RIP Sunshine-Kitty 8/18/98- 5/23/11

Today we said good-bye to one of the world's sweetest cats.

Sunny leaves behind his littermate brother Moony... 

He also leaves behind his half-brother Furby and his Maine Coon
friends- Candy, Tommy, Joy and Pride. 

Sunny always loved the lady cats...

He loved to be their fur stylist... 

In lieu of flowers and cards- please add $1 to your Petsmart bill.
Donate to your favorite kitty rescue.  Adopt a rescue kitty.
Or do anything kind for another kitty in his name...

He was our Sunshine.  He takes a piece of our hearts...
And he leaves us with many cherished memories of 
the 12.5 years he spent dancing on the earth for a short time. 
Please listen to "You Are My Sunshine."

Oh no! I just can't believe it. I'm crying as I'm writing this. Sweet, gentle, soulful Sunny!

What happened? You said something about his teeth and then the next thing I knew I saw the post on the CB homepage. My mind wouldn't let me see that it was your Sunny at first. I thought it couldn't be.

Carm, I am so sorry for your loss. I'm sure Moony will be so distraught as well without his other half.

I hope the other kitties will surround you and Moony with love to help you get through this painful time.

I'm just in shock. I imagine you are too.

I am so sorry on the loss of little Sunny. Such a wonderful little kitty. I am writing this through misty eyes, having gone through the same painful experience so many times through the years. My heart goes out to you and your furry family. God speed, little Sunshine.

I feel your pain and your loss. No cat can replace another in our hearts but the cats that remain in our world bring their own joy that eases the pain of parting from a beloved companion. I lost the last member of my cat family a few years ago and the pain was horrific until I adopted a boy and girl... Now I have a family of nine Himalayans. Too many, but I love every one of them. Despite that, the memory of every cat I've loved in the past remains strong and I still miss them all. We are truly blessed to have the company of these wonderful, magical creatures on this earth.
