This is the hardest post I’ve ever wrote. Or ever will.
On November 6th @3:30pm Izmae suddenly had to be put to sleep.
She had FLUTD and completely lost all control of her bladder.
There was nothing, no one, no where, could do.

I had my Sister stay with her I couldn’t, my Husband couldn’t. I cried, screamed,
held her throws in my arms, that were on the couch. I cried and screamed.
Then, I started throw up. I had to lay down. I was so sick. Ever little bit
I had to throw up. This went on for 24 hrs. My husband and Sister took me to
the hospital. They, gave me shots of 2 or so different meds to calm me down that didn’t.
They gave me iv’s quick and 2 scripts. I was so sick for days. It was like a dream.



That’s been 2 weeks 3 days and I still cry everyday, every night, her throws have not been moved.
I still hold it and I still cry. I’ll never get over her. I’ve got my babies ashes. I don’t ever want another animal.
It won’t be Izmae, I won’t love it as much as Izmae but would love it. But I don’t want
to ever be hurt from loosing a animal again if I can help it and I can.
I’ve been on Sphynxlair since 2010 I love this site it’s the best. @admin you’ve done
a excellent job. I have made many friends here. Have some still that has just left for whatever
reason. I want to thank those of you that has sent gifts to Izmae and I even though you didn’t know. You know who you are. It’s to hard for me to be here so it’s time to say good bye.
Goodbye, to all my sphynxlair family...

I am so sorry. There are no words to comfort you as I know she was your heart cat. If I could hug you I would. Everyone heals differently, but know I will be here for you. If you need to chat/cry let me know so,we can connect. Izmae’s wings were huge and I know she is flying high...she was loved by so many.

I'm... shocked... dumbfounded... in tears. I am so so so so very sorry. I... I haven't the proper words to convey. You and your husband are in my thoughts. I am so sorry for your loss. Sending you hugs and gentle headbonks from my family to yours. Take whatever time you need to grieve, to heal, and know that you hold some of the most amazing memories in your heart and soul... forever.

So sorry to hear this news and for your loss. It's never easy to lose our pets, our companions, our friends. You are always welcome here Rebecca, you have been a valuable part of this community and we will surely miss you. I am hoping that over time you will heal and feel better and come back and join us again, Sphynxlair's doors are always open for you. Until then.
RIP Izmae.

Hello I am sorry I didn’t get to know you or your angel baby , but I shed proper tears reading your thread there is a saying in the uk I don’t know if you’ve heard it in the USA or where your from
“” far better to have loved and lost than never loved at all “”
This love you have in your heart will never go away and in time I hope the hurt lessens and you hold your happy days where the hurt lay .. even though you will always hold a bit of that hurt it will get easier .. and I hope and il pray you will in time get another four legged baby , because even knowing the hurt that will come eventually the fact we gave that unconditional love to that special baby is worth the heart ache
I am so sad at your hurting and I pray you find comfort
Massive hugs

I'm crying for you, I know from your posts how attached you were to your baby and it is just so traumatic to have lost her. I'm so sorry.

I'm shocked. Couldn't help but tear up hearing this horrible news. Izmae was such a sweetie and it is so obvious that she was an extremely special girl. I'm going to miss you. I'm sure we all will. Take whatever you need to heal. I know it isn't easy. We'll always be here. Hugs.

No! No! No! This can't be true. Not Izmae. Not you! I'm shocked. So very sorry for your loss. I know Queen Prissy Priss is everything for you and you love her deeply. Cry and keep crying as long as you need to. Your heart will be broken in more then thousand peaces. Hold your husband and sister close and cry on their shoulder. Ans then maybe one day your heart can heal a little bit.
Big hugs for you.

I wish we didn't have to loose you on the lair. You are part of the lair family and you always will be a part of our family. I can imagine though you don't want to be here now. Hope you will come back one day.

I am so sorry for your loss. It's been clear how much Izmae filled your heart and life and what a joy it's been for us to read about her.
I am crying and my heart aches for you. Take care.

@Hairless Blessing I am so, so, so terribly sorry to hear about Izmae. :(
I know words don't mean much right now, and I don't have any that could express how very sorry I am.
I totally understand that you need some distance from the Lair. I would too. But I am hoping that some day you'll come by and say hi, and let us know how you are doing. Because, you know, it's not just Izmae who means something to the people here, but YOU are our friend, and we care about you, and how you are feeling, doing.
Cry as much as you need to, and know you'll be in our thoughts, and we are all giving you virtual hugs.

OMG @Hairless Blessing big hugs to you and your family.
I cant imagine what you have been going through, I wish I could give you an actual hug.
Izmae was so loved while she was here on this earth and although she is gone her memories will live on in your heart.
Big big hugs, I have started to tear up as I write this.

Take all the time you need, and cry as much as you want.
I am so sorry.

My heart hurts for you so much. I know what it’s like to lose someone so precious to you. It will take a lot of time to heal so please allow yourself that. Please take care of yourself.

I am so sorry to hear this. It is never easy to say goodbye. May the memories help to comfort you. She was your once in a lifetime sphynx and she was lucky to have you. Please, take care of yourself and know that we are all here in support for you. I understand needing the distance from the Lair. Please, when you are ready drop in and say hi and let us know how you are doing.

((hugs))
Dawn and Agnes.

Lairians, I reached out for Rebecca through email. She received the flowers from the Sphynxlair family yesterday and wants to thank everyone. She will be devastated for a very long time. I told her you all were asking for her. Keep your positive thoughts and prayers going her way.

I can't even put into words how sorry and sad I am to hear of Izmae's passing. While I know you will never completely get over her loss, I hope that you are healing a little bit each day and will come back to the boards at some point when the pain isn't so raw. Although I haven't been around that much, there are Lair kitties and people that hold special places in my heart and you and Izmae are two of them. I will be thinking of you and praying that your pain eases. Rest In Peace sweet Izmae
