Oh, Natalie, I am SO sorry to read this!

My heart goes out to you in your loss. No cat could have had a better Human CatMom than you. I know you were right that it was time.

Kwali and Kumbi from the Bridge, and Camellia and I from lowly Earth, send our deepest and warmest condolences.

Go forth in great peace, Kitty Gus!

Natalie sorry fro your loss.

It is interesting at times how circumstances here parallel each other

On wednesday 530pm, My 13 yr old long haired torty "Quincy Jones Jefferson"
Went to sleep in my arms at my vets, all the same issues, by Wednesday she was full of fluid as well confirmed by Ultrasound. Her energy was gone, that Melodic meow gone, I too knew it was time.

Just way too sad to post about it, didn't want to upset Ed, they grew up together and just loved each other to pieces.

I loved her dearly, she was a rescue, found under some stairs and had many psycological going ons until she learned to trust, hence the reason she had her own room for the past 13 yrs- can't bear to go in just now and clean it out door closed
A very shy and very sweet girl, I will post her pic later
I always said that she was the sweetest cat I know

Natalie,

I'm so sorry for your loss. But Kitty Gus is thankful that he had you to take care of him and notice the spark was gone from his eyes.

Hugs,
Bonnie and Angel Criss

Hi Natalie - I've been afraid to ask about Gus lately knowing that you were probably wrestling with "that question" again.

It's a hard road we have to take when we have pets that we outlive. I've often run those moments through my brain requestioning my decisions. Having said this, I will also say what I told you before....if I could pick someone to be at my bedside answering for me, you'd be one of the people I would choose.

You are so diligent and focused in your care for Chris, Gus and Jack (these are three I know of) that they couldn't possibly have had a better caretaker - or one more knowledgable.

Still, I know you miss him, and my heart goes out to you. But Gus had a very good life with you! What more can we ask?

JJ,

I'm so sorry to learn of Quincy's passing... Torties are special. Our tortie Winky passed away about five years ago under very similar circumstances. That was sweet that Quincy had her own room and extra special that, after hard times, she found a home where she was deeply loved.

Sharing your sadness,

Natalie
