We’ll miss you Maggie


Maggie in Mamma cat mode (Oscar is laying across her back but he’s so black he barely shows up, only his little white feet!)

Our three “girls” last Christmas: Mischief, Maggie and Molly.
(Maggie’s the upper middle kitty)

Maggie was euthanized this afternoon. I was with her and she went peacefully. We lucked out in getting our favorite vet who handled it all so thoughtfully. It’s such a hard thing to do, but it was even harder to see her suffering. We hope she’s feeling better now, on a catnip cloud in the sky.

Man, this has been one shitty week.

    Damn-I have lost two pups in the last few months so I know how shitty it is. I had to be there too-I was surprised when my wonderful vet told me many people drop off and leave..guess that is the way they handle it best but I had to be there talking to them. I still have 2 kitties that are kinda wondering where their buddies are but are being lavished with attention from all of us (and I think kinda liking it 😉

    Oh Beagle, I am so sorry for your loss. It is so hard to watch our animals suffer and it is so hard to make the decision to put them to sleep. I hope you are doing ok. I will be thinking of you.

    Doing the right thing isn’t easy sometimes. She was a beautiful girl and you were lucky to have each other.

    She looks like she was a fabulous cat. I think she’s very lucky to have found y’all, and vice verse. I’m so sorry for your loss. Losing a pet is such a hard thing, even when you know she was suffering.

    I am so, so sorry about Maggie. I went through the exact same thing with my 21 (yes, you read that right, 21) year old cat just after Christmas 9 years ago. It’s heartbreaking, but you did the right thing. ((Hugs))

    I’m so very sorry for your loss of Maggie. She was a beautiful kitty.

    I know it’s such a hard decision to make even though we know it’s more important that our decisions benefit our beloved furballs than us. Putting my two renal failure kitties to sleep were two of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do.

    You’re in my thoughts.

    Will blogger allow me to comment today? It has been very tempermental lately.

    I’m so sorry last week was so utterly horrible. I’m hoping you are feeling slightly better this week, although it often sucks the life out of you for a while.

    I’ve been thinking of you a lot and hoping you are doing alright.
