Oh, I'm so sad for you. Your kitty was sure of your love. I know how hard it is from my own experiences. Thinking of you.

Oh God Spirite what a shock. I'm in tears here for you. I am not good with words, but just know we're thinking of you. Be kind to yourself, it's not your fault. She might have just chosen to spare you from being there.

Oh my goodness, Spirite... I am balling my eyes out reading this. I so wish you could've been there with Margaux as she passed so you didn't feel any guilt. PLEASE, please don't beat yourself up. Margaux passed away peacefully, in the comfort of her home that she so adored... with nothing but happy memories of you. I have no doubt she knew how much she was adored.

Please understand that most cats leave to die if they can... they don't want to be near their people... they usually want to be alone. Margaux probably knew it was time, and chose to let go when you weren't home.

I'm not going to lie, I am sitting here sobbing for you because I know the awful pain and the feelings of guilt. I just hope you know that Margaux knew how much you loved her, and she was able to pass away peacefully in her home... the way she, and any pet would want. Her body may have passed on when you got home, but there's no doubt in my mind that her spirit was present as you pet her and kiss her head.

Margaux is peaceful, playful, happy, healthy, and has her sight on the Rainbow Bridge. A huge virtual hug is coming from me right now... I am sending you so many positive thoughts, Spirite. You are such an incredible cat parent, and Margaux was so lucky to be able to live an incredible life with you, and end it on her own terms in the comfort of her home. Rest in peace, beautiful Margaux...

So sad, I am heartbroken for you. We have all been where you are. Margaux sounds like such a brave, sweet girl.

Oh, Spirite. I'm just in utter shock and my heart goes out to you. I've read your post over and over, and it's starting to sink in...I'm in tears as well.

I definitely know that Margaux was well loved, cared, and cherished. You were and still are an amazing kitty guardian, your words alone through your posts always revealed your patience, kindness, and empathy, so I'm very sure all your feelings were conveyed to Margaux just by your voice, behavior, and mannerism. Please don't ever doubt yourself. I hope you find peace and comfort in this most trying time. I'll be thinking of you.

Cyber hugs to you and Celia.

Oh Spirite,
I am crying my eyes out reading your post. I am so so sorry for your loss. It must have been such a shock to find her. Try not to feel so bad, as 10C2D said hindsight is a wonderful thing. Margaux knew you loved her and gave her such a wonderful life. I am sure she took that feeling with her over the bridge and I am sure she fely you pick her up and snuggle her that last time.
Sending you big hugs from afar

Huge hugs to all of you. I wish that I could thank you all individually, but it's hard to even read your posts right now. I'm just overwhelmed by your kindness and thoughtfulness. I know that, unfortunately, so many of you just know, and I also know how much courage it takes for you to read posts here.

I am very thankful that she seemed to go peacefully and that she was at home, in her favorite bed. That nasty, ratty, 13-year-old bed that she just wouldn't give up. I bought it when I adopted her, and I brought her to the emergency vet in it. She was still in it when I left. My little Margaux, I hadn't yet opened the box with your new bed in it. It's okay. I'll send it back. You probably would have hated it anyway, my stubborn little munchkin.

I so hope that she didn't suffer, and that she wasn't suffering for a long time and that I didn't know. The guilt and the regret are so, so hard. I know some of you feel that too.

I'm terrified to leave Celia. I've been checking on her every 20 minutes. From 7:30 to 10:30, I could barely breathe. I'm a little calmer now. Sending little scratches and ear rubs to my little Margaux bunny.
