Raz earns his wings

Thank you to Ann of Zoolatry for these beautiful badges.



Thank you to all who sent encouraging words,  purrs and prayers for Raz.  He earned his wings yesterday.  We miss him so very much.  We already have some posts scheduled but are not sure how much commenting we will be able to do.  We are so very heartbroken.


His pal, Angel Sammy, sent this balloon down to him to help him in his journey.

We are heartbroken to learn that sweet Raz has left this earth. We send gentle purrs of comfort to his Mom, Miss Sharon, and to his fursibs, Noelle and Reesie. Did you know that in Hebrew, Raz means "a secret" - and Raz certainly knew the secret of loving and of being loved. He is watching over you now, from the Rainbow Bridge, because he loves you still, and when your time comes to join him, he will welcome you and you will be together once more.
Fly free, dear Raz, safe in the Paw of the Great Cat in the Sky.

Dear Sharon
I am so very very sorry to read about Raz's passing.
He was beloved and treasured. He was a Angel Madi's beau.
Such a gentle cat who walked thru this world on 4 beautiful white paws.
In my mind's eye, I see so many of his family and friends greeting him and FINALLY he and Madi are walking on clouds together.
With love and understanding
Cecilia

Chip, Chessie, MomKaren are indescribably sad, even though we all know that we WILL all be together again someday. It still breaks our hearts. And we ache for MomSharon. But she know we all understand how she feels and share her pain! Mom has put the photo she has of SammyK, Hermes, and Raz, all angels now, in their hot tub on her watch face!!! Love, purrs, and hugs to you all!

M Dawson said...

Sharon, I wanted to wait until I was at my computer to send my condolences of the loss of delightful and handsome Raz. I am usually sad when I write and smartphone screens don't work well with tears.

Raz was such a joy to see in your lovely blog banners and losing him must hurt. I send huge hugs from me. Just know you may be far away but you are still close to my heart as you grieve.

Susan from Bucks County said...

John Bellen said...

This is very sad to me. I wish Raz could have stayed longer, but no matter how long he would have stayed, it would not have been long enough. Godspeed, Raz.

Angel, Kirby and Max said...

The passing of Raz has made us very sad. We feel there must have been a great party when he got there, Siblings ans friends

Loulou said...

Oh, we did not know Raz well but oh, what a beautiful kitty with the most wonderful eyes, and we are so, so sad for your loss. But also so glad for your time with Raz. Heartbroken is not a strong enough feeling ever for losing a beautiful friend/kitty.

Katie Isabella said...

I am heartbroken for you and Raz's siblings. The pain is so hard to bear when they leave us for their journey, we love them so much. I loved that Angel Sammy sent that balloon down for Raz to joib him at the Bridge. I know he was welcomed with love and purrs.

Cat and DOG Chat With Caren said...

I am heartbroken along with you to hear about Raz. I was hoping that it was IBD and not Lymphoma....I wasn't sure if the Vet told you exactly which one it was. My heart goes out to you. Cody had the same symptoms (but after his botched biopsy he bled to death), it wasn't until after he passed we found out it was IBD and he could have lived a few more years. It is beyond heartbreaking and I know the pain you are feeling. Sending many, many prayers of strength, love and my deepest sympathy.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Simply I am so sorry. I know the amount of emptiness and sadness is equivalent to the amount of love in your heart. I hope that one day, and one day soon, that love will fill in the one of loss and help heal your heart. We will miss Raz.

Kitties Blue said...

So sorry for not commenting here until now. Ann made Raz a beautiful badge. It is very hard to believe Raz is gone. It seems like just yesterday when he was a little guy. He had the most expressive face with those big eyes, and we always loved hearing about his antics, especially Sawyer, who loved that they had so much in common. We will always remember Raz and carry him in our hearts. Love, purrs and hugs from all of us to all of you. Sawyer send extra special whisker kisses and love to Noelle. πŸ’•πŸ’“πŸ«ΆπŸ»❣️πŸ’”

Marvelous Marv said...

Sharon, I am beyond sad. Raz was such a wonderful cat. Thank you for sharing him and his escapades with us. He was a pillar of the blogosphere! I know that Allie, Ellie, Sniffie, Tamir, Clifford and Cubby and cousin Trooper were all waiting for him (Along with all the other befores from the blogosphere). It is always so difficult when our furbabies are not well and the courage it takes to let them go is always heartbreaking. I wish I were closer and could give you a hug. I send you my love and strength. Barb

Savannah's Paw Tracks said...

Savannah and I are very sad to know that Raz has left blogville for The Bridge. He has so many pals, so we are certain he is being well cared for and that he is once again as healthy as a newborn.

Mom L here—my time with Savannah is growing shorter and shorter. Yet she still shows all the signs of wanting to remain with us. So we watch her closely day by day. I so understand your loss. Purrs and Paw Pats

We are so sorry to hear dear Raz has had to leave you and all his followers and pals in the blogosphere and beyond. He'll be missed I know. He will be with you always and forever, and I am sure you will meet again in this life if not the next. All sentient beings, all creatures, move through the cycle of life death and rebirth.
