I have not met him, but I am truly very sorry to hear of your loss. I hope he is happy in kitty heaven. :(

I'm so very sorry to hear it.
He was a very well loved kitty indeed. I am sure you gave him every comfort that you could.
i am so sorry to hear that. it was not the news i was hoping for.

I don't even think I can find the words for how sorry I am.
I'll always remember tyb as a giant furry black football with saucer green eyes, swish swishing in his gay little way through the apartment. And the way he and leo would curl up together on the chair, a big bundle of black fur. And the way he assumed that every time i moved or made a sound, it was about HIM and he must HIDE. But how sometimes I could trick him into letting me pet him and give him love.
My heart goes out to you.

that cute totoro ball of crazed wonderfulness
who always hid as i walked up the walk
two green eyes in black fluff under the bed
But the photos you've posted say everything about him to me.
Looking at my fluffy black boy kitten this morning in bed, I thought of Tybalt, and prayed that you and he were well.
I'm sad to hear that such is not the case, but I hope perhaps my prayers sped him on his way to the summerlands.
Post more pictures, so we can all remember him with you.
Much love and sympathy,

Heidi & Aimee: Come with us to pick up our kittens!
Me: You sure you want me along? Just look at what happened with me and "lolita"
H&A: Hahahaha, yeah right. Come on!
Me: Aw, bug and cristabel are so cute!
Heidi: Hey, guess what!

Re: another memory
Hee Aimee brought that up at the wee memorial service we held in the back yard this afternoon. I'm so glad Christabel turned out to be a Tybalt.

Re: another memory
hey i wanted to tell that story!
tyb and bug were such scraggly poofballs, just like the soot balls in spirited away. only cuter. and lazier.
i have, well not so much a fond memory but a vivid one of taking them to the vet for their first checkup. we put them in the same box, cause they were so wee, and somewhere between the outer richmond and nob hill one of them (to this day i am unsure which) had um, a nervous tummy. two kitties covered with scared kitty poop.
see, now, it seems kinda cute. now that i sold the car :)
Oh sweet. My gods. I am so so sorry. He's been in my thoughts and prayers all week, and I hope the best for him now. And you. I hope you had a few good moments together at the end.
I will always think of Tybalt as a shadow of himself, hovering in the doorway. And maybe the occasional tip of his tail.
oh so very sorry for your sad news :(
i already told you this, but i'll put it in writing...
whenever i think of tybalt i will always remember his very shy and very curious face peeking carefully around the corner to see who was in his house. a few times he would actually come around and brush by me. other times, if i was walking to the bathroom, he would look all scared but suddenly flop down and show me his fabulous belly.
I was completely blown away this morning when L told me over breakfast that you'd lost Tybalt. I haven't been online much at all this week, so I knew nothing of what has been going on. I'm so sad for your loss. It's a huge loss to lose your daily companion of (how many?) 7-8 years. I know the feeling too well having lost a doggah 1-1/2 years ago and a kitty 8 years ago. It's very painful and takes a lot of getting used to.
My most lasting memory of both Bug and Tybalt is back from when they were just kittens. L and I were staying the night at the Bachelorette Pad and had quite a time trying to fall asleep, first, with all the rambunctious kitten activity happening in the room and, then, with the adorable wheezing that Tyb was making. We couldn't see him, but we could sure hear him. They were such precious little matching puff balls of love, those kitties.
I cried for Bug and now I've cried for Tyb. Good kitties both. I will very much miss the challenge of trying to coax Tyb out for some lovin' upon my every visit. It was always so satisfying to win him over. He was a very good kitty.
i'm so so so sorry.
tybalt will always be a wonderful, fluffy shadow. the one with amazing green eyes, staring out at me from under your bed.
