Roger
1999-2008

Roger, my beloved cat of nine years, died in his sleep last night. He’s been sick for a long time, so it wasn’t entirely unexpected, but still I’m heartbroken today. It hurts so much to lose him. I hope he’s at peace now, after a long struggle with diabetes. He was my little angel, and I’m going to miss him.

Here’s to Roger

Oh sweetie I’m sorry. I went through this recently too, and it hurts a lot. Sending you warm hugs. I know you loved him very much.

Charlotte, I missed this yesterday. I’m so sorry to read the news.

I know it’s just as sad when it’s expected as unexpected, but I’m sure your little family will take care of each other.

I’m so sorry. <3

It’s always hard to lose a member of the family.

I’m so sorry. <3

It’s always hard to lose a member of the family.

*hugs* I’m so sorry to hear that. You have my deepest sympathy.

Charlotte,

I am so sorry. I would have said so sooner, but I just saw. I know what it is like, but as you said, it was not unexpected (that, would have been worse). Our pets are like our children expect that they are always dependent on us throughout their lives (some kids are that way too, 45 years old and still living at home). He was blessed to be with you and the reverse was true too.

Peace,

Bear

Oh, I am so sorry Charlotte. Words can’t even express, but I understand.

::huge hugs::

AWw! I’m sorry. =( I just lost my dog recently so I understand how heartbreaking it can be to lose a pet. =(

Oh hon, I am so sorry! I must have missed this when you originally posted it. You have my sincerest condolences to you and your family in this time of grief *hugs*

Roger looks so much like my Nadine. She is 16 years old and still looks like a 3 year old. She is without a doubt MY cat. She will come to me over anyone else or even food. My other cat Ozgur died last year. He was the same age. My 6 yr. old boy still has bouts of crying over his lost friend. I posted a photo in his room to help make him feel better. He has been worried that Nadine will die soon. 16 is pretty old for a cat.

I will be very lonesome when she goes. It is only a matter of time. She is the only one (aside from my 2 yr old and Playstation2) that thinks I can sing.

Sorry for the loss. I can relate.

Sad

As sad as it is to lose Roger, it’s probably worse because it happened so close to Mother’s Day.

Roger won’t be able to be extra-nice to you a week from Sunday because he knew that it was Mother’s Day. Nor will he be able to be extra-nice to Mike on June 15th because he knew it was Farther’s Day.

Roger thought you were his Mommy and Mike was his Daddy (as Ally and Janie think you’re their parents).

I’ll never forget how he and Janie once went after your Angel Food cake. The photos brought a smile to my face!

Sorry to hear about Roger. They leave such a hole when they die.

I am so very sorry, Charlotte. I know how much you loved him.

my wishes are with you. our neighbour is putting their dog down tomorrow and has asked if i would take a few photos for her- its so sad to lose a big part of your family…

I’m so sorry to hear about Roger. My first introduction to your photography was when Roger and Janie got into the angel food cake. Those pictures still make me smile. He was such a beautiful boy.

i’m very sorry. i’m rather glad he passed away in his sleep though, it’s one of the most peaceful ways to pass away.

*hugs*

Dear Charlotte, my condolences. He’s in a cat paradise right now, for sure.

I’m so sorry. It’s a beautiful picture of him.

I’m so sorry. It’s a beautiful picture of him.

he’s at peace now

I’m crying with you, Charlotte, but I’m quite positive that Roger is at much better place now.

I know, exactly what you’re going through. I lost my Miss Polly last summer after fifteen years. It was very sudden though. Not that that way is any better or worse. Grieve your angel as much as you can, and be thankful for the nine beautiful years you had together. You’ll be in my prayers tonight.

so sorry to hear about your loss.

Sorry to hear about Roger, its horrible to lose a pet.

I’m so sorry about your kitty. πŸ™

Oh, I’m so sorry! At least it was peaceful and you didn’t have to make any decisions about it. Poor Janie, too.

I’m so sorry Charlotte. He was gorgeous!!

Was he the kitty that licked out the cake bowl and got his fur all stuck in it, or was that your other kitty? I remember that so well. So cute.

I am sorry about your kitty. πŸ™

Oh Charlotte. I’m so very sorry. I know how much kittylove means to us all and I’m thinking of you.

I remember the day you adopted Roger and Janie…and playing with them in your office at Caliber. ***hugs***

Hi Charlotte, I’m such a fan of your work and read your blog all the time. Just wanted to send my condolences and let you know I know the pain of losing a furry family member. It is tough but at least he went peacefully. I’ll keep you in my thoughts during this tough time.

I am so so sorry. I feel your pain. Poor kitty, but he is romping around in kitty heaven now, diabetes free. He’s a handsome cat. I’m glad he went peacefully.

=(
Sorry for your loss.
It does make it easier to know that he is free of pain and he went in his sleep…yes?

