Kitty was 18 and we just had to make the decision to let her go peacefully back in August. It was so hard. You are a great mommy, cj, you will know. For now, enjoy your moments. xoxoxoxo
What a great life he has had... which other cat in North America has had a castle designed for him and has posted on this board all in the same weekend!

and he stays primarily in one place, on a blanket in front of a heat duct. he is up and about at snack times and meal times, but not much.
i've known for a while logically that yes, bj is going to either die or have to be put down soon. i had my first emotional realization that the time is very near tonight when i had to help him up and when kevin massaged his hips later, to help them get going again after sitting. which he does very strangely now. i don't think he's in pain, he's not crying or flinching when he's touched. he still purrs when you touch him.

i still can barely think of the day and the following days. i don't want to because it is so raw. so many emotions, and guilt over the past few years -- i was so allergic to him after i had jeremy that i could barely touch him, and there were times when i had to gate our room so he wouldn't sleep on our bed. *sigh*
we still see him everywhere -- everything has the capability of looking like beej, a sweater left on the couch, or a pillow on the floor in front of the heater (jeremy leaves them there a lot, he sits there like bj did.) and we still hear him, a creak on the stairs that sounds like him walking down them. all of my neural pathways in this house involve him.
i watched him walk into our living room at the time of his death.
gah. i miss him. so much that if i think of it too closely i can't breathe.

I now have two cats - 14 yo and 8 yo. Delia, the oldest, is Siamese and pretty healthy, but showing her age. It is going to be a horrible day when she eventually passes. The younger cat, Cassady, is a very needy cat and loves her so much, as do I. I can't imagine them both not piling on me at every opportunity.
