What a beautiful boy. I'm so very sorry for your loss. They truly become part of the family. It might not help now but try and think about the good times you and your boy had. flowers

Sorry, just come back to this. Thanks for the support, the last few days have been tough. I was distraught on Wednesday night when I posted.

He had FIV and related conditions so I made the decision to have him put to sleep. I've beaten myself up for not having second and third vets' opinions but I didn't have the money for all the tests and treatment. He was one in a million and a legend in these parts; even people who didn't like cats fell in love with him.

I miss him so much but have a sense of relief he's no longer in pain/discomfort. The whole euthanasia thing was horrendous despite the vet/vet nurses being sympathetic.

I've got two other girl cats who are providing comfort and one of my friends is trying to give me a black and white male stray that she's found hmm grin

FuzzyWizard Sat 27-Aug-16 20:37:27

I'm sorry. What a sweet cat.

What a beautiful boy. So sorry for your loss flowers

bigtapdancingpimp Wed 31-Aug-16 22:07:21

I'm really struggling tonight. It's been a week and I miss him so much; I'd do anything to cuddle him one last time and tell him everything will be all right.

I hate the way he left this world, in pain and fearful. I can't forget the way he looked at me before the vet injected him, he was terrified.

Is this normal, the guilt?
