My kids

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I lost my beautiful girl Jessie to cancer 2 weeks ago. She was 17 years old and I loved her soooo much. It came on very fast and was shocking. Luckily she was not in pain. I was so lonely that I felt there was a hole in my heart. I ended up rescuing another kitty (I found jessie as a stray outside). I had found a kitten outside 6 mts prior to jessie's passing. My mom took the kitten to her barn because jessie did not like other animals. After jessie had passed, I went to the barn and brought the little kitten home and named her punkin. She had never been in a home before and cuddled like you wouldn't believe! We shared every dinner together and I hand fed her deli turkey (her favorite). She was 1 years old when I brought her home. I had taken her to the vet and at first my vet was concerned about her weight and overall health. After a week of medicine, punkin seemed to be doing a ton better!! One week later, yesterday, I woke to find her gone. It was so shocking and I just screamed and cried my fool head off. My vet offered to bury her in her memorial garden which I appreciated. My vet thinks that she died of FIP. She tested negative for FIV but since she was so sick and underweight, my vet thought it might be FIP. I sure hope they can come up with an accurate test and cure for this!!!
I am just heartbroken and overwhelmingly depressed especially since I lost both my kids within 2 weeks apart.
Please say a prayer for Jessie and Punkin that they are happy up in heaven.


Jessie and Punkin- prayers are flying
Thanks,
Aimee

Thank you so much. That brought tears to my eyes not only writing it but reading your replies. It helps to have people to talk to who truly understand what I am going through.
That means alot to me.
Thank you again.

Two shocks so close together are too much for anyone to bear. They are together at the Bridge.

Ugh, yes. It's just been miserable. My life is so empty and I am so depressed.
You are right, they are together at rainbow bridge and that is at least comforting to think about.

Thanks for replying.

Oh, Aimee! That is soo TRAGIC! I hope that you can take comfort in the fact that you gave both cats so much love and care - I'm sure they're across the Bridge together, each claiming bragging rights on having had the Best Meowmmy on the Whole Earth. Trying to fill the hole in your heart must feel like trying to cover up the Grand Canyon, but know that this too shall pass. And many are the little kitty hearts that beat tonight, longing for a place in your home, and such a fine, loving home it is! Peace & comfort, Susan

It is always so hard to lose our sweet babies.

Carolcat, thank you so much. I appreciate your kind words and prayers. It has been so difficult. I am just so sad but knowing that I will see them again does ease the pain a little. Thank you for the link.
I printed off the Rainbow Bridge poem after Jess passed and put her picture and the poem in a frame. I am making one for my Punkin too.
Thanks again

Oh I appreciate that so much. I feel so lucky that I found this site. Although my family is supportive and try to be understanding, they don't completely understand the depth of my sadness.

Oh my this is so sad.
To lose one much loved kit is awful but to lose two within such a short space of time is totally tragic. I do understand as this happened to me a few years ago. My little annie had a bad cancer and i made the decision to put her to sleep. on the very same day when I came back from the vet the stray I had been looking after jumped off a cupboard and just died! Two vet trips in one day broke my heart.
You wonder how you will cope but you will - remember that Jess is lookiing after Punkin and showing her around, introducing her to other wonderful friends to play with.
Pictures and poems bring them nearer to our hearts - what a lovely idea.
You are in my thoughts at this very sad time

Thank you for that. I appreciate it. I am sorry to hear of what you went through! That is so sad.
I love to look at their pictures. I keep trying to think of all the good times we had. I can't do that with out crying but that's ok.
Thanks for your kind words.

There are no words to say how sorry I am. I lost my Beloved Corkie 3 weeks ago yesterday and she went from a bladder infection to cancer to death in just ONE weeks time. I miss HER so much I too cannot stop crying and screaming.

They say we all belong to God and HE takes us according to HIS plan. I can accept that but since HE gets all of us for an eternity why can't he allow us to have our babies a bit longer. MY Corkie was only 2 weeks past her 15th birthday.

Have you tried any of the pet loss boards? I did a couple but they comfort you and then to on to the next person. If you are like ME you NEED to be constantly comforted, and not just dropped.

You can email ME if you want spootabsia@aol.com and maybe we coulc cry on each other's shoulders. I know I could sure use a friend! What about YOU?

Thanks hon! Yes that is why I came here because I needed to find people that could comfort me. It's so hard to get through this. It's hard to even get up everyday.
I will drop you an email.
