Chrystal, I'm so very sorry. Yet also full of joy that Daphne DID know love and comfort towards the end of her life. You are were so right ... she was meant to stay with you. I too wish her life could have been longer, and better at the start ... but she did have the most loving of ends. And for that I am truly grateful.
Thank you Chrystal. RIP sweet Daphne. xxxxxxxxxxx

I am so sorry, Chrystal.

Fuzzy Tales

Poor Daphne.

(((Hugs))) and purrs to you, and universal Blessings for loving her so dearly.

Eric and Flynn

We are so sorry for your loss, but glad that Daphne knew the true meaning of love towards the end of her life.

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz

As you said...this was meant to be and Daphne surely knew love these months and that is a gift, keep those memories close to your heart.

Random Felines

We are all so very sorry. Mom said she felt a connection to Daphne - even without meeting her. Hopefully her legacy can be that she lived a MUCH better life with all of you - and maybe helped educate some other about FIV. No matter how much time she had, it was SO much better for having been found by you all.

Cat's Cats

Sweet Daphne! Yes she was meant to be with you and to feel your strong love. I cried through the whole post wishing she had more time too but I think her passing was as gentle as it possibly could have been in your koala embrace.

Ps- received your email and sent a response, hope it reached you

The Poupounette Gang

Sweet Daphne received the gift of absolute love from you and she left for the Bridge in your arms. That is the most beautiful gift there is.

Ginny & the Fur Family

Dear Daphne - fare well - you will be forever loved even over the bridge - with tears in my eyes I want to say that Chrystal knew the right time and handled this with love and grace fitting to Daphne - exactly the right way - with Daphne feeling love like she was just going to sleep on her mama stomach - she will now be free from all pain - no more fighting for chicken bones -at peace in a field of flowers and clover napping in the eternal sunshine with the God of furry ones - Ginny & The Fur Family

Madeline

I AM SO, SO SORRY SHE WAS MEANT TO BE WITH YOU AND TO KNOW SO MUCH LOVE.
THE ALTERNATIVE FOR HER IF SHE HAD NOT BEEN FOUND BY YOUR DAUGHTER WOULD HAVE BEEN SO HORRIBLE.
THEY SAY THERE ARE ANGELS HERE ON EARTH AND I KNOW THIS BECAUSE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY HAVE ALREADY EARNED YOUR WINGS MANY TIMES OVER.
GOOD BYE PRECIOUS SWEET DAPHNE.

Abby

Oh dear Chyrstal

My heart is aching for you and dear sweet Daphne.
Keeping you in my prayers.
Love & purrs

That was a lovely and moving tribute to Daphne, Chrystal.I'm so glad she was in your arms in the end and not frightened, alone in a back alley.Life can be cruel for some and there is no denying that but she found momentary respite from the hard world she knew , in your arms.Thankfully.
Rest in peace sweet baby.You were loved.
We send you heartfelt hugs Chrystal.

Hi Chrystal! What a lovely ending for such a lovely kitty...to be held by her mama in such a loving way and be helped to the bridge where she can experience no more pain. Daphne is in our hearts always and I hope that she touches many others to adopt FIV+ kitties.
Much Love,
Mindy :)

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties

Oh Chrystal, my heart is breaking all over again. I'm so glad you got to hold her in her favorite position right to the end. If she had to go, that's the most loving way to do it.
You amaze me, even in the worst of times you know each individual kitty so well that you know how to make them most comfortable and happy. No doubt Daphne was ready, and I can almost hear her purr as she cuddled her way to the bridge.

Marg

Oh Chrystal we are so sorry. You sure did your very best to help Daphne and she is so lucky to have known your love. She did have a rough time but at least she had you at the end. We are sending lots of purrs and some hugs too. Take care.

The Island Cats

I am so sorry to hear about Daphne. But the one thing that made it bearable is the fact that she left this world knowing what love is. Thank you for giving her that.

Lana

I gotta stop reading your posts at work. I'm a weepy mess now. Thank you so much for loving her like you do. Every cat should be so blessed.

Thank you for loving Daphne, and guiding her path in this life and into the next. The cards were stacked against her...but your love gave her the comfort, security and happiness she carried with her to the Bridge. So very sorry your time together was so short!

Sweet Purrfections

Goodbye sweet Daphne. Our thoughts are with Mom Chrystal.

Kerry

I'm so sorry to hear about Daphne's passing, but she was blessed to have you watching out for and over her. Godspeed, sweet angel.

momsbusy

even though her life started rough and was short, daphne was more fortunate than many kitties that never get a chance at having a loving home. your love was something, i feel sure, she treasured. it was very caring for your vet to allow you to hold her in her favorite position. sending comforting prayers and healing purrs.

Tillie & Georgia

We are so sorry to hear about Daphnne. She was a beautiful kitty.Her happy life began the day you rescued her and we believe she was happy till the end.
She was lucky you were there for her.We know you miss her, so we send you comforting purrs.

Purrs Tillie and Georgia,

I'm sorry for Daphne's passing. Like everyone else has said, I find it comforting that you were with her in her final days so that she knew love. I know that this must be bittersweet for you, and I grieve with you.

Lee County Clowder

Farewell, Daphne. We are so sorry.

Bellen

Poor Daphne. She didn't have much time but what she had left, she was able to spend with you and your family. That's a lot to be thankful for, considering she may have died in pain, fear and loneliness. She passed away in a loving home, and that is a wonderful gift.
