Just found these prayers for our lost fur babies

The following were sent to me after Lexie died, and I have only just found them.  I hope nobody is offended by them.

G-d, full of love, dwelling in the spirit of all life, may the spirit of Lexie be accepted into your love. By the merit of her love, may her spirit live on in the love of all life.

Our G-d and G-d of our ancestors, Creator of the universe which You filled with the wonders of life, You have brought forth diverse living creatures and endowed us with the ability to love them, care for them, and be comforted by them.

I thank you for the life of my pet, a constant and loyal companion who shared my home and my love.

At the same time I grieve the loss of my beloved pet, I give You thanks for the miracle of life and the wonder of the love and companionship we shared.

O Lord our G-d, we come before You this day in sadness. Lexie, who brought me so much joy in life, has now died. I am grateful to You for creating Lexie, for entrusting her to my care, and for sustaining her in my love for a measure of time.

I understand that all that lives must die. I knew that this day would come. And yet, O G-d, I would have wanted one more day of play, one more evening of love with my little Lexie.

As I took care of Lexie in life, I ask that You watch over her in death.

May we care for all Your creatures, for every living thing, as we protected the blessed life of Lexie and all our fur babies.  May their memory bless our lives with love and caring forever.

That certainly is very moving - thank you for posting it.

I still miss my cats dreadfully - even though we have a wonderful (if slightly mad) Border Collie to run us ragged and keep us company now
