View Full Version : Lost my other kitty - 2 in one month
06-02-2006, 12:47 PM
I have been married 15 years and my wife and I can't have kids. We got one Siamese kitten 3 months after we got married and another about 6 months later. We lost the first one to breast cancer 3 weeks ago (Suzuki) and I had to put down my Bentley on Tuesday evening (total renal failure). I am so sad and the house is so quiet. Most of all I am sad for my wife - she lost her "kids". :( I was laying in bed Wednesday morning early and there was no "thwomp" on the bed from Bentley coming to wake us up like he had for the last years. Bummer.

So sorry for your loss I know how hard it is they become like your kids I lost my kitten a month ago and it's been so hard. My heart goes out to you and your wife

Aww, thresh! That's so sad! :( I'm so sorry. My cat Mac (who we got before we got married) died unexpectedly in December of 2005, so I know it's hard. :( Give it a month or so then go to the pound and pick out a couple of new kittens. They won't be the same but as I found out when we got our kitten a few weeks after Mac died, you will find more room in your heart for another fur ball. :)

Sorry for the loss - especially both within a short time.
We've only had our dog Otto for about 1.5 years, but I know how much we would miss him if he died. Yeah, his jumping up on the bed in the morning can be a bit of a sleep interruption, but he just snuggles up until we get out of bed.

awww..sorry about your cat. I know that it's like losing a part of the family.

I'm real sorry for your loss. I have a very good friend that she's not able to have kids as well and she has 5 dogs. Again sorry for your loss.

Thanks all. It's really tough and I'd be lying (sp) if I said it was getting easier. I miss the meows, the banter and the warm love. I put away their litter box today (cleaned it last week, but couldn't put myself up to putting it away) and that was tough. Maybe I will have the courage to put away the kitty bowls next week. :(

As a cat owner (have five cats right now) I understand your attachment and I feel for your loss. I know you'll be able to move on, just take your time.

That is serious suckage thresher, a major loss for both of you.
I just made an appointment today for the vet to come to our home on Thursday to euthanize our last kitty. She's 24 years old and has been my an awesome cat since I got her at 6 days old. (She and her littermates had been thrown away inside a closed donut box in a dumpster at a park. My brother heard their cries and we rescued the litter.)
We've been through so much together, so making that call was about the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I owe it to her to make her passing as smooth as possible so the home visit should be the right thing.
I feel for both you and your wife thresher. I hope your pain eases as time passes. Don't rush getting rid of their things if they continue to be a comfort to you.
