I'm so sorry. I know exactly how it feels to lose a special cat. The grief is very real. In time you'll be able to feel happy about the good life he shared with you.

Thank you everyone. I know he was so ill just can't believe he has gone sad

This was him a few months ago, he followed me to my children's school I thought it was funny until he hid under a car for an hour then I was fuming...

I need to remember him the way he was, so cheeky and wild, not what the illness done to him x

I'm really sorry. My childhood cat to whom I was as close as could be died of cat flu. She was a tabby too. I still cry when I think of her and she died 32 years ago!

Charlie had a good life by the looks of it. I'm sorry it didn't last longer. Cat flu is a horrid bugger.

Sorry to hear about all your lovely cats too. I didn't realise cat flu could be so bad.

I'm so sorry, Enjoy - remind me how old Charlie was?

And Yes - cat flu can be a real nasty. (I had a cat with the full blown thing once and my own Seniorboy has residual problems from it still.)

Cat flu is a horrible nasty disease that kills in several ways.
Firstly acute disease- kills due to severe illness in first bout.
Secondly the chronic form- the virus can be latent and flares up whenever the cat is stressed gradually it wears the cat down so flares get closer and closer together and the cat takes longer and longer to recover.

He was about 7 years old.

This is the first time he's had cat flu. Such a shame he couldn't recover from it sad

So sorry to hear this. I had to have my beautiful Kedi put to sleep this morning. It is so hard to lose a beloved pet.

I'm so sorry for your loss EnjoyTheSimpleThingsInLife, Charlie is beautiful and always will be.

Lost my own special boy to a sudden heart attack last year so know the pain only too well. Actually, 'pain' is such an inadequate way to describe the loss of a beloved pet really.....

I wanted to post a link to an article that really helped me in the darkest phase of the immediate aftermath.

It may be classed as a bit 'woo' but i do believe that souls & energy can never die completely, only be turned into a different form, which very sadly for us humans remains largely undetectable after the physical form has left us, apart from the love we still feel & always will feel for our now hidden darlings.

Must issue a warning though, just re-read that article & it still has the power to reduce me to a sobbing wreck 20 months on.

Take Care OP, eventually the good memories do 'win' out over the pain.
