    oh dyana. I am so sorry.

    Whenever I read your posts I was amazed by the care and love you showed him. You truly had a great bond and I can't believe he has passed on. You couldn't have done more for him and he died at home knowing that he was truly loved.

    Did he have a favourite blanket that you could wrap him up him?

    Oh, Dyana. I have tears falling onto my keyboard. For you. For J.D.

    Such devotion to your boy. Such devotion from him to you. I just don't have the words to share my shock, my hearthurt and how much I wish I could just give you such a huge, big, I-understand hug.

    He will always be a part of LL. He will always be a part of you. And he's taking one big, chunk of your heart with him on his journey. And that hurts so much.

    Light for healing for you Dyana. And tears, just tears.

    Safe journey Mr. J.D., a grand gentleman cat.

    (((((Dyana & Ginger))))) I am so sorry for your loss. J.D. was one of the first condos I ever saw on FDMB, and his story of how you found him and brought him across the country from California was then and still is truly amazing to me! You certainly have been an exemplary caregiver, I am sure JD appreciated and reveled in all of your love and attention. You and Ginger will be in my thoughts and prayers! :YMHUG: :YMHUG:

    when you're ready, how about calling a friend to come over? does your vet have an answering service? you could ask them to have your vet call you. if not, maybe call the ER you've taken JD to before?

    i'm so sad for you...

Call a friend to be with you when you are ready. Lean on someone else for a change. Prayers and hugs to you.

    Dear ((((Dyana)))),

    J.D.loved you so much that he wanted to spare you a long farewell. He knew that it was his time to begin a new journey. Please lean on your LL family in this time of grief.

His star is shining brightly in the heavens tonight. He is soaring high on his beautiful new golden wings. His many dear old friends are welcoming him to the Bridge.

    Fly free, J.D. And send your mamabean a sign that you have arrived safely. wings_cat You are much loved.

    In deepest sympathy and with love,

    Ella & Edward, Rusty, and Stu (GA)

    We are lighting Stu's candle tonight in memory of your boy. Hug Ginger and remember all the good times.

    Oh so sorry Dyana... There are so many of ours who are waiting for him at the Bridge to show him where to run and chase butterflies. Gosh... he had 20 long years of your love. That's amazing. I know your heart is breaking. I am crying with you. I just love his birthday video!

    Please know that I am praying for peace and comfort to come to you through your memories of him - especially of him in his Christmas outfit.

J.D. couldn't have asked for one better. He lived such a full life with so much love. I'm so sorry, not only that he had to go, but that you had to find him by surprise. Know we're all grieving with you.

    Oh Dyana,
    I had to read least three time the heading of your post till my brain was able to process it.
    I always enjoyed to read your posts and I was amazed by your dedication, care and most of all your unconditional love to him. The bond between two of you un – describable. I just can’t stop crying, I wish I know you in person and able to stay with you, I know a little how you feel,
    (I lost a brother and sister, a month a part like this last year, they were three years old. They had a breakfast, were happy playful and found them in their bed “sleeping’ 4 hours later. )
    Million Hugs for you.

    Oh, no. I'm so sorry Dyana. He was such a sweet and handsome kitty who loved you so much. He had a beautiful start in life when you found him the hills of California. What a lucky boy he was to have lived his life with you. (((Dyana)))

    You asked for help... I hope you won't think I'm being heartless but when something similar happened to me, this is what I did (because the vet was closed.)

    I placed my Kayte on a pillow just like you did for J.D. Then I gently brushed her lovely fur and arranged her in a comfortable way so she seemed peaceful and asleep. I also cut a bit of her long fur to save and keep close to me. After I hugged her and rested my head on her sweet face, I wrapped her in a pretty towel and kept her cool on our screen porch. I stayed with her for hours, coming in only to warm up when needed. The next day it was time to take her to my vet. But I was glad I had that night to grieve and hold her as long as I wanted.

    Perhaps you can do something similar. Crying and letting the tears fall on J.D. is ok. He will carry those tears of love with him forever.

    My heart is with you tonight, Sweet Dyana. ♥

    I am so, so sorry for your loss. I am crying too. Your devotion to J.D. has always inspired me so much. I hope you find peace in knowing that you gave him all the love and compassion in the world. He had the best mama a kitty could ask for. I can't imagine how you must feel, and I wish I could be there in person to offer some help. You are in my thoughts, and I am sending lots of love and comfort your way.

    Dear Dyana,
    I can't make it hurt less, though I would give anything to be able to do so.

    In my years on the board, I have never seen a kitty or a caregiver fight so hard and fight so well, for just one more day together.

