My Kitty has gone to sleep
I had my 14 year old kitty, Prissy put to sleep this morning, she has had kidney issues for sometime, and the past 2 days she has been peeing blood, I didn't want her to suffer anymore..I have had her since she was 5 weeks old, she was my baby girl, she will be missed..RIP Prissy...you were loved
My 2 other cats Tubby and Wiggles have been sniffing around looking for her, even my Son's black lab senses something isn't right...animals are so perceptive,..I'm sure they will miss her as much as I do.
I'm so sorry, potatohead. My heart goes out to you.
so sorry, it's such a hard thing to go through!
i'm sorry to hear about your loss potatohead. sometimes the most painful choices we make for our fur babies are with their best interests in mind.
This exactly... I am so sorry and hope you feel better soon <3
((((potatohead)))) I can't imagine your loss. I hope the love other your other kitties helps to comfort you during this time.
It is always hard to lose a beloved pet. I still cry over my cats, dogs and chicken i've lost over the years. Remember the good times and love your other animals until your heart stops aching. That always helped me through the grief.
I'm so sorry to hear that. When my beloved cat passed last year, my other fur babies helped me out. I think they were just as sad about it as I was.
That's so sad. Our pets are so close to us, and it's so sad when they leave us. She'll always be in your heart.
No matter how many times you have to go through it, losing a friend never gets any easier... I am so sorry!
This may sound weird to some folks, but it helps me:
In the pagan tradition of the 'All Hallows' holiday, every Halloween night (or the night before, if other social obligations/ kid stuff/ etc. is planned for actual Halloween night) my hubby & I make a fire in the outdoor fireplace, take out a couple bottles of wine, some catnip, & some dog treats, & talk about friends & family members (2-legged *or* 4-legged) that aren't living but are still 'with us', in terms of loving memories/ impact on our lives. For every person we talk about, we pour a sip of wine into the fire, & for every 4-legged friend, we toss in a treat of the appropriate variety... We always end up sitting out until the wee hours, getting a little tipsy, telling stories & reminiscing about pets & friends & such who aren't with us anymore. There might be intermittent tears, but overall it's very comforting & uplifting... It's kind of a way to keep their memories alive, but without dwelling their loss all the time, ya know?
I don't know if some kind of 'family tradition' like that might help, to make letting go at least a little less painful...? Loss sucks, all the way around... You did what was best for your friend, and can know that your cat had a good, happy life, and isn't suffering now... But I'm so sorry you're having to go through it! (hug!)
