tuff man sweetie

i've just lost my little girl stripes last night 12/14/12. i have had her for 3yrs never thought i would be feeling this upset for having her for a short time. the first day i met her she was the size of a softball so cute. she stole my heart and i didn't mind. she was my ace boon coo, my right hand feline.
i thought i was just a dog person but she prove me wrong and it was great . i still haven't slept yet but hopefully writing this will help me cope. the wonderful thing she would do when i get home she'll be at the door waiting for me which i found it odd i thought this cat was part dog. lol and when it was time to feed her she would run to the door and jump and grab between the door frame and slide down like a fireman feline. it was soo cool. i miss her soo much. for the last few days before she left us she wasn't herself so we decide to take to the vet for thier opinion and it wasn't good she has be suffering for a long time so we decided to let her go to sleep. it was best for us and her. i hope she forgives me for our decision but i counld'nt bear to see her in pain. i'm a grown man i thought i would never act like a 5yr. eye so soar from wiping nose so red from blowing throat hurt so much. my dear stripes l love you soo much!!!. i would like to thank this site for having this and letting me express my feeling and thoughts of a loss companion. i would see u later .

much love,

I'm sorry for your loss
by: Jackie

I am so sorry for your loss of Sweetie. Like you, I've always thought of myself as a dog person, until- My stray cat Minnie who I had for only 6 months. I lost MinMin on December 17th. I still haven't slept either. It is as if we are on their sleep schedule.
I wish you a good nights sleep. It is hard to celebrate Christmas with humans when one is so tired.
There is nothing that I know to say to make you feel better. Just know that I care.

Tuff Man Sweetie

Never apologize for showing or sharing your feelings. That's what a real man, or woman, does.

And that little cat wasn't just a cat, she was part of your family.

I know exactly how you feel. Have buried three wonderful feline friends and, just recently, had to give my sweet, 4-year old tortoishell to a friend. She never recovered from my husband's catastrophic stroke last February. She badly needed all the love and attention I just couldn't give her. We were both grieving so much. I gave her to a friend who's a single Dad with a 2-1/2 year old son. They have a huge house and garden and apparently she loves them both and is really happy there.

Wish I could say the same for myself.

Give yourself time to grieve and then maybe adopt another furry critter. I've usually waited at leas six months before I was ready.

Good luck.
