      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

  1. Saw you just posted recently and thinking of you especially today. "Anniversaries" we not a big deal to me until I lost our sweet cat and now it seems I notice every landmark. :( I wanted to acknowledge Rex, I am sure he was loved so much!!

  2. My heart is gone

    Hey sweetie , I would like to say how deeply sorry I am for your loss ......I truly understand your deepest feelings for your fur baby just as much as I felt for my cat that passed away three months ago that will be tomorrow on the 22nd . Let me say that time only heals the hurt and the wounded.....what you're feeling is truly understandable and acceptable as I know it cause you are not alone my friend.... you have every right to grieve the way you need to get by by each day just like the rest of us on this site!!! I promise you that this too shall pass with each and every day that you wake up without your fur baby.....it will be difficult at times, but you will get better and stronger. Knowing your fur baby is now at peace without pain and agony and up there with my Rex as well as the other fur angels will get you through the days when you feel so hopeless, even though our babies aren't here with us physically, I truly believe they are with us spiritually when we least expect them to be......God has a beautiful way to show through the most unique and unusual ways that I can't explain, but you will definitely see one day.....please take care of yourself as well as your children....be strong and I will be praying for your strength. If you need to let out pain and anger, I...we ...will be right here if needed to be ....for you!!! That's for sure!!! Hang in there my friend , give yourself some time to heal....it will get better before you know it.
  3. My Cat Munchkin

    No you're not a basket case!!!!! You just grieve differently from others, whether some grieve lightly or some grieve hard!!! It's okay to cry or to miss your baby whenever You feel like it no matter what other people say!!!! Please don't let it get to the point you're not taking care of yourself or home.....or to the point you can't get out of the bed.....please go see someone who can help you get through your pain cause you need to know you're not alone in this!!!! I miss my Rex so much that it pains me just to see his food bowls still there untouched in two months after his death... I wish I can be there with you to hold you up and wipe away your tears and to say that it will be all right!!! Munchkin and Rex are no longer in pain and they.... along with the other precious pets are with God right now !!!! Free from hurt, free from pain, forever young playfully like kittens and pups over the Rainbow Heaven!!! Even though Rex is not here in the presence....he sure is definitely in my heart and soul as we speak knowing my baby isn't hurting from cancer anymore. Your Munchkin is surely definitely in your heart and soul too!! You're not ready to accept that yet.... but you will in due time... please continue to pray and see about yourself too sweetie!!! I will pray for you as well ......love and hugs to you my friend.

    Amen Mrs. KayC!!!!! Well done !!!!! Beautiful!!!!
  5. My Cat Munchkin

    My dear friend, let me say how sorry I am for your loss..... I fully and truly understand your pain. Please know, that I know it's okay to cry as much as you can, this furbaby was your family member ....plain and simple! People who don't have pets don't usually understand that no matter what pet you have....they are truly a part of your family and your life too!!!! I've been there where you are a month ago, my God!!! I thought I couldn't get myself together!!!! I felt I couldn't breathe, I had sleepless nights, I've cried day and night cause a part of me that took care of this beautiful creature for 16 years would no longer be there for me when I was lonely, greeting me at door when I get home from work, cuddle next to me when I watched tv, and so forth anymore. Words just can't describe it , but I definitely know what you are going through right now. First thing first, please talk to God who truly understands what you're feeling....no judgement or anything!!! Secondly, cry......let it all out as much as you can sweetie!! Pray!!!! Pray!!!!Pray!!!Pray!!! That really helps a lot!! Thirdly, talk to us here when you need a friend or see that you're not the only person hurting!!! This site here is a God send!!!!! These guys here are awesome people that I can relate to and feel comfortable to communicate to about my grief!!! I am here also for you too!! Take a moment to realize that your furbaby loved you cause you gave that precious thing all that you could have give, I commend you for showing love to God's creatures and you will be bless for that!!! I will pray for your strength and the will to move on my friend.....you are going to be all right!!! Time will heal the hurt and pain eventually, but you will get better each day.....I still am. Take care!!!!!

