BABY CAKES N. May 15 1988-March 23, 2007

We went to the vets, and I back came home, OUR home, alone. This post is dedicated, with tears, to my Baby Cakes. My best friend since 1988. He looked up at me while I was kissing his forehead, and he purred. HE PURRED. And then he was gone. Everybody told me I did the right thing, but..but....this is so tough. I came home alone, but he'll always be in my heart, alive, forever.

Thanks everyone. I am so sad....he was always there for me. When his brother passed in 2002, he was the one to jump onto my bed and lick my tears away, saying "I'm here Daddy." And he always was. Now he's in heaven, playing with his brother. His bowl is here, his litter box......and me, his Dad..forever. Baby Cakes, thank you. Thank you...you died in my arms, but you will live in my heart. Always.
I don't know what to do.......

Peter, that just sucks...I lost two of my buddies last summer, and it was really hard. Take care and know we're thinking about you!

Hello Peter,

I'm so sorry about your cat. My mom had to put down her dog, Samuel Adams, a few months ago and it was very hard. My thoughts are with you.

Thank you everyone. I had a real tough night last night and it hurts so much right now.

I'm terribly sorry about your loss, Peter. I'm a cat person myself, and losing a beloved pet is always a traumatic event.

Hang in there, buddy.

Thanks Q! I was just over at your blog too.
After so many years, I'll miss him so much. I hope I'll be better with each passing day. And I hear that a strangely-named baseball team starts playing next Monday. I think I'll check 'em out. The Red something or other? It's a dumb sounding name.
And of course, I jest. Anything to get my mind away from my tears! 'cause it hurts!
Hey, thank you for your kind words. And enjoy this nice looking Saturday, too. Always! Peter

Aww Peter, I'm so sorry to hear this. I have lost 2 cats myself and I know how you're feeling right now. Thinking about how happy he is to be with his brother again might help you get through it, a little bit at least.

Laura, thank you so much, and yes, I'm hurting. It helps when the sun is out instead of the darkened starry skys. Usually so beautiful, but right now, to me (and only me), the night sky and the lack of daylight is truly frightening...maybe even haunting.

I appreciate your thoughts..................always! Peter..and hi to all of my great readers. I'm a lucky guy....

I'm so so so sorry for you. It must be really hard to lose Baby Cakes. Hang in there though.

Thanks Katiee...you are so sweet. As has been everyone! I'm a lucky guy.

Thank you Kristen. I'm so lucky to have friends like you! You made me smile.

Peter, I'm so sorry for your loss.
And I'm sorry I wasn't here sooner.
