    Family Cat Of 17+ Years Put Down

    The cat in my profile picture is no longer. We've been watching Starlight deteriorate over the last few months and when it was apparent that she could no longer eat or use her box and wasn't able to walk across the kitchen floor, it was time.

    I'm so sorry. Starlight seems that he has lived a long, happy life.

    Sorry to hear this. You may want to pick up a copy of "Paw Tracks in the Moonlight" by Denis O'Connor, the true stories of a man and his Maine Coon cat that he rescued as a kitten in a snowstorm. Very moving.

    on one hand it makes you sad but damn that is a great run for a cat (esp if she was an outdoor cat). I lost a cat two years ago that was only 4 years of age and he had so much life left to live. Tragically, he was struck by a car

    Not trying to jack your thread but just glad to hear she had so much time on this earth

    Sorry for your loss Jim.I have two cats (indoors) and I would hate to see them go.They are part of the family,just as Starlight was a part of yours.
