Paige: We're all so sorry for the silence, but I'm sad to say that RBC wasn't the only loss we suffered recently. A couple weeks after RBC passed, our little girl cat RGC came down ill as well. Cancer, once again, struck our family, and she passed away only 5 weeks after our dear boy. She was 14 years old.

Monica: It's been a hard thing knowing we'd have to come here and say it, so soon after RBC. I think we thought if we'd put it off it wouldn't be true. Damn. Well, it's been awfully quiet at home. No pitter patter of little kitty feet. We've been wallowing ever since, and I have to tell you that's not a good thing. Thank you, Claire, for poking at us. It's good to know there are people out there who care.

Paige: Yeah, thank you. We'll try not to be so quiet from here on out. For the moment, though, here is a picture of RGC. She had the biggest eyes we'd ever seen on a cat. I hope this image gives you a small sample of what we felt whenever she looked our way. Take care for now!

Awww..sorry to hear it..When it rains it pours..doesn't it? Sorry for your families double loss.

Big big big big big hugs and kissies!!

wow, what beautiful blue eyes! you were all very blessed.

i sure wish i had poked you sooner ... i just felt all awkward and saddish about it and didn't quite know what to say. our elder cat is 16, and msg had one who reached 17 before i met him, so i understand the heartsoreness.

we're very glad you're back, though! let us know if there's anything we can do or say to help ...

your pal,

My deepest thoughts are with you all during this time. Loss is quite difficult and losing a beloved pet is no different than losing anyone else. I truly feel your loss with you my friends and sharing your grief.

We too are very sorry to hear about this loss. Cats are special creatures...we don't know what we'd do without Abby.

Will you be getting new kitties eventually? We got Abby from the local shelter and were just so sad that we couldn't adopt all of them.

awfully quiet again, lately! i hope it's 'cause you're busy with holiday stuff, not because you've got the holiday blues (or any kinda blues).

here's wishing you all a season of good tidings!

Oh, we're so very sorry! No, nothing wrong at all. We just recently took a much needed vacation! We'll tell the story shortly. Love and kisses to all from all of us!
