This was the last picture I took of her… She had heart failure. We had two more weeks with her than we expected. She was so tough. I loved her with all of my heart and I’d give anything to hold her right now :(

    Tracy, as much as I love reading your posts, all I could think about was beautiful Pinot. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  • Jenna

    So sad to read about Pinot, I am sorry for your loss. I want to go and cuddle my cats now!

    It looks like you had a great day at the beach. It was 95 degrees in Sydney today so a beach day for us too. I’m not ready for Autumn/ Winter yet!

  • AJ

    So sorry to hear about pinot … beautiful cat …. I think their little souls are always nearby even after they’re gone. Take care, always a hard time when you lose a furry-love x

  • Jane M

    Oh this was a hard week for sure! Hugs and Hearts!

  • Jean

    Oh Tracy, so sorry to about Pinot. Hugs to all of you for your hurting hearts. In true Shutterbean spirit you found incredible beauty and joy in your everyday life in spite of what I’m sure was a difficult week. Breathe.

  • Danielle

    I am so sorry for your loss. I got teary eyed just reading this.

  • Paula

    So sorry to hear about your cat. As I was scrolling through your week my 18 month old daughter smiled and said Kiki Kiki (her version of kitty) when she saw the pictures of Pinot. Just shows you how Pinot still has the ability to bring joy and make people smile.

  • Martha

    I am so, so sorry to hear about Pinot. What a beautiful cat, and a beautiful life you had with her! I will miss seeing your beautiful pictures of her. You and your family are in my thoughts!

  • Sarah

    Losing a pet is heartbreaking. I am so sorry for your loss. Pinot was a beautiful cat and she had a happy life with you. Sending you hugs.

  • India

    Beautiful photos, as always. Love the light.

    I’m so sorry for the loss of your sweet cat. May you find comfort this week.

  • valerie

    I got teary reading about Pinot… I have my own 13-yr old cat, Bogey, who is my best friend and who has been with me through so much. He has kidney disease and I am savoring every moment of togetherness we have. I never thought I would love a cat like I love Bogey, so I understand why your heart broke over the loss of Pinot.

  • Emily

    I’m so sorry about Pinot, Tracy. I loved seeing photos of her in your Everyday Life posts and in your snaps. She brought joy (Joy!) to many people. Love and hugs to you and your family.

  • Stacy

    I just love that picture of ‘Pure Joy’-the perfect caption. It made me smile, just like hearing about Pinot made me sad. Losing a pet is hard.

  • Pat

    So very sorry about Pinot.

  • bettye rainwater

    I’m so sorry for your loss :-( Losing the animal kids is SO hard, I know.

  • Michele

    Hugs to you, it is heartbreaking to lose a pet.
    Pinot was beautiful.

  • Jemma

    I’m so sad that you had to say goodbye to Pinot. :( I always loved your affectionate posts about her or mentions of her on the podcast! It’s clear you hold a lot of love for her. I really do feel for you, and it entwined with my own difficult feelings about the death of my cat I lost in November.

  • Ruth

    I’m so sorry about Pinot. I know how heartbreaking it is to lose a dearly loved pet.

  • Shana

    I’m so sorry about your Pinot. We lost one of our dogs this past fall and I’m still not over it. In fact I’ve been avoiding the vet’s office completely (or making my husband go to pickup stuff / have appointments with our other dog solo) because I just can’t bring myself to go in and see where we said goodbye to our little man. I know it’s a bit cheesy but I do take comfort in the idea of the Rainbow Bridge for pets, our vet gave us a copy in a card afterwards but it’s also online.

  • Morgan

    Oh dear, I am so sorry for your loss. Pinot clearly had a wonderful life thanks to you. Cry it out when you need to; everyone understands.

  • Lauren

    Tracy,
    So bummed to hear about Pinot; sorry for your loss. She was a beautiful cat. I hold a special place in my heart for black cats. May she be forever loved and remembered. My own heart is breaking for you. If only kitties could live forever!

    Pinot remains a beautiful soul. Peace and love and comfort be with you and Casey and Cooper.

    I am so sorry to hear about Pinot. It is so hard to lose a pet. Thinking of you and your family.

    I’m so sorry about Pinot. she was just lovely. I’m glad for you that you have so many photos of her, and that your guys can remember her with you.

  • Ludi @BuildBakeTaste

    Dear Tracy,
    I just wanted to tell you that I’ve been through the same thing, unfortunately, with my first cat, Minu, and I very well know the feeling of loss. Whatever other people might think of “pets”, having a cat in our house is like having a confidant, a friend, and an incredible source of love and affection. So, I send you all my love and hugs.
    Ludi

  • mary

    Sending you love and moments of memories, Tracy. I hope you allow yourself to grieve – both for you and for Cooper. It’s important for our kids to see us deal with loss… And then I hope your mind gets flooded with wonderful memories of Pinot. Your photos of that sweet black cat WILL soon comfort you. I promise.

    I’m so sorry about Pinot. We lost our sweet Fonz to heart failure and it was awful because pets are our family. While we still miss her, it’s wonderful to think of her quirks and see photos of her now. Our thoughts and love to you and your family.

  • Gaby Dalkin

    I’m so sorry for your loss, Tracy. Sending warm thoughts and hugs your way

  • Marianne

    Dear Tracy,
    My heart broke too when I read the news of your sweet Pinot. Those of us who have loved and lost kitties know all too well how you’re feeling.
    What a blessing to have so many beautiful photographs of Pinot to keep her forever close in your heart and mind. I’m truly sorry for your loss…..I’m sure she was brave to the end.
    Warmly, Marianne

  • Heather

    Not gonna lie – I had a pretty big cry when I saw your IG about Pinot. She was beautiful and I’m so sorry you lost your good friend.

  • Whitney

    Tracy – I am very sorry for your loss. I loved getting to know Pinot through your art and pictures.

    I will give my kitty some extra love tonight.

  • Lindsey

    Tracy,

    My heart aches for you, I’m coming up on 1 year and I still avoid the pet aisle, especially Target because their cat toys us an abyssinian cat on them … sniff. Never easy, but know Pinot will be waiting for you on the other side. >^.,.^<

  • Jen

    So sorry!

  • Lauren

    I’m so very sorry about the loss of your Pinot. I just lost my beloved dog Sonny to cancer a week ago today and my heart is in a million pieces. I understand your pain. sending healing thoughts your way.

  • Adriene J

    I’m so sorry about Pinot… so, so, so sorry. I feel the same about my Rascal. I would have carried him on my back for the rest of my life if it meant he could still be here. Many hugs.

  • lynn @ the actor's diet

    So so so sorry about your cat. Huzzies (that’s a hug that’s fuzzy and I just made up that word).

    That pure joy shot cracks me up every time :)

  • Panya

    I’m sorry to read about your family losing Pinot. We had to put our dog Poe down almost three years ago due to a suspected brain tumor, and my husband and I both still get teary remembering/missing him.
