Default Re: Sad, sad, sad.....:(

One day I took my children to a park for the day. They found a box with three kittens in it. Two were past help, but the third was a pretty, little, long haired gray boy that made it and was a welcome addition to our family. We named him Smokey. He lived to be 22 years old. Then he began to just slow down and waste away. Once it started, it happened so fast. My husband was out of town and I had to make that decision and take him in myself. I know how you feel. I cried for days. I told everyone that I would never have an other cat. It hurt way too much. Two years later my daughter gave us Radar for Christmas. He settled into my heart and I love him very much. Still, I think of Smokey and miss him so. I am so sorry for your loss. This is such a hard thing and such a loving decision to make. Thinking of you, Take care, Rose
