    This is the condo I have been dreading ever since we joined this amazing FDMB family over 6 years ago. Last night we had to help our sweet feisty Trixie cross. Despite her amazing rallies all week, and despite yesterday morning starting off virtually normal by Trixie Standards, she didn't bounce back from the "morning meds crash" I mentioned in yesterday's condo the same way she had bounced back for the first part of the week. She even had a decent dinner, but she definitely did not seem like herself. When we went to do her evening fluids, she was very unsteady on her little feet, and at that point it was clear to us that we could not put her through any more.

    Needless to say, we are heartbroken, but we also feel so blessed and fortunate to have been given so much extra time with her - time we truly owe to everyone here in L&LL, because without all of you, we would not have had the "strength in numbers" support and knowledge that we needed to help our strong little fighter not only fight, but win, the incredible battles she did through the years. Her bright, amazing light will burn on forever.

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, our FDMB family, for all your love and support through the last 6 years, and especially through this past week...

    Prayers to all....

    Amy

    I am so sorry to hear that Trixie has crossed the Bridge. It is never easy to give the hardest and greatest gift of love. I truly believe that the rallies our furangels give us towards the end are their way of giving us special memories of them in better times to hold in our hearts.

    Oh Amy, I am so, so sorry that it was Trixie's time to go to the Bridge. My tears are falling and my heart hurts for you. Trixie was indeed a fighter and the two of you won so many battles; sadly, that last battle is one we must all face, knowing it won't be won. I know nothing can ever fill the hole in your heart that her passing leaves, but I hope, in time, your wonderful memories of her will help it to heal.

    farewell-friend-cat-sympathy-card.jpg ...until you meet again.

    Fly free, sweet Trixie, and land softly back in the heart of the one who loves you the most cat_wings>o

    Amy, I am so very sorry that is was Trixie's time to cross to the rainbow bridge. You have looked after her so very well and done everything humanly possible to keep her safe, well and happy.
    It is so hard to make that final decision and I know the pain you are feeling at the moment. :bighug::bighug:

    I am so sorry Trixie has gone ahead. I just gave my Yum a swarm of teary hugs and kisses when I read your news. It hurts so much when we lose them. You did a fantastic job at the end. Your grief will not be complicated by any regrets or what ifs. You can focus on the joy and wonder Trixie brought to your life, forever.

    My heart is genuinely aching this morning. I am so very sorry. Your love and care for Trixie has been felt throughout L&LL, and beyond. I know it's been a journey with ups and downs, but I'm certain Trixie knew your love for her. Because of you and DH, she had a good life.
    ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Fly free, our sweet TrixieGirl, and land so softly.

    It sounds like you did absolutely everything you could. I know in your heart you will wish you could have done more though. I am new here but know the loss of a furry loved one. I am so very very sorry Trixie has passed. I hope so very much she is at peace now. Try to rest and care yourself. I am sure Trixie is grateful for all your love and care and wants you to be okay too.

    Soar high on your new angel wings sweet girl....landing softly back in Mama's and Papa's broken hearts.

    :bighug:Amy, my head & heart are with you during this time of losing Trixie. It is absolutely devastating & so much hurt when we learn to navigate the loss of FURbabies who are our best friends. Our constant companion through the years it is such an unexplainable void. I am wishing you breath when you feel you cannot breathe & peace & eventual comfort in a lifetime of memories.

    We are so sorry. (((((Amy and DH))))) Trixie was a special girl, from the moment you met her, then rescued her, her cuddles with everyone, her amazing trip to OTJ. Her last week was a gift to you to say goodbye, to the beans who took such incredible care of her. And as Mariko told her mother, no regrets. you did everything you could. It's a sad day in Lantus & Levemir Land.

    (((Amy and Mark))). So many tears as I read this and type. As hard as it is to let go our sugar girls, it really helped me to think of them running and chasing butterflies again at the Bridge. I am sure Trixie will be greeted by open paws by all our GAs, with Petey front of line.

    And please take care of you too. Taking care of a complicated kitty is exhausting. We are here for you. :bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Sending you and DH warm, gentle hugs to help ease your pain. In time, may the beautiful memories of your Miss Trixie comfort you.

    Soar high and free on your new Angel wings sweet Trixie. I will ask Flamie to meet you at the Bridge and be your friend.

She had a beautiful life with you, full of love, and she will carry your love with her forever, as you will carry her love. Sending you peace and many hugs. (((((Amy)))))

    My heart is aching so for you today. I know too well how unbearable the pain is to lose not one, but two babies in such a short time. :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    You have all been through so much in the past couple of years, but your commitment to your kitties never wavered. Your helicopter never landed. Now it is time to park it and take some time for you. Be good to yourself, snuggle with Frankie, Noah and Zen, and try to think only of the happy memories, when sweet Trixie was at her feistiest. She is free from all discomfort now, reunited with Petey and Mario, and will wait comfortably for the rest of her family to join her at the Bridge one day. She is one of the legends of L&L Land, and will be dearly missed by all.

    Fly free, dear, sweet Trixie, and land softly.

