Kit 2001-9/6/14

Recommended Posts

I let my sweet Kit go yesterday. I can't even gather my thoughts to write anything meaningful about what she meant to me. She had another bowel obstruction. I couldn't put either one of us through that surgery again.


She'd had emergency bowel obstruction surgery less than 3 months ago. I thought I was going to lose her. In fact, I'd made two appointments to have her euthanized following that surgery, but she rallied. But afterward, though her physical state had mostly recovered, she was just not herself mentally--- it was like she'd been lobotomized. She would barely engage. She didn't greet me. She barely interacted or showed any emotion. She was an automaton. I'd hold her by the ruff of her neck and look her in the face and say, "Kit!! are you in there?" And then finally she came back to me. And she was her old self again. And after all that, now this. She's gone and I'm heartbroken. Rest in peace my sweet Kit.

Oh Nancy, it saddens me greatly to read this. I know there's nothing I can really say to make things better for you. Just know that I am wishing you strength to get through this loss and to come to a place where your joyful memories outshine the pain.

I am so sorry to hear about Kit. Our time with them is too short. A friend sent this to me when I lost my Zachary.




Dear Lord, please open your gates and call St. Francis

to come escort this beloved companion

across the Rainbow Bridge


Assign him a place of honour

for he had been a faithful servant

and has always done his best to please me


Bless the hands that sent him to you

for they are doing so in love and compassion

freeing him from pain and suffering


Grant me the strength to not dwell on my loss.

Help me remember the details of his life

with the Love he has shown me

And grant me the courage to honour him

by sharing those memories with others


Let him remember me as well

And let him know that I will always love him


And when it’s my time to pass over into your paradise

please allow him to accompany those who will bring me home


Thank you Lord for the gift of his companionship and for the time we’ve had together


And thank you Lord for granting me the strength to give him to you now.
