Dearest Petie,

My eyes are leaking something terrible as I write this. Today you joined the angels in heaven, leaving a huge void that no one else will ever be able to fill. It’s a testament to you that hundreds of pals have joined together today on twitter to honor you. Your love, kindness, and generosity made the world a better place. You touched everyone who had the good fortune to know you.

I’ve only known you a couple of years, but they’ve been spectacular. It’s amazing the fun we had spending summers at the lake with you. I’m so glad I did a book of our first Summer at the Lake with Petie. I can look at it everyday and remember you and how much fun we had!

Thank you again for hosting the winter carnival too. I had so much fun arranging everything. You and your mom and dad were such wonderful hosts!I’ll always remember being a bridesmaid at your wedding. I was just over a year old, still practically a kitten! It was my first time being a bridesmaid and I was so excited and honored.

You were so cool in your #BBOT motorcycle jacket. You made all the girl kitties swoon, including me! Don’t be jealous Pandy. We all knew who had Petie’s heart! It was an honor to ride today with #PinkAngels and #BBOT today for #RideForPetie.

Petie my furriend, you embodied what was best about being an anipal on Twitter. I’m glad I got to know you. I know your mom and dad are heartbroken right now. But the selfish part of me hopes that when things settle down some that you’ll be able to tweet OTRB. It’s hard to think about Twitter without your gentle, loving voice. Miss you already.

  1. That was such a beautiful tribute to a beautiful friend. I was so very sad to see that news this morning. He touched so many lives and we are all better for having him as a friend. He will live in our hearts forever.

  2. When I gently told April and Sunny kitties that Petie had passed over the Rainbow Bridge, their eyes leaked terribly. Petie meant so much to them, even though they had only known him a short while. I can hear them gently whispering now, mewing prayers for Petie’s great spirit and for his family. Hugs to Petie’s mamma.

  8. Der is so many things I wanna say, I dunno where to start. Petie has bin my furiend since I started on Twitter.

Anyway, mommy says its time now fur me to go fur walkie so I gots to go so I’ll just not say goodbye, just dat I bark at yoo laters ok?

  9. Pumpkin, the book you created for At The Lake With Petie is one of my favorite books to look at when I want to spend time with Petie and our wonderful twitter family. It is an awesome way to show others what an Anipal is all about 🙂

    Petie is an angel OTRB just like he was here on earth with us and I know that I’m a better person having known Petie and his family…thank you for sharing Petie with us! His kindness made a difference in the world.

  10. “Some friends come into our lives and quickly go.
    Some friends move our souls to dance. They awaken us to
    new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
    Some friends make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
    They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints
    on our hearts, and we are never ever the same.”

    – Flavia Weedn –

    We will never, ever be the same…but we are all better to have loved you Petie~

    I know you will always be with us all. Praying the deep hurt and sadness of mama’s and daddy’s broken heart swells into smiles of remembrances and wonderful memories.
