Prayer For Dead Cat
O Lord our God, we come before You this day in sadness. (Pet's name), who brought us so much joy in life, has now died. (His/Her) happy times in our family's embrace have come to an end. We miss (pet's name) already.
Help us, O God, to remember the good times with (pet's name). Remind us to rejoice in the happy times (he/she) brought to our home. Let us be thankful for the good life we were blessed to give to (him/her).
We are grateful to You, God, for creating (pet's name), for entrusting (him/her) to our care, and for sustaining (him/her) in our love for a measure of time. We understand that all that lives must die. We knew that this day would come. And yet, O God, we would have wanted one more day of play, one more evening of love with (pet's name).
O God, as we have taken care of (pet's name) in life, we ask that You watch over (him/her) in death. You entrusted (pet's name) to our care; now, we give (him/her) back to You. May (pet's name) find a happy new home in Your loving embrace.
As we remember (pet's name), may we love each other more dearly. May we care for all Your creatures, for every living thing, as we protected the blessed life of (pet's name). May (his/her) memory bless our lives with love and caring forever. Amen.
Mother Earth, we return to you
the body of one of your children.
Her spirit will return to her ancestors,
and she will continue to live in our memories.
We are thankful that we were able
to share our lives with her,
and give her to your loving arms.
You have crossed over now,
into the spirit realm.
May you walk with Bast,
and I will see you again some day.
Lord, pets were one of your greatest creations. (cat's name) brought me so joy and love and I praise you for your wisdom in creating animals that enjoy the company of people. Thank you for the blessing of (cat's name). May he go peacefully into heaven and await my eventual arrival. Please let me see (cat's name) again someday at the Rainbow Bridge.
St. Francis and St. Anthony, please come promptly to the aid of this
precious cat, and those who love her so, and enable her to find her
way back home, having suffered no ill effects from her separation
from her family.
Thank you sweet Jesus for your mercy on this family and their dearly
loved cat, and for restoring her to them.
It is in your name we pray,
You created all things for your glory
And made us stewards of this creature.
If it is your will,
restore (pet's name)
to health and strength.
Blessed are you, Lord God,
And holy is your name for ever and ever.
O God, every animal, in every forest, field, and home, belongs to you, and is under your loving care. May your blessing be upon this cat/dog and in your steadfast kindness. Keep (him, her) safe from all harm. We pray that you would show forth your eternal love and mercy, in the companionship and friendship that this cat/dog provides. Amen.
Lord, (cat's name) is such a gentle soul; please welcome him into your arms and onto your lap. I pray that his transition is peaceful and he feels my love for him as he goes. Thank you for allowing me the time with (cat's name) that I had - he was such a blessing to me.
