Please get together and do what you do best! Our sweet and handsome Gumpy is not doing well at all folks. He doesn't show interest in food, has trouble going to the litterbox (both literally weak legs, and doing anything once she puts him in there). Oh sweet Gumpy Goo! We're purring so hard for you sweetheart. Please purr, send POTP, do what you can everyone. We all love him so much. This is distressing to hear and I know you all love him as much as we do. This is that hard time of year again. My mom wrote about this in her blog last week. We have to purr extra hard for a miracle. PURRRR PURRRRR PURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!

WE LOVE YOU GUMPY!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!

My heart is sad...and yet...light...for I know Gumpy will not leave his mom, just the all so handsome form he occupied here for so long. We're purring for him...

and his mom. We send her so many little cat kisses and loves..

Mom fears this day with me, but we do not fear, we just live in the moment. We live with our angels around us and surrounding us, til they leap high as Ruffy would say, then with a cat-wheel, fly back with all due speed to the earth and the parent who loves them.

Dear Gumpys Mom, Jen....we send much much love-please trust the Magick that makes us, as Cats, Divine and Immortal. Gumpys not leaving anything behind but his form-and he will be with you forever...he will be back.

with love and light,
Bella and her Mom

Lacey, I just can't believe it! Our dear Gumpy is gone.

Dear Gump,
You have lived a long full life, a happy life. You had more friends and was admired by more kits than I could ever hope for. You were truly blessed life here on earth. Now it is time to have blessed life on the other side of the bridge. For you are free to run, jump and play till your little heart is content.

Fly free, fly fast, fly high! Love you forever and ever...wingman.
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

September 12th 2012 at 3:54 pm

Hi Zachy! I know! This has been an emotional day. My mommy just heard from his mommy Jen and believe me, it sounds like Gumpy had made his decision, it was his time to leave. But still...*sniff*. sigh. I can see clouds forming in the sky, looking like my Gumpy Goo waving down to us! Hi sweet Gumpy boy! Please have some fun in that kitten body you now have! No more pain!
Purred by: Zoe Kona Sunshine DG#2 (Catster Member)

September 12th 2012 at 4:31 pm

Awwww...look there's little Forrest! Gump, it's your name sake. How many cats here can say they have a kit named after them. Just you that I know of.

Zach is right, you were a deeply loved friend to so many of us and our hearts are breaking for you, your family and every bodies lives that you touched.

We will love you forever and ever Gump. When I see you at the bridge (sometime in the far future), I want a big hug and then I'll feel at home. Cause you are one of our oldest friends that made Catster feel like Home to us. Thank You.

For your Mom from my Mom, So many of us know what it's like losing a senior baby. It's such a hard time, all babies you will miss badly but to lose your best friend of 17 years is rough. I know cause that's how old Tux was. They have been there to see your highs and lows many times over. Been there to help you celebrate and there to love on you when you cry. If it wasn't for the happy cheerful memories of when that little kitten showed up in your life you would thank they had always been there.
I am so sorry, I wish my tears for you and Gump would help heal your heart faster but I know they won't. So take your time grieving. Cry, eat ice cream and cry some more. When you are ready to write about your pain and we will all be here for you. Promise.

Love,
Chris

Hi Lacey, thank you for writing in your diary about my sweet, sweet and precious Gumpy boy.

Thank you everyone for caring. I'll write more later, but there was enough going on to know it was time to help my little boy; he was already leaving and we needed to help him the rest of the way. I was fortunate that my vet had some time this afternoon and came out to help him pass at home. As difficult and painful this was, it was so much better to have him at home in my arms when he left me. Thank you for all the love and caring. I'll write more soon to let you know what was happening.

Love,
Jen

P.S Hey guys, I was 18 not 17! I turned 18 in June.
I went gently to the light this afternoon....

Love always,
Gumpy

Oh Gumpy! I miss you already but I know you are in a much better place. I'm so glad you got to pass peacefully in the loving arms of your mommy and with your family around. You deserve it sweetheart! Your poor body was just so tired. I really had a feeling you would be leaving us soon, I just did. And I've been sad about it but I am happy you're now back to your kitten self. So healthy and strong and as soon as you rest, you'll be zipping all over the place having a great time. We love you so much Gumpy! And we love your mommy too. Many purrs and hugs to her and your family.

Zoe, my mom has been crying all day. Her contact lenses seem to be permanently cloudy from all the tears. Seriously.
Thank you for your sweet message. It means a lot.

Gumpy your mom is going to have swelled up eyes tomorrow and for awhile. My mom couldn't even see straight for days. Please tell her to make sure and take care of herself! She deserves it now more than ever.

Lisa, thank you for caring and understanding and writing about my sweet baby boy today.

Thank you everyone. Awww, sweet message and picture from Kally Kat.

It's still hard to imagine him as an angel at the Rainbow Bridge. Hasn't fully sunk in yet.

Gump, your welcome. It came straight from our hearts.

Unfortunately, the tears flow for awhile, maybe she should switch to her glasses.
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

September 12th 2012 at 5:26 pm

You're very welcome Jen. It won't sink in for awhile, it really won't. It'll all feel like a dream. I don't know that it ever really sinks in fully. It's going to be so hard for a long time. Please know we are all here for you for however long that takes.

O sweetest Gumpy, you here now. Your mom be soo bootiful and loving. Like me you got to go to the bridge from home. What a special gift! I knows where there are some bootiful butterflies and love to be chased through fields of blue and yellow flowers. Then tonight, when it be real quietlike, you can tippy-toe home and give your mom snuggles while she sleeps. You can assure her that you will always be close by.

So sorry for your family's loss. My mom definately knows what your family must be going through as she had to say goodbye to me yesterday too. I had a very aggressive mouth cancer that was making it nearly impossible for me to eat and it was bothering me. Just know that Gumpy is in very good company and he was there yesterday to welcome me to the Rainbow Bridge when I made my journey.
