It was time

With a very heavy heart, we said "good-bye" to our Mr. Ed today. He was in kidney failure and it was time.

They will meet again someday as will we.

Annie has a big role in Lily's life to fill now. I know she will do her best.

I'll be back soon. Just need some time. We loved him so much.
Hugs, Deb

  3. This is never easy, no matter how many times the 'goodby' must be faced in a lifetime of loving cats. You will be looking over your shoulder toward Mr. Ed's favorite spots for some time to come. You gave him a great home!

  4. It is hard to hear that someone as special as the dapper Mr. Ed is gone. I am glad he got to see one more Christmas tree up close to enjoy the lights before he had to leave. And yes, Lily and he will be united again someday.

    You certainly gave him wonderful last years in his life. I know that he must have been so grateful... as am I. Blessings upon you and your family as you grieve. My thoughts will be with you all.

    Much Love,
    ❤ ❤ ❤

  24. So very sorry for you, your family, and the other creatures that you love and care for. What a deep grief it is to lose such a special friend. My friend had to say good-bye to her special Siamese cat today too - I have been giving Lady sub q fluids and helping her and became very attached so there have been many tears at our house today too. Really thinking of you tonight and sending you prayers for comfort. (Tutti Buttery)

  38. We loved him, too. And we love that you took in this dear old man and gave him the very best years of his life, with you all and his dear Miss Lily. There is an old phrase - All the sweetness lies at the bottom of the cup - that is so true of our beloved kitties, (and pups) they do get sweeter and sweeter as the years go on. Sending warmest thoughts and comforting purrs.

  67. Ed's passing is a crushing blow to all of us who loved him. We cannot imagine what you are going through.
    We could not comment when we first
    read of his passing. He was that
    important to us. He could always
    brighten our dark days and that was
    his gift. The world is a little darker, a
    little colder without Ed in it. Our
    prayers are with you. Our eternal
    love is with Ed.
    We are sad beyond words.

  68. Much love to you. We all came to love the gentleman, Mr. Ed through you. We will all miss him. Hugs to you and yours and a little extra for Lily.
