My beloved cat died

If you an animal lover, maybe you relate. You, too, may have had a dog or a cat or another pet as your first a loving creature totally dependent on your care.

My first baby was a 7 pound calico cat named Jesabel, a runt abandoned in an apartment building in canada goose Ogden, Utah, where I worked my first full time job as a newspaper reporter. I was only there for four months before I received an offer in another state that allowed me to jump a rung on the career ladder. But no matter, Canada Goose Outlet I had gotten all that I needed from Utah: A feisty, sweet kitten who played with me, slept with me and, most important, loved uk canada goose me unconditionally for almost 19 years nearly half of my life.

Earlier this week, I made the sickening decision to end the life of my disease ravaged cat. To some people, the loss of a pet is a momentary sadness. To many people, it too bad but certainly something that should be overcome quickly. To me, losing my cat is utter devastation, a deeply shattering experience that won go away any time soon. (I still get sad when I think about the loss of my childhood dog).

Yes, Jesabel was my first but I realize she is not a person and losing her does not compare to the grief of losing a husband or a wife, a sibling, a friend, a parent or, God forbid, a child. I know this because I am (mostly) rationale and I know grief. My dad died of skin cancer when he was 58. canada goose factory sale I had a miscarriage. A good friend committed suicide. I have lost all of my grandparents as well cheap Canada Goose as aunts and uncles and cousins and classmates and coworkers, including a beloved boss who was raped and then murdered.

I bring this all up not to be depressing but because whenever I have written about pet loss, I always get people who call me crazy or selfish and insensitive for harping about an Canada Goose sale animal when far worse tragedies occur every minute of every day to people.

I Canada Goose Jackets get it. But pets are family. Jesabel was pre Tom (my husband whom I almost didn date because he wasn an animal person). Jesabel moved with me across the country, to eight homes in four states. She knew I was pregnant before I did. She was snuggly and loyal like a dog. Most important, Jesabel was sweet to my active, loud kids who consumed my attention at her expense and who, as toddlers, yanked her tail and chased her while screeching.

Jesabel was wonderful in so many ways, but this is not a eulogy. Rather canadian goose jacket it is a simple sound off about how lost, lonely and sad I feel without my first And I wondering if others feel as tight of a bond with their pets or if my deep, deep pet love is yet another byproduct of my overly sensitive and sentimental personality?

Dear Kristina, you are totally normal, alot of people experience genuine love for the first time from a beloved pet (particularly when one childhood was not easy). I have volunteered at animal shelters for 20 years, cared for many canada goose store animals until they passed, and their deaths were as sad as losing human friends. But you did the wight thing becuase their elderly bodies can be so painful and you gave her compassionate relief that I bet she loved you even more for. Jesebel was an absolute beauty and I bet she knew it! She likely is a guardian angel Canada Goose Parka for you and your kids. Love is love and countless reports of near death experiences confirm that the animals go to

God/heaven asofo people. It is so hard to make the decision to euthanize, I know personally, but I am confident that you made the decision out of love and mercy.

We lost our 17 year old Persian Kici on March 24, 2013. Our vet suggest that putting her to sleep maybe the best option, but we couldn do it. She was with us for 15 years and she like to be closed to us but she never like to sit on our laps, never wanted to sleep in our bed, she liked her space. Well all of that changed about four months before she died and now I feel so guilty because we were just enjoying that and I thing she was trying to tell as that something is wrong. When we realized that she is sick the vet suggest that we should consider cheap canada goose putting her to sleep, we didn because she just wanted to be with us every second. I spend so much time reading about sick kitty’s and so many times people were making comments that they cats were hiding in the dark spaces, our baby did not. We couldn leave her for a minute, she had difficulty walking at the end but if we left her she tried to follow us. It was like she had a spring attached and when I try to put her on the couch next to me she will climbed back to canada goose clearance sale my lap. She died in my boyfriends arms and we are so devastated and empty and lost. She left such a big hole in our life and we can figure out how to overcome that. I am sorry for the misspelling and the grammar, English is my second language.

i just want to share my testimony here. i was married for 15 years to my husband and all of a sudden, another woman came into the life of my husband.

I lost my gorgeous George on August 31 2011. He was 17 years old and was killed by a car. I adopted George when he was 6 from the Cats Protection. He had obviously been abused as he was very nervous but after Canada Goose Coats On Sale a while he learnt that he could trust me which was magical and we shared 11 wonderful and happy years together.

I cried for days and weeks after losing George and still get really upset as he was the biggest part of my life for so long. I know some people didn truly understand my sense of loss but I can explain the sense of loss I felt. My heart was truly broken.

I used to cuddle George and nuzzle his fur and he be purring although probably thinking me down mum I a boy and this isn very macho!! However, he loved being close to me and always sat on my lap at every opportunity. He even used to come and say goodnight by jumping on the bed and lying next to me for 10 minutes purring like mad and then jump off when he thought I was asleep.

