The Giz is Gone

Gizzy went to the Rainbow Bridge this afternoon. He had to be helped. The vet said he was probably down to 5 pounds. She also felt a tumor that was not there 2 months ago. Gizzy had intestinal cancer.

This is probably Mom's all-time favorite picture of him. It hangs on the wall of her office at her day-hunting place, right next to a few pictures of Mr Karate. He was a little over 1 year old when it was taken.

There are lots of leaky eyes here. It's gonna be really lonely for me without him.

We're going to be off-line for a few days.

We've asked our ones who came before - T-Gray, Jordan and Payton to welcome Gizzy to the Bridge. Our eyes are leaking and we want to send our deepest heartfelt sympathies to you and Jasmine and your Mom and Mr. Karate. You did the kindest and hardest thing for him.
With many gentle purrs and prayers - we loved Gizzy!

In some ways Gizzy is just as famous as his sister. We'll be saying prayers for you and Jasmine and Millie. I'd say poor Gizzy, but he's free and healthy now playing at the bridge waiting for his mom and his sisters.

I'm sorry to hear of Gizzy's passing. It is never easy to lose someone we love. Remember, love never really dies. Gizzy will be waiting for you at the Bridge. And, you'll always have the memories of the times you spent together until then.

Tara said...

I felt like Gizzy had become the big brother I never knew (Baby also went to the Bridge from intestinal cancer). Mom knows how hard that was, she did the same act of love for Baby. He is with all of our lost loved ones now.

Purrs, thoughts, and tears...

Daisy said...

Oh no. Goodbye sweet Gizzy, I am going to miss you a lot. I know you are happy and playing at the Bridge now. I am sending my deepest sympathies and purrs to your family.

I am going to treasure my Gizzy quilt even more now, because it was made with love for Gizzy. And I will think of Gizzy whenever I am resting on my beautiful quilt.

Oh, we're so so sorry for your loss. Gizzy was a very special boy and we loved to read about him.
It is little comfort now, but he knows how much you love him to help him on his journey. He took that love with him over the bridge. We're thinking of all of you and you're in our prayers. We're very sorry for your loss.

Mattingly said...

Oh Millie we are so sorry for you, Jasmine, your Mom and Mr. Karate. It has become very apparent to all of us that Gizzy was a very special kitty, and I know I will miss reading stories about him and seeing new pictures. I'm glad he is not uncomfortable and sick anymore, but I know that doesn't make you miss him any less. Millie I think he was very happy to have you around in his last months. You kept him young and happy. We'll be thinking and praying for you.

Oh Lynne, I am so sorry. I've told you before how much I loved Gizzy even though I've never had the pleasure of actually meeting him.

No matter how much you know it will happen soon, it is never, ever, any easier to take.

Goodbye Gizzy-boy. Thank you for befriending Millie in her need. You were a gentle-cat extraordinaire.

So, KC's friend, Bear, is at the Bridge, and now Millie's friend Gizzy. This has been a tough week :-(

We are so sorry for your loss. One of the cats who went before me had the same thing. It is soo hard to bear the pain, but think of this: Gizzy had a great new sister to cuddle with in his last months, and he had the love of many beans and a very good life with his beanmom.

The Meezers said...

Oh Lynne, I am so very sorry about Gizzy. He was a very special boy and he will be greatly missed by you and Jasmine and Millie. We told Trixie and Norton and Ralphie to look for him and show him around. You all will be together again one day, dancing over the Bridge and into forever. Until, Gizzy will never really be gone, he will still be in your hearts and watching over all of you.

When my momlady came home from her hunting work I was nappin' on my Gizzy quilt. We will always call it the 'the Gizzy quilt'. Gizzy has really become part of our home.

We will miss seeing pics of him sleeping with Millie. I'm sending my best purrs to help him find his place at the bridge. I know that there are lots of great kitties that will be there with him and he'll be OK.

To his momlady, Mr Karate, Jasmine and Millie I'm sending even more purrs and headbutts. He will be missed, but I'm sure his spirit will always be with you giving a smile just like one of the quilts named in his honor.

Millie, Jasmine, and Lynne,

I was so sorry to hear that you had to help Gizzy over the bridge today. It is never easy to help one we love on that final journey, but I often think of it as a last gift of love. It hurts our hearts so to say goodbye, but we also know in our heart of hearts that we are taking them away from the pain they are in. You 3 are in my heart. I know that Gizzy loved you very much, and knew how much he was loved in return.

With leaking eyes,

My eyes are leaking so much that it is hard to see the screen. I am so sorry that Gizzy went to the Rainbow Bridge, but a little bit happy that he is now healthy and young again and playing in fields of grass and flowers. My little Gretchen also had intestinal cancer. I pray that she and Gizzy will have many happy hours together. Millie and Jasmine, please stay close to your Mom. She needs you very badly right now. All of you have my very deepest sympathy.

We are all very sad here, it has been a very difficult week our thoughts and prayers are with you and Millie, Jasmine and Mr.Karate. Here is a passage I like a lot and I hope it will make you think of Gizzy...


"Sometimes in life, you find a special friend. Someone who changes your life just by being a part of it. Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop. Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world. Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it. This is forever friendship. When you're down and the world seems dark and empty, your forever friend lifts you up in spirit and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times. If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows. If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you and cheers you on. Your forever friend holds your hand and tells you that everything is going to be okay. And if you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not worry. You have a forever friend, and forever has no end."

Rest in peace little Gizzy know that you were sent from the loving arms in this world to the next...

An angel sent from heaven
That's really what you were
We miss everything about you
Your heart was warm and pure

But the angels only lent you
To us for those sweet years
And now they called you home again
And we are left with tears

And memories to hold on to
That somehow get us through
We feel your presence everywhere
In everything we do.


Sweet kitty. we will miss you
Though time shall ease the pain
And someday in the future
We shall meet again.

The years I've worn you,

Be well; be free.
I know that you're always near,
forever loving me.

Someone sent this to me when I had to help Rusty to the Bridge a few years back:

"I explained to Saint Peter
I'd rather stay here,
Outside the Pearly Gates.

I'll be very quiet,
I won't make a sound -
I'll just sit quietly, and wait.

I'll be here,
playing with my little ball
However long you might be...

I'd miss you so much,
if I went in alone -
It wouldn't be heaven for me."
