Big hugs Lizzie, its so sad to loose a best mate but think of him romping round like a puppy in his new happy place where the sun always shines and tummy rubs are endless.

I'm so sorry you have had to say goodbye to Gus. Dr Seuss's quote says it all, your lives have been made so much richer for having Gus in them. Give Miss Martha a cuddle from me, I am sure she is going to miss him and my thoughts are with you.

I'm so sorry Lizzie. I just lost our beloved kitty on Thursday. She was 15 years old and with us her entire life. I know what you're going through. I'm so sorry for your loss. There's nothing like losing a pet...it's a completely seperate thing from all other losses.

Just saw the beautiful photo of your Gus...it is never easy to let them make that journey across the Rainbow Bridge. It is comforting to know there is no more pain for them and to picture everyone rolling & tumbling around like puppies.
