Chloe was an FeLV positive cat that we adopted from a wonderful organization when she was about two years old. She was born to an FeLV positive mom on February 26, 2006. Unfortunately we lost her way to soon to the illness. Chloe went to sleep forever today. I woke to find her part way under our sofa. I am having a difficult time saying goodbye to her. We are going to have her cremated and returned home where she belongs. |
She was acting odd yesterday. She kept putting her feet in the dogs water bowl, laying in the middle of the floor and coming down with the dogs, something she really never did since one liked to play chase. As I slept on the couch last night I felt her at my feet. If only I could have held her when she crossed over. I can find some comfort in knowing she was in her home, surrounded by her family that loved her so much.
Chloe you were the friendliest cat. You just loved everybody and everybody loved you. I am so angry and upset that you left us so soon. Maybe God has different plans for you. Know that Maggie and Twinkle and Mickey are with you and welcome you with open arms. I remember every time we played a board game you would sit right in the middle of it. Joey will miss you terribly. I am still not sure how to tell him that you are no longer physically here. I am going to miss you scratching at the carpet in the bathroom door to try and get in.
Remember when you were walking on the edge of the tub and fell in when Joey was taking a bath? You were not to happy about that.
You would always lick Mike's head at night. He would wake up to that. Of course going bald he can feel it more right? I will miss you sleeping with me at night. I want you to know how special you are and how much you touched our lives. We learned a lot from you sweet girl. You were so strong and so brave. It saddens me that this illness took you away from us way to soon. If only I could have done more for you.
I remember you used to roll on your back and try to get us to play. We knew better to play with you when you were that way. You always grabbed around our wrists and scratched us. You loved the pole toy and the laser light that we would project on the floor and wall. You were so entertaining, so full of life.
I learned so much from you Chloe. I hope in return that we provided you with the home you always wanted. I want to thank your foster mom Clara for caring for you before you came to us. She loves you too. I know she will miss you.
Remember how I would joke with you and say girls have to stick together? I am not sure what I am going to do without you now. There are to many guys in the house Chloe. Why did you leave me sweetheart?
It is hard to try to find the words to tell you just how much we loved you. We still do and we always will. You are not gone Chloe but have moved to a place without pain, a place where FeLV cannot touch or harm you anymore. Look down upon Joey and us please sweet girl.
I love you Chloe. I am not ready to say goodbye to you. You had that terrible disease yet lived your life so gracefully and so full of life. Thank you for touching my life in so many ways. I only can hope in some small way I touched yours. Until we meet again my precious little furry girl............all my love.
Your forever mom, Marcy
And so I said "Good night" to you as I walked in through the door
I am so sad that you have left us here so soon my little girl. I will miss your cuddles and purring. Even waking up to you lying on my legs and I cannot move them. Each morning as I get ready for work, you would scratch at the rug by the bathroom door to be let in. You would check on me and then leave only to come back a few minutes later. The door will always be open for you to come and see us. God bless you as you have blessed our lives. We love you Chloe.
Love and miss you, your Dad
Thanks to the wonderful rescue organization for all their support through this difficult time. They were there with us through it all. We appreciate all of you so much. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to adopt Chloe and to provide her a loving home. We are so happy you chose us and that she chose us too. She enriched our lives and taught us to stay strong, be brave and to be the best that you can be, despite the limitations you think you may have.
Chloe's family would like to dedicate this page not only to beautiful Chloe but to all the cats and kittens stricken with feline leukemia. Especially to the ones that did not have a warm, loving home. We dedicate this page to the kittens and cats that have been sadly forgotten, went to their new life at the bridge without knowing loving human hands and that never had a chance to have a family of their own. Chloe is your family now and she will watch over all of you. Rest well little ones. You are all so very brave and so very special.
Mom misses you so much. It is so empty here without you. I took a piece of your fur yesterday. I hope you do not mind. I went out this morning and when I came back home I cannot help but sit here and cry. I see you sometimes in my mind sweet girl. I cannot move your food or water bowl or your litter box yet. I guess a part of me keeps hoping that you still might need it. I know you are not longer physically here but I am having a hard time accepting it. I cannot and will not say goodbye to you. I hope I can see you again someday. I will only say goodnight to you Chloe. I know you went to sleep forever yesterday and entered into a new life. I am sorry you had that terrible illness and I am sorry it took you away from us so soon. I want you to know that I loved you so much. I always will. You were such a special little girl. You took a big piece of my heart with you when you left us. No one will ever replace it. Mom loves you my girl. I hope you are happy and free of feline leukemia. Send a hug down to me. Even in your last days you sat on my lap. That was special to me and I thank you for that. You were so sick and tried to comfort me by coming near me. I knew in my heart you were going to leave us but it does not make the pain and hurt I feel right now any easier. I love you my precious furry girl.
You came home today. We brought your ashes home with us. What a hard time I had. I held you and carried you to the car and held you on the way home. Even Joey asked to hold you. I know he is beginning to understand now where you are. We brought you home and placed you in your bed in our room. You loved to be there. I sat on the floor in our room and played with Joey. I could not help but take the box and place it on my lap. That is where you would be if you were physically with us. I miss you little girl. Joey gave you more crosses and a piece of paper that said Chloe xoxoxo on it. I think you already know that though. I am glad you are home but sad I can no longer pet you or hold you. I have a little peace knowing I am down here typing to you and you are in your bed in my room. I want you to know I still think of you very often. You are a very special cat that has a very special place in my heart. Welcome home little girl. I miss you so much. The house is not the same without you.
I wanted you to know I love you sweetheart. We miss you. We replaced all the carpets upstairs and saved a piece that you clawed up. What really aggravated us when you were here is now a treasured memory. I got your urn the other day. It is a bronze cat curled up in a bed sleeping. She has angel wings and has a heart tag on her collar. I had your name engraved on it. It is beautiful. Not as beautiful as you were though. I thought it fit you since you loved your bed so much. Thank you for touching my life little one. I love you. Your Mom
It is almost your birthday so I placed a cake on your site for you. I miss you my little one. There is a void in my heart that will never be filled. I love you Chloe. It is not the same without you my girl.
I am so sorry I have not been here in a while. I think of you everyday. Annie joined you yesterday at the bridge. Please watch over her and stay by her side always. You are both missed very much. Love, Mom
10-23-2011 Hi Chloe girl. I am so sorry I have not visited you in a while. I really have no excuse and I am sorry. We are in a new hous now. Annie is with you. Make sure that you take ccare of her. Both my furry girls are not physically with me. That is so hard. I am lost without the both of you. You are my sweetheart. We started a fund called Chloe's angels when you passed on. I am not sure if I told you that. Every month we give money to the resuce we adopted you from and volunteer with so that they can have money to help other cats that are ill. We had a local artist do a very beautiful colored pencil drawing of you to remember you by. We are getting one of Annie as well. You were the best cat. You were so friendly and so loving. I miss you so much my Chloe girl. I love you. Mom
Happy Halloween pretty girl. Mom misses you. I hope that you are doing well and that you are happy. It sure is lonely without you. I miss you sitting on my lap my friendly little girl. You are very special to me my Chloe girl. I love you.
Chloe my girl, It has been one year since you left us. Not a day goes by where I do not think of you. You gave us so much love and joy. You were an amazing girl. You taught us so much. I would have loved if you would have stayed with us longer. No one will ever replace you. You are a very special little girl, you still are. I love you Chloe. Mommy misses you so much.
I love you Chloe.
Chloe, its been four years since you left us. I miss you sweet girl. I hope you are happy. There is a void without you. You will never be forgotten. I love you. Mom
