    This heartfelt thank you is long overdue. My beloved Tuxedo cat passed in May 2013. The kindness and compassion that everyone at Forget-Me-Not showed me is ever remembered.

    It was indeed a trying time for me as my husband was coming to the end of his battle with cancer and died a month after Tuxedo. We lived for our cats as they were the children we never had. We had just moved and our new veterinarian recommended Forget-Me-Not and I am forever grateful that she did.

    The kindness and compassion began the moment the wonderful young lady at the desk picked up the phone. I was not accustomed with our previous vet to accompany my beloved pets to their cremation. When I was told I could have a private cremation I was so grateful.

    From the moment I walked into you facility I could feel how much you cared. I had a chance to say one last good bye in the private viewing room. I was so taken with how gently the young man placed Tuxedo’s body in the crematoria. He gently curled him up as though he was just sleeping.

    I chose to wait for Tuxedo’s ashes. There was a dog and a cat in the reception area. The cat had been a rescue and it stayed by my side as I sat on the floor and stroked it for well over an hour. All the while the business when on around me as I sat on the floor and cried. Everyone was kind and stopped to see if I was alright and they listened to me tell “Tuxedo stories”.

    I had the ashes of the many beloved cats I have been privileged to call my own in a custome made wooden box but unfortunately it was becoming too small so I was interested in a larger urn. I saw the urns in a display case and found a lovely one, the classic silver and gold and when the cremation was completed Tuxedo’s ashes were placed in the urn.

    My husband would have wanted to be there with Tuxedo but he was in the hospital. Shortly after returning home we were told the end was near for him. He saw the urn that now contained the ashes of all our cats who had passed and he joked that it was so beautiful that he would like one like it for his own ashes. My husband was not one to express feelings and this was one of the rare times he mentioned anything to do with his own death.

    The young lady at desk (I’m so sorry I can’t remember your name) was so helpful in calling the urn company to find out the specifics and I was able to order an urn for my husband’s ashes. When my husband passed away a month later I had the beautiful urn with a lovely engraved plaque as the center of his memorial service.

    I want you to know that if you ever, ever doubt how grateful we are for your compassion or that you are performing a needed service…DON”T. You are very special people and we all appreciate you. My husband and I were used to being laughed at for all the love, attention, time and money we spent on our sixteen cats but those cats provided more comfort and love than any people we knew and they were our family. You all treated Tuxedo as though he was your own pet.

    When I have the sad task to send off another of my beloved cats, I will come to Forget-Me-Not again.

    Thank you so very much.

    From the moment we called, I felt a sense of calm, trust and true empathy from the wonderful woman I spoke with. She explained everything in detail and we decided to have a viewing with our pet. We set up a time for the next morning and when we arrived, we were greeted so sweetly she offered her dearest sympathies to us and led us to a comfortable room where we stayed and visited with our pet. We never felt rushed and when we were ready to leave, the cost was so reasonable for all they offered us and it went very smoothly. I can’t begin to tell you how much having that time with our pet meant to our healing and having closure. I left with a sense of peace and knowing our pet was being treated with dignity, kindness and love. Thank you!

    We can’t thank Forget-me-not enough for helping us feel at ease about the decision to cremate our beloved 18 year old boy, Whiskers.

    Over the past several months he had health issues and we doted on him gratefully because he gave us so much joy, even in his diminished state. He was still purring, playing (albeit less strenuously) and still loved to be snuggled so we made sacrifices to keep him as comfortable and healthy as he could be given his issues. Then the day came when he gave us the signal which was very tough for him and consequently us. However, every good fur-parent knows when it is too much and we made our pain filled decision to say our goodbyes. We were there to send him off and knew the next decision would be equally as hard.

    The vet expenses were through the roof but ultimately we wanted to do what was right to honor his memory. That’s where Forget-Me-Not comes in. A friend used their services and had shared how kind and reasonably priced they were. The thought of leaving him somewhere after caring for him so heavily was inconceivable but after talking with the folks at Forget-me-not we had no doubt they were pet lovers and got it. When we got there, they were so unbelievably thoughtful and kind. They listened and comforted us. They knew this was difficult and did everything they could to make us feel at ease before we left. They wanted us to feel ok with our decision and although the drive home was tear-filled, we knew we were doing the right thing and just wanted him home. We received the call that we could bring him home and although we knew it was just his little vehicle that we were taking home, we felt relief.

    Thank you, Forget-me-not for the amount of care you put into your jobs. It makes a huge difference to those of us grieving and we just wanted to let you know we appreciate everything you did for us and our Boy.
