Oh Barbara, what a terrible experience for you. I am so sorry. But he came to you for help, knowing that you would do the right thing for him and you did. I know it was so hard - about ten years ago, two roving dogs killed my beloved cat Charles. He lived for about 10 minutes...this is still a traumatic memory for me. Animal Control came and took the dogs and they were eventually euthanized. I know that you have a tender heart, and Mr. Frodo will be there in your heart always. I could tell from his pictures that he was a very special guy.

Saludos, Karen

so sorry and sad for you..It's been just about a year now that I had to put Maggie down..Everytime I look up at her ashes, I cry..she was my shadow..and was so in tune with me, she knew if i were happy or sad..Then would act accordingly..Cry Barb and let it wash away some of the pain..be glad you gave kitty the good life he had..Many of the world little pals are not so lucky..Hopefully one day soon one of these poor souls will glance your way and snap love will bloom for both of you then he/she qill become you pal..nothing gives back love as a furry pal..hugs to you and James and prayers and eternal happy rest to your furry baby.

It's bad enough when you know it's going to happen soon - when your cat is old and/or ill and the day is near. Hardest thing I've ever had to do.

But when it happens suddenly like that, Barb, it must knock the breath out of you.

I'm so sorry about your little sweetheart.

I'm so glad we got to see Mr. Frodo and just remember - that's the way he is now. I wish I could just wrap my arms around you. It's such a difficult thing to do and I'm sorry you had to do it alone. Mr. Frodo will forever be grateful you took such good care of him.

Thanks. I must say, I was surprised how peaceful it was. He literally just went to sleep and then it was over. About 10 seconds. I hope I never have to go through that again, but I'm glad I stayed--I would have felt like I had abandoned my baby if I had left.

so hard to lose them and doublely hard to be with them. but i do feel we owe them that so they aren't so scared by all the stranges sights and smells. it took my a really long time to get over putting my fourteen year old cat to sleep. cry all you want barb and don't be the least embrassed about it.

I am so sorry to hear about this Barb, it is hard enough when you are preparing yourself for it, doubly hard when it is so sudden and unexpected.
I hope they rein that dog in, sounds like it has a taste for blood and if so it will soon be a danger to more than cats and chickens :(
