I lost my beloved Punkin 6/23/2008 at 4:25 pm. She was 14 years old. She was diagnosed as diabetic in March 2008, but what ultimately took her life was kidney failure. By the time she started showing symptoms, it was too late, she was in complete kidney failure. She was so sick, I had to euthanize her to end her misery. I found her on a highway on my way to work, 4 weeks old, with a head injury. I nursed her back to health, and we had 14 years together-now it seems so short. My heart is broken, and I wish I could have done something to save her. She took part of me with her. Her spot on the sofa is empty-I can't look at it.. I will always miss her. I have one other cat, Phantom, who is 13. Both of them got me over some rough patches in my life. I hope this pain will fade over time.

I'm so sorry for your loss. What a lucky day that was for little Punkin when you found her on that highway 14 years ago.
You gave her so much love and a safe home and she gave you all her love and friendship. She knows how very lucky she was.
She's at the Bridge bragging about you and how she's the luckiest cat in the world.
I know how much you're hurting Andrea and how the pain seems endless. It's important to mourn the loss of your special relationship and it might help to just write down how you feel and give extra special attention to Phantom who will be grieving too.
Sending you many many hugs during this very painful time,

Thank you everyone. It makes me feel better to know that others understand what I'm feeling.

My heart goes out to you and I wish I could ease your pain. Punkin and you shared many loving happy years together. It is very hard to look at their favorite places in our home and not cry out to them. She will always be in your heart and she knows how very much you loved her. My prayers go out to you and Punkin. Love and Hugs Mary, Meisters Mom

I am so sorry for your loss of Punkin. I lost my Dusty one day after you lost your Punkin. I also had to put him to sleep to end his misery. I completely understand the pain you are going through, as I am going through the same pain. The only condolence is knowing that they are up in heaven free of any pain and suffering.
I hope you will feel better with each passing day.

I am so sorry about your loss of Punkin. I lost my Little Angel Christopher over 15 months ago. I know what a nightmare life becomes. We all try to remember the happy memories, but remembering them causes pain and tears as they are no longer here. I miss Christopher as much today as the day he left and I still cry for him every day. I will miss him Forever. I just wanted you to know that we are all here when you need us and we all understand. Big Hugs Georgeann and Christopher Forever

I am so sorry for the loss of your precious Punkin.
My cat Cheeseburger was also very sick, and it seemed to happen so suddenly. We let him go on May 4th 2008. I do believe he is free of sickness and pain now; when I had a dream of him recently he looked so strong and healthy, not sick and exhausted. We were all blessed to have our special angels share our lives and our hearts. I am trying so hard to find peace and comfort in all of the cherished memories I have of my Cheeseburger. I am hoping Cheese and Punkin found each other and are now friends. Please know you have friends here who truly care and understand. Dee Cheeseburger's Mom email@example.com Dee + Cheeseburger = LOVE
