Condolences on the loss of your other feline friend.

It is not easy to lose pets as they often become a 'friend' and often a 'member of the family'. Have lost several since I was a child (the last was ten years ago) and while the level of the feeling of loss may very depending on the connection with that pet, it is never easy.

As for the idea of a "rescue", one of our two dogs is a small, three legged, mixed breed. My wife calls him a "bright penny" which is a very accurate description and puts smiles on our faces daily.

I don’t know if I posted this before, but a buddy of mine lost his family cat earlier this year. He was more upset than he expected to be. He told me he felt guilty, thinking about replacing it with another one.

I told him, you aren’t replacing it, you are giving another one a chance to have a loving home. That made him feel much better.

My buddy, Saturn, turned 16 last week. He is super healthy and active, but I know our years together are shorter than they used to be. I get emotional just thinking about it, or writing this. I treasure every moment I get with him.





I’m kinda like Hans Solo, always stroking my own Wookie. I’m the root to all that’s evil, but you can call me Cookie.

Shocked that I was the last to post on here. I took my buddy, Saturn, to the vet today, to find out he has brain cancer. He is still healthy at 17 1/2. But brain cancer....

I am miserable today....



Don’t take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

I put down a cat earlier this year with some large external cancer looking growth. Mammary cancer is apparently a common thing for females that don't get spay.

My old buddy has been really hard to live with most this year. I have 4 litter boxes trying to get him to use them. Diabetic in remission but he's eating like a horse like thyroid issues but vet tests keep coming up normal. We've had 15 years together but this always hungry clawing at me for food every 3-4 hours and the not using litter box is getting hard to deal with.

Aw man; that sucks. One of the family. It's the only downside to having most pets. I once thought about getting a parrot (they can live 80 years) but then thought about what if something happened to me.

All we can do sometimes is give them the best quality of life possible then when it's time; not let them suffer.

Pretty cat. Looked like a sweetheart!
Yea man. All I had to do was sit down on my recliner with a beer and boom - there she was ready to watch whatever I was watching. Her sister lives on as well as our rescue.

What a beautiful cat, so sorry.... I still carry my cat necless in my computer bag with me all over the world , every time I travel I see his necless.... and then i smile
That's very sweet. What a great idea. The vet gave me back her urn with a clay cast paw print. Didn't even expect that.

I don't understand, cremation for pets? Why not just burry your loving animal ?

Except if you live in a apartment or flat in a city of course ?
