Goodbye, my Faithful Furry Friend

Tackett, 1997 - 2013
After a long fight with various health issues, we said goodbye to our beloved Tackett today.

He gained many friends with his various surprise visits on Talk To Me Tuesday.

He was a loving, talkative companion and we will miss him with all our hearts.

    I’m sorry to hear about your Tackett …. after a while, pets are furry children. I hope that you remember him with fond memories and know he’s waiting for you at Rainbow Bridge. Take good care today with a big ‘ole box of tissues. Hugs and prayers. su ‘-]

    My condolences. I have had many pieces of my heart cross the Rainbow Bridge with my fur babies. It’s so hard when they go but their love and companionship is so worth it. Hugs to you.

    So sorry you lost your beloved pet. I recently lost one of my adored cats. It is so very hard to say goodbye to these furry members of our families. I will be thinking of you.

    I just lost Boo Radley (To Kill a Mockingbird), a recue cat I’ve had for 7 years, and sympathize with your loss. We really do not realize what a presence they are in our lives until they are gone. As a child said at the burial of his pet: ” He was good while he lasted!” May the same be said of us when we pass on!

    My heart goes out to you and your family…loosing a beloved furry friend is just so difficult.

    Ah that is so sad! So sorry and I know how it is because we lost 2 pets in 2 years. My cat Roman was so sweet but so sick and we had to take care of it when he was 14 yrs. And my beloved Kristie-Dog went the following year. Again, so sorry!

    Heart hugs to you and the family on the loss of your sweet Tackett. I know you have many sweet memories to help your broken heart.

    Feeling very sorry for you as the loss of a pet is like losing part of ourselves. When the last of our cats died about 15 years ago we said we’d have no more due to my allergies. Now I love them vicariously- our neighbor has some who come and hunt on our property and I enjoyed Tackett and a bunny from someone’s site. So I do feel your loss. And male cats are just the sweetest things.

    Hi Jennifer,

    I’m so sorry to learn that Tackett went to the rainbow bridge. I for one will miss seeing him on TTMT. Hope you can find some comfort in the great memories he created for you. Love the picture of him, he was a gorgeous kitty.

    Tackett will be missed by many as we came to enjoy his presence in your videos. I am sure he is at peace and I wish the same for you and your family.

    Jennifer………..a year and a half ago in November I had to put my kitty Stuffy L. to sleep at 18.3 years old. His kidneys just went and he could not go on. A month later my last sibling a sister and my best friend went to sleep and went on to be with our ancestors. Needless to say I was devastated by both. I went to a psychic/medium and after my sister my kitty came through……….so………..I know I will be seeing him again on that Rainbow Bridge as you will be seeing Tackett oneday………….when your loved one passes their memory becomes a blessing……….
    Thinking of you………

    I hope that the memories of his love and your love for him make your heart smile at random times when you need it most. Sorry for your loss.

    Jennifer…I am so sorry for the loss of your best friend. I know how you feel as I too had to have my 13 year old best friend kitty Dramady Comma Donovan put to sleep after she had undergone chemo treatment for lymphoma and was getting better. Then a bug bite gave her a terrible sore near her tail and finally renal failure. She was such a sweet loving kitty and my best friend. Prayers for you as you mourn the loss and never say we don’t mourn our animal friends.

    So very sorry about Tacket, it is so hard. We had to have our precious TK who was 17 put down a few months ago and I still cry sometimes when I think of him. His wife, PiPi is 18 and still here, didn’t eat for a little while but is back to eating so have hope for more time with her.
    Have you ever seen the poem, the Rainbow Bridge? If not google it, and it is wonderful. Tacket will be waiting for you and is now young and healthy across the rainbow bridge.
