Yes, the sock picture looks like a black cat lying there. Totally amazing. And, this site is just a beautiful tribute to Monkey. Looks so much like my Little Guy. I love these black beauties. I forgot what else I was going to say last time but here I am trying again to post a comment and if it works..your tribute is all set. I did remember I wanted to comment on the sock picture and I did love the pictures of Monkey. LoveThem from the forum

I'm sorry that it took such a sad event to get to see Monkey. Your love for her tells me what a great cat she was. I believe I know how you feel since I lost my little dog just over 5 weeks ago. You did a great job with your tribute to Monkey.

Hi Jim, Just wanted to thank you so much for your beautiful note you left me on my Cleo's memorial page on Critters.com. It will be a month tomorrow that Cleo passed and I still cry everyday. I have Cleo's ashes back and feel like she is home again. It makes it a little easier. I love your site for Monkey and She was so beautiful like your other babys. I really enjoyed my visit. You are very creative and such a good soul. I wish you all the best. Thanks again, Susan

I am very sorry for the loss of your beloved baby Monkey. I know all too well the pain of losing a precious baby. I lost my dog Boni 10 weeks ago today to cancer and can relate sincerely to your comments about vets. My experince with them towards the end of Boni's illness was, for lack of a better word, "horrific." I was amazed by the sock picture. Just too much of a coincidence not to be a special sign from your beloved Monkey. Take care, mas-Boni's mom (from the rainbow bride forum)

R.I.P. sweet Monkey. Maybe you made friends with my beloved "Doll" who went to the rainbow bridge in Sept 06. I miss her so much, she was with me for 15 1/2 yrs. Guess I thought she would be around forever. That blue eyed little Siamese Doll was my life. I hope Im with her again. This is a nice site. Brenda aka Little Dolls Mom

Hi I came across your story today as I was adding a memorium for my gorgeous bullmastiff who had to be put to sleep this morning due to cancer' how do you even start to recover from such a loss? My heart feels smashed and I cant stop crying. Your little monkey was a beautiful cat and you must miss her beyond words. Just wanted you to know you are not alone in your grief I have a huge mastiff shaped hole in my life which will never be filled.You are in my thoughts Suzy xx

Hi Jim, Hi Monkey. Going to keep this short as I lost my last entry in cyber space somewhere. I am absolutely fascinated by the Sock and Tee picture, it really does look like a black kitty laying there, perhaps your Monkey. I hope that Monkey will send you lots of signs as encouragement that she is still very close. She's beautiful, and I think her honorary site here is lovely. Gabby, Little Man's Mummy, UK

Your Monkey reminds me so much of my Little Girl. Take a look at her in the Tributes Section under Little Guy had a Sister. They could have been twins. I had twin boys. Monkey and Little Girl could have been twin girls. They are all beautiful. And huggable. LoveThem

Dear Monkey's Daddy, your web page in honour of your Beautiful kitty is very touching. The "sign" I saw right away as your cat - I would never have thought it were socks. She is lying there - her feet/paws and her head are so obvious. It is very evident how much you loved her and like the rest of us who find comfort and understanding at the Rainbow Bridge website, it is a very slow and at times arduous journey - this journey of healing. Our babies are with us forever and we have to keep reminding ourselves that although we struggle with not having them with us in the physical sense, all we have to do is close our eyes and feel them with us, deep in our hearts. They will always be there. Blessings to you, Lucas's Mom

Hi: Wow, you are so right, I also see sign of Monkey in socks on floor....it is quite obvious to me. I am so sorry for you loss. I csn understand the feeling that maybe we could have done more or something else. I too went through same feeling with my Princess. Please know you loved her and she knew it and because of it, she was a happy little girl for many years. We do the best we can with what we are given. Life isn't always kind....but it goes on, although, it does go on differently. If you would like to talk about Monkey, please do so..She was a beauty and she loved you too..Your tribute is wonderful and thanks for sharing it with others. Take care, Anastasia

What a beautiful tribute site. I loved reading about Monkey. What a pretty girl. I just lost my baby kitty, Sam, on Thursday. He was 20, and I am in shock and so much grief. We grew up together, and I feel so lost. God bless you and your family. I wish you the best.

