Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My cat, Shadow, is 19 years old and reaching the end of his life. He's on two medications a day and subcutaneous fluids three times a week. He loses his balance on occasion but still isn't in great pain. He has been the first face I see each morning and the last one I see at night. It's going to be heart wrenching when the inevitable takes place. I know this book will help me to face his inevitable loss with the beautiful prayers written just for animals. It is obvious that the authors love animals as much as I do.

As a owner of 2 elderly Cats, 1 middle aged Cat and 2 Puppies, this book was perfect reading and compassionate and funny views on our furry family members. I loved this book cover to cover and feels that everybody who has or ever had a pet would get so much out of it. I have read it several times and each time I enjoy it more. My eldest Cat is reaching the end of her journey and it was wonderful to read stories of others who have gone through the same situation. I wish Amazon allowed me to give it 10 stars.

My best friend and companion for 13 years has left to go hiking in heaven, and the sadness of not hugging her every day is very overwhelming, but this book has been such a sweet read before I go to bed at night. I am grateful to the authors for their sensitive treatment towards animals and so appreciate their generous offering. On a brighter note, there's lots of wonderful blessings and prayers for other, more joyous occasions. Highly recommend for the whole family who wants to have another family member to hold in spiritual companionship.
