Default OT: Sad day



I lost a good friend a few days ago, someone had not seen for a over eight months. He was a good pal, and the most human cat I had ever known. He left with family at the beginning of the year, and only today was I told that he had died.

For those of you who have pets, you know what I mean when I say it hurts.



I had missed him since they left, and to find out he was no longer alive just ruined my day. I am so very sad.

Tell me about it...

Been there, done that.

Had a Siamese cat a long time ago. If you know cats, then you know Siamese cats are usually one-person cats. Well, I belonged to him. No matter what I was doing, he had to be on me...supper, TV, bed, computer. Washed me all the time.

He got old and sick. I'll never forget giving up on getting him well and let him out in the yard to eat some grass, put him in the car and took him to the vet to be killed (for some reason, I prefer to call it what it is). They saw me at the front door, unable to go in and tears in my eyes. The doctor motioned for me to go around to the back. I'll never forget his eyes shutting slowly as he looked at me.

Took me about 5 years before I ever got another cat.

So, yes, some people DO know what you mean. You have my sympathy.

My sympathies to you. I think many of us can relate to the loss of a beloved pet.

my deepest sympathies Atrocities. I have a cat myself, she is already 9 years old and she've been with me since i remember myself - mid 7. I dont want to think of the future. My deepest sympathies. Luckily i haven't felt the loss myself.

Thanks guys. I have lost pets before, but loosing this Cat was tough. He grew up with my cat, and together they were the dynamic deuo.

Alvan used to sneak into my nephews room and lick their faces at night. I would be on the PC and one of them would open my door and deposite him in my room with a tired and barely ledgable comment "You watch Alvan!" This from a child that would not leave the poor cat alone at all during the day. LOL, that cat was one cool little fella. He would climb up on my monitor and watch me play Tribes for hours.

My cat, Giligan is cool, but likes to be left alone. Alvan (Gizzmo) was very playful and loving. Especially at night after the boys went to bed. Pay back time. At least I have pictures of him. That makes it easier.

For those of you who have lost a pet, I share your pain.

Sorry to here your loss Atrocities, i know exactly what you mean. I'm almost 17 and i had a cat called Sammy for 12 years of my life. It was around Last year it died in the night of old age. I'm no stranger to losing pets but this was like losing a life companion. People say dogs are mans best friend but i personally think cats should be. It's so easy to get attached to a cat and if you treat them right they'll treat you with love, affection and the occasional crap behind the pc on the power lines I'd pick a cat over any pet, any day.

On good news my family purchased 2 kittens a week or two ago (which to my distaste got called sooty and sweep, thats what having sisters will do to naming pets) And i admit that old feeling of attachments coming back to one of them, the others just....evil!

I guess the best way to deal with the loss of a pet is do something that you'll remember on the day. Atrocities, you could start a feline based shipset with the race leader named Alvan and use the piucture below as race portrait.

All i can say is i'm sorry to hear this. Cats are just the best pets on earth and i share your pain Atrocities, just remember to keep Giligan happy