Monkey was so beautiful, dear. She was really so wonderful and I know this site can reflect that only partially as there is so much our babies do that couldn't be captured by a camera. But we know that :) Putting up a site for her is a wonderful thing to do to honor her. Congratulations. Try to be strong now. Keep your baby alive in your heart until you can meet again. I am doing the same...... A strong hug from Argentina, Virginia.

Hello Monkey's Daddy; Your tribute to your special one was beautifully done. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and memories of a wonderful companion with everyone in cyber-space. I lost my Mischief December 29, 2007 after almost 19 years together and I know how hard it is to let them go. I miss her terribly, as I am sure you miss your Monkey. The sock picture is very much like a black cat, and may have been a sign from your beloved. Have a peace-filled day.

Hi, I know just how special your beautiful girl is to you. I am so sorry that you have had such a huge loss in her passing, but know that you are lucky in being blessed with the love of one who is so perfect, sweet, innocent and true... her love... complete and unconditional is still yours to treasure.. I am sure that the socks are a little message to you! Take care, Kerry

Hi, My name is Jane. I love the site you created for your Monkey. I lost two dogs within 7 months. The pain is unbearable. Fluffy (the one passed later) left me about 6 months ago. The pain is still SO FRESH. But just thinking that the deceased pets are now in a much safer place with the Creator can make us feel better. Take care, Jane

What a beautiful tribute to your baby Monkey. I am so very, very sorry for your loss of this beautiful girl. The socks thrown on the pile like this definitely look a lot like her. She was and is very beautiful, all your kids are. I have a 18 year old cat who had 4 kittens when she was 3 years old. I kept them all, I lost two of the "kittens, one of them my JJ, my little soulmate I lost last year and here we are a year and a hlaf later and I still miss him so much. I know what you are going through. Time, however, will teach you how to deal with the pain and will replace the pain with the fond memories that you have from all the years spent with this beautiful little soul.

Your site is lovely.... Monkey was indeed a loved baby. My precious little boy Obiwan who is 15, was diagnosed with terminal cancer just today and it is best for him that I don't let him suffer. Friday the vet will come to help him find peace. I am so sad and feel so guilty that I didn't know sooner he was sick. Even today he is wanting to be petted and trying to eat his favorite food. It helps to know that there is someone that understands how much we love our babies and how much it hurts to know there is nothing more we can do for them. God bless you.

Dear Monkey: You were a beautiful little girl and so loved by your Daddy. He misses you terribly and that sign of the socks is sure to show him that you are still close at heart...it looks just like you were there...I bet you are...you are his little angel and watch over him. You were a sweet little one and brought much joy to him and it was a pleasure seeing all your videos and pictures. Maybe, you can be friends with my Princess until we all meet again. Hugs to you...

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It is so clear that you really love Monkey and I know that Monkey really loves you. I lost my dear little friend Stuart (deaf ferret), almost five years ago. I still love Stuart with all my heart and soul and I know that we will be together again. I believe in heaven, and without my dear little friend Stuart, there can be no heaven. GOD BLESS YOU AND MONKEY. STUART'S DAD RICHARD

Hi there I just lost my 18 year old kitty in July. I grew up with that cat. I got her when I was 11 and lost her when I was 29. It was and still is the hardest thing to deal with. I miss her more and more every day. I'm sorry for your loss and commend you remembering your Monkey in such a nice way :)

Just dropped by to say condolences on you're beautiful Monkeys sad anniversary. Its true what you say that its sometimes just one particular pet that buries themselves into our souls. I have had pets before but none of them touched me like my little Phoebe did. I see that you are no longer on the ilovedmypet website, however I think you have given Monkey a great memorial with this site. Don't be beating yourself up over past regrets with Monkey. You can see from what you have written here that Monkey was loved totally by you and that Monkey knew that. I will light a penny candle in Dublin today for Monkey. Again, condolences from Ireland. Phoebe's family.

