Default My beloved cat passed away today

My beloved cat of 17+ years passed away early this morning between 1-5am His name was LittleOne AKA Fuzz.
He was one of my fur babies and a loyal friend. He had kidney failure, the Vet told me he had out a year to live. I think he almost made it to two years.

I laid next to him until about 1am, petted him and told him I loved him.
I know he's in a better place, but I'm numb and super sad. I guess I'm grieving. I need to take him to the pet hospital to get him cremated tomorrow. I just can't do it today.

And to top it off I woke up with a sore throat....caught a bug.

Any words of encouragement would be very appreciated.

Thanks for reading
-Maria

Maria, your pain comes through in your post about your beloved kitty. I am so sorry. Although we know our pets will be with us for a limited time, we are never ready to lose them.

Please try to find some comfort in knowing that he was so loved by you for all of his life. That is a true blessing that many little creatures never have.

I am a grandma now, and have always loved cats. They were all loved by our family, but sometimes there are those special ones that really get into our hearts. Sounds like LittleOne AKA Fuzz was such a cat.

My "best kitty ever" was a beautiful sweet natured Birman named Boris. He also lived to be 17.

I will be thinking of you and LittleOne AKA Fuzz in the coming days.

Annette

I am so, so sorry about Fuzz. I know how heartbreaking this is and I am sending you hugs and prayers.

I hope you can welcome another furry friend into your heart someday. Not to replace, but to heal your broken heart.

Annette, thank you so much for your caring words. Only pet owner can truly understand what I'm feeling. LittleOne was very special for sure! We had a special bond that only he and I shared and that will live in my heart always.

Maria, your post made me think about my kitty Boris. I went to an old scrapbooking forum I used to post on, and copied this page that I made for him:

It's not a very good image, but I wanted to share it with you.

xoxoAnnette

The pic on the bottom was taken on Christmas, I think 2006. You can see all the wrapping paper. He always wanted to be in the middle of everything!

I'm just now seeing this. I'm so sorry for your loss. I, too, am an animal lover (with a particular weakness for cats!). I hope you're feeling better. I'm glad you were with Fuzz in his final moments. I'm sure he knew just how loved he was.

Hi Maria,

I just saw your post and I'm so very sorry to hear about your precious Fuzz. I know how difficult it can be to lose a pet. I also adore cats and have one that is 11 years old. You are in my thoughts and prayers. You will always have those special moments with LittleOne to get you through this tough time.

If you need a friend I am here for you.

My heart is sad for you. I said good-bye to my beloved puppy dog earlier this year. A pet becomes a part of our families and so very dear to our hearts. I understand your saddness. You are not alone. It's so good that you reached out for comfort. God bless you and comfort you in this difficult time. As others said, when you are ready, you can bring in a new kitty into your life. You can give the new one all your love and care you gave to Fuzz. In his memory.
