My Beloved Matt (the Catt), aka Mattmew, aka Meowthew, aka Mr. Buttercreme,

I found you sitting under my awning to shelter from the rain on my birthday over 4 years ago; I invited you inside and you walked in without hesitation. Your long blond fur was so matted that I had to get you shaved – you looked so adorable with your “lion” cut! We guessed you to be around 12 years old then with those geriatric eyes. You at first were a curmudgeon, but in recent years grew more affectionate. Late last year we started treating you for hyperthyroidism, then this year you became diabetic with failing kidneys. I will miss your ritual of jumping over the back of the loveseat, “yowling” all the while, to curl up next to the front window for your afternoon nap. I will also miss the way you draped your paws over my arm when you snuggled with me at night. Thank you for sharing your golden years with me – I wish we could have known each other longer …

    Dear Sandi, Matt was so very lucky to have found his way into your home & your loving, compassionate heart. He has such a sweet face & I can tell he was a very gentle kitty. Any animal in your care gets the very best care. I am so very sorry too hear of his passing & the loss you are feeling. May your huge heart heal from the loss of Matt knowing you took such wonderful care of him.

    Dear Sandi, Another one of your beloved four-footed companions has left this earth, and once more you have to deal with a loss. I am so very sad for you, but he was one lucky cat when you found him in the rain and took him in. He looks adorable, and it sounds like he became a very good buddy of yours. May we all be joined up with our loved ones when the time comes...

    Dear Sandi, You made such a huge difference in Matt's remaining years and he made a profound difference in your life.. Our beloved companion animals leave such a void in our lives when they pass, but also leave our hearts full of love and beautiful memories. Our 'kids" may be gone, but they will never ever be forgotten.......
