We Miss You Kitty :(

Our sweet little guinea pig died a week ago. We don't know what killed him...he just quit eating and started losing weight. It all happened so quickly. One day he was well and active, then suddenly he was gone. We miss him so much. I can't believe how painful it has been for me. I knew the kids would take it hard, but I didn't anticipate it hurting so much. I guess it has been a long time since I lost a little pet, at least one that was such a significant part of our family. It makes me treasure the pets we have left so much more. We miss you Kitty!

I miss the way he would squeak, jump up, and spin in a circle when he was excited. I miss him running to his cage door and trying to eat out of his food container when I was feeding him. I miss seeing my kids sitting around holding him. I even miss him squeaking at me every time I walk into the playroom. It's amazing how something so little can become such a big part of a family. I hope we gave Kitty as much happiness as he brought to us...I only wish our time with him could have been longer :(.

Oh, Sherri. I'm so sorry for you and your family. It's so hard to lose a pet. They become, so easily, such a special part of our lives, don't they? Big cyber hugs to you all. :(

Remember the fun times and cry. It feels good to let it out. I love the pictures and what wonderful memories you have!

Oh Sherri, I am so sorry for the loss of your pet. We lost Lilac, our kitty, last year and it was a very sad time for us, so I know how hard it must be for you and your family. I am sending hugs your way.

What kills me is that both of our families lost sweet fur babies at the same time. :( I am so sorry Sherri and kids. I know the ache! I know how excited you all were to get kitty! How you bounded out of bed that morning to surprise the children. *sigh* I will miss kitty too. :(
