Will be leaving us today. She has declined tremendously over the past week. She is 16 or 17 years old, we think. My husband found her as a kitten on some tough city streets. I became her cat mummy when I married dh ten years ago. She is tiny but had a will of iron. Goodbye my warrior princess. I hope you will visit me in my dreams....

What a sweetie. I'm sorry for your loss secret, it's so hard. The most difficult part of responsible pet ownership. No matter how much we know we are doing the right thing, it still really hurts. flowers to you and yours.

Sorry OP

Looks like she lived the life of Riley with you and you will see her again at the rainbow bridge

Sleep well little one flowers

Oh bless that cat. I'm so sorry. She was lucky to have such a loving family. I'm sure she will visit you often in your dreams. (The memories never leave.)
I'm a sappy type. But have you heard of the rainbow bridge? It gives me comfort. flowers

I'm so sorry 💔

SecretWitch Fri 23-Dec-16 15:58:45

Thank you all so much. She really is my cat and I can say without false modesty that she loved me most. Please tell me about the rainbow bridge...I am praying that she will find her way to the Mother very quickly and be well and happy.

Rainbow bridge is heaven for much loved family members pets, where they are happy, pain free and free to play and just be.

SecretWitch Fri 23-Dec-16 16:03:41

SVJAA, thank you so much for the explanation. This is exactly my hope for her! My heart hurts so badly. I have been talking to her but she doesn't even seem to know I'm there.

We lost our beautiful boy in May (car) and I honestly wasn't prepared for how much it was going to hurt. I'm so sorry that this is happening, I'm sure she knows you love her very much xx

I love the idea that they aren't "gone". They are just over the bridge. It's total heaven there and we will see them again.

What a sweet old girl. She's had a good life with you and now you are offering her the final kindness you can.

What a sweetheart, thinking of you - she is obviously so very loved.

SecretWitch Fri 23-Dec-16 16:17:41

I love the thought of Rainbow Bridge. You all are so kind to support me through this. The tears keep coming even though I know it is the right and best thing to do. She is just a wee little cat but she is so loved by me.

SVJAA Fri 23-Dec-16 16:19:21

They really are part of the family aren't they? I'm so sorry, feel free to talk here if it helps ❤️

HoHoHammered Fri 23-Dec-16 16:19:55

It's the worst thing to do but

Better to be a week early than a day too late.


Wolfiefan Fri 23-Dec-16 16:20:58

The tears are because you love her. You love her enough to do the right thing for her. Even though you never want to let her go. Even though it's Christmas and you want to keep her for just one.
You love her enough to do what she needs you to do. The last and greatest act of love.

RubbishMantra Fri 23-Dec-16 16:29:55

I'm sorry. What a sad time for you both. You and DH gave her many years of life, she wouldn't have survived alone on the streets a a kitten.

Lovely photograph of her all cosied up in blankets.

SecretWitch Fri 23-Dec-16 16:30:04

Wolfiefan and everyone on this thread.. I am so grateful you all understand. I know it is the right thing to do as she had become so ill. You are right, it is best thing for her but the hardest for me to let her go.

Badcat666 Fri 23-Dec-16 16:32:42


As others have said, you are doing the very last act of love for her. Sending you huge hugs and headbutts from my last 2 furbabies xxxx

SecretWitch Fri 23-Dec-16 16:32:52

She always slept in bed with me. My dh works overnight, so she and I would get into bed at night. She liked to lie on my shoulder and watch me MN. Sometimes, our bigger male cats tried to come aboard and she would chase them off.

Wolfiefan Fri 23-Dec-16 16:33:21

I lost my 19 year old girl last year. I'm actually tearing up a bit remembering her and seeing your old girl.

SecretWitch Fri 23-Dec-16 16:56:25

I am going to miss her terribly. She was such good company. I am going to hold her and gently snuggle her until it is time to leave.
