RIP my beautiful Baby

Friday, March 15, 2013

My beautiful 14-year-old cat, Baby, passed away peacefully on Tuesday at the veterinarian. He was suffering from oral cancer, and a tumor had developed on the right side of his face, making it very difficult for him to eat and also making him blind in his right eye. It has been a really difficult week, and I think I'm okay until I see little reminders of him around the house and realize that he's not here with us anymore, and then I'm overwhelmed with sadness again. The hardest part is coming home and not being greeted by him. I just feel so empty. He would always greet me when I came home, every morning he would cuddle on my lap while I drank my coffee and ate my breakfast, every night before I went to bed, I would go downstairs and check on him to make sure he was okay and had plenty of food and water; now I don't have any of that anymore and I just feel empty. If I was upset or pissed off about something, I would just sit with him for awhile because he instantly brightened my day. I don't have any of that anymore, and it makes me so sad. We got him when I was 8 years old, so he was present for the majority of my life, and he was my only pet. He has a special place in my heart, and I plan on getting a tattoo of his paw print in a few weeks. My sister and I even made impressions of his paw print Monday night.



Thank you to everyone who has kept my baby in your thoughts and prayers; I made a few blogs and status updates within the past few months and didn't get back to everyone, but I really, truly appreciate it.

RIP Baby, I love you always emoticon

    I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved friend, companion and loving kitty... my condolences. The pain of this loss may never go away, but time will soften the hurt. He will always be a part of you, and will live on in your memories of him.

P.S. I really like the idea of a commemorative tattoo!

    Sorry for you loss, pets really do become part of the family. I know my cats Jack and Jill have, anyway. What a gorgeous cat he was! Looks just like my Jack. As long as he was loved, that's all that matters. emoticon

    Kristen,

I'm so very sorry for your loss of your beloved Baby! He was a beautiful cat, and I am sure you gave him a fabulous, loving life! They really are such a part of our daily lives, and always there for us with unconditional love...it is quite an empty feeling to lose them.

May your pictures and fondest memories help you through this overwhelming and painful time. I have four cats now that are my babies~ and I've lost one before -- I really do understand the depth of the bond & love.

Take care. I love the paw print impressions, so sweet!

    I am so sorry for your loss. It is such a hard time in life when you lose something so important to you. We just had to put my moms kitty to sleep because he had kidney failure. It's so hard but just remember that he knows how much you loved him and he had a great life with you and your family!

    Sorry for your loss. Our pets are just like our children~they leave a big hole when they are gone. When I lost our dog Sierra, we said we weren't going to get anymore, but about 1 month later we had a new puppy-Effieannie!

    I just lost my dog of 16 years in Aug. 2012, so I understand the part of them greeting you at the door...its been over 7 months and still there are times I think Katie will be on the other side of the door. I am sorry for your loss, and hopefully you will be able to have sweet memories, and put aside the part of losing her.
