Does the pain ever get easier?I lost my cat george 2 days ago.All I do is cry when I think about him.I found George and 2 other siblings at a daycare where I work.We put them in a box and covered them(it was cold)and put them back where I found them.The next moring it was apparent mom kitty wasn't coming back for them.I brought them home and I bottle feed them and would wash their bottoms so they could do their duty.As they got a little bit bigger everytime there was a noise george would be the first one to poke his head out of the box to see what was going on.(thats how he got the name george(curiours george).I gave the other two kittens away(I have 2 more)but george made his way into my heart.He brought so much laughter and love into our homes the 10 short months I had him.George loved to be outside.I put him out that night,and the next day he came home, his mouth was tore up bad.We took him to the vet a dog she thinks (he played with our yorkies and wasn't scared of dogs)got him and broke his jaw so bad it was beyond fixing and she thought it would be best to put him down.I have never put an animal down I love them to much, so I feel so guilty and the hurt is horrible.I hope he knew how much I loved him and I couldn't bring him home and let him starve to death(jaw was so bad he couldn't eat).I just wished he would've came back in that night.I hope he forgave me for putting him down.

Oh, what a sad story. It is always so hard to lose them so young. You have to know that you did the best thing for him although it was probably the hardest thing you've ever done.
George knows you loved him. He always knew that. You were so good to him and took good care of him. And the love doesn't stop. He'll always have that special place in your heart. When you need him to be with you, he'll be there. Many of us here have had special little signs from our babies at the Bridge. Look for them, listen for his presence.
I love the story of his name; Curious George. When you can, post a picture of him; we love seeing the pictures. We also love hearing all the endearing stories about the Bridge babies. When you feel you can.
Two days is not long at all. It's been 8 months since my schnauzer Molly left us. I couldn't bear to post a picture until just a few weeks ago. She would have been 11 in May. Give yourself some time to grieve. However long it takes. It helps to talk about the good and the bad here; we're here to support you and listen. When everyone else in your world wishes you'd get on with it, or you're feeling weepy, or you're just plain sad, come here.
You are in my prayers. I'm sure my Molly met George when he came to Rainbow Bridge; she always did like cats.

Oh how tragic for you. I am so very sorry for your loss. George knows how much you love him. Godspeed dear George, fly free with the angels.

Oh I'm so sorry. What a sad story. George was such a lucky boy to have you as his fur mom. You obviously loved him very much. It's horrible to lose our babies so young. I lost my yellow lab Luna at the age of 4 to cancer, so I do know how you feel. I hope you know that George isn't mad at you at all. He knows your heart and your love for him, and it's that love that allowed you to set him free. He's a little angel now, looking out for you. Have faith in knowing you will be reunited with George again. He waits for you at the bridge. May God grant you peace during this difficult time. Many hugs to you.