    I saw your condo from this morning before seeing this. With all of my heart, I hope that you can hold on to this memory as you try to deal with your overwhelming loss...

    May you always remember your dear boy as bright and beautiful.

    Hugs my friend,

    Carl

    My friend Dyana I am so so sorry to read this!!
    I know how bad you feel. You and JD have been an
    Inspiration to all of us on FDMB and your devotion to him
    Was incredible. You had him for 20 loving years and he was
    Loved every day of those years by you!
    You did absolutely everything possible to keep him
    Going all these years so please have no regrets!
    Our babies are so special having so many special needs.
    And we stay committed to them gladly for their Love.

    But one day, that wretched day comes when their little
    Bodies can't take anymore and they choose to leave us!
    It's the day they decide to let go and be free.
    It hurts so much our hearts are so broken
    But they find the peace they so need. We all love you & feel your pain!!
    Love you Dyana. Love you JD. Fly Free And Land Softly. From Roni & Moonie(GA)

    When my Donny passed, I kept him with me for several days before driving him to the crematorium. Butthead was taken away immediately after, and it didn't feel right. It bothered me for a long time. I say take as long as you need to spend time with J.D., pet him, talk to him. It helped me tremendously, though needless to say, it still hurt like hell to leave him behind :cry:

    deb called me last night to tell me...... I did not post then cause I could think of no comforting words. I thought surly something will come to me in my dreams.
    nope, I can find no words to comfort or take away or ease your pain.

    You were the absolute best momma to JD. the love you and he had for each other was truly amazing. there is nothing you did not do for your boy.

    seems as though he returned that gift of love by waiting til you were gone. that is how strong that bond of love was. he did not want to see you hurting.

    take all the time you need to be with him

    hugs my friend. holding you tight.

    I've been away from the computer most of the day and evening, and I when I checked my email I saw a post from Chris about J.D. I'm still in shock. We all thought he would be here forever - your care of him was so complete and selfless. I can't imagine the pain you are going through. I wish there was more we can do for you, but know you are in our prayers and we are all shedding tears tonight for your sweet boy. I hope there is someone there with you and Ginger, who must be so confused. :YMHUG: :YMHUG: :YMHUG: :YMHUG: :YMHUG: :YMHUG: :YMHUG:

    I will always carry the picture in my head and heart of your handsome boy, in his harness, going for a walk. What a special relationship you had.

    I guess that's right, Dian. I haven't cried so many tears in forever, since my soul mate horse passed 20 years ago.
    Ginger and I took a walk outside a little while ago. She is acting indifferent. I wish she would be more loving and affectionate at this time, but she is not.

    I keep petting him, because his fur is so soft. I wish I didn't have to stop petting him :(

    Dyana, the crematory often offers a variety of remembrance services. Cast paw prints, ink paw prints, etc. My guys were all returned in beautiful urns with plaques, a framed ink paw print, and a lock of fur. Call around and see what is offered and choose what you want. (I also sent something with each of my guys. With Spike, a piece of pizza. With Annie, her favorite sprarkle ball. Bud took his favorite stuffy on his journey. I sent tufts of Polly fur with Charley as he loved her so.)

    My heart goes out to you. And Ginger.

    The crematorium I used didn't do any of that :sad: ... though they did save fur and whiskers if I asked.

    You can get clay from Michael's or A.C. Moore - it's the same stuff as in the kit - Fimo clay. Knead the bejeebus out of it and make a pancake the size you want. I used two flat plates to sandwich it and make a smooth surface, and it also helps to have a hard surface behind it when you are making the impression. If you're like me, you'll have to make several to get a good one. I did one for each of Donny's four paws.

    I am so very sorry that this awful day has come to you and your boy. There is comfort that he went on his own terms, in his own time although you might not feel that way right now. You always did everything to help him through all these years and he loved you as much as you loved him.
    There are 20 years of memories that you do have in your heart to comfort you in the days and weeks to come....we always would wish for more, but 20 years is such a blessing!! You two have been so very close for all that time.
    I know that J.D. is having a big reunion with all his forum friends who were there to greet him....they always loved having parties with each other and they are all rejoicing to be together again.....

    Please give Ginger a hug from me....Raja was that way when Shadow passed....just accepting of life and death in such a wise and elegant way. Meanwhile, we Beans are feeling such terrible pain.

    I am crying along with you, Dyana...my heart is breaking for you.....

    Thank you. J.D.'s regular vet just called to say how sorry she was. She said I could bring the kit to them and the girls in the back room will do it for me.
    I begged a neighbor to come with me to the cremation. She's a cat lover and usually babysits Ginger when J.D. and I went to California. She has a cold and doesn't want to give it to me, so I hope I can ward that off with positive thoughts.
