Dear dear Jimmycat





Poor Jimmy! My trip to the veterinarian to fix her hurt foot didn't go as planned. I had an x-ray taken which showed us that she truly did have a broken leg. Her small bone (radius) had snapped when she jumped off her rocking chair. Her bones looked spongy and were cancerous and couldn't be repaired. I had no clue she was sick——just delicate on her toes, which isn't so uncommon for a kitty of fourteen.
We spent one last night with her, fed her her favorite dish of tomatoes and put her to rest this Saturday. Bear with me, a tribute to my odd and fine kitty will follow. She's been my great companion during my adult life. I miss her so.

So sorry you have lost your kitty. My husband I were saying just last night how much comfort our cats bring us. Farewell Jimmycat.

Often it is hardest
doing the right thing...
Maybe it's a comfort
knowing that now,
Jimmy is resting easy.

Dear Kindra,

I know just how you feel....we lost or beloved Ralph in January and I still miss him. My husband and I talk about him everyday... and in our memories he still lives.

Hugs,

Theresa

Oh no Ms. Jimmy! So sorry to hear. There is a giant husky here at work, with bone cancer too, and he is a sad mountain of hair on the floor most days. Be thankful that Jimmy is resting peacefully, in all her odd ways, in feline heaven. Maybe she will be resurrected in a cuteoverload.com celebrity kitteh!

I'm so sorry about your little cat. They become so dear to us. Try to find a copy of the poem "Rainbow Bridge." It is so sweet and portrays such a nice image of our precious pets when they are gone.

Girl...I'm so sorry about your loss. She is in kitty heaven, that's for sure. You can take comfort in the fact that she had a wonderful life with you and that you gave her as much love as she gave to you. Be at peace, precious kitty.
