Heartbreak...

Well for those that know me personally, follow my blog/posting or plain just didn't know this, I am a cat lover twice over. OK I am a crazy cat lady....But, once again heartbreak has hit our house. Peanut has been sick for the last 8 weeks and I have been doubting over her trying to get her well. About 4 weeks ago she was diagnosed with FIP a fatal disease and contagious...so I have been keeping her happy, well looked after, while her sickness took over. This week we had to put her down, she was only 1 1/2 years old and we had her for only 6 months....she was the sweetest thing on earth..it was hard not to get attached to her...I am so sad over it. Snickers now has become infected as well, but it is in a latent form, Tilly seems ok for now. Having pets is so catch 22, they are so joyful to have with all their unconditional love that they give you, but it is so hard when they pass away....

Oh Jen, I'm so very sorry to hear of the loss of your kitty. We have been babysitting my dd's cat since the end of September and I am not looking forward to the day she takes him home again. It has been so very easy to become head-over-heels attached. {{Hugs}} coming your way.

Oh Jennifer, I'm so very sorry. My cat Maggie is 18 and I am watching her fade away. It is so very hard to lose a cat you love, but they add so much to our lives. Have strength.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing Gus last year made me question if I could ever get another animal because it's so hard to say goodbye. I hope the other cats stay healthy. Hugs.
