Positive thoughts & prayers needed for my old kitty.
Harold is not doing well. I am going to have to try and get her to the vet tomorrow night. I think it might be time to put her to sleep. I am so sad and am sobbing right now. Her tummy is rock hard and she is dehydrated.
I was hoping I would be able to wait until Friday to bring her but it is not fair for her. I have had her since she was 4 months old and she is now 20 years and four months old.
I so hate this time in a pet's life. She is constipated and dehydrated. I have given her mineral oil for the constipation and glycerin suppositories and syringed water in her mouth.
My two previous old cats both lived over 20 and Harold has done so too.
Please send positive thoughts her way. My heart is breaking. She is just one very old girl.
I'm so very sorry for you. I'm sure Harold know how much you loved and cared for her these past 20 years.
Loads of supportive thoughts are headed your way. Cat's getting close and he's only been with me for seven years. Twenty years is a long time to have a friendship. Harold loves and trusts you to do the right thing for him. I'm so sorry. Can you take Thursday off of work?
(((( Di )))) :)>>>
just know that you have given harold and all your other furbabies wonderful years of love, support and family!
:'( I am so sorry! I hate that time too..... I'm thinking about you and your kitty for sure. Just remember what a wonderful life you have given her and keep lots of tissue (for you) close by. I like the one's with lotion in them when I'm really upset and crying alot ;)
((((Di))))) The babies and I will be thinking of you and Harold tomorrow. Sending much love your way :)>>>
So sorry your kitty isn't feeling good. My thoughts are with you :-*
I am so sorry for you and your baby. I have had my kitties since i was only a year old and they are now going on 17 years...i know that when it is their time i will need the support of others who know what it is like to have such a long friendship. My healing thoughts go to you and Harold :)>>> :)>>>
I'm sorry to hear that..been through it a few times. My condolances
Oh, bless. Poor Di. I know how much Harold means to you. :'(
And you know how much you mean to us. :)>>>
You are in my pocket, both of you.
You and Harold will be in my thoughts today. Much love to you both.
I happy you're spending this last day with her. You and Harold can have some alone time and you can tell her how much you love her, and she can smell you and get some comfort.
I'm glad you could be with her when she passed. I hope you're doing alright and that the furries/featheries (?) are doing OK with the change.
Oh Di :'( :'( :'( :'(
I'm sitting here crying as I read about your last day with Harold. I'm so glad you and she spent it together and that some of the other babies shared the day with y'all. I know it gave her much comfort that you were with her until the very end.
I'll be keeping you and the other babies in my prayers tonight . . .
Hey Di--let me know if you need anything--big hugs to you and much love! ((((((((HUGS)))))))
I'm sorry. You've lost a lot of furry friends over the last several years, but that's because you've opened your home and heart up to so many. There's that question about whether it's the quantity or quality of life that's important. With you, Harold had both.
There at times in life where words can fail. Know that you you have my sympathy and empathy in your time of grief. My hope is that you will take this opportunity to celebrate the life of a beautiful being, one who brought joy and positive energy into the world simply by existing. ...That is the nature of innocence, and that is what should be celebrated and protected by mankind.
Di, I'd share the "rainbow bridge" poem with you... but you are the one who shared it with me many moons ago... and girl, when you get there, you are going to be bowled over! Fur, feathers, slobber and tears will be everywhere... and Harold will be there too!
Oh Di, I am so sorry that Harold has passed. It sounds like she went quietly and knowing that she was loved, and I know that any animal that lives with you and knowing your tender care has been privileged and cherished. She was a lucky beastie.
I so truly miss her although I still have 9 furred and feathered.
It doesn't matter how many you have, none of them will ever replace Harold. I still cry for Houdini almost every day and I have eight other cats. This is something so hard for many people to grasp. Several people told me that 'at least I had others' when Houdini passed. I could have screamed. Each one is an individual. Cherish your memories.
I agree with this. I think its really okay to grieve what we are missing even if we have others to help us through the pain. There is no replacing those who have gone on, and there is no set time for grief either. Pain is such a personal thing, healing happens differently for every one. I still cry about my goat, Delight when I think of her, too. Hang in there Di, I know you know it will get easier. It will. Sending love to you and all your critters.