  8. Feeling sad again

    Good morning my friend, I still feel what you're going through still.....I'm praying for your strength each day and I assure you, it will get better soon:-). As for your other baby Lucky, animals grieve like us too, just continue to give your fur baby as much love as you can . Only time will tell for you all of you, we had our baby cremated too and I'm glad we've made that decision cause he will continue to be with us even though no matter what.... I miss him terribly!!!!! Continue to pray and be strong my friend, take one day at a time. The sun will shine again!
  9. Feel so lost

    What a beautiful fur baby angel!!!! Please let me say how sorry I am for your loss....trust and believe I know what you guys are going through!!! Our Rex was 16 when we put him down peacefully on June 22, 2017 and he had the same symptoms as your beautiful baby had, but know this my friend.....we have no knowledge or control on what or how our babies have suffered, just know you guys have done the best as you could've done to love and provide for your baby....such a true blessing you guys were as well!!!! Kudos to you both!!!!!!! You are free to post whatever you want to post about your cat son, no matter how long !!! I feel exactly what you feel, please pray and cry whenever you feel like to make your heart and day a little better. Just know you are not alone when it comes to grieving your boy, I miss my boy too.....I will be praying you guys, please take care!!!!
  10. I totally agree with the both of you guys!!!! I rather be around animals than people too!!! You wouldn't have to deal with"people" issues that we're dealing with today!!!!
  11. Simply beautiful!!!!!
  12. My dear sweet friend, girl.... I definitely,truly understand what exactly you're going through right now!!!!! It's been a month and a half on the 22nd that my cat/son passed away of cancer at the age of 16 years old....same age as your baby on June 22, 2017. I felt and still feel those devastating feelings when I put our baby down, but rest assured my friend .....that you and I myself did the most greatest, humanly, lovable act known to mankind to put our precious and innocent babies to a peaceful journey of rest. Yes, I wanted to keep Rex here ,but to see him slowly declining and dying before our eyes was enough for me and his sister-my daughter to let him go. There were times like yourself I cried many times a night and days that I felt so empty without my boy!!! But I can tell you dear that you and your fiancé are going to get through this !!! This I promise you....didn't say that it will be easy cause it's not, but you will get through by praying and talking to people like us here to keep your heads afloat :-). Please , if you may...to mourn for your baby, cry for your baby, keep memories going on about your baby, ...as much as you can allow ,cause this will help you during your time of bereavement . You will get better and you will get back to what you've been doing even though it's empty....knowing your baby and my baby are up there over the "rainbow bridge" no more in pain and suffering and they are just frolicking with the other fur babies with their heavenly wings do what they all do best......being "angels". I am here if you need to talk to when times are hard for you guys...be strong my friend....you're not alone. God bless you and your fiancé !!!!My fur baby....Rex!!!!!
  13. Coping with a missing sick cat

    Hey my friend, oh how my heart aches for you as well your cat.....you're not being dramatic, you're just missing your baby. I had situation years ago about a feral cat I took care of for years suddenly disappeared and was never seen again. I believe in my heart that animals like your baby has an instinct to leave when they feel their "time" is near, just know and pray that God has control of everything and that He is looking out and taking care of your baby. You've done a tremendous job for being a cat parent and going out your way to be the best caregiver you can be for God's creatures!!!! I applaud your unselfish love and I pray for your strength and encouragement to continue on in life....I'm here if you need an outlet to talk to about anything!!! We all here have some common things together: bereavement, passion for animals, and unselfish love for animals and humankind!!! Stay strong my dear friend!!!!
  14. This lady here is a God send !!!! An eloquent, blessed,humbled -spirited ,sweet ,down to earth, and a woman of God !! Words cannot expressed how you are blessing total strangers with your unconditional words of comfort and wisdom!!!! Thank you ma'am for that!!! You are so awesome !!! Even through your own pain you managed to look out for others who are in pain as well, kudos to you!!! This world needs more people like you !!! 

  15. I lost my baby

    As a "cat mama" like you, I would like to say how sorry I am for your loss of that gorgeous fur baby!!!! I really understand your pain cause I miss my baby too!!! I loss my baby due to cancer too (cancer sucks!!!) and it took a toll on his health as well. Please know that you don't have to cry by yourself, I will cry with you.....you and I ,as well as other angel parents will get through this one way or another.
