy of your Life."

(my thoughts are with you)

I am so sorry to hear about your Andy. I know how you feel - I lost my Mimi last August and it was the hardest thing ever. Just know that they're in a better place. I found this little poem online and thought it would be of some small comfort:


Is Heaven all you asked of it,
O little cat? Did Peter fit
A halo for your graceless head?
Is there a quilt for your special bed,
And a bowl of cream just out of reach
Of your thieving paw? Or do They teach
You not to steal in Paradise?
Does the flapping of Their wings entice?
Do you scamper and swing on a golden fence,
Or are They teaching you reverence?
And are there really golden thrones
Up there? Or do the Mighty Ones
Have nice fat chairs that you can claw
And tear and snag with an impious paw?
And do the angels understand
That a little cat in a lonely land
Still longs for a kiss and a friendly cuff?

Celestial joys are not enough.
Please, some small saint in shining white,
Hold him close in your arms tonight.

Know this - your Andy is in very good company up there! We are here for you if you need to talk!

Much love,

Blue & JadeKitty:

Thank you for the poems. I have actually posted a poem in memory of Andy on the Literature Forum. Please check it out.

To Everyone one else I once again want to thank you for your thoughts. This is a very hard time for me. I miss him so much. I brought Andy to a couple of Cat Shows and all of his ribbons are hanging in my living room and he has a special award for being the 8th best Household pet kitten in Tica Last year. I want to tear the ribbons down cause everytime I see them it reminds me of what a sweet cat he was. I won't take them down because now it is a memorial to him. I just can't stand it. I want him back so bad. Nightime is hard too because he used to sit on my lap when I was watching TV and sleep with me at night. He was always be with me in my heart.

Michele I am so dearly sorry you lost your little one! What a terrible ordeal to have gone through for the last half of the month! My love goes out to you for your baby that never found his way home. I could only imagine the same devastation that would occur if I lost my fur baby. I don't even like to think about that! I know nothing can take his place, but maybe you'll find another little soul that you can pour all your love into just like Andy! My prayers went to you when you lost him and now my tears join yours! Take care!!

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss! I'm never very good with words in these situations. My heart goes out to you.

I am SO sorry to hear about your poor Andy!!!!!

I was close to tears when I read your post. I am so very very very sorry. I know the pain you must be feeling, and I wish there was someway I could help.

I must have somehow missed the thread about andy disappearing....I am finding out that there have been several threads I haven't seen, because I rely on my e-mail notification of new threads, and wasn't notified. I need to start checking more carefully.

Please forgive me for missing it, I had no idea!!!

I am saying a prayer for you to ease the pain.
