My boy

I had to have my beautiful cat put to sleep last week and I cannot understand how devestated I am. He would have been 19 years old in August and had had kidney problems for a few months although the vet agreed he had a good quality of life. Then last Thursday he had a seizure and I knew the quality had gone. So I had to do what I have been dreading for months and take him to be euthanized. I'm trying to find comfort from this dreadful pain. I'm thinking of him all the time. The love he gave me was unequalled and I miss him so so much.

Ifound this website because I don't think anyone I know can possibly understand how I'm feeling but I have had comfort reading other stories on here from people who have suffered too.
Thank you for reading this. Jane.

I share your pain
by: Lorraine

It is hard to believe that a cat can live to be 19 but they do and become your babies in every way. I also lost my baby Himilayan cat who was 18 years old a few weeks ago. The pain is excruciating. I think the love and caring that is shared is so deep that only you could understand, others don't unfortunately. The daily rituals can be so raw when you look for them and they are not there. So sharing your beloved pets and their lives are a good way to let some of the pain diminish and we are all here for you. I will probably share my story too. Thanks for sharing yours.

Thank you Marie for your kind comment. I'm accepting his loss a little easier now and realising that if he was still with me he would have started to suffer.I still miss him enormously though and never an hour goes by without me thinking about him. I do remember the sweet happy times we had together and I will never forget him while I am still on this earth.
I'm so sorry that you are also grieving for Arnie but I agree with you that one day we will all be reunited and that our beloved pets are waiting for us at rainbow bridge. God bless Jane.

I understand
by: Marie

I understand every bit of your pain losing your long time pal of 19 years. You were blessed to have him that long but it doesn't seem to matter because you just want him back. I lost Arne to a coyote last July 17, 2015. I miss so much. We had
such a closeness. I shed tears often for him. Be happy for all the sweet days you had with him. I believe we will see our animals that we loved again. God said he went to prepare a place for us and I am sure animals will certainly be in heaven with us. It says the lion lays down next to the lamb, so I believe the animals we loved will be with us in heaven. I hope this is a comfort to you.
