Dear Forum Friends,

Five years ago this week I met a wonderful friend here.  Her name is Gabby and she lives in England.  I am in the U.S.  Gabby came to the forum after losing her beloved kitty, Little Man.  She has since had two other losses; most recently her elderly kitty and Little Man's mama, Pandora, who went to the Bridge after a long and valiant fight against cancer.  Pandora left behind many kitties at Gabby's house, one of them her sister, Mitzi.

Little Man's 5 year marker was on Tuesday.  Gabby had posted that she didn't think Mitzi would be with her much longer as she was showing signs of weakness and old age was taking its toll.  Mitzi had a veterinary emergency today. Gabby was ill and unable to take her to the family vet so her husband took Mitzi in for treatment.  Gabby received a phone call advising her that it was Mitzi's time to go.  She had to give consent over the phone and couldn't be with her little old lady at the end.  Gabby's heart is broken. She has always been with her furs when it was time to help them on their journeys and she feels like she let Mitzi down. :'( 

Please say a prayer for Gabby and Mitzi.  For Gabby's healing, and for Mitzi's journey to be peaceful and beautiful.  I know that Mitzi understood that Gabby couldn't be there, but it will take Gabby a bit longer to come to terms with what has happened.

Thank you all so very much.

Oh Susie, I am so sorry for your friend. I (we) know how she's feeling. I can feel her anguish. Guilt is a crushing feeling and so difficult to overcome. I do know that having you as a friend will be a blessing for Gabby. Please let her know I'm praying for her and sending comforting thoughts her way.

Thank you so much, Maria.  I know she will feel the comfort of your prayers. 

I can tell you that having Gabby as a friend has been such a blessing to me!  She called me during T.J.'s last week at home with me.  She got to talk to him on the phone and hear his big voice and his big purrs.  She was nearly as crushed as I was when he left this earth.  She is so dear to me!

Susie,
I with will certainly pray for Gabby to have peace.  I truly identify with her feelings.  I would feel the same way.
What a wonderful thing that we can make real, true friends on this site and be there for each other over time.

Please tell Gabby I am sorry for her loss, and also understand how she feels about not being there for Mitzi at the end.  Mitzi will have understood that her Mummy Gabby was not well and for that reason was unable to be with her, our animals sense these things.   I am sending prayers and positive thoughts to Gabby to help her to heal.

I am very new on here and don´t know any of you, but am going through a bad time myself with loss and I feel for everyone one of you, in your varying stages of grief and loss.  My prayers are with you all.

I am praying that Gabby feels all the healing being sent to her and it helps her to feel a little better.
