We will miss you, Bellie.

This is a picture of Belle as a kitten.

It has been pretty sad around our house lately, as last week we had to have our little Belle put to sleep. She was only three years old. It is amazing how much you can grow to love the pets that live with you....I feel like there is a giant "Belle-shaped" hole in my heart now. But we are so very thankful for the short time we had with her. She was the sweetest little cat on earth.

Ohhh. What a sweet photo (and I normally don't respond to animal photos!) I am sorry about your cat! :(

Dad and I are so sad with you, we certainly understand the pain of losing our pets, they bring such unconditional love to our lives, they are so innocent and sweet, we are sorry and will miss her also.

We do look forward to her being on the front of our Birthday cards!

I'm so sorry for your loss! I have two cats myself and would just fall to pieces if I lost one of them. I really am so sorry.

We are so sorry to hear about Belle. We know how hard it is to lose a furry family member. Pets are truly part of the family and an important part of our lives. Hugs to you both.

Love, Aunt Margaret

My heart breaks for you.

Last year (on my birthday, no less) I had to put down my cat of 16 years. She was so precious to me and "the love of my life", as I always called her.

Unconditional love is such a wonderful thing to experience, isn't it? :) All the best to you.
