About sebastiansmum

I'm Allyson. My husband and I shared the life of Sebastian (the black cat with his brother Logan) from the 13th August 1998 to Wednesday 23rd March 2011, Logan's 2nd birthday. Sebastian died in my arms after being diagnosed with overwhelming kidney failure very suddenly. I elected to terminate his life. I miss him, he was my baby son.

    Thank you for the kinds words of support. Today I have returned after another week in hospital and to see my inbox full of encouragement is heartening. I have his ashes now as I couldn't physically have them before and I am so glad to be home and have him home with me. My husband and I joke about him and his antics. My lovely thoughtful husband has made arrangements for me to pick another kitten as Sebastian's brother Logan is fretting badly. Sebastian's memorial will be on sunday at a local garden where we married and I have asked my brother to participate via mobile from Darwin. We will read the Rainbow Bridge poem and light a candle and set free a black balloon for Sebastian. Thank you so much for your support. Allyson

    Dear Sebastian's Mum ..... thinking of you at this terribly sad time.  I really understand and empathise with your pain.  I lost my Daisy Girl just over three months ago and whilst it seems like another life time ago since I last saw her beautiful face, I can quite believe that we are heading towards April at the same time. It' s a strange feeling!  I can't imagine what a shock Sebastian's sudden passing must have been for you, but you bravely supported him through that transition and he would have been comforted and reassured to have been held in your arms of unconditional love.  Hope you're OK - please keep in touch and know that you have much support here with friends who totally understand what you are going through.  Sending you a big hug of love and support.  Vicki (Daisy's Mum) xx

    Dear Sebastians mum,

    Im so very sorry to hear about  the loss of your beautiful cat, Sebastian. We are never really prepared for it when it comes time to let them go. Take comfort in knowing he is at peace now & although you cant see him im sure you will always feel his presence around you just as i do with my boy Zach. We also had him cremated, the day he came home was heart breaking but also very beautiful in the fact that although we couldnt physically pat him we had our baby back with us where he belonged, we now light a candle every Sunday night ( the day he left us) to put a glow on his final resting place. Try not to look at Sebastian's passing as a final goodbye, just as a catch you later Mum & Dad.

    Take care, stay strong, Your in my thoughts.  Jackie xx

    Dear Sebastians Mum,

    I am so sorry for the loss of your friend, Sebastian. We all understand your sadness and how difficult it is to adjust to life without our best friends. They leave beautiful paws prints on out hearts and memories forever.

    My thoughts are with you, your husband and Logan too xx

    Dear Sebastiansmum,

    I am very sorry for your loss.  Sebastian is in great company with many of our very much loved and missed furry friends who are at Rainbow Bridge enjoying life without pain, running free and waiting for their loved human companions to join them one day. 

    We are a lovely little community here at OWP and you will find many like minded friends who can relate to your own grief, the rollercoaster of emotions, the anger, the utter disbelief and at times overwhelming sadness. 

    Your Sebastian is still with you right where he always was and he will remain there and will be forever in your heart.  We are so blessed to have had such wonderful beautiful companions to share our lives with.  They definately feel the same way. 

    The coming days, months and weeks aren't easy but somehow we do just keep keep on going.  Memories will bring smiles rather than tears in the year ahead but we need to let time do what it does best.  Take heart that you are with friends who understand your pain and also that your Sebastian is at peace now. 

    My Till passed away very suddenly last November.  She had just turned 9.  I have good and bad days over the past 4months and shed a tear on most days.  But I am starting to also have many tears of fond memories too.  I still look for my Till and miss her little collar jingling, her smiles her kisses her ever knowing look and for just being right there to name just a few. 

    Take your time to grieve your Sebastian.  There are many posts under forum and information under resources and services that will assist you during your journey.

    Take care, Write whenever you can or feel like it.

    Dear Friends,


    I am grief stricken following the very unexpected death of my 13 year old cat Sebastian Luke. He was my constant companion for the entire time I had him and this is the worst pain I have ever had in my life. I always dreaded this happening and I look for him everywhere. He is being cremated and will return to our family on Monday. I am planning a memorial for him in the park where I married my husband and I am looking after my other cat, Sebastian's brother Logan. If someone on this website can help me please I really need it. Sebastian was my baby we went through alot of stuff together and I adored him. Thanks.
