Goodbye Rocky

smaller rocky sun 022109

About two hours ago, we made the decision to let Rocky go. He was not responding to treatment for his kidneys and was very, very weak. We said goodbye, then the doctor came in and I held him as he went to sleep.

I can't believe this all happened so fast. When we got home and he wasn't meowing at the other side of the door, it hit me. Who will wake me up in the morning now?

Thank you, Rad, for being there and helping me through this.

So-so sorry for your loss. Our dog died 8 months ago and we were talking about her on our drive home today... still very much missing her. As fellow pet lovers, we both feel your pain and our hearts go out to you.

Oh, Sandy. It's so difficult to say goodbye to a little fuzzy friend. Kitties can be so sweet and loyal. As a friend once told me in a similar situation, while it can never be the same, it can (and will) be good once again. Let Rocky's memory salve your hurt.

Big hugs,

condolences on your loss.
the loss of a beloved pet is akin to the loss of a child.

Oh Sandy. So sorry for your loss. I lost my guy just over a year ago, and I know how painful it is. I'm sure you and Rad made his life a good one. Giving you a big hug, darlin'.

I'm very sorry for your loss. It's always hard to say good-bye, but you'll always be glad you were with him at the end.

Sandy, I am very sorry to read this. Pets are our children.

Thanks for all the kind thoughts. I am trying to make our other cat feel loved as best I can.
