By the sounds of it, he must've had a great life

We had to put our 5 year old cat down a few months ago - a horrible experience.

Δεν ελπίζω τίποτε. Δεν φοβάμαι τίποτε. Είμαι λεύτερος.

Justice is judgement that is both fair and forgiving. Justice is not done until everyone is satisfied, even those who offend us. Justice is not only the way we punish those who do wrong but is also the way we try to save them.

My condolences. My oldest died in March of last year. Fortunately, he was already 17, had lived a full life, and died in his sleep. I can't imagine what it must be like to have to put one down.

Just saw this thread, I had the same thing happen to me this week. Our cat (4 years old - we got him just after he was born) had been very quiet the last couple of weeks, he was sleeping a lot more than usual, he didn't want to eat sometimes and was losing weight, and overall didn't like to be touched so much anymore (while he always used to be a cat which needed a lot of affection). On sunday, we noticed he had an infection in his mouth so we decided to call a vet on monday. He took'em with him to investigate and pretty soon after that he called us: our cat was infected with FIV virus (better known as cat-Aids). Of course, that was a big shock to hear..

Basically, it does the same thing as aids does to people, it breaks down your system and leaves you vulnerable to all sorts of diseases and infections. Some cats can live with it (under extreme conditions: never go outside anymore, taking expensive medication, etc), and some are 'lucky' enough to possess the virus but never having it become active. Ours was too far along to have him live a proper life, so the best thing to do was euthanise the poor little thing..

Gotta say, it's a pretty weird feeling, not having him around anymore. I think it's amazing how much you get 'connected' with a pet after a few years, something that is very hard to explain to someone who never has/had a pet himself. I dealt with it pretty well (because I realized it was the better thing to do and not extend his life just to suffer) but especially my sister took it really hard..

Scotty doesn't know.

It's hard, always... but we must always remember that we gave them a happy and great life ...
Was he vaccinated against that virus ?

Een zachte blik,
Een blij gelaat,
Een vriendelijk woord,
Een goede daad.
Al lijkt het weinig wat je schenkt,
Je geeft soms veel meer dan je denkt.
