"Torri" Luv Paws A Torrid Affair of Pinecoon
Our beloved Torri
Torri, one amazing cat. The Queen of all she surveyed and the light of our lives for ten years (an adopted "retiree" when seven). When our grief has subsides we will again adopt a Maine Coon... but Torri can never be replaced.

I cry every time I read of the beautiful Maine Coons e have lost and feel so for all of you. Adopting another is indeed "pay forward" Thank you for sharing that.Jul 30, 2012
Praying for you
I am so sorry for your loss. Torri looks so much like my beautiful Katie who died suddenly two years ago. Remember you will be with her again when you cross the Rainbow Bridge together.God be with you in your time of sorrow.Jul 29, 2012
Oh, absolutely a queen!Jul 29, 2012
Room for more...
My deepest condolences on your loss. I, too, lost a beloved Coon mix 3 1/2 months ago at only 6 yrs old. Like my Toby, Torri can never be replaced.
I thought that furkids that special are one of a kind and maybe they are. But after a week, I so missed that Maine Coon attention and love - the house was too quiet and empty even though I have 3 DSH rescues and a small dog.
2 weeks later I got a female MC kitten. 2 months after that, I got another. While neither Caoimhe or Maya is Toby and my heart still aches for him, the girls have brought the love and joy back into my life that I needed and only a Maine Coon can.
Like Toby, Torri can't be replaced but there's always room for one (or 2) more.
Thoughts and hugs,
Sorry for your loss, I lost a moggie kitten of 17 months, last week too. It breaks your heart doesn't it. My other 3 keep sitting right were we buried her, as if they know.Jul 28, 2012
Pay it forward

So sorry to hear of your loss...A wise old man once was comforting me when my beloved Sadie crossed over the bridge.
I will never forget what he said to me as I professed to never own another pet again because the pain was just too much. He said..."Sadie was a wonderful and loving cat to you.
If you never give another animal the chance to repay your safe shelter with their love and companionship, then you are in a sense saying that she didn't pay you enough." Thinking of it that way changed my whole perception of the pain I was suffering.
When you go to get that new kitty...remember that you are paying it forward! And smile up at Torri for I am sure she will be smiling back at you. :)Jul 28, 2012
God bless you and keep you. Your sweet baby is with St Francis with my 2 dogs and all other animals waiting to see you again!Jul 28, 2012
Don't Wait to get a new friend
No, you can never replace that beautiful animal but a new one eases your pain... I lost my best friend/companion and three days later my hubby said we are going to the shelter.... there we found a small tabby with green eyes and he has grown into such a smart and adorable little boy..we have such fun with him...it eased my pain considerably to have him to love..and he is one fantastic animal! Don't wait....
