My sweet little Geets

March 23, 1996 to August 19 2015. He was almost 19 1/2 years. He went peacefully today unlike Razzle in 2012. Had the vet come to me. So glad i did or Geet's would of freaked and i would have a panic attack. Geets was friendly and came out to see who it was. I was a little upset because his veins collasped from his disease that the vet had to poke a few times for a vein and it hurt him. It wasn't her fault. She wanted to get into a vein instead of muscle as the sedative would work faster. It did work fast. I cried before he was gone but i stayed with him till the end.

I buried him at a friend's house with his favorite teddy bear. As i was bringing him to the hole the bag ripped. Thank god i had the teddy bear over him. Then on the way home i just cried and still am. I had to get rid of his bowls, cat food, food i was force feeding, etc.

He was only 8.2 lbs but he was just bones and i knew it was just going to get worse.

I got him when he was 5 weeks old. I'll do a memorial of him when i can stop crying. It took me a year to do Razzle's memorial cause i just couldn't do it before then. I try to remember he's not suffering any more but it's so hard. All those years.

I asked him to say hello to Razzle at Rainbow Bridge and how much i missed him and that i will met them both when i die.

Your favorite chair is vacant now
No eager purrs to greet me
No softly padded paws to run
Ecstatically to meet me
No coaxing rubs, no plaintive cry
Will say it's time for feeding
I've put away you bowls, and all
the things you won't be needing
But i will miss you little friend

For i could never measure
The happiness you brought me
The comfort and the pleasure
And since God put you here to share
In earthly joy and sorrow
I'm sure there'll be a place for you
In Heaven's bright tomorrow

By Alice Chase


Goodbye

With a heavy heart and a tear in my eye
After all these years i must say goodbye
Please understand i've done all i could
It there was anything i could do, you know i would

I'm sitting right here gently rubbing your ears
While i talk to you softly trying to hold back the tears
The memories you gave me I'll never forget
Especially the ones of the day we met

One last hug and one last kiss
You have no idea how much you'll be missed
To look into your eyes this one last time
You tell me it's ok you know it's you time

Close your eyes now and go to sleep
I'll pray to the Angels your soul they will keep
Go in peace now my good little friend
I'll stay right here with you until the end

So with a heavy heart and tears in my eyes
Just for now my friend i must say goodbye.

Your tail is forever wrapped around my heart and your bright eyes shine forever in my mind. Everytime i think of you your right here in my heart. Love you, love you always. You left paw prints on my heart.

You mommy

Kathy,
I am so sorry for your loss and know just how empty everything seems right now. I sit here crying for Geets, for you, for Razzle, for Mocha, and for me. Nothing can ever replace our beloved babies in our hearts, their memories will forever be imprinted in our minds.
Geets was well loved and he will be waiting for you at the Bridge, ready to charge amd leap into your arms when it is time. In the meantime, I know he will try to visit you in his spirit form, with Razzle by his side.

Oh God I'm so sorry. That second poem really reduced me to a teary mess and brought me back to saying goodbye to my Sabrina a few months ago. Believe me, I know your heartache and wish I knew of words I could write to lessen it. I know you will be reunited with your babies one day. Take care of yourself in this difficult time. Geets would want that.

Oh razzle. I just walked and cried each sentence with you.
I am so sorry for the passing of Geets.
We all second guess letting them go but in your heart you know and it is the greatest gift to let them stop suffering. Take comfort as much much as you can from the huge volume of happy memories Geets has left you with. He has been with you a long time and that's a big hole in your life to fill. I would guess it's hard to remember time before he was there. Sending hugs to you

Much sympathy, it's so hard. We hurt so they can stop hurting.
