You always hear about those cats that live to be 18 or 20. I always thought that would be you. We had a glorious almost 10 years together, but you were taken from me much too soon. Words cannot express what you mean to me, Gretchen. You were a devoted companion, my "chief morale officer" and best friend. I'll never forget the day we met at the cat rescue. You jumped in my lap, starting purring and looked at me with your beautiful eyes. I knew then that we would be friends for life. I feel so much love for you, my little girl. I know that you are resting in heaven with the angels now and you'll forever be in my heart. Much love, Mommy.|
12/19/2014- Hello my little angel, I've been missing you. It's been one week now since you crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. It has been tough, but the condolences I've received from others who have lost their furbabies have really helped! You certainly are in good company with lots of cat and dog friends across the bridge. You will always be in my mind and heart. I couldn't have asked for a better friend and I am honored to have been part of your life.
12/24/2014- Merry Christmas- little lady! I know how you loved sitting under the Christmas tree, so I made sure to have one out for you today next to your memorial. Enjoy along with the catnip mouse and blankie!
1/4/2015- Happy New Year! Things just aren't the same without you- you are very missed. I left you a brand new scratching post by your memorial. I know how much you loved those!
2/13/2015- Happy Valentine's Day, my little lady. I still miss you so much and think of you every day. It's just not the same without you. You are forever in my heart, and I will never forget you.
3/20/2015- Missing you more and more each day. I love you so much, my little girl. I left you some Easter goodies.
4/23/2015- This month would have been 10 years together for us- this is also the month we'll celebrate your birthday!! It is not getting any easier without you. Mommy misses you so much. I hope you are happy in heaven.
6/14/2015- Happy Summer! I would give anything to have you back here with me, little lady. You will never be forgotten.
7/6/2015- We missed you this 4th of July. You are on my mind and make me smile everyday.
12/1/2015- I can't believe it has been almost a year. I feel awful that I did not visit for Halloween and Thanksgiving, but you know that you were always on my mind. I was just thinking about you today as I looked at our Christmas tree. You used to love it so! Rest in heaven, my sweetheart.
12/12/2015- It's been one year today since you left me and the pain feels like yesterday. What an impact you made on my life. I know that someday we will meet again and until then I will carry you in my heart, my dear friend.
12/31/2015- Happy New Year, my grey princess. Thinking of you.
2/21/2016- Missing you at Valentine's day. Thinking about getting a kitten. What do you think? I could never replace you, but it sure might be a lot of fun!
4/1/2016- Easter was last weekend. Missed you as usual. We are thinking of adopting another cat- a chartreux just like you. He is 6 years old. I know you'll be watching us from above.
8/24/2016- Hello, my dear, dear friend. I still think of you every day. As you know, Eros, our new Chartreux, joined the family back in April. We love him very much, he's a sweet little boy and loves to give kisses. I tell him about you often. He doesn't work much in the office like you used to do as he always wants to sit on my keyboard! Miss you.
12/11/2016- I can't believe it has been two years since you crossed the Rainbow bridge. I love you so much and still think of you each and every day. Merry Christmas!
9/10/2017- Sometime has passed since I've updated your page, but I still think of you daily. Eros was really sick with a urinary blockage earlier in the month, but he's back to normal now. Bella looks at your picture often and kisses you. We all miss you so much, but know you are watching over us from kitty heaven. I love you, my angelcat from France. =)
11/21/2017- Getting ready for Thanksgiving- and I am so thankful and honored to have had you as part of my life. Miss you everyday!
3/27/2020- I haven't written in awhile, but not a day goes by that I don't think of you. Eros had major surgery back in July but he recovered and is just perfect now. Crazy times in the world now, we are all staying home to stay safe. I left you some Easter goodies.
12/12/2020- my beautiful angel, I love you so much and still think of you often and smile. Merry Christmas.
12/12/2021- my sweet girl, the years may have passed, but you are not forgotten. I am thinking of you daily and know someday we will meet again. And by the way, Eros has officially become the office cat- it was just a matter of time!
