    Heartbreaking day here...

    We are so sad to hear that sweet Charlie has crossed the bridge.
    Many tears for Jill today.
    I am so very sorry. (((((((Jill))))))))

    Jill asked that I put the video back up so we can remember Charlie with some smiles. cat_pet_icon
    I am honored to do this small gesture for Jill and Lona.
    After all, Charlie did earn her OTJ status.

    The jet is gassed and ready to pick up all the kitties cause we is going to Europe! But we must be on our bestest behavior - Charlie is at the ER and needs our help! Kitteh Choir, BMG - let's get the music ready to help Charlie feel better.

    I just want to add - that I am so very sorry what happened, but I so love the video and how Charlie's favorite position seemed to be laying down, even her play she laid down...she looked like she was such a fun and loving girl.....fly free sweet Charlie - you are much loved and will be sorely missed.

    May you find lots of places to lounge and relax at Rainbow Bridge.

    Jill, may you find peace and comfort in the days and weeks ahead.

    If you've not seen Jill's post, Charlie is in shock and is being treated at an ER. For the moment, your well wishes and vines could be used in Jill's condo about Charlie's status.

    I put a hold on the OTJ video for now so we can all concentrate on sending our thoughts or prayers for Charlie to recover.

    Although we're all saddened by the passing of Charlie on what was supposed to be one of his best days ever, this video is a tribute to him that did indeed bring a smile to my heart. As time passes, and the pain starts to fade, I know Jill will look back at this video with love and laughter.


    Congratulations Charlie...You did indeed make it to the Falls!

    This is a bittersweet moment. I love the video and especially love the toes giving Charlie a belly rub. It made me smile through my tears. Charlie has earned her place at the Falls and earned her wings. Fly true and steady sweet Charlie.

    I loved the video this morning when I watched it, and even more this time. You can tell that Charlie was an exceptional kitty with lots of personality. She will be missed. I am sure she is lounging at the bridge and giving lessons to the other kitties there on how to do it.

    Jill, I am so very sorry for your loss. We all feel your pain today. My heart aches for you. Such a sad day in lantus land. Charlie truely touched everyone here with her sweet face and spirit.

    Hugs.

    There are beautiful waterfalls in Heaven and Charlie has earned her place there by being OTJ.

    Amazing video, Carolyn.

    I saw a double rainbow today and I'd like to think it was Checkers and Charlie letting us all know they are just fine.

    No matter the tragic sadness of this day, YOU WENT OTJ, CHARLIE!!!!!

    Charlie is OTJ and Flying Free. Bittersweet. She's such a beautiful little girl and who could resist that little laying position. Blessings to Jill and Lona on this day of ultimate freedom. Fly free, sweet Charlie. You've earned your wings to fly over the Falls. wings_cat

    Charlie is such a beautiful kitty and what a wonderful video and tribute to her with happy memories.
    I just read Charlie's other condo, and I am so very sorry. My heart and prayers go out to you and your partner.
    Maggie is one of the GA kitties waiting to meet Charlie. Lots of hugs.

    Wonderful video, CD! It did make me smile, and then cry that this lovely, lively kitty is now gone. It's clear that she had a happy and loving life. Big hugs to Jill and Lona for their loss.

    Thank you, sweet friends. We are here with very heavy, painful hearts today. Our apartment is so quiet and empty that it's real hard to get used to the lack of Charlie's presence. Ella and Rusty: That meal sounds so very fun and so very Dutch. Charlie would have loved it.

    We went out with friends for a real nice lunch today. It helped us forget this heavy situation for just a little while today.
    Tonight is going to be really hard on both of us. Our eyes look like big, puffy, red pillows. We are both emotionally and physically exhausted, yet cannot sleep.

    I hope today Charlie is resting on her back up on soft white clouds in the sky, looking down at us with healthy, kitten eyes and energy. I really cannot even begin to explain how sad we feel today.

    That video is a perfect tribute to a real sweetheart with a huge personality.

    I was out of town all day yesterday, and came back last night to this :cry:
    I remember when you first appeared on FDMB with your Dutch tuxedo girl. She reminds me of my Donovan, who I also lost rather suddenly after managing to go OTJ.

    Lighting Butthead's candle to welcome Charlie to the Bridge. You know she has a lot of wonderful LL kitties who will welcome her.
