@ImaStarr: awww I am so sorry to hear this. I am in near tears reading your post.
I commend you for being such dedicated cat owners. Not everyone is caring enough to cater to their pets’ unique medical needs. I am a huge cat lover and can only imagine how you guys feel to lose your pet. I hope things go well for your other kitty moving into the future! Give him a hug for me!

I am so sorry for your loss. You gave him a great home and loved him, and that’s all he needed. You gave him 8 years of love!

@ImaStarr: I’m all teary just from looking at his sweet face. No one can put into words how hard it is to lose a pet. They ARE your family. Sending you a very big virtual hug!
The next coming days will be veryyy tough but it already seems you are reflecting on all the memories and joy he has brought you in those short 8 years. Give extra lovings to that other sweet baby, sometimes they take it even harder 🙁

Oh I’m so sorry… that must’ve been horrible. Especially since you weren’t expecting it. We just had out girl put down less than a week ago, so i know all too well the pain you’re going through. Losing our fur babies is so hard… They are so much more than pets, they are family. So far, our other cats haven’t really seemed to notice… But the one we had put down we very old and often isolated herself anyways.
Hopefully, when things have settled and you’ve had time to grieve, you’ll be able to find a new friend for your other baby so she isn’t alone.
thoughts are with you

What a sweet, sweet cat. So sorry for your loss. I was such a wreck when my cat passed… had her since she was 6 weeks old. This, too, shall pass.

Just an update.
Killian’s vet called today (she was out for a week) to give her condolences. She was just as shocked as we were. I guess that’s good, I had started to wonder if we were just in denial about how sick he was. She also suspects it was a heart attack or something similar.
Right now we’re still grieving, we have discussed adopting another cat in the near future but aren’t ready yet. We are willing to adopt a diabetic cat since we know how to handle it and I imagine it’s hard for them to find homes.
It’s really weird not having him around. Every morning I take the dogs out and then go to the fridge to grab his syringe. It’s just automatic. Then I stand in front of the refridgerator staring trying to remember why I opened it.
Our other Kitty is doing better than I ever thought she would. She’s hyper affectionate and has looked for him a little bit, but other than that she’s doing well.
DH is still really struggling 🙁
Thank you all for your thoughtful words. I showed DH and he really appreciated it too 🙂

I’m so sorry for your loss 🙁 No matter when pets go it is always too soon. At least he got to pass as we always hope our pets do – quickly, without fear or pain, and in the comfort of their homes/kingdoms, with loved ones close by.
If you are ready for another set of pawprints in your house, please considering welcoming an adult special-needs cat. We went in and asked for the cat who had been at the shelter the longest (in the case of our 2nd cat, the 1st cat picked him, but he had also been one of the longest-term residents in the shelter). Both of them are the best kitties ever, and most special needs cats just need special food or medicine or gentler handling. And we found that both our cats had amazingly loving personalities that were just masked by the stress of being in a shelter environment.
