I'm so sorry for your loss. But it sounds like she was a wonderful companion, and so were you.


That was beautiful. I'm sorry, Moxie.


She had a beautiful life in a loving home. What more does any living thing need?

I know you all will miss her.

I miss having an animal companion; after reading your list it's a physical hurt. They are really so special.

Sorry for your loss, Moxie.


You were so lucky to have had her. What a wonderful friend.


Thank you for sharing this. I thought of you all morning today.


Damn, and now I'm crying. I'm so sorry -- but so glad you and Siggy had the time together that you did.


She is beautiful. I'm sorry.


I'm so sorry for your loss. It sounds like she really lucked out living in a loving home in her later years, and you had a fantastic companion. Both of my cats like to sleep just like Siggy.


*sob!* She sounds like a wonderfulk cat and she definitely was beautiful and loved. I'm so sorry for your loss.


So sorry for your loss, Moxie.

Between your journey with Siggy and my just having read Marley and Me, I just can't imagine how hard it is to lose a pet.

Oh, honey, I'm sorry. She was a lovely cat.


That is a beautiful tribute to a loving and beloved friend. I'm so sorry you had to say goodbye.


I'm so sorry about Siggy. We lost our dog Benny almost five years ago, and I still cry when I think of him. The writing helps. It truly does. When Benny died, Michael and I sat down together and wrote up a list of things he taught us. We called it the Tao of Benny.
I keep them posted up next to my desk and look at them often.


I can identify too closely with 3, 6, 7, 8.

I am so glad that you got to know her. What a great cat. Thank you for sharing her.


How lucky you were to have found each other. I know you'll be imagining you see her out of the corner of your eye or thinking "Where's Siggy?" for weeks. Pets are such a big thing in a home.

(My brother's cats will only drink out of the table fountain in the living room. Aren't cats the funniest things?)


I'm so sorry for your loss, but I'm glad you have such good memories of her. It sounds like she was an awesome cat.



You make me want to go to the animal shelter and make a home for a cat today.

Sniff - you got me with #8. I'm so sorry :(


That was just beautiful. Siggy was very lucky to have you, and vice versa.
I'm so sorry for the loss of your gorgeous old friend....


She was gorgeous. I'm sorry she's gone.


What a treat she was and those nicknames were delightful. Take care my heartbroken friend.


What a nice tribute. She was lucky to have you to help her go out with dignity.


Sorry about your loss. Of course I read this.


Goodbye, Siggy. What a lovely tribute, Moxie. I lost my Rocket a few years ago, and I can still hear her 'talking' and it makes me happy.

Have you read 'The 10th good thing about Barney'? I wondered from the title of your post. It's one of the most beautiful kids' book, ever, about a boy whose cat dies.


It isn't any easier even though you know you made the right decision. And you're right, she was a beauty.
