    I am very sorry to hear. That is an amazing run. I wish my cat had made it to 14!

    It's always terrible seeing a loyal friend go, I'm sure you gave it a wonderful house for all its life!

    I'm terribly sorry for your loss. I know how you feel. I remember when my first cat I had died. I got her as a kitten when I was a small kid and she passed away 6 years ago on Dec 25th.

    RIP.

    I've had a good few years recognizing all your posts by that kitty. Sounds like he/she? had a good run. My two old ladies are getting old as well... time acts quicker on our pets than on our friends and family, sometimes...

    My condolences. I've certainly been where you are, more times than I care to recall.

    Pets are an awesome responsibility, and it is almost inevitable that they will leave this life before us; one of the sad facts of pet ownership. But the years of joyous companionship they brought will linger in your memory forever, something death cannot take from you. Time does not heal all wounds, as much as some would have us believe. But the treasured memories of time spent with companions, be they our own species or otherwise, can heal most any injury of spirit.

    I came home from work physically and emotionally drained, more than normal. Lynn said she wanted to talk to me about something... but not now... tomorrow. I hate when she does that! I'm like, what did I do wrong now? She said it's actually potentially good news. I could use some good news right now! This morning she told me about a potential opportunity to obtain a Maine Coon kitten, something we have always wanted. They are normally >$200 apiece and we don't have that at our disposal. She was looking through the classifieds and found an ad for 2 kittens, posted in December. She inquired about that and one kitten has been given away. The second one, we think, is still up for grabs. She is waiting to hear back. Do I dare get my hopes up?
