T-Bone My Angel

Late last night our beloved cat T-Bone joined the ranks of angels in heaven after a brief illness. We are anguished beyond measure, blind with tears and our hearts are aching. We had 11 wonderful years with this little guy whom we adopted from the Animal Umbrella shelter at Christmas in 1996.

The link on T-Bone's name will bring you to lots of amusement with T-Bone & Badcat, but I'm not sure I blogged the invitation that T-Bone (nee T. Bone Magno) received from the Republicans inviting him to become a Platinum member. I can assure you that like his father, T-Bone was a radical lefty.

Godspeed T-Bone the Kitty, we are wandering the house with Badcat too.

Hi. Thanks for the Tilda-inspired dinner compliments and Congrats ona great, stylin' website. More importantly as a fellow cat lover and parent (and frequent poster of kitty fotos on blog), my sincere sympathies for your loss. Best, Drake

I am beyond sorry for your loss. Our sweet, furry friends have such BIG souls and their loss is indeed profound and leaves such a deep sadness...because of the imprint that they leave on our hearts.

I try to explain to people just how "healing" animals are. They never judge, they love unconditionally and just being near them reduces stress by at least 90%.

Please know that me, Madeline and Buster are sending you, Tommy and BadCat so much love.

I only wish I could take the hurt away. I love you so much.

I'm so, so sorry to hear about your loss. More in e-mail. Just know I am sending a hug, healing thoughts and much affection.

Oh no - I'm so sorry for your loss. I know what it's like to lose a cat. You and your husband and Badcat are in my thoughts.

Scott Monty said...

That's too bad. The Republicans need more cool cats.

On a more serious note, Lori, you have my deepest sympathy. I know how hard it is to lose a pet that is like a family member. Thank you for sharing this with us and allowing us to be there for you.

Lori -
Loosing a member of your family is a hurt that is not easy to heal. Hugs from me and woofs from Max. So very sorry to hear about T-Bone.

Lori - so very sorry for the loss of T-Bone. I can relate to 11 years with our furry angels not being long enough.

XO, Jennifer

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your pet. I am a first time pet owner and can now understand how much it must hurt to lose a pet-member of the family.

Mini and I are thinking of you.
