    I went outside as usual at 4am today to feed my birds and Scrapper,our guard cat.I fed the birds,but I didnt see Scrapper.I went out front hoping he didnt get hit by a car.


    I found his body on the sewer manhole out front of our house.His head was crushed and his neck broken.

    I picked him up and buried him in the backyard under his tree.

    I miss him soo much that it hurts.

    I never called him animal,or beast,or creature,but I treated him as an equal to me.I never have treated any animal I ever had as such.

    I will never ever forget you Pappy.

    Your pawprints will always be upon my heart. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm sorry for your loss. Animals have a funny way of walking into our lives and leaving pawprints all over our hearts when we have to say goodbye [​IMG]

    I am sorry. It isn't easy to lose an animal, especially one that you were really close to. [​IMG]

    So sorry. I've understand, as I lost one of my best buddies last year. A Golden Retriever. He was getting old. It's soo hard. [​IMG]

    PAWPRINTS ON MY HEART
    by Gabriel Mendoza

    I miss you
    I loved taking care of you
    But now God has that chore
    Hope the time that you were here was pleasant
    And I do hope to see you again soon
    Goodbye, til we meet again, Pappy

    You left deep imprints
    Pawprints on my heart
    I brought you in to work
    To be a farm helper
    But your love drove deep
    And your voice was so sweet

    Everywhere outside leaves a memory of you
    From being stuck on the roof
    To sleeping on the coops
    Your door at the backyard fence
    And your enjoyment of the garden

    I loved how you guarded us
    With your very life and soul
    Todays rain is meant for you
    And for our tears

    How can I look outside now?
    How can I see no cat greeting the door in the morning
    Or hearing your collar behind me
    Remembering when you were sleeping on the railing
    Always waiting for us to come outside
    I will never forget these times

    You left deep imprints
    Pawprints on my heart
    And thought I know I must move on
    It wont be the same without you
    You had no faults, none whatsoever
    And when its our time
    To walk on that rainbow road
    I pray, Scrapper, you will meet us there
    So you can see
    Those pawprints on my heart.

    I'm so sorry Pappy is no longer visible in your yard, but but I believe he is still there, watching over everyone. We all know he will always be in your heart. [​IMG]
