I am so sad........I had to have my little kitty Alley put down today due to kidney failure. She was 13 years old and my baby. Many of you know how special she was to me...... My heart is broken.

Myrna,

My heart goes out to you. I feel your pain and I understand. I had to have my baby (black siamese cat) put to sleep after 23 years. It\'s like losing a child.

Please give yourself a hug from me....loosing such a major part of the family is just heart rendering. Over the years we too have had them come and go, and each one has their special moments that make them stand out and in our hearts forever.

I am so sorry for your loss. Having to put your friend down is so very hard. I lost poor old Maude in December 2005 (21 yo) and Barney in June 2006 (20 yo) both due to kidney failure.

My vet told me that if cancer doesn\'t get them then their little kidneys give out.

You did the right thing. At some point we are keeping them around for us and not for their best interest no matter how badly we want to keep them.

My thoughts are with you.

Oh no! This is awful news, Myrna!

I remember your beautiful calico kitty Alley very well when I visited you last November. She was so adorable and cute. She was definitely a mama\'s girl! It was obvious to me that Alley was very loved and you always turned into doting mom/ blob of goo, and lovey dovey and all sweet on her whenever she was nearby. :) Lucky kitty she was to have you for her mom and she lived such a wonderful life in a beautiful home filled with so much love from you and Earl. Such a lucky kitty Alley is.

So, I know how broken hearted you must feel right now, and that you are missing her so much. But after while, you can sit back and feel glad instead of sad because you can remember her and know that her many years were filled with love and excellent care. That\'s all she ever wanted: to be loved and fed and cared for (oh yeah, and extremely spoiled, too) :) She got that and more.

Lots of love & hugs,

Shana

(((Hugs))) to you, Myrna. I\'ve had two beloved dogs put down. One from kidney failure and one from cancer. I understand how you must feel right now.

Warm hugs - it is so hard and sad to lose one of our little "children". I have had to put 3 dogs down over the years and my heart breaks each time. Our babies are so sweet and so precious..............the light of our lives. My newest baby is 3 1/2 and I have my 4th shadow. How lucky I am to love each of my babies the same and differently. My heart is with you as you morn...........Always cherish the time you had................
