Goodnight Sweet Prince,My Little Treasure


My sweet Treasure crossed his Rainbow Bridge tonight.
Bit by bit his body just started to shut down.
Improvement in one area was accompanied by a deterioration
in another. He would rally for a very short time,
then relapse.
There was no hope of any meaningful recovery.
After a long visit at the hospital, I made the painful
decision to let him go. 


I will miss you by my pillow and will miss the 
licks you gave me when I scratched your chin.

Thank you for being a part of my life sweet boy.
We will miss you.

Treasure
1997- 2016

I am so heartbroken reading this news. I am very very sorry for your loss . Although I know 19 years seem like a lengthy time, it went by in a blink of an eye. It's never long enough. It's so hard because their lives are so much shorter than the time we wish to spend with them. I keep you in my prayers, and say we will miss you deeply sweet Treadure.

Oh Nancy, I'm so sorry to hear this sad news. When I read Treasure was not well, I believed he'd get better. Still can't believe he left for the Bridge.
Though what a wonderful life he had. Very long long life for a kitty, and he always looked so content and comfy. I know that doesn't make pain go away but I hope happy memories will always fill your heart. He was a treasure just like his name. Goodnight to sweet Treasure. xoxo

Katie Isabella said...

Treasure, I am deeply saddened by your loss. You are in my heart forever more. I will miss your face and seeing you here but I will always have your memory to cheer me when I visit your siblings. Nancy, the pain is terrible and sharp and the thing to remember in those times is all the love and care ...especially the love, that you gave your precious boy. And he loved you right back. He always thanked you for your great love and care of him. I do too.

da tabbies o trout towne said...

Godspeed Treasure; we are truly sorry. We send hugs and loves too your mom and family and cousins. We know your mom has seen this before and we hope her does not need to again for a long time; she understands what we mean; we hope you've found a sun filled cloud with your own patio and maybe with a view of a squirrel or two

St Francis said, "Come little one, there is nothing more I can do for
you here, don't be afraid" and St Francis gently picked up Treasure and carried him into the kingdom of heaven.....when the little cat looked around, he realized everything St Francis told him on his journey was true ~~~~

heaven was beautiful beyond what mere words could express ♥

and Treasure saw there was no pain, suffering, fear, sickness, hunger, thirst or sorrow, until he looked down and saw the family and friends he had left behind....and for a very brief moment, the little cat too, was filled with sorrow.

then St Francis bestowed Treasure with a set of wings and said, "Use them to return to your family, when their need is the greatest, as nothing can separate your bond of love. Hold each other in your hearts and your memories, until you are reunited again at heaven's door."

and when the little cat tried on his wings, he knew nothing was impossible...... when there is love

♥♥♥♥♥ to you always buddy; love; boomer, dai$y, tuna, and dude & sauce too

Seville at Nerissa's Life said...

I'm so very, very sorry to hear about Treasure. My heart breaks for you.

Treasure is now romping through the vast Heavenly nip fields, chasing butterflies. Perhaps with Nissy! Together, they'll be having such fun. And every now and then, Treasure will look down from those nip fields, and remember how much love you gave him. What a wonderful life he had with you. What a loving family you are. Until we all meet up, again...

Purrs,
Seville

Karla said...

Oh dearest Nancy....we are so sad at the cozy cottage that your precious boy Treasure failed so quickly and left for the rainbow bridge. I know you will treasure his sweet memory and that it will comfort your ache in your heart. Treasure looks so very much like our Lion and his kitten that have lived in our garden for over 8 years now....this evening I went out on the patio to freshen up the kibble and for the very first time the kitten stayed on his heated pad and did not run from me...I knew it has to be for a special reason....I know Treasure told him to stay put and all will be well. You see, I believe that he did indeed leave that 'treasure' for my heart...you special boy!
Much love at this sorrowful time from your family at the cozy cottage

Mariodacat said...

I'm so very sorry for you loss. We did not know Treasure, but we know the pain of losing a precious furbaby. I wish we would have known him. But my humans know what it is like to lose a precious furbaby. May he live forever in your hearts. M (my mom) sends big HUGS to you.

Jeanne Foguth said...

The physical body might have given out, but I believe that the spirit is eternal. Thus, I consider my beloved Rom to have transformed from my personal' best cat ever' into my guardian angel. And a fine angel he is... I wager that Treasure can become a great one, too

When the Cat is Away said...

:( We're so very sorry that Treasure isn't among us anymore. We were thinking a lot about him. You made the most gentle and generous gift one can ever give to a loved one - to let go, and to relieve from pain and struggle.

Even though Treasure was old, and didn't pass unexpecetedly, one is never fully prepared for death.

YOu and your family are in our thoughts.

Timmy Tomcat said...

I know dear Treasure is looking down with love in his eyes and he will be visiting in all of our dreams to tell of the wonders over the Rainbow Bridge.
Fly Free dear friend

Kitties Blue said...

Thanks for visiting and leaving your very kind comment on our Fiona's post. What a wonderful long life Treasure had. I don't know if that makes it easier when they slip away. I have had a few kitties who have lived such long lives, and I think if they are not sick for any length of time, we still know their time is probably short. Every one of our fur children is unique, important and precious. We grieve your loss with you and send many prayers. Healing and grief are such a long processes, and we hope God will bless you with the support you need to cope and heal. XOCK, Mom Janet, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

John Bellen said...

Treasure was indeed treasured, and though he was nineteen, and old for a cat, it was still too short a time to spend with those he loved. I'm sorry he had to go. Godspeed, Treasure.
