Farewell, Our Pearl

drawing from here

Friends,
I am sorry to report that our sweet cat, Pearl has lost a brief battle with a fast moving cancer. She was a swell kitty and a sweet friend. In her memory, I am linking here to the story of how we met.
We will miss her deeply.
Don't forget to hug your people - the fur ones and the other ones.
Lisa

  1. Bob, Pearl is hanging out with some AWESOME cat dudes in heaven!

    I hope she runs into Sam who was my cat when I was your age. He liked to lie on his back and watch everyone in the room. with all paws pointed skyward he could spin around on the wooden floor so he didn't miss anything.

  2. Bob & Family, so damn sorry for your loss. Ishkabibble awaits Pearl. So does Tucker, the light of my life. Though a dog, she bowed to the presence and elegance of The Cat.

  6. Pearl was a beautiful person (sic) who is probably enjoying a nice Stella bath in heaven. Thank you for sharing your life with us! I look forward to the updates every morning, I hope your readers will lift your spirits as you grieve the loss of your kitty. It may not compare to the way your lift our spirits everday, but it's a good start!
    Extra kitty snacks for my boys tonight in honor of Pearl.

  8. The loss of a beloved pet is a true loss. Grief is involved and yet- it is a part of life and as such, is some sort of preparation for children as they learn that loss is hard and yet, we go on.
    My own Pearl (and that really is her name) is a very, very old boxer dog and I hug her every day, knowing that her time with us is getting shorter. Thanks for the reminder.

  13. Hugs to all of you. My kitty babies will eat some tuna tonight in memory of your Pearl. My real babies will throw the tuna I try to feed them on the floor and then the kitties will get twice as much. Story of my life ..
    Really, I am sorry for your loss and am sending love and support.

    Pearl, please be on the lookout for Betty, Mary, Bub, Lucille and Dr. Forbes Martin. Also Roger Martin, a very nice blonde lab. They're all in heaven and I miss them all except for Dr. Forbes, whom I didn't know. But, I know he was very nice, just like you.

    It's so hard to lose a beloved pet family member. But, I thank God that I knew them all.

    Love,

    Miss Ilene

  19. We lost our beloved cat Wiggum this past July. I LOVED that cat. He got sick and died almost over night at age 13. I still find myself missing him. It is amazing how much we can love animals isn't it? I am sorry for your loss.

  20. Well. I'm certainly not taking this very well, considering I never met Pearl and am still all tears right now. The furry creatures in our lives never lose their innocence and unconditional loyalty. It's why the loss feels so profound--we know we are losing a soul so full of grace and love.
    I wish I had a way to comfort with you. I'm sending all of you love.

  21. I'm so sorry. Poor Bob, how's he taking this?

  22. Oh, my sympathy and love to your family. and for you to lose her so quickly likely makes things even harder to bear. We said goodbye to our cat, Tru, a few months ago, and my daughter handled it well -- sad but brave throughout. The book "Cat Heaven" comforted both of us; you guys might like it. I resisted because of the "heaven" part of the title, but then succumbed and am glad I did. Hugs to all the Rosenbergs.