I am so, so sorry.

My thoughts are with you and Mike.

So sorry to hear about Roger.

*big hugs* I’m so sorry for your loss.

I’m sorry to hear about Roger, Charlotte.

I still fondly remember the pictures of Roger and Janie getting at the Angel Food Cake. You have such a way with photographing animals as well as people.

Light, my heart aches for you. Please accept my sincere condolences on your loss.

Awww… I’m so sorry! Losing a pet is always difficult =(

Oh baby. I’m so sorry! Thats just awful and there’s nothing that can fix it. (hugs)

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. He was a real cat of character. You can see it in his posture.

*HUG* Sorry to hear he passed on. Now – get another one! Or TWO! πŸ™‚

I’m so very sorry πŸ™ He was so beautiful!

What a wonderful picture.

You don’t know me, but I know how much it hurts to lose a beloved pet. I’m really sorry πŸ™

Oh, i’m so sorry! He looks just like my sweet Jeeves (in icon) who passed away last September. I feel your pain…

I am so sorry.

I have to say that some of my favorite photos you’ve ever posted have Roger in them here

I think I’ll have angel food cake tonight.

Thinking of you and sending hugs.

Good rest, fuzzbutt. πŸ™

xoxoxoxoxo

much love to you and mike and roger

Light, my heart aches for you. Please accept my sincere condolences on your loss.

I am SO very sorry for your loss.

Our little fuzzy friends are so much a part of our families, and it’s so sweet of you to honor him in this way.

I just thought of a quote that was on a card that I received after my dad passed away. It said, “I think of heaven as a garden where I shall find again all those dear ones who made my world.” It seems so fitting for a kitty, doesn’t it?

Oh, I’m so sorry. He seemed like such a dear.

He was a very handsome boy!

I’m so sorry, Charlotte. He was beautiful, and I know you and Mike will miss him like crazy. Glad to know he went peacefully and is not hurting anymore. Sending my love your way.

πŸ™ awe, it’s so hard to lose a loved one like that.
myself & mine wish you well and hugs and all that πŸ™‚

i’m so sorry πŸ™

Sorry for your loss, pets are so hard to let go of. But think about it, Roger and our kitty Fluffy are probably having a whale of a time partying it up in kitty heaven with all the tuna they could ever dream of. *hug*

*hugs*
i’m so sorry :[ he was beautiful.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Our feline companions are so dear to us, aren’t they?
We’ve had a couple of close calls with our Ebony and I dread the day he crosses the rainbow bridge too.
HUGS

What a wonderful picture.

You don’t know me, but I know how much it hurts to lose a beloved pet. I’m really sorry πŸ™

Sad day

Thanks everyone, its a sad day. Even the dog is anxious, she doesn’t understand yet, but she knows that we’re sad. His sister also isn’t sure whats going on, so we’re keeping an eye on her today – not sure what to expect.

I guess Roger is in cat heaven, chasing mice and birds. Which, I guess, is mouse and bird hell? Not sure how a mouse can be evil enough, so Char thinks it’ll be mouse and bird simulations instead.

Good bye Roger, you will be missed…..

Deepest condolences. Hope your family feels better soon.

I am so very sorry to hear about your loss. Hopefully he’s at peace now.

I’m so sorry Mike and Charlotte!
I’m sending big hugs from the other side of the country!

I’m so sorry for your loss πŸ™

*hugs*

oh..I’m so sorry for your loss…

Oh no! I’m so sorry. πŸ™ It can be really hard to say goodbye to pets.

i’m so very sorry for your loss. now he’ll be watching over you and your family πŸ™‚

My condolences, Charlotte. I’ve been really worried about Luna lately, too. Though she’s not sick or anything, she is getting up there in age. I’m very sorry for your loss.

I’m so sorry. I had to put my 15 year old cat down last summer and it still hurts a lot. I wouldn’t wish that feeling on anyone. I’m sure you and Mike gave him an amazing home and lots of love.

I’m so sorry πŸ™ Roger looks very similar to my Salem. *hugs*

I am so sorry…I have been contemplating getting another cat once I get moved to Washington… but it was so hard for me to lose mine a few years ago (to diabetes also).

Beautiful photo of him btw.

I’m so sorry. Our pets are wonderful additions to our lives and I know he will be sorely missed in your home.

< hugs >

Aw, I’m sorry! That stinks. We had a cat that looked just like Roger that died due to diabetes complications as well. It was so sad. I’m mentally sending you hugs.

He was a very handsome boy!

I am so sorry.

****hugs****

I am so very, very sorry. I know how much it hurts.

I’m so sorry, Charlotte. He was beautiful, and I know you and Mike will miss him like crazy. Glad to know he went peacefully and is not hurting anymore. Sending my love your way.
