I had to put my best friend to sleep today. Not a good time. She was the best cat I ever had and I have had a lot of cats. I have no kids so she was like my child. She was 17. A sad sad day.

I really feel like eating right now and I probably will. I know it won't solve any problems or bring her back, but I can take some comfort in it.

    So sorry to hear that you lost her, she's a beauty!

    It is so hard to bear when we lose a cat we have had so long.

    If you go for the eating just do your best to have a little of what you fancy.
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss, our two feline friends are now just over a year old now but we lost our last one to cancer at 14, five years ago and it was really rough.

    My heart is with you - this cat looked a beauty.

    I have 3 fur babies myself. Just the thought of losing one of them makes me unbearably emotional. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. She was a beautiful girl! An angel with fur! emoticon RIP kitten. :(

    I am sooo sorry to hear. I had cats growing up and they lived to be 15. They too were put to sleep. I was very sad too.

    Wow, 17!!!! My boys are 9 and I think that's pretty aged. Sorry for your loss. I know how it feels.

    So sad, I know how you are feeling. My cats are my children too, same as for you, and it's devastating to lose one, especially after so long. Nothing I can say will make it better, just know that people are thinking of you.

    so sorry, we have two little dogs and my son just got a new kitten last week. I love them all- they sit with me in my chair and give me so much comfort and peace.
    I had to put my first dog to sleep a couple years ago- it was so sad- he was definitely his mom's boy.
    They definitely love you more than any person ever will at least in my experience and they love us unconditionally.
    I hope sometime you will be able to share your love with another pet.

    I feel for you. We had two cats - Beans and Cocoa. Someone accidentally let them out or they snuck out on a very hot night and Beans was killed by a coyote. It has been a year and we still think of him every day. His brother Cocoa hasn't been the same and he is pretty frail. We really spoil him now. He has had some liver problems so we really baby him. We still feel sad but we know we treated him very well and that's all an animal needs. He had a very good life and I can see your gorgeous kitty did as well.

    Even when you don't interact with cats they seem to always be near you. They somehow become more than just pets because they see all you do and delight in even the boringest events. My cat is a snoopervisor when I sweep.

    I hope you lovely memories of your beautiful kitty help with the sorrow. I won't tell you not to eat, Take comfort where you can and tomorrow will be another day. emoticon emoticon

    I am so sorry for you loss. I have had a few animals pass that were so special to me that it took me a long time to get over it. Still I am not over all. However, I take comfort in knowing that they are waiting at the rainbow bridge to welcome me when I go to heaven.
    I am so sorry, you do whatever you need to comfort your self.

    My heart goes out to you . . . . so sorry for the loss of your furkid.
    Our Kitty Kitty was 19 when she crossed over the rainbow bridge last year.
    I still get a twinge in my heart when I look at the spot on the roof where she used to sit and bathe in the sunshine.

    It is a horribly difficult decision to make, but when you know it is for their best, it is the responsible, loving thing to do.

    Yesterday, I saw a cartoon picture of an older man who was just entering heaven. When he gave his name to the angel that met him at the gate, the angel replied "Oh, so you finally made it! Rover will be so glad to know you're here. He's been telling everybody about you!"

    So sorry for your loss, I cannot imagine what a sad day it must be for you. She was a beauty. I know I cannot say anything to lessen your loss. I have 2 girls myself - they are sisters and they keep me company in my home office. Take care.

    I am so very sorry for your great loss. May she rest in peace.

    I hope that you won't gravitate to the eating for too long. The food never really helps.

    OMG! I am soooooo sorry to hear your news. My heart breaks for you! I hope you will give yourself whatever time you need to grieve. Often our pets are even closer to our heart than our "blood" family members.

    Read this poem. It has helped me in the past:

    Remember happier, funny times and don't punish yourself with food.
