68. I'm so, so sorry LH
I lost my beloved kitty if 15 years to cardiomyopathy and hyperthyroid disease last August, and watching him suffer through his seizures was one of the toughest things I've ever been through. We feel so helpless when someone we love is suffering from such an illness, all we can do is offer what comforts we can- and sometimes that means release from this world.You gave him a few months of warmth, safety, and love; all of which were wonderful gifts i'm certain he was grateful for. I have a four month old kitten sleeping in a laundry basket a few yards from me right now (my little Puck, one of two kittens I brought home to keep my older cat and myself company after the loss of Peewee). He sleeps with me under the covers too, and by the heat register. I think I'll give him an extra hug right now.

To grieve is to know that we have truly loved. Peace to the both of you. :hug:
