The peace that passes understanding (Phil. 4:7). That’s what I carry in my heart tonight, for my precious love.

God bless this little soul, who shared just about her entire life (16 years) with us. Thank you, my love. Thank you for sharing your light with us.


Forever love never dies; it only changes form. We will see you again, sweet child of my heart. Until then, walk in the light, and rest in His perfect peace.

  1. I’m trying to feel the peace, and I do for sweet Penny, but my heart is breaking for you, Laura. I so understand the great loss and the hug empty spot you feel. Time will heal, and you know you gave Penny such a wonderful life, as she added so much joy to yours. Rest in peace sweet baby girl Penny. You were one lucky Kitty, and you brought so much joy to your Momma. Sending comforting hugs and thoughts, Laura. My sincere sympathy is with you today and in the days and weeks and months ahead as you learn to adjust to life without Penny.

    1. Thank you, Jodi. You have a special gift for understanding. And having gone through this so recently yourself, you know that hole is just huge right now. I keep hoping I’ll see flashes of her, as we did with her brother. I hope she’s checked in with my dad; I know he’ll look after her. Thank you, friend. πŸ’œ

      1. Another condolence from Nina, animal lover who has lost four great dogs over time. So good that you have your paintings. I really do believe in the Rainbow Bridge, plenty of pals and catnip there. πŸΎπŸ’”

  2. My dear dear Laura…I don’t even have words for this. I know how difficult this time is and how it feels. But I do have love…lots of love that I’m sending your way. You’ve captured the beauty of Penny and she’ll live on through your art and in not only your heart, but now our hearts as well. ❀️❀️❀️


  3. I’m sorry to hear about your Penny. Our pets hold such special places in our hearts, and I know you will miss her a lot. You were blessed to have her in your life, and she was blessed to have such a loving “mom” in you. Condolences and hugs.

  4. Oh, Laura! Wrapping you in a hug! I do believe we will see our pets again one day. I’m sure Penny is jumping and running after bugs in heaven! She would be saying, thank you for ALL the love you gave her. πŸ’œ Please take good care of you, my friend! 😒

        1. We are both very tender hearted so we blubber together sometimes but it definitely helps. I hope I can find another forever love like she was. I doubt it, but can’t rule it out, either. I’m glad you like my artwork of her. Art continues to be a huge blessing and healing presence in my life.

  5. Your post brought me to tears, and remembering Stubby, who was with us for 16 years, and more recently, Sophie a senior kitty at the shelter; she died 2 years later but I know she was happy with me. I’m glad I sketched her. Now I have another rescue kitty, a black and grey tabby and she is just 2 years old. I hope she will be around for a long time. I should sketch her soon! I hope you find a new one to love as soon as you feel up to it.

    1. Thank you, Genie; isn’t it amazing how we fall in love with these creatures? They are so precious. I really appreciate your comment. And I do hope you sketch your little two year old. I am hoping for another lap cat, should we decide to become parents again. We are both devastated at the moment, as you can imagine. Feeling very bereft.

  7. Oh Laura, I’m so sorry to hear it, and doubly sorry that you had to make that gut wrenching decision that she couldn’t do on her own. We had to decide that with our last dog and it was SO hard. my heart is breaking for you…I know that Penny will leave a big hole in your life and I’m sending hugs to you. Be extra good to yourself for a little while…you deserve it.
