One Last Goodbye

We have dedicated this section to our furry friends who have recently passed. The loss of a family pet, is in fact , losing a family member. We know just how hard it is to say goodbye to a beloved animal.

Email Us Your Dedications

We would like to encourage people to please send dedications of pets lost and we will include them in this section. Please  Click Here to email.

    You were such a comfort to us when we were going through such hard times. Thank you for being such a wonderfully
    lovable and malleable cat. Never has a cat had such a following.
   
    You are missed by so many. We love you very much, Big Guy.

    In Loving Memory of

    Scamp “Small One”
    (01 December 2009) - (08 August 2010)
     “No one loves you unconditionally as your beloved pet.”


    If Tears Could Build a Stairway

    If tears could build a stairway
    And memories were a lane
    We would walk right up to Heaven
    And bring you back again.

    No farewell words were spoken
    No time to say goodbye
    You were gone before we knew it
    And only God knows why?

    Our hearts still ache in sadness
    And secret tears still flow
    What it meant to lose you
    No one will ever know.

    But now we know you want us
    To mourn for you no more
    To remember all the happy times
    Life still has much in store.

    Since you’ll never be forgotten
    We pledge to you today
    A hallowed place within our hearts
    Is where you’ll always stay.

    We Miss you boy!


    Faizel & Jo

   Lily & Mika
 

   Little Lily (a ginger lady) and Mika were adopted shelter in February 2007. These loving little sisters were inseparable
   and loved curling up on our laps. Sadly, both passed away from FIP in June 2007. I still look at this photo and wish they
   were still with us.

     My Pretty One: Tigger

     You loved to play in water.
     We loved to watch you. You were our “Watch-Cat”, growling at all strangers (visiting cats).
     We loved to watch you. You filled our lives for such a short time.
     We love you Pretty One.

     I hear his fimiliar Siamese voice in the house, I almost see him.
     I feel him lying on my chest just to realize he's not coming back.
     I don't have a nice verse that I can send you, it feels as if nothing will do justice to my pain & the joy this amazing kitty
     has brought me.

     I'll always miss you, you were gone too soon.

    Gone To Soon

    We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
    We thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
    We think of you in silence. We often speak your name.
    Now all we have is memories, and your picture in a frame.
    Your memory is our keepsake, with which we’ll never part.
    God has you in his keeping.
    We have you in our heart.

    We Miss you boy!

Lilo

We adopted my boy Lilo from Kitty Shelter. We fell in love with him instantly and had to make him part of the family. He was with us about 6 months and then he started to lose weight, wouldn't eat and was very lethargic. We took him to the vet and they wanted to keep him overnight. We were sure we could bring him home but the next day the vet phoned us with devastating news that he had FIP and there was no cure or treatment. We had no choice but to put him down as he was in pain and was suffering. The loss of this special sole has left a gaping hole in our hearts.

I miss you my boy!


Michelle and Jayson

Ima

This month we had to say Goodbye to our beloved Ima , who was a special mommy cat rescued from the townships 9 years ago, she was so sickly in the first year that we decided she couldn’t be homed, so she lived out her very happy, healthy life with Bella her daughter, at Merien’s house. Earlier this month we found out she had colon cancer and even though we tried to operate it was too far gone. She will be missed by The Smidt family and of course Bella. We love you always our darling Ima.
