goodbye sweet maxine

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 



I only knew you for a short while but you will be with me forever in my heart. Your life wasn't a very happy one and you deserved so much better, I hope your last two weeks with us proved that someone did love and care for you and that not all people are heartless.


I only wish I had found you sooner before the illness had taken over. You were much too sweet for this earth, even after all you had been through, you could still manage to purr and head butt my legs, I hope you are happy and at peace now, I will miss you so much.
I feel blessed to have had you around even for such a short time and will always remember you, you will always have a place in my heart.





i took maxine to the vet last Saturday, she had cat aids and i was told it was one of the reasons she was still so skinny, she had lost a lot of fur on the drive and the vet told me she had kidney problems too, he said she was a very sick cat and might not last long.

i thought she looked okay but apparently she was in for a lot of pain, which is something i couldn't put her through after the life she'd had so i decided to have her put to sleep, it was the hardest decision i have ever had to make in my life and even now i feel like such a failure.

i couldn't stop crying for the rest of the weekend and i know i will for a while yet, she was such a beautiful and sweet cat, obviously too sweet for this world, it just seems so unfair because i found her a home and everything, i was sure she was going to have a happy life and i was wrong.

i know in my heart i did the right thing but i can't stop blaming myself for it, even though there was nothing i could do.

i know if she had been looked after and an indoor cat she would have been okay, when will people learn that if they want a cat they have to look after it, it just makes me so angry especially because the one's that suffer are the cats and they deserve a lot better than that.

i have to finish this, i can hardly see the screen lol, i just miss her so much

oh felicia, I am so very sorry

I didnt know the story of Maxine, but I have now read all about her. How wonderful of you to take her into your home and heart and although her time with you was short there was a reason that she was brought to you. Thankyou for helping her pass to the bridge with some diginty - she didnt pass over alone but with the love of someone that cared for her

RIP Maxine - you are in a beautiful place where nothing will ever hurt you again. You are now young & healthy once again - run through those fields little one

Thankyou huggles,

your words made me feel better , she did go with dignity and at least she knew someone cared for her and loved her, i just miss her and wish she could have gone to her new home but she was too sick, it wouldn;t have been fair on her and i know that, it still hurts though


thankyou all for your condolences, i miss maxine a lot but thanks to you guys, i know i did the right thing.

Condolences on your loss, Felicia. Maxine is so very beautiful, and that little mustache! Such beauty and love - indeed she is a wonderful companion to the angels You will surely be blessed for making her last days full of love and care. Maxine left this world knowing that she was special, and you gave her the final gift of a painless, dignified passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of your loss.

Thankyou for your reply,

she was beautiful, i know i did the right thing and am feeling a little better but every now and then i start crying again, it just hurts so much


she was always so loving, she was like a little shadow and would just sit in the kitchen and watch me, she was always purring but she was always laying down too and she never played with any toys, like she didn't have the energy....it just breaks my heart

What a beautiful Girl!!!!!
Ohhh and though she was very unlucky BEFORE she found YOU.... she was the luckiest cat in the world (in her eyes too im sure).
You are such a wonderful person for taking this helpless baby in and loving and caring for her when no one else would.
I praise you for that.
You are one of very few.
And Maxine knew that.

I am sorry for your pain, but very glad that sweet Maxine had someone to truly love her and care for her at the end. Now she can be over the bridge knowing someone will come to join her later.

Rest in peace Maxine. You really were loved, if only for a short time. I wish you had known that love and care for all your time here on earth.
