My tabby girl, Tess, suddenly became unwell on Saturday evening. I found her on our stairs having a fit. We rushed her to the vets but there was nothing they could do as they found she had terminal Liver Cancer.

We very, very sadly had to have her put to sleep and it was the hardest thing I have ever had to do.

Tess came to me ten years ago, at the age of 3 from a rescue. Tess became my shadow. When I was upset, she was there. When I was happy, she was there. She was always there. And now I can’t cope knowing that she isn’t.

I am heartbroken and I am distraught. I wish I could rewind time.
I will forever miss her.

I’m so sorry to hear this. Losing a cat is so tough. Sounds like she landed on her feet when she found you though! Take care.

I'm so sorry for your loss, she looks like a lovely soul, and you were clearly both lucky to have each other. Hopefully knowing you gave her a good life will be some solace to you. flowers

So sorry. It's awful. But in time you will look back and remember her with a smile.

What a beautiful cat Tess was, she looks so pretty in her pink necklace. She will always be in your heart and you must have some wonderful memories together. It's such a difficult decision to make but she was ill and you did right by her. Take care of

Such a lovely girl. I am so sad for you. They leave their pawprints on our hearts.

So sorry lass.

A beautiful girl.

I'm so sorry.

Lovely photos, Tess was beautiful and it sounds like you gave her a great life. You did right by her, right til the end.

We had to have our cat pts a few weeks ago. He had cancer. We miss him everyday but have lovely memories of him as I'm sure you do of your girl. For the first couple of weeks I cried when I thought of him but now I smile.

We will always miss them but we are very lucky to have had such special cats in our lives.

Ahhh I'm so very very sorry 😢

The shittiest bit of having animals in our lives, it never seems enough time we have them for

Cherish the memories of your darling Tess (such a pretty girl) and what a lucky lady she was to be your special cat for years you had together xx

RIP kitten cat Tess xxxx

Thank you everyone for your kind words flowers

Tess was certainly one of a kind and right now I can’t think of her without crying. My heart hurts knowing she is no longer with me.

Tess was a beautiful cat and so very special to you. You gave her unconditional love in a safe forever home. When the time came you made the brave decision to give Tess her dignity. A very unMN hug to you x

She was gorgeous! So sorry for your loss! I lost my boy recently and it broke my heart. It’S amazing how much our fur babies entwine themselves into our lives. The grief of losing them is awful! X

She's so beautiful and I really hope you're ok. They really do become part of you and your life. Just remember that you gave her the best life possible and you'll see her again some day. Very sorry for your loss 🌺

I am so sorry for your loss. What a beauty!

We lost our beloved cat to cancer suddenly a few weeks ago. We were devastated too. It was such a shock and we really miss him.

I can't believe how quick it can take them.

Thoughts go out to you.


user1471439686 Tue 30-Apr-19 22:49:52

Thank you again for the lovely, thoughtful words. It is crazy how much they end up meaning to you.

I’m full of guilt wondering if I could have done more but there was no sign that anything was wrong. It’s just devastating. I’d give anything to have her back with me again.

I’m finding it very difficult tonight, I just miss Tess so much sad I’m filled with guilt and I keep thinking about things I could have done or things I didn’t do.
