so sorry, having been in that situation many times I know exactly how you feel. However you chose the kindest thing for your pet. Your cat though will remain in your heart and in your memories for ever more - never far away xx

I have just returned home from the same trip with our 14 year old cat Bunny, we had the same just over 2 weeks ago with her daughter Eve, so are now down to 6 cats, Eve had a heart problem, Bunny was old and getting thin and after Eve went seemed to just give up the ghost. RIP Eve and Bunny.
So when I say I know what you are going through, its because I do. You will see your friends at the rainbow bridge. I know its hard now, but it does get better.
In the past we have taken in a very sick cat, taken it to the vets, and unfortunately he didnt make it, we had Elmo less than 24 hours and he racked up a nearly £300 bill, but at least when he went he had a name and was loved.

ps Bunny has always sat on my lap since we got her, if I was sitting down she would be there, on the trip to the vets she made a huge effort and climbed out of the basket onto my lap where she settled for the drive to the vet, considering her condition, this must have been a sheer effort of willpower as she had not shown that strength for a few days now.

More (((hugs))) for Grendel and Sparky here.   :(

Isn't it amazing how much these little furry beings mean to us?  They can be so aloof at times and yet so loving when we need them most.  I've rarely spent a day without a pusskin in my life and hope that will continue.  :)

Sorry for your loss, it's hard I know, but you did the best by your kitty. 
Hugs. x

I'm on the brink of tears already!
I have 4 furry moggy friends - 2 10year olds and 2 mini-mogs born on our allotment on May 4th this year and boy do they have a feral streak!

Would have been easy to give up on the kittens with all the stress they caused the big cats initially, but while the kittens are quiet and not too bouncy, all 4 now sleep together.
Dreading ill-health problems with the big cats as they are getting on a little.

We also have an ancient chinchilla who refuses to give up the ghost! Ben and I have been together for 17 years today which makes Charlie, the chinchilla at least 18 1/2 if not 19 years old! We got him aged about 2yrs!

My absolute sympathies and hugs with any of you who have had to make such awful, if necessary decisions.
