Default Thank you to everyone re: Zoey

Hello everyone -
I just wanted to say "thank you" to everyone out there who has either read or replied to my thread(s) about our beloved Zoey. I know that my first post was rather long (ok really really long) and a bit much to digest, but even if nobody read or replied to it, I wanted to do right by Zoey and tell her whole story...I owed her that. The replies are helping me so although it is a very long thread, I would love it if a few more people could read Zoey's story and then help me through this difficult time.

I am in terrible pain right now but also ready to move on. Truth be told, I lost my Zoey months before she departed on Monday. Once she got sick, the cat we grew to love died a bit each day. I'll never know what actually took her from us, but what I do know is our cat of 8 years was slipping away each day slowly and we owed her a more peaceful journey to the other side of the bridge....which she received.

Now, my promise to our Zoey is this.... Now that I realize how much she really did give me, the family Zoey left behind will be cared for and loved by me more now than ever before.... I'll be an even better father and husband than I am now. To Carlie, Zoey's buddy, I'll double up my cat love for you... to my daughters Alexandra and Gabriela, I'll remember that my first goal in life should be to make you smile and laugh....and to follow that up with hugs and kisses....to my wife Loren, just more love and that magic we use to build our family.

Zoey I love you baby...I'll miss you every day but part of who I am today is because of your touch.

Isn't it amazing how a furkid can come into our lives either for a short time like Zoey or longer like my Jasmine who was 17 when she left us in 1997 and can leave us with such profound feelings and a few lessons as well. As with most things I think that we are given souls (human or animal) that come to us for a reason and although it hurts so bad when they go we know that we are better for having had the experience of having them show us "the way".
Please know we are thinking of you all at this sad time.
I have just found a poem written by Jennifer Byerly,
When we take on a pet we all know that
One day we must tell them goodbye.
It's hard but still we must do it-
Though at times, we may question why-
I pray that your memories sustain you
With a joy in every sort of way.
May they always serve to remind you
How your friend made you smile every day!
