We just said goodbye to our kitty :'(

He was 15, and withering away. It was his time to go, he was no longer comfortable or peaceful. He wouldnt eat, nor could he make it to the yard to relieve himself anymore. It was his time, but it doesnt make the decision any easier. And DD doesnt understand why he wont be coming back, I told her he is going to heaven. She seems ok with that.
I am very sad about it.

  • I'm sorry. I know how hard it is. I had to put my cat down when I was pregnant with my youngest. I had to have my mom take him in for it because I couldn't do it.

    Just try to remember that at least he's no longer suffering. It's not much consolation, but it's a little.

  • We've gone through this several times, so I can empathize. Pets become part of the family and giving them up is always painful.
