I lost my friend, Delphine on Wednesday evening. She was about 16 or 17 years old. She had been with me for about 15 of those years. I made the decision with the vet to euthanize her after a long battle with renal failure. She was desperately skinny and had stopped eating even after treatment.

She was my constant companion and I miss her so much. I can't stop myself looking for her when I get home and I am realising only now how much I looked forward to seeing her on the way home from work.

Delphine had a gentle and supportive spirit. We loved each other very dearly. Often we just sat together enjoying our warm bond and when I stayed home she purred all the time.

It was awful to have to see her go. I am heartbroken. I rescued Delphine from a shelter - she had been abused - but Delphine rescued me from loneliness and pain. I am so grateful that I had her in my life.

Our loves
by: Russ

Thank you for writing those thoughts of your lovely cat Delphine. Our animal friends truly have a special and unique purpose in our lives. Those who have not let themselves fall in love with an animal are truly missing something. Right now we have pain when we miss our true and faithful friends. I believe that you will see Delphine again. Imagine her at her finest hour - sun shining on her soft white fur, and muscles under her sleek flanks. This is how she is now waiting for the day you will be rejoined. Energy can neither be created, nor destroyed - only transformed. So I know that our spirit energy continues on even after our bodies are no longer able to contain it. We must go on through the pain of today and always remember our loved ones with a smile. Soon enough we will be rejoined.

Animal Heaven?
by: Anonymous

I am so sorry for your loss. I have lost three of my very close and special friends (1 dog, 2 cats) within the last year. I know with all of the unconditional love, comfort and joy that these special friends give to us, there must be a place for them with us in heaven. I choose to believe that my three dear friends are in heaven with my wonderful husband having the best days of their lives. Your beautiful Delphine is doing all of the things that cats love to do while she is waiting for the day that she will greet you in heaven. Yes, I believe that animals go to heaven too.
