Goodbye my little Angels - Yuki and Hitomi

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I found my little angel, Yuki this morning and she had passed sometime during the night. I took Hitomi in this morning and her prognosis was poor to live and the vet said she was suffering and the most humane thing to do would be to put her down.So I made the hard decision to put her down. That poem summed up exactly what it felt like to leave the vets office. My heart is broken right now and I'm not sure what to do. I'm glad I have this place to come to for some comfort and peace of mind.

I'm so sorry for your loss. You loved Hitomi so much, that even though it was so hard for you, you helped him to the Rainbow Bridge. Yuki and Hitomi had such short lives here on this earth, but they were well loved.

Thats one tough decision to make. Thank God she had a strong meowmy who knew what was in her best intrest. Even though it sucks it was the best for her. I'm sorry you found Yuki the way you did, that must have been just awful. I'm very sorry, but as I said thankfully they had you to love and care for them in their short time here. RIP Yuki and Hitomi- play happily over RB.

I really did love them... maybe more than I should have. I was told once that if you love something too much that it is a sin, so maybe God took them to teach me a lesson on being able to love something, but not fall apart if something went wrong.

I'm worried about this as I am going to school to be a teacher and if I want to last they tell me I have to stop being such a "bleeding heart".

Condolences on 2 difficult losses. But remember, God, who knew you before you were yet conceived, gave you that "bleeding heart". So don't lose that wonderful gift - it is compassion, caring and the courage to do something about it! As long as you have a "balance perspective", you will do wonderfully. And, IMO, children need more teachers who are in touch with their inner heart as well as with God & all His creation. And I'm sure your 2 fur-angels are up there nodding in agreement. Take Care, Susan

I know it hasn't been long since they passed and I'm still reeling from having to put down Yuki, but everyone around me expects me to move on just like that. They're like, it was just a cat, get over it. i'm having such a hard time because I've had to closet my grief. This is my only outlet. I just find I had such a connection with them because I took care of them till the end. It was like they were my kids cuz that is how I would have taken care of my son.

Well, sorry, but those people just frankly don't understand!!! Susan (Catsknowme) said it very well. When we stop caring about the innocents then we're lost as a society. You will cry and you will grieve, but you will have your memories, and it may even trigger you to do something great because of this one great loss in your life. Don't ever want to give up your caring side. Hugs - Kim.

That is not what is meant by loving something too much being a sin. That idea stems from the fact that you don't put anything above God. However, of course when you are a parent you love your child dearly.

I attend chuch services every Sunday, and even teach the kids class. If my child is sick, and I have to stay home and care for him, does that mean I put my child above God, and sinned? No, that means I am loving and caring for my child as God meant me to.

I believe we can find lessons in many of life's tragedies, but I don't think God is unloving or cruel. I don't think God took your babies to hurt you. I think they just got sick and died, unfortunately.

When I was in nursing school, for one class we trained at a nursing home. We were told not to hug the patients. One old man I took care of sent all his ties home with his wife to have them cleaned, so he would look nicer. When he wanted a hug on my last day, I hugged him. He died several months later. I am pretty sure that one hug did not do him any harm.

With patients and students, you do have to set a bit of a boundary, but a good teacher really loves and cares for his (her) students. You will learn, as I did, to walk the fine line between being too emotional, or not being emotional enough.

I am sorry about the loss of your kitties. Often people, especially people without pets, cannot understand how a pet lover feels when they lose a furbaby. I have six darling kittens in my spare bedroom, and would be crushed to lose any, let alone all! Of course it will take time for you to heal!

I have had trouble reading the kitten thread, with your losses, and Solarity Bengal's, and the others. If I am so saddened to lose kittens I never met, how much more is it painful to you, their Meowmie?!? Please share your grief with your husband, and with us at TCS. Everyone else can go jump in a lake!

Hugs to you and your son and Momma cat at this trying time.
