It's never easy. It was her time. You gave each other 18 wonderful years of love.

Sorry to hear about Fatso

You gave her a good run and made her 18 years the most you could.

So sorry for your loss We lost our Siamese a month ago at 16 years, she had digestive issues since about 5 years old and finally was to the point that she was not enjoying life anymore

So sorry to hear of this. Saying goodby to our little pets never gets easier.
We need these little bearers of tenderness in our lives. I'm glad she had such a
loving family. She was never without love with you there for her.

Our very first kittah was a calico. I found her in a trailer we used to store equipment at the landscaper's where I worked at the time. I named her Trouble because I knew the wife and I were both in trouble because she won both our hearts immediately. We only got 15 years... we are both terribly sorry for your loss.

Thanks, everyone.

It's been a rough day. Very sad. I keep second guessing myself with things like...what if we had just given her a few more days? Did we do everything we possibly could? Was there something else we could have tried? Was this really the right thing?

And just thinking about how trusting she was as we put her in the carrier...and me knowing what was coming. Same with sitting on her blanket at the vet...total trust. I have this nagging feeling of guilt like I betrayed that trust.

I keep expecting to see her in her usually spots, forgetting she's gone. Her favorite blanket is still out and I can't quite bring myself to put it away, yet. Is that strange...???

Having her with us for almost 20 years it's a weird feeling that she's not right here. It's just been a rough day.

No, it's not strange. Those little items of theirs that we hold onto gives us comfort as we cope with letting them go. They sooth us while we grieve and give us the opportunity to not have to let go all at once. She was tired NAV, and she needed and wanted to rest. She needed you to help her, and you did. There is no way a creature can bring so much love into your life for so long and it not hurt when it's their time to go. When its your time to cross into the next eternity, she and all her love will be there waiting for you. Prayers are with you.

I have no doubt that you did the right thing. We had the same thoughts with ours, she was never a fan of going to the vet but was oddly calm on the trip that day, I think she was ready too. Afterwards she literally was laying in such a way that she looked relaxed and at piece with the world in a way that she had not been able to be in many years - that was the key to tell me we did the right thing.

Absolutely not.

Some probably think it strange I still “talk” with Oscar at this grave and place a fresh rose on it when my roses are blooming. These animals are as much a member of the family as any human, and I’ve yet to have a dysfunctional pet...humans on the other hand, plenty of them.

Need-a-Vette, we have a calico we found as a stray that ran out to us several years ago while on a bike ride. She is a puff ball too and love her to death. This really hit home for me and I truly feel your pain. Our long time fur babies are so loving, it hurts to let them go and it hurts to see them suffer. It sounds like she knew it was time to go to across the bridge to await you (along with the doggies).

I hope your other kitties are doing okay, as do I hope you and your family are.

Felt the same when I lost Rexx, who was 14, almost 7 years ago. Still miss that cat, as he was very cool.












Now, would you like 3 more cats to replace the one you just lost? I can put them in the mail tomorrow...
