    Joe

    A gorgeous, handsome at-least-partly Maine coon, from the look of him (and the description too) - and 15 is a nice long comfortable life-- thank you for sharing this wonderful family member! Condolences on his loss- but many thanks for the long and happy life you shared with him- he looks like one SERIOUSLY happy, contented Coonster in that pic!
    Congrats on COTD, Joe-- I'm sure you're beaming with pride up at RB, as well you should be-

    A rose for Joe - and you are certainly deserving of it. I know you are dearly missed, and when that rose bush blooms, your beauty will also bloom again.

    RIP handsome boy!

    On January 1, 2009 Joe made a new friend in my Beyli, who I lost and he was also just over 15 years old, but I was only lucky enough to have him for nine years. It would have been our 10th New Years Eve together. He also had chronic renal failure so I completely understand your pain and I hope that when Joe was with you, you were able to get the necessary assistance from your vet in order to make his life as comfortable as possible as I did. There is an even stronger bond that is formed between us and our furry babies when going through this disease (and other roller coaster diseases as well I imagine) so the emptiness when they leave when they are gone is felt deeply. Not a day goes by when you don't think about them and perhaps shed a tear in tribute to the love you shared. I also had my best friend cremated so that he will be with me until we meet again.

    If anyone else is going through this disease with their beloved cat I highly recommend consulting www.felinecrf.org - and there is also a very helpful forum. So much help is offered from the members who have or are going through this - dare I say, more valuable information that you can even get from some of the veterinarians out there. A diagnosis of chronic renal failure is NOT a death sentence if diagnosed early enough - it can be managed with the proper foods (not necessarily prescription diets from the vets as cats don't usually like them - Wellness, Evo, Merrick, Eagle Pack, and others kept Beyli alive) - as well as medications and fluids. Beyli lived a happy, active 4 years after diagnosis and I did not lose him to CRF at the end.

    Please have your pets sterilized as soon as possible to lower, and one day hopefully eliminate, unwanted and abandoned pets. It IS our responsibility. Adopting from a shelter also helps - encouraging breeders just adds to the overpopulation.

    No matter whether the time we have with our cats, be long or short, we miss them so.....From what you wrote, Joe enjoyed his life with you to the fullest. You loved him and kept him safe, and free from harm. In his way, Joe returned the love back to you. What a wonderful tribute the rose bush will be to Joe...Sleep softly, dear Joe...

    So nice to read Joe's story this morning. He was so handsome and obviously had a wonderful, love-filled life. Each of our furry friends brings a unique personality to our lives and takes a piece of our hearts when they leave us that no one else can fill.

    Joe - RIP

    My own gorgeous tabby is 17 years old and I know how precious every day is. Joe will be missed, but the rose will bloom and remind you of all the joy he brought.

    A rose bush for Joe. What a beautiful way in which to memorialize and pay tribute to a beloved furkid and best friend for life. Throughout your cherished 15 years together the unconditional love you and your Mom shared, the friendship you forged, grew and blossomed with each passing day. And so your precioius spirit will continue to live on Joe, of course in your Mommy's heart, and now too with each and every beautiful new rose that blossoms! You lived a long and full life Joe, but for we humans it is never long enough, is it? But until that happy day when you and your Mom are reunited, just think, she will have all of those beautiful memories you and she made together to cherish, and now your rose bush, to comfort her and put a smile on her face. We're so honored to have the opportunity to pay tribute to you today Joe, to memorialize and share with the world, all that you meant to your Mom, the joy you brought to her life, your enduring legacy of love and devoted companionship.

    To Joe's Mom...my heartfelt condolences on the passing of your beautiful boy. I too planted a rose bush in honor of my "first," my Fritz; it continues to grow and thrive some 20 years later. So many of us here have lost a beloved one to CRF, myself included (my Fritz) and we understand, and send you all of our love and support. Thank you so much for making each and every day of Joe's life so special. He was so very blessed to have had a Mom in you, and you, the most loving and loyal furkid in him.

    Love, Sandra

    Good ol' Joe...!

    He was a very sweet, pretty cat. I know that he had a long loving life!

    (Miss Kitty, one of my brood, looks similar to Joe - she'll be five in two months).

    I think the rose is a beautiful remembrance for such a noble friend! Last summer my boyfriend and I lost our 21-year-old cat, Tomas, the day after y boyfriend's mother died. This was not a happy time. I took two carnations from one of the floral arrangements at her funeral and brought them home and placed them on Tomas' little wooden urn. They are still there to honor a most excellent cat, as your rosebush will also be there. Happy COTD for Joe!

    Thomas Hardy - Transformations

    Portion of this yew
    Is a man my grandsire knew,
    Bosomed here at its foot:
    This branch may be his wife,
    A ruddy human life
    Now turned to a green shoot.

    These grasses must be made
    Of her who often prayed,
    Last century, for repose;
    And the fair girl long ago
    Whom I often tried to know
    May be entering this rose.

    So, they are not underground,
    But as nerves and veins abound
    In the growths of upper air,
    And they feel the sun and rain,
    And the energy again
    That made them what they were!
