    Tennessee, April 1997- December 19, 2006

    I don't even know where to begin. My heart is broken, and my baby Tenny is gone from me forever. I helped him to the Bridge this morning at 11 am. I remained with him, whispering words of love, comfort and sorrow. Hard to believe it has only been 8 weeks since I heard that diagnosis of cancer. Two rounds of chemo did no good. As my fluffiest of all tuxies slowly faded away to a shell, I couldn't ask him to hold on any longer. No more whiny cries. No more heavy padding of the feet. No more headbumpies that sent my coffee spilling. No more good will ambasador. No more lover boy. I lost a precious member of my family, and Dakky lost his best friend.

    Tenny never caused anyone a moment's pain. Why did this have to happen to him? Why? Play hard at the Bridge, Ten-Ten. Christmas won't be the same for me ever again. Give Tex and Binx my love.

    Love,
    Mommy

    Unhappy Sympathies



    Dear Joh ~

    Hard to just say "We're sorry ..." - sorry doesn't cut it at a time like this.

    Try your hardest to remember those Head Bumpies ... Tenny at his best.
    Hopefully Dakky will practice his *bumpies* on you - to help relieve his grief.
    You guys can *Bump* your hearts out on each other.

    Tell us some Tenny Tails - they might bring some tears, but they'll also bring
    some Fond Memories that help to heal.

    Big {{{Hugs}}}

    Johanna, I didn't want to believe my eyes when I saw this post. It is not fair at all and my heart hurts for you. Please believe me when I say I wish I could have been there to help you through these past weeks. You have been in my thoughts, daily.

    I didn't get a chance to meet this wonderful soul in person but you were very lucky to have Tenny share your life. I'm so, so sorry that cancer took another....

    Tenny, please come by and keep an eye on your mom. She's really hurting and will miss you. She will also need to remember the wonderful times you shared and that you will always be alive - in those memories and in her heart.

    (((( Johanna ))))

    Oh Johanna, my heart hurts so much to read the grief in your words. Dear Tenny was such a precious, fluffy, beautiful, sweet Tuxie, and I know he will be in your heart forever. I'm at such a loss of words, and know that no matter how hard I try, my words will not make the pain go away, but I want you to know that you are in my prayers, always. May God comfort you at this time of sadness and pain. May you find comfort in all the wonderful memories you have of him. I know just how very much you loved Tenny.

    The tears are starting now. Sweet Tenny, rest in peace, in comfort. We will all miss you tremendously.

    I'm so sorry to see this today, Johanna. I know how much you loved your Tenny, and how much you will miss him. That final act of love and compassion is always the hardest, but take comfort in that he's not hurting. We're all here for you.
    RIP, sweet Tenny

    Joanna,

    Losing our babies is most devastating and losing them close together is even worse. Tenny was the sweetest boy and so close to your heart. Lots of healing prayers for you and your family (fur and skin) - I'm sure Tenny is greatly missed.

    Rest in Peace sweet Tennessee - please come and visit your Mama; she needs to know you're just fine.

    Hugs,
    Betty
    Yours in Whiskers

    Oh my gosh, Jo, I'm so sorry. I just can't believe Tenny is gone - I still had a hard time believing he had cancer.

    Tenny has been one of my all-time favorite PT cats and even though we haven't heard (or seen!) much of him lately, I will miss him terribly. I remember a thread about what is your dream cat, and my dream cat was Tenny - a big fluffy boy cat who knows how to give a good head bumpie.

    I can't believe he is gone, but I know you did only what was best for him.

    Tubby will be happy to meet you, Tenny. When you share head bumpies with him , try not to knock each other out.

    Jo, {{{hugs}}} to you and Jonah, and extra special snugglies to Dakky.
