Barney

Pets have a way of snuggling into your heart. Then stealing it. And finally breaking it.

Yesterday, we said good-bye to our Barney.

He was my Supermodel





He appreciated all knitted things





and he would even help me knit.



Guard Cat Barney also watched over the stash.



Take care, sweet boy. May you be in a place full of sunbeams and toys.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It's so hard to lose a beloved pet. I saw a sign in a shop that said Heaven is the place where all the cats you ever loved come to greet you.

I'm so sorry. It's so hard to lose our furry friends. Wish I could give you a hug in person, but now I'm keeping you in my thoughts.

Oh, I'm so sorry. I'm guessing your home feels very empty without him. Take care.

I hope you're doing better, Mary. To cheer you (I hope), I gave you an award. Come on by to pick it up.

Sorry you've lost your darling Barney. Our cats lives are so short but emember all the love he gave you, thats much more than the pain you feel now.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Mary. Losing a family member is always difficult even if that family member is a pet.

I just happened upon your blog today, but I want to pass along my condolences. Your tribute is touching. I'm sure Barney is in a land of sunbeams and toys, just as you said.
He was a very handsome gentleman.
