A sad day.

Today i have to take poor old Buster to the vet to be put to sleep, he is nineteen now and i have had him all his life, he is part of the family. He has been finding it increasingly difficult to get around, and i think he is going blind. I have been putting it off for a while but i know really he is not happy and has no quality of life anymore.

I will miss him.

My thoughts are with you, and I know how hard a decision it is to make. My Cleo is 18 and I know it will not be too long before I too have to make it.

Thinking of you xx

Noelle, I'm so sorry - gingertoms are my favourites. We use to have a gorgeous big fat one so I can imagine how you feel.

Big hugs,

Oh this is so so sad.At least you know he has had a good and long life. Nearly a year ago our baby boy Bob the cat died aged 16. He died in his sleep so we did not have to make the terrible decision. I am thinking about you, and send love and ((((((((hugs)))))))

So sorry to hear about Buster. Sounds identical to what we went through with our cat Dylan last December, he was the same age.
Sending you a hug.

Dear Noelle

I am feeling very sad after reading this, its no easy thing to say goodbye to a loved one, and I know exactly how difficult it is for you.

Sending you gentle hugs, and peaceful prayers for your little friend.

With love, thinking of you

I am so very sorry, Noelle. I dread this day for my Weegirl who will be 17 in September. Makes me cry just thinking about it. I know your heart is breaking. There is just nothing that will fill that empty hole. Love and Hugs.

Oh Noelle, I am very sorry to read this post, it is the hardest decision to make but the kindest thing we can do for our little friends. All we need to remember is they had the best life we could give them and they were happy with us. Lots of love and hugs Jane xxx

Ohh I am truly sorry to hear about Buster. It's such a sad time when we have to say goodbye to our cherished pets. They leave such a big hole in our lives when they go, but happy memories too.
Thinking of you,

So sorry to read that. We never have enough time with our pets do we but we love them enough to do the right thing heartbreaking though it is.
