We lost one of our two pet kitties today. She had suffered some recently, went to the vet's yesterday for some shots and a look-see, but died this morning. Sad to lose her, but she is in a better place now.

I'm so sorry to hear that. My elderly kitty has been declining for some time, and it's hard to watch them fail, I'm sure you must miss her.

Hugs.

Thanks.

Hard part was my wife petting her and having her purr at 6:00 a.m., and then me getting up and finding the kitty gone at 6:45!

It sounds like she wasn't in any pain towards the end. Take comfort in that. When my cat Bart died he was in kidney failure and we put him down right before Christmas because we could tell he was suffering too much to wait for nature to take its course.

The cat had had very bad gums for a long time, and she seemed to be bleeding some from her mouth on Saturday. The vet had had to remove a tumor from her breast a couple of months earlier, however, so she suspected the blood may have been coming from the cat's lungs due to cancer spreading there.

Thanks again for everyone's condolences.

... we lost two of our cats last summer to coyotes.

Do they allow coyote hunting in your area?

Without controls coyotes (and all other wild things) expand their populations until disease or starvation brings things back into line.

“... we lost two of our cats last summer to coyotes.”

We aren’t supposed to discharge a firearm within the subdivision, no. That rule, however, is generally ignored by about 85% or 80% of the residents. My neighbor, across the street, is a reserve deputy in the parish’s sheriff department. He has the ideal property as it slopes down in the back to a little creek that separates it from a horse farm. I would love to set up a electronic call about halfway between his back door and the creek, which is about 100 yards away. I figures that I could set on his patio with a starlight scope and the 5.56 SIG or one of my 22-250s and reduce the coyote population reel good, me.
;-)

C.J.V. - his neighbor to the south shot 3 of them one night with a pistol while his wife’s dog was doing his business, him

Vermonter,
That is so sad, it is so hard to lose our little furry friends. Mine are like my kids. My sympathy goes out to you and your family.

I'm so sorry. But remember, the only way to avoid loss is never to love -- that would, indeed, be a sad and sorry life.

I have a little vision, perhaps silly. I'm not sure if I unconditionally believe it or not. I adopted my first cat 42 years ago so many cats have given me great sorrow when they left me, all too soon no matter how many years they stayed. I envision all those many cats sitting on a cloud, with my mother, patiently waiting for me. When I arrive, many years from now (I hope), I will spend several centuries hugging each in turn.

Your little cat will, I'm sure, patiently wait for you.

There is no way to talk about cats and come off sounding sane.

We both shed a tear when we read your reply, Dorothy... We've lost several over the years, too. I buried our pet out near the hedge on our lawn. It was a labor of love, considering the enormous amounts of shale, rocks and roots I had to dig through before placing her down in there, in a box we lovingly placed her in.

I miss my Hobbes. He was an enormous (tall and wide) orange male tomcat (why do the orange males get so dang big?) He was around 18 lbs, but healthy, till one day he just stopped eating. Kidneys. We have no clue why. Only 7 years old. Had to put him down.

Miss the big old lump.

My condolences.

Sorry, SG. No matter their age, it always hurts. We've lost many in our 50 years of marriage!

Even if it was a lot of work burying our Lily yesterday, in a box, wrapped in her special old towel she always slept on...!
