Over come with grief today

I had to put down two BELOVED cats last fall. 10 weeks apart.
My Beloved Blues first, then my sweetheart Rhythm 10 weeks later.

Just 2 weeks ago my Harmony had major surgery for stomatitis (full dental extraction)

And right now I just feel sad sad sad sad sad....

I miss my Blues. I miss my Rhythm (Tuxie)....soooo sooo very much

I know you all will understand...

I just miss every bit of them.

Thanks for listening...

I'm sorry you lost two of your cats so close together. It is devastating I know. I do hope Harmony is making a good recovery. I truly believe that no love is ever lost, and that some day you will see them again. For their sake, try to be happy for Harmony who may be picking up on your sadness.

I'm so sorry you are SO sad! Sometimes the sadness and missing them just won't quit. I hope Harmony makes a full recovery and enjoys life to the fullest.

Last night I had two glasses of wine and that always makes me melancholy. I started talking about Sam, our beautiful silver Persian that we adopted at 12 years old. We had to let him go last January (2012) after only 4.5 years with him, and the tears just started flowing. Bittersweet. Better to have loved and lost, than never to have known them at all........

I am so sorry for your loss. It is never easy losing our beloved kitties, even when putting them down is the right decision. It sounds like you have some wonderful memories. I hope they remain strong and that the hurt subsides.

Thanks to all of you. I knew you would understand.

Yes Marcia. I am so glad that we shared our lives together. I have no regrets for the love shared. The petpets and the scritches behind the ears!! Not a one.

I was just so unprepared to lose 2 in such a short time, and then a 3rd with a serious and painful dental disease

We have two that are very elderly at about 16+ or so (no one really knows). We know we will lose them fairly soon because we can see them slowing down and just plain aging but we also know they probably won't last long without each other. They are the only two that are fairly close. I fully expect to cry like a baby when they finally pass and my husband has scheduled a week of vacation.

When I lost my first cat Rookie, I realized I knew what true heartbreak was. It's very, very painful, and it's only the passage of time that lets you get back to your 'old self.' I just told myself -- they happen to have a shorter lifespan than we do, so by adopting them we're signing up for taking the loss. We're taking one on the chin so they don't have to. I think it's a noble thing.

I get your pain. Your pain is mine My beautiful Jinx left me a week ago...We bought flowers for her burial place. The pain is there and will always be there. I don't know...I used to think "Wow, cats live 15+ years, I'm so fortunate!" and she died at 8 and 1/2, it was so unexpected...I guess god or whoever taught me a lesson: "Don't try to predict the future". Perhaps I'm going to be next in a few months, nobody knows...
All I know is that as long as I live, whether it's a few months or years, the pain of losing her will always be with me. I still hear her paws on the floor, but she's not there...

We are all here among friends. We all (most of us) have loved and lost. Some of us many times and it is never easy, but the wonderful part is we have saved a life and loved a furry friend unconditionally.
