So sorry for your loss. A pet is a very special part of your family. Just remember all the wonderful memories you have shared and the great life your pet has had being with you. He will be welcomed at the Rainbows Bridge by all of our wonderful pets who have gone before him.
Sorry about you loss. I have a calico cat I've had for about 13 years and don't know what I'd do without her. She was a tiny kitten some heartless bum sat her out and luckily, we found her and took her in.
I wouldn't trade her for a cruise ship! The day after we got her my mother died so that kitten was a source of comfort to me. As she's getting up there in years, I worry about something happening to her. She wasn't feeling too well a couple weeks ago and I had to take her to the vet for a check up. They did blood work and an exam and pronounced her fit so hopefully she'll be around with me for several more years. First cat I have ever seen that will crawl under a blanket and sleep. I keep a Mexican blanket folded on an ottoman in front of the couch in the family room and sometimes when she gets cold, she'll crawl under that blanket and stay for as much as 2-3 hours at a time.It's funny to watch her get under that blanket an curl up.
Again, I'm sorry for your loss.
Kat, I'm so sorry for your loss, he's a beautiful cat, and he had many good years.
When I saw your post title, I thought that Dan Akroyd had died. Was Elwood named after the Blues Brothers character?
Yes he was named after the Blues Brothers. As a kitten his fur looked almost blue. Thank your everyone for your kind words. As a kitten Elwood would fetch his ball and bring back to me to throw. He was a crack up, my dogs don't fetch. He loved water he would play in the bathtub; we would put the water on a slow stream and he would bat at it.

I am so very sorry for your loss of Elwood, Katlady. I'm sure, like Fran was and I still am, our pets are our children. Please be comforted that he has crossed that Rainbow Bridge where there is no pain, no hunger or thirst and where the sun always shines brightly.
You can also take comfort from not only his long life but a rich one as well.
I'm sorry to read of your loss---
Thoughts and prayers going out to you---
Taking it a day at a time with my little dog Jasper who turned 17 on Feb 8
