Fuck. FUCK, Kyle, I'm sorry. I understand completely, but I'm sorry.
I might be in a similar boat soon, so this is hard. You did EVERYTHING you could for her. I know you always will.
it is your obligation and unfortunate task to determine this fate that she herself wants. It's a release that she needs at this time and you gave her what few others could.
Thank you guys for giving her a loving home. It's a tough world for our furry friends.
It *is* sad, but not, because she had so many years of struggle - but she was warm and fed and loved for these last years of her life. And even if she never became an affectionate lapcat, she enjoyed that Quality of Life you strived so hard to provide for her, up to the kindest, gentlest passing you can arrange.
We should all be so lucky.
be something positive for someone:--turn this moment into shining, radiant good.
i will, i promise... as soon as i manage to stop blubbering everywhere.
... I dont know what to feel. i have been a fan of her back in the 1ear days as well as Scrunch. I have a new feral kitten who has adopted us so i guess it has all worked out for the best i'd have to turn away a cute grey kitten cause i would have already had momcat had i gotten her.
Our cats Rascal , dolly, pollux, and now Bootsy wish Momcat farewell on her next journey
That gray kitten is especially adorable. What a gorgeous color.
You are a good egg, kylecassidy.
I've been blessed that my vet, in times such as these, would come to the house. It's so much easier on the kitteh, and me because I don't have to drive afterwards...
**Hugs** to Momcat and you and Trill.
My eyes are full of tears, but I can't get past thinking about how at least for a time she was well taken care of by people that cared about her. There is nothing more a furry friend could ask for.
You and Trillian are definitely two of the good ones in the world and my heart goes out to you guys.
It is for the best for her and all of you. My teary eyed sympathies go out to you and Trill *hugs*
Some of my best cat moments have occured...oddly enough... when the needle was going in and they each looked at me like they were saying "It's about freaking time you understood!" It's just the last few months leading up to that moment that suck and the first few weeks after that moment that really suck.
I am sad to hear this news. I was a fan. She was my second favorite psycho-tortie in Philly. (Sorry, Nefer is still the regional champ on psychosis.)
I will pour some of Noodle's cat food in the dirt and she and I will meow together in mourning.
You are a pretty spectacular human being sir.
This sums up my thoughts perfectly.
if you have the courage to ship her out to me I will have Beetleman mike make her immortal and send back her cleaned bones so that she may always be with you up on a bookshelf or ledge
I am sad, but not sorry. Sometimes the best thing is to bring the end while things are good rather than wait until they turn south. Theres something to be said for leaving on a good note.
I sent some money in her honor, as I had to use the services of a rescue center once myself. Fortunately my baby that I had to drop off was later adopted by my grand parents so at least I get to visit her and not wonder where she is and how she's doing.
I'm so sorry. You've given her as wonderful a life as she could have for the last few years. Part of that wondefulness is you choosing to not torment her her with procedures and car trips that won't help her and that she won't understand.
(That's Newt in the icon. I found him on the side of the road at around 4 weeks old with a respiratory infection & every parasite known to man).
She's very lucky to have you guys, whether she sees you that way or not. I haven't been reading your blog very long, but I can still see the amount of love and patience and regard you have for Momcat, and I respect that SO much. She's absolutely gorgeous, and she'll live on in many hearts.
Real love is letting go. You and Trillian are very special people. I can see that all the way up here north of Boston.
I'm really sorry. It's never less than plain horrible to lose a pet, regardless of how social and cuddly or wild and temperamental they might be. You've done the very best by her that could have been done. She's a damn lucky cat. I'm off to hug and scritch all mine again now, and make a donation in Momcat's honor.
I can't not be sorry. That's always a bloody awful decision to make.
You have such a brilliant perspective on this and I wish you the best. It's such an agonizing thing for any pet owner to go through and I think we've all followed everything awesome you've done for her and all the others. Take care.
I foster cats and kittens for a rescue group. I know how hard it is. *hugs you both* and a special knowing look for momcat. xo
She was a broken one that I couldn't fix.
well, no, but you let her be broken, and that's worth something, too.
