  • My other cat has died

    I am distraught. We're slowly working our way back through France to get home and my second cat, Dana, had to be taken to the Vet yesterday after I got a call from home.

    She died at 02:22 this AM (UK time) - same problems as her brother, Fox.

    I'm still two days away from home - but suffice it to say, my holiday is already over.

    I never even got to say goodbye to her.

    She was only 8.

    Imagine a ball of iron, the size of the sun. And once a year a tiny sparrow brushes its surface with the tip of its wing. And when that ball of iron, the size of the sun, is worn away to nothing, your punishment will barely have begun.

    My condolences.

    I am a "cat person" and my wife is not... so no cats here on the home front. I grew up with a number of cats around, though.

    How are the kids taking the news? Or have you not shared it with them yet?

      Only one is awake, she's taking it very well. The other is too young to understand I suspect.

      The two cats were mine from before I even met my wife so I am feeling it the hardest. I feel like a failure right now.

        What did she die of?

          Heart failure - she had an enlarged heart, a genetic thing. It seems that pedigree is not always the way to go...

            Sorry to hear about it. Our first dog died when we had to leave her overnight at the vet. Never got to say goodbye to her and that was rough.

            Even though I'm not a cat person, I'll drink one tonite for them.

              Very unfortunate.
              I tell you now that you shouldn't feel that you failed her somehow. It was her time, and you couldn't have done anything to prevent her death. Genetics are genetics and until we can fix it, you shouldn't feel that you have failed her.

              I'm sorry.

                Doc, I'm so sorry to hear that.
                “To discriminate against a thoroughly upright citizen because he belongs to some particular church, or because, like Abraham Lincoln, he has not avowed his allegiance to any church, is an outrage against that liberty of conscience which is one of the foundations of American life.”

                  Some people don't realise how attached we become to our pets, and when the pet passes away it does create a vacuum for a long time!

                        Very sorry to hear that Doc, i'm a pet person myself and know how hard it is when you lose one. They are a part of the family, something not everybody understands.

                            Doc, I've expressed myself elsewhere... but one cannot fail another if one cares & is concerned with their well being & happiness - even to an extent near that which one feels for oneself - even a pet.

                            Dana & Fox both knew your love... You know theirs still, & it shall continue to be so!

                              So sorry about your loss Doc. Know full well your pain on this. Lost a few "little loved ones" myself.
