Niksa's Ashes
by: Cathy Ontario, Canada

Dear Michelle:

My condolences on the loss of your precious Niksa. I understand how you are feeling.

I did lose my 16 year old Tiger 16 years ago and she was 16. I had her as a kitten.

I put two cats to sleep this year. Very hard decision to make when you love them so much.

Muffin my 15 year old on June 23, 2010.

Dutchess my 20 year old on October 13, 2010.

Fortunately I still have one more cat Bart who is 20 years old and not in the greatest health. I hope I have him for a while longer.

I had them both cremated (I don't like cremation) and I was surprised how I felt. I have gone to their urn and picked it up and talked to them. I sort of feel they are still with me "sort of". You might know what I mean.

Their ashes are in a cedar urn that is closed for eternity. I will at some point put them on our fireplace mantle but for now they are both in the blue boxes we got them in. I also got their paws done. They are cute. I will frame them.

You never really get over this loss in your life but you learn how to go on and live with it.

I cry and let it all out. Not as much as I should. I can't look at their pictures without losing it.

I will pray that it will become easier as the time goes on. Love never dies.

I am going to scrapbook pictures, poems and their fur ( I kept some)for my kitties. A memorial and something I can look back on and enjoy. Seeing their beautiful faces. I cannot do it right now but in the future. I have a daughter that loves pictures and she is going to help me.

I will always love my precious furry babies and miss them. No one can take that away from you and all your memories.

Take care of yourself and God bless you.

I totally agree with Theresa. You will never feel the same without your boy. I lost my boy last September and there's not a day that I do not think about him and still cry. I, like you, do not understand this grief. It just never goes away. I think that part of it is that our precious pets depend on us for everything and we are everything in their eyes.

Keep your chin up and like my boy he will visit you in some way to let you know that he is okay.


You did the right thing for Niksa

Dear Michelle,

I have read your diary about your beautiful boy and I empathise and sympathise with what you are suffering right now.

I too had to make that painful decision for my Shimma last year and I have only just come to terms with the fact of what I did was the best decision I could have made for my lovely girl.

Time does heal but trust me it never mends,

God bless...
