Bein a Bachelor again, I opened myself up to the idea of a cat. Personally, I would rather strangle them, shoot them, poison them or whatever ... not to mention the fact that I am allergic to them.

Well, after a little research, I got Gizmo P. Hummer. My Maine Coon Cat. Two weeks ago, at a tender age of 9 months he was diagnosed with Feline Leukemia. I took him in, held him close, and rubbed his little head while he took his last breath.

Never thought I would much be sentimental over a damn cat. But, Gizmo is gone... so unfair. I got real attached to him...

Anyway, his parents had another litter and I am looking at two males. Thinking of naming them Vito and Guido.

Farewell Gizmo.

AWWWW AJ...tough break pal. We lost our first cat to that also, heartbreaking.

May I suggest that if you get two males, get them neutered quickly or they will be marking, trying to outdo the other one.

At one point this past summer there were 5 cats in the house and one out. None of them are actually MY cat. LMAO

Yes it most certainly was your mistake. Biker does not equal insensitivity or noncompassion...your attempt at humor was very inappropriate.

AJ:

Sorry to hear about your Cat. It's hard to believe, until it happens to ourself, how attached we can become to a pet. They actually do become part of the family. I had to put down two family members(dogs) last year, within 6 months of each other. They were both 15. Believe it or not, I cried like a friggin baby. When you look back you realize, they were alway there, regardless of the good, bad and/or ugly going on.

Peace!

AJ....I'm sorry to hear about you kitten. It's amazing how much they work their way into our hearts.
This is something that the vet gave me when my dog, Sheena, died. It made me cry at first then smile when I thought about all the joy she brought me.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Hugs, AJ...Sorry to hear of your loss...I myself do love cats, & other animals, but had chosen not to get one in my new home. Well, last May a guy friend of mine was moving out-of-state & I am now the new Mom of DC (Damn Cat)who is a 12 year old Seal or Blue Point Siamese...not sure which he is. Friends thought I was crazy for taking on a 12 year old cat & sometimes I wonder the same thing. Especially after a $240 Vet bill for his bladder infection a few months ago. But I have to admit that he has brought joy in my life & it was like it was meant to be for the two of us to be joined for the rest of his years.
It's tough putting an animal down & it's nice to know that under your tough exterior that you're a softy at heart...I'm glad that you were with him when he passed on...I think getting two cats now would be a good thing for you - plus they keep each other company when you're gone.
Hugs again, my friend...
