Saying Goodbye to a Special Cat

October 10, 2013

Beverly and Ken North of Kansas (no relation to this writer) recently lost their beloved cat, Skeezix.  According to Beverly, “Skeezix was a wonderful example of how special a rescued pet can become.”

Below is a goodbye letter that Beverly wrote to Skeezix and read to him as he left his world.

A Goodbye to Skeezix

In Memory of Skeezix


Dear Skeezix,

It’s time to say “good bye.”

It’s been the best 8 years of my life.

You’ve been there for me in my times of need.

But, the time has come that I must let go of my wonderful friend, Skeezix.


I don’t want to let you go.

I need you as much as you needed me 8 years ago.

You have paid me back a thousand fold for saving your life.

Now, you are ill and there is nothing I can do to make you feel better.


You have given me so much love and comfort.

I wish I could find a way to comfort you in your time of need.

I love you so much——more than any cat who has ever lived with me.

You can never be replaced and I don’t intend to try.


I can’t stand to see you suffer.

The choice I am making for you will give you the peace you deserve.

I will miss you more then you can ever imagine.

My only hope is that someday we will see each other once again.


Good-bye my beloved friend.
