This morning we found Carlotta, our sweet outdoor cat and the mother of our kittens, dead. I don’t like to go into details. We know that a moment of abstraction had lead to what happened and it didn’t happen on purpose. We are very, very sad.

Good-bye, my sweet friend. You’ll be in our heart forever.

I have just discovered your blog today and am your newest follower.

However, on the sad note... I share your pain and anguish, as I shed tears right along with you for your loss.

I know what it means to love a kitty and have it snuggle into your heart with those soft purrs of content and love nudges and blinky eye kisses they give only to their humans. I will say a prayer for her.

Dear Julia

Pets are what I call the furry, family members, we love them so much don't we.
Look at her precious white paws.

Liebe Julia,
Oh mein Gott, was ist denn bloß passiert???!!! Es zerreist einem wirklich das Herz. Wir müssen unseren Nicki durch eine Krankheit viel zu früh verlieren und Ihr Eure süße Carlotta durch irgendwelche schlimmen Umstände. Sie war doch sicher auch noch nicht alt.
Ja, ich bin auch traurig mit Dir und denke an Dich.
Trösten tut das nicht, aber man ist nicht allein mit seinen Gefühlen...
Ganz traurige und liebe Grüße,

Martina said...

Oje, das lese ich ja jetzt erst!!!! Wie schrecklich! Oh, Julia, das tut mir wirklich sehr leid. Ich kann sehr gut nachfühlen, wie schlimm das ist, wenn man ein geliebtes Tierchen verliert.
Drücke Dich ganz feste!

It is so disheartening when we loos one of our fur babies! She is not really gone she is in another realm watching out for you and yours!
Blessed be

Oh Julia, I'm oh so sorry. As fate would have it we lost our cat Moses Dec. 9th 2012. I found him outside in the bushes and I still can't believe he's gone.

He found us 5 years earlier, an old tomcat, beat up, sick and on his last leg. He'd been coming up for food but we scooped him up when he looked so ill and took him to the vet.

So he had 5 years of a warm house and all the food he wanted. My heart breaks for you,xooxo-cindy
