He was the reason for my nn because he fought foxes! He was 18 and had arthritis, colitis and was in continent.

My poor boy went to the vet who said he couldn't treat him. He'd either have to be pts or wait for it to happen naturally. He was pts with me cuddling him and the nurse cuddling his other side. Poor boy. DD is in floods.

Oh I am sorry, 18 is a grand age though. He was well cared for and loved.

You poor thing though.

Sending hugs and loving purrs from my mob. I am sorry your loved boy was so ill.
Things do get less raw eventually, best wishes to you all.

Sounds like he was quite a character and good he lived to such a ripe old age too. Sorry for your loss.

He would not have known any different and thought he was very much loved and lucky to be getting a double cuddle! You did right by him, although that doesn't make it any easier for you and your family. sending love at an awful time flowers

Thank you so much. He wasn't himself - he'd had to become a lap cat which didn't suit him at all - much more of an independent outdoor beast!

My old boy Thomas did the same, and he was a right bad tom cat all his life! (22 yrs!!!) They know their time is a coming and get all the love they can out of you before they go. He was lucky to have such a loving owner. flowers
