A piece of my heart is in heaven

This is The Female Human. We had to say good-bye to Tucker tonight. It was a quick decline (kidney cancer) and his last hours were comfortable. My heart is shattered.

  1. OH NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anita! Why didn’t you reach out and say something?! Then again, maybe it was just too much to talk about – I’m that way with Bear these days. I just feel horrible that you dealt with this on your own when you have so many people who love you. Lecture over. Hug time ❤

    • Thank you my friend. I am so blessed to have friends like you. It was just too tough to talk about right away. Your words warm my heart and your friendship is a blessing. I’m finally getting back on track. It was hard to write and engage for a few weeks but the rest of the Tribe insisted that their views be expressed.

  4. We are so sorry to read about sweet Tucker. We just lost our beautiful calico Lulu last week . It is so heartbreaking. The rest of your Tribe will be missing him too, but in many ways he will still be with you.Purrs.


  5. Tucker, please wait at the door for Anita and the rest of us. Bring Val, Topaz, Jasmine, Molly, Bugger and Tsunami with you. We’re sending loving thoughts to Anita, cuz she misses you.


  6. I am so very sorry to learn that Tucker died. I know you will miss him so very much. Every time we must let one of our cats go ahead of us it is heartbreaking. What I know is that if humans go to heaven, then cats do too. If they do not then there is no heaven. Any creature that lives has a soul.. Sometimes I laugh when I think of the herd of cats waiting for me there. I don’t think God makes them wait to go to heaven. I hope they all come to greet me when I get there. Tucker had a good life and was truly loved. You did good.

    • Laurel,
      Thank you so much. I too believe there are cats and other animals in heaven. I’ve had several people recommend Randy Alcorn’s book Heaven to me so I just checked it out from the library. Evidently he gives a good argument for this idea. What a beautiful thought to think of all our beloved felines playing together in heaven.


  7. Our tribe of 6, and their humans send you head bonks, coos and love. It’s bitterly hard to let go of the ones we love, and who love us so unconditionally. You all have our love and compassion at this time.


  8. Godspeed your journey to heaven Tucker; we send hugs N loves to you, mom, dad and the family you leave behind. If it helps, please let mom know St Francis stayed by your side on your journey to heaven, so you weren’t alone, had no suffering, and didn’t feel afraid. We are truly sorry ♥♥♥♥♥♥

  9. We are all creatures of God. Tucker holds a unique place in your hearts. No one ever passes from the grace of God. Hold him in your hearts and thoughts.


  10. I’m so sorry for your loss of dear sweet Tucker. He is forever in your and his fur-siblings hearts and all of you are in his heart forever. Sending love and purrs.
