Taken from my January entry, changing the background.

(Animals 10/30/2012)

Littlebit made her transition to the Rainbow Bridge three weeks ago.
She gave us 16 years of unconditional love, as we nursed her thru life.
Born with multiple health issues, she showed us how to get on with life, and love.
We miss her so much.

Dear Mumj, This is such a precious photo of Littlebit. What beautiful expressive eyes she had.

We well know your pain in our home. You know we surely do. It's terrible to lose them or to have to make that decision to have them put to sleep. Horrible. They are so very much a part of us and our lives. And you had her for 16 beautiful long years.

You were the best family she could have ever had. Always remember that. Okay?

Big hugs from Canada to you!
-Laura xo

Such a beautiful portrait Nancy! Losing your pet is one of the most heartbreaking moments in life. Especially your pet lived with you for many years. I'm sure Littlebit was happy being with you. She must be resting in peace now.

What a beautiful portrait, Nancyj! ... and what sad news! I'm sure you are in terrible pain over the loss of your sweet Littlebit! Pets are such great reminders of how we should treat one another ... without being judgemental and loving unconditionally. I know your dear kitty brought you so much comfort and joy ... but none of us can live forever, ... not here on earth anyway.

I really do believe that Littlebit has gone to the Rainbow Bridge and will be waiting there for you to join her. Don't worry because she is happy and not in any pain. Our pets will be there with her too! Just dream about the wonderful times you had together and she will remain in your heart forever! My thoughts and prayers are with you, my dear friend.

Big Hugs Photobucket,
Lorna

Such a wonderful portrait. Very sorry to hear that you have lost her. She will always be with you though as you will forever see or hear something that will remind you of her and in that moment - she will be there again.

NancyJ, I'm so sorry to hear about Littlebit's passing. When you lose a much-loved furbaby after 16 years, the pain is as great as losing a child.
Some people (who never have had such a deep connection to an animal) think it's absurd to compare the two. But you and I and everyone above who has "been there, done that", understand that love for a small and vulnerable being is the same, whether it's for a child or for a long-time companion. And the void in our hearts is also the same.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. Please look at this gorgeous portrait whenever you need to, and remember Littlebit this way.

This one called out to me: "Open me up and take a longer look". Those amazing eyes, those wonderful whiskers, that deep rich b/g...and being a whole-hearted cat lover, I followed the "command"...and then, having been there myself so many times before, my heart broke for you reading your very sad commentary. There's no easy way to wade thru the emotions you're feeling right now, Nancyj and I know you know that - but you will, at some point, look back on your LittleBit and these sad times, with less pain and a genuine sense of gratitude for the gift of the time she chose to spend with you and yours. I wish you that peaceful place. Take care.
