As my cat left this world my niece came in. I would like to think a little piece of him entered her and he will live on through her. I know it sounds weird and I don't really believe that happened, but it is a nice thought to hold onto anyway.

As weird as it sounds, that has sort of become my belief as well. In my life, when someone dies, someone else is born. It just reaffirms to me that all things are cyclical. This spring it was my kitty and my good friend had her baby early. Coincidence? I don't believe so.

So sad to hear about your kitty. Wish I was closer by to give you a hug.

My Julia Child Kitty is up there in heaven to welcome him.

Hey, big cat hugs, GB! We recently lost our 16 year old Rocky....
Always painful and sad, but you have memories and knowledge that
you gave them a great life for a long time.
Hugs!

I buy that they are somehow related. Why not ?

I'm sorry you lost your kitty GB, but I'm glad you were able to be there for him at the end. I have lost a lot of kitties (mostly old age), so I know how you feel. As far as being with him, I think it was important for both of you. A few years ago one of our cats was critically injured by a dog. It was so bad that I had no choice but to have him euthanized. As hard as it was for me to do, I stayed with him right to the end because I felt he was scared enough and shouldn't have to die with strangers. I wanted him to have someone who loved him with him.
