Goddamn it, TimeBeing, I really hate it when a posting here brings me close to tears. Well said, goddamn it.

As I read this my cat Murphy was driving me fucking nuts--one minute he wants outside, the next back inside again; walking around and meowing like a goof; attacking the lace tablecloth; biting Smokey in the back of the neck while shrieking like all the lost souls in hell.

After reading this post I picked up Murphy and petted him and kissed him on his orange head, because life's too short to shout at a cat.

All of our cats have been, in one way or another, rescue animals. Alain, you and your daughter gave Kitty a home and love. In the end you did what you had to do.

Ow. I guess we all saw it coming but...

I've been there, and trust me, I'm sharing the pain right now. The small things, such as our pets, are important things that make live worth living. Most of all, I really feel for your daughter right now, and at the risk of not sounding like like hater TB, please, whatever you do, please pass along the sympathies of all of us here.

Good lord - here I am choking up over a cat I've never met. What a beauty. Old softie I guess.

Tough deal to love a pet to the extent we'd end their suffering when the time comes; ultimately, we'll be vested in the capacity to do the same for each other.

Never easy, man; sorry to hear. I'll keep a good thought for yous.

I've lost three in the last few years. The first, Freckles, was the hardest. The other two were easier, but I still bawled like a baby.

Weep not for me though I am gone into that gentle night, Grieve if you will, but not for long on my soul's sweet flight. I am at peace my soul's at rest, there is no need for tears. For with your love I was so blessed for all those many years. There is no pain, I suffer not, the fear is now all gone. Put your pain out of your thoughts for in your memory I live on. You were never my master, I was your friend. I loved you well and was loved. Deep love endures to the end and far past the end. If this is my end, I am not lonely, I am not afraid. I am still yours.

Thanks everyone. It has been a difficult road for all of us. The problems kitty had began in late 2012 when the partner of my former vet of 14 years did dental work on Kitty. Because Kris just filed suit to recover the money spent for Kitty to recover from that dental work, I cannot comment on what went wrong. Needless to say Kitty had to have emergency treatment at a major teaching hospital for several months. Our current vet who came over Monday morning to help Kitty one last time sent a card and flowers yesterday. The photo with paw print was made by me as a gift to Kristen without her knowledge only hours before Kitty passed on. Last photo was Kitty last year at OSU during one of our visits to her.
