This is Eva

When I was at my lowest, nearly two years ago, she was the only thing in my life that gave me any relief from the pain. When I was considering suicide, she sat beside me and shouted at me. So often I would wake up and see her face, snuggled in between OktoberMest and I. So often when we were fighting the tension would broken by the sound of a burmese miaow. In so many ways, that kitten helped keep us together.

Tonight I held her broken head in my hands. I picked her up from the ground where the car must have hit her, and OktoberMest and I buried her with our hands in a field under a tree. She would have been two years of age tomorrow.

It's just a cat. Yeah. Right. I miss her so much. I am so upset. So upset. My poor, poor kitten.

no, she is a family member. Please honor her and yourself by grieving for her as such.

I'm so sorry LH and OM...hugs to you both!

I am so sorry for your loss. What a beautiful kitty.

Oh, I am so sorry. She isn't just a cat, she's your touchstone. And she's a beauty. Perhaps she will be able to watch over you from afar. ((peace))

I am so sorry. I'm in tears just reading your post. She is not just a cat she was a member of your family. Our family dog died 9 years ago and to this day we still cry when we think of him.

I am so sorry. She was beautiful inside and out.

I'm so very very sorry. I love my fur babies with the same intensity as I love my children & grand children.

GabyBaby posted 6/18/2013 16:49 PM

She's a beautiful girl. As one fur-parent to another, there is no such thing as "she's just a cat".
Our pets are family.

My heart goes out to you and your family.

((( LH and family )))

Our cat was our first pet together. It was LH's first cat to add to our little family. I had a damn good try and blowing that family unit up; but Eva helped LH everyday at the start.

I know the bond we had was great also. When LH was in the US at the start of this year, Eva and I really bonded. She took care of me and I of her; and we could both Facetime LH together - and usually did.

I loved her so very much. I always will. She is irreplaceable. Today is a very sad day here, in a quiet village; made all the more quiet by the lack of Eva's tinking bell and her very noisy and demanding burmese MIAOW.

RIP Eva. Chase all the bunnies, birds and slow worms you want. We'll love you forever. 2 years was too short. Life is so damn unfair.

Brokenhearted and hoping this brings LH and I closer still.

They are our furbabies that's why it hurts to lose them . They provide us with unconditional love.

I'm sorry for the loss of your kitty. Too young to be taken.

I'm so sorry for your loss...I understand the huge void of lossing a beloved pet can leave.

Please know we're thinking of you and your wife and sending you loving thoughts.

It's just a cat.

She was more than that. Many pets are just pets, but a few become something special. I adopted my cat Rosemary when I was 5. I put out a bowl of milk for her, and she decided that day that she had found her home. She snuggled with me frequently at night throughout my childhood. She was killed by a car when I was 21, almost 22 and away at college. That was 22 years ago and I still miss her sometimes.

Sorry for your loss, LH and OM. Many of us here can relate.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

I, too, am so sorry for your loss. Just a few weeks ago my dog died. For well over 7 years I had told her and her alone EVERYTHING.

I know how they can mean the world to you. I am sooooo thrilled that you two have each other for your grieving.

I'm so very sorry.

I am so sorry, I feel your pain! Honestly, if it was not for my cat I question how well I would have survived. I remember laying in bed crying while my cat was purring like crazy and frantically butting her head against mine. When I finally got the nerve to leave my bastard ex she was all I took, and all I had.

So sorry for your loss...I agree though, not "just a cat" Pets for some of us are much more than "just" no matter what animal it is.

I understand the pain of losing a dear family member. I am so sorry for your loss.

I also understand the healing power of a pet. My cats and dog have given me so much love, unconditional love. They helped me when I could barely help myself during the dark days after DDay and during our separation.
