Thank You For Your Words Of Comfort




Tutu : That's right, Daddy. Break up the chicken jerky into smaller pieces so Whisky can eat it easily
Daddy : Is this size okay?
Tutu : Yup, looks good! Now, please give it to Whisky

During Whisky's final weeks, Tutu was always close by, watching over her big sisfur. It warmed my heart to see that. Today marks exactly a week since Whisky and Pok flew to the Bridge.

Whisky's final resting place
We miss our beautiful Princess but are grateful to have had so many wonderful years together and the opportunity to create lasting memories of our time together. I can't say that the cats have shown outwardly signs of missing their woofie sisfur. However, I think they do sense the sadness at home and responded to that by comforting me in their own way.

We miss Pok's wheeking when it's time for treats. He was always so enthusiastic about his food and treats. We can just picture him wheeking happily at the sight of the "all-you-can-eat" treat buffet at the Rainbow Bridge!  :)

We would like to thank everyone who came and left kind words of comfort on our double loss of Whisky and Pok last week. Words can never describe how much your support meant to us during this very difficult time. THANK YOU.

And Thank You Ann, for the beautiful graphics of Whisky and Pok.

Animals always know when their humans need them most. Even the most stand offish ones.

Awwww angel Whisky! :-(

Look at your beautiful sweet darling face. Aww those lovely eyes! We hope you are having a wonderful time with angel Pok over at the Bridge. Take care

How precious that little rascal Tutu was so close before Whisky died.

Pets can be very intuitive of their human's moods. Mine always know when I'm sad or upset.

Brian said...

All our hugs and love. The tears are rolling again here too.

Tamago said...

Tutu is so sweet to stay with Whisky. She was taking care of her sisfur and that must have made Whisky feel very safe and peaceful. I'm sure Pok is enjoying the buffet at Rainbow Bridge and running around with Curly.

I hope your heart filled with sadness will some day be filled with happy memories. Sending warm thoughts and hugs to all of you.

Seeing TuTu love and concern for Whisky was so endearing. It is so hard to let go, of this I speak from heartfelt experience. I noticed the photo you have by Whisky's memorial which talks about finding you in the light. I am a firm believer of that with Abby. I have always (ALWAYS) told her I will find her in the light. For myself when the sun is beginning to fade it always finds me the saddest as that is when the light fades to dust and then to darkness. It is also a time of great beauty with the light playing against the shadows. I always believe Abby is there somewhere just beyond what the human eye can see. I know you miss beloved Whisky so very much and dear Pok too. Holding you close to my heart. ♥♥♥

RedSetter said...

What beautiful caring photos. It is lovely to see how gentle and loving animals can be. Whisky was the most darling looking woofie and how sad to lose both on the same day. Holding you warmly in my heart and hoping your pain will lessen with time and that the happy memories with become the stronger emotions.

Such a lovely tribute to sweet Whisky and Pok. And to see Tutu's compassion and sensitivity in Whisky's final days is just beautiful. We send love, hugs, purrs and prayers to you all, dear ones.

haopee said...

Oh my gosh!!! I'm so sorry. I didn't know. We're really sorry we weren't there to send you some of our comforting words.

I hope mom and dad are recovering. Dear Tutu, please be strong for your family.

haopee said...

I just read the part about Pok leaving you guys. Maybe Pok decided to take a hitch on Whisky's back because it was so soft.

May they both have lots of fun across the bridge.

Katie Isabella said...

I love how Tutu is there with her sisfur and always wanting to be near and a comfort.

I believe we will see our babies again and not a day goes by that I don't think of Admiral with love and eyes that start to fill. They are an integral part of us always and forever.

Love you.
