We are deeply devasted

This is a very sad day for my family and me, and everyone that Lisa has touched.

The doctor has just informed us that she passed away.  She had acute leukemia.

I’m totally devastated and not sure how I will get through this and how to tell my teenage daughter about this.

Thank you all for your support,

    even if we allways were/are surrounded by many cats, the loss of one affects us so much.
    24 days ago our dear Prince passed away. he went under a car, but succeeded in a miraculous way drag himself home.
    he layed under the pouring rain all night, waiting for us to find him.
    I try to dry him, I try to warm him, I took him to the

    It touched us so much,realizing that he wanted to come home, to not worry us, thinking were he could have disapeared.
    Prince is burried in our garden together with all other catfriends we have had.
    I will make a pray for your Lisa, dear Ivy.
    a big hug to you and all you family.

  30. I’m very sorry to hear about Lisa. It’s always really tough when a pet passes on, especially for children. I always try to focus on the good times, and the fact that if you remember, they are always still there.

  31. Ivy, again, I’m so, so sorry you all went through this. At least maybe Lisa was spared some pain. She looks like a beauty and a love.

    I am truely sorry.

    Being someone who has lost a “pet” who has touched you as a family member I can honestly say that I know what you’re going through and it does take time to heal, believe me, but soon enough when you think of dear Lisa smiles will replace tears and once that’s happened it’s a great feeling of acceptance and letting go.

    It’s tough but I hope that you can find peace in knowing that Lisa is in a great place and you always will have fond memories to relish.
    Again, I’m a deeply sorry and please give my regaurds to your daughter who I know is especially going through a tough time as well. My thoughts go out to those who knew Lisa.

    Hugs and best wishes,
