Have you ever lost a pet? Post here in memory. Name: Hercules Pet: Teddy Bear Hamster Died: 2002, age 3 and a half I loved Herc, he was too cute! He even won me the science fair (we taught him to run a maze). He had a three story condo and spent most of his time making multiple food stores and shredding up little blankets to make his bed. I found him one morning... he died while running in his wheel.

Gus - Gus was the kitty love of my life.  I found him at the city dump.  When I leaned down to talk to him he literally jumped into my arms.  I took him home and loved him for 14 years.  He died of cancer a few years ago and I still miss him.  This is  picture of him sitting in "our chair" waiting for me to come sit with him.  He was such a sweetie.
I've had so many cats and loved them all. It's so hard to love a little one that only lives 14 or 15 years and then have to lose them. But that always makes room for more kitty-loves. :-)

I think I'll be like that! I have one from childhood (an old grump now) and two that I bought when I went off to university (all still alive). I will be heartbroken when they go... but I have a lot of kitty love in me too :)

I used to have a huge Doberman Pincher, who had no idea that he was either big, or even a dog for that matter. He thought he was a kid, and he thought God put cats on this Earth for him to take care of. He passed away almost 15 years ago, from old age and I still miss him.

Take care of with snuggles or with bites? He sounds like a sweetie :)

My pet was Snookie, a Siamese cat - given to me by my husband for a wedding gift. She lived 17 years on my bed every night and 3 years in a safe warm place in the garage. Allergies got to me and I couldn't part with her. One day, thin, boney, matted, she looked close to passing. I don't know how I did it, but I took her to have her put to sleep. I brought her home in a blanket and set her into a grave behind the cedar tree in our backyard. My husband bought a marble marker to mare her life. Here lies Snookie 1981-2001. We have moved three times since and keep her marker in our yard. Plus, we put her decoration on the tree each Christmas. Some pets just hold that special place forever.

That's a really nice way to remember her :) I can't imagine losing either of my two current cats... maybe I'll get them Chrismas decorations too. She sounds like a sweetheart, and 20 is a ripe old age for a cat!
