    It's been over a month since I lost my precious, Lady G. The pain I feel from losing her, is as strong as it was the day I lost her. I am constantly thinking of my sweet, little girl. Still crying multiple times a day. I've never cried this much in my entire life! Even though I miss her like crazy, it's still hard for me to believe she's gone. I knew it was going to be extremely difficult on me to ever lose her, and it certainly has. This has been one of the most difficult losses in my life. I lost my dear mother years ago due to health issues, and that was very difficult for me as well.

    I lost my sweet Lady G. in the early morning hours of January 14, 2019. I was away when she was killed outside, behind my house. I was told there were two large lab dogs around her, when she was found. I've had her for about 12 years, and man, this is killing me. She brought so much love and happiness into my life. She was such an awesome, loving little friend / family member. I couldn't do anything outside without her by my side. If she was off somewhere and heard me outside, she'd come running to me. We were best friends. She was an inside / outside cat. But she loved it outside, and I allowed her to be free, as a cat should be. She knew she was loved dearly. And I know she loved me too. I took good care of her. She was happy and full of life till the very end. She still loved to play and climb trees. Her and I had a lot of fun together. She always made me smile. She even made me cry at times, by simply looking at her, as I felt so incredibly blessed to have her in my life. She was so beautiful and awesome! My life will truly never be the same without her. She was that special to me.

    I miss that cute little dance she'd do at feeding time. She would always shake her tail when she was about to get fed, or simply when she was excited. I've never seen anything like it. It was so cute!

    I miss those days and nights she slept by my side, hogging up the bed with her feet all over me.

    I miss those crazy sharp claws digging into my legs, while she laid in my lap.

    I miss her getting up on this desk and laying all over my keyboard and mouse cord, getting all in the way. She demanded attention, and I was happy to give it to her.

    I miss talking to her. I talked to her all the time. She would even meow back in response. We may not have understood what each other were saying, but we always had each other to talk to.

    I miss calling her all those nicknames I called her

    I miss playing with her.

    I miss holding her.

    I simply miss everything about her. She was truly a special cat.

    I thank the man above for blessing me with her in my life these past 12 years or so. She always put a smile on my face. When I was down, she was there to cheer me up. When I was sick, she knew it, and stayed by my side. I will never forget that. I love animals, and this cat meant the world to me. I will never forget her. I am heartbroken, and miss her dearly! God, I miss her so much!

    Please, you all give your pets a hug and kiss for me. They truly are our best friends.

    A few more photos of her in the gallery below.

    RIP Lady G.
    2007 - January 14, 2019
    I love you and miss you dearly! I will never forget you, girl!

    Rest you gentle, Lady G., dream you deep. Your pawprints are on someone's heart forever.

    What a lovely girl she was, is, and will always be! I know how desperately you miss her physical presence, but this is what I know...love does not die, it simply changes form and continues on, still Love. And Love abides, always and forever, Love abides. Unseen, but sometimes felt in the quiet moments, that Love is with you still. Love abides.

    Thank you very much for the kind words, Furballsmom.

    Thank you very much for the kind words, Mamanyt1953.

    Not only was it a blessing, but also an honor, having Lady G. in my life. She will always be dearly loved, and carried in my heart. Good gracious, I miss her like crazy!

    Again, thank you two very much. And thank you for allowing me to post this tribute to her. I want EVERYONE to know just how much I love her, and how much she meant to me. For all she has given me, I at least owe her that.

