Doris, I am so very sorry to read this. I did go to Amazing Animals Lover's blog. You are the gentle, caring soul that I knew you were ... taking in Middi and giving her life. I am sorry for this loss and also thankful that you gave her love. May the blessings that you give to others come back to you abundantly.

Doris, how shocking and unexpected and very sad. You were good to Middi and she had two good years with you before she died. That was two years she wouldn't have had if you hadn't rescued her. Poor Middi.

I hope you are okay.

Oh, Doris, I am so very sorry to hear about Middi! Over the years, we lost a couple of cats that way, to bobcats and to coyotes in New Mexico, and it's so sudden, such a shock and so very sad! I'm sending you a big hug and hope that Gizzy is a great comfort to you!! Much love, Silke

Linda in New Mexico said...

Doris: Please accept my heartfelt condolensences on the loss of Middi. I just had to say goodbye to my St. Bernard baby in March and I do feel your pain. Willow was young as well and had not lived all her life when she crossed over the bridge. She did love cats...so perhaps she and Middi have already met and are there together enjoying each others company, waiting for us. Those gentle souls are at rest and peaceful, it is we, the ones remaining that are in pain. I wish I could hug you right now. Hold tight to her memory. Much love, Linda

Oh Doris, I am so very sorry to hear this.. but I have no doubt her years with you were good ones. God led her to your door, those 3 years ago, for that very reason, I'm sure! ((Love -n- Hugs)) ~tina

So sorry to hear of your loss. What a beautiful cat and you gave her lots of lots of love!

I linked to you from Deborah @ Amazing Animal Lovers Blog.

I am so sorry to hear about your kitty. I lost a cat about 1 1/2 years ago and it still hurts when I think about him. I had him for 13 years and it just wasn't enough.

I'm sure you gave Middi a wonderful life. I hope that thought helps ease the pain you feel from losing her.

Sandy said...

Oh Doris, I am so sorry about your loss. I'm glad you got to spend the time with Middi that you did. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Wish I could come give you a big hug... a cyber hug will have to do. Take care my friend.

Doris, my friend, I'm so sorry to hear this. I feel you're pain, It's been about a year and 1/2 since we lost Simba. But I know they are both over on the other side of Rainbow bridge waiting for us. Maybe they'll even meet and become friends.

Keeping you in my prayers as you deal with the loss.

Sandy

Oh Doris -- GREAT BIG COMFORTING HUGS coming your way over the Internet.

Janine said...

Dear Doris, I really feel with you.
I have too old cats and I fear the day, when they will cross , as you said, the rainbow- bridge.
In the end it doesn´t make a lot of difference if a friend has two legs or four.

Hi, I read about Middi on Amazing Animal Lovers and just came by to pay my respects. If it wasn't for you, her whole life would have been awful, so you were her angel in the end, isn't that wonderful, how God works? She was able to pass with a loving and trusted caretaker. I read your profile, and was just amazed at how much we have in common. My daughter-in-law was a pharmacy tech. We love many of the same movies, including Johnny Depp, who I just saw on Letterman last night. He owns a whole island. I am a deacon in our church, and have a couple bible dictionaries, which I love. I love figure skating and nature shows, and have lots of Sting C.D.'s. I love his song "Fragile". My husband is a chess instructor and plays accordian in church. And I've been to two balloon hot -air festivals and love them! I will be doing a few posts on them in the future. I love your blog. In looking through, you do such a good job and have great pictures!

Oh no! And Middi looks just like my Sable, who I lost on Feb. 2. My heart goes out to you, it's so difficult to say goodbye to a beloved pet.

I Wonder Wye said...

Oh, I AM SO SORRY to hear this sad news! Having lost our Scat-cat a few weeks ago, I feel your pain. Middi was gorgeous...you are in my thoughts...

Good Morning Sweetness....
I am so sorry to hear about your Beloved Middi. I am sure she happily watches over you and Giz from Summerland. It is never easy when we lose our furbabes this I know, but she will be there to meet you and Giz when you cross over of that I am sure. So you will see her again someday.
My thoughts, prayers and love are with you at this time and I will light a candle for you and your fur family today.
All My Love!
