I am so, so sorry.

I am very, very sorry. I can only imagine how painful that must be. The memories of loving pets always stay in your heart.

Beth, so very sad for you and the fish/cactus household.

That is very sad, I'm terribly sorry.

Oh, Beth. I am so sorry. Sending you warm hugs and my deepest, deepest sympathy.


I am so sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry. I know she was a part of your family.

Oh, hon. What a beautiful face. I'm so sorry to hear she's gone.

Very sorry, ((((((((hugs)))))))))

Oh, honey, I am so very sorry. Callie was very lucky to have had you, and you were blessed to have her. It's just never long enough .... My sincere condolences.

Beth, honey I'm so sorry. I know that Cally's been a member of the family for so long. I'm really sorry for your loss.


Sorry Cactus-Fish family. Losing a pet licks....sorry! I've got nothing else either.

oh no. :( *hugshugshugs* I'm so sorry!! :'(

oh my goodness, beth. i just started crying just from that simple sentiment, and thinking of my own kitty who is still here with me. don't let anyone make you feel like this isn't a huge huge deal, and take all the time you need to feel sad.

she looked like a very happy baby.


Beth, So sorry for the loss of your furry baby. Many hugs. BTDT and it sucks.


Oh no! I'm so sorry! You'll see her again at the Rainbow Bridge...

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Oh, I am so sorry...
((hugs to you))

I'm so sorry to hear this... we'll be thinking of you guys... let me know if there's anything I can do, or if you need to talk.

I'm so sorry, Beth.

I am so sorry Beth. She was a special member of your family and you will miss her..take care...

I'm so sorry to hear the loss of your precious Callie. I'm sitting here bawling like a baby because I know how hard it is to loose a pet.

I'm sorry.

Delurking to pass on my sympathies - it's always hard to lose a friend. Thinking of you.

There's really nothing to say at times like these, but I felt compelled to try anyway. Thinking of you...

I am so sad to hear it. Pets really are members of the family...I'm glad at least that you were able to share 19 wonderful years with her.
RIP, beautiful kitty.

I am so sorry, Beth.

I'm so sorry, Beth.

I wish there was something more to say.

I am so sorry. So very sad.

So sorry Beth. She was a beauty.

Oh Beth, so sorry for your loss.

I'm very sorry about Callie. Try to find strength and comfort in the rest of your family. That has helped me through some hard times. It will get better.

Sorry about your kitty...I know how you feel, we lost our dog of 15 years last year. It's very hard. I hope you guys heal quickly.

Take care Beth

((Hugs)) So sorry to hear about your cat. I can still remember my childhood cat being put to sleep. It is not easy losing a pet. They are just like family members.

Oh, Beth, I'm so sorry. God bless sweet Callie.

Aw, Beth, I'm so, so sorry.

I just saw this on Rude Cactus and told Chris how sorry I was. I'm sorry for you too. Beautiful sweet kitty and I know you'll miss her.

I'm so sorry. Losing a pet is terrible.

I'm really sorry. Cats are family members, too.

I am truly so sorry.

*sniffle* i am so sorry beth. there's really no words to make one feel better in this situation, so i'll just leave it at that. the hearts of the internets are broken right along with yours....

So sorry, honey. I know it sucks.

I am so sorry Beth - what a big part of your life Callie was and will always be. Sending lots of hugs to the Cactus-Fish household.

Oh crap. Beth, I'm so sorry.

oh, Beth.... I'm so, so sorry!!!

My sympathy for you and yours. Losing a little one is so hard.

Beth, I am so very sorry. Take care, and know that she'll always be with you.

Terrible news. I'm so sorry.

Beth, I'm so, so sorry.

I am so sorry.

so very very sorry.

I'm so sorry, Beth. I wish there was something I could do. She was a beautiful cat and was very loved.

I'm so very sorry. It brings tears to my eyes to think that you lost your little furry friend.

I'm so sorry. I've been there myself.

Oh sweety, I'm so sorry.

I'm so sorry for you both, Beth & Chris. What a beautiful face she had...

So sorry Beth..My thoughts are with you :(

Hi Beth, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. Its one of life's most difficult lessons in learning to deal with the loss of a close pet, especially one you've had for such a long time. I always found a little comfort in reading about the "Rainbow Bridge". It's nice to think of them there enjoying all that catnip.

I'm so very sorry.

It so hard to lose a pet. I am sorry. I know in some ways maybe you breathed a sigh of relief but also your heart aches for that absence. I hope kitty went without pain.

I'm so sorry, honey.

I'm so sorry. Losing a pet is one of the hardest things to go through. It makes it almost to hard to have a pet, but in the end, we are better to have had them in our lives.

My heart breaks for your little family.

I'm so sorry, I know how much it hurts. I'm sure she knew how much you all loved her and she couldn't have had a better home.

So sorry for your loss, Beth.

Aww, I'm so sorry.

I am so sorry for your loss, beth. There are few things worse than losing a pet.

"Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy."

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how much you cared for your cat and how long you had her. I'll be thinking of you and your family.

I'm so sorry. My thoughts are with you today.

So sorry for your loss. Cally was lucky to have you, and you were lucky to have her. Thinking of you.

