Sad news about a "family member"

Sad news - wife and I had to take my cat to the vet yesterday to have her put down. She has been with me for the 13 years of her life, has moved numerous times, endured living with other cats, etc. No matter what was going on in my life - bad relationships, job loss, flat broke, etc. - she was always there when I came home to cheer me up.

Unfortunately, she ended up with a tumor in her jaw that really caused her some problems with eating. Her mind was still in the game - she was still running through the house and purring when my wife or I came in the room. Unfortunately, the tumor was worsening and her quality of life was going to suffer dramically. It was a very tough decision and an emotional day, but in the end, it was the best option for her. Rest in peace, Misty.

Sorry to hear it- our pets are family members too.
Sounds like she had a good life with you.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the AMERICAN PEOPLE" TR

Thanks guys. Yeah, she certainly did have a good life - as spoiled as a cat can get. I couldn't leave the house in the morning until she had a cat treats - a morning ritual for her. I miss her. Thanks for the warm thoughts.

Sorry to hear bro. I HATE losing pets.

Heal up and get a new kitty!




For every species of beasts and birds, of reptiles and creatures of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by the human race. But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil full of deadly poison.

Great place to post pictures and memories.
We have several cats also, and each one is like a family member.

Some days will stay a thousand years, some pass like the flash of a spark.