I miss them all and their wonderful beans so much. There are still a few old timers on the bus who continue to teach others. Trixie will have a huge welcoming party.

    Dear (((Amy & Mark))),
    Trixie--so beautiful, so strong, so feisty, so loving--will look down from the Bridge tonight and thank you for being her beans and for listening to her when it was her time to begin a new adventure. She is "in good paws" with so many old friends. And Petey and Mario are there to give her big hugs.
    We will never forget your girl. She was an inspiration to us all. We are privileged to have been on this journey with her and with you. That bright star in the sky tonight, illuminating the Full Strawberry Moon, is your Trix, trying out her new golden wings.
    Fly Free, dear girl cat_wings>o You are much loved.

    In deepest sympathy and loving remembrance, :rb_icon:

    Oh Amy, I'm so sorry to read this. You've had such a hard heartbreaking time in the last while:( I was hoping she would rally and stay. You both fought so hard together. Trixie knew how much her beans loved her, and she'll be keeping an eye on you from the bridge. I wish they could stay with us forever. Fly free, sweet Trixie, you will be very missed. (((Amy))) Hugs and prayers :bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Oh, Amy... I was so sorry to see this!! You all have been such wonderful caregivers to this sweet, adorable girl who always made me small. No doubt the whole crew will be greeting her upon her arrival on the other side of the bridge. Here on earth, I'll be keeping you all close to my heart, sharing your tears, and Herbie and I will be lighting our special candle that sits by Willie and Miss Jezebelle and keeps the memories of them and all our FDMB family alive.

    (((Amy and Mark))). We will all miss Trixie's spirit and what a little warrior she was. Everyone in L/L Land is heartbroken and many of us know too well how hard it is to make that decision that sets our baby free but devastates us.

    You did an amazing job with Trix while she was on insulin and as she fought the CKD. It wasn't just luck that gave her so many more high QOL days....it was all your love and care.

    @CD and BigMac Thank you, my friend, for reposting that infamous bus party photo. It breaks my heart to see so many of our babies in that photo have crossed but also brings me comfort that they are all together and my LBG is driving them all around. It also brought a smile to my face to see them all...Zener with his cape, Punkin hollering, BK, JD, and Moonie, Sweet Tess, Maggie, Gabby in the helicopter. And I am so thankful for the ones still alive.

    Many Many hugs Amy.... I am so very sorry to read that it was Trixie's time to make that journey. My heart too is broken. I shall truly miss her. every day I would check to see how she was. What a warrior, and at the same time such a gentle soul. So many wonderful memories. I hope there is consolation in those memories for you. Always remember that she is never far away, tucked away in the special corner of your heart. Watch for the signs, she will let you know she has completed her final journey. There are many wonderful kitties waiting to welcome her at the Bridge, Mannie being one of them.

    Fly free Miss Trixie, land softly at the bridge. You will always be remembered, never forgotten. :rb_icon:

    Trixie is OTJ for all eternity at the Bridge. She is completely content and free of pain, but how hard it is for those she's left behind. Take care of yourself, Amy. You might feel like your schedule is totally empty and it will give you a lot of time to reflect on your loss. I hope those wonderful memories will warm your heart when the pain lessens and you can close your eyes and imagine Trixie in the sun. Rest easy, Trixie.

    This sucks. I'm so sorry, Amy. I hate saying goodbye...even if she wasn't my cat :arghh: I just wish The Rainbow Bridge had visiting hours. I'm sure Trixie is hanging out with Shasta and all of the amazing cats that have gone before them...hanging out at blue lagoon by the green grassy knoll...no more elevator rides up and down the pink and yellow floors. Hugs to you, my friend. :bighug:

    Fly free, sweet Trixie and enjoy your new life at the Rainbow Bridge. :rb_icon: You've definitely earned your wings. cat_wings>o

    Oh Amy, It's been days since Trixie passed and I'm still feeling weepy and so sad for you and Mark. Trixie has been part of our FD journey from the beginning. I think you and I joined FDMB in the same week with Trixie and Punkin, learning the ropes of the Sugar Dance together.

    What a ride this has been - full of joys and sorrows like nothing else! I'm holding you close in my heart as you go through the days ahead. It's such an enormous change after you've had your life routine all arranged around meeting Trixie's needs.

    It does bring a smile to me to imagine Punkin and all these sweet little ones who are gone ahead greeting Trixie as she arrives. Good thing she's got the compass to help her navigate!!

    CD - thank you so much for sharing the party bus. Punkin's still trying to get cheeseburgers for all of his buddies at the party! What a great memory. I miss my sweet boy and all the kitters who were part of LLL at that time and are now gone.

    Lots of love to you and Mark, Amy.

    Fly free Trixie, and land softly.

    I've been checking back here but have been having a hard time being able to actually sit down and find words post. But I have to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for all the beautiful words, thoughts, sentiments, memories ( @CD and BigMac - gosh that picture brought a smile to my face), support, and love.

    The loss and the huge change in routine are tough, no doubt about it, but it so truly helps knowing I've got this amazing worldwide FDMB family. And, I love knowing that Trixie is surrounded by so many friends, along with our own GAs Petey, Mario, and Mr Kitty, at The Bridge while she waits for us to join her one day.

