    Listening to your story really helped me when I had to put my loving cat down.

    Kayli u think the same way i do. I have to put my 18 yr cat down. But I did give this cat a loving home, and took good care for her. I can't think what would have happened if I hadn't adopted her.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I watched because my pet skunk Isis passed away Saturday night after 7 1/2 beautiful years together. I am absolutely crushed and heartbroken. This loss is harder by far than any human I lost. She was my world and I was hers. The moment I met her was instant love. She may have thought she was the lucky one but it was me who was lucky. Tomorrow is her goodbye ceremony and cremation and I'm not sure how I'm gonna make it through it. The one thing I can say is she is the only thing in my life that I cherished every single moment.

    @Kaylie Morbid.
    Hi Kaylie, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I lost my brother and Sister cats on Sept 25th and Dec 12th of last year. I was particularly close to the girl cat, she comforted me through some dark times. My grief over the last month has been so over powering, I miss my cats so much. I know euthanasia is the kindest thing to do for our loved ones when they are seriously ill, but taking them to the vets that last time just breaks me. I hope in time we can remember the deep love we shared with our cats and the end bit goes deep to the back of our minds.

    I'm so sorry. 🙁 I've had to put many animals to sleep over my life, and it never gets any easier. It's so unfair that our lives are so much longer. Please take care.

    Hi Kaylie. I understand and I'm up and down with my own feelings over the loss of my kitty a few months ago. I get the guilt, too. My kitty was 21 years old. Even though her quality of life was fleeting, I still felt that I could have done more and had one more day. It sucks.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I know that the pain from losing someone close to you never really goes away, but it's my hope that it at least becomes easier to deal with. Sending you love and positive vibes ♥

    My heart goes out to you so much. My cat Lily passed away a few years back. She was my baby, and someone who taught me how to be compassionate to animals. She was 18 when she went, and due to the bad state she was in, I refused to let her go on in pain for my sake. I loved that cat, and she'll always have a place in my heart forever.

    I do admit I struggle with some "What if" thoughts. I was living at my boyfriend's at the time, and my mom would be the one who gave me updates about Lily. I knew she was losing weight, but I didn't know how bad she was till my brother called me and explained fully how bad off she was. So I do have the thought of "What if I was living at my mom's during that time? Could I have caught whatever caused her health to decline early enough to help her?" But I know that's wishful thinking. Even if I had all the money in the world, I refused to let her suffer for my sake.

    Other thing I do struggle big time with is how my cat's last moments were. I spent some time with her before we went to the vet, but she was so out of it that I don't even think she knew what was going on. I chose to not stay for the moment they put her down, based on my boyfriend's advice. He didn't think I could handle her passing in front of me. I held her, cried, took off her collar, said "Goodbye Lily" and handed her over to the vet, who took her to another room. Part of me wonders if her spirit or soul may have regretted me for doing that, or if it could have been seen as selfish that I didn't want to witness her going. Part of me wishes I stayed with her, but another part of me knows that my cat was exhibiting signs of a stroke, so she may have not even been aware of me being there.

    I knew her passing would be soon due to her advanced age, but still, handing her over to the vet was one of the hardest things I had to do in my whole life. But I know she had a good long life, and she loved me lots, as I did. Just wish I didn't have these "what if" emotions, because I know in the end that my questions will never be answered to them, and all I can do is move on. I miss her thought, and still get teary when I think back on her.

    Gammy sounds like a sweet cat, and I'm sure wherever he is, he's still loving you and grateful that you were his human. I wish you well through this hard time of grieving, for I know your pain well.

    i started crying as soon as you got teary.
    i lost my baby kitty in september. i had to leave her at my moms home when i moved out, she was too old to make the travel i was about to do and i know she wouldn't have made it if i did drag her along, but i still feel regret not being with her until the very end. she was my everything and now i have to recollect what i thought was my world and my life with out her. its tough.

    2014 we had to put down my grandparents dog Balu. I grew up with him, me being 3 when he came to us. He too, got very ill, puked blood and had bloody diarrhea… Probably cancer. There was nothing we could do for him. His quality of life wasn't the best before that either, he wasn't able to get his hind legs high enough so he basically dragged his paws behind until they were bloody… It was time, but it still hurt. The worst thing was that I wasn't strong enough to be by his side to the end… I wasn't there when he passed. Still though, he sometimes visits me in my dreams every now and then. ❤️ Now I still have my cat Flocky, she's 12 by now and I hope she stays with me for some more years. She's my soul healer. I have depression and anxiety disorder as well as social phobia and she's just my everything. She chose me from a feral life, and I think that's what makes our bond so special. ❤️

    So sorry for your loss. I know exactly what you mean about the feeling that you always have your cat no matter what happens with the people in your life. Your cat is there and loves you unconditionally and that bond is so strong. Thinking of you. Thanks for letting us in.

  12. Audrixia Lee

    Thank you for putting the hotline number in the description. My kitties, Jynx, Hex, and Ash wish you the best! I unfortunately have been through the same thing. I had my best friend when I had none, Oreo. He was poisoned by a neighbor. Inside, I was crushed and had no support. And I eventually hurt myself. Thank you again for the hotline. If you need to message me, please do!

  14. Sapphira22

    I'm sorry for your loss. I still sometimes mourn my first baby boy cat, Flash. He lived a short life but I loved him with all my heart. May you rest in peace, Gammy. I hope you and Gammy will meet again in another life.

  15. bianca kittybear

    R.I.P. Gammy. 🙁

  17. Mindy

    thanks for sharing your story, i completely feel everything you've said… i hope you get through it well, rarely i hear people talk about their pets the way you do, especially cats because of some stigmas about them. i owe so much to my cat and i feel like shes a large reason i can get through my own depression and anxiety. just hearing all you've said, they're lucky to have had you. thank you and sorry for your loss♡

    I totally can relate and really needed to see this video. I lost Skippy last year and on Halloween made it 1 year. He passed away in such a sad manner that it still hurts to remember it. His heart and kidneys shut down and happened so quick I couldn't believe it.

    I'm very sorry for your loss. I really appreciate how open you are in this video.

    Sorry for your loss, luv. <3
