Thanks to all of you here at critters. you are just great and I made it through some tough times with you all and your support. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY LITTLE SUZIE!!!!!!
05-30-2009 1:10 AM -- By: Kevin and Arttica, Pet's name: Princess Stevens May 29, 2009 7:39a.m. the worst day of my life. We lost our sweet 7 year old American Cocker Spaniel Princess or as we so playfully called her "Princi" Kevin and I retrieved Princess 7 years ago as a 6 week old baby. Kevin and I have not lived in the same household for over 2 years. Princess was our glue for our continued friendship. We shared custody of her! : ) For Kevin, Princess was all that he had. She was there through all of our obstacles, her sweet sweet spirit made the world seem like something worth living for. This may sound strange to some, but she truly taught me how to love unconditionally without fault. Our hearts are broken, a piece of us most definitely went along with her today. We pray that we will see her again. She suffered with seizures, which became a bit more often. However, I don't believe that was the cause of her passing. We are really uncertain. Just yesterday she was happy, not quite herself a little down. She passed in the arms of Kevin this morning. When I received the phone call, I was literally escorted to my car. We were crushed! To all of you that have lost your babies, have no worries. I believe that they are God's little miracles sent to love on us, and comfort us the way no human can. They are indeed in a MUCH better place now. Any advice on how to cope would be helpful....
05-28-2009 7:34 AM -- By: Bill, Critters.com memorial: Lucy Memorial Once again just want to thank all of our "Critter" friends and thier kind words and thoughts for Lucy myself and my little rescue boxer "Baby". left on Lucy's site. It really helps and Baby has a long way to go...including the treatment for +_heartworm. I really don't want to put her through that after all she has been through. She isn't anywhere near ready for that right now anyway. The lose of Lucy is still very real and painful.... I still miss her every day...and it really helps when folks stop by to say hey! Thanks to all, Bill
05-27-2009 9:48 PM -- By: Teri, Critters.com memorial: Choco Memorial My husband and I would like to thank everyone who has visited Choco's memorial. This has weighed heavily on my husband also because Choco came to our home when he was just 7 weeks old and let me tell you...it has certainly has been an interesting 14 years and 10 months. Our home is so empty right now that I can barely stand it. Choco's passing has left a large void in my heart and I can barely manage to cope. I've lost one other Chihuahua before, but now both my babies are together. My first one, Killer, was cremated so I put his ashes with Choco. We erected a mausoleum in front of our porch where both my babies can be near us. Again, I want to thank everyone for understanding my heartache.
05-27-2009 2:05 PM -- By: Christy, Critters.com memorial: Greta Abigail Memorial I wanted to Thank all the Critters moms and dads who have become like family over the last year, I don't know how I would have made it without all of you! Also I have pretty much finished Gretas 1 year tribute page and would appreciate any visitors as I am having a difficult time. There is an amazing poem on there sent to me by Kia's Mom Deb and I wanted to Thank her especially as this poem REALLY touched my heart..Deb you are an Angel..Thanks again to everyone! Love, Christy Rest in Peace my sweet Angel.
05-26-2009 11:03 PM -- By: DEB, Critters.com memorial: ~ Kia~ Kuvasz ~Murphy Memorial Just wanted to share this with every one its a beautiful poem from a fur kid to us here, Mom and Dads I did what this is saying for Kia like many of you so I had to post it ............ .You were with me to the very end and even after I had gone" you held me, and as my soul left my body and I looked down and saw you crying, I wanted so much to tell you that I understood. You did this for me.
"I tried to tell you in my own way that it was time for me to leave, and I thank you for understanding. No other will take my place, but those I left behind will need your love and affection as I have had.
"You still think of me, and there are times when you try to hide your tear-filled eyes...but please, be happy and think not of sadness, but of how I made you happy and made you laugh at the funny and smart things that I did.
"There are no fences here, for no one has the desire to 'dig out'.
"There are no thunderstorms here, therefore no fear is ever present.
"There are no fights here. Everyone is congenial.
"There is no hunger. There is no thirst. There is much to explore.
"Many of us who are older take care of the little ones and guide them. It's fun watching them run with their ears flopping and their curly tails wagging.
"We have four seasons here...and most of us agree that winter is our favorite.
"So you see, my loved one, I am very happy....
"When it is time for my friends to leave, I will meet them at the Gates, and I will acquaint them with the beautiful and serene place, and I will take care of them for you.
"Thank you for loving me, caring for me, and having the courage to let me go with dignity

