Ah, sweet, beautiful Smudge Rest in peace baby boy

Kim, I'm so sorry for your family's loss of your little boy. You all gave him such a wonderful life, and made his last days as sweet as they could be. I know you will all miss him terribly. Even those of us who never had the pleasure of meeting him in person will feel this loss.

I know I am new here but one of the first post I ever read was about Smudge and I sat there crying and praying that he would recover. Not only was he beautiful but you could see just by looking at him that he was gentle and loving. I am so sorry for your loss and want you to know that thoughts and prayers are being sent your way from me and my family and Salem and Isis. Take pride in knowing that you did everything you could have done and that his life however short it was, was better because of you. Smudge is waiting for you and one day you will get to see him in all of his glory happy healthy and reunited with those that love him the most.

RIP Smudge

Thank you SOOO much everybody. It's amazing how one little cat can touch so many lives. I just want to impress on everyone the incredible sense of peace we got once he was gone. We were so sad, and when he went, it was like he came into us. It was a very moving experience, for the whole family.

Kim,
I am so sorry for your loss. Smudge was a beautiful little boy, with an amazing personality. He was a fighter till the end. You and your family were blessed for the time you spent with him. His time was short, but the paw print he left in so many hearts will never die.

RIP Dear Smudge

One last update - something nice - we got a card from the vet's office that was signed by all the workers, and some even wrote special things about Smudge. Also - we had him creamated separately, and received a beautiful oaken urn today that has a place for a photo.

I feel so bad. I just keep thinking of the day I took him to get him fixed and he was fine, and that was the last time he was happy. I thought I would get over this crying thing...

I cried about Jane yesterday, I was looking at some pictures of her and thinking almost exactly what you were. It's not easy to get over our little furry friends. You don't have to get over the crying thing.

Extra cyber hugs to you as you grieve the loss of Smudge. I think sometimes we get so focused on helping them through the illness that we forget how much we simply miss them when they are gone.

I hope you are able to get the cross stitch pattern of Smudge. He was such a handsome boy! Give Elsa and extra kiss for me tonight, ok?

I think that's what it is - I was looking at photos last night, and it made me miss him. I'll sure give Elsa a big smack. She's just so precious.

You will, but it takes time Some things will set of a crying jag from time to time. I started crying the other day about Molly. You will cry less and less and onen day you will realize that you haven't cried about him in quite a while. The good memories will overtake the painful ones.

Kim,
I haven't been able to get on here lately... it's been so busy. But, I've though about Smudge a lot. I read through this whole thread, and I understand how you feel because he got sick so fast. But just know that you did the right thing. He's in Heaven with the angels and Jesus now.
I said a prayer for little Smudge, and asked my baby Belle to play with him and keep him company.

I feel your pain and send my hugs as well. I lost my Leo kitty of 12 years recently and there are good days followed by sad days. This is the best place for prayers and support.
post #49 of 55
I personally don't think we ever get over the loss...we just learn to live with it. Sometime we can even smile at the memories of our beloved kitties who have gone before us. My prayer is that we will all be reunited again...healthy & strong.

I totally agree. We simply live with it and not get over it because a love is lost.

Dear little Smudge, enjoy that sunny patch over the bridge. Bat at the pretty flowers. We are sad that you had to cross so soon, but we are happy that you are a playful healthy kitten again.

Kim, I am so sorry for your loss of sweet Smudge. I know the pain can be intense. I believe you were Smudge's Meowmie for a reason. I believe God knew you'd take care of him and love him till it was time to send him on. Sometimes being used for love is the most painful thing. But to be worthy of being used to love is a great gift. Just remember the happy good times. Sometimes these loves only grace our lives for a few moments, but I believe we are better because of them too.

Wow! That's exactly how I feel, but you put it better. God gives us what we can handle, and Smudge was given his beautiful eyes so we would keep him because we were the ones that could handle helping him over the bridge.

I am so sorry. Julian has FIP also and was put to sleep not too long ago. I miss hm so much and I haven't cried that much as I have been distracting myself from thinking to much because of my father's recent death and Julian's. I can't even make a thread here because I know I don't know how to put all that I am going through into words.

R.I.P Smudge and Julian. They are playing together right now

Oh, I'm so sorry about Julian. He was a sweet boy and loved very much. He's playing with Smudgie and all the RB kitties.
