Jezzer
She was 16 and had a good life.
Still though, I'm sad.

She died in my husbands arms.

@chai2,
Oh Chai...that makes me sad. 16 is a grand old age for a kitty. Thoughts are with you.

@mismi,
we sign on to a bittersweet responsibility when we share our lives with those whose lives are briefer than our own.

Im sad for you and happy that you will have some whacky memories of your kitty cats life tracks as they walked all over your heart.

Condolences from the "staff" of our own kitty bosses.

Oh Chai, I'm sad to hear this. No matter how old they are, how ill, or what the circumstances, it's always hard to let them go.

Tell us a story about Jezzer.

I am so sorry for your loss. It's always such a heart wrenching ordeal when
our four legged babies pass on. Our old dog died last month and we're still
mourning. It just never gets any better, no matter how many pets we have.
Yet, we always take new ones in and the cycle begins again.

Jezzibel was like a French upstairs maid, purely decorative.

She was dumber than a box of rocks, but adorable, with tilted eyes, and fluffy gray fur.

She liked to eat angel hair pasta with red sauce, but only if you held up one strand at a time for her to eat sideways. She loved Boston Market chicken.

She enjoyed thinking about sunsets and long walks on the beach, and would have done that if there was a beach inside the house. If the door was ever open, she would look outside with an expression that said "ewwwwww"

She liked to catch buzzer bugs that occassionally got in the house.

@kuvasz,
I don't have to believe anything in my heart.

I know she was treated like the princess she was, every day of her life.

jesus, we lived with her litterbox in the middle of the dining room for the last 2 years or more, because that's where she decided she wanted to pee.

no arguments from us

@chai2,
I am sorry for your loss. I know what it is like to lose a loving companion. My dog, Kelsey, died a couple of months ago at the age of 13.

We are still blessed with having our cat who is now 21 years old. We expect that she will not live much beyond this. She too has had a good life and we will miss her as we miss Kelsey.

@chai2,
Sorry to hear of the death of one of your cats. You always had good stories to tell about them. It's tough.

How are you other 2 cats reacting to this?

Oh definately....she was "daddy's girl"

Intrepid...my Lulu was 21 when she died. I'd had her since she could sit in the palm of my hand.

Reyn....we put her on the floor so roland and otis could see. roland took one look, did that cat "turn his head away" thing, and moved a few feet away, but sat nearby for a minute or 2, then resumed his business.

otis, who's quite young, was more curious. He walked up, did a sniff here and there, stared for a few seconds, then left too.

Even though she was old, and kept to herself a lot, she was always there in the front of the house, a presence.

I said later on that night "The house feels empty"

Ah well, so it goes.

Thanks everyone. I appreciate your sentiments.

@roger,
All of my children are furry and never learned to walk on two legs.

I also had my pet dog die in my arms. We had her put to sleep.She suffered from seizures and in the end had a stroke.

My condolences.

Sad
