I am so sorry for your loss, I know what you are going through, I have lost so many in the last year.
I am setting here with tears running down my face for you, my prayers and thoughts are with you

Angel AbbyGrace

Chrystal I am so so so sorry about Janie. I struggled with the same thoughts you had surrounding Gracie with her breathing problems. So I completely understand the balance you were trying to keep. You have Janie so much love throughout her life with you and she gave it back so beautifully. We know when we take them into our hearts, they are only ours on loan, for too brief of a time. We have to let them run free with no earthly restraints. It takes our heart with them, but when you balance out the love, it makes it easier, in time to deal with the loss. I am so sorry for how much it hurts right now. Sending you massive prayers and hugs.

Goldie Goodwin

I am so sorry. It's always hard when the time comes to make "the decision". She had a wonderful life because of you. She was loved and cherished, as you do with all your 4-legged kids. My deepest sympathy for your loss

Cathy Cat Lady

oh Chrystal. thank goodness you have such a large heart that you can keep giving up pieces of it. Hugs to you, dear.

John Bellen

You were afraid you wouldn't know when you needed to let Janie go, but you knew when you saw her food uneaten. How swiftly the end came then. What follows is the pain of loss. That's the bargain we make when we love: the joy now, the pain later. But Janie would tell you, if she could, that what she went through at the end was worth the twelve years of love and friendship you and your family gave her. And you would tell her the anguish you feel now is worth having known her, too. The hurt is great, yet it's really a small price to pay for having had the company of such a friend. Godspeed, Janie.


So very sorry. I know you are so sad..We always love them so much and for many we have to reach this point. I'm thinking of you..

I am crying as I read about Jane passing. She is no longer hurting and that you loved her dearly and she loved you. She was your sweet pet for so long and it is so hard to let them go. We need them with us to pet and love. Sometimes we have to make the hardest decision to give them a way out of their pain. I feel sure Tarzan and Jack will be there to welcome her across the bridge. Maybe some where in the path they will see a small black kitty named Spot Dot who crossed over Tuesday. Forever loved and feeling no more pain -Forever loved. Bless you Chrystal. I feel your pain. Ginny & The Fur Family

JANIE - Brave, beautiful, loved so hard but now breathing free and reunited with her pals. Her spirit will remain with you always, Chrystal.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties

Chrystal, I'm so very sorry. Hugs and love from all of us. You're in our prayers.

Maria in CT

Chrystal, my thoughts and prayers are with you tonight. Janie gave you her final gift of letting you know that it was time, and you have her the final gift of letting her pass to the Bridge. Her suffering is over, and oh my, did she hit the jackpot being your dog! It would be my wish for every animal to experience the love and devotion that you and your family gave to Janie. Safe and quick passage to the Bridge, dear Janie!

Cat's Cats

Oh Chrystal, I'm so sorry!!!


Crystal, I am so very sorry to read about your beautiful, sweet Janie. They take such a huge chunk of our hearts when they go, it's a miracle there is any left for the next soul that comes to us. Luckily for them, and us, you are that miracle.

Our hearts are with you and your family, and of course, sweet Janie. Swift passage, beautiful girl.


I am sitting in my office crying for your loss. I know that loss well, myself. My heart breaks for you and I am sending you soooo many hugs. You are a wonderful mama to your babies. You always do right by them. Thank you for your compassion that you show your furbabies and all of God's furbabies that he brings your way.

ginny & The Fur Family

The first night after they are gone is the worse because you keep seeing them there in their spot and with a second look you realize they are not there. I thought about your dear Jane last night and offered up prayers that you will always feel her spirit with you even after death. I do feel spirits of our pets never really leave us but linger in our minds and hearts just out of sight in the corner of our eyes like a shadow. Love never dies... Ginny & The
Fur Family


I don't even know what to say, my friend, except that we are so sorry. Please know we send you love and prayers of comfort. Thank you for loving Jannie so very much.

Cats of Wildcat Woods

Oh Chrystal I am so sorry you lost Jane. She got two more years with you because of your effort. I am sending lots of loveing light to surround you in this loss.
