I lost my "kitty" 2 days ago suddenly and it seems like forever without him. We still don't know exactly what happened, but apparently he had a long term illness that we were not aware of, and that morning he died, his system shut down.
When we got to the emergency room and I saw the look on the Vet's face, I knew he wasn't going to make it. Although I had to make the decision to euthanize him, I still agonize over it. It was awful and I miss him so much.
I know everyone says they had the best cat ever, but my guy was truly unique. I got him almost 11 years ago when he was 5 weeks old, at one of the worst times of my life.
He was the best napper, snuggler, fetcher and loved to be held for hours. He was always at the door waiting for me when I got home.
My kitty's personality was such that whenever I had guests, they always asked if they could sleep with him!!
I know it will take time, but right now it seems so overwhelming. I am going to post a picture of kitty in his favorite spot!!
