The hardest thing to say is good bye


Recommended Posts

My condolences as well Dave. I had one cat for 21 years (Kansas) and when he went down I mourned for 2 years. Then adopted 2 cats (brothers) named aptly "Rock & Roll" (Roll was the fat one). Now both of them are gone and after burying 3 cats in my back yard - I have decided no more pets. Rock would run away when I started playing thru an amp here at home, but Roll would run to lay right in front of the amp and twitch all over while I played. He loved it. They were quite the pair. Can't deal with burying anymore little friends. They all have very unique personalities and expressions that emote human qualities that are just endearing and hard to let go of. My sympathies.

Truly sorry for the loss of your good friend. It's never easy.......I was told by a someone much wiser than me that the reason our dogs/cats live a relatively shorter life than we do is so we can own several of them throughout our own lives. I wish you the best.

This is bad. :( How did that happen? I hope Beni was able to pass away in dignity.

 

May Beni rest in cat's heaven, and your thankful memories be your companion.

 

Beni died in his sleep and did not suffer at all. I brought him to the Vet yesterday because he had gotten very skinny although he had a good appetite and was eating like a horse. They found he was very anemic and suspected he had a tumor in his spleen. They gave me some medications and said to bring him back on Monday. Poor guy never made it. He was a great cat, had a very sweet nature and was good company. I'm very glad he didn't suffer.

 

Thank you all for your kind words. It's nice to have a place like this to share, even the bad stuff…

There's not much worse (if anything) than losing a loved one; human, animal, it doesn't matter. There was a mutual bond that has been severed in the mortal world.

 

RIP Beni, may you find mice a-plenty and scratch posts everywhere you turn from here henceforth :(

Dave, so sorry to hear that, mate. As a cat-lover and owner, I know how it feels. Gosh, the number of times I've been reduced to floods of tears in the vet's because of this...

 

I hope you get two new kittens to focus your attention on, like we did when our last cat died. [thumbup]

Sorry for your loss Dave!! It's so gut wrenching to lose a friend (human or furry). Glad it was peaceful for him (we should all be so fortunate) and you didn't have to make that awful decision on your own. The loss is great, but the love will carry on and I believe pets & people want you to do well, so honor him with taking good care of yourself. If the time comes to make a new Friend (never REPLACE), then do so w/o guilt. Best honor is to want the love of a new friend like the one you've lost.

 

God Bless, hang tight!!

I guess it was best for him to not make it back to the doctor, and to find the final relief in his sleep. I think this is a grace to any creature when the last moment comes this way.

 

A cat strayed into my family's former house on May 2nd, 2000, and my son and me had to leave it to my divorced wife and my daughter on April 15th, 2013. She was in sad despair for months, wailing all through the night, and is still very skinny despite of eating well. [unsure]

 

She is missing my son and me obviously. When my son is at his mother's and sister's new dwell, she is with him most of the time, and when I come there for bringing or fetching my children, she stays by my side miaowing at me. Luckily, she seems to put up with the situation a little better with time but she just reflects the bad of it all I think. :(
