So today my cat would have turned 16. I got her for my 9th birthday and I don't know how I would have survived the awful teen years without her...Everytime I was sick she was right there, when I was upset and crying she would sit on my pillow. Poor cat, I tortured her, dressed her up and swaddled her like a baby, would tease her and she would come right back. I had to put her down in January..I acutally spent most of new years eve with her at the emergency vet clinic (thank goodness all my friends are in vet school and I had 'ins' to be able to do that) She was not living with me (poor simon would have prolly attacked her long ago) I couldn't take her to school with me and there was no way my mom was gonna let me take her once I could :) The worst part was that my mom blamed simon for it for the longest time, because we didn't realize she was sick until she was face to face with simon one day when we were home and she didn't do anything. She had 'met' him several times before, usually from a distance. That was really hard on me, hearing the blame on my dog and my mom yelling and crying "its all your dogs fault!" Now my mom absolutely loves simon, even though she won't admit it. That cute dobie face will get to her eventually :)

Just wanted to share my story in rememberance...

Thank you for posting your story. When I read stuff like this I always try to remeber not to take life for granted. Life is way to short for our furry friends. Be it dogs, cats, birds, or what have you.
It really is. I can't imagine going a day without Piper or Rommel.


I am sorry for the loss of your cat. That's tough, growing up with him, and then losing him at that age. It's amazing what animals will tolorate from us as children. 16 years is a long time (not long enough) but Im sure you have many wonderful memories of him. :)

We had a cat that lived till she was 19 she saw all the dobes i ever owned and never once let one dominate her,she was never an indoor cat ,in fact we had to force her to stay indoors if it was really cold weather ,she was the rat and mouse patrol and often brought us a "present" sometimes still alive.

I think cats have a certain sense of when to give affection that dogs lack, while dogs are always swarming you with affection cats seem to really know when a person is really in need... having a cat bump against your chin or butt heads when you are sick.

We had a feline leukemia positive siamese when i was a kid, he live to be an astonishing 22 when the effects of the disease overwhelmed him :( He was such an affectionate boy too.

awww im so sorry about your kitty!... one of my cats has been acting weird...I don't know if it just discovered the doggy door...but we have a completely fenced in kennel with a roof etc..and lately he has been wanting to be in the kennel...we had a cat that died young suddenly and was acting weird the night before...so I am hoping that he just discovered the doggy door...and enjoys playing with the rolly polly bugs...Hopefully he isnt sick and trying to get away...were taking him to the vet soon probably cause he likes to pee everywhere...and might be puking...so we want to rule out any health stuff...
Happy Birthday to your cat me and Duchess blew her a kiss!
