Angel Abby

We are all so sadden by the news of Nikita leaving for the Bridge.
Every single time an animal passes over a piece of our hearts go with that special little angel.

I know that there are no words of comfort, in fact I know of none that help,other than to let you know how very sorry I am over your loss, and it is a huge one, one that will be very difficult as the next few days and weeks will reveal.

YOU are deeply in my thoughts and I would like to say to be gentle with yourself as there will be much soul searching.

Just know you gave Nikita a wonderful home and much love and that is all any of us could ever want. He was lucky to have you and you were lucky to have him. That love you shared will sustain you in your deepest hour of sorrow and loss.

Please feel at any time to contact me at manxmnewsATgmailDOTcom.

I offer my shoulder to listen anytime. I will keep you in my thoughts and hope that the healing process is aided by Nikita himself through the love he holds for you.

Many hugs and blessings.

Here's what a friend sent me when I lost my Pluto. I believe this will help you and Elvira as time goes on.

I loved you so --
‘twas Heaven here with you.”

I am so sorry about Nikita, and I will miss him lots.

He was really an awesome and very handsome mancat.

Purrs to you.

Create With Joy

Dearest Kiril,

I just received word that your beloved Nikita is gone, and I am so utterly sorry for your loss!

No matter how much you prepare yourself for your beloved cat's departure, there is really no preparing for their absence.

The Rainbow Bridge is a much happier place now that Nikita has arrived - but I know that it will take some time for you and Elvira to adjust.

Your tribute was beautiful. Isn't it amazing how one bundle of fur can so utterly change your life?

Hugs from your friends - human and feline - at Create With Joy!

Quill and Greyson

We're so sorry for your loss. Purrs to help ease your sadness.

Dearest Kiril and Miss Elvira - My heart is so heavy for you both.

Nikita is truly an inspiration. I've only known you all for a short while, but in that time, I've grown to love you.

I know that Mr. Nikita is sharing his talent there and those around him are delighted to have his magical presence.

Take care, Kiril & Miss Elvira.

Carry on as Mr. Nikita would want.

All the best - Lori

Cokie the Cat

Dear Kiril,

I'm so sorry. I was so honored and comforted by your tribute to Cokie earlier this month. I had no idea Nikita would be joining him so soon.

I'm glad you were able to have some time to prepare and properly say goodbye to Nikita, not that that makes it easy or will make you miss him any less.

Much love,
Cokie's mom, Kristin

Pam & Oskar

You are an amazing example of how to let a loved one go.

I applaud you for sharing your story in a way that doesn't apologize for the need to move on, while remembering Nikita's life in a wonderful way.

We are sending hugs & prayers,

I'll miss you so much, Mr. Nikita!

I can't believe how much I'll miss you, when we only just "met".

You're so lucky to have a Daddy who is strong enough to let you go when you're ready.

I hope my Mom is as good to me when my time comes.

See you at the Rainbow Bridge some day!


O, Daddy Kiril, I's so sorry that Professor Nikita ran off to the Bridge. I's sending purrs and purrayers, lots of them, to you and Ms. Elvira.

At least we have so many of his works left behind to read, I will nefur furget what he wrote for me after trying to find my background and ancestors.

Professor Nikita will be so missed.
