Just put my cat to sleep.



I grew up with her and she passed away at the age of 18.

Why do men look so unattractive when we cry?

Awwww, baybuh, so sorry to hear that. I know how sorrowful it is to watch a loved one die. ((VEGA HUGS))

Men are not unattractive when crying. Showing emotion is part of being human, and part of grieving.

There is nothing wrong with a man crying.

So sorry to hear about your friend.

I am so sorry for your loss. I recently lost the cat I grew up with, too. It's hard losing a member of the family; there's no shame in crying.

(((hugs)))

Have you heard the story of the Rainbow Bridge?

Quote:

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.

Sorry to hear it, Chad. My oldest cats just turned 16, and I dread the arrival of that day. I don't think I'll take it well.

I'm so sorry for your loss! I lost a much-adored dog about a year ago and I still miss him. It's amazing how they become part of your life.

I'm very, very sorry. I bawled for hours when we put DC to sleep. And on and off for a few days after. It'll be the same one of these days when Sable goes. Cry on, you have permission. The animals that own us become such a major part of our lives.
