    What a beautiful, melancholy video. I’m sorry for your pain, but it just proves how very much loved Elvis was. And your description of grief is so achingly accurate. I wish you peace in the days ahead.

    I’m so sorry to hear about Elvis. It’s never easy to lose a pet, especially one that has been a part of your life for so long. My 13-year old Shelley is going through the same thing. She has good days and bad days and I’m just trying to maintain some sense of normalcy for her while preparing myself for the inevitable. Nothing heals like time, and time is the only thing that heals grief.

    I’m so sorry to hear about Elvis. the video (of course) made me cry, so I’m sitting here at work crying for Elvis, but that’s OK. Beautiful video. Beautiful cat. Beautiful Soul. May she rest in peace and be forever in your hearts. *HUGS*

    So, so sorry for your loss. When we have a lot of love to give, be it to our human family or our animal family, our hearts get broken. She was an extraordinary kitty and friend. How wonderful to have been loved as she was, and what a gift that you are someone who can love so wholeheartedly.

    Good thoughts for you to be comforted by your great memories of such a special pet.

    I’m so very sorry for your loss. Elvis was clearly an extraordinary kitty and companion. I’ve loved your stories about her, and your video was wonderful. All the best for you as you go through this very sad part of life.

    Victoria and Paul, there is no consolation when one loses a family member, no matter how small, no matter how long we had with them. I have been there and can say that while it is never 100% ok or the same, the sense of loss and grief does lessen over time and there will come a day when you can remember without tears. Elvis will always be in your heads and hearts.

    I’m at work in tears now after reading about Elvis. Losing my cat after 17 years together was devastating. Cat people all understand your sorrow.

    Well now I’m blotting tears from my eyes at my desk at work – yet ANOTHER downside to these darn open floorplan modern offices.

    So sorry to hear about Elvis but I know she knew how loved she was. Give your sadness some time and the wheelbarrow full of it will eventually get smaller and smaller.

    Dear Victoria,
    My heart hurts for you, Paul and Elvis. What a wonderful life you gave her and she is now with the cosmos. My one question is, as human kind is so intelligent, why we have not found a way to have our pets lives extended to match our own lives? Saying goodbye to my pets is always heart wrenching and I always think I cannot go through it again. Then someone will call me with a little one that needs a home and I am off again in kitty love. I celebrate with you Elvis’s very special life and the love you shared together.

    I am SO SORRY for your loss! I too have felt the grief you are experiencing, though I admit I’m a -gasp- Dog person! If you have never heard of the Rainbow bridge, I urge you – when you are ready because IT WILL MAKE YOU CRY – visit http://www.rainbowsbridge.com. (Yes, the addy is “rainbows”.). It is a BEAUTIFUL poem designed to help us fur-parents deal with our loss. This site also has other info to help us cope. The pain will ease, but will never go away for us, UNTIL we make the journey to retrieve our fur-kids from Rainbow valley. Embrace your grief, don’t let ANYONE tell you “it was just a ….” (Cat, dog, horse, pig, whatever! They were your baby!) Soon, you will be able to call her memory to mind and SMILE – maybe thru tears at times, but you WILL be able to remember and SMILE!

    Moon River was a perfect choice for her memorial video. I feel your pain.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Losing a beloved pet is incredibly tough. It’s been happening a lot this year to my friends and my collection of “pet sympathy cards” far outweighs my “people sympathy cards” right now. If it wasn’t stalker-ish, I’d send you a card. Rest in peace Elvis.
