My darling moggy, Oxley, is gone. He fought a tough battle to the end. I was so worried about letting him go too early when he still had the will to live, but on Monday night he let us know beyond a shadow of a doubt that he was ready. The next day, he crossed the rainbow bridge surrounded by his loved ones at home. I miss him so, so much. Every little thing reminds me of him. There is so much I'd like to say, but my heart is bursting and it's just too much for me. I'd like to thank the TCS community for being such a great source of support and prayers during his final months.
I'm so sorry for your loss. It's so, so difficult, I know. Praying comfort for you during this time.

It's been 1 1/2 weeks since my sweet Oxley died. We wanted to get away from everything for a while, so we took a short trip to Bali, which is pretty near our country. On the 1 week anniversary since his death, we decided to go some place nice for dinner to celebrate his life and make a toast to him. My nickname for him was "Yama" ( mountain in Japanese), but it means different things in different cultures and languages. There were a few meditative songs playing on a loop in the background at the restaurant we chose, and one of the songs had a phrase that had " Yama" in it and just kept repeating itself over and over again. I know most will take it as mere coincidence, but I chose to take it as a sign that he's watching over us.

Oxley is watching over you wombat, it is a sign of oxley even though its through a song , music is spiritual. I beleive it is oxley as i had numerous signs and sightings myself. Some people say its a coincidence but some things i have experienced are things that i cannot explain. May other members on this site had some experiences which are similar. Take comfort in know ing that oxley loves you and he is an angel in heaven who is around you and is watching you through your grief and is helping you by letting you know that he is around always. :grouphug::catrub::petcat:

My dear moggy, Oxley, passed almost 3 months ago. I think about him everyday. He was such a blessing to our lives. We had a memorial service for him 2 weeks after he passed, and it was a beautiful service. Up till now, I always wait for my mum or sister to come home first before coming home because the house seems so empty.
I've also been missing The Cat Site. You guys were such a great source of support when he was here, and during his illness. The world needs more people like you.

Grief is a difficult process, one that is different for each of us. I understand your moggy's loss and can appreciate what you're going through. :hugs: We're still here whenever you need us, our support is endless and ongoing.:grouphug:

I know that your heart is bursting, it aches, I know that.
My heart aches too, and I feel a lump in my throat every time I read a post of a cat who is gone to a better place.
Your Oxley fought a hard battle, but now he's at peace and can rest till the two of you will meet again.
RIP sweet Oxley, you'll be missed!

Yesterday was my birthday. We went to a restaurant and I was lamenting the fact that my sweet moggy wasn't here to celebrate my birthday with me, and just reminiscing. Halfway through the meal my cousin came to tell me there was a ginger cat (Oxley was a ginger too) at the entrance of the restaurant. Turns out the staff have been feeding her around that time and she comes around that time every night. If my cousin hadn't gone to the entrance for some random reason, we would've missed her. I'd like to think it's Oxley's own way of sending a sign on my birthday to me.