    As we've often said here, FDMB is the best place we never wanted to be. While I would never wish a diabetes diagnosis on anyone, if Trixie never developed it, we wouldn't know all of you, and without a doubt we would not have had nearly as much extra time with her if it weren't for that dreaded diagnosis that led us to this incredible group.

    Thank you, once again, and we will still be around....

    Amy

    Thank you for all the hugs and checking in on us, everyone.

    Frankie seems to be doing OK...she's so happy-go-lucky about anything and everything that nothing ever seems to faze her.

    Noah and Zen have had a harder time - they are both very sensitive kitties, and Trixie spent a lot of time snuggling with both of them, so they have been feeling the loss. I was actually pretty worried about both of them over the weekend, because they were acting so off - not eating well, moving slowly, tummies seemed to be bothering them. I knew it was most likely grief, but it was still very unsettling. They are both doing much better now, though...they do seem to have "moments" when they appear to be depressed, and they are both extra-needy/clingy (more so than usual), but their eating and activity levels are much, much closer to normal.

    It has been a tough adjustment for all of us...not only the huge loss of Trixie crossing, but also the huge change in routine. I do feel like I'm slowly adjusting to all of it, but as you guys know, I spent SO much time every day taking care of her that - even though there is a ton of stuff to occupy my time - I still tend to feel a bit lost. It seems to hit me hardest mid-afternoon-ish, for whatever reason.

    But, I am trying to make myself push through it as best I can. I've been reminding myself that Trixie (and Petey and my Dad and everyone else who has gone ahead) would want me to be living, so I'm doing my best to honor their memories by trying to do that, even though my heart isn't fully back into it just yet.

    Thank you again, everyone. And I am slowly working my way back to posting...I've been checking in on everyone regularly, but it's still a little hard to "participate".

    Prayers to all....

    Thanks for the update Amy. I know with the routine as I felt the same after Maggie passed. Good to hear Frankie is doing good. I remember seeing pics of snuggles. Sending comfort vines for Noah and Zen and Frankie and you. Before Mags was diabetic I had a boy kitty (Mikey). After he passed, she kept looking for him, so I feel for Noah and Zen. Lots of prayers and hugs. :bighug::bighug::bighug:

    Amy, even though I've not been here much in recent weeks, my thoughts and prayers have been with you all the time.

    The path to finding the way in coalescing, for everyone in the family, somehow finds its new balance but, as you know, it's all in his/her own way and time. I was so surprised and grateful that civies Bella and Dancer found comfort with each other after Sootie passed on and that their bond continues to this day.

    Our love in heart and soul to you, your family and with Trixie, whose glorious courageous spirit shines forever.

    Thank you yet again, everyone...the outpouring of love and support has truly carried us through this difficult time.

    We're doing "OK" here. Civvies Zen and Noah have definitely had a tough time. They've both had digestive issues that wax and wane all their lives (so frustrating on many levels), and the last week or so we've had appy issues and LB issues and sluggish demeanor issues. My nerves have been pretty rattled, since there is no way of knowing if they are reacting to losing Trixie, to my stress and grief, or if it's a "normal" flare that they'd have anyway. My guess, though, is they are reacting to the situation as a whole...grieving for Trixie, confused by the huge change in routine, stressed by my stress, etc. They are very sensitive boys. We even hauled poor Noah off to the vet last Thursday because something just seemed so off...couldn't quite put my finger on it, but I knew I needed him checked out. And he did check out OK, at least on paper. And poor Zen, who is usually unfazed by cat carriers and such, when he saw Noah heading off to the vet, Zen's eyes were huge and HE backslid into a crappy appy. UGH.

    Fortunately civvie Frankie is a tough, happy-go-lucky little girl and she just keeps on keepin' on. I'd love to know her secret.

    Anyway, I do believe (and hope and pray) Noah and Zen are probably on the other side of the hurdle...I expect they may backslide a bit, but hopefully not back too far (or hopefully not at all). It's been a bit rough and quite stressful. But I am doing my best to TRY and hide my stress (so not easy to do), because I know them seeing me stressed just magnifies the problem.

    I picked up Trixie's ashes today, too. I knew it was going to be hard, but it was even harder than I expected. Honestly, I still haven't been able to take her pretty little box out of the packaging yet...I just can't do it. But, she is back home where she belongs. When DH gets home from work, I'm going to have him put her meter in the box with her.

    I've been keeping myself busy with lots of stuff around the house that has been neglected for the past several years because I had been so busy with both Trixie and my Dad's care, too (It's already almost been a full year since he passed....July 15). Over the last few days I power washed the patio and porches, and repainted the porch decks. Not fun, but necessary, as well as a good distraction. And it feels decent to be getting things done that need to get done.

    I'm trying to get focused on my business stuff, too, but I am still lacking my creative mojo.

    I do keep checking on everyone every day...it's just been hard to post...but I feel like I'm moving closer to being able to get active again.

    It is incredible how drastically all of our lives changed in a instant when she crossed. But, I know she is always near.

    Prayers to all.....
