awwww.... *sniffle*

Aww, geez Beth I'm so sorry. This is too sad. Where do you put them in the house?

oh my.
gives new meaning to the term "cat box".

I'm sorry that was in bad taste... but,
what do you expect from the pup..

I am really sorry. Mom had our cats cremated too and they have thier own boxes but we buried them.

It's horrible to lose one pet let alone two pets so close together. I just wanted to let you know again that I'm sorry for your losses. I'm sure they will forever have a place of honor in your home.

Snarfle. I have a beautiful box too, and I placed it in a blue velvet bag, like my girls eyes. It was a better option for me too, I don't own my own home and I couldn't leave my girl anywhere without us! Hugs! Thank god for my boyfriend, he made all of the decisions for me, I was a wreck!

When we put one of my cats to sleep a few weeks ago, I had to make the decision of what to do with his remains. That was almost worse than deciding it was his time to go. I couldn't deal with seeing a box of his ashes every day (plus, I wasn't quite sure where to put them), so we brought him home and buried him. Next to the birdbath right outside our screened-in porch. That porch was his favorite place in the house, so I guess it's a fitting place for him.

I can't imagine having two boxes to deal with. I'm so sorry for your loss!

I am So sorry!

It's just not fair ....

Aw....kitties in a box. That's sad but also kinda creepy. May they rest in peace and have unlimited access to catnip and tuna fish.

Hi, Beth. I've been reading your blog and your husband's for a while but I've never commented over here. I am sorry for the loss of your furry friends. I have similar boxes for my Bonnie and Molly. They left us one year apart, and even though the boxes are the same, the wood on Bonnie's is lighter. Which is appropriate because her fur was lighter - Molly was black. Your writing makes me laugh and cry, that's why I come back.

Awww, I'm sorry! Where are you going to put them?

again... sorry. *sniffle*

I am so sorry Beth. I had to take my two to the vet to get blood drawn this morning, and the howling and shaking made me cry. I can only imagine what you're going through.

It's so sad to lose a pet. And two at almost the same time - almost un-doable.

the boxes are beautiful.

I feel your pain having lost my 13 year old golden, Dexter. I know they are up in heaven having a good ole time. Doesn't make the hurt any less.

Have a good weekend.

awww... I was so sad to hear about your losses.

I hope that someday another kitty finds it's way into your family, because you seem like good pet people. :)

Awwww, hugs.

It's good that you have their ashes...I did the same with my cat, only our vet put them in an ugly tin can. Your boxes are very nice.

Oh Beth. I'm so sorry.

Ooohhhh... I'm still so sad for you guys.

At least you can keep them close to you. This is what I plan to do with my cat when, god forbid, anything happens to her.


I don't know how you got through losing two so close together. My Minden's sick, and all I could think about when he was at the vet yesterday was, "Please, not now, I'm not near done mourning Simba." Minden's fine. Though his anxiety about Simba and about my mourning Simba has caused him to have peeing problems. He's on an antidepressant now...yes, it's true. I'm thinking I could use one myself right now.

Kudos to you for going through all that and still being such a great mom to Mia. The boxes are really nice; I opted for the blue urn for Simba. I seriously want to keep it by my bed for a while--even if it seems creepy. I just want him near me. I keep some of his fur in a pretty bag on my nighttable for now. Where will you put Callie and Pixel? And, do you have another cat(s)?

Second time here (from hollyrhea) and I'm so sorry. We joke that we are going to have a collection of urns on our bookshelf because we only adopt older cats (and mostly ones with medical problems). We wouldn't have it any other way, but when the time comes for them to pass, I swear I'm never going through that heartache again. And then I do and cherish every minute.

You're boxes are way better than ours. Now I have urn envy!

That is one of the saddest photos I've ever seen. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I don't want to sound heartless (you said they don't shed) but how do you tell them apart?

:O( I'm going to go snuggle my dog now.

Aww. Those are lovely boxes. I don't know that I'd be able to handle having them around the house, but I'm sure you did what was best for you. It's a nice tribute to two much-loved kitties.

Hugs for you coming from my two, Beavis & Iko.

I swear an onion chopper has been following me around everywhere lately - shoo, with the stinky onions! I can't take much more.

Sorry you lost your kitties.

I have Shubi's ashes too. I'm looking for a beautiful ginger jar to place them in. (right now they are in a black urn, ewww!) Hugs, Beth!

:( :(

My God, that made me cry. I'm so sorry.

That makes my heart hurt.

Beth,I am so sorry about your losses. I lost my 24 year old cat in 2001 and had her privately cremated. My dad found her in 1977 when she was 3 weeks old. Until he found her I was terrified of cats but she was so small she fit into the palm of my hand. Our Boxer, Bruce, loved her to pieces. I moved out of my parent's house a month after my dad rescued her and then a year later adopted a cat who I named Oliver. I had Oliver for 6 years when I met my husband. They hated each other on sight! But I was a package deal since I had the cats before I met my husband. Unfortunately, I had to put Ollie to sleep at 17 years of age because he had anemia and the vet said there was nothing he could do for him. A few months before I put Ollie to sleep I was feeding a Momma cat and 8 of her kittens outside our apartment building. I fell in love with one of them and my husband rescued her one night. He insisted on naming her and she is now known as Ziggy. She is now 17 and I hope she makes it past 24. We now have another cat I adopted from my vet's rescue, Simon. We had to put our Black Lab to sleep on July 19,2004. He, too, was privately cremated. When I brought him home, I sat on the bench in the yard, where we used to sit together and just cried my eyes out. It really sucks losing a part of your family. And I've said it before, but I have to say it again, Mia is just Beautiful!

Two of ours are in the pet cemetary. It's hard to find them open but we've gone over there and the girls have thrown wild flowers through the fence.

that blows

I'll use my 9 year old's favorite sentence for this... That sucks monkey balls!

Aw so sad. My cat as a kid is buried in my parents' back yard under a concrete sleeping kitty statue. I too think you guys seem like treat pet owners and it'd be nice if a kitty found its way into your family.

Wow. that makes it really real.
