I am so sorry !!! If I could, I'd give you a big hug. Like you said, we've all been there. You did the right thing for both of their lovely souls.

Chrystal I had a feeling when you didn't post til now that it would be sad news. I am so so so sorry that Scroungy had to leave, and so so so sorry that Elfus did too. But they will have each other for that journey, and they will always be with you in your heart and in your memories. And we are all here for you always to give you lots of love and support. I wish I was down there to give you a hug and also give you a break from your care duties if even just for a few minutes. You do so much for all the animals that come through your place - you give them the love and care and respect and dignity that they all deserve - for your own animals and for all the fosters this is so important. Both Scroungy and Elfus were lucky enough to get the love and care from you and your family - that is a wonderful gift. And that you were selfless and let Scroungy go, instead of forcing him to stay for your benefit, is one of the hardest things to do but also one of the most important. It breaks my heart that they are gone, and I never even met them, so I know you all must just feel so much worse than I do, and that breaks my heart too. I wish I could do more than just send words and prayers (and purrs from the cats) of comfort and support and love.

Oh Chrystal, I almost made it through the post without crying (because I was braced for bad news when I saw both their names in the title) then when you said they were buried together I just lost it. But I'm very glad neither of them will be alone.

Elfius did indeed have the most fantastic elf ears and would have grown into a beautiful mancat. Scroungy was a faithful companion through many years and I know you will miss him terribly. I'm so sad.


What a very long lonely vigil with both Elfus and Scroungy. Very sorry for both losses.

 Ginny&the Fur Family

Dear Chrystal - my heart is crying with you and your family- I felt that the moment would come that you just knew there was no way back for either of them - So many times I have been there and it takes forever to move on and the heart never does. Every one expects you to just snap out of grief but that is not the way it works.. When Andy heart dog passed - A friend meaning well said -" You want to go for lunch it will make you feel better." I wanted to screem in the phone - Are you crazy? I have just lost my beloved Andy." I just declined. I could not eat for days with out crying. People who do not have- or love The furry ones can never under stand people like all of us. I know how hard this was for you and your family- You did the right thing. You gave them all your love and care and Scroungy grew older along with your family - He was a family member. Poor little Elfius - died surrounded by love --He knew love - He will join Wennie and Scroungy in a place where there is no pain - Over the Bridge - WArm thoughts to you all -- Ginny & The Fur Family

Chrystal, everything that I want to say has been said - better than I could. I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved family members.

Love, Deb

I can hardly even type through my tears. What a heart-wrenching post. Love and hugs to you!

Fuzzy Tales

I'm so sorry, Chrystal. They're at peace now, but you're left to grieve and left with the memory of the terrible night.

All my love and Light to you and your family; I'm going to www.gratefulness.org to light a candle for all of you, of course including Scroungy and Elfius.

Blessings and Peace...Hugs.


I am so sorry to hear about Scroungy and Elfius. Words simply pale in comparison to the sorrow in your heart. Just know that I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers and that both Scroungy and Elfius are now together at the Rainbow Bridge running jumping and playing with all of those who when before.

What the heart has once owned and had, it shall never lose.

Khyra's Mom

We are sorry for your losses - and our candle will be lit for both of them -

It is sad to have to listen to their wishes when it is time but it is the gift we own them -

And in a sense, ourselves -

The idea of oldest and youngest crossing together makes it more how it was meant to be -

Khyra and Phyll


My condolences for your losses. Hang in there!


So sorry for your loss. Headbutts and ((hugs)).


I am so very sorry for your losses. I know that there isn't really anything that I can do to make the pain go away, but please accept my sympathy and good wishes for you and yours. You do good things for those animals, even when it hurts you, and for that I will always admire you.

We are so sorry to hear this. We send you comforting purrs and headbutts.

Dear Chrystal and Family, Scroungy and Elfius were so lucky to have you in their lives...for they truly experienced being loved. And to be loved is the ultimate gift of life. Thank you for keeping your hearts open and for being teachers for us all. I hope you are comforted in knowing how much you have given to so many souls...

The Poupounette Gang

Farewell to two gentle souls who are now running free and thinking of you with much love and gratitude. Scroungy was loved long and tight by you and Elfius, for those few days, learned the meaning of the word. We share your pain.

Milo and Alfie

Goodnight sweet souls. Whether it was just for a short time, or like Scroungy for a long time ~ you were both truly loved. It is comforting to think you are now both pain free and nothing can harm you. RIP little ones.

Chrystal, I am so sorry. Words fail me today ~ because I know just how painful it is to lose a furbaby. I'm sending you my love and healing vibes. Thank you for giving Scroungy such a loving forever home ~ and for doing your very best for little Elfius.

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die".

You gave the greatest gift of all to Scroungy ~ you let him go even though your heart screamed out for you to keep him. And for Elfius ~ you gave him the gift of love and a comforting end. No one could do more.

Jan ((((((((hugs))))))) xx


This is so very sad, poor darlings. Thank you for caring for them and ensuring they weren't alone or allowed to suffer. It's always hard to make that decision. Rumbly purrs to sing Elfus and Scroungy to The Bridge and to you Chrystal too.

& The Ape


I read everyday and hardly ever post. But I had to today. I'm so sorry for your losses. You are a very special person for all that you do. I admire you.

I am so very sorry for the loss of both your precious Scroungy and the baby Elfius. Soft purrs to you during this sad time.


Dear Chrystal,

We are really sorry that both Scroungy and Elfius had to run off to the Bridge. Thank you for loving them both so much. I wish there were something ... anything ... we could say to make things better. Please know we are purring and praying for you, and that we care.

Ayla, Iza, and Marley
