    Awe Jane...what can I say other than what I've told you earlier. I know words will never be enough when you are grieving for a pet and yet...I so understand how you feel that I will try anyway.

    I told you already that I lost 1 dog a few years ago to a snake bite well...on 2nd Jan, history repeated itself and my second dog got bitten by a tiger snake...thankfully I caught it on time and...although he was very sick and the vet's bill was enormous ($A4000.00) he survived. On 6th Jan he was stung by a wasp and had a bad reaction which involved another visit to the vet and...yes, another 100 bucks but...like you, I love him and was just glad that he's now ok. I do know how you feel about your loss...pets love you unconditionally and that's just so comforting. You'll never get over your loss sweety but...you'll learn to live with it someday I hope.

      Thank you, Hellon. You have been so sweet to me about losing my Milo. I really appreciate you reaching out.
      ...Two months later and I'm still sobbing myself to sleep a couple nights a week. Missing him is a constant ache :(

    This made me cry. I know how it feels to cry even months later after losing our 15 year old dog and then our other almost two year old other one. Just looking at their pictures sets it off for me. I hope it gets easier for you.<3

    Aw Jane, thinking of you! This is a beautiful poem in memory of Milo. It's hard to put into words though how much our pets become so much more than that, family... they hold a special place in our heart always.

      Yes, family. Milo was my baby. We used to joke about how he thought I was his wife. My little, adoring husband. Thank you, MA.

    Jane,
    I have sent this poem to Rosaura. She still mourns our Orange Maine Coon who disappeared one year ago on the 26th. Your poem gave her a great deal of crying and a wonderful sense of connection.
    Thank you.

      I'm so, so sorry about your cat. We were lucky (in a way) that someone found Milo's body and posted about him on a local site, otherwise I think I would still be looking for him... I hope you have been able to find some peace. Lots of love to Rosaura, to you, and to your big orange kitty on earth or in heaven.

    Pets not only become part of the family but also a part of us...and they become more then pets, they become a true friend no matter what...so sorry to hear about Milo and I understand this pain for not so long ago my family too lost a precious member. He was the best companion for walks, talks, play and when I cry he is there...touching write.

    Congrats on the win...take care.

    This poem is so sad Silvershoes, but a good tribute to your cat.

    I'm terrbily sorry for your loss. I truly understand the feeling of losing a beloved pet who was once a member of the family. I have two cats who I see happiness in them when ever I feel down. When I read through your poem it brought tears to my eyes just imagining them not having them in my life when they leave one day.

    I just added your poem to my favourite!
    keep writing!
    Reem.

    Judging comment:

    A sad piece, it's really powerful, although I cannot relate to the pain of losing a pet or a loved one, I still felt the author's sorrow, and it's heartbreaking. This piece just pulls on every one of your heartstrings.

    To have a fur-child pass on is devastating, this poem was very touching and had me in tears.

    Heart gripping and very touching, a powerful and well written poem by Jane this week!

    Heart-rendering one..
    I particularly loved reading these lines

    "It hasn't changed that you changed me,
    but it has changed that I'll never again be
    who you made me.

    Beautiful write. 5/5
