Bad and Good

So let’s start with the bad/sad news. Remember the kitty I posted a video about in an earlier post. Click here if you don’t. Well anyway today Kat found him in our garage and noticed something was wrong with him. We aren’t sure what happened to him, he was doing fine. I went to see for myself and I wish I hadn’t. He couldn’t walk, he soiled himself and made no sound. He was dying. Seeing him this way was just heartbreaking. I couldn’t help but burst into tears. I know we didn’t have him long enough for us to actually consider him our cat, but I already saw him as part of the family. It was hard not to grow attached to Willow, with his dinosaur meow and constant need for attention. He was already ours. I had hope to see him get fat and healthy but sadly that won’t happen. My dad had to call animal control to come and get him out of the garage and put him to sleep. It just makes me really sad that we couldn’t save him. I really wish I knew what happened and what caused his condition to worsen. This is the first time I have witnessed a dying pet. I can’t imagine how I will feel when I lose one of my older cats. Goodbye Willow, I’m glad you aren’t suffering any longer.

Sorry for depressing you. To make up for that I want to share with you some good news. Here is an awesome giveaway. I know this might not be the time to mention a giveaway but I’d rather think of something fun. So what’s more fun than the chance of winning free stuff?

    It gets me really hard whenever an animal is dying. I deal very well with humans dying – relatives,or whatever really – but not animals. even though the dying animals are like stray ones, I can’t help but to feel sad…. I have such soft spot for animals :
    I used to have a cat; a stray one but mother threw it away. sigh. and I cried for a week. I don’t know how I’ll deal with my dog growing old, really. I know animals die but yeah, it’s just tear jerking sometimes.

    @Shiki, Even though he wasn’t with us for very long it was still hard to see him in such pain. I wish I could have done more to save him. I’m sure your dog is leading a very happy life and has many years still to live. How old is he? My oldest cat is 12, so far he is still as feisty as a young kitten.

    @kim, first off, it’s a she πŸ˜‰ it’s just that I’m very very concerned about her getting a mate because female dogs need to mate and well, it’s frustrating to think that I’m the only one who gets all worried about this because I’m a hugeee animal lover while my family is just, “meh just go with the flow” and all, if you get what I mean. Oh and she’s still young, I guess? A year and half, somewhere along there,yeap.

    @Shiki, Oh. XD I dunno why I assumed she was a he. Sorry about that. Are you hoping to keep the same breed or does it matter if she mates with any type of dog? Is getting another dog out of the question? And she’s a year? I would say she is quite young. I think 5 is considered an adult. You could always search for animal breeders. You may find someone willing to mate dogs with you. Wow that sounds a bit odd. My uncle is breeding his horse and another horse owner lets him borrow his horse until the deed is done. It’s not free of course. But in your case you can offer a pup from the litter maybe? Especially if your dog is a purebred or something. I know horses are different than dogs but I’m sure it can be done the same way. :3

    Poor kitty. πŸ™ At least he isn’t hurting now, and he had a home with your family, if only for a little while.

    @Robin, Yeah, I’m trying to focus on the silver lining.

    Aww that’s so sad! I would be horribly heartbroken as well. I grow attached to animals when I first see and hold them. I’m a huge animal lover! But I’ve seen way too many animals die on me.. It sucks and it’s never easy πŸ™ A new animal will help sometimes πŸ™‚

    @Ashley, It was hard not to get attached to this kitty. It must be hard to be an animal, never being able to tell someone if something is wrong. -.- I’m sorry that you’ve had to see many pets die. I like being able to look back on the pictures and video I took of him.

    Thanks for reading and commenting. :3

    Aw, I’m sorry to hear about your cat. πŸ™ But you’re right though – at least he’s not suffering anymore.

    @Krystal, Thank you for reading and commenting. And the fact that he’s no longer suffering makes me feel better about the whole situation.

    […] us. I kept thinking the worse. I mean I never expected to lose one of my cats so soon after losing Willow. And Willow was only with us for about a week, that’s nothing compared to six years. The […]
