Had to say goodbye to the old man yesterday. It was really hard. He'd been with me pretty much my entire adult life. He almost made it to 18. I had to take him to the vet, but it wasn't as bad as I feared. He was in enough pain that he wasn't freaked out. I stayed with him until the end. The house is going to be so empty now. ????? just me and my Ni ni kitty.

So sorry. My old boy is 17 and I dread that day. You gave him a good long life full of love, though, and you have memories to cherish. Be strong.

It is really tough losing your buddy. I am so sorry for your loss. I bet you gave him a heck of a good life.

I feel your pain. What a gorgeous boy.
It's wonderful you had his company for that long. It's never easy saying goodbye.
Hugs x

I'm very sorry for the loss of your beautiful boy. ♥

Know exactly what you're going through. Wish our pets lived as long as we do. Take care.

Sorry to read that. At least your house is not totally empty.

I similarly had to have my beloved PussPuss, a companion for 22.25 years put down a few weeks ago. Her cadaver's burial ground is now marked by a young peach tree in my daughter's yard.

I'm sorry for your loss.

Huge hugs and sympathy. The only downside to having a pet.

What a handsome boy. I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm glad he had you with him as he passed. That's always been my consolation when I've had to make that difficult decision to let one of my babies go. That they were not alone, and they knew they were loved.

I am sorry for your loss.

It is never easy, no matter how old or many times it happens, just know that he is out of pain.

glennlab Level 9 Mar 23, 2019

Hugs. Sorry for your loss.

Over the last 30 years, I've had to put several down. It's always very difficult as they're full-fledged members of the family. Sometimes I let them out in the morning and the never come back. Waiting and waiting and not knowing what happened is very tough too.

It is so hard to say that final goodbye to our fur kids. I am sure you did the right thing for both of you. He is no longer in pain. Remember the good times with him, and pay extra attention to Ni ni Kitty, you both will be missing your buddy.
