Hearts are broken. :( Can't stop crying. I feel lost.
She was the litter mate of the one we lost two years ago.
She was 17 and was diagnosed with a brain tumor on March 18th. This picture was taken a couple days after she was diagnosed. The vet said we could take her home and make her comfortable. She was healthy otherwise. Never cried out. She ate up until this morning. She passed away in her sleep today.
I know so many here have been thru this. I am so heartbroken. She was just a wonderful girl.

    I'm so sorry. My little man died December 29, I still "see" him out of the corner of my eye.

    It has always been my belief that it is one of the hardest things to go through in life to lose an animal who loved you unconditionally and who you loved unconditionally back. I'm so sorry for your loss

    Thank you all so much for the kind words. It helps so much for the support and to be reminded she did have a great run. A very pampered and spoiled 17 year run.

    I can't tell you how sad threads like this make me. I'm so sorry. I can imagine what you are feeling.

    I have two and one that is getting older. He's had some health issues and each time I worry. Yesterday we had him at the vet he was so sick. Turns out he might have been in a cat fight. The antibiotics are helping a lot. Before we discovered what was making him so sick (infection), we were scared he might have a serious illness. He was so sick he couldn't even meow.

    I love the picture of your two cats looking out the door. My two do that all the time.

    Again, I am so sorry for your loss.

    I'm so sorry. Your pictures and all the comments in this thread are making me cry because we recently lost our cat too. I'm so glad that your kitty was sleeping comfortably -- at home -- when she went. She looks so comfortable and loved in those pictures. You gave her a wonderful life; I can tell.

    Wurly and proud!

    im so sorry about ur kitty. I truly hope time will dull the pain and u can remember without heartache the beauty and joy your kitty brought to your life.
  • curlylew66curlylew66 Posts: 1,685Registered Users
    Again, many thanks for your thoughts and words. My heart and hugs go out to all who have or will go thru this.
    I know she is in a better place and happy.
    It is a comfort that she went peacefully at home in her bed. I have had to make that decision in the past, to take them to the vet, and that is so hard. But you know deep in your heart when you take them it is the right time and the right decison.

    I'm so sorry for your loss, I have a cat and before her we had a cat we basically were cat sitting who ended up living with us well she knew him as a young kitty and he got sick and passed away, he was the only cat she was actually friendly with and cuddled with and played with. My heart goes out to you, losing such a sweet pet is so hard.
