    My story is eerily similar. We had a cat, Woodie, who made it to 19. We took him in as a kitten when my wife and I weren't even married yet, just 2 college kids shacking up. He lived through our marriage, moving to our first house, having our human kid, and every up and down in between. One day he just couldn't walk anymore, and it was time. That cat had been there from the beginning of my adult life.

    I get it. I get it.

    Sorry for your loss Thom, prayer of comfort sent up for you. Pets are truly family and companions just like humans; they are sorely missed and forever hold a special place in the heart with fond memories. Hang in there my friend.

    You've lost a lot. It's okay to have feelings about it. I'm sorry for the losses you've experienced in your lifetime.

    With me, each loss seems brings back all of the losses. It can be rough for a while, but it also helps me to remember those who have paved my way.

    We accept your thanks. We are happy we can give you a little support.

    No shame in grieving for someone we've loved and lost.

    Thom, I've realized that you are a poet. And this is a very sad poem. I'm right there, almost with you, our Sunny is wasting away at age 18.25 and not much hope. Blessings.

    Thom,
    I understand exactly how you feel, over the last few years we have lost multiple family and friends, but everyday I still say hi to our little frenchie's picture, and think of the joy she brought us. I also like to think we made her life special too. keep strong!

    I'm new here but I feel for you and am sorry for your loss.

    I just lost my 10 year old cat earlier this month and had an epic meltdown. I cried so long and hard that I gave myself a 2 day migraine. I had my sweet boy from the day he was born. He got me through 2 years of watching my husband fighting cancer and the five years that he has been gone. I still have those moments where I just have to shed a few more tears because that sweet, bossy, cuddly boy is gone.

    So never apologize for feeling your loss in whatever way you need to. Just remeber that you have a lot of people who understand completely what you are going through and would never judge.
