I am so very sorry, my friend. Marmalade was a beautiful cat and a wonderful companion. I am so glad he is not suffering now. But I know it is so hard for you and your family to lose him, especially so soon after Jasper.
My heart goes out to you, my friend. Yes, sleep, rest, and let your heart heal a bit from its loss.
All my love,
Cindy

Lydia said...

I am so very sorry Viv for your loss. I came and read and the tears fell to my blouse.

I had to put 3 of my loved ones down one after the other over the course of 1 1/2 -2 years, and it was so very hard. I said that I didn't want to do it anymore, that I wanted them to go peaceably in their sleep.

I am so sorry. Marmalade is with Jasper now.

Memory Eternal !xo Lydia

Stephanie said...

I am so sorry about little Marmalade.

It really been a bad few weeks for animal deaths, 2 our our dear friends have lost dogs and you are the second blog I've visited today who has lost a beloved pet. They are such cherished darlings and a huge part of our lives. I am so sorry for your loss.

Doris said...

I'm really sorry. I have been following your story with Marmalade for a while and I know how you feel now. My prayers go out to you and to Marmalade.

BlackCrow said...

So very sad to hear this news about Marmalade.
He lived a grand and happy life with you, your family and your warm home environment. He was very lucky. As was his dad Jasper.
A friend once told me after she lost her kitties she had to get herself another pair in honor of the ones that passed away.
Looks like you have two very precious little ones that wont replace but will be given all the love and warmth that you gave to Jasper and Marmalade.
Take care

Susan said...

Dear Viv, My hubby and I both have tears in our eyes. We know how hard this is. This is one of those things that truly takes time. Hang in there. Love, Susan

bojojoti said...

Oh, poor Viv. (((hugs))) Our hearts become so attached to our fur babies. Fannie and Figgy will never replace Jasper and Marmalade, but the babys' antics and sweetness can take away the sting of their loss.

Pixie said...

Viv,
I am so sorry to hear this. Lots of love to you and your family.

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

My dear sweet friend I am crying with you. I am praying for comfort and peace. I cannot wait to see pictures of you with your two new babies. They are so lucky to be getting you for their new Mommy. I wish you a weekend filled with lots of sunshine and happiness...m..

Cheryl said...

Here is a poem written by Ken D. Conover--- he has written this as a "message from your pet" I lost my orange tabby, Zacky... and this poem brought me a tad of comfort-- hey, any you can get right? lol
BIG HUG
~Cheryl

To have loved and then said farewell is better than to have never loved at all.
For all of the times that you stooped and touched my head, fed me my favorite treat and
returned the love that I so unconditionally gave to you. For the care that you gave to me
so unselfishly. For all of these things I am grateful and thankful. I ask that you grieve
not for the loss but rejoice in the fact that we lived, loved and touched each other's lives.
My life was fuller because you were there, not as owner, but as my friend. Today, I am
as I was in my youth. The grass is always green, butterflies flit among fthe flowers and
the sun shines gently down upon all of God's creatures. I can run, jump and play
and do all of the things that I did in my youth. There is no sickness, no aching joints
and no regrets and no aging. We await the arrival of our lifelong companions and know
that togetherness is forever. You live in our hearts as we do in yours. Companions such
as you are very rare and unique. Don't hold the love that you have within yourself.
Give it to another like me and then I will live forever. For love never really dies,
and you are loved and missed as surely as we are.

Your pet in heaven.

oH No how sad for you to have lost another sweet baby this year. My heart goes out to you in your sorrow. I am sending a huge hug to you. I know your new babies will help to ease the hole you have in your heart but not right now.. but soon enough. It will take time. But you are a sweet one to take both kittens on at the same time. They are adorable.
I just wanted to post and let you know surprises are coming to you in the mail :)

I am sorry for your loose of Marmalade, he sure is a pretty cat. He reminds me of my Potsie, he went to the bridge 21 years ago, but I still miss him. We can put our mind at ease knowing they are whole again.

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

I came by to see how you were doing...I'm so sorry to see the sad news.about your precious Marmalade....Those adorable pictures brought tears to my eyes. My heart aches for you. Our fur babies touch our hearts like no other (human). They are our solace and joy, they bring comfort to every need when we need it most. Their loss is great.
I hope you find comfort and healing from your new babies and from the treasured memories of Marmalade.
