Dear BuckyT,
I too am so sorry for your loss and my prayers are with you and your wife and son. By now (your time) you have probably already told your son and my heart goes out to both of you. But with a good Dad like you, I know he will get through this, just like you got your beloved cat through the last days of her life.

I remember how heartbroken I was when pets I had as a child died. If it's any comfort, I can see now that their deaths helped to understand the basics of mortality very early on in the piece - and gave me skills to cope with other deaths later in life.

Will be thinking of your wee lad.

Oh, bucky, sorry to hear your news. Buck and I can understand. We've gone through a similar thing with one of our kitties. Let the tears flow and make sure there are plenty of hugs all around. This, too, shall pass. Your kitty knew you loved her.

BT - I am sorry to hear about your loss. When my favorite cat died, her last day or so, she did everything she had always liked, sat on my lap and purred, layed in the sun in the flower bed. Spent a few more hours with us and then literally fell over dead.

I misser, as I am sure that you do. You did the right thing and I know it is hard.
