    Strongs! It is one of the worst feelings in the world to have to put a beloved pet down.

    Sorry Tweeling, please accept my sincere condolences. As a huge cat lover that has taken in many lost or abandoned cats from the streets over the years and have also had a few ferals that moved into the yard after they somehow discovered that there's a steady and always available supply of food and water, I have been through this scenario many times.

    Feline leukemia, FIV, kidney failure, road accidents, old age, sometimes unknown causes, and it never gets any easier. Each time one of my cats crosses over the Rainbow Bridge it's like my heart is ripped out of my chest.

    Strongs to you.

    This is so sad, when ever we catch feral cats to sterilise, we test them for FIV, and the ones testing positive are put down.

    Strongs there, luckily there are plenty of kittens looking for homes at every shelter, just make them indoor kitties

    Mitzi was like a child to us. After 16 years and 8 months her heart was finished and she could not eat or stand anymore so me had to put her down on 29 March. Was a hard day and we still
    miss her everywhere in our lives, in the house, the car etc. Was a wonderfull companion for all these years and went on many trips with us. Grown up with Charlie, the bullterrier, and thought she
    was a bullterrier too, at least had the heart of one.
