yesterday i had to put my pal of 15 years to sleep after she had battled for 5 weeks with a tumour common in elderly cats melingloma it was the hardest thing ive ever had to do. i probabley should of done it sooner but just couldnt let her go her last week was spent lying in her basket only just managing to get up to eat and use her tray and that was usually with help from me
i could see in her eyes she was fed up and had enough .I stayed up all tue night with her and i just knew i couldnt let her suffer anymore she had no quality of life and i was only keeping her with me for my own selfish reasons i didnt want her to go.It was peacfull she just went to sleep and all the stress in her face lifted away the vet and nurse where wonderfull so kind .Today i have tidied up her little room that had become like a hospital room! putting away her basket and toys she gave me 15 wonderful years we have been through so much together i miss her so much .

I'm so very sorry That must have been so hard for you to do, but you saw it in her eyes in the end.

You have 15 years of happy memories and she'll always be alive as long as she's still in your thoughts

RIP little one and play safely over the bridge with the other little kitties

Sorry to hear of the passing of your wonderful companion. I lost one of mine on Dec 12, 2005, no warning, her name was Strauss (13 yrs). Your baby and my baby are most likely introducing themselves right now along with all the others. They are in a happy place right now, waiting for us.

Hang around here for support, it works, its sure helped me a lot.

Take care and God Bless

Oh, that brings back memories of when my kitty Mattie died. She was Festus' sister, and jet black. I think I waited a few days beyond when she was ready, because I kept thinking just one more day. But she went very quickly and peacefully, too. I am glad to have Festus to comfort me. Mattie always layed in the laundry baskets, and now Festus does that, too.

No one can ever take away the pain of losing a beloved pet, but another kitty can help ease your heart. I hope you have another at home to help you through this difficult time. If not, know that in time you will find another special cat to love.

Condolences on your loss. After 15 years together, it is really a major life change to lose your kitty and best friend. Just know that she is now happy and well. Rest in peace, beloved kitty.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your adorable little girl. I, too, kept my girl of 19 years too long, and now I regret that. I'm sure she's sending you love and leading you to a new cat companion to take care of you.

nearly a week has passed now doesent get any easier through the day im fine too busy i think about her all the time but somehow its not to bad but at night when i go to bed i just cant sleep im awake until 4.00 or 5.00 am picturing her in her basket and reliving those final minutes at the vets when she went to sleep my mind is full of what ifs and questioning did i do the right thing? . I am lucky i have support from my family especially my grandma 88 years old and a cat mom all her life she had seven at one time . I just cant get rid of this feeling of terrible guilt , takes time i know but its hard.
The worst is comming home after ive been out she was always at the door waiting for me even at the beginning of her iilness she somehow mangaged to get to the door to greet me she managed to do this up until her last week ,may sound daft but i miss the sound of her she was a very vocal cat always had something to say! it was as if she was talking to you well i suppose she was.Thanks to everyone who has sent messages it helps glad i found this site .take care everyone x
