View Full Version : So Sad...

05-04-2009, 12:18 PM
Last night one of my cats died. I had her since she was born, she was one of the babies from my cat, Evil. Her name is Bat. I named her that when she was a tiny little thing because her face looked just like a bat's face...lol...I knew I was going to keep her shortly after she was born, she always cuddled up and fell asleep on my lap. She turned 9 last month.

I knew early yesterday she was dying, she could barely move and her eyes were all glazed over. I sat with her and pet her for a while then left her alone. She was curled up on a blanket in a box downstairs. later in the evening, she ended up curling up under the basement steps...I could barely reach her but I petted her some more and talked to her...I went to check on her again at about 10:00 last night and she was gone.

I held her and cried my eyes out. I wrapped her in a paper bag and buried her by candlelight in a nice little area on the side of my house and put flowers on top of the dirt.

I'm just so sad, she was such a sweet little cat.

RIP, Bat ~ April 2000 - May 2009

I'm so sorry, it's always hard because they are so precious and our pets become members of our families!

Oh that breaks my heart. :help: I'm so sorry! :hug:

She was so young..way too young to die. I have a cat that's nearly 18 and I worry and watch her closely.

So sorry for your loss. It is always so hard to say goodbye to one of our beloved four-legged family members.

I'm so sorry. Fur, feathers, scales, or skin--we're all connected.

Oh Demonica, I'm so very sorry for your loss. :sad: My heart is breaking for you and your family. I wish I could be there to give you a hug and let you cry on my shoulder. I'm just so sorry...just remember that you gave her the best life she could have ever wished for, take comfort in knowing that you were the best mom she could have ever hoped for. :hug:

Thank you everyone, so much. It has been many, many years since I last lost a pet and though I know it hurts, I forgot just how badly it hurts. I'm just thankful for the time I did have with her.

I am so sorry for your loss. I know how it hurts, but think of the wonderful like she had. *hugs*

I am so sorry for your loss. They so quickly become part of us.

Sorry about the loss of your friend, Bat. We lost our rather young cat, Snickers, two months ago and it's been so hard. Take care.........:sad:

So sorry to hear about Bat, Demonica. I know how much it hurts to lose a pet. I had my Golden cremated and her ashes are on my mantle. I've left instructions that she is to go with me when I pass on. I've also got a feral stray cat that has taken up in our garage who now claims us as her parents and, even though I'm terribly allergic to cats, she's become such a sweet kitty that I know I'm going to miss her terribly when her time comes. Just know you have lots of friends here who can sympathize totally with what you're going through. My heart hurts for you. :heart:

I'm sorry for your loss, Demonica. I know your heart aches for her. It is obvious that she was much loved and a big part of your family.

Demonica - I ache reading your post. We love our petchildren so much. Sending good thoughts your way.

Demonica, so sorry for your loss of Bat. I'm sure she felt very loved. They do become part of our family. One of my kitties died in my arms a little over a year ago. She was very old (we didn't even know how old...she came to us as an adult cat, and we had her for about 15 years), but it still hurts when they leave us. Take care.

Im so sorry for your lost

Oh, Demonica, I'm so sorry.
Guess what? I too lost my cat a few nights ago. Her name was Tinkerbell and she was 14 years old. She was fine, then all of a sudden she started limping around and acting kinda funny. Then during the night she jumped up and was sleeping by my husband, who was on the couch and he said she started to meow real loud two or three times and stretch out her legs pushing them against his back! She crawled down by his feet then and died.
I am so SO sad. That is the bad thing about our pets; we get so attached then they die.
You're in my thoughts Demonica.

Oh, Suzi, I'm so sorry to hear about your baby too :hug: It's amazing how much our pets become our family and it hurts so much when they are gone.

:hug: hugs to you all who have recently lost a pet...it's very hard when we lose one of our babies :heart:
