A very sad day...

June 25th, 2008 at 01:36 pm

Yesterday was a very, very sad day for me… I had to have my beloved 18-year-old kitty, MC, put to sleep. MC was like a member of the family. He was a dear little companion and friend who has been through many ups and downs with me for almost two decades, and in my life longer than my DH. I will forever miss his gentle spirit and sweet disposition.

MC – February 1, 1990 - June 24, 2008

    What a beautiful face. I am so very sorry for your loss. I just lost my child-hood puppy - she was also 18 years old.

    Thats too bad. My Tbear was put down a week ago, so MC will have a friend over there to show him the ropes. I'm sorry for your family now.

    Oh he is so sweet looking. I still think of my kitty that I had for 20 years. She passed away 9 years ago and I am forever grateful that I was the one to have had her. I am sure it is the same for you with MC.

    I have a new cat but he is not so sweet lol! But he does reach my heart.

    I lost a very sweet kitty about a year ago. I will never forget him. I'm sure you gave MC a wonderful life, and that will help to console you. 18 years! What a long life -- but they're never around long enough, are they?

    I'm very sorry. My nineteen-year-old kitty left for the Happy Hunting Grounds, so I know the pain of losing a good friend and confidant. You are blessed to have had longterm and rewarding companionship for such a long time, and your kitty was blessed to have you for a caregiver/staff person. :-)

    I'm sorry for your loss. My cats are part of the family and I know you'll miss your buddy.

    I'm sorry for your loss. I lost my 19-20 yr old cat a year and a half ago. (Put to sleep also) Its very tough for the first month or so to get used to an empty house and the loss of love and affection when you cross the threshold. Donating the cat food to PAWS helped a bit.

    Sorry for your loss. Frown

    Thank you all for your kind and comforting words. MC definitely left his little six-toed paw prints on my heart and I miss him terribly. It's very hard right now but I know it will get better and you all have helped.

    Very sorry for your loss! :-( Many SA furry friends will be there to greet him!! Good luck in your grieving and may you feel peace soon.
