My heart is heavy today after being told that we have lost Toady. Toady was a kitty-client of mine and he managed in a very short time to work his way into my heart. He passed away from liver cancer at the age of 12.
My thoughts are with his owners as he was a very loved family member.

I can't stop the tears today.
God Speed Toady-boy.

hugs, Deb


  1. Deb,
    HUGS to you! I know how much you loved that little guy. I'm sitting here with tears running, it's heartbreaking.

  2. We remember your stories about handsome Toady and how much you loved him. We are sorry that he had to leave for the bridge.

  3. Nobody understands just how these cats get into our hearts, not just our own cats but all cats.
    Toady looked like a real character and my thoughts are with you Deb.
    LOts of love from afar

  4. I always loved when you cared for Toady and shared his picture with us. He was such a handsome boy. We dearly love our furbabies. Wishing Toady's family well. Hugs...

  5. I am so sorry to read of the loss of Toady. I hope Toady's family is cheered a little by their good memories of better times with him,and you are too.

  6. Deb this is such sad news. I know how fond of Toady your were. What a sweet guy! Sending you hugs.


  7. So sorry for the loss of this pretty kitty ! Prayers and thoughts go out to Toady's family and you !

  8. Such sad news. I'm sorry for his owner's loss and yours, dear friend. I know how much love you give to each and everyone of your kitties. XOXO

  9. I recently lost my sweet baby girl after a long hard fought battle with kidney disease. My hope is Toady & my Pie are playing & purring together at the bridge this very moment...

  10. So sad to hear about Toady. He was a handsome kitty. Hugs for all of you.

  11. Oh no! So sorry to hear about Toady. Such a cute kitty.

  12. This is so hard on you after just losing Cali. Sometimes the best thing to do is have a good cry as part of the grieving process. I think the death of our cats, and pets in general, is so hard to bare is that they love us unconditionally. are always willing to listen to our problems, are endlessly entertaining & always know when we need their companionship. I don't know any humans who meet all these needs. The only expectation cats have from us is a plate of foood and some attention - what a deal. While I know my cats appear to plot & scheme, I know they are innocent creatures who we feel are the least deserving of illness, pain and death.
    Cali & Toady lived better lives because you cared for them and I know you feel the same way. Take care and soon the tears will be replaced with wonderful memories.

  13. So sorry for the loss of Toady. What a very fine boy, with a wonderful name. A big loss to his family and to you.


  14. Oh, Toady was such a special kitty. I enjoyed so much seeing his photos and getting to know him through you, Deb. Sending my best regards to you and Toady's family.
    Many Hugs,

  15. I'm so sorry to read about Toady. My prayers go out for you and Toady's family. These little cats leave such big holes in our lives when they cross over. It sounds as if Toady lead a good full life and spread lots & lots of love in his time here.


  16. Oh, Deb! I'm so sorry! I'm crying too! Even though we only knew Toady through your blog, we fell in love with his sweet face, so delightfully marked and the warmth and love he radiated. When you wtote about him, we felt as if an old friend had come to visit.
    When one of my cats passes, we have a special candle that we light. We will light this candle for
    Toady. God speed, dear boy. We love you.

  17. He seemed such a lively and beautiful cat. Please pass our sympathy to his owners, and thank you for having shared him with us. x

  18. So sorry to hear about Toady. What a beautiful boy. He will clearly be missed by many.
