Re: Preparing for the worst

What a beautiful post you write and I'm so sorry you are facing this heart wrenching decision. What a beauty Bob is, I like that you say he 'adopted you' and I think this is true for us all with our feline companions. Having gone through a similar situation back in August, where I had to prepare for...

Re: Greebo (aka Fred) ... wherever the spirits of loving cat

Hi, I'm so sorry to read of the loss of your beautiful Greebo. I have read your post several times as I found what you did for him so very moving and beautiful. Greebo could sense that what you were doing for him was because he had finally found the love and security that he so deserved. I think wha...

Re: Why does it not get easier

Hi, I'm sorry to read of the loss of Zac, it sounds like he had a great life with you. I don't think any of us who have suffered the loss of our companions can truly say there is a definitive time frame on when the grieving ever seems to ease. My beautiful ginger boy was PTS seven weeks ago and I st...

It sounds like you are doing a great job with them, reading how they have become more conf...

Re: Our user names - and why?

I also, like SarahT1, misunderstood the instructions for creating a user name. So I used Thierry as this is the name my cat, 'Tush Tush' was registered as, at my vet. When I first took him there as a stray, I thought Tush Tush would get lost in translation somehow. (I live in France....) so I said h...

Re: Good bye Charlie bear

I'm so sorry to read how you have lost your beautiful Charlie, in such awful circumstances, my heart goes out to you. I agree with the most recent post (nannymcfee), something doesn't sound quite right. I hope you are able to find out more, if only to at least give you any small amount of comfort. Y...

Re: 3 weeks on and I'm still so upset

Hi Heather, I'm so sorry to read of your loss of beautiful Angel, what a lovely, selfless thing you did in fostering her (and others cats also). She obviously knew she was safe and loved when she came into your life and that's what gave her the determination and strength of spirit to want to be with...

Re: Is this normal?

Hi Hannah, I have just finished reading your story and I am so sorry you lost your Mum and Jasper. What a truly awful sad time. I think there have been some good suggestions as to how to remember your lovely Jasper. I have Tush Tush as my screensaver and wallpaper on phone and laptop, I have photos ...

Re: I'm about to lose my beautiful boy

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to post such wonderful and comforting words of support at this awful sad chapter of my life. Again, today I have just pottered around in the garden and let my little man know I am here with him. I have sat by his resting place throughout the day and talke...

Re: I'm about to lose my beautiful boy

I'm sad to report that Tush Tush crossed the rainbow bridge this morning, it really was a blessing. He had the most uncomfortable night and I am just relieved that I spent the night lying on the floor with him, doing my best to make him as comfortable as could be in the circumstances. The vet was lo...

I'm about to lose my beautiful boy

I started to write this in the middle of the night but couldn't continue. My little man Tush Tush is ready to leave me and cross the rainbow bridge and I know that in the next few hours I must do what is right by him and call my vet. My big ginger best friend who wandered into my garden almost 10 ye...