    She was absolutely gorgeous.
    It hurts..... it hurts more then we can even comprehend when we lose a precious family member. And it will keep on hurting for a long time. Time is the only thing that dulls the pain, that makes it bearable to live with. Just take one day at a time until you find yourself in a place that you can live with.
    She was outside, doing what she loved so much. My Casper was the same way, we tried to keep him safe inside, but his spirit would not hear of it, he rebelled and fought against it for a year, until we let him do what he wanted to do once again, and he died happy, doing what he loved.
    You shared your life for 12 years with that little girl, the bond of love you formed with her spirit will last an eternity. Love is spiritual, so eternal, "Death cannot take that which never dies" and you know your love for her never will. Because she loves you so much, and is now living on through you, she would never want you to be so sad for overlong, she needs to know you will find joy in living once more so she can rest in peace. Just as you would have wanted for her if you were the first to go. She will forever be as close as your thoughts and prayers, ask her for guidance, for comfort, and she will gladly give it.
    Death always teaches a powerful lesson.... live each and every day to it's fullest, love hard, live hard, none of us are guaranteed a tomorrow. There will always come a day when we ourselves are mourned and we need to have love in our lives to see that someone does. To be remembered with good memories, with love, is priceless. Loving your little girl and remembering all that you put in your beautiful tribute is a treasured gift to her, and she thanks you for it.
    Try to find some good in this senseless tragedy to help you feel a little better about yourself. A few times a year I pay for the adpotion of a cat at my local shelter. I have done this for going on seven years now, and if it makes an adoption go easier for someone in need, to bring about love for one who so desperately needs it, it is a good thing. And I do it all in my little girl's name. You can donate your time to socialize kittens too, it all helps so very much and is good for the soul.
    Try not to dwell on her death. I know how impossible this is to do, I know I can never forget what I witnessed on that horrible day, but it will rule your mind, your life, your soul, if you let it. Don't ever let death win by making it more important then that little girl's life. Her life was so much more precious.Let those wonderful memories bring comfort to your broken heart, and one day they will, instead of the pain they give you now. Your heart WILL heal, but it takes a long time, one day at a time......
    My heart goes out to you. I will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers. Take care of yourself, she would want that for the one she loves....RIP beautiful Lady G. You will never be forgotten, you will forever have a secure place in a loving heart. May the good lord bless and keep you, until you meet again!

    Thank you very much. I read them all. Those are great articles.

    Wanted to share a few short videos of my dear Lady G. I know I sound goofy in them, but I talked to her with a goofy voice all the time. I had so much fun with her. She is dearly missed.

    I'm so very sorry, what a sudden, shocking loss for you. Having a loved one taken without warning is truly the heaviest of weights on one's heart.

    Although time does heal, time has a way of being different for everyone. We all process loss at our own pace. I do hope each day is finding you in a better place, secure in knowing you provided Lady G with a wonderful, loving life filled with everything she needed and more.

    Wishing you peace of mind and heart, if not right now, in time :hugs:

    Yes, @+Jeffrey+, you were so blessed to have her in your life, as much as she was blessed to have you in her life.
    You were meant to live together, and the great bond you both had is the proof of this.
    She was the cat of your life, the one-in-a-life cat, the luck that not many people can experience, and those who can, will feel as they had won the richest lottery ever.
    No money in the world would buy such a luck. You were rich indeed!

    RIP Lady G., stay close to your dad.

    Thank you two very much for your support during this difficult time. I truly do appreciate it.

    And you are absolutely right, Antonio65! I am the richest, and luckiest guy in the world, for having Lady G. in my life. No doubt about it! I wish everyone could be this lucky. That sweet, little girl showered me with love, as I did the same for her. She had me wrapped around her little paw from the very start. :biggrin:

    And this is for you, Lady G.



    I love you, punkin! For as long as I walk this earth, I will carry you in my heart. You will NEVER be forgotten! I love you! I love you! I love you! Oh my goodness, I love you so much!

    Two months ago today, my dear Lady G. was taken from me. These past two months have been filled with incredible sadness without my little girl. I am going about my daily life, functioning, but the pain is still very much there. I have smiled a few times the last couple of days or so, thinking of her, So that's good, I guess. We had such a wonderful life together. A life full of love, and precious memories, which I promise you, I will never forget. Lady G. was an angel.

    Here are a few more memories of that precious, little girl. I just randomly picked a few. Wish I could post them all! LOL

    I love you, Punkin! Missing you like crazy!

    You lost a precious jewel, no doubt.

    It sounds like you are living in the same deep and excruciating pain I am.
    Today has been particularly hard for me and it's nearly 24 months for my sweet Lola, and 7 months for my beloved Pallina.
    It seems that time passing isn't helping me at all.
    Hopefully you'll be feeling better soon. I know that Lady G. would like you to be happy again. She might even send you a new kitty to help you heal.
    A month ago I found a sick and old kitty who needed all my attentions, and though she wasn't any of my previous cats, I felt alive and useful again, I could devote to a living being again, but it only lasted a few days. I suffered again, but it was worth it. And I know she was sent to me by my previous cats, I am sure of it.

    Take care!

    Thanks again, Antonio. It's a difficult thing to go through, and I've been through it a few times in my life. And as I've said before; losing a loved one is never easy, but some do hurt us more than others, and take us a little more time to heal.

    I hope you get to feeling at least a little better soon. Wishing you all the best, my friend. You hang in there.
