Oh my heart is breaking for you right now. I know my words will bring no comfort, but know I care and am praying for you.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy

I'm so sorry for your loss. I've never been to your blog before (this was posted at the cat blogosphere) and don't know you. I do know what this kind of loss is though and it's hard. Sometimes harder than the loss of a human relative. They depend on us, they love us unconditionally and in the end the only thing we can do is let them go peacefully. Piper is out of pain and has no more suffering but yours is still there and nothing and no one but time can take it away. We pray that your memories will be a salve to your broken heart.

The M's

Kate, Piper loved you and she will always be in your heart. You and Mike are very special people, Piper knew that about you. You are in our thoughts and purrayers.

Forty Paws

We're very sorry for the loss of Piper and your Grandma Dee. That's a lot to absorb in one week. We're sending you pawsitive thoughts.

I have come over from the Cat Blogosphere. I am very sorry to hear about your loss.

About two years ago, I was where you were--wondering how I failed a cat I had lost and had to euthanize because of a disease--if only this that and the other. I should have know... I should have.

I realized after a year or so that you know, she was my cat. She had a good life. She didn't blame me for what I didn't do. She loved me for all those wonderful things I did. Be kind to yourself.

It always seem harder when it comes without warning like this. But Piper loved you, and she knew you loved her.

We don't know you at all, we were led here from The M's, via the Cat Blogosphere. But we are sorry for your loss; for both your losses.

Samantha, Tigger and Mom

We are so sorry for both your losses. We saw this at the M's. We are puurrrring and purrraying for you. Mom is sad, she lost her kitty the same way and she understands how you feel. Sudden is so much harder. We will keep you in our thoughts.
Be blessed,
Samantha & Tigger

I am very very sorry for your loss.


Awww, Katie, I am so sorry about Piper! A big to you, Mike and Caspian all the way from California!


Oh, Katy-girl, I'm so so sorry. I know all too well what this feels like and I wish I could take that pain away for you.

I'll repeat to you what those around me having been saying about our recent pet losses. Piper knew how much you loved her. Really, she did. She was as alive and vibrant even to the end because *that* is how she wanted you to remember her. I didn't know you when you lost Romeo, but I gather he was another pet---and now they are together over the Rainbow Bridge, playing and in full health!

Cry, darling. It's okay. I've got my Maxwell's ashes right here on my desk and I still cry. But don't forget it's okay to laugh, too. It's okay to remember those good times. It's okay if you're the strong one one minute and crying like a baby the next minute. Love Mike. Love Caspian. Love yourself.

Every minute you're alive and remembering her, she's still alive in you. I hope you and Mike (and Caspian) find some peace in her passing.



I'm so very sorry to hear about your Grandma and Piper sweetie!!! You've had such a rough week and I sincerely wish there was something I could do or say to take the hurt away. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I know you have many wonderful memories of them both and I hope they'll help ease your sorrow in the days ahead. Huge hugs and love to you!!!

Sigh. I've been through things like this sooo many times, but it never gets any easier. The first time is the worst. They really ARE your babies, and you feel like a failure, I know. This is life, and sometimes it sucks. That's about what it comes down to. Just keep on giving love to every animal you ever have and help each one through the cycle of life. They will sure do the same for you! It took me about two weeks of crying to get to a more comfortable point the last time this happened to me. Take the time...it helps.


being a Mommy is the hardest job in the world. sending you love and prayers that perhaps your heart will ache a little bit less tomorrow than it does today.


I have written this comment 10 times and just don't know how to say it. I know you hurt now, but remember the good times with her and remember she was very lucky to have such wonderful parents and she is in a better place. The Bible tells us that not a sparrow falls from the sky that He does not know about. God just took one very special little kitty home. I love you and am in constant prayer for your healing.


Oh Sweetie.. I'm so very sorry. I read your post and I'm teary eyed as I know just how you feel. So many big hugs your way...


Oh Sweetie I am soo sad! Give Mike a hug for me and that way you will get one back from me too! Take care!

Hey katy I do not have the words to tell you how sorry I am and that even though she is gone from you right now you will see her ini heaven one day, she will be playing on some clouds. hehe.... K I love you so much and I hope that you and mike feel a little better.


I grieve with you! I lost my baby cat, Squeakie, a few years ago & it's enough to tear your heart out. Bless you - my thoughts & prayers are with you.


Oh, my heart breaks for you. I know exactly how you are feeling -- I went through something very similar in March 2006 with my beloved Indy. She was just a month shy of her 15th birthday and had been healthy and active until about a week before I had to make THE DECISION. I cried and cried.

Keep in mind that she loved you and she loved living with you.
