sad news for me...

Fri Aug 12, 2005, 4:23 PM
today, my cat of 16 years had to be put to sleep.  she had adrenal cancer, and like my father, i saw her make that fall downhill and suffer the ravages, until she was so consumed by the cancer that she was a shell of her former self.  i made the decision to put her down when the beautiful light in her eyes had finally been snuffed out.  she seemed so frail she could hardly hold her head up, and i knew what little she was eating was feeding the cancer.
she was a proud cat in her day, and buff too.  it was like she almost walked with a skip.  
she had a big sweet tooth.  i remember as she was younger, she would steal any bags of candy and take off for my room.  that became more useful than i ever knew.  she also used to eat breakfast with me.  she would lick the sugar milk out of my cereal bowl.  she wouldn't drink just any old milk, it had to be sugar milk.
she was just a fun quarky cat, and the things that made her quarky, made her so loveable.  ill miss her...  :heart:

Come see my lovely Diva Sisters!

I remember when my cat got put down...
You get really attatched to them, and it's so hard to let them go. Just try remember all the things she used to do that made you smile. My mum used to wake up with the cat sitting (quite happily) on her head. Once she was awake, she'd nudge her with her paw until she got stroked. It was soooo cute.

we'll always miss those we love that went away... but dont think of her with so much sadness... think of her with the good memories of you two... think of the happiness she brought to you and the great times you had together... you'll be better, time will heal your wounds, and you'll smile again... hope to see you better soon, sweety... and if you need to talk, please, note me, i'm here for you!

It's really a good thing to talk about these things, as you feel a whole lot better for it, I was like that when my grandma died, I was working at the time and the only one in the family who couldn't go to hospital to say goodbye, but when you think about it, there isn't really any goodbyes as they're still there with you in spirit, :)

If you ever wanna talk, please drop me a note any time!

:hug:

all the best and have a great week.

Oh, sweetheart. :( I am so sorry to hear this. How sad I am for your loss. Sometimes we try to hold on to pets when we know we shouuld let them go especially when they are suffering. This hurts, I know. I have been there. But I tell myself that there is no more pain. I cherish my memories like I see you do. This is one of the many trials of life. I share your sorrow, reesa. hugs
