    Oh my goodness you guys, I am in tears….I’m so sorry for your loss, and what a touching story. You gave Owl such a good life and she was so loved. I can’t even think about ever losing my two little guys even though I know the day will eventually come. There are so many animals out there that need loving homes and I agree – always adopt your furry friends.

      Thanks so much Lauren, it was a very rough week and we are still processing and healing.

    Oh my gosh Giselle, I’m bawling my eyes out here. She was such a beautiful precious cat. I know I have already told you this but I am so sorry for your loss. And I am so proud of you for showing her so much love from the moment you met her. xx

      Hey Karyn,

      She was such a beautiful and sweet cat. We lost her way too early.

    This story broke my heart – thank you for sharing it with us.

    We have visited a number of rescue centres around Thailand and we know how hard life can be for animals out there. So, we know how much Owl would have appreciated everything you did for her. You gave her the love she deserved, but never had before she met you both.

    You are both such wonderful caring people and, just as you were blessed to have found Owl, she was definitely blessed to have found you both too.

    xx

    Thank you for sharing Owl’s story with us in this time of heartbreak. I’m so sorry for the pain that you’re feeling, but at least you know that she is no longer suffering and that you gave her a great life while she was here on this earth with you.

    I’m feeling the pain of your loss, Giselle and Cody. My family has had a number of cats over the years, always adopted. We lost one last summer after 15 years together, and of the two we adopted shortly after, one was killed by a wild animal and the other is currently dying of an intractable disease he probably got while living on the streets. Your story brought all of that pain back to life for me. I’m so, so sorry for your loss of Owl. You gave her a much better life than she ever would have known otherwise.

    I just read this at a coffee shop and tears are rolling down my face. I remember when you met Owl, when you flew with her, when you brought her home. I know you both loved her deeply. I am SO sorry for your loss, but I also know that Owl had an incredible life. You gave her the best life she could have ever had, and for that, her story is not sad, but heartwarming. She had you in her final days and knew love. I love you all and am so sorry she is not with you anymore. But, now she is with Sickie and all of the other animals who have graced your life and are no longer physically here.

    This post made us cry. What a wonderful kitty! Seems so loving and you captured this in your pictures. Definitely agree about adopting animals. There are SO many animals who need our love in the world and we certainly don’t need to be breeding any more!
    We are so sorry for your loss and are also happy that you provided Owl such a wonderful life. 🙂

      Thank you guys. We had a very difficult time saying goodbye. It was very painful, and we are still processing our loss.
      We take comfort in the fact that she had a fantastic life in canada.

    Oh, My little owlie…..I loved her so much! She was truly one of a kind.
    She never failed to communicate when she wanted something….whether it be coming to bed with her, letting her outside to the backyard or the front porch, or simply wanting to make herself heard….your little girl had a beautiful time here with us and we had a wonderful time with her…she was precious…She went on a few adventures of her own in our neighbourhood and each and every time she made her way home, either by finding her in a neighbours backyard or just reappearing in our backyard….SHE WAS REALLY THE SWEETEST…Queenie our older girl, who is still with us in body, missed Owl when she passed on by the eating for over a week and not coming into my bedroom for 2 weeks….All animals are very intuitive; they feel, have emotions, love, cry, get depressed….all the behaviours and attitudes of us, human animals….please don’t eat them, any of them. 🙂
