Lost my baby this morning :-(

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
This morning I had to put my childhood cat down. Bobo was almost 19 years old. I can't remember the day we got her but I do remember when she was a year old and scratched my chicken pox. I wanted a cat so bad and my mom said she had looked everywhere for one but could not find one. Finally one day she came across BoBo and bought her for 10 dollars. I am now 23 years old and I can remember so many memories, even going back to kindergarden when I had the chicken pox. Over the past 6 months BoBo had been declining. She never went to the Vet. She did not like to leave the house. She was never outside except on the porch with me. If I was crying a mile away she would find me and try and make me feel better. Last night we experienced her having 4 seizures, thats when I knew it was time. So this morning I called the Vet. I always said to myself that I could never do this to her but I knew it was the right thing. She had 2 seizures this morning before we left and one at the Vet while waiting. I am so upset. The house is so empty without her here. Tonight is going to be rough though bc she always slept on our bed and snuggled with me for a few minutes. I just don't know what to do. I don't think I am going to get through this anytime soon. My husband is a Police Officer so he works a lot of hours. I am dealing with this all day/night by myself and that makes it that much harder. Everyone in the family knew that BoBo was my cat...she followed me around everywhere, she never wanted to leave my side. I am about to lose it so I am going to stop where I am at. Thank you for taking the time to read my story.

Rest in Peace BoBo...momma misses you so much

I'm so sorry for your loss. I can tell Bobo was a much loved cat for 19 wonderful years. What a blessing you were for each other! You're not going through this alone; we're all here for you.

RIP Bobo

I am so very, very sorry to hear of the loss of your precious lifelong friend BoBo -- growing up, my "big brother" Peedie was there by my side from the very first, and he, too, lived to be 19. Since that time, many of my beloved feline companions have followed him over the Bridge, and I look forward to reuniting with them one fine day. As all of "my" cats are always rescued, I always try to do three things to memorialize a lost loved one: make a memory book with photos and stories which will comfort me as time goes by; plant a plant above their resting place as a living memorial that will endure; and most importantly, while no life is ever "replaced" by another, I know that as rescues, each of my beloved cats would want me to rescue another deserving cat and give him or her the love that continues, saving yet another precious life. So that is what I do. Maybe, in time, BoBo's spirit will guide you to adopt another cat or cats as well -- what better living tribute could there be to remember one so loved and important in your life? And as your husband works to protect and serve his community, so, too, you will be protecting and serving a needy cat or cats. Something to think about as time goes by, and your loving memories of BoBo comfort you.

I am so sorry hon. .. I know exactly how you seel. I lost my childhood cat a few years back, and to this day five years later, you know I still cry when I read of someone elses pain, or think of her again. . .

Time will heal, but you will never forget. I hope you feel better soon, and know she is happy. . .

I am so sorry for your loss! I know what its like to lose one that you grew up with and I think that is one of the hardest you will go through. At least she had a long, happy life but it doesn't make it any easier. Big hugs to you.

AWww I'm so sorry for your loss. It is very hard to lose a faithful friend, yet alone a faithful childhood friend. BoBo is playing like a kitten again over the rainbow bridge.

Thank you to everyone for the thoughts and hugs. I am taking one day at a time. I have no energy to do anything and find myself just sitting around doing nothing. Oh how I miss her so much

It brought tears to my eyes to read your story. I am so, so sorry for your loss. I joined TCS last week after losing my buddy, Lyndsey, after 16 1/2 years. You will find a lot of support here. I know I have.

It is truly heart breaking when our precious kitty babies cross to the Bridge.
Your story about Bobo brought tears to my eyes.
Play at the Bridge darling Bobo until you are with your Mommy once again.
