I'm so sorry Karlin. You truly did give Maisie what was probably the best year of her life. As heart wrenching as it is to stay with them until they go, I have never regretted it. I think it's our duty as their loving human friend to be with them right up to the very end. You did such a kind thing for her.
Thoughts of you in this difficult time. God bless you for giving so many pets a fine life!
So sorry to hear about Maisie. Know that you did the right thing and she had the best year of her life with you!!
Hugs & Kisses Karlin
Tears here too :cry:
So sorry Karlin that you had to let Maisie have her wings - it was very brave of you to let her go.
She had a wonderful year with you, and was obviously an amazing character who will be sadly missed.
She had a beautiful face too.
Hugs for you all.
Donâ€™t cry for me Iâ€™m doing fine,
Iâ€™m in heaven now with wings that shine,
It makes me sad to see you cry,
but Iâ€™ve big fields and flowers up here in the sky,
God gave me all I could ever dream,
Itâ€™s a place more beautiful than you have ever seen,
While there on earth I saw your smile,
bringing me peace if just for a while.
Now as I live in eternal bliss,
please just know I send you a kiss,
I loved the time you devoted to me,
but want one last thing, for you to smile for me.
Boy oh boy Karlin I know you must be hurting...My thoughts are so with you at this time.....I really hope that your move will be orderly and that soon things will settle... :cry: God Bless.
I am so sorry, you were so kind and loving to Maisie.
You said"As humans the great gift we can give these small friends is to let them depart in gentleness, with dignity, rather than require them to endure in pain."
It is always such a hard decision to make and one we don't take easy. That said, you have given her freedom of pain.
Your memories will be good ones. And the stories that you will tell others will encourage them to embrace the dogs and cats that need the love.
I just now read this post. I am sooo sorry about Maisie. I stayed with my dog when it was time to let him go. The last thing he knew was my smell and being in my arms. This gave me great comfort. It was so peaceful and Maisie knows the same thing, thanks to you. My thoughts are with you at this time.
I just read this post now, I'm so sorry to hear about Maise. My cat Maya was given her wings while I held her close. It was so hard, but I wouldn't of had it any other way. At least you know while Maisie was with you she had a great life, you saved her from her initial injury and brought her into a loving, caring home.
Thanks all; it's always hard to say goodby. I set up a little 'bequest' for her for an annual donation to a friend's cat rescue, to help FIV cats in particular. She was a little sweetie.
Karlin, my thoughts are with you. I have lost several cats over the years & it is completely heartbreaking. At least that little furry angel had a year where she was pampered and loved which is more than she'd have had if you hadn't found her.
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
(Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!
