Truffles, Heaven's Newest Angel Cat

Dear Melissa,

Mom and I have broken hearts.We cannot believe sweet Truffles is gone. It's not fair. It's not right. Mom remembers when she first connected with you in 2013 and you told her that meeting me gave you hope you could have another kitty to love after your beloved Tara passed. (A mere two weeks before you and Mom spoke on Facebook.)

You had mentioned you were scouring Petfinder in search of a special kitty.

You found her.

You named her  "Truffles".

Truffles filled your life (and ours) with love. She was the best Secret Paws a kitty could ever hope to have, and an even better friend.

 I was lucky that I was the kitty that she gave gifts to last Christmas and that she sent me a special photo on Valentine's Day.

Truffles read many, many books and did wonderful interviews.

Our lives will never be the same.

We share in your heartbreak.

We pray that Tara and Mom's Angel Bobo are  taking good care of Truffles in Heaven.

 We guess God just needed another kitty angel.

He sure picked a good  one, but much too soon.

We wish he had waited. We are so deeply sorry.

Much love, today and always.

Cody and Caren

  1. These are such sad posts. Our babies become our life. They are part of our family. I'm so sorry for all of your loss.

    Have a purrfect day Cody. Big healing hugs to your mom and tons of healing scritches for you. ♥♥♥

  2. It is absolutely shocking news and my heart breaks for Melissa. Life can be so cruel picking today of all days.

  3. I'm heartbroken for Melissa. They deserved a longer life together.

  4. TW is crying again. What beautiful images. I was shocked when I saw the FB notification in my email box. She was so young. It’s just not fair. I hope she connected with Nicky and Autumn and the other cats who came before we.

  5. I am absolutely devastated. My heart broke for Melissa and I pray for her.... Thank you for this beautiful tribute.

  6. We are beyond words...our hearts ache for Melissa....

  7. Thank you so much, Caren and Cody. This means more to me than you will ever know.

    1. Melissa, oh how I wish I could just spend some time with you right now. There is nothing that I can say that would adequately convey the shock and sadness that I am feeling. If I am feeling this way, I can only imagine how you feel. It is all so unfair. As someone said in the Cats With Blogs group, you deserved more time together. I am just heartbroken and I wish I lived near you to just sit and let you cry, talk and hug you. Sending you so much love. In your time of grief, you left a comment here, that is a testament to just how lucky Truffles (and Tara) were to call you their "Mom". I am so deeply, deeply sorry. Much love from Cody and I, today and always.

  8. This is so touching. The tragedy of losing Truffles has made our hearts hurt, and we're thinking of Melissa.

  9. We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear friend.

  10. That is super sad and you are right, it isn't fair.

  11. My human and I woke up to the news about Truffles this morning - we are both so heartbroken for Melissa. :-( We loved Truffles a lot and will really, really miss her.

  12. We are absolutely heartbroken. This is just so unfair, and just rotten.

  13. Our hearts are broken along with Miss Melissa's. We can't believe sweet Truffles is gone. So unfair.

  14. We are too sad for words. Life is too short, but Truffles was far too young. Sending you strength
    Nellie and Mommy

  15. So very sad looking a kitty, and even harder when it's unexpected.

  16. How sweet of you Caren. I can't believe that she is actually gone either. I am glad that I had the opportunity to interview her a few weeks ago. Just unbelievable and my heart goes out to Melissa.

  17. We are saddened to hear of the passing of Truffles and hope that she is reunited with Tara. Thinking of you...

  18. I'm so sad to hear about the passing of Truffles. You did a beautiful tribute to him.

  19. We're crying all over again. RIP, Truffles. You are a beautiful angel now.

  20. We dropped by. LIfe can be unkind some times . . .

  21. What a sweet, thoughtful, and kind post. This is so heartbreaking and so unfair. Life is just too cruel sometimes....I didn't even realize how short their time was together.

  22. A beautiful post, Cody (and Caren). Simply devastated that Truffles has been taken much too soon. Yes, God picked out a most special angel.

  23. Such a beautiful post. We are deeply saddened by the passing of lovely Truffles.