After he was killed I cried myself to sleep most nights as I missed him so much. My partner was fantastic as he missed him too and tried to console me as best he could.

About 2 months after he gone I woke up after having the most vivid dream about George. He come to see me and in the dream I picked him up and cuddled him and nuzzled him like I used to and told him that I missed him so buy canada goose jacket much. The dream was so life like I could even smell him and I know I cuddled him for as long and hard as I could.

I like to think that George came back to say goodbye cheap canada goose uk to me as I have never had another dream like that since. I still miss him and writing this I have tears streaming down my face.

Hi, so sorry for your loss! I know exactly what you are talking about. I recently got married and had to stay with my husband in NYC so I had to find a boarding place for my two 3 year old sons( brothers) in Montreal. They meant the world to me, they Canada Goose online were my first pets ever I got them when they were only 6 weeks old. When I was away in NYC the guy that was watching them would send me videos every week so I would be comforted that they canada goose uk black friday are ok. When I returned back to Montreal I went to pick them up and was told that day on the phone Valentino my blue Russian had lost some weight due to some stress when I got there he was dying! They didn even uk canada goose outlet bother to call me to tell me he was sick and losing weight. I did everything to save him, brought him to the vet but it was too late canada goose black friday sale he died 24 hours after I went to pick him up. It as if he waited for me before passing. It been three weeks now and I cry evey single day. Every time I see Matteo his brother I wonder where did my Valentino go? I blame myself for losing him sometimes. When I read post like yours often people lose their beloved cat at age 15 and up and I lost mine at 3!!!! I am devatated because he was sooo special to me. : comment >

My cat boubi 17 years of age passed away at the start of this year due to lung cancer. Being in my life for so long he became a brother to me I did not see him as a cat I actually considered him a human. Being so loyal and smart his 24/7 purring use to sound the house he would also follow you where you went and trusted us with his life. As he became weak and sick it was impossible to see him

In that state he was so brave he would hide his pain from us my thoughts to keep us from being depressed. Barely being able to walk he would still come to us. The night before he was put down I gave him a kiss on the forehead and spent 3 hours with him.

As the morning came and taking him to the vet he stood on all 4 legs and kept his head proud in the air. I could tell he didn want to leave us. He was put to rest canada goose coats and seeing his lifeless body was like a dagger piercing my heart even thought I know he is at home I still carry the burden of regret guilt and pain of his passing. The only thing that comforts me is the fact I will see him again on the other side

I am so touched that this chain has been going on for so long. I loss my cat Titus 2 Saturdays ago and I still crying. I can get him out of my head. I keep looking for him in the house, and expecting him to be at the door when I come home. I have no one to share my emotions with about how canada goose clearance deeply hurt I am about his lost, without being judged. I literally googled lost my baby, my cat died because that how I honestly feel. I know that it not the same type of loss as losing a child, but when he died, I cried a cry that was so different than any cry I ever had. I don have any children, and I grew up with cats. This was my own cat that I had with my significant other and our first house, and he was only three. He died suddenly of Kidney failure, and although I know it not my fault, I can help but think. if I only made it to the vet sooner, or I took him to the Vet ER This canada goose uk shop was cleansing. Thanks everyone for posting. Xs and Os for all of you and your lost loved ones.

Reading all these posts have made me realise that I not overreacting at all. I canada goose coats on sale lost my best friend, my baby, and the best companion I ever had 2 days ago. My baby Tun Tun was knocked by a car 2 days ago, and I am Canada Goose Online shattered. I didnt even get to say goodbye to the one I loved so much. I know that there was nothing I could do. He loved being outside and I couldnt force him to remain indoors. I spoilt him to bits, but he loved me unconditionally in return. I have cried non stop since, and I know that it will take alot of time for this emptiness to subside if ever. I wish I could cuddle him just one more time, and tell him that I love him. I hope that wherever he is, he can see my tears, and know how much I miss him. Wishing you all strength to overcome your grief.

I lost my beloved Peanut, a beautiful ragdoll, 4 yrs ago. She was only 9 months old. We discovered the last day of her life that she had Feline Leukemia, a devastating disease that she must have had as a kitten. The breeder wouldn even return my phone calls.

A year and a half ago I found this sweet cat that had been declawed and almost starved to death. I took her in even though I already had 4 other cats including two 14 yr old darlings that I had since they were kittens. I called her Emma but I knick named her Moppet as she was so cranky.

She disliked the other cats but hated my 14 yr old Timmy who was himself a mischievious cat. And because of her behaviour I thought she was unadoptable and thought someone would not understand her and might hurt her. So I adopted her. And I took her under my wing. She would only tolerate me petting her for a short time as long as I didn go too far up her back canada goose uk outlet and then she would very matterafactly smack me. It was almost comical. She had buy canada goose jacket cheap no claws but would smack me so hard she made up for that.

Why not play it and cool off at the same time
