    Re: For animal lovers

    I'm so sorry, AJane. It's tough to feel so helpless and it's especially hard when the animal is relatively young. I have no wisdom for you on the subject. Just trust yourself to know when it's time to keep trying to find a solution and when it's time to let go.

    Re: the feral cat. We had a tom cat (okay, we fed a tom cat - I don't think you ever actually OWN a tom) years ago and he'd show up with the most appalling abscesses and we'd think, "Well, that's it. NO way he can survive this" but he did. It's amazing what their little immune systems can withstand. That cat lived for maybe 15 years, I think. No one could believe it. Oldest tom ever.

    For animal lovers

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone. He has now crossed over the Rainbow Bridge & is with the "big sister" we lost last year. My daughters were courageous enough to stay in the room when we said goodbye, so his whole family was with him. His suffering is over.

    AJane - You and your family has done the most SELFLESS thing we can do for our furry ones. Take the time to grieve, cry, be mad, over time you will begin to smile a little, then laugh when you think of something he did that amused you. There will be times when you stop and cry, but then smile again. The hurt never really goes away but the edges soften a bit over time but that hole is still in your life even so, but we go on. Someday we will be reunited at the bridge.

    I'm so sorry AJane. Losing a pet is one of the worst things to suffer through, I think. Not a lot tops it, except for people, of course.
