Missing black/white male cat GU9

Currently looking after 2 cats for a friend who is moving - had the cats for one week when the older one managed to escape. Owner is not from local area and I'm beside myself with worry.

Cat is 6 years old, mainly black but with some white and has quite thinning hair. Any info appreciated

Re: Cat cremation

I plan to get 3 nice photo frames and put my fave pic of each cat (the 2 that have passed and the one I am going to adopt) to go on my wall. I really wanted something that I could wear - whenever I go out I always wear a ring that was my Mums and it makes me feel closer to her (if that makes sense) ...

Re: Cat cremation

So sorry for your losses - it's so hard. I adore animals and feel like I have a connection with cats (I'm not one of those crazy people that think I'm a cat - seriously - I read about someone the other day who was convinced she was a cat trapped in a womans body?!). When we found a stray cat way bac...

Re: Cat cremation

I feel so low - I was hoping to get a piece of jewellery to put some of Milkos ashes in. All I have of Jasper are a collection of his whiskers that I used to keep when I found them. I have one other foster cat who I am thinking of not adopting now because she might end up dead. I had Jasper for just...

Cat cremation

I am so upset right now - one of my foster cats who I was planning to adopt had to be out to sleep on 5th Feb. This was extremely difficult especially as I lost my own cat 18 months ago. When my cat died I didn't know as the vets he was taken to denied he had been taken there and after launching an ...

Re: One week after I lost the greatest of Gatsby's

I am so sorry for your loss and I completely understand the emotions that you are going through right now. I too wasn't even thinking of getting a cat until my ginger boy came into my life at a difficult time - might sound daft but I sometimes think he was something of a feline angel - honestly don'...

Re: Grieving once more

I am lucky in that I have tonnes of pictures and videos of Milko - downside is I've been sat watching them and am in a state again. It is so nice to know there are others that understand - the pain is so raw and I know that it will ease but right now it is so painful :(

Re: Grieving once more

My partner has said that he can take her to the crem but as I was the one who looked after her (I don't live with my partner) I would feel like I was letting her down.

Still in shock over what has happened and trying to make sure that Honey is ok but I feel like I'm falling apart

Although my Jasper died in August 2014, I didn't get confirmation until 31st October that he had been taken to a local vet and cremated without my knowledge (I only found out for sure wh...

Re: Why does it not get easier

These forums were a huge help to me after I lost my cat last year (he was 4 and died following a cat fight). Like you I felt cheated as he was still so young and I always thought I would have him until he was an old boy. I know it won't feel like it now but it does get easier - the pain never fully ...

How do we cope?

I joined these forums after I lost my beloved cat Jasper last year. It was sudden and a complete shock (made worse by the fact that a problem at the vet he was taken to meant that I had no definite clarification that he had died for over 2 months and never got his ashes). I've been catching up on th...

Oh how I under...

Hi all - I am new here and, despite suspecting that my cat had died after he had gone missing at the end of August, I had a glimmer of hope last week from someone who was convinced that they had my cat living with them.
