life here will never be the same without my Bu

16 years and 8 months ago i fell in love with this tiny little bundle of fluff.

Yesterday, Thursday 15 October, 2009

i lost the love of my life.

His spirit wanted to stay, and he fought really hard but his body couldn’t take anymore.

He tried waiting for me and i only missed him by moments.

i craddled him in my arms for hours
i wanted never to leave him

Today is my first day i need to learn to be without him.

Oh Perry,

Death is no enemy of man; it
is a friend who, when the work of
life is done, just cuts the cord that
binds the human boat to earth, that
it may sail on smoother seas.

You will see both of them Again!

Patricia, ti sono vicino con tutto il cuore! Ti abbraccio. Tito.

Dear PG,
Sorry to hear that your treasured feline has left you, no doubt the sorrow to go was in his heart too. One day you will see him again, until then he will wait for you.
Remember the good times, and embrace the tears, for they are love.
big hugs!

This brings tears to my eyes, I am so sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine if anything happened to one of my dogs, there is nothing that can replace that special bond we share with our pets.

CIao Perugina, mi dispiace moltissimo. In questi giorni ho un amico che ha il suo amico pappagallo morente in casa. L'ho visto, è uno struggimento. Coraggio Perugina. Ti sono accanto col pensiero.

We have lost dearly loved cats, so I can understand how you feel. It’ll take time, but in the end you will find comfort in the happy memories you shared – they can never be taken from you.

Whilst he is in your heart, he will never be far.

Renate said...

So sorry to hear about your loss Patricia you had wonderful 18 years together and collected a lot of precious memories and with time they will console your heart.

Colin said...

Aw, I know the heartbreak of losing (dogs). And quite soon to be, cats – age 13 and 14. My thoughts are with you, Pat. It’s very easy for some to belittle the demise of an animal. But those of us who know the real sentience and spirit of a close pet, know better.

Cheryl said...

I’m so sorry for your loss Patricia. I know how much Buffy meant to you. What a sad time for you. Thinking about you. xxx

Suzie said...

Oh I am so sorry for your loss Patricia and completely understand the measure of love you feel for your bundle of fluff. He will be missed terribly. I have my own bundle of joy – Sparkie the wonder dog, who is currently asleep on my bed. For such a small dog he has a big personality and is an integral part of our family. So I understand the importance of Bu to you and genuinely feel for you. Take care of yourself. Love Sooz xox

Hi Patricia, The price we pay for having such lovely companions for so many years…is the sadness we feel when they die. They are family members aren’t they? Take comfort that he had a happy life in a loving home, so many animals never have that. I firmly believe animals/pets pass over into the world of spirit and we will all be reunited again. What a beautiful photo this is. Big hugs ~ Anni xoxox

Steph said...

aww Patricia!! my thoughts are with you..sending you long distance hugs my friend XOXOXOX

My beloved Smokey wandered away from home and never came back. She was 17 and I had grown up with a beautiful grey and white ball of fun. I called out every evening for weeks her name but she never appeared and through time the sense of loss and feline emptiness eased. I send you my memory with hope and that happy memories of Buffy never fade.
Lots of love,

Ana said...

sorry to hear about your loss…hugssss

I felt your pain. Knowing how hard it was for you when coco passed.
Our animals become our family and love us unconditionally.
As you , passed on your love unconditionally.

Yasemin said...

I'm very very sorry for your loss. He looks so gorgeous...

Nick said...

Cats are the best, feel lucky you were privileged to be owned by him. It never seems possible at a time like this, but he'll come back into your life -- maybe a different color, and a new side to his personality, but he'll be back!

Lo siento mucho , son como miembros de la familia, entiendo tu pena, änimos,

Awww...Perugina, I'm SO sorry for the loss of your Bu. It's gut wrenching to lose a beloved pet. I lost my cat, Raven a few years ago and I still miss her. I kept thinking I saw her out of the corner of my eye for a long time. I'll bet you'll experience the same. You'll always miss him but time will leave you with many good memories.
