R.I.P.

oh peanut how i will miss you

Today was so hard. I had to put my kitty Peanut down. It was one of the toughest things I have ever had to do, and I know many of you can relate. I am grateful for the 12 years of fun with this little feller, and will miss him terribly. Fingers crossed that there is a great beyond for the fur friends, and I know my boy will be wildly popular over there. SNIFF.

Oh, I am so, so honestly sorry.
I cannot even begin to imagine this, my neighbor had to put her 7 year old poodle down a few days before Christmas, it was heartbreaking.
I hope you feel better soon.

Kitty Stampede said...

I am so so so sorry drollgirl!!!
I wish I could say something to make it all better and the pain go away. He was SO LUCKY to have you as an owner. seriously. If I was a cat I would want you as my owner. :) And I know how much you loved him.
Losing animals is sooo tough. I've lost 2 family dogs (never a cat yet), and the first one that died I never cried like that before in my life, my whole body quaked with tears of pain. It hurts so bad. Because they make such amazing companions that you get so close to and they love us unconditionally..you were blessed for him to be your kitty! always remember that.
time will heal the pain..(Big Bear Hug)
...if you need to talk, I'm here.

Claire Kiefer said...

oh my goodness, I'm terribly sorry and sad for you. Parting with a pet is the worst thing ever . . . especially one that has adorable freckles on his nose. I hope you start to feel a little better soon, and for the record I believe that if anyone goes to heaven, it's pets. Will be thinking of you!

Gabbi said...

I'm sorry to hear about Peanut. Even when gone, our pets live with us forever. Lots of positive thoughts and prayers with you...

Caitlin said...

Tikimama said...

I do know how it feels; I've had to go through it too, a few times now. If you haven't already, make a little shadowbox or frame a favorite photo of him to remind you of the good life he had and so you can see his handsome face and smile. {{hugs}}

Kaz said...

He was a very lucky boy to have had you in his life :)

Fancy! New Zealand Design Blog said...

Poor Peanut, poor Droll Girl!!! And yes, it is one of the worst things to have to go through.

Take extra special care of yourself!!!

Kristine said...

Oh I'm so so sorry for your loss! Peanut was very lucky to have you and I'm sure you have many wonderful memories. It is so painful to lose a fur buddy. Hope you are taking really good care of yourself and having lots of cuddles with Leo. I'm really sorry.

Jessica said...

I'm so sorry. Sadly I can relate it's a horrible feeling I hated having to put my Pomeranian down but he was very sick at the time.
My grandmother died this past week so I've been really down and let it take a hold of me. I'm trying to get out of it because it really sucks.
All you can do it give yourself time.

CAPow! said...

So sorry about Peanut, it's definitely one of the toughest things EVER to have to put down your best friend. I definitely know how you're feeling right now :(

Felicia said...

Oh my gosh, I am so sorry!! I know how you must be feeling right now. If you need a Facebook hug, just let me know, :)

Ooohhh, I'm so sorry, this is so sad. I had hoped he would recover. That must have been a terrible decision. BIG HUG!

Kitten said...

So sorry to hear about your little Peanut. I know how much he meant to you. Pets are members of the family, and I hope, like you do, that we will meet our furry family members in the afterlife. Many hugs to you, friend.

liz said...

so sorry for your loss! Losing a pet is really hard, my childhood kitty died after 14 years a few years ago. (and weirdly enough, I developed a cat allergy after that). If there's a heaven, I think it accepts all creatures, including kittys!

tulpen said...

Awww. Despite my feelings for cats in general, I do happen to love you, so therefore will mourn Peanut's passing.

Trixie said...

Oh no. I'm so sorry. Much love to you. It's always heartbreaking :(

If there isn't a great beyond with animals then count me out.

sweet kitty rest in peace

Alisa said...

I am so sorry about Peanut. It's heart breaking!

Georgina Dollface said...

Kathryn said...

Oh dear. I'm so sorry DG. It's very, very tough to loose a dear heart like that. Thinking of you...

Melanie's Randomness said...

Oh no. I'm sorry to hear about your kitty. May he rest in kitty heaven!!

Down and Out Chic said...

a loss of a pet is harder that most people who don't have pets can imagine. i really am so sorry for you loss and as i've said many times before, i wish i could give you a hug and buy you a beer.

Kalika Brooke said...

He has gorgeous eyes, it's hard but i know how you feel. I had to put down my two dogs , of old age and disease on the same day, worst day ever! Cheers to you peanut, i hope it's nicer where you are.
