    Charlie - DSH - Diagnosed with Colorectal Adenocarcinoma - Need Help.

    I realize you are struggling with this so I hope what I say does not add to the stress, but please take a little while to really think about this. It might also be helpful to reread things you have posted yourself on this site. Charlie had cancer. He was 15 years old. You spoke often of the...

    Charlie - DSH - Diagnosed with Colorectal Adenocarcinoma - Need Help.

    I am so, so sorry. I hadn't been getting on here as much lately, so was catching up on Charlie's story in your other post and then came across this new post. I know right now it hurts so very much and I wish I could take that pain away from you. But remember, the guilt comes no matter what way...

    Goodbye Sweet Sammy

    This was such a beautiful tribute to a beautiful boy. I've been thinking about Sammy a lot lately, trying to figure out some answers for you. And after reading some of the posts on this thread, there were some great points made. Like others have said, I think even if you had done the ultrasound...

    Can't stop crying

    I had to get family to pick up Snuggles' and Oliver's ashes too. I'm always a mess. You'll never be alone through this, please know that. If you post a tribute to Sammy over in the Crossing the Bridge section, you'll see even more caring individuals who will help. They listen and listen some...

    Can't stop crying

    Aww, I know, that call about the ashes is one of the hardest. For me, it's like I'm in a daze and then when that call comes, it forces me back into reality. Sammy was so lucky to have you. Gosh, I wish, like @Zylalove18 said, that we could just take away all of the pain for you. When you feel...

    Can't stop crying

    Thank you so much. Sammy is such a handsome boy! There is something special about orange kitties and male kitties as well. Here is my favorite photo of Oliver. I always loved how relaxed he always looked. They really do capture our hearts, don't they? Saying a prayer for you tonight and hoping...

    Can't stop crying

    I understand completely. I didn't get to tell Anastasia goodbye either. I honestly thought I would get her back to the vet and everything would be ok. And I understand about the house being so empty. I lost my sweet boy, Oliver, back in August. Two years ago I lost my baby girl, Snuggles. Both...

    Can't stop crying

    I am so sorry. It's so hard to lose any of our kitties, especially when it happens so sudden like that. My first cat, Anastasia, she stopped eating and I took her to the vet immediately. Bloodwork came back fine, etc. She passed away on my way back to the vet the following Wednesday. I will...

    Biopsy/Surgery to do or not?

    Oh, he looks so much like my baby Oliver that I lost a month ago. Orange kitties really are sweethearts. I really don't have any good advice here, just wanted to let you know that I will be praying for you guys. Hoping everything works out. ❤❤

    My Cat Charlie - Pancreatitis? Lost alot of weight and Little appetite

    I remember when Anastasia got sick, I had just graduated from college, was a single mom, and had very little money at the time. I took her to the vet and had the money for the bloodwork, etc. but I would never have been able to afford extensive treatment of any kind, even if they had discovered...

    My Cat Charlie - Pancreatitis? Lost alot of weight and Little appetite

    One thing I did want to add, and probably the most important, love up on Charlie. If Charlie is happy right now and eating, look at that as a blessing given to him and to you, rather than worrying that tomorrow or in a few weeks or in a few months it may change. A friend of mine reminded me of...

    My Cat Charlie - Pancreatitis? Lost alot of weight and Little appetite

    We initially thought Oliver had an infection and for a brief period, it looked that way. He perked up quite a bit after getting the antibiotic shot (along with fluids and Cerenia, which he had a couple of times). But I never had the chance to see if the prednisolone would have done anything. He...

    My Cat Charlie - Pancreatitis? Lost alot of weight and Little appetite

    I am so sorry you are going through this. I just wanted you to know that. I agree with what many are saying as far as not putting Charlie through any invasive procedures. Try to think of this way- if you were feeling sick with this, what would you want someone doing to you? Based upon what I...

    Just looking for empathy: Cat with IBD + who knows what else

    Gosh, poor Maggie and poor you. I don't really have any good advice. Wish I did. But I wanted you to know that I admire your strength and your efforts in taking care of your baby. I have always taken for granted, many times, that my cats will be in good health until older. And when they have...

    Thank you. It is so hard. So very hard. We will see them again soon though. Please take care of yourself as well. ❤❤

    My little Gem

    I am so sorry for your loss. Oh my goodness, do I understand everything you are experiencing. I had to let my 13 year old baby, Oliver, go on August 17th and I have questioned everything. After what we thought was just an infection, they did x-rays and found a mass in his stomach that was most...

    Rest in peace my sweet kitty

    She is a beauty. Look at those eyes. I am so sorry for your loss. It is so hard to let them go and even harder to have to be the one to make the decision, but you did what was best for her and like many others will tell you on here- you gave her the best gift in the end. My first cat, Anastasia...

    Lost my buddy today

    I am so sorry. He is such a handsome kitty. I wish I could provide the answers for you, but I will say even when you think you know the answers, it just seems to be in our nature to question how and why. I recently lost my own sweet boy, Oliver, and even though I had an x-ray showing the...

    Devastated. Again.

    Thank you so much and I'm so sorry for your loss. I wish, more than anything, that I could take away all the sadness that is a part of this world. We can only look forward to seeing them again. You all have been so wonderful. :redheartpump::redheartpump::redheartpump::redheartpump:

    Devastated. Again.

    Thank you. I am so sorry for the loss of your daughter. I can't even imagine. And I hear about all of these animals that are given up when their owners pass. It is so sad- they need help just as much as we do. Smokey is so lucky to have you. And in turn, Smokey has helped you. Bless you both. My...
