    RIP sweet old man Elan



    My sweet Elan went to the Bridge yesterday. He saw the vet and it was determined that he had cancer and was in renal failure. He was deaf, partially blind and only weighed 4 lbs. His yowling told me he was in pain. He was almost 20 years old. It was then that I had to make the ultimate decision to help him to the Bridge. He went very peacefully in my arms.

    While you were only with me for 6 months, I gave you the best 6 months I could. You didn't want for anything. The house is so quiet without you. I miss you waking me up at 5 a.m. to eat and sitting on the futon with your paws wrapped around my hand while you slept.

    Play hard at the Bridge my beautiful old man. You knew love for such a short time and brought me such joy and pleasure. I will never forget you.


    Rest In Peace Casey (Bubba Dude) Your paw print will remain on my heart forever. 12/02

    MooShoo,you left me too soon.I wasn't ready.Know that you were my soulmate and have left me broken hearted.I loved you like no other. 1999 - 2010See you again "ONE FINE DAY"

    I am so sorry. At least you can take peace in knowing the last 6 months he was much loved by you.

    RIP Elan
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    Donna, you gave dear Elan everything he could want...food, a hand to hold while he slept, and even lower litter boxes for his old limbs. He had the best 6 months of his life with you.

    Rest happy and loved, sweetest Elan. Play healthy and joyfully at the Bridge.

    I am very sorry for your loss. 6 months or 6 years the pain of loss is the same.

    I'm so sorry, Donna, but you gave Elan a beautiful six months of love. Take heart in that.

    Elan, play well at the Bridge, sweetheart, your Meowmie would appreciate hearing from you on occasion.

    I'm sorry about your precious Elan. Not too many people will take on old timers and give them a wonderful home for their last days.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Elan knew he was loved, though.

    Rest in peace, Elan - and go find your friends at the RB.

    I agree completely. Elan knew he was much loved for these past six months. I enjoyed knowing him as a PT Kitty for the time he was with you. ((((HUGS)))) Elan, you are a very special gentleman and you were loved by a truly amazing meowmie, who introduced you to us.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Donna, those 6 months w/ you were kitty nirvana for Elan, and something he never would have known otherwise (Unless another PT home had opened up). Bless you for giving him that. And for making the selfless decision this morning. You and I and many on here have done that final decision many times, it is never easy. Hugs to you. Sounds like it was Elan's time.

    Romp at RB Elan!
    I've been BOO'd!!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    Rest in peace, darling Elan. You are whole and healthy again, a beautiful radiant Angel, at the Rainbow Bridge, where you will greet your beloved Donna and welcome her Home, One Fine Day..

    The silence really tears at you doesn' it? It doesn't matter if it was 6 months or 6 years, they leave this big hole in your heart when they leave. thank you for giving Elan "The Good Life" while he was part of your family.
    Proud to be a crazy cat lady!

    That was so wonderful to make Elan part of your family so he can go to his reward as a part of a family rather than a stray.
    Elan will let a the other Awesome Angels know al about you and you will be met by so many Wonderful Angels when you are all reunited at a Resort in Paradise.
