I had to get my cat, Kinsey, put to sleep today. She was 15 and half years old. I have known this was coming for two months and have agonized over picking the right time. I think I did today and the vet agreed.

I now have no cats. That in itself is hard as I love cats. My other cat died 2 years ago also at about 15 and half years. Those two were good buddies and now they can be together again.

I feel so bad, yet this cat was not what one would call an ideal pet, she was not a snuggler, she meowed all the time and frequently would urinate in inappropriate places, I have often said if anyone else had her she would have long been dead. But I was always good to her and never thought she meant to be a bad kitty. She was very pretty and good company for the other cat we had.

I've attached a good pic of her but it's about 7 years old.

I'm so sorry. It's always hard to lose our furry friends even if they were little pains sometimes. :hug:

We have a cat that is 16.5 yrs so I know it's coming for us in the probably near future.

My sweet Callie is 18 1/2 years old and I just dread when something happens to her.

:hug: so sorry. It's hard to do, but sometimes it's the best thing. Two kitties had a wonderful life with you, and now you have a chance to give another kitty the next 15 1/2 years.

That's so sad !! When your heart is ready you'll find another pair of friends. I know my local SPCA has soo many kitties they frequently run 2 for 1's where you adopt 2 kitties for the price of one.

Thank you to everyone's nice replies. It's been an emotional day with ups and downs. My daughter tried all day to not feel sad and cry. Then at bed time she finally had a good cry--for which I was glad.

You know, I didn't even knit today. I just didn't feel like it. Did some reading instead.

So sorry for your loss. :hug: I can't imagine how it must feel. I have had my cat for 8 years and although she is a huge pain in the butt sometimes, she is a member of my family and I love her to death. I will be praying for you and your family.
