Re: Preparing for the worst

Thank you for all the messages of support. I miss him but I will okay. I am more concerned for Linda and Avia. Linda misses her "baby Bob" and was mopey after looking at some pictures tonight. Avia is going around the townhouse in the evenings meowing (deep throaty calls) wondering where is Bob. Hop...

Thank you for being a friend

Bob left us this afternoon at 4.30 pm. I am sad and I miss him but I know it will pass, I am sure Alexandra our 13 month old daughter will make it easier too. I actually just reached under my desk expecting to find him per usual. The day was hard but the actual event was not as bad, one brief cry at...

Home stretch

We decided last night that this will be Bob's last week and will have him put to sleep on Saturday afternoon. Because he gets stressed in the car and at the vet's office we will have it done at home.

Thank you to everyone for their support and thoughts, and thank you to Crewella for a nice story and the insight. As it is Bob has doing well all things considered.

Re: Does it get any easier?

I feel for your loss because we are approaching the same situation with our friend Bob. On learning the bad news on Sunday night was bad, especially for Linda, but it has gotten better through the week. We still have Bob for now but he is not the same Bob he once was. Avia, the other cat, even went ...

Preparing for the worst

It with a heavy heart that I have to say Bob, one of the furry members of our family, will likely stop his journey through time with us in a month, maybe two, and this is due to a tumor which is most likely feline oral squamous cell carcinoma. There could be a misdiagnosis but unfortunately I doubt ...
