Last night I had to make the decision to put my 17.5 year-old cat to sleep. It was the right thing to do, but I miss him terribly. He was just about 4 weeks old when I got him and he was my companion for so long that life without him will feel very strange.

Burt, you're a good ol' boy and may you be happy in the life at the rainbow bridge...

I'm so sorry you had to say goodbye to Burt. The hardest thing I ever did was make the same decision for my 18-year-old cat. She had been with me from age 25 to 43, through the deaths of my parents and a million other things. He was lucky to have you in all ways. Giving him the gift of an end with as little suffering as possible was the loving thing to do.

Thank you very much for your kind words. I know I did the right thing and after the past couple of weeks, there was no doubt in my mind of that.
Take Care,
Tina

Wow purrs to you. That's never an easy decision.

Sorry for your loss. I lost my older girl last September from renal failure. It took me maybe half a year to pull myself out of the grieving.
This site comforts me when I think of her:

The 17+ years of happy memories are yours to keep. There are lots of others at the RB to be Burt's friends until his best friend comes along to meet again, and continue on making more happy memories!

Thanks to all wishing the best for Burt and helping me through my grief. It has helped me tremendously. Having another cat (inky)
10 years-old has helped, not to mention his co-conspirator Muffin, thedog..
Take Care to all...
