Dillon My Beloved Maine Coon

by Laurie & Bart
(Pittsburgh, PA, USA)

Dillon was a 9 yr old brown/white/tabby male who touched our hearts like no other...

His gentle spirit, soft voice, and companionship was like no other cat we have ever owned.

He loved his continuous water, laying in our clothes, sleeping on his toys, and mostly just being with us.

We had to euthanize Dillon on November 20, 2011 because of cancer in his right hip region...our vet suggested amputation and we loved him too much to do that...after some soul searching & having a chance to say goodbye we put him to rest the way he deserved, our handsome boy with dignity.

Rest in peace our special silly Dilly...we will always love you & know we will meet again...

Again thanks for you kind words. I just realized your post says you're from Colorado... that's where we got Dillon's name from, Dillon, CO...

we have been remembering "special" things too & I want to share with you that Dillon loved to smell my roses from my garden then nibble on them afterwards...

Have you adopted another Maine Coon? Again thanks for sharing Kato & God Bless You during this special time of year...

We are compiling Lessons Learned from Kato that are helping us move through the grief, like 'Live in the moment' and 'Stretch the britches…' God Bless both of you as well! Hold on to each other!!

It was your memorial of Kato Lunt that truly touched my heart...Maine Coons seem to touch all that love them so deeply and I know how broken my heart is and I felt your pain & had to share in hopes of finding comfort...God Bless you.

I feel your pain.
by: Carol
I know just how you feel. We put our Scrappy down Nov 1 after his long battle with heart disease...He loved his water fountain and boxes too. Never killed a thing.

He helped save many kittens lives and animals that others caught. He is the first thing I think of in the mornings and the last thing I think of at night...

My heart is broken and I know yours is too. Hang in there we will try to get through it...We were lucky to have had such good buddies...I sure do miss that bushy tail by my face at night...He was 11..

My heart goes out to you in your loss! We lost Kato Lunt the end of October - now Kato and Dillon are playing in catnip strewn streets! BrruuggghhhHHTT!!!! Eek, eek! Remember and cherish the good times! They will sustain you through the empty, 'missing the furry angel' times.
