Rusty's Mom Writes

I want to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and wishes. It's been really hard for me after losing Rusty. We had gotten so attached to each other after Grady passed away. We were so close. I feel like I lost a part of myself. It has been so hard. I know you all understand. Some days I just wish I could see his little face again. It brings me to tears.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts. They make my cry when I remember, but they do offer me comfort too.

Letting him go has not been easy.

We are here for you, in fact it was good to hear from you. Rusty was a Special Boy and we miss him too.

Please take care. As long as we remember them, our loved ones are with us.

We understand. We went through the same feelings when we had to let Wizard go. I cried for months. We are here for you and honor his memory!

My friend... I am so sorry that I haven't been here sooner, I've only just heard the news.

You're in our thoughts, I know what you're going through only just having lost Inigo not so long ago. I hope they're together at the bridge, playing with all the catnip mice in sunpuddles.

Losing a kitty-cat angel is just not easy, ever. We love them so much, and they love in return, pretty much unconditionally. I dread when Jack's time comes (although that guy is full of piss and vinegar and holding on to amazing energy and well-being despite diabetes, cancer, dental disease, and CRF). Rusty was such a sweet and peaceful boy.

We so understand. Mom said she can relate to how you feel, 'cos when she lost Henry (Lilac Point Siamese, 1985 ~ 2004) it was, and still is the same. She still cries for Henry even now.
But she said to remind you that Rusty and Grady have special places in your heart, and will always be there with you (just like Henry is for her). Mom hopes that eventually the pain will lessen for you, and the beautiful memories will take precedence ~ even though you will always feel a loss.
Love and (((hugs))) to you.

Maybe one day, when you are ready you could offer a home to a kitten ~ and let all the love taught to you by Grady and Rusty, benefit another furball. Maybe. It took mom 4 years to feel ready for us, but then she said she wished she'd done it sooner. She said we helped heal her pain.

I was a loyal reader of Rusty's blog but never commented, my mom loved Rusty because he looked just like me. I am a senior citizen so Mom is dreading the day that she has to let me go. I loved Rusty, he was such a great guy. I hope you'll be able to open you home to a needy kitty in memory of Rusty.

Rusty was an inspiration.

Hi Rusty's mom. We understand why you are so sad - Rusty was just such a sweet boy. We still think of him too and miss him a lot - we can't even imagine how hard this has to be for you. We are sending over lots and lots of purrs and prayers.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Echik said...

I am so sorry for your loss. :-( Even though I haven't gotten the chance to meet poor Rusty, I know that he's been a good and sweet companion to you and your family.

I know what you're feelin' right now is really hard, especially when you two have gotten so much attached to each other. I will include Rusty in my prayers. I am sure he is now happy with Grady. They're both watching over you.

Be strong and keep your faith.

Im so sorry that you lost your Sweet Rusty. He looked like he was a cool cat. Thank you for helping your sweet baby to the bridge. I've had to do that twice and it is so hard. My face was the last thing my babies saw though before they went and they loved their mommy..just like Rusty loved you so.
Again Im Sorry.
