Attila, 1993-2007

Thank you all for your kind comments about our Attila. I'm very sad to tell you that he passed away during the night. I was away all evening, taking Michelle and her friend to a rock concert. Jason noticed that Attila's breathing was labored, but he didn't seem to be all that sick. J. is the first one up at our house, and when he went to let the animals out, he found Attila. I'm at work right now so I must keep this short, I'm just in shock because I didn't expect the kitty to leave us so quickly. Right after I introduced him on the blog. I guess he must have been ready to go. We're all going to miss him, and I especially feel for Jason, because they had a special bond. Of all of us, Jason was the only one whom Attila would climb on and bestow "kitty kisses".

I am so sorry about Attila. I am sure he was happy for his time with you though- he looked very well loved.
I'm so sorry for your family's loss.
Oh Sharon, I am so sorry.

I always think of this when someone dear loses a pet

"Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.... "
I'm sad for you and your fam. I wonder if there's a blogosphere version of a "sympathy" card?
I'm so sorry. It's so hard to lose a beloved pet.
I'm so sorry for your loss! It's awfully hard to get through this time, and I'll be thinking of you.
Sharon, I am very sorry to read of your loss. It hurts my heart to know that you and your family have lost a special family member. My deepest sympathies to you and your family right now.
So sorry you lost your cat.
So very sad with you- I lost my
Sophie last month and had her just a little less than you had Attilla-I know your sad.
I'm so sorry about Attila. I know he'll be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge. ((((hugs)))) for you and your family, you are in my thoughts. Take care.
