I lost my beautiful baby girl last week and can't seem to stop crying. Her name was Yngwie (a boys name). She was with me 18.5 long years. I miss her so much. I am having a very hard time being without her. Our energies were so mingled together. She had to be pts on May 23rd.
I have been coming here and find it quite comforting. I haven't posted until now because of sorrow and I have been writing all my letters to her. She was a really neat cat. And of course spoiled rotten. I have been coming to this site and reading many of the posts and find this place to be quite comforting. She was always quite healthy so when she started getting sick and going down hill last fall I knew the time was coming soon. She had a loss of red blood cells then and did ok over the winter. Then in March of this year she had her first urinary tract infection. The vet made her better and then about a week before she had to be pts her personality changed. She always went out but never slept out there as she started doing. I think she knew she was shutting down and wanted to die outside but she never left home. She lost some weight within that week and then stopped eating all together. Friday the 23rd of May I took her to the vet and we decided it was time. The vet said she would just keep coming back since she was obviously shutting down so I decided since she was always so vibrant and alive I couldn't let her keep getting sick so I let her go.
She was a fabulous friend, slept right on my legs, drank from my water glass (even though she had her own), walked me down the stairs in the morning, and up them at night, ate meals with me,I fed her people food and was always my girl even when I was mad at her and she at me. I am happy that she went quick. I couldn't let her suffer.
I am so thankful that she always made it home after being out all night. I still can't believe the coyotes didn't get her. I will post pics when cleared through the site.
I miss you baby booger. I thank you for teaching me so much about myself. I hate that you aren't here anymore. I am lonely without you!

I am so sorry that you had to let your darling Yngwie go. It is so hard I know, but it is 1 last loving thing we can give to them........to take away thier suffering. It has been said many times here, that our babies suffering ends, and ours just begins. Thinking of you, Di xxx

I am so sorry for your loss of your baby. My kitty is 23 yrs old, so I can truly relate to how much our lives get innertwined with our furbabies. Whether we have a short time or many years, like you did, it is very difficult and lifechanging when they leave us. You did the right thing coming here where everyone understands and support is available for you. Keep coming here as you work through your grief. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Kathy

Thank you all so very much for your prayers, light and condolences. It is very comforting being with others that share the feeling of a loss of a furbaby. I just can't thank you enough and hope to give back to you and this site as much as it has given me in the last week. Cheeseburger is very precious! Jennifer (Yngwie's mom)