Your tribute site to Monkey is wonderful. I laughed at the antics of you kitties, Thanksgiving Day dinner is so cute, Got a fry story hystical and touching. I had four kitties also. Widget passed in her sleep Oct 2, 2008. I still have Precious & Sam (Sam looks just like you Buddy). Like you I love them all, but there was someting so special about Oliver. He was the most loving. He would come whenever I called his name no matter where he was and always slept by my side. I miss him so so much. Thank you for sharing your beautiful Monkey and your other fur babies stories with us.

Thank you for your memories of your Monkey cat. I especially liked the bedtime ritual ones. My Annie who just died went to bed with me every night of our nineteen years together and when my husband died she climbed on my chest over my heart every night for years after his death.

Hello. I came across your website by seeing your memorial of Monkey on pets-memories.com First of all - lovely website. It's wonderful and touching that you took the time to create this website for Monkey. Although it's not what you may have imagined, it's beautiful. Also, I can really understand where you're coming from with the whole vet being your worst enemies. My dog, Teddy was diagnosed with Diabetes and two weeks later he passed. It was sudden, really and at no time did they tell me he was that gravely ill. I talked about saving money for treatment and they never said, "well, listen, there's not gonna be any time", although I slowly realised his condition worsening. Also, o matter how much I cried there in the examination room, I felt like nobody could help or begin to understand. Vet care is so expensive - it's basically a crime. Vet prices is cruelty against animals. Just cause I'm not rich doesn't mean I don't want to help my little baby. It's awful feeling hopeless because you can't afford treatment and you so desperately want to help your baby out. I think vets become desensitized over time or something and I always feel like they judge you for not being able to treat your pet. Nonetheless... this is in the past now. You said you're not good with words, but you are. I felt like you were talking directly to me and I felt what you feel. I don't believe in reincarnation - or heaven either (although during these times I wish I had faith, it'd probably make it easier), but I also feel like sometimes an animal can have human-like behaviour. Sometimes they are more human than we are. I also knew my dogs every expression and emotion. You said Monkey would tap you when you were playing games, etc, that's so sweet. For me, Teddy would put his paw on my leg when I would cry, it was exactly like what a person would do. I just miss him so much. Lastly, I just wanted to say, don't feel guilt and don't blame yourself. I know how easy it is to start hating yourself and feeling like you could have done more, but in the end, the poor thing would still have to pass. I wish that animals could live as long as we do. I wish Teddy could have passed and then later that day I would have too, so I wouldn't feel this utterly lonliness every moment of my day. I am truly, deeply sorry for your loss. Monkey sounded like such a special girl. I think we need to cherish the memories and realise we gave our pets the best life possible (as cliche as that is and as much as you're probably sick of hearing it). Imagine if she would have been unlucky and been mistreated and never known true happiness. You should praise yourself for being so kind and loving towards her. Many people see animals as animals, but it's great that there are people like you who see them as people, as family, as a part of you. I apologise for writing so much. Ever since my Teddy passed on October 14, 2009 I have been a mess. I am constantly emotional and cannot find closure. I spend my days online reading animal memorials, trying to get closer to people who feel the same way I do. None of my friends have ever felt so close to their pet. Teddy wasn't a pet, he was my equal, maybe even my superior. I am just lonely. Like you, I also spent more than half my life with Teddy. I got him when I was 9 and he passed now when I am 22. Life is crappy now - there's no better way to explain it. Your website really touched me. I just think it's great and I hope Monkey is happy wherever she may be. Take care. Kind regards, Tamyra.

Thanks Tibby's mum. And thanks to all who have left a comment. I see Monkey pretty regularly in my dreams. I started having so many I started keeping a log. So far I've had over 75 dreams I've documented. Don't know what it means but sometimes I think shes trying to tell me something. I'll be having a dream about nothing in particular and all of a sudden, theres Monkey! Then the rest of the dream ends up being about us usually. I haven't been updating the pages like I should be. Buddy and Mommy have passed in the past year, its just me and Ashley now, and she's in heart failure so been pretty busy caring for her. She eats like a horse so that's a blessing. She's been weak in the hind legs for over a year now though. It all started with hyperthyroidism in July '09 then an emergency visit to the vet around the first of the year and another in March. Shes been pretty stable since then though, I think I might have the meds dialed in now. Just taking it day by day I guess.
