Sad Eye

I lost my pretty black cat yesterday. The poem made me cry but also made me feel better about my decision.


It takes a very strong person to manage a feral cat colony. I'm am weakening.

I have lost many cats in my life and that poem makes me cry still. It's been years since I've lost one but it breaks my heart still to think about them.

Re: If It Should Be-Poem

Thank you for sharing the poem. It made me cry but it's something I needed to hear and something that I hope that Lucy feels.

This made me cry. Before May I had never had to put down a pet, but doing so is both the hardest and kindest thing you could ever do.

Oh lord, how lovely but so sad too. We haven't lost a cat thankfully but we had to make the decision to help one of our beloved guinea pigs, Waffle, over the bridge 2 years ago and the decision still haunts me, I feel so guilty, that poem did help.

Unconditional love has a price and that price is that we make the decision that they can not make for themselves, to end their suffering and comfort them as they pass from this life to the next.
I rank Samantha's passing in my arms right up with the loss of my parents, that I had to make the painful decision to end her suffering and her life still brings tears to my eyes.
But it was the only decision that love allowed.

I've read this poem several times over the last few days. It makes me cry every time. Four days ago I had to make the painful decision to have Ziggy put to sleep and even though I question that decision at times, I know in my heart it was the right thing to do.
