Natalie,

I was so sad to read about Gus' passing today, and I am so sorry for your loss. I wish we could keep our little ones forever. I do know you did everything possible for Gus for as long as possible, and nothing more could have been done. Your constant oversight and dedication to Jack and Gus have been an inspiration to us all, from which we have all drawn strength to provide the best care we can for our animals. For me, that will be Gus' legacy. Please accept my very deepest condolences, and know that we all understand how difficult this is for you.

All my love,
Kevin

Natalie and JJ,
As a mom of two 20 year old cats, I can totally sympathize. I am so sorry that you are going through this, but your cats could have asked for better care and love. They were so lucky to have you as their loving parents.
Deepest sympathies and prayers. Definitely, the hardest part of pet parenthood is seeing these innocent creatures suffer and letting them go. I am hoping when my turn comes, I come out as strong as you and still have capacity to care for others in need.

Natalie,

I am just so sorry to read that Gus has passed away. Any animal lucky enough to reside with you has always gotten the best of care and love. It's hard but regardless of how much we love we just can't get that extra time with them.

Thinking of you

Jenny

Hello Natalie....I'm so sorry to hear of Gus' passing.
It's strange....because I was thinking of you within the last two days and wondering how things were going with you and Jack....so I came to check and found this about Gus. I know that you did the very best for him and letting him go was your only option.

OMG, Natalie, I am so sorry to hear about Gus. You have always been here for me and I would give anything to make everything better for you. Please know that my love, prayers and healing energy go out to you.
To Gus: Roll happily in the catnip fields of heaven, little guy, with all your new friends across the Rainbow Bridge. Watch over your Mom and all of us still fighting all these battles down here. May sunshine warm your face and gentle breezes be at your back. Until we all meet someday at the Bridge......
Godspeed and God Bless, our precious Gus,
Carrol & Sparky

Natalie,

I am so sorry to hear about Gus.........but there is one thing that is certain Gus was well and truly loved.

You and Jeff did everything you possibly could for him. He is resting in peace now Natalie free from pain...........It hurts so much but you know within yourself it is a happy release for Gus.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Hugs

Margaret

Hey Nat,

I know how much you cared and loved Gus. God knows you did everything possible for your boy. As a matter of fact you did more than most pet owners would have done. He was lucky of had you as a Mom. You weren't thinking of your pain you were thinking of his. The most important thing consider is the quality of life of an animal. When there isn't any quality it is time. I think you knew this. Doesn't make it easier does it? It still hurts like heck. I am sorry. Hugs to you, your family and to Jack and Katie. Transfer your love to your others. It helps with the healing process. So sad Nat. So sad

Marianne
