  1. A Song for Chinook the Ferret

    Beautiful comments from you all. This is such a wonderful soulful community. Thank you all
  2. Years have gone by since my life changed forever. I am now medicated and in therapy. My family has it with my obsession with ferrets, perhaps I am trying to fill in a gap in my life. I still will not turn off my torch for my Chinook, they can't make me for I will never betray his memory. I am getting better I feel and have done my last memorial video of Chinook, a milestone in my ongoing grief, 5 years later. This is for you my Chinook. Your life is being celebrated and I pray I will see you in Heaven and you will remember me. My Nookie
  3. One cat, and then a second one dying.

    My heart goes out to you and know your pain. Hang in there
  4. Music That Soothes Me

    http://olivianewton-john.com/LIVON-announcement.html I am a big Olivia Newton John fan and she has a song for all occasions. One her recent songs, "Let Go, Let God" has been helping me but she is coming out with a new CD strictly for the grieving soul. FYI Olivia Newton-John, Beth Nielsen Chapman & Amy Sky Create “LIV ON” - A New Album to Aid & Comfort Those Experiencing Grief & Loss While Using the Power of Music To Heal
  5. Movies about grief

    "Eye for an Eye" is a tear jerker movie starring Sally Field. She gets revenge on the killer of her daughter which I am not condoning but her acting performance dealing with grief throughout the movie is so powerful it is unbelievable. There is a scene where the smell of her daughter on her pillow that got washed in the washing machine in error and she went unhinge because the last remaining partial of her daughter was gone. So powerful, I burst out crying.
  6. I Killed My Pet Cat!

    So sorry for your loss. Sending Thoughts and Prayers your way. God Bless Tim
  7. My Cat died an accidental death

    OMG Chivon. What a tragic accident. I feel your pain and sorrow. I am so so sorry for your loss. My suggestion would to write a journal to write those hurtful feelings and emotions down. Marty and her associates are very compassionate people, listen to them, they helped me with the loss of my pets.

  8. I lost my dog and it's my fault

    I am so sorry for your lost. My pets, pet companions are like my fur-kids and even with the loss of many pets it seems in the last few years you can drive your self crazy with "What If's or I Should haves" When I feel guilty and I do, I try to think that my furry friends knew I loved them with all my heart and I did the best I could. Accidents will happen. It is like thinking your parents should be perfect from a child's perspective but in the end parents are no one special, they are just people whom happen to had kids and there is no training when you become a parent. Parents do the best they can be and most do and some don't. What I am trying to say, do not kick yourself on whatever guilt you may have, what ever it was it was not intentional and the fact you are here your love Nitro is profound. So many people do not even flitch when their pet dies, okay let's get another one like replacing a light bulb. Hang in there. God Bless
  9. I had an songwriter and an singer so I could make this final tribute to my beloved Chinook. Unknown to the talent parties, this song was completed on 2-22-14, 2 years to the day Chinook went on to the Rainbow Bridge. Everyone on this site has been so kind and loving, I wanted to share this with you all. Everyone has been so helpful, guiding me to books and sharing your own wisdom and insight. God Bless Tim Smith Phoenix, Arizona. ************OMG, NOVEMBER 4, 2015..... I have been reading some old posts because I was very a little blue missing my Chinook and just realized now after all this time I put in the wrong video in my original post, "The Cat From Outer Space"... Below is the video and song of Chinook the Ferret. Funny, well it is not funny but sometimes I feel myself not grieving for Chinook then I go into this fit of guilt like I am forgetting him which I am not. Even this past Halloween, they say its the day "when the dead return to their loved ones by a camp fire", we have all heard that saying so I took pictures where his cage was and is favorite playing spots which of course has changed with rearranged furniture a new carpet almost like he would not recognize the place. There were no balls of light not even a reflection of dust or a light bulb to humor my sense of hope. Chinook has moved on I am told may-be I am starting to too but feel guilty doing so... Thank you again for always being here allowing me to vent my most private hurtful memories and of course joy.

  10. Is Chinook The Ferret Waiting For Me In Heaven

    I want to thank everyone for taking the time to share your own experiences and wisdom,. This forum is such an blessing. I have picked up one book on AMAZON and just started reading it now. I guess you always feel your pain is unique but we all go through it. I have re-read everyone's comments 3 times since my first response, it is the reinforcement positive thoughts and love for a complete stranger is overwhelming and most welcome. Thank you all. Thank you Marty for being here for us all. Respectfully Tim Smith
  11. Is Chinook The Ferret Waiting For Me In Heaven

  12. Chinook the Ferret passed 2-22-12. In my heart I felt I should have put him down a few months back but I felt he still has some earthly pleasures, eating, snuggling, and so on even though his behind legs were going out. The day he died, I knew I had to put him down the day before but we both knew. I remember I took a week off work and my last day, I was praying for God to take him because I knew I could not handle it,. I remember crying and Chinook crawling to me and licked the tears off my face. The worst day of my life and I pray for my life to end to end the pain in my heart, Fast forward almost an year and half later, and the sting of his death is still with me. I keep on telling me, this soon will pass and I think of Nikomi, my other ferret and even though I am sad, it is not grief stricken like Chinook. Chinook was always my favorite and I supposed it is my fault for building my life around this wonderful critter and now he is gone. The worst part, I am now being exposed to more and more people in my life that state animals do not have souls. Nothing is written in the Bible and I quote scriptures such as "and the Lion will eat with the sheep in harmony" which suggests there is a place in Heaven for God's creatures and then I get these people that say, you have to be reborn again, believe in Jesus, etc etc and animals have no concept of God so therefore they are here on earth to entertain us and to be eaten and that is it. So what is the purpose of dying or going to Heaven if my Chinook is not going to be there, I have lost family members in my life and I have grieve for them but I also know the Bible teaches we will be reunited in Heaven, I am so lost and cry and cry more and more but always in private because the people in my life are tired of hearing about Chinook the Ferret and for obvious reason why I do not have another ferret, It is almost welcoming to be separated in my relationship so I can get another ferret but I know that will not happen. No other ferret or other animal for that reason can replace my Chinook. I am so lost. Would like to share this short video I made on You Tube that sums up how I feel in this post. Thank you for listening.
  13. We Lost Our Snickers 1-2-13

    The new year is getting to a bad start. We miss our SNICKERS. She was a pit bull chow mix with a heart that could warm anyone with a hard heart. Rest in Peace, our beloved dog. http://tjsmitha5.wix.com/tribute-to-snickers#
  14. I would like to share this music memorial tribute to my beloved ferret, Chinook. The poem in the video is short and I wrote it for my lovable pet. Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts. God Bless you all.
