My sister's and niece's Bubba is gone, victim of a mauling. The vet couldn't do anything for him, mortally wounded as he was, except to relieve his pain and ease his passing.

He was a great little cat, just over two years old. He brought a great deal of joy to my sister and especially to my niece, and his loss has broken more than one heart...

... mine included.

So long, little Bubba. See you at the bridge. Say hi to Moose, Stonewall, Sam and Snowflake for me.

Now, how to heal a 12-year-old girl's broken heart?

Yes, Bubba has left us and has broken my heart but I know that I will see him again in heaven. Do animals go to heaven?

"Do animals go to heaven?"

I don't know, but where ever it is, that's where I want to go.

What a wonderful, beautiful kitty. How unbearably sad. God bless.

In that first picture, Bubba reminds me of Aslan from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. What a beautiful cat. I am so sorry for your loss.

Our sincerest condolences.
To lose such a precious young one is always a bigger shock than if he had led a good long life. But I believe our beloved pets go to the Eternal Playing Grounds where we will visit them after we pass on. And he'll be in good company: my dog who died last week loved cats. She'll sure take care of him...

Can it be heaven if animals don't go there? I for one don't think so.

Our condolences on the loss.

Oh no, we're all so sorry about Bubba. Purrs and Purrayers to all his people.

I once (when about 11 or 12) asked a minister if our pets went to heaven. His answer "would it be heaven without them?" So yes, I believe our pets will be waiting for us in heaven.
