    Thank you all so much for being so good and kind and caring to me. I am holding all your messages in my heart.

    I feel really sick, scared, dazed and heartsore. I am dreading this afternoon.

    Knowing your wonderful spirits will be with me is giving me strength now and will be an indescribably precious comfort to me when the time comes; I won't feel so desperately alone. Thank you all again for making a space in your wonderful hearts for my beautiful girl.

    Mogs - Today will be very difficult, but candles will be lit and prayers will be said across the world for you and Saoirse this afternoon
    I hope you will be able to feel the strength of our love for you two and that will give you physical strength
    The universe will celebrate the life of sweet Saoirse as she is laid to rest

    I'm beyond grateful to all of you for lending me your strength.

    I've got the card ready for her flowers. I've also got a scroll with a message from her Mama and the little muslin pouches - one with a lock of my hair and one filled with her favourite catnip - to place in her little basket.

    Thank you all for holding my hand ... so thankful not to be doing this all alone.

    I never knew what a heart kitty was until my son brought home his kitty from college. She has chosen me as her "person" and whenever we are separated my heart bears the emptiness. (Thankfully he has chosen a life path that will not take Raven away from me until next year)

    I can't even begin to comprehend the agony of what you are bearing. I've shed more tears for you than you know. Please feel the hugs and care.

    I just love this song, and Van Morrison. Mogs, in the days to come you could perhaps build up a little album of love songs that resonate especially to how you feel about Saoirse... How beautiful would that be...

    Thinking of you...

    I only visit FDMB sporadically lately, but for some reason it crossed my mind to do so today. You and Saoirse have been lovely friends to me and mine and so many others here. I'm sending love from me and my fur-freaks and am glad I can be part of the candle cermony, though so heartbroken at the news.

    Mogs,

    This is certainly one of the saddest events of your life.

    I went through this kind of events one year ago when I lost my dog, Anoushka.
    I have spent more than 10 years with her, she was always with me, she was always here for me, during my holidays, during all my relocations around the words, during my divorce, during the day-to-day routine. She saved my life when my ex-husband wanted to beat me.
    She crossed the bridge on December , 8th 2015.
    Now, nearly one year after, I can still hear her walking on the parquet during the night.
    Every time I seat in my car, I can see her in the interior mirror.

    When I had to take the most difficult decision of my life, I was unable to speak to anybody for more than 4 months.

    I am on this board because of the diabetes of my cat, but when I had to choose a photo for my profile, I had to find a photo where both my cat AND my beloved dog were together.

    Today, I continue to cry when I think of her.

    All that being said, everybody build a unique relation with its pet.

    Nobody can understand how you feal now. Nobody can understand your loss.

    But please be sure that here, everybody is supporting you in that terrible moment.

    @Capoo -

    ((((((((Sophie))))))))

    Just a quick note to let you know I've read your post and to say how very sorry I am to hear about what you have been through.

    I'm sorry I can't write more just at the moment but I'm absolutely wiped out after yesterday and have to rest a bit before I can write properly to you. I just couldn't leave it till later to let you know that I am thinking of you and that you're in my thoughts and my heart.

    I'd like that very much, Diana. I know from sad experience that this is only the beginning ... :( I'd be beyond grateful for company. I'm dreading the protective numbness wearing off.

    We understand, Mogs. It's so tough. If it would help, we will start a PM conversation with you any time... How do you feel about maybe one conversation with a group of us so it would be like a circle of friends? ie as opposed to lots of separate PMs with individuals? Or both of course, one doesn't preclude the other. Think about it, and if a group, who you would like to include - those of us here in the UK who you have already chatted with, eg Eliz, Marlena and myself - plus anyone else you are close to? It doesn't have to be a group of course. Have a think and you could either start a PM yourself, or let me know who you'd like to include and I'll start it... No rush, just whenever you feel up to it...

    Oh, that would be such a wonderful blessing!

    It would be nice if it was a circle. Grieving is a very hard thing for the bereaved and it's also not at all easy for those seeking to help them through it. Also, as is often the case here, when one is worried about one's own little ones one needs to balance one's own worries and fears against the wish to help another in distress. (The former must always come first; I've had my own battles with anticipatory grief and I would not wish that on anyone.)

    With a circle I'd maybe have a little Haven of Understanding and a little company - even just to say, "Hello!" and hear a comforting word from a friendly voice - but hopefully without being burdensome to anyone. Maybe if you'd be so kind as to start the Conversation, Diana, then perhaps anyone who'd like to join could PM you to be added to the circle? Open to other suggestions.

    I wish I could convey to all of you how much you mean to me, and how deeply I appreciate you all.

    :bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug:



    (PS: If anyone feels like sending an individual PM, those would be more than welcome, too! :bighug::bighug::bighug:)
