Violet 1998 - 2006


Our best friend is gone. Words can't describe the train wreck that is our emotions. I suppose we'll be back to cooking and posting soon but right now all we want to do is cry.

I want to cry too. I felt like I'd gotten to know Violet from all the posts and wonderful photos of her. One of my friends told me this a while ago and I totally believe it: a kitty's soul never leaves you. She'll always be with you guys.

I also wanted to offer my condolences. Last January we had to put our cat to sleep. I'd had her since I was 5-- more than 17 years. She was the best cat my family could ever have asked for and can never be replaced. (I cried with relative frequency over the next month or so.)
I still miss her a lot... but mostly I'm grateful that I was privileged enough to enjoy her company for such a long time. I confident that she lived a happy life and that she knew we truly loved (and will always love) her.
I trust that Violet was (similarly) aware of your love and thankful for your caring home.

I am so sorry to hear that Violet is gone but she is at peace now. She will always be with you and remember all the good times you shared with her. Our pets are special gifts in our lives, unfortunately, they dont get to stay with us, nearly long enough. I know the pain you are going through...sending you both big huggs. Happy journey to Cat Heaven Violet....

I've just been reading about your ordeal with Violet. One thing that's obvious is that she was very loved. Would that all animals knew that from humans.
