Default My kitty is losing the horizon

Gary mentioned that you know it's time when your dog loses the horizon. My cat who has been with me for 20+ years is not doing well today. She has pretty much lost the horizon.

Please no, " I hate cat" type comments

Mike, that's such a wrenching experience. My heart goes out to you.

I wrote up "Farewell to a friend - Gus the cat" when we lost our old tabby back in 2000. I think it's the only time I've cried since I met my wife 14 years ago.

Tough stuff indeed...My dog passed away almost 4 years ago now and I'm still dog-less to this day. My daughters have a dog now, but it ain't the same

I think it is harder if you have to watch them progressively get worse...not suffering, just getting worse. Tears your heart out when you remember how vibrant they were in there younger years.
