    Simba's still hanging in there, but Deb & I are struggling

    We did talk to our vet about it many months ago, and she knows how years ago he had to be netted to get his teeth worked on and it was horrible, the woman who had many years of experience doing that said "I hope I never have to do that again", and she agreed with us it wouldn't be worth it...

    Simba's still hanging in there, but Deb & I are struggling

    Simba basically lives in the kitchen now, at least during the day, he stays in there and pushes us for food, we give it to him, he eats, but most likely it is because his thyroid is off, but as stated we're not going to take him to a vet at age 24, 25, 26, who knows? He's frail and if he would...

    We had to put our Stanley down this morning

    This morning I was making the bed and had the tv on like I usually do, and when I went to turn it off I heard a meow/cry from outside the closed bedroom door and it sounded just like Stanley. For a moment I thought maybe it was Sylvester but it didn't sound quite like him, and when I opened the...

    Simba's still hanging in there, but Deb & I are struggling

    For several days now, all of a sudden Simba is eating the wet food again, we are very pleased but also wonder why this turn of events. He had been yelling at us a lot for hamburger and chicken and pork, but ever since we had to put our little Stanley down Easter morning all of a sudden he is...

    Anyone else feel the 4.8 magnitude Earthquake centered in New Jersey today?

    I go to Bangor on a pretty regular basis to pick up a client who lives there, I work for Sights for Hope in Allentown, PA. and she is one of the farthest away clients that I pick up, takes me about 45 minutes or so to get to her!

    We had to put our Stanley down this morning

    UPS was here just awhile ago, Stan's ashes came home. We still cannot believe that is him in that box, it just doesn't feel right. But Stanley is home now, where he belongs :rbheart:

    At work here in Allentown, PA. and awhile ago I heard some rumbling, thought someone was moving stuff around upstairs but all of a sudden lots of workers talking about it, turns out it was a quake in New Jersey! I called Deb at home to make sure she was okay and she was, felt it too but thought...

    We had to put our Stanley down this morning

    Since we lost Stanley on Sunday morning: 1. We EASILY caught Sylvester to take him to the vet Wednesday morning for his haircut and checkup, it usually is a HUGELY stressful event chasing him down but it went probably as easy as it could've gone, and he had a great checkup. 2. Simba, our old...

    We had to put our Stanley down this morning

    I am so sorry for your losses, it really hits hard... My mom said the same thing to me about me regretting being gruff with Stan at times when he was pushing me, she said "he probably just thought "ha ha, I got him again!" whenever he made me nuts lol!!

    We had to put our Stanley down this morning

    Today we caught Sylvester and I took him to the vet for his haircut and checkup, it's usually a tussle and quite stressful but this morning it went like a breeze; I said outloud a few times "talk to him Stanley, tell him not to be scared, that he'll be alright and come home again", and he must...

    We had to put our Stanley down this morning

    And we also think of other impending deaths that are coming, Simba who is 23-24 maybe older is so thin and keeps eating and drinking and going to the litter box most likely because of his thyroid or God forbid he has cancer too, Deb said last night "I don't think it wil be long for him, God...

    We had to put our Stanley down this morning

    I had another little "mental talk" with Stan last night because I once again felt "guilty" because he would more often than not be at the bottom of the 13 steps when I would be coming downstairs from the bedroom in the morning, and I of course would say "hi Stan" to him but as I said before he...

    We had to put our Stanley down this morning

    Thank you. I am so sorry for your loss too, it is so sudden and catstrophic, you cannot believe it has happened, and it hurts so much. I am glad that you found some comfort in writing this. :alright: :rbheart: It was easier to deal with somewhat during the day while I was at work, but being...

    We had to put our Stanley down this morning

    I also remebered this from the other night, the first night that we were at the ER Vet, people on the left of us had an all black cat in a carrier that looked like Slim, our cat that we had to put down there in December. A little while later, someone set a carrier down with a Calico cat in it...

    We had to put our Stanley down this morning

    Thank you all for the wonderful replies, they all made us cry but in a good way. We are talking about him and his funny things that he used to do, he was a character for sure! But we also talk about how we are still in shock that he got so bad so fast, I'm sure this was brewing for awhile but he...

    We had to put our Stanley down this morning

    A few days ago Stanley, about a 9 year old grey/black Tabby that I rescued from my old place of employment about 8 years ago or so ago, wasn't acting right, lethargic, mopey, not interested in anything and that wasn't him, he was always active but over the last few months Deb said several times...

    7 hours in vet ER last night with Stanley

    He has a fluid filled mass in his one lung, the prognosis is not good. She said they could "tap" it to see if it gave him some relief but she is pretty sure that it is cancer and we are not going to put him through anything harsh, she said she had a dog that had lung cancer and she put him...

    7 hours in vet ER last night with Stanley

    It's 2:30 in the morning, we just got back from the Vet ER, we took him back again, he just isn't right, very listless and when we pick him up he is like dead weight, trying to go relax but doesn't have the energy so back we went and saw the same vet, this time she is going to do x rays and let...

    7 hours in vet ER last night with Stanley

    They did not do an x-ray, she said they could tell something with the urine condition and bladder saying it wasn't a blockage, but I told them he's a "chewer", likes to chew on plastic and things like that and she said "if he had that type of blockage he most likely will be throwing up" which he...
