Goodbye, Friend

photo of my cat ccYesterday afternoon, I lost my best friend. I've written how over the past month he's gone from sad to worse. Unfortunately, we never could get a diagnosis, and he kept slipping further every day.

photo of my cat ccFor the past week, I've been force feeding to keep him alive. Yesterday morning, I think both of us finally had enough of that. It was time for him to go. He was fourteen years old.

The photographs were taken earlier this week.

Sorry to hear about your cat, Chip. He's got some good company today with Johnny Cash and John Ritter though.

I am sorry that you lost your friend, but I am very gratified to have been part of the good-bye.

Thanks for your insights and wisdom.

I've lost animals (dogs) and it always surprised me how deep they have burrowed into my heart. Thinking gentle thoughts about you and your loss.

Warmly ,

ps Judging from the posts you do seem to have lots of folks that care.

re: Goodbye, Friend

See ya on the other side, scaredy-cat. (Maybe you won't have to panic about me always trying to pet you now).

So far I'd have to rate this month about an F.

re: Goodbye, Friend

That's for sure.

re: Goodbye, Friend

Sorry that you lost your buddy, Chip. I've had the good fortune to share my home and heart with eight cats over the years (never more than 2 at a time), and as each of their life spans come to an end--some short, some as long as 14 years too--I thank them for adding that little patch to the quilt of my own life.

Dear Chip, I'm so sorry. It hurts. Sending a hug and hoping you have someone to lean on. Let me know if you need a shoulder.

re: Goodbye, Friend

I'm very sorry to hear about this. Hang in there.

re: Goodbye, Friend

Like all the above, very sorry to hear the news...
