Read Peg’s Touching Story of her Dead Cat
I have found that many cat and dog owners have at least once in their lives suffered a loss of a wonderful friend (i.e. cat), a life long companion.
Such an occurrence is very sad. The sufferings and pain from a death of a cat or dog is sometimes a very difficult thing to cope with. Some people cry and grieve for years over a lost cat or dog, and some people forget sooner about their dead pet….
Here is a lovely little story about peg’s dead cat.
This is how it all began:
“Willy, my cat, came into my life at about 10 weeks old, following the death of my husband in 1997.
Willy was a special cat who knew all of my moods and was there for me every moment of every day.
He had always had what we thought to be a “hairball cough” that I treated with hairball remedy.
Last October the cough grew more persistent and I took him to my vet who thought he had feline asthma. He was treated with prednisone, but did not get better. In January the vet did a complete blood workup, which did not show any problems, so the prednisone was continued. Then on Feb. 17 I noticed he was having labored breathing so I watched him very closely for the next 2 days. On Feb. 19 (his 10th birthday), he wasn’t any better so I took him back to the vet. He did an x-ray and it showed a large mass taking up space in his lung. It was inoperable, and I had to make the decision to have him euthanized the next day.
I was there with him when the procedure was done and I kept my hand on his head until it was over. I have cried every day since then, and will continue to grieve for a time. I had him cremated and brought the ashes home this week. In the spring I will bury his ashes along with his favorite toy, which was a stuffed catnip mouse, in my flower garden. Since I’m a widow, I’ll probably be the only one there, unless my daughter and her family come out. I will put a pet grave marker on top of his grave.
He was my best friend, and he filled that hole in my heart with sunshine and joy every day of his life. He will never be forgotten. I have photos of him all over my house, because he went into every room in my house. He slept on the foot of my bed, and loved to snuggle in my lap.”
“I love you dear Willy and always will!”
