I'm so sorry to hear of your loss.

I know he was a big part of your family.

Thanks Jim, It sure is funny how attached you become to these furry little creatures. At least he is in no pain now, hard to see them suffer.

Catavenger, Thank You. We were always dog people before our dog died and a stray cat befriended him. Then he the cat got lukemia and the day we had to put the cat down he brought home his pregnant girlfriend , so we had mom cat and five kittens. David was one of the 5 kittens. We still have 4 more cats left and love each and everyone of their cute personalitys. These cats are very kind and hold your hand and give you kisses, sounds strange but i believe how you treat animals are how they treat you in return.

I'm a dog person but have a secret affinity to cats, or maybe they just like me? Not sure but I do know the pain of losing a loved pet and my heart goes out to your family. Its never easy to lose one, and while non-pet people say things like "its just a ..." they truly don't understand that these are actually members of the family.

Sorry for your loss.

We have a long hair tortoise shell one that is my wife's baby. We got her in Nov 2004. So she is just one year behind David James....and she is having health issues over the past few months. Sure has my wife and I worried. Like you said they are one of the family ...our kids are grown and gone so the 4 legged ones are the only ones we take care of daily.

Melensdad, Thanks for your sympathy, it is greatly appreciated. We all take things af different levels , and yes they are truly members of our family, as we have never had kids. But have been blessed with 30 neice and nephews.

Smile Re: Lost one of 4 legged kids

Thanks Doc. I guess I didnt think that animals have all the same medical issues that we humans have. Our poor cat had a tumor the size of my hand along with two or three smaller tumors. Had we known that we may have been able to minimize his suffering sooner. Always hard to see them go but the pain for him is over. Time to remember all the good times and move on. Best wishes with your cat .

I sure do know how you feel.
Lost my Dachshund, Gretchen last winter and thought I'd completely fall to pieces.
Well, I did for a while actually. 14 years is a long time to have a fur baby.

There is no doubt in my mind that you gave David James the best of everything possible

I also have a cat now and never thought I would.
He's a dandy!
