I can hardly type this without tearing up, so I am going to keep it brief…

Eleven years ago, our cat Nuggs was born. I met him when he was four and he has been a big part of our family together for the last seven years (and with Jeff for a total of ten).

Yesterday, he passed away. And he will be missed more than I can say.

I love you Nuggs.

Brittni, I’m sorry. What a beautiful cat ♡♡♡ I don’t know if it actually helps, but I know how it feels. Losing a pet is so hard – and he’s been with you for such a long time, too! We’re thinking of you! xo Trud

Oh, Brittni, thinking of you today. That is the hardest 😐 Sending a big Seattle hug!


Thank you everyone for the very sweet comments today. I really appreciate the virtual hugs and stories shared.


My boy Juuso, the last one of the three boys, was put to sleep a little over a month ago. It was painful. It makes me cry if I think about it. So I’m truly sorry to hear this. It never gets easier.

Nuggs has the sweetest face. I’m so sad and sorry for your loss. I recently found out my dear kitty has kidney failure so I’m going through something similar and trying to love and appreciate her as much as I can before her day comes. I hope you had a chance to say goodbye. He will be with you always. Hugs. xo

Oh my goodness, I am so sorry for your loss. Our own sweet cat, also of eleven years, passed away just last week and it has been incredibly difficult for us to accept that he’s gone. Reading this set me into tears all over again. Nuggs looks like a very handsome kitty; I’m glad he had such a loving family. Warmest thoughts. <3


Oh no Brittni, I’m so sorry! 🙁 I know how hard it is, my heart goes out to you. Big hugs and love to you guys!


Brittni, there are, of course, no words fitting or worthy of Nuggs, but I’m thinking about you guys and am terribly sorry that he’s gone.

So sorry for your loss, Brittni. Thinking of you. xx


Oh, Brittni. I’m so SO sorry. Losing a pet is so hard and I hate that you’re going through this. Sending hugs and love your way. xoxoxo


I had a cat, a gray one actually, named Punkin Head leave us a few months ago. It is heart-breaking. I’m sorry for loss dear.



I love my Maine Coon Cats more than words can express and when my eight year old died suddenly of a heart arrhythmia (common I now know in Maine Coon Cats and other breeds) my entire family was devastated including the cats left behind. I’m so sorry for your loss.


I have known my cat all my life, she is sixteen and a half. We take her to the vet regularly because she has really bad lungs and he thinks she has a tumor 🙁

She is grey and fluffy and looks a lot like your cat. Let’s be strong together.


So very sorry about Nuggs – sending you hugs….


Really sorry to hear that Brittni- all my cats mean the world to me too.
