We thought our family was complete with Drama Queen, Rooney and Kaiser, but on the 31st of Jan, 09, your Daddy and Mummy saw you at Tigerlily cat rescue, a big brown tabby with a crinkled ear...it was love at first site.|
Your 'rap' sheet said you were a big fella but extemely sweet and very laid back, you were, and oh so much more!
We brought you home, little did we know we would only have you for such a short time, sweet boy. After eight weeks you stopped eating and became very poorly. You had fatty liver disease. The vet gave you a feeding tube in your tummy. After two weeks you pulled it out and went straight to the bowl! You were a brave boy and pulled through which surprised the vets, they called you wonder boy! The next few months were great, you slept with Brittany, kept Daddy's lap warm every night to watch T.V., climbed the palms, which would fall over with you still on them! Soil, plants, and tabby flying everywhere. I loved my morning coffee, it always came with an Arthur cuddle, oh I miss it so! You wrapped around my lap and loved tummy tickles and would lift your back leg up, hint hint, time for belly rubs, Dad!
You loved cat milk and ham, as well as escaping to the neighbours lawn to lie under the tree, you looked like such a proud little tiger in the sun.
One day you became sleepy and stopped eating. We thought your liver problems had returned, but a scan revealed a shadow. The vet explained it was one of two things, and sadly nothing could be done with either case.
Oh Arthur, you were so short changed in life, we are so, so sorry darling.
The vet said it was kinder to let you go, it was so sad. We came to hold you and rain kisses on your fur. You got up, oh baby, you thought we were bringing you home, instead we were releasing you from your pain. Mummy is so sorry Arthur.
It would be your 3rd birthday in December, then Christmas we didn't get to share one with you sweet, sweet boy, not one, that thought alone breaks my heart and makes me angry. I know I shouldn't feel like that but I can't help it.
On Monday we did bring you home to rest, none of us could stop crying. Mummy is going to start Arthur's garden soon. I already bought a beautiful china bird house.
We miss you so much snuggle bear. Forever locked in our hearts until we meet again. Run, play with your new friends. Lie in the sun under the trees and feel the love we send. Thank you for choosing us to be your family, it was an honor.
Love you forever and ever

To our beautiful boy on your 4th birthday, we love you very much. Always in our thoughts. We miss you cuddles and attempts at milk stealing. Always in our hearts.
Dear Ms. Moody:
Recently we were told that you suffered the loss of your cat, Arthur. Recongnizing the bond of affection that existed between you and your pet, the Doctores and Staff of Troy Veterinary Hospital have made a contribution in memory of Arthur to the Comanion Animal Fund here at Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
Enclosed for your information, please find a brochure explaining how the Companion Animal Fund supports the study of diseases and disorders affecting companion animals. Our outstanding faculty has made tremendous strides for animal care and health thanks to the generosity of verterinary profession, associations, foundations, and many members of our community. The Companion Animal Fund makes it possible to continue the research, impacting future veterinary treatment.
While animal health and welfare is out main concern, the results of many studies carried out with money from the Companion Animal Fund have implications also for human and environmental health.
We are most greatful for this contribution in support of our work, and it is our earnest hope that you derive some comfort from this kind gesture of sympathy.

And God asked the felie spirit
"Are you coming then?" Asked God.
"But don't they understand," Asked God,
"Eventually they will understand,"
Hard to believe it's been three years since you've passed. We miss you so much. When I was running today I looked into the sky and saw a huge rainbow, and I know you're up there.
Hard to believe four years have gone since you passed away. Miss you so much, little Art.
---Hard to believe seven years have passed since you left us, forever loved, forever missed beautiful boy xxxxx
