      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. Last night was terrible thus morning the slience is awful .. I feel guilt that I made that choice for him. It is with deep sadness that I must say that this afternoon the love of my life my 12 year old Bellagio the Chartreux the apple of my eye, my constant companion. Going out and coming in he was always there to greet me. He woke me each morning by gently meowing at my door so that we could go out into the garden together, He taught me everything I know about love, faithfulness, pleasure, patience honor and grace. When I was impatient with him he forgave quicky, The highlight of his day was always when I finished working around nine and lit the fire and finally he would be able to sit on my lap. The silence is deafening tonight. my Prince has gone over the bridge. I was so honoured to have such a beautiful creature in my life, this house was his he made it a home. When I travelled he made such a fuss on my return he would let me pick him up like a baby to kiss his silky ears, and gaze into his magnificent green eyes. Everyone who ever met him fell in love with him, he loved everyone and was so playful and gentle. I found him in Bellagio on Lake Como in Italy when he was a tiny silvergrey kitten with azure blue eyes. He blessed my home with his beauty. Im lucky he was at home in my arms when the executioner came. There was no cage, no sterile vets rooms with strangers and fear. He lay on the table at home wrapped in his favourite blanket I wanted him to be warm. I stroked his minksoft coat and silky ears for the last time. I was fortunate to have a garden to bury him in among my roses, I dug his grave through streams of sobbing tears digging through rocks and roots and laid him to rest wrapped in soft white shroud with white tulips and a lotus flower at his head. When I had covered the grave with many stones I lit candles to stay on the grave through the night. There under a star filled sky on a cold January night I stood Under the cherry tree I planted 8 years ago that he watched grow to 25 feet. He inhabited never corner of the garden it was his. I dont think the garden or my home will ever be the same again. I said goodbye to my Prince and felt the silence so acutely. Without his chirps and meows. He was my north, my south, my evening sky. My heart is broken
  2. Lost my favorite cat, Nova

    Our cat Nova was 16 yrs old. The longest we had ever had a cat. We just found out this morning that she passed away overnight while being treated at the Vets. She was in there because she stopped eating/ drinking on Tuesday Dec 23rd. She had an ultrasound etc to see what the problem was and due to the holidays it took some time to have someone do the ultrasound and then someone else read the results. Anyway, long story short, the call we were hoping to get from the vet this morning telling us we could pick her up, turned out to be a call saying she had passed away overnight. I had not seen her since Tuesday morning. I feel horrible thinking she was by herself when she died, at the vets, where she hated going. As most animals do. They were closed since Christmas Eve day ( half day) and did not open again till today. I cannot imagine not having her sleep at the foot of my bed every night, or greet me at the door everyday after work. Geez. It really sucks. I can't stop crying. People don't understand how hard it is. Except anyone reading this as you have all gone through something similar. I'm very sorry for each and every one of your losses. I truly understand. I can't imagine a life without her right now.
