HE was a mistake I went to the humane society for a older cat and I saw Moe the tag said 9 years old I ask the attendant if I could see him she open the cage he jump up on my lap pawed at my chin and purred like saying please take me home when iI did pick him up I found out he was only 3 years old I couldn't say I didn't want him so home we went to my older cat who 10 at that time he would chase her and she would run under the bed that was their game early this year FEB I felt a lump on his hind Quarter I had it removed it was cancer but the doctor said she was sure she got it all last week he just wasn't himself so I took him to my vet she examined him gave him some fluids and we went home two days later I took him back this time for x-rays doc returned and told me the bad news he had a growth around his heart which was inoperable and ask me what I wanted to do and the decision I had to make was what I always dreaded was to put my Moe to sleep now I have unbearable pain that I have ever felt this is the third friend that I lost this way even though I have my other cat it just is not the same my eyes have not been dry for the past 4 days 4 days I am glad I am retired I wouldn't be able to work I have never felt so much pain in my life sorry yes I did I had to put 2 other pets to sleep I forgot how painful it was ,I know it will be along journey for me again but I will not forget my MOE

Beautiful Moe
by: Diane

We all know here on this site the incredible pain that overwhelms us when one of our furbabies leaves us. I'm so sorry you had to make that terrible decision for Moe, but you have to know you spared him a lot of pain and suffering.Our lives change forever and it takes an incredible amount of time to heal the wounds to our hearts. Cry all you want.... my Chrissy died almost a year ago and I still can't say her name out loud without tears flooding my eyes. Moe will live on forever in your heart and you two have wonderful memories you can share until you meet again at the Rainbow Bridge. Please take care of yourself, Moe would NOT want you to be so sad. RIP beautiful Moe!

I'm really sorry you had to put your beloved cat Moe to sleep. I know how you feel because i recently had to have one of our cats put to sleep. It is a heartbreaking decision to have to make. I don't know how long you had Moe but it sounds like you gave him lots of love he wouldn't have known otherwise. All of our cats are rescue cats and they know they are loved, that is for sure. I also lost 3 cats recently. I know it hurts a lot. I hope and pray in time you can remember him in a special way, maybe with a plaque or poem or something. Our pets will be remembered in our hearts always until we meet again at Rainbow Bridge.
