View Full Version : Lucas wants to say good bye.

06-26-2006, 10:24 AM
I have been wrestling with this decision since the middle of last week. Not wanting to make it too soon and not wanting wait too long, either. But Lucas needs to make his final trip. :( Later today I will post his memorial, after we return from the vet's , but for now please remember him like this.........his last photo:

I'm so sorry. Gentle {{{hugs}}} for you and Lucas.

06-26-2006, 10:32 AM
Oh Jen I'm so sorry. I'm trying not to cry now. I don't cry easily and there have only been a few PT cats I've gotten attached enough to for tears but Lucas is definintely one of them.

How appropriate we are having our first rainy and dreary day in weeks. :(

Dear Lucas,
I haven't known you very long, I haven't been around PT as long as you have, but I have grown to know you and know that your meowmie loves you dearly, and you are very dear to all on Pet Talk.
I hope your final trip to RB will be a soft gentle one and that you have so much fun when you get there and rest with all the other kitties who have made it their final resting place.
Goodbye Sweet Lucas.
Love Kate, Jack & Sunny

My thoughts are with you Jen at this sad time.

Lucas- you will be in our hearts forever :)

And send a sunbeam down to your mom.

Darling Lucas, your Meowmie loves you so much that she just had to make this decision, to end your pain.

Watch over her and comfort her from the RB, dear one.

(((JEN))) - I know how hard this is - this final act of love that hurts us SO much. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Lucas today. Be gentle with yourself and take time to grieve.

I am so sorry that the time has come for dear Lucas to leave us. :(
I am crying right along with you Jen.

Godspeed to the RB Lucas. You are so loved and will never be forgotten.

Godspeed Lucas.....you do look tired and ready to romp on the other side.

You will be missed....

06-26-2006, 12:31 PM
:( LES here. I am so sorry for you Jen.... and am sending you hugs from Indiana.

Godspeed to the bridge little Lucas. You will be painfree and there will be so many there to meet you.

06-26-2006, 12:44 PM
Farewell Lucas - have a safe trip. You're going to meet so many wonderful critters at the bridge. Say 'Hello' to Henry and Phineas for me. Phineas is big and beautiful and orange - just like you.

06-26-2006, 01:02 PM
Jen - I'm sorry for the pain you are going through and will go through for some time to come. I also admire you for coming to this decision, and what a hard one it is to decide when is not too soon or not too late. I see in his face what others see, that Lucas doesn't want to leave you, but his body is tired and painful and he is ready to leave it behind.

When you feel like it, please post some stories and old photos Lucas for those of us who have known him a very short time.

06-26-2006, 01:13 PM
I know how hard this is. My heartfelt sympathies to you, Jen. Lucas will be missed.

06-26-2006, 01:16 PM

Kisses and hugs to Lucas.

Beautiful wonderful boy!

Nothing more I can say...just kiss him for each Pet Talker...


06-26-2006, 01:30 PM
I have LES too. :(

Goodbye Lucas! Bilbo will be waiting for you at the RB with all the other RB kitties.

Hugs for you Jen.


06-26-2006, 01:32 PM
Oh Jen, I'm so very sorry. :( Lucas was one of my favourites here, such a sweet boy he was. I know you are the right thing for him, but it's very hard, I know. :(

Have a safe trip to the RB, dear Lucas, you will be very much missed. Know that Pjevs will be there to greet you - and you're just in time to celebrate with John on his birthday tomorrow.

Rest in peace!

My thoughts are with you Jen.

06-26-2006, 01:39 PM
Jen ~ I'm so sorry that Lucas' time has come. We will all miss him. Hugs to you.

Oh Jen I dreaded the day I would have to read this. Lucas was in the best of hands and had such love. Now he'll be at peace. Hugs to you.

06-26-2006, 05:59 PM
Jen I know that the hardest trip with Our Companions is the one where we come home with an empty carrier.
There will be a Lucas Day tomorrow when we have our fish and chips, and then he will be an Official Pet Angel.
And he will have such fun, with them , and even more when he and Y.Lee meet you in Paradise.
One Fine Day.
