Saying goodbye to a companion
« on: February 03, 2021, 09:46:13 am »
It's just a cat. A stray, that my son and "daughter" brought home about 15 years ago.
When we moved to AZ nearly 3 years ago, the cat remained with another son that didn't move with us.
He is the one with her at the end. She has cancer.
Goodbye Joey Socks, be strong Daniel.

    Been there. Done that... many times. I don't envy your son and "daughter".

    My sympathies for the loss of your family member.

    patkelly4370, I offer my condolences to you and your family on the loss of your family member. Folks just don't realize how deeply those little fur people weave themselves into our lives, and often neither do we until their loss is thrust upon us. When I move to AZ a couple of years ago, I brought my 21 year old cat. We knew she was on her way out, but I sure wasn't going to leave her behind. She lasted about a month or so, and seemed to like it here. I would often find her sleeping on the patio. Then, one day I heard her scream, and ran outside. She had suffered a stroke, and mercifully, went very quickly. Like you, I have lost too many dog and cat companions, and each leaves a hole that takes part of us with them. Stay safe on the road, sir, and I pray you get through your loss quickly. (Went through your area today, and AZ HP was really working it; say 5 patrol units working the road with a helicopter - and they were busy.)

    Sorry for your loss.

    Sometimes losing a pet is worse than losing a human family member. Maybe that's just me because most of my extended family is garbage people but we loved our pets. Been there.

    15 years is truly a good run. Again, sorry to hear it.
