    Howard related...because dead cats, etc.

    What a god damn horrible fucking day.
    I adopted my cat from the SPCA 12 1/2 years ago. He was sick and required surgery. I put a feeding tube in him (I did the surgery myself back when I was practicing) and he lived like that for three months until he finally began to eat on his own.
    I loved him for 12 years. He had no back story...just showed up in the SPCA sick as hell and torn up from living on the streets. Some fuck had declawed him and he was wandering the streets unable to protect himself.
    These past few weeks I kept hoping he wold be okay. I was giving him sub q fluids, steroids, you name it and finally I just realized he was ready to go. I was becoming like one of those former clients I used to bemoan, who just didn't know when to let their friend go.
    I'm now starting to drink, heavily.

    Sorry to hear about your loss. You gave him a great life, and you are a kind person for having done so much. You'll get another chance.

    So sorry for your loss.
    It is the hardest decision in the world to make.
    I have had one Cat in my life, with a former girlfriend.
    She was the greatest little cat.
    I would get up in the morning for my 3ses and while I'm sitting on the throne,
    she would climb up and lay across my back and shoulders.
    My ex-girlfriend, who I hadn't spoken with in 7 years called me to let me know she passed.
    She was 17.
    I sat in my car in the driveway and cried like a baby.

    Several years ago I had to put down my 18 year old cockapoo.
    I had just taken her out to take a dump and she was crying in pain and there was blood in her stool.
    In an instant I knew the time had come.
    The next morning took her to the Vet and held her while she passed.
    I cried like a baby again and was a mess for a couple of months.
    I had her cremated and keep her ashes in a nice cedar box engrave with her name.
    Her collar and tags sit on top of it.

    The truth is that animal lovers know something that most people don't.
    People, as a general rule, are vile and insufferable creatures.
    Animals on the other hand, respond with unconditional loyalty and love.

    It's a lot easier for me to deal with losing a human in my life than one of my animals.
    They are really family and bring out the best in most humans.

    Take solace in the fact that you made his life far better than it would have been.
    Animals know who helped and loved them.
    They also know when it's time to go.
    They just cant tell us with words.

    Peace.

    Yeah, it's something I realized a few years back, doesn't make it any easier but you know you gave them the best you could and it's ot more the most other animals get, unfortunately.

    Sorry to hear about the loss of your cat. Over the years you have given me much advice and comfort when I have had a sick cat. I wish I could give you a hug. :tears2: :tears:
