Thank you. I lit one as well. Maybe in a few days when im feeling a bit better ill make a little cross or plaque for her. The ground near the fence was softer but mum insisted we put her in our garden bed where this nice native plant will grow bigger and shade her. The ground was so hard. Im freaking out about going outside to put the rubbish out, i dont go out the back very often. She isnt very deep. I am freaking out about another cat digging there

What a beautiful, beautiful baby girl she was. I'm so sorry you had to go through this.

As to Charlie. Make sure you give him lots of play time. Make a wand toy - a leather shoe lace taped to a dowel rod or even a stick makes a great toy. Just knot the loose end and he's got something to chase when you make it go.

It'll take some adjustment - but if you keep him stimulated - get some toys, and switch them up every few days - he'll do just fine. I know you're worried about your Dad letting him out - but if you help Charlie adjust to being inside by helping him get his exercise and staying occupied, that will really help everyone, I think.

As to the grass, you can go outside and clip some for him! Or as Whiskerynature pointed out, you can grow "cat grass" for him! Take a little pot of soil, and plant some oats and/or barley in it. He'll mow it himself as it starts to grow - or you can clip it for him.

Jasmine - RIP, sweet one. You were very, very loved, and you will be very, very missed.

Mum said we will definately keep Charlie inside from now on. It's just a matter of building some sort of outdoor enclosure so he doesn't go stir crazy. He peed under my bed this morning and now i realise he's done it before when i moved my bed a while ago, i wasnt sure what the smell was because it was faint. Ive sprayed stuff under there and hopefully he will stick to the litter tray. I still haven't moved my fleecy blanket. I bought it last year for the colder weather, and when charlie was recovering from his injuries it was jazzy who started sleeping more in my room, the blanket it all crumpled up in the corner and it has her indentation on it. Charlie went to smell is this morning and decided he didnt want to curl up on it. Even though they fought a bit and didn't sleep together, i think he knows she's gone. She was the first sister he had. The last kitty who passed away when we had charlie was a boy. I usually wear dark clothes, but im in black head to toe which feels apropriate. To those people (not on this forum) who dont have pets or dont form that special bond, you are missing out. They arent just pets, they are family members, like having your own child.

i need more sleep

I'm sorry for your loss! She knew you loved her! It wasn't your fault...I'm sure she was comforted in her final minutes to be near you.

Oh god, not Jasmine

I am so so sorry..I can only imagine how lost you must feel. Please know that this wasn't your fault, and it was just her time. These things happen sometimes.

May Jas rest in peace Poor little baby.

I think she was already gone when i picked her up from my neighbours yard. Her bowls had opened, her pupils were dialated, she was limp, there was nothing. I dont even know how she ran over the fence, she landed right over the fence in the yard, there was nothing broken, it only got her leg. How did this happen!?!? i thought she would be curled up whimpering in the yard with a broken foot or hip or something, not dead!!! It happened in a second. I need to know what happened.

I feel so lost. It's been 48 hours since she died. I know i have to keep reassuring Chuckie he is still loved it's just so hard. Everytime i cuddle him i cry and i worry i wont be as good a mother to him because im grieving

I could offer guesses as to what may have happened to her but there is really no way to know now.The important thing is this wasn't your fault. And, the fact that she loved you and wouldn't want you to blame yourself. Sometimes things happen that are horrible and there isn't any explanation. It will take time to get over the loss of your friend. But, someday you will be able to look back at all of the happy times you had with her and her death won't be the most potent memory of her. Jasmine is waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge.

What a horrible shock! I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Please don't beat yourself about this -- you did not do this, and you had no control over it. Seems it was very quick for Jasmine, and she won't likely have suffered. Please be gentle with yourself.

RIP Sweet Jasmine

She was the most crazy, loving and funny calico i have ever met. I will never forget her. Luckily when i got my new camera for my bday a few months ago, i took a couple of videos of her.

I know how it feels to lose a treasured cat very suddenly. Don't second guess yourself-I did that so much when I lost Sheba... "if I only looked for her""-I thought she was in the house but she wasn't. I think many of us here have lost very special cats in the past. Take care of yourself and treasure your memories.

I'm so sorry you lost your lovely girl (I also have a "Jasmine"). I once saw this happen to a cat of mine as a child, and I know how you must feel.

If you need to talk, you've come to the best place--the people here are magnificent. Also, feel free to PM me, if you'd like to chat.

Bless you, sweet Jasmine flower.

Sending you lots of love and hugs,

Dad put her on a towel and banket in the cat carrier with the lid off on the back porch so she is getting sunshine. she died 1.5 hours ago and charlie is my room im never letting him out of the house i cant lose another cat. we only took her to the vet this morning a few hours ago to get somen ointment for her eye and she was only 2 years old and perfectly healthy and it didnt feel like anything was broken and she died as soon as she jumped over the fence i shiuldnt have picked her up its all my fault this woman kept saying it was in in the bigger plan but she could have lived for another 15 years and i killed her and i dont know what to do my head is so sore and it doesnt feel real i just held her for ages this is the firs titme ive held a dead animal. dad said he wanted to protect me so all other cats we had he buried before i could see them he didnt want me to see them injured and dead and i had a big duscissuion not long ago that i wanted him to let me see if an animal dies.i called up tristan but he is at work and wont be here for another 3 hours or so and we cant call up mum she works in the city over an hour away im sorry about my spelling i dont care how it looks i feel so horrible






Sweetheart, it's not "your fault" and you "didn't kill her"! These things happen. Don't blame yourself. The best thing to do from now on, is to make your cats be indoor cats. Mine used to be outdoor cats, until a fews years ago, and I do think it's better for them (but they can still get outside, no matter how careful you are--but, that can be controlled).

I'[m so sorry for your loss, she looks like a wonderful, beautiful cat, and I'm sure she was.
It is not in the slightest bit your fault, you could never have been able to know what what going to happen, and you couldn't have stopped it.
Things like this happen, it's absolutely awful when they do, but don't blame yourself.

Dragoriana, I read your story and it made me cry.

I just lost one of my cats recently; it is a very hard thing to deal with.

Jasmine was a gorgeous cat, and that picture of her as a wee kitten is soo cute.


My cat, Boycatt, died recently from kidney failure. I feel very responsible, because the vet said it was either from a genetic problem, or he got into something like antifreeze outside. But cats love being outside, although it is dangerous.. I know mine would HATE being just inside.
He was one of my very first cat's, Kitty Kitty Bang Bang, kittens.
We were going to have him put to sleep, because his chances were about 20%... but they gave him lots of fluids and we kept him at home for two days.. and we took him to the vet on a Friday, and he seemed much better. So they said we should keep him over the weekend, and he may improve much more.
Rapidly over the weekend, he began getting worse.

He passed away that Sunday night. It was one of the worst things I've ever seen... to see an animal you love die a horrible death is awful.

My best wishes are with you.
