Yes, it is always hard. You've lost a valuable family member. Getting over it takes time. You would not want her to live with pain, unable to leave the pain behind. Rest assured you did what was best for your cat. My heart goes out to you. Please take care of yourself!

My sweet girl Fudge

Fudge was only sick for a week , as far as we knew any way . She was diagnosed with FIV and with in 10 days we had to put her to sleep . Fudge was the sweetest wee girl i have ever had . Not a nasty bone in her body. I miss her so much and I cry every day. We got her ashes back 2 days ago and i really thought that would help , But it hasn't . I feel guilty for having her put to sleep and so helpless over it all ..

Yes, it is heartbreaking. I still cry over Sam a year later, and get a glass of wine in me and I'm sobbing like a baby over any of them! Those loving, furry little friends just find their way into our hearts, but you can be at peace knowing you loved her so much!

Oh, this is sad. She was blessed to have someone that loved her so much. How long did you have Fudge?

I still get teary-eyed when I talk about Simon (the cat in my Avatar photo) and I'm a guy - not that that really matters I guess. For much of my adult life it was just him and me. I probably confided more secrets, dreams, ambitions, sorrows, and fears to that cat than any person.

RIP Simon, my friend

I know Ninagirl, it's devastating. When I had to take our beloved Reggie to be put to sleep 4 years ago, I felt like my heart was being ripped out. I wanted him to pass at home with us, but he was so sick I didn't have the heart to let him suffer. I know this may sound strange but the way he looked at me it was like he was pleading, he was ready. He had stopped eating and when he stopped even drinking I knew I couldn't let him carry on suffering. I cried for days. I had no idea losing a pet could hurt so bad.

I'm so sorry ninagirl.

We'd love to see pictures of Fudge. I think it's easiest to post photos if you have them on an online image hosting site like Photobucket. On Photobucket, I open the image I want and click "direct link" on the right to copy the url. Then when I post, when I click on the picture icon, I can hit ctrl-c and the url will appear in the box.

I am very sorry to hear about that! Our beautiful girl, Miss Kitty, passed away this past summer. She was sick on and off for a while and my dad was getting ready to move so she just kind of gave up.

It still hurts when I think about her, but it has gotten easier. We had her for 11-12 years and she lived to be about 16.

Please post a picture!
