Readers and friends, I’m not going to host Fun Fashion Friday this week. I’m grieving the loss of my sweet kitty, Pumpkin. I’m totally heartbroken.
The last couple of weeks have been so hard and stressful, with the saddest outcome. I apologize for not getting around to all my favorite blogs lately, but I know you understand.
In Pumpkin’s honor, take an extra moment today to hold your furbabies close.
Oh sweetie I am so so sorry about the loss of Pumpkin! People that don't have animals don't understand how much they mean to us and how they are truly like a person! I have been there and I know how devastating it is, just takes a lot of time and love my friend. Pumpkin was very lucky to have such a good mommy like you!
He's was my little guy, my little baby … thanks for the sweet comment, Andrea. OXOX
So sorry for your loss. RIP Pumpkin.
Thank you, Ella. OXOX
I am so sorry to hear about your kitty, Dawn. Losing a pet is truly like losing a member of the family. I know that I was devastated a few years ago when our dog died. The grieving process is never easy, but it does eventually get better.
Thanks so much, Katie. Yes, our fur babies are part of our families for sure. So sorry to hear about your dog. I have dogs too. I'm an equal opportunity animal lover. OXOX

Thanks for understanding, Alex. Eventually I'll be grateful for a fun distraction, but this week I just couldn't do it. OXOX
I've never commented on your blog before, but I wanted to say how sorry I was to read your news. Our furry friends are some of the best we can have in life. Lost one of mine 3 years ago this month and I miss his sweet face every day.
Oh Alison, thanks so much for commenting. That's so sweet of you. So sorry to hear about your little guy. It just leaves a hole in your heart, doesn't it? OXOX
I am so sorry for your loss. I know how much it hurts. I will give my furbabies an extra hug today.
Thanks Pam. OXOX
My heart goes out to you, Dawn Lucy! Losing a pet is terrible — I still miss our dog Blackie, who hasn't been with us for over 20 years. Take all the time that you need to grieve. Internet will still be here when you are ready to come back. Big hug from Norway
What a sweet message. Thanks Dear. OXOX
So sorry to hear about your kitty! Absolutely understand your condition as I myself have been through similar situation. I didn't want to tell you before as there is always a hope but a couple of years ago one of my cats had same health issue as you mentioned. And he died. It was hard for me.Our furry friends become part of the family and it is so sad to loose them.
Aww thanks Olga. Yes, we get so attached. Thanks for your sweet comment and I'm so sorry about your kitty too, Dear. OXOX
Oh no, Dawn…I am so, so sorry to hear about the loss of your darling Pumpkin. Fur-babies have such an incredibly special place in our lives – and in our hearts – and I know that you have some very sad days ahead of you. Please remember that I am thinking of you and sending lots of love and virtual hugs your way. XOXO
I knew you would understand all too well, Monika. Thanks for being an amazing blogging friend. OXOX
I am so sorry to hear about Pumpkin. I am a huge animal lover and know when we lose our dogs I will grieve in a really real way. Thinking of you today. Take all the time you need!

So very sorry, we lost our furbaby on October 17th and I was heartbroken, I have a new Shelter Furbaby in my home now and although she doesn't replace Meeko, she has found a very special place in our hearts. Hugs and prayers.
Shelter/rescue pets are super special. All my fur babies are rescues. Bless you for opening your heart and life to another sweet little creature. OXOX
Oh, my heart just breaks for you. I am so sorry to read this. You will definitely be in my thoughts and prayers.

I sent you a few messages as I am sooo sorry about Pumpkin.I know that our fur babies are family. I love my little Gibson and Truffles so much, so I understand. Again, so sorry!
Sorry I haven't gotten back to you, Jess. I really appreciate the love and support. It's been a dark sad couple of days and I'm only now just starting to feel a bit more like myself again. But I'll forever miss that furry little orange face. Hugs to you and your doggies. OXOX
Aw, so sorry for your lost! We totally understand, after all we are human. Feel better hon!
Aw, I am so sorry to hear about Pumpkin! I took care of my father-in-law's 17 year old cat for about a year. He was such an old gentleman. We had to put him down because he was suffering everyday. I miss him all the time too!
So sorry about your father-in-laws cat. Thanks, Dear. OXOX
So sorry Lucy.
Thanks Dear. OXOX
Sad, sad, sad, indeed. I'm sorry to hear of this news.

My condolences about the loss of your sweet Pumpkin. It's so hard when we lose beloved pets. I completely sympathise as I felt bereft when our cat, Treacle died. They are so much part of our lives. I hope once the initial grief passes, you'll be able to treasure the memories of Pumpkin.
Treacle … what a great name. Thanks so much for your compassionate comment. OXOX
I'm so sorry you lost your dear kitty. I am all too familiar with losing a beloved pet. Pumpkin was lucky to have found you.
Thanks so much, Karen. OXOX
I'm so sorry for your loss!! I'm such an animal lover, so I know just how tough it can be to lose one.

My dear Dawn Lucy, I am truly sad to hear this about your sweet little Pumpkin! The more you love someone, the greater the heartache! May happy memories remain and bring you a smile through your tears. May knowing what a good life you gave Pumpkin comfort your heart! ♥

Aww thanks so much, Carmen. Very sweet …. OXOX
So sorry to hear of your loss & sending you big hugs! Andrea xx
Dawn, I'm so sorry about Pumpkin. I am such an animal lover and have had so many throughout my life and have grieved many. It is like losing a family member. Someone told me once that the stars in the sky are all the animals we have loved looking down on us. So every time I look up at the stars I think of my beloved pets and know that they are in a better place. Pumpkin was lucky to have you.
I'm so so sorry to hear about Pumpkin's passing 🙁 Just know that you have an super sweet guardian angel up there watching over you. I'll give Izzo an extra squeeze tonight and will think of you!
I'm so sorry for your loss, Dawn. I don't have a pet but I realize that for those of you who do, they're like children and I've seen many of my friends and family grieve over the loss of a pet and my heart goes out to you. Sending hugs your way.
I am so sorry about Pumpkin. I know time will heal but it is not easy. However, I know for the fact that Pumpkin is up there enjoying his time with the love of mom and dad. I know you will miss him everyday because you were the best mom that he had.
