Sorry for your loss Broccoli, why can't cats and dogs live longer.
She had a pretty decent innings for a cat, and when they get old, you get some warning that it's coming, it's still sad when they leave....
Sorry for your loss Brocc. I lost mine two weeks ago to lymphona.
sorry for your loss too. Let's have a pity party.
Know how that feels, Broccoli.
Being owned by you I'm sure she had a happy life. Manhugs to you and JugV2 both...
Sorry for your loss man
might be posting something tomorrow
no warning... We put him in for dental a week ago... and he hasn't eaten since, and no improvement since he's been in hospital
Yep.. We've brought him home for 1 last night of cuddles etc
He's got kidney disease.
I'm so sorry sledge. Poor little man
he just weed on me but i don't care
Had to say goodbye a little abruptly this morning to my dearest kitty. Got her for my birthday in grade 6 and was the best cat you could ask for. Nearly 17 years old tho, and she recently got over a scare with a UTI and being severely dehydrated, spending the night in the vet. 3 or so weeks later, suddenly losing the ability to use her back legs. Vet thinks its probably from a degenerative spinal problem or cancer related and advised that her quality of life would be terrible, so we made the very sad call.
Sorry for your loss Zero
It gets harder as you get older...
Cheers mate, sorry to read about your own loss
Yeah my last loss (few years back) was terribly hard, and now my new ones are only 2-3yo, already I'm closer to these ones, and I've already had thoughts about how messed up I'll be in 10-15 years when their time is up (touch wood that they have full terms).
But hey it's the price we gladly sign up for when we hook ourselves up to these awesome creatures with unfortunately lesser life spans than ours.
Doesn't make it any easier mind you!!
Very sorry to hear, Zero. Our young boy (briefly) lost the use of his back legs last year, and it was terrifying. We were lucky: it was able to be diagnosed and treated, but I was beginning to think of whether we'd have to make the call.
17 is a very respectable age: he must have had a good life..
Sorry for your loss Sledge and Zero, our kitty is 12 years old and still healthy but it makes you think, we sure don't want to lose him anytime soon.
Yeah Max was healthy most his life, and there was no indication of any issue until 2 weeks ago.. downhill fast from there.
I wish animals COULD talk and tell you they're not feeling the best..
Just over a month ago, I whispered goodbye to Syd. She had been unusually quiet for a couple of weeks but by the time she was diagnosed with Lympoma, I had less than a week with her before I had to say goodbye.
The instigator of most of the mischief in my home, Sydney was a typical manx and she would delight in playing with the dogs tails when they were wagging them and would often sit behind doors and swipe at you as you went past..... I miss her soo much
