I can hardly believe I am saying this but my wonderful boy Charly has just been put to sleep due to heart failure.

He went peacefully which is a blessing but I cannot imagine life without him.:~(

Bye bye my special boy. Thanks for all the years of love you gave me. xxxxxxxxxxx

18-Aug-10, 14:35
so sorry liz for your lose xxxx

Your favorite chair is vacant now...
No eager purrs to greet me.
No softly padded paws to run
Ecstatically to meet me.
No coaxing rubs, no plaintive cry
Will say it's time for feeding.
I've put away your bowl, and all
The things you won't be needing;
But I will miss you little friend,
For I could never measure
The happiness you brought me,
The comfort and the pleasure.
And since God put you here to share
In earthly joy and sorrow;
I'm sure there'll be a place for you
In Heaven's bright tomorrow...

18-Aug-10, 14:36
Yes I truly believe I will meet him again Unicorn which is a great comfort.

Just hard not having him here to cuddle and kiss.:( I couldn't have wished for a better companion.

18-Aug-10, 16:06
I'm so sorry to here of your sad news.:~(

Charly was more than a cat he was your own very special wee angel that will carry on looking after you now that he's gone.

Big hugs from across the water.x

18-Aug-10, 16:43
Ahhhhhh sorry to hear this.

18-Aug-10, 18:05
So, so sorry Liz......

Some people think it's "just losing a pet", but to those of us who know how precious our pets are, it's definetley like "losing a part of your family" :~(

My sincere good wishes to you and your sister, Liz, and always remember that Charly was a very lucky cat the day he came to your door!

You gave him a happy life, full of fun, good food, freedom, and a lap to cuddle into with so much love; what more could any cat wish for? Take comfort from the fact you gave him that and more, Liz.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Liz ! XXX

18-Aug-10, 18:39
so sorry to hear about your lose you were so kind to me when i had a lose i just do not know what to say xxxxxxxx

18-Aug-10, 19:57
So sorry to hear your sad news Liz, you have your lovely memories and knowledge he is running around on Rainbow Ridge free of any pain and is looking down on you thanking you for the lovely, happy years you gave him.

18-Aug-10, 20:16
I cannot thank you all enough for the wonderful, loving messages.

I am so very grateful as they have been a great comfort to me.

We buried Charly under a tree in his favourite spot in the garden. Someone was playing the bagpipes in the hall next door so my darling boy had a lament to send him on his way! xxx

The lovely Miss Molly has been such a comfort today and I am sure Charly brought her here as he knew he was going to leave us. She stayed with me this morning which is unusual as she usually stays in my bedroom and also sat beside the sofa where I had placed Charly's body.
I am so proud of Suzy as she is being so brave. Benjy has gone a bit hyper but I know this is because he is upset.
I'm taking the homepathic remedy Ignatia and giving it to my pets as well and it really helps.

Charly has actually performed a wee miracle before he left I think as, before now, I had to keep shutting Molly in the bedroom as she was frightened of Benjy but today I didn't and, although she hisses at him now and again, she is being very good and Benjy is able to give her kisses bless him.

Sorry if I am rambling (well more than usual!:lol:) but I am sooo tired.

God Bless you all and sending you lots of cyber hugs. xxx

When tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see;
The sun will rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
Remembering how I'd lay my head
In your lap that special way.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too.

But when tomorrow starts without me.
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name
And petted me with her hand.
She said my place was ready,
In Heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.
But, as I had to turn away,
A tear fell from my eye,
For all my life I never thought
That I would have to die.
I had so much to live for,
So many things to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you. I thought about our lives together,
I know you must be sad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.

I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last;
For you see, each days's the same day,
There's no longing for the past.
I'd always been so faithful,
So trusting, loyal, true;
Though there were times I did things,
You knew I shouldn't do.

But good cats are forgiven,
And now at last I'm free;
I know you're right here by my side,
And will wait right here with me;
So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart.
For every time you think of me,
I'm right there, in your heart.

18-Aug-10, 20:35
Very fitting that someone was playing bagpipes today. As I said earlier I'm so sorry Charly had to go, he couldn't have wished for a better Mam though x

18-Aug-10, 20:43
Iffy that is such a beautiful poem. Thanks for sharing it.xx

Cheers Carasmam. xx

18-Aug-10, 22:12
Liz, I'm so sorry to hear that 'Charly' is no longer here, although he will always be with you. Take care, :(

19-Aug-10, 23:03
So sorry :( RIP Charley.

20-Aug-10, 13:50
Thanks both.xx

I am missing him even more today. Missing him coming to meet me in the morning for his cuddle and following me around like a wee dog.Missing his beautiful cuddles where he would put his head under my chin. Missing him walking around the garden with me singing as he went.
He really was the most special wee cat and has left his beautiful pawprints on my heart.
I am so grateful that he chose to come and live with me.

Love you Charly. xxxx:~(:~(

20-Aug-10, 15:37
Aw such a shame Liz.
Genuinely hope you feel better soon.

20-Aug-10, 16:51

20-Aug-10, 21:42

20-Aug-10, 22:30
Cheers elamanya. xx

Aw bless you Teenybash. He will definitely always be in heart. Just miss his physical presence. So glad I will see him again one day.xxx

20-Aug-10, 22:40
I came and shared a while with you,
You shared your life with me too.
I put my claws where I should not,
But this is all now forgot.
There were times I made you mad,
Other times I made you glad.
Do not grieve for me.
For every day my pawsteps you will see.
No matter ,I'll be always in your heart
You and I will never part.

20-Aug-10, 23:15
What a lovely poem Lizz. Thanks xxx

I can honestly say though that Charly never made me mad.:D He really was the perfect pet.:D

21-Aug-10, 07:33

I am so very sorry, Liz. You know that the rawness of your loss will ease with time and if there were words to speed the process up, I would type them but there are none. Take comfort from knowing that you gave Charly the best life possible. Hugs to you and your furbabies, Liz. RIP, sweet Charly. xx

21-Aug-10, 23:08
I appreciate that Margaret. xx

Having lost more pets than I would like I know from experience that the horrible raw pain will ease and be replaced with wonderful memories of a truly beautiful cat.
Each loss is like it is the first.

I feel that it is worth it though for the many years of unconditional love and companionship they give us.