Nineteen years of happy memories go with her; she's well-packed for the Great Catnip Fields in the Sky.

I'm sorry for you, Beth and poor baby Callie. Sending you a huge hug.

Beth, I'm so sorry. Lots and lots of hugs!

sorry fish

I am so sorry, Beth. My thoughts are with you & your family. :-(

I'm sorry, Beth.

You have my most heartfelt Sympathy

I am sorry for your loss Beth...

So sorry for you loss Beth!

So, so sorry.

so sad.. so sorry!

So very sorry for your loss. She was gorgeous. She'll be watching over you all now as she romps and plays with no pain and lots of kitten energy.

So sorry to hear about your kitty :(

I'm sorry.

We just lost ours Friday night.

I'm so sorry.

Having just lost my pup Shubi a few weeks ago, I can honestly say, I know how you feel. I'm so sorry. {{{{{hugs}}}}}

I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Be thankful, and I'm sure you are, for all the wonderful years where you got to have Callie as a part of your family. I'm so sorry for your loss. She was lovely.

I'm so sorry, Beth.

I'm sorry about your lil kitty. *hugs*

I am so sorry. They become such important parts of our lives and are sorely missed.

Wishing you peace and comfort

took me all day to respond; i am really really sad for you. i hugged my 7+1/2-year-old kittie extra hard this evening and gave her way too many extra kisses. and then she bit me and scratched me on the boob. i love her so much.

Beth, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with y'all.

I'm sorry she's gone, but I'm sure she lived a good life with you, Chris and Mia. She was lucky to have you all.

I am so sorry.

i've always said that grandmas and pets should live forever. i'm so sorry for you and your dear friend.

Delurking to say I'm so sorry for your loss. There's not much more difficult than losing a pet. My thoughts are with you.

So sorry Beth. :( I know that may seem incredibly lame coming from a sporadic commenter over the blogosphere, but I mean it wholeheartedly.

I'm very very sorry! To lose a dear pet is just like losing a best friend!

Big Huggs! Im sorry for your loss

We're sending you a hug - we love our furry angels, too. I'm sure you gave her a wonderful home.....

Nothing but love from this corner, Beth.

she lived a good long kitty life. i am sooo sorry though, i know how much it hurts to lose a pet/friend!!...kiss and squeeze mia + chris when you feel sad.

In my family we always say that we'll see them when we all have bright eyes. I'm so sorry for your loss. She was a beauty.


So very sorry...

That's a long time to have a companion. And it's funny how they become much more than pets...they become members of the family.

You're in my thoughts.

I am so sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry. :(

So, so sorry.
Hugs to all.

aw sweetie. i'm sorry for your loss. i'm sure she was a great kittie.

she had a wonderful life and you both gave each other all the love and care deserved. what more could an owner and pet want?

bet she's in kitty heaven dozing in a warm patch of sunlight =)

I'm sorry... :( I'm going to hug my cat... even though he hates that... :(...

I am sorry for your loss. Hugs to the fish/cactus/bean.

i am so sad for you guys.

Just read about callie on Chris's's not easy to lose your furbaby...lots of hugs sent your way...

So sorry to read that, what a lovely cat.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

All I can say is I'm so sorry and it made me cry. Cats are the best creatures in the world.

As someone who's hoping to get her very first cat very soon, I can't imagine how hard it must be to lose one. I'm so sorry you all lost a beloved member of your family.

Oh, Beth! I'm so sorry for you guys. She lived a nice, long life and was greatly loved by her mom and dad :)

I am so deeply sorry. Pets are members of the family. And great pets are so much more than that. I hope you aren't hurting too much and that the pain goes away after a while

So very, very sorry.

So sorry for the loss in your family--hope you all are doing as well as can be expected under the circumstances :(

So sorry for your loss. It's awful saying goodbye to a friend. Hang in there.

Losing a pet is so hard...they are a member of the family. Hug Mia extra tight...hopefully it will ease the pain.

for someone who only knows you minimally through your blog (I'm a student, so I don't have time to follow as closely as I'd like), I wept an awful lot reading about Calypso. I'm very sorry to hear about your loss...and that doesn't even begin to cover it.

I am so sorry.

i haven't been around here lately and i'm sad to see this...losing a pet is horrible, but i am sure she had a long, happy life.

I said it to Chris, and I'll say it to you:


Just, *hugs*.

I didn't see this sooner, sorry! I'm so sorry, I know she was with you for so long, before you were a mother or a wife, when you were just Beth. It must make it doubly hard. Hugs to you.

I just read about callie today. I usually keep up with your blog...but had to put my dear Fred to sleep on Feb. 20th, and I havent been around much, I have been moping. Just wanted to say Im so sorry for your loss..I know exactly how you feel. I have 5 cats...Fred was my pride and joy, my mommas boy. I had his paws and his name tattooed on my back, and made a memory box to keep his ashes at the foot of my Buddha. Again, so so sorry about Calypso. SalemsMom

Like I told Mr. C...I am GLAD that Callie had time with the Bean! That makes my hart happy!


I'm so sorry, Beth. Big huge hugs to you.
