..When a cat you've had for 17 years, that was born, literally in your LAP, has to be put to sleep because of fluid around his heart.

I've been crying like a BABY all day long. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

Oh dear. I am so sorry.
I can certainly understand. Losing my sweet dog this November has been the hardest thing for us to endure I can't imagine ever feeling right again. I still cry every single day.
I can imagine the lovely connection you had to your sweet cat. I am so sorry.

I'm so sorry to hear about your cat. I lost my kitty, also 17 yrs old in 1996, which I bottle-fed with a doll bottle. Her mother refused to feed her (sole survivor) after she'd lost 5 other kittens from the same litter.

I'm so sorry. I completely understand your pain - I still grieve my cats who died 9 and 10 years ago, respectively, and treat my current cat like my third baby. It's so painful that their lifespans are so much shorter than ours.
