Thank you to GVH and Dr. Kirsten Nordt for their outstanding help with our cat Apollo. He was very sick and they took great care of him especially at the end. Apollo was one of our best friends. He had the biggest smile, loudest purr, softest fur, and my heart. Always finished his dinner. Loved to watch television especially football with Jimmy. Huge Giants fan. Great sense of humor. Patient, loyal, and a true friend to his brother Zeus. I miss you daily. Your resting place is in our garden. I wish you peace and love Apollo.

Thank you to Dr. Della Monica and Dr. Soucy for their kindness and compassion during the unexpected departure of my best friend, Promise. She was the sweetest dog and truly, “my person”. From the very first day until the very last day, I loved her with all my heart. Thank you Promise for the privilege of knowing you.

Tibbles was such a wonderful little cat. She loved playing with her little plastic water bottle caps, especially in the middle of the night. She’d carry them around in her mouth, play fetch, and try to meow with them in her mouth. She also loved drinking from the sink. She would stick her head under the running water and catch the drips off of her nose. Every night she would come and lay on my chest when I crawled into bed. She would do the same thing in the morning, as soon as she knew I was awake. She loved sleeping in my hair at night too. As soon as I’d sit down, it didn’t matter where I was, she would sit on top of me. She was such a little lap cat.
Tibbles was a cancer survivor and had three surgeries to remove the cancer from her leg. I thought I was going to lose her 6 years ago, but we were lucky enough to have found Dr. Nordt, who is amazing. She performed two of the three surgeries on Tibbles. I feel so lucky to have had Dr. Nordt there the night I had to put Tibbles to sleep. Dr. Nordt and the staff at GVH made a horrible night a little bearable.
1998 – 2013
Abandoned in our postal parking lot as winter 1999 approached, you ‘adopted’ me. You hopped into my warm car and curled up in the passenger seat as if to say “take me home.” You’ve been a constant companion thru good times and bad… your beautiful eyes always filled with unconditional love and trust. In recent years you hung in there thru all your medical trials and triumphs, numerous trips to the vet, daily shots and medications without complaint. On the first day of summer 2013 in the comfort of your home you went to sleep for the last time. I miss you so much that my heart aches but I know you’re at peace and waiting at the Rainbow Bridge. You truly did leave paw prints on my heart! Love you sweet girl!
I can’t thank everyone at Guilford Vet enough for all your care, compassion, patience and support. You’re the best!
