Thank you and Happy Mother's Day

I want to thank everyone for your kind and thoughtful comments and emails on Audrey's passing.
Believe me, your words were very comforting.
It has been a very hard nine months; a road to hell, really. After fighting so hard to improve her health it was evident in the last few weeks that Audrey had a brain tumor. I also knew that the hard decision to let her go was out of my hands. With the help of our wonderful vet she went home very peacefully.

Audrey has been laid to rest here on my grandmother's land. I feel fortunate to be able to keep her close.

Just like myself, Annie needs some time to adjust. She is very quiet and needy right now but I believe in my heart that she knows Audrey left us. She stayed very close to her on her last day. Annie is a very sensitive cat and has been through the loss of five cats and a dog in the last six years. We will be each other's rock.

I want to wish all the wonderful MOM'S a Happy Mother's Day tomorrow.
I will be surrounded by my three children, their spouses and my five grandittles. Oh, and of course, Cooper my grand-kitty.

Enjoy your day MOMS. xo

  1. I have been away from email for awhile and just read this post about Audrey. I am so, so sorry. Our kitty Chester died several weeks ago. They are so close to our hearts and such a huge part of our lives. Here's wishing you a wonderful Mother's Day with your family~

  2. I am so sorry to hear about Audrey's passing. Losing a pet is hard because they really do become a part of our family. My sympathy to you.

  4. Deb, I'm so sorry that you lost your precious Audrey. I know how much you love her and I remember all the posts that you wrote about her and Annie. The world is a much better place because of great cat moms like you.

  5. Thank you for sharing the story of Audrey's recent weeks. It helps to know that her last days and passing were as peace-filled as possible.

    My goodness, how much I have loved her through meeting her in your blog. She was so dear to my heart. I started reading your blog just 3 months after Annie and her three newborn kittens came to your home. I was so interested I had to go back and read the story of how they came to you and I have been reading Annie, Audrey, and occasionally Bree/Ruby's story ever since.

    I am holding you and "nurse" mom Annie up to Our Father for peace.

    Love,
    Lily

  6. Happy Mother's Day to you Deb. Hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow with all your family. I adore that picture of you and Audrey. Please hug Annie for me.

  7. My dear old-man cat passed the same day as Audrey, and your loss hit me almost as hard as my own. Last year I lost 3 senior pets to cancer--it's a horrible, horrible thing. But you blessed Audrey with the best life a cat could want, and she blessed you right back. CS Lewis said, "Why love if losing hurts so much?.... the pain now is part of the happiness then. That's the deal." Not many of us would choose to have never loved our pets even though it is so painful when they go. Your sweet girl gave lots of joy to lots of people. It was our privilege to "know" her, and she will stay in our hearts as well as in yours. You & Annie be strong for each other this Mother's Day.

  10. Happy Mothers Day Deb. You must all miss that wee minx. She bought such joy to everyone, and it is sad that she had such a short life, but we enjoyed every post you made about her. Her and momma Annie were lucky to have found such a special home at your house.

  15. We all say goodbye and we've all said goodbye before to beloved feline and canine friends, but I don't think that makes it the slightest bit easier. I know Annie is grieving as you are and my wish for you is that every day you will heal a wee bit more until the sad parts of this time are distant memories and the joyfulness of "our" Audacious Audrey (for you shared her life and personality so well that we all feel we have a little bit of her), that this joy, personality, attitude is right on top of the memory pile and will bring you smiles again. Thank you, Deb, for sharing her with us and for letting her be part of our cyber lives, too. Biggest hugs to you and Sweet Annie.

  16. I was unaware that Audrey had passed and am so sorry to hear it. It is so difficult to lose such an integral part of your life... but together you and Annie will help each other through it... and in time there will remain only loving memories. Our Rose also died of a brain tumor, but she was 23 and had lived a good long life. Audrey was loved and cherished and it's obvious that she knew it. Sending you healing thoughts.

  17. My heart hurts for you Deb. I loved Audrey too through your wonderful photos and postings. Her antics always brought laughter. So thankful you have her home with you along with your other beloved pets. Hugs to you.

  18. It is comforting to know Audrey is at rest beside her beloved family members on the land of those who have gone before. Her little bit of history joins the greater history of her adopted family to whom she brought such joy.
    Our special candle has just been lit in her memory and honour. We’ll never forget our Audrey, cat of a thousand faces. Love always.

  19. I just saw this, I am so sorry and sad for you. Audrey was such a character! I will miss reading about her antics. What a good life she had, thanks to you and your family. (((hugs)))

  20. I was heartbroken to learn of Audrey’s passing. She was such a special girl and had personality plus. I enjoyed reading about her and seeing her pictures. What a beautiful girl. Thank you for sharing her with us. When I found a little gray kitten in a parking lot last year, my first thought was a little Audrey! I had just lost my 19 year old cat and felt this little kitten was sent by God! The fact she reminded me of your Audrey made her all the more special. God bless you dear Deb and your sweet Annie.

  22. Oh Deb I am so sorry for your loss. She will live forever in your heart although I know you would prefer her by your side. When you look at the night sky, know that Audrey is one of the twinkling stars shining down. I am sending you many good thoughts.

  23. Again, I am heartbroken for you. The MRI we did on Mae was for that very reason...to rule out a brain tumor....you loved her with all your heart and cared for her well...it's all we can ask for isn't it? I know it will take time...she is carried forever in your heart....hugs and blessings Deb.

  25. We are the caretakers for those kitties that need us. Audrey was so loved and she knew it too. I hope you still managed to have some smiles on Mother's Day. Take care,

  26. I have been reading your blog for more than one loss, Deb, and each one makes me cry as I know how much you love all your little critters, as I do. Take comfort in the fact that you gave Audrey the best possible life, as you did for all your sweet furbabies. That's all we can do. xo

  29. I am so sorry to read about Audacious Audrey's passing. She was unique and definitely a character and so beloved. Her well-being was ever safe with you. No better pet parent could she have had. The rainbow bridge glows a little brighter with your Audrey and we are much sadder for her passing.
