Sad Few Weeks  
We had to have my mum's cat, Willow, put to sleep week before last. She was only 7, and my mum's special kitty. The vet paid for her cremation, telling us they have a special fund and we'd done so much in rescuing her, and all the other cats, that they wanted to do that for her. Early this morning, my baby Tuppence died in his sleep. He was 20, but he was my perpetual kitten. He was tiny, a Siamese Manx. I thought we were going to lose him at Christmas, but he seemed to perk up, so Glenn took him to the vet for a checkup and she said for his age, he was remarkably healthy. Last week, he was like a kitten again - racing around, stealing food, teaching the kittens how best to steal food. About two days ago, he just seemed to start fading away, and around 2am he was gone. He was always there in the morning at the kitchen tap, so I would turn the water on for him to drink. He loved his fresh water. I'm going to miss him. But he's with his best buddy Wellington, who we lost during that tainted Iam's pet food debacle. I'm sure Wellington haunts the house, so maybe he's at peace now that he has his brother with him.

You take such good care of your kitties. There's a special place in heaven for them. And you :)

I'm really sorry, I still cannot be in the room while they put an animal to sleep at work, especially if the owner is still there-if they start crying I will. I don't think non-animal people get it, and even animal people who haven't been through it but it's really hard losing a pet especially ones you've had for a long time. You form special bonds and relationships with your animals because they're always there and unlike most people, even family, they love you unconditionally. Plus they are good at making you laugh. I'm really sorry for your loss, and your moms. I'm glad that at least Tuppence had a good long life and was happy the whole time. I am sure that there is a special place for passed cats where they can do all the things they love-all the canned food and tuna they can eat, lots of birds to watch and kitty toys to play with, sunny spots to lay in

sorry to hear about your cats ,its never easy no matter how long you have them .my best cat moochie was 17 when we had to put him to sleep,it was the best for him but it was still a hard thing to do.no matter how many time you have to go through losting a pet its hard but the payoff is having them in your life as long as you can.
