My oldest cat had to be euthanized tonight. He was probably about 15 years old (rescue kitty, so who knows for sure). He had a bum eye, a cataract in his "good" eye, diabetes which I gave him insulin injections for twice a day, hyperthyroidism, and renal failure. He actually had a good, loving, happy long life with us, but it was time to let him go. We will miss him so much.





Goodbye Bear. We loved you very much.

Always hard, but in the end, it is better then to let them suffer - a peaceful and loving end for a peaceful and loving life has a nice touch, i believe.

Thanks guy. I'm heartbroken, but I know we did the right thing in the end. It's just something you are never ready for.

Sorry to hear about your loss. Cute kitty in a bearish sort of way. Go bake yourself some cookies to make yourself feel better. I would, but you wouldn't want to eat them.

Again, thanks guys. When I first adopted him, a voice in my head kept saying, "He NEEDS you." I listened. When I brought him home, he followed me EVERYWHERE and laid on my lap, holding onto my leg with his feet. He was so afraid. Eventually he got used to us and the other cats. He was a joy to have and I have no regrets for giving him a good home. Smile
