Our boy is home xxxxx

Last night I was on nights and had the worst shift ever.. This morning we got a phone call from our vets to say jasper is back come and take him home. We went and collected his ashes and he is now home where he belongs...

    Barrie wanted this urn for his ashes because he loved to see him sleeping like this..
                                            In his spot in front of the fire. Back home and with us forever..
                               I captured a few pictures shortly before we lost Jasper and they were taken through the laptop screen, Another favourite place sat behind my head on the chair back. I thought it a fitting picture for today..
                               It has been so hard but today Barrie said that he would not be as lonely now when I was at work because Jasper was home..

                    I will be going through all the wonderful comments and visiting everyone very soon.
                                          Love to everyone  Carol   xxxx

Oh, Carol, we're glad Jasper is home. We know he is so missed! Even with other furries in a home, when one leaves, the emptiness is painful. Love and hugs.

We almost cried over this post. That is a beautiful urn. He was well loved - and we aren't sure one ask for more than that out of life.

(((hugs))) to you, Carol, Barrie and Jasper.

It definitely is good when they come back home and I simply love the sleeping kitty. Seeing cats curled up has always comforted me, too.

Please take care and know we understand completely how you feel. No matter how many words are out there to comfort, there's nothing like having a loved one close when no words are necessary.

Hope your hearts begin to heal,
Julie, Tinker, Anastasia and Chopin xx

It is nice when they are home. My dogs came home in nice wooden boxes. I unfortunately have book ends for shelf now.

He's there for you. You can talk to him. He will be with you forever. In your heart and your soul.

JC

Yes, Jasper is home now. Where he absolutely belongs. I talked to Admiral every second that I had her in the car and after we got home.

That is a beautiful urn. I have tears in my eyes again. When a beloved goes away from us it is so hard. So very very hard.

Dear Carol and Barrie,

I'm so glad you have GJ back with you. I have little covered dishes, some cat figures, some lovely little jars, with the ashes of 5 kitties I've lost over the last 25 years. It's such a comfort to have them back at home. I hope when my time comes that all our ashes will be mixed together.

That is really a very beautiful urn ! Now he is with you.
We have a little graveyard in our garden where all our cats and a dog are burried. The cats were all around 20 years. I have two cat statues and flowers in a cat basket which I made to a flower pot on the graveyard.
Keep on going ! All the best !

Marg said...

Yup, more tears coming at this house but we are thrilled that he is home with you now. That Urn is just so purrfect. We really like that. We sure send tons of purrs and some mighty big hugs. Jasper is very much watching over both of you. Love the picture. Take care.

Caren Gittleman said...

Carol my heart is in my throat. I know the feeling of picking up our beloved kitties and bringing them "home", albeit in a different state. I know the pain, I did it with my Angel Bobo. The urn you chose is just gorgeous and purrfect.....I wish I could give you and Barrie a huge hug. The photo of GJ is perfect. Holding you all close to my heart. ((((hugs))))

Welcome home, GJ. But we don't think you were ever really gone - you are forever in the hearts of your Mum and Dad - and ours too.

Kari said...

Jasper is home when he belongs. Those who are remembered never really die. We think of him every day. The urn is beautiful! What an
excellent choice. We understand
Barrie's loneliness without Jasper
because we have been so horribly
lonely without him. We half expect to
see him in all his sweetness and
beauty when we come to visit.
Jasper has seen us through so many
difficult times and always managed to
warm our hearts and help us to find
our inner strength and Joy. We will
love him forever. It was a blessing for us to have the privilege of knowing
him. All of our love always.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Gosh, Carol, I am glad your boy's home with you AND at the same time at the bridge watch over his Mum and Dad. Curled up on your Mum's lap, perhaps?

I was remembering earlier that Spitty was GJ's Secret Paws last year and at first it made me a little sad to think of that, but then I realized it's how we got to "know" you all, so in reality it was quite a good thing! GJ was a wonderful, sweet ManCat who spread a lot of love around the blogosphere--we're all better for knowing him, and you.

And that is a beautiful sculpture--very like him. XOXOXOXO
