In Memory

by Marty
(Bloomingburg, NY)

I don't know if you would post something like this, but one of my four Maine Coons passed away today in my arms at home. I have had them all since they were born. He was about to turn four

I made a picture dedication to him and uploaded it to youtube at the link above.

Whether you can or cannot post it I am grateful there are people like yourselves that share in the passion of pet ownership.

England Friend
by: Sandy creek

I love you for being so compassionate, what a fabulous tribute. I too have only lost my handsome, darling boy of 8, just two weeks ago to a car, I did everything to save him, but with the best medical treatment he still could not be saved, I am truly heartbroken. It's so warming to see others that love our delightful puddy cat family as I do. My darling boy Twitch I loved you and will love you till my last day on earth. Well done again for your meaningfulntribute to Charlee.

What Love!
by: Corey

Your tribute to Charlee was so Beautiful! I too am so sorry for your loss! I have had many kitties and have lost many. Some of my kitty babies I was holding in my arms when they passed also. It hurts so much! I have such special connections with my kitties. I do not have a Maine Coon, but have always wanted one. All my babies were strays and drop offs. And then to my surprise, a neighbor's kitty began to visit us and we discovered that he is a " Main Coon." He sure is beautiful and sweet. I have no doubt that you will always have that Special " Kitty " Friend in your life!

Oh what a lose..
by: Joretta

I, like all the others had sreamed of tears, running down my face, for the beautiful tribute of your loved one, for I dread the day that I might have to say "Goodbye", to my Scrappie. He is a 28lb half Main coon and Half Bobcat,for he came from the Appalachian Mountains.
He left the mountains, while staying between the van seats and I could hear him saying, Goodbye in his different crys...hoping to return some day.
He would go up into, who know what part of the mountains and stay for days, even weeks, unless I called to him and the echoeing I know he heard, for he would return in a couple of days.
What a beautiful breed of cats. I've had many, very many, Cats.
They will all be in Heaven with us together..sayin "How do you do"?

We will always love our Charlee and Charlie Maine Coons.
by: Marshall B.

I know how you feel as I lost my Charlie to failing CRF, chronic renal failure. My Charlie
was almost 15 years old. I got him as a little kitty, and he laid in my lap while we drove to his new home. Charlie was daddy's kitty boy. I missed him a night in my bed. Both of our Maine coons are happily playing Heaven!

So very sorry
by: Jenny

Marty - I'm so very sorry for your loss of Charlee. What a beautiful video dedication - I, too, cried my eyes out watching it. I can see just how much he meant to you and how special your bond was.

I know how you feel because I, too, lost my best buddy Toby in April and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss him and cry because he's not here anymore. Toby had just turned 6 yrs old which is far too young, he was so young and had so much more life to live, just like Charlee.

Their passing leaves such a hole in our lives but they're both playing and waiting at the Bridge for us to come get them someday. I hope that the memories you and Charlee made together will bring you comfort. Sending you hugs!

I feel your pain
by: Mia

I'm so sorry for your loss and I feel your pain. Those Furry babies become such a huge part of our family. The love and affection they give is unconditional and so pure. My Main Coon Bruce passed away in my arms from cancer on July 7th. I also had him since he was a tiny fur baby. Today is his birthday... he would have turned 15 years old. I had him cremated so on those beautiful sunny days I can sit his urn out on the deck ... His favorite place to be. I cry for him every day... Bruce left a HUGE paw print in my heart and I feel so lost without him. >^.^< I bet our two furry Angels are up in Rainbow Bridge playing together chasing butterfly's having a blast.

So sorry
by: Lee Cousins

Yes, of course you should post it. I expect there are very few of us who read your blog who haven't lost a fur baby and have experienced total despair. I am so very sorry and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank all of you so very much
by: Marty

I cannot possibly express my gratitude for the wonderful things you all have said.
What the best part is, finding this site and all of you.
It takes a special person to understand how deep the love can be for your little ones.
I am blessed to still have three of the litter and they are healthy.

I am very touched and once again, thank you all,

I just cried my eyes out when I viewed your touching salute to dearest Charlee. I lost my Maine Coon two years ago and she looked almost exactly like your Fur Baby. What a terrible loss. I join all the others in Maine Coon Cat Nation in extending my deepest sympathy to you and your cat family. Charlee will always be so special! xoxo

Unfortunately I know just how you feel. I lost my Scrappy (buff coon) in Nov. 2011 and still cry for him everyday...He was my best buddy...Life is so strange without him. I lost him to heart failure after a 6 month battle that he tried to make easy on me. He took his meds like a little trooper and tried to make me laugh. He was 11 years old and tamed many feral kittens to find homes. He loved everyone animal and human, and they loved him...Four years old is just horrible...Hang in there....Charlee would want you to be strong...He was...

Condolences On Your Loss
by: Richard

My heart just broke when I watched your video and saw Charlee and his littermates. So young, I can't imagine one passing that early. I have two 'Coons and a Tabby and I can't even begin to think how painful it would be to lose one but to lose a has to hurt and I am so sorry. These most precious of God's creations give us so much joy. RIP Charlee and enjoy your run over the Rainbow Bridge. Many there are that went before and they are there to welcome you and play with you.
