The Sad Tale of a Cat…


Well, New Year’s Eve is not an especially happy one for us this year. Today, we lost ‘Little Black Kitty’, pictured above. The event was made all the sadder by the fact that we couldn’t be with her at the end. She became very sick a little over a week ago and, with our local vet being absent, we shipped her to Ottawa. Despite whole batteries of tests and examinations by a neurologist and internal specialist she just deteriorated and we had to make a hard decision. She was the quietest and best behaved of all our cats and she will be missed very much…

  3. So sorry to hear about your loss….we have always had animals and to say that that are an integeral part of your family is an understatement. Time helps but forgetting will never happen. Be well and best of the new year to you

    It is so sad when it happens but especially so when it occurs at a time the world is supposedly celebrating . . . . glad the one you lost was not the only one in the family . . . do hope 2015 will be a peaceful one . . .

    • We got two kittens a few months back… it probably won’t be peaceful for a while yet 🙂

  7. Such a beautiful cat. Sorry for your loss. Hopefully 2015 will be less emotional and bring you many moments of joy with your remaining cats.

  8. Heartbreaking! It’s never easy, but it is compounded by the separation at the end. I’m so sorry.

  9. I’m sorry to hear about your loss. My 22 year old cat was put down just before Christmas, and I’m still quite broken up about it although it’s getting a bit better each day, and I hope it will for you too

  10. I’m so sorry that you had to say goodbye to Little Black Kitty. She was a beautiful girl and lucky to have you for her human. It’s always incredibly hard to say goodbye to our fluffy family members – I typically spend days in tears. Best to you.

    • Thanks Lesley … It was a rough time but our four remaining cats have had lots of extra attention since 🙂
