Hi all

I buried my cat on monday afternoon.She was 15 years old.
I can remember coming back from work (feels like a lifetime ago) and the Mrs said "plz dont be angry Ive got a kitten".

We was living in a small 1 bedroom flat above a shop,so not much room.
As soon as i saw her I warmed to her straight away.
She was a typical cat climbing into crevaces that seemed impossible lol.

Then came the lazer pen craze, Im certain most of you the cat owners have had plenty of
fun watching your cat climbing up the walls chasing a red dot,
only later to discover that you need to redecorate that old wood chip wallpaper.

She was always a strong and nosey cat and would certainly let you know when she was hungry,
for example, several years ago I was in the kitchen having a smoke and she jumped in through the window
trodled up to her bowl which was empty, looked up at me and then to her bowl and then started pawing it.

Over the last few months I noticed she was not as agile as she used to be.
Her back legs started to wobble as she was walking, then she went deaf at the same time, but was still full of character.
She didnt want to leave us and always curled up at my feet (keeping them warm) whilst I was on the computer.

The hardest decision we had to make was getting her euthanised.

What will haunt me for some time, Is that it took 3 doses to put her to sleep.
The vet said "she doesnt want to go".

I feel empty feelings Ive not felt before.
She was peeing and didnt have the energy to move or clean herself.
I wanted to keep her alive as long as possible the Mrs persuaded me that its for the best,
and its cruel to keep her alive.

She didnt want to go.

.
Her name was fluffy but I never called her that.

Good night my little friend, I will never forget you.

I'm sorry, losing a family member (that's what they are) is hard, i've gone through it twice.

Sorry for our loss op, if she did not have the quality of life she deserved then you did the right thing.

Great eulogy for her in this post, hope it helped some to recall the good times in this post.

My deepest sympathies. I've had and lost many great dogs over the decades and it never gets any easier.

She was a very sweet looking kitty. Sorry for your loss.

Take Care

Sorry for your loss. She looks like a cutie and from what you said she had a full life.

Sorry to hear man.
Keep your chin up....things like that suck.
I am scared to own pets for that very reason....you love them and they always go before you do and its hard to take.

Chin up man.

I'm so sorry! She sounds like quite a character. I love the stories you told about her! A beautiful tribute! And for what it's worth, you did the right thing, IMO. Once their quality of life is suffering like that, and we don't make that difficult decision, we're hanging on for ourselves instead of for them.

We've lost two animals recently (one dog, one cat) and it's SO hard to recover from it! But the one thing that helped me is to think about how lucky we are that they shared their lives with us. No one else knows just how special they were - all their quirks and qualities... What a gift they gave us! To honor that gift, I am thankful to them and it helps me move forward.

Let yourself grieve and take care of yourselves (you and the Mrs).

I am sorry for your loss. It is funny how close we are with our pets, but they really are part of the family. You did what was best for your loved one. Time will heal and the memories remain. I know it is not easy.

She looks like she could be the twin sister of my cat that had to get euthanized earlier this year. Kidney failure for him. Ironically, he was also 15.

The thing I always try to remember, as somebody else here said, is they chose you to share their life with. Somehow, some way, they chose us. Makes it a little easier and makes you feel a little more special. Doesn't make it easy, just easier.

So sorry for you.

So sorry to hear that fella...

The worst part of having this Forum is knowing that every now and then someone is going to have to make a heartbreaking post...

The best part is that our furry little friends are immortalised not only in their spirit and our memories...

But also in the 21st century Matrix of the worldwide web.



Prayers are with you and yours.

I got all choked up.
I have lost many beautiful and loving little animals through the years and I know how you feel. RIP sweet kitty!

I am so very sorry for your loss. Your beloved Fluffy lived a long and happy life. You will see her again someday.

Thank you all for your kind replies.

Its funny, even after a few days Im still finding her hairs in strange places.
It is getting slightly easier to cope with.

Thx all

I am so very sorry for your loss......pets are family....I understand what you're going through.
We lost our dog, Emily, a little over three weeks ago.

Remember the goodness and joy your cat brought to you.
Treasure the memories.
