NSR: Saying goodbye....

Share |

Today hasn't been an easy one for our family, as we had to say goodbye to one of our beloved pets this morning.

Ani Noelle was my baby. Brent picked her out for me as a birthday present 15 years ago when she was just a 6 week old bundle of long silky black fur.

She was an odd cat, this one. She had the loudest purr imaginable and loved to be stroked, yet she was the biggest scaredy cat around and hid whenever people come over. She lived more or less out of Serena's closet for a good 10 years! I remember when our family went away on vacation and our friends came to take care of the cats for a week. Although I'd warned them that they likely wouldn't see her, they spent over an hour on that first night looking for her in all the nooks & crannies, under the beds, convinced she had disappeared into thin air!

This morning, we had a chance to say our goodbyes before her cancer-ridden body was put to rest. She was stroked and petted until the very end, purring her love to us all the while.

Go in peace, darling Ani.


So sorry to hear about Ani...I'm sending you a virtual hug. C2.
Heartfelt sympathies to you and yours.
Sorry to hear about your kitty. It's one the hardest things I've ever had to do. Thinking of you and your family.
My sympathy to you and your family. It is not easy to say goodbye to a beloved pet, but the memories will last forever.
My eyes are filled with tears as I write this little note to you, Caroline. It's such a difficult thing to say goodbye to our beloved fur children and I can so feel your pain.

Ani Noelle was fortunate to have shared her little life with such a loving family just as you were fortunate to have shared your lives with her.

Sending you hugs.
Heartfelt sympathies to you and your family. Saying goodbye to a loved furry member of the family is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Even now, many many years later, I still think of when we lost our very first kitty, and we've had a lot of them. Her little furry body may not be with you, but she will live on in your memories. Pets are such wonders--I can't wait until we can get a kitty for Charlotte.
This breaks my heart!...from someone who has 4 cats, this breaks my beart because our oldest cat is over 11 years old. I feel your pain.
