Boy cat died last Wednesday after prolonged seizures in the middle of the night,from which he didn't recover and had to be pts. Girl cat went in to vet for what we thought would be dental work under anaesthetic on Monday. Turns out she had a tumour of her tongue and as she was barely managing to eat we had to make the decision to have her pts too.I don't know what to do, don't want to be in the house its too quiet, but every time I come back in I expect to be greeted by two furry bundles and they're not there. Don't even know why I'm posting.

Sorry for the loss of your cats.

They really are a part of the family x

So, so, sorry for your loss sad

That's heartbreaking to lose both so quickly.

So sorry, how awful to loose them so close together xx

Oh no, that's awful sad. There are no words of comfort, it's just a shitty situation.

That's awful for you, brainwashed. I'm so sorry.

KatyMac Thu 10-Jul-14 18:02:26

I just can't imagine how you are feeling. What a terrible shock

I am so sorry for your loss brainwashed, losing a much loved pet is hard enough but losing two in a short period of time must be hideous.

It's the loss of that welcome home they give and the great companionship.

I think all you can do is remember how much love they had and that both had treatment as they needed it. They were not left to suffer as many cats are. You were a fab owner to them in life and there for both of them at the end if life too. Lucky lucky cats to have had you.

Give yourself time to adjust and grieve. When you are ready know that somewhere a cat is waiting for the chance of a loving forever home. Perhaps a cat in a rescue or a kitten.

In the meantime be gentle with yourself and grieve. xxx

Post away brainwashed if it helps.
Most of us have had this awful experience.

I'm so so sorry for your misfortune, especially the suddenness of it, and hope you find some solace for the shock and upset here.

I know I cried and cried when my little baby cat died unexpectedly.

Hugs to you.

Oh wow I'm so sorry. That's awful news. Hugs and love

Oh very sad.

Gingermum Thu 10-Jul-14 18:46:05

I'm so sorry brainwashed. As Jake says, be gentle with yourself and give yourself time to grieve. sad

SecretNutellaFix Thu 10-Jul-14 19:26:17

I would say give yourself a few weeks and then maybe see if you want to fill the cat shaped hole in your life?

There are lots of cats who would love to be part of your family if you feel up to it?

aJumpedUpPantryBoy Thu 10-Jul-14 20:08:55

I'm so sorry, you must be devastated.

Sorry to hear of your losses it must be such a shock to lose both your cats so clise together.

LiberalLibertines Thu 10-Jul-14 20:15:34

Awww brainwashed I'm so sorry flowers

mynameisred Thu 10-Jul-14 20:15:45

thanks
How awful to lose them both so suddenly. Be kind to yourself and remember all the good times you had with them.

CocktailQueen Thu 10-Jul-14 20:18:05

I'm so sorry. Poor cats, and poor you. Very hard losing them so close together. I so sympathise. Xx

CatKisser Thu 10-Jul-14 20:24:50

That is just so, so unfair. And it really changes the dynamic of your household when two beloved kitties just aren't there any more.
In due time I hope you feel you can provide a home for more cats, but for now I am just so sorry about your babies x

bouncingbelle Thu 10-Jul-14 20:28:08

I'm so so sorry to hear you've lost both your cats so close together. I lost my cat this week and its heartbreaking.

It helped me to talk about my cat and how special he was - would you like to tell us about your two?

brainwashed Thu 10-Jul-14 20:40:53

They were from the same litter, we rehomed them when they were 9, nearly 5 years ago,so I feel as if they should have had several more years yet. Frank was a big softy,he didn't do lap sitting but would honour you by sitting next to you and purring really loudly. He loved water and would often get in the bath to play. He was diabetic but totally unphased by twice daily injections! Nancy was a scaredy cat...any sudden noise and she was off,but she loved lots of cuddles. She would nag at you any time you were in the kitchen,she needed food! She loved cheese and managed to have some the night before she died even though she was finding it so hard to eat anything.

CatKisser Thu 10-Jul-14 20:51:08

Cats who love water are HILARIOUS - it's so unnatural looking isnt it? I've never seen one like Frank though who'd get right into the bath!!!
One of mine is a Nancy - cheese lover! I think it must be a luxury for them.
Have to say, it's so nice that they spent so many years together from being litter mates. x

Oh I'm so very sorry sad It's bad enough to lose one but two at once must be very painful. My heat goes out to you
