Man, you know I'm sad along with you.

Yellow/orange tabbies are the sweetest.
You have my sympathies, Jim.

Sending hugs your way.

Jim - PRS

I'm sory to hear that. I know how you feel.


Jim, I'm so sorry for your loss.

Thinking of you.


So sorry to hear this, Jim. Furry hugs from our house to yours....


You have my condolences. He looked just like the cat who rules the house that he allows me residence.


The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.


So sorry dude-something about those companion pets-it'll be empty for a bit-beautiful looking cat


So sorry for your loss. Pets become like children to us, especially the ones who live long lives.


I am so sorry for your loss. We loss our last Maine Coon kitty, Shadow on September 11th at the age of 18 and I miss her so. They work their way into our hearts and when they leave us, they leave such a large void in our lives. May the good memories of your little guy's companionship remain with you.

RIP Harley.

Hi, I'm Serge in Canada, just followed Denny's link. I've lost a cat. Broke my heart. Some pets we don't care about, but every once in a while, you get this one cat that's a friend.

You never forget those. I feel for you man.


Hi, I'm here by way of Denny's place. My most sincere thoughts are with you for the loss of such a loving and wonderful companion.
I'm owned by such a cat as well, she's almost nineteen, and I'm having a hard time facing the inevitable.
Your love for Harley will be returned ten-fold.

I'm so sorry, Jim. I can only imagine your grief.

Even though I gripe about it when Betsy Cat decides to sleep on me, and I wake up with 10 lbs. of cat on my neck and a mouthful of inhaled fur, or when Pookie Cat sits on my feet and yowls for no apparent reason, I know I'd be completely crushed if they weren't there to bother me.

Remember the good times, my friend, and don't wait too long before bringing a new furry critter into your life!


I just came across the link to this and am so sorry for your loss. Like you, I too have an orange tabby (Buster) who is eighteen years old. Each day I have him with me is a blessing. I am grieving for your loss and for my future loss, because I know it will come sooner rather than later. Our cats are tuly the best friends we could ever have in this life. Please accept my sincere condolences.


Sorry about your buddy. I had a cat when I was single. Yellow tiger stripe that I found as a runt left by it's mother. My best friend.

Thomas Frank

My deepest condolences.

RIP Harley. Thank you for reminding me that I need to go hug my (not so little) buddy Tiggr...




Harley sounds like he was a great one. Orange Tabbies are special (BTW 75% of them are male)

We lost my Tuxedo who was also a "dog cat" after 17 years - they do leave a big hole, don't they

RIP Harley


You have our deepest condolences. Those of use who have loved (and lost) Animal Companions know how much love we all have invested in them fuzzy guys!

We lost our Matata over 18 months ago, and we still grieve...


Damn, Jim, I'm so sorry to hear this sad news.

We bring them into our lives, knowing that when they go it'll hurt, and hurt terribly - but the love makes it worthwhile. And clearly, there was a lot of love between you and Harley.

I'm one of those nuts who believes that when our own end comes, they'll be there waiting for us. They are a huge part of our lives - I don't think a gracious and loving God would deny us their company in the Hereafter.

Warmest regards to you, Jim.


Reading this after 13 years of the loss of our most beloved (tonka)what an animal and 31 pounds of something that didnt know he was a cat! a citizen is what he was and I reel at your most awful loss.
regards Paul (uk)

So sorry. It is heart breaking to lose them.


Bugger. He looks like our Cooney, who we lost last Christmas Eve. Sorry for your loss.

Guy S

Sorry for your loss. Unconditional love, trust, and acceptance, from such four footed finery is what makes time on this earth that much more bearable.

May he Rest in Peace.
