1. Oh Melodye, hugs, hugs, and more hugs. Thank you for sharing a little bit of Zoe with us. What a huge hole her leaving must have left behind. I’m so very sorry you had to say goodbye to such a wonderful friend.

  2. Oh, Melodye. I am so sorry to hear about Zoë and so happy that you both had each other. You are both big balls of love. There is no way around it. I am so sorry that she is gone. Lyra and I are sending you hugs.

  3. This whole photoessay is marvelous, and I love the line, “well-developed sense of leisure.” I hope that all the joy she brought you is comforting you now, at this sad time.

  4. Melodye, I am so very sorry. You must hurt so much right now. Zoë sounds like a wonderful companion of exactly the kind we need on our journey through life.
    My warmest thoughts are with you.

  5. I am your new friend–glad you found me, even gladder I found you. Of course, your post made me cry. Zoe was so beautiful and sweet. Our 16-year-old Xenia left this world in December so I know how you feel. It’s a wonderful tribute to a well-loved companion.

  6. Melodye, my heart aches for you. I know it hurts when you loose a pet. You are right when you said Zoe chose you. Let some time pass and Zoe will lead you to another lost one that needs exactly what you gave Zoe. She is saying to you now,”I know exactly what you need and want.”
    Hugs from Texas.

  7. I’m weeping. It feels so wrong you had to say goodbye to your dear friend, but so right that you found each other and had those years together. This is such a beautiful tribute, Melodye.

    I’m sending you a hug…

  9. {{{Hugs))) I cried when I read your beautiful tribute to Zoe. I’m so sorry for your loss. She was lucky to have claimed you for her own. And they do claim us!

    It sounds as if she was one in a million. Thank you for allowing us a peek at her life with you. I love the punch bowl shot. That’s so cat!

  10. Oh Melodye… I’m so, so, so sorry for your loss. Zoe is a beautiful girl and I’m so glad that you got to share time in this life with her. I know you gave her a warm and loving home and I know that she gave you all the love within her in return. I’m sorry for your loss, Melodye. It’s never easy to lose our companions. *HUGS*

  11. Zoe is gorgeous! What beautiful coloring and has! Oh, my, this post made me start to cry! I have 5 cats and one has not been doing well. Avoiding the inevitable for awhile . . .
