Okay, well I haven't written a lot of threads lately, and I thought I would add one in life sucks... because at the moment it does... So I thought fuck it! Might aswell..


My cat died today, I only found out today after I came back from food shopping, I thought today was going to be good after all the other crap.

My cat was staying in the States (because I was living there for a while) we were trying to get the women to send him over here for awhile, but we haven't been able to reach her because she has been ill.

And now this. Apperantly they don't even know how he died.

Now you may be thinking, "it's only a cat" and yeah you're right.
But, I had him since he was a baby, I saw him being born, I had his mum and dad as cats, and all his brothers and sisters. He was the last out of the family I had.

I hadn't seen him for 6 months because he was over there, I just wanted to see him one last time.
I keep thinking how I just left him there, and didn't get to see him again..


(thanks for reading, I guess)

i know how you feel and that does suck. i don't know that you can call this the same thing. I had a pair of hamsters that turn into 14 hamsters that turned into likw 26 hamsters. i had always kept the mom and dad and two little grey ones. after the mom and dad died i still had the grey ones. i sold the other to the pet store as the got old enough. when the two grey ones finally past i couldn't stand to know that they dided from being lonely cause i had only left the two. the were always laying against one another and chasing each other and playing. that is the way we found them was cuddled up into a ball in there house.:(

I had a dog we called him "Rags" (when he came to me, he was rag and bones, thats how I decided on a name) , I got him as a stray, my Grandad (now gone) used to own a sweet shop in Liverpool, England, he found him sitting outside in the rain looking at the sweets.

When he finally trusted him, he took him in.

Rags then ended up with me...he died 3 years ago, i loved that dog, he was crazy, definately had a screw loose, but that was his charm...when rags died i was destroyed, he was family. I do not keep photographs... not that type of person really, but I kept one of him... ill have to dig it out.

Im really sorry to hear about Rocky, i know how you feel.:(

oh meh :hug2: I know how you feel, a cat is never "just a pet" a pet is often something very near to your heart..a family member that always loves you no matter what..so no wonder you miss your cat

Never had a cat i owned die of old age, the one i own now is still alive and well, and the previous one got run over by a car :(

Sorry to hear about Rocky, im sure he was extremely special to you and you'll remember for a long time, if not forever :)

On a side note, my cat (the one that got run over) was named Rags... well, Raggedy, but I called her Rags for short. She was awesome :)

meh I am truly sorry to hear about your loss. I've lost pets, and avoided having them for years because it hurts so damn much. I don't want to imagine losing my cat, he's too fucking young and cool, I'd just cry my eyes out. Taking such pure love away from us helps make this reality hell, and I hate it. Good luck healing.

Plus anyone who thinks of a pet as "Just a cat/dog/etc/" is just too heartless. My cat is my fucking boy, I think of him as my wild son. I don't want to imagine losing him.

Thanks JLXC, I'm still really upset, I feel I let him down in a way...


Rocky was a size of a middle dog. He had be put in a bigger cage when flown over to the states... Heh, he wasn't fat, he was just really big.

Meh, sorry to hear about rocky. I myself have had many pets, cats, dogs, etc. Many have died. Each one takes a small piece of your heart. But each one also leaves a bit of themself in return.

I've got two cats that I've had for at least 8 or 9 years. One of them is missing, somewhere in this city with some evil bitch who failed to return him, and the other is fortunatly still with me.

I'm not sure what I'll do when my kitties pass on, but I know that I'll have to be cool with it, and not fret too much.

It's natural for one to grieve over a loss, even if it's an animal. They're family members too.

But don't let it eat you up too much.

:( = bad
