Toes Tuesday with Sniffie

The Bridge has a new Angel. Sniffie is gone. We took her at 10:45. She's at peace now. My heart is aching.

Sniffie loves to sleep in the little cat scratcher. She likes to lean her sweet face on her toes when she sleeps.

{{{{Sniffie}}}}

The truest words of all: I will not forget you. You are in my waking thoughts, my sweetest memories, my dearest dreams. I will not forget you. You have touched my soul, opened my eyes, changed my very experience of the universe. I will not forget you. I see you in the flowers, the sunset, the sweep of the horizon and all things that stretch to infinity. I will not forget you. I have carved you on the palm of my hand. I carry you with me forever.
— Ellen Sue Stern

We love you.
Purrs and hugs to your Mom and Dad and brothers and sisters...

I am so, so sorry to hear this, but I know you did what was in her best interests.

And Sniffie is not gone. She will always be with you in your heart and in spirit. Believe me, I still feel my Thomas around me and he's been gone for 9 years now.

It's a very difficult time, and your heart will ache for a while, but afterwards you'll smile at the good memories.

Sniffie is the one who is well and at peace on the Bridge. It's everyone who is left behind that misses her so dearly.

You have my deepest sympathies.

I am so sorry for your loss. As the mom to six... now four... senior citizen kitties, I know how difficult that last decision is. I am always grateful that the kitties and my dogs are so loving as to help me in that decision... they always let me know it is time. They give us so much in life, it is the best we can do for them to ease their pain and let them go.

We did a tribute on our blog for the little girl we got so attached to over the last who-knows-how-long we've known all of you. It's nothing fancy, but it's what we could do on the fly. We so wish it didn't come to this, but now the healing can begin for everyone.

Happy Cat Family

Tia said...

Sniffie's mummy, I'm not going to tell Sniffie goodbye. You don't tell people that you will see again goodbye. Rather, my parting words are, "Until we meet again, Sniffie. Oh, and save me a bit of fish up there! I'll be a while, but I'll still need someone to share food with me!" I haven't known her for long, but what I did see was beautiful. If I could, Sniffie's mum, I'd even let you rub my tummy so that you could feel better, and I wouldn't put the bitey on you. Snuggle with your cats, let us grieve with you, then let us do what we cats do best and begin the healing of your heart.

Much love. My human says to tell you: Know that Sniffie's sweetness will linger far longer than this dreadful pain ever will.

Tia and human Carly

We are so sorry to hear that Sniffie is gone. She was beautiful. I cried when I went back and read previous posts, as I didn't know Sniffie, and wanted to know what happened. It made me remember my Ya-Ya Doodles who died of cancer about 2 years ago.
