My cat passed away

We found him this morning, under the couch. Last night we could not find him anywhere which has never happened before. He was an indoor cat and was always in sight. I knew something was wrong right away. We did eventually find him, but I could tell he was not well. He was hardly moving and not very responsive. The kids could tell something was up too.

He passed away late last night. I was able to spend the last few hours with him right next to me. When the end came he slowly made it down onto the floor and went under the couch. He let out a few soft cries and then was gone. I am going to miss him! He was 15 which is a great amount of time to have a cat. I am just happy he is not in any pain now.

Oh, GB, I'm so sorry. I know how it feels to lose one of our "fur family." Hugs to you and your family. I know you all had a good life together.

GB, I'm so sorry. I'm glad you got to be together at the end. I lost my Tuxedo this spring and I still have a hole in my heart shaped like him. A big hug to you my dear friend.

I just wish I was close enough to deliver it in person.

Go hug that new niece of yours, it will let a little joy shine through the sadness.
