It's been almost a year since Andy died. Well, I guess it's been 10 months. I'm still depressed, I feel sad, I feel guilty...I still tear up when I think about him. Every time I think about Andy I see him, saucer-eyed and cowering in the corner of that oxygen tank. That was the last time I saw him. He had to spend his last 24 hours alone, and scared. I think about the time about 2 months before he died when I yelled at him for breaking my vase. Then I think about the first signs there was something wrong. One attack because I took him to the vet, and one because I tried to wash his face off. Everything just happened so fast, then he was gone. You don't plan on losing your baby at a year old; I was counting on another 15 or 20 years. I just hope he had a good life, and that he knew how much we loved him.

Your right, he was still a baby, and too young to leave for the bridge But know that he's healthy again over there and being looked after by all the TCS cats that have also crossed over

RIP Andy

i'm so sorry you're feeling this way. i too struggled massively after having to have my precious boy pts having seen him go from normal, cuddly, happy cat in just 3 weeks to a skinny, blind, confused and sad creature. my vet couldn't confirm it but i'm sure it was FIP.

it was a year ago last month and it was so painful reliving it. time does ease the pain though. we love them so much and want to share our lives for years and years but so often this isn't possible.

try to remember the good times you had together. this is what would have carried your baby across the bridge, your love for him.

go easy on yourself.

I'm so sorry your going through this. I understand what you are going through. I have a couple special cats that I have never got over, and it has been almost 4 years for one of them. He was my very special cat. He was 14 1/2 when I lost him and it was so fast. He started to deteriorate very quickly and my vet went in and did exploratory surgery. They found cancer and I had him pts while he was under anesthestic. I never got to say good bye. It still tears me up to think about it.