Hi All...Stopping by as i came upon this recall of Nutro Cat Food and wanted to post it. I am trying to spend more time at Critters, finally! I hope all had a good Holiday weekend. My welcome to "newbies" and my love to all my dear friends here :) xoxo Joy
Franklin, Tennessee (May 21, 2009) -- Nutro Products announced a voluntary recall of select varieties of NUTRO® NATURAL CHOICE® COMPLETE CARE® Dry Cat Foods and NUTRO® MAX® Cat Dry Foods with "Best If Used By Dates" between May 12, 2010 and August 22, 2010.
The cat food is being voluntarily recalled in the United States and ten additional countries. This recall is due to incorrect levels of zinc and potassium in our finished product resulting from a production error by a US-based premix supplier.
Two mineral premixes were affected. One premix contained excessive levels of zinc and under-supplemented potassium. The second premix under-supplemented potassium. Both zinc and potassium are essential nutrients for cats and are added as nutritional supplements to NUTRO® dry cat food.
This issue was identified during an audit of our documentation from the supplier. An extensive review confirmed that only these two premixes were affected. This recall does not affect any NUTRO® dog products, wet dog or cat food, or dog and cat treats.
Affected product was distributed to retail customers in all 50 states, as well as to customers in Canada, Mexico, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, and Israel. We are working with all of our distributors and retail customers, in both the US and internationally, to ensure that the recalled products are not on store shelves.
These products should not be sold or distributed further. Consumers who have purchased affected product should immediately discontinue feeding the product to their cats, and switch to another product with a balanced nutritional profile.
While we have received no consumer complaints related to this issue, cat owners should monitor their cat for symptoms, including a reduction in appetite or refusal of food, weight loss, vomiting or diarrhea. If your cat is experiencing health issues or is pregnant, please contact your veterinarian.
Consumers who have purchased product affected by this voluntary recall should return it to their retailer for a full refund or exchange for another NUTRO® dry cat food product. Cat owners who have more questions about the recall should call 1-800-833-5330 between the hours 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM CST.
05-25-2009 9:18 PM -- By: Bill, Critters.com memorial: Lucy Memorial To all our friends at Critters....tomorrow, Tuesday it will be 18 weeks since my Lucy left me....and it still tears me up when I think of her. But about 2 months later I found out about a rescue Boxer named "Baby" who had been terribly abused and hurt. The thing was she looks just like Lucy as if she was one of her babies. I had thought that I would never have another dog....but Baby desparatly needed help so I brought her home on April 11. It hasn't been easy as I have never known a dog that has never known anything but terror and fear...she never wiggles her tail...doesn't know how to play or have fun and is always sikittish and terrified of everything. She has a permanent tilt of the head and has never made any sound probably due to the collar that was so tight on her neck they had to surgically remove it. We definatly have a long, long way to go..but whenI see her asleep on my bed covered with her quilt sometimes snoring away and totally at peace it makes it all worth it,,,, and I do see little bits of progress and she has put on some weight. I had 11 years of total love,joy and companionship with Lucy...Baby will never be Lucy....but I get something different with her and it will grow as our bond grows Right now I have a companion but not companionship just yet. She has given me a purpose and a distraction which is beneficial to both of us right now......and I know Lucy had a hand in this...somehow...someway ... she is still helping me! Thanks Lucy-girl, love forever Daddy.

I'm not a happy camper .. but know that these next few days will be so sad for me because I will be unable to visit new and old furbaby memorials .... BUT .... always know that each and every one of you and your furbaby(ies) will always be in my thoughts.

05-15-2009 12:55 PM -- By: Richard , Critters.com memorial: Dollie Memorial We'd really like to
thank all who
stopped by Dollie's
memorial and left
such kind, caring
words for us on
charged day. Right
now, I can only
afford to have the
internet at home
or on my cell. I
chose the cell so I
wherever I was.
I'm not a teenager
anymore and it
takes me Forever
to "text" a reply or
why you all don't
see our footprints
around nearly as
much as you used
to. That by no
the fact that we
think of, and pray
for, each of you
regularly. Our lives
are much richer
and more blessed
by being a part of
the Critters team.
So thank you to all
once again and
may God bless
each and every
one of you with
His very best.
and her daddy.
PS: I posted a
picture of Dot's
new "little resting
place" down at the
bottom of her
"Dot." Drop by
when you have the
time. I just know
that Dollie would
appreciate it. So
PSS: My thumb is
