I always dreaded the day that I would have to use this part of the forum myself, as we all know sadly it is the inevitable. Today we lost our dear girl Athena, she has crossed the rainbow bridge. The vet said it may have been a stroke and her kidneys then failed, she passed away in my daughters arms peacefully. She loved the sunshine on her face, soaking it up in the window, getting her treat when dad got home, hopping up on the counter waiting patiently for her turn to get her treats. Out of all the pets we have and the humans too, she was always up with me in the wee hours of the morning, she was my sweet girl and I will miss her dearly. RIP Athena.

For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.”

My condolences for the loss of you angel on earth, Athena. It is so hard to read every time a long time member or mod loses a dear Sphynx. She will be waiting for you on the other side.

So very sorry for the loss of your girl Athena. She clearly was a daddy's girl. I know you'll keep the good memories close to your heart. Hugs for you and your family.

Athena is one of the two reasons sphynxlair exist and we now have an international community of sphynxlovers. Thank you Athena for spreading sphynx love around the world.

I was lucky to have actually met your beautiful baby in person and see the love between you and Athena. I got to hear the sweet accent/tone of voice you put on when talking to her and she just ate it up. She loved you Tom just as much as you loved her. She will be in your heart forever. Fly high sweet girlie.
