Whiskers, The Cat

1987 - September 21, 2004

The Rainbow Bridge A beautiful eulogy to all the pets we've lost in our lives. Thanks, Doris

Dear Betty and Family,

I was so very sorry to hear about Whisker's death. What a great life you all had together these 17 years, though, and what love you all shared! I too, have tears as I write this messgae because I've had to put down 2 dogs and a kitty, and you might as well be putting your own kids down, it hurts so much. My heart goes out to you all at this sad time. Remember, when you least expect it, you'll hear a rustle of papers, or feel a light touch against your leg or on your bed at night. Whiskers will be looking out for you! Ever on duty! Hugs to you all,

Dear Betty and family, I am VERY sorry to hear of Whisker's passing. He gave you 17 yrs. of unconditional love and companionship........pets are cherished beings and I firmly believe our pets are gifts from God. Have faith in knowing our pets will meet us in Heaven. Make a framed memorial plaque.......favorite photos of Whiskers throughout the years with his birth and death year on the plaque. I did this with my helps. My prayers, understanding and love are with you at this very sorrowful time.

Hi Betty!

I'm so sorry to hear about Whiskers...Pets are such an important part of our lives - it is very hard to lose them.

Oh Betty, I am so sorry for your loss. Anyone who is loved by their pets knows how heartbreaking this is. I had a cat (Kitsy) for 22 years and cried for 2 weeks when she died. She came into our lives when my mother was pregnant with me and was with me throughout childhood, adolescence & young adulthood. May Whiskers rest in peace.

Hi Betty

I am so sorry to hear about our beloved cat - however he is now with all his friends up in glory. He can now roam around wherever he pleases. He is now in perfect hands with his creator. No more sickness, no more tears, just perfect sunshine and love all the time. God bless him.

It was wonderful having him in my home during those couple of summers. He had his full run of the apartment and soon realized he wasn't the only pet around. He became very infatuated with Love and Sunshine, my parakeets. Each night I came home from work, Whiskers would inch closer and closer to the cage.....when finally he was sprawled on top of the cage. Too close for comfort for the little birdies. I had to move them to higher ground. Each night after that I would come home to Whiskers in his "cleopatra" pose and looking up longingly at the small feathered creatures.

He would always somehow acknowledge me with his sweet meows whenever I sweet-talked him. Whiskers, may you continue to live in our hearts forever! You will be missed greatly.

My condolences.

Hi Betty, Oh dear, I am so sorry to hear about your cat. I can so relate to what you are going through. I am sure you remember Arnie had a stroke too. We do love our animals and it it very,very traumatic when things go awry. No matter how old they are, it is tough. I will keep thinking about him til I hear from you.

Be in touch.
Love, Lyn (9/22/04)

Card: "Our pets have a forever place in our hearts, where every happy memory is tucked away with love. Hoping that the warmth and comfort of all your happy memories will someday take the place of the sadness you feel now. With heartfelt sympathy." (American Greetings).

I do understand your feelings and thoughts for Whiskers. You will remember the comfort and companionship he offered those 17 years.

Love, Lyn (10/2/04)

Hi Betty, You are more than welcome. I do know about love for animals. You will continue to miss Whiskers. I hope you have some nice photos of him. I made a little booklet after Arnie died. I don't even have one for my grandchildren.

Lyn (10/7/04)

We will truly miss his presence in our daily lives, from greeting us when we came home and always managing to find a spot on anyone's lap. He gave and received affection unconditionally. I thank God that He allowed him to spend all this time with us, but I guess it was time for him to go home.... We miss him so much....
