Bud, our love story

by sherry

April 2nd, 2014, we lost our beloved cat Bud, after battling renal failure which caused many complications. She died at home on our couch between us, which is what we wished for as we had an appointment to have her put to sleep at 0800 that morning and we told her many times it was "ok to go", which is what what she did. At times, I feel like I failed her and the tears do not stop. My husband misses her terribly as they had a special friendship. I am so sad right now, and it feels like it will never end. I know she had a wonderful 19 years but the sorrow is overwhelming!

I am so sorry for the loss of your "BUB" I can say I know how you feel I too had to put my Moe to sleep last Nov. it was sudden he wasn't acting as he should so I took him to my vet she took X-Rays and I knew as soon as she came back I had to make that terrible decisions he had a grow on his heart that was inoperable so at a young age of 6 I had to say goody by to my Moe at times it still hurts even now as I write this letter I have wet eyes some one said as soon as they teach us how to love it is time for them to go

until we may meet them at the RAIN BOW BRIDGE

Sherry when finishing your post my sister rang me to tell me she is just back from the Vets and her lovely darling Westie called Dixie has cancer. I am breaking my heart for her losing this dear dog. He is beautiful, but stumbles around the home, with his head down to the floor as if the burden is too heavy for him. The cancer has reached his eyes and he is very poorly.
It is such a heavy burden for us now. I wish we could carry this for him. It is such a pitiful sight to see. and to live with.

Sherry I am so sorry for your loss of Bud. Pets are such a joy and comfort in life and when they leave this world we feels as if we won't ever recover. The pain of loss is unbearable. It is a sadness that lingers on for so long and stretches us beyond what we can often cope with. Taking one day at a time is helpful and helps us with our grief. One's life is richer for the pets we have, and put in our lives. It is worse when we know they are never coming back. WE feel this VOID and emptiness and loneliness that nothing or no one can fill.
It will take time for you and your husband to start feeling normal again. But it does happen. You won't feel this sad forever, even if it feels like it.
In time you may be able to have another cat for comfort and if only to Love again. We all need to put Love in our lives as it is how we thrive and function. So don't deny yourself this. You will know when the time is right. I wish you Comfort and Peace in your loss of Bud.
