The unexpected

Cuddles, the black kitty

Last Saturday was the last day I had to spend with Cuddles. He was the 2nd youngest in the house, being only 12. Over the past 2 weeks he had gotten gradually sicker, only to find that he had a tumor in his abdomen. He was definitely the alpha male among our clan of cats, which is only a clan of 4 now. But he was also the favorite of each of the cats, each one always wanted to be with him. It was definitely one of the worse days of my life. The other cats look for him, and they themselves are upset in their own way, looking and waithing for him to come back. He can never be replaced.

Our other 3 cats spent days wondering why Abby had not come back from the vet so I understand how that one is. I am sorry for the loss of your baby. Just like our 2 legged family members they are not replaceable.

Hi Tricia. I am so sorry for your and your cats loss. I know how you feel because we lost our beloved Doc in January. He was sick and taking medication and was feeling better but one night he starting bleeding fromn his left ear. We thought that he scratched himself. We took him to the emergency vet and later they called and told us it was a tumor and he was bleeding from the nose. We only had him 2 years, he was an older cat we adopted from the local humane society, but it was a great 2 years. He went way too soon and we miss him terribly. Our other 2 cats look for him too. Doc and Cuddles will always be missed and remembered. You just have to know they are in a better place and feeling better. Have you ever read "Animals and the Afterlife"? The bok really helped me. Again I am so very sorry for your loss.
