« Guarding The Grain | Main | Just Two, Thank You Very Much »

September 16, 2006


I am so sorry, i dont no what to say, i lost my cat last year, the pain is still there, i am forever impressed with the love you and alayne have for each of your animals. kim

No matter how many times we lose one of our furry friends, it is so hard. Steve - I would be worried about you if you weren't an emotional wreck about losing Missy.

Thank you for taking care of her, and loving her when noone else would. She knew you were there with her to the end. All my best.

Steve and Alayne,
I don't think there is anything that could be said to make you feel better. But I am so very sorry for you, I have lost my share of beloved pets and I cry (no bawl) every time. As I read your letter, my heart broke for you both. You both are amazing and special. ALL of your animals are blessed to be with you. Every animal should have someone like you to be with them at the end. God Bless you both.

It is so hard to lose them. I have a foster girl, Dottie that was a breeder and just dumped at the shelter. She had to have a mastectomy due to tumors. So she is recouperating with me until we get the lab results. She is so scared of everything. And so grateful for a kind word. But so pretty. It was wonderful of you to give her all of the care and love.

Steve and Alayne: I am sooo sorry to hear about your loss of precious Missy. You gave her love and compassion. Animals know they are loved to the very end. You have my condolences.

I have cats of my own and have fostered and it doesn't matter whether you have them 10 days or 10 years, when you take them into your heart, it breaks when you have to put one down. I've never understood someone who doesn't stay with the animal at the end and I admire you for being there and loving your animal. I think it makes a difference also.

My heart truly goes out to you. I'm certain Missy knew you were there, even as her soul departed her physical body. These things never get easier, do they, no matter how many times you have to go through them? (I'm far from dry-eyed as I type this comment.) But I suppose it's good to come unglued each and every time. It certainly shows how much your life (or mine or any other animal lover's) has become intertwined with those of the animals that have touched us. No doubt Missy is now at the Rainbow Bridge, frolicking about in a body that does everything she wants it to. And no doubt she's watching over all of you at RDR.

Steve, I'm so sorry to learn of Missy's passing. You and Alayne took exceptional care of her; 10 years of a wonderful life! I'm sure she knew you were with her during her last moments. Bless you for your commitment to be there for her.
Sending you comfort, love and reflection during this very difficult time.

Three old feline friends have slipped away in my arms. I'm convinced that at some level they're aware of, and comforted by, our presence. Please accept my condolences.

I'm soooo sorry to hear about Missy. It's always hard to lose an animal no matter if you are ready for it or not and no matter how long they have been with you. She received a better life with you and Alayne than she would have otherwise. She is now in cat heaven with no pain and running around like a normal cat! Love you guys!! Laura

Oh, Steve and Alayne, it's so hard to part with our beloved companions. I know you'll miss Missy so much and how lucky she was that you two rescued her many years ago and provided her with love and care. I, also, have to be with my animals as they continue their journey. I feel certain Missy knew you were with her, Steve.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sure Missy had a wonderful life with you!

P.S. What happened with Cinder and her kittens?

So sorry for your loss of Missy, reading this post reminds us all of the beloved pets we have all lost.
As tears run from our our eyes, we will remember with love all those pets and special friends that we have lost.
Once again, thankyou for all the love and care you give these animals.
I do vounteer work with JRT's in Ontario, Canada and hear so many sad stories, if only all animals could be so loved and cared for.

I am so very sorry about Missy. This is so very sad. You gave her such great care, Steve & Alayne, & a wonderful home that she would not have had anywhere else. She will live on in your hearts.
With hugs of comfort,
ginger & Tobias

So sorry to hear about Missy. No matter how many times you go through the loss of a pet- it never gets any easier. I too, think they know that we are there- even if they seem like they don't. I'm sure your presence was a comfort to her.
On a happier note- looking forward to updates on the kittens. Loved the pictures (so tiny!). Keep up the amazing work. I end every night reading your blog. It makes me feel good to hear about the wonderful things you do for your animals. You are two truly amazing people!
Take care,
