Though this is not the first time i experienced this situation, this is kind like different. You see, i am very much attached to him since i witnessed his birth and took care of him since then. He died because of old. I missed him a lot. I don't think i'm ever going to have another pet anymore. Your experience with your pet?

I had this cat he's called Meow. Old but I love him because he is tough and brave cat. I've lost it last 2 years. Still in my mind, he likes to go around and relax anywhere he wants. He also have he's own area. He always fight with other cats who enter his place.

As long as we have the good memories for us to hold to, our departed pets will always remain in our heart.

Ive experienced almost the same thing, I got my cat as a kitten, he was a stray and I took him in, he ended up with some sort of a disease and the vet said he wouldnt live past four but I took care of him nonetheless and he was the best cat ive ever had, he would follow me everywhere and we often took walks to the store and whatnot, he would follow me just about anywhere I went as long as I was walking, and if I would leave for the day he would always be waiting at the door when I came home, he always slept on my bed even during his daily naps, and when I was gone for a few days he would always be the first to greet me when I came home, it seemed he understood me more than anyone else in my life and I understood him just as well, he was 17 years old when he went senile and I had to have him put down, after that I didnt talk to anyone or go anywhere for about a month, I even turned down a big tournament I had qualified for that I had been looking forward to, and since then no pet ive had has ever seemed to replace him, and the only one who seemed to have come close to what he ment to me was my K9 partner I had for work, and after i lost him ive refused to get any more pets, at least for now, ive often thought about it but i figured it would never be the same

I had two dogs poisoned last year and I miss them a lot, but I cannot replace them at the moment as our yard is not big enough. My advice to you would be to go and get yourself another kitten as soon as possible. You will be surprised how much you'll love it.

My condolence to you. I know it must be a really tough time for you and your family. I have a pet too. His name is Det Det. He passed away quite recently too. I missed him so much. He has been a member of our family for more than 10 years. So i guessed it's his time to leave us. All we have now is our memories with him. And i'm sure, you too have great memories for you to smile at, whenever you miss him.

Sorry about your cat's passing. It probably will take some time to get over not having him/her around. I can understand a little because my dog passed away about 3 years ago and I still miss him. It's like part of my heart which has been reserved for him is now empty. I have not got another dog because I have moved from my aunt's place to my apartment which is much smaller so I don't think it will be appropriate to keep a dog in such a cramped place. Maybe one day, if I ever am able to afford a bigger place I may consider getting another dog. But, I will never forget my first dog.

It is always a sad situation when losing a pet, like a cat or a dog, or even any other animal that you've had as a pet. It is like losing a member of the family. People who never owned a dog or a cat would probably think, "oh, it's just an animal," but they usually don't really understand. When I was very young, my family owned a cat, but I was too young to remember what happened to it, as I only remember only small things here & there. I also lost two dogs to old age during my life time.

I'll be very sad when my cats die, I send my condolences to you at what must be a sad time. My cats are still young and I hope when they finally die it will be because of old age and not illness or an accident.

I have such experience too. In your case I understand that it was really sad and scare to have another similar blow. But we must realize that every creature has a limited life span so do us. I suggest you get another kitten and start a happy life with it.

every one has to pass out some day and the difference lies only with the fate so believe in fate it may decrease your problem of suffering about your lost cat.in the place of that cat you just place another cat and server it so that it will satify to some extent.

It's very sad to lose an animal when they die, it takes a while to recover, continue to love animals and get another as time goes by. God Bless and Good Luck.

It's hard to lose a pet that you love. Many years ago we lost a little dog. She was my dog in the sence that I fed her and she loved me. She would set beside me and beg to get into my lap. If My husband pretended to hiyt me she would growl at him to let him know that that was not acceptable. She was hit by a car. I still miss her. We have had several dogs sine then but none filled my heart like she did.

I had a cat that I had to put to sleep because she had a lot of medical issues. She was seventeen years old and the vet said that is a long time for a cat to live. She was a very sick cat and the vet said that he would not operate because in the shape she was in and her age she would just die on the operating table. She was my buddy and friend. I have a lot of good memories of our time together. That has happened a year ago but my mind still wanders to her and I feel sad sometimes when I think of her not being around now. Don't get me wrong I realize as old as she was and how sick she was the best thing that I did for her was put her to sleep.
