The loss of a beloved pet can be an extremely distressing and difficult time.  The feelings of despair and loss can be overwhelming and you may feel that others do not understand why you are grieving. It is 100% natural to grieve the loss of your constant companion, the whiskered face that came to see if you were okay after a hard day at work, who without question gave you love and attention.  The friend that was always happy to see you and relied upon you for safety, food and comfort.  Know that you are not alone in your grief.  At Felines 1st most of us have experienced the anguish and pain after losing a loved member of our family; our fur babies. If you are experiencing the grief of pet bereavement or pet loss there are support services available to you; such as Blue Cross Pet Bereavement Services: Blue Cross Pet Bereavement and Pet Loss.

Without donations from members of the public and the hard work of our volunteers Felines 1st would not be able to rescue, reunite and rehome cats in need of help.  Many of our successfully rehomed cats may be living on the streets or worse have already crossed over the Rainbow Bridge without your help.

Below are some of the stories of cats that have been adopted or rescued and have sadly crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. If you would like your cat to be remembered on this page, please contact:
