I came here in 2004 having never owned cats before with Indie and his sister, they were 3 wks old rescue kittens. With the help of the people on this site and the aid of powdered baby milk and syringes we saved their lives.
We have had almost 9 years with Indie,he was a big cat but his nature sooo soft and loving and he was just a gentle giant. He never bought back birds, he bought me twigs, leaves, used tissues and even a yorkshire pudding! He was a playful cat and his sister not so much and when we got the new kitten in October he realised ( once he stopped being scared of him) that he had a rough and tumble play buddy and the two boys became best buddies.
My heart is broken, it feels like I have been kicked in the stomach and chest and my heart ripped out. I feel sick, sad and very numb. I am drained and exhausted and although it's only been a few hours I miss him so so much.
I know I did the right thing for my boy, and he looked so peaceful afterwards. We were treated so lovely and they really did all they could for us before, during and after. My boy will always be with me.
I thank my baby for walking over to me when I first saw them, he chose me and I took them both or his sister would of been the only one left in that hell hole. I thank the people here for telling me what to do for them... you guys were the first point of call to my almost 9 years of love and friendship and I could never thank you enough for that.
R.I.P darling Indie, forever in my heart xx
