Hi All, 

My two beautiful cats that I've had since college just passed away.  One passed a few weeks ago then her sister passed yesterday.  I know 21 is a long, beautiful life for two sister cats to have with each other, but in a way it makes it harder for me.  I'm so used to making sure the two of them were well taken care off, now that they've been separated by death, death is all I can think about.  I'm, not suicidal, just very sad.  

The first cat died of heart failure, and I had to take her to the vet to have her put down as she was having trouble breathing.  The second cat got out of the hospital Monday then died of a heart attack on Wednesday (at home, thank God).  Both cats recently went blind.  After the one cat lost her sister, all she did was look for her.  I'm glad she passed but I owed it to her to keep her alive as long as I could.  I just miss them so much.  

Thanks for listening.

Rich,
I am so sorry for your loss. I know everyone says this but I do feel your pain and I wish for you and everyone here that there was magical words that would heal our broken hearts. It doesn't matter how long they share their lives with us, it stills hurts. Termy shared 16 wonderful years with me but it wasn't long enough. I know that our babies put so much love into our lives because they know it has to last our life time not theirs. It's okay to be sad and to cry. It's a way to deal with our loss. I feel lonely all the time and sad too. They (our pets) love so unconditionally and when they leave us there is such a void in our lives because of that love. I am so glad that you shared your life with them and they with you. We are the lucky ones, really to have experienced this kind of love and companionship. I was so hoping Termy would have just went to sleep and passed but I had to make the decision to let him go and I am still dealing with the guilt and sadness. Thank you for loving them.
Love and Doggie hugs
Termy's mom

Thank you for this reply.  It's true.  For the past three years I've been able to help them age gracefully.  I bought them stairs so they could continue getting up to the bed, an automatic kitty litter machine to cover their pop, and in more recent months, a lot of pet visits, fluids and pills, all which made their life feel normal up until the last few weeks.  I'll miss doing that for them.  I wanted them to live forever and it's going to take some time getting used to. I don't feel guilt.  I feel sadness.  I still have a lot of their things laying around.  I'm getting rid of them slowly, hopefully going to people with cats who really need the support.
