    Between January 1 and January 28 I lost my father, my 13-year-old cat (my first pet, my baby, my love), and my aunt. I notice the loss of my cat the most. I have another cat and a puppy, and they have their own personalities and their own relationships with me, but I miss my baby. I miss how much she hated every single thing except headbutting me at night for a scratch or a pet. I miss yelling at her to Just Stop Growling For Five Minutes PLEASE. Thank you for sharing this – I am finding that it’s easier to grieve for my own losses by grieving someone else’s loss. A sorrow shared is a sorrow lessened.

    I’m so sorry. It is hard to say goodbye but you did the right thing and obviously took great care of her. We love our little (well, not so little) kitties so much. They truly make our house a home.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. Our pets hold a special place in our hearts, and I’m sure Marilyn appreciated all the love and care you’ve given her. She was a pretty lady and she sure looks like she had a sweet personality.

    I’m so sorry about Marilyn and Elvis. It is so very hard to lose a beloved pet.

    Sending vibes of sympathy to you & Marilyn’s Man, and love to that dear cat spirit who learned to trust and love you both. It couldn’t have been an easy esssy to write, but I hope that you understand that the Tribe of VEB & the Tribe of Tigers appreciate you for your vslient mission.

    Marilyn was a beautiful girl, and I know she will be greatly missed. Run free, sweet Marilyn!

    God bless you and your family, Victoria.

    Thank you for sharing it truly was helpful. Having a mobile vet come to you in your pet’s last hours does seem like a “duh” moment after the fact but everyone’s head is always spinning at that point so the obvious solution isn’t as obvious at the time. Our last pet we had to put to sleep at the busy vet’s office left me feeling guilty to this day every time I think about it so I thank you for letting me see a different way of handling it in the future that will be better for all my loved ones, furry and non-furry ones alike. It makes the most sense to do this in the comfort of their home. I know it’s sad but you can take comfort in knowing you did what was best for her and provider her with a happy life to the end.

    What a beautiful cat she is! Thank you for caring for her as you did. You gave her a good death. All that love, it is all anyone can ask for. Hugs to you.

    Life is hard. She had a great life. I waited too long with my kitty of 20 years, yes 20! He was my best friend and loved me through so much. I had to let him go 10 years ago and still the tears come as I write this.
    I learned so much too… a good death, pain free and peaceful is the best.
    Thank you for sharing.

    I can’t even begin to tell you how sorry I am. I know how much we love our pets and I know the agony of losing them. My cats (3) mean the absolute world to me. I live on a little farm, alone except for them, because my husband died 8 years ago. They are everything to me. I am so sorry and send you love. Yes, thank goodness you have the kittens. It’s hard to be so sad for long with them around.
