Remembering our sweet Bing-kitty...

As pet owners, we often make the mistake of thinking that we're
the ones taking care of them. However, it isn't until they're gone...
That we realize they in fact, take care of us.
Boy... Do I ever miss our Bingee! There's not a corner of this house
where he's not missed. Every part of our lives is different now that
he is gone. There is an emptiness and sadness that I simply cannot
put into words. But I am ready to be happy again... So tonight I have
decided it is time to finish the kitty cookies I made to thank Bing's
wonderful veterinarians and their great staff who took care of him;
especially during the last year of his sweet life. I loved creating these
cookies using these vintage Martha by Mail kitty-cat cookie cutters...
I will cherish my memories of having Bing in our family forever!
My Martha by Mail kitty cutters are a happy reminder of my Bing,
who loved me and our whole family so fully and unconditionally!
He truly was the greatest cat in the whole wide world!


  1. I did the same thing for Ozzy's vet and the staff when they saved his life when he had parvo. Didnt know when we got him on a Thursday that he would be so sick by Sunday but he was. Good vet's really make the difference when dealing with our four legged family.

  2. What a lovely tribute to Bing, Janet. I completely understand how you feel; I still miss my "girls", although our new rescue is doing a great job of filling up the emptiness in our home. Hugs to you.

  3. Sweetest kitty cookies ever Janet.
    How on earth did you get the colors and markings so perfect?
    What a sweet tribute to Bing.
    Just look at what a snuggly-comfy world Bing lived in. And he will always be there with you.
    You have the coziest, most comfy house.
    Love you sweet girl.
    Hugs from Doogan and Isabelle.
    We love you!
    And know that Bing is bouncing around in HEAVEN!

  4. I'm truly sorry for your loss. There is nothing like the unconditional love of a special pet. Our house burned down on Black Friday and we lost our dearly loved dog, Kadoodles. We don't know if she was lost in the fire or got out. It's hard not knowing. I feel your pain right now and I pray that God gives you much needed comfort. The cookies are great and a wonderful gesture for the vet staff.

  5. My heart is aching for your loss of Bing. He was a member of your family and saying goodbye to a loved one is always so sad. In time Janet, I hope the memories of him bring smiles and laughter and the only tears that flow are those brought on by the joy he brought to you all.
    Your cookies are beautiful, I'm sure Bing's spirit was close by as you made them.

  6. I love those cookie cutters and how your cookies turned out. Especially the "chubby" ones with the poofy tails and short legs. I'm sure your vet's office will love them!

  7. The cookies turned out perfect and I know that everyone will appreciate them.

  8. Aww, that's such a nice gesture Janet. Your kitty was adorable and seemed extremely well cared for!!!

  9. Looks like I'm late reading this as I've been away for awhile. Dear sweet Bing was enjoyed as a wonderful presence in many of your pictures. I think ,y favorite is one of The Ranger holding him when he came home one time. I enjoyed the post about them both. I know that no words can erase your pain and how you feel over the loss of such a valuable part of your family. Just remember that he touched lives out here as you shared him with us. I miss seeing him and think of how he would make me smile when I'd see a photo of him on your posts. Must dry my tears and say that I love your tribute to him in the form of those beautiful cookies. Bing will never be forgotten by many. Warm hugs for his precious Mommy as you feel the loss.
