Went to give Fern her breakfast the other morning and she was stone-dead. Like, cartoonishly so, head lolled to the side. I guess I shouldn't be surprised--she WAS an 18-year-old cat--but, y'know. Damn.

At least she seemed to have a nice last week. I brushed her and she liked that, and the spring days were making her happy. And she died in her bed. So hopefully she went peacefully. I worry that I didn't give her a nice enough life--I did relegate her to the garage because she hated the Itty Bitty Kitty Committee, and also because she had a tendency to miss the litterbox. But I made a lovely little canopy bed for her, and she had a space heater, and good food, and I snuggled her when I could. But. You always ask yourself those questions.

But I think it was okay.

Stupid cat.

Many sympathies. Losing a pet is always hard.

I'm sorry. It's never easy, even when you know it's coming.

I'm so sorry! It always hurts when a companion animal dies, especially one who you've been with so long.

One always does, no matter what, and I don't think it's ever easy when they go. I'm sorry.

My condolences. The fact that you're worrying if you gave her a nice enough life, though, means that you're a good pet owner and did right by her :) You definitely gave her plenty of love and care and affection, which I'm sure she appreciated and reciprocated.

Awww. Even when it is like that, as good an end as anyone could want, it's hard for those of us left behind. *hugs*
