Debi Posted November 9, 2004 Share Posted November 9, 2004 I had to put my cat, Casey, to sleep today. He was 15 years old. Even confirmed cat-haters ended up loving Casey because he was so damn cool. Casey has been there for me through my daughter's teen years, my 2 relationships & subsequent endings, my dad dying, moving across country, my grandchildren being born, my son being born. He was an aloof cat but he always loved me and would lay on top of me whenever I was sad or sick, he would always just know. After my son was born, I didn't have the time for Casey I used to, and I feel guilty about that. I also feel guilty about not taking him to the vet earlier, I thought he was getting old and losing weight, getting sluggish.. instead, he was suffering from diabetes. I maybe could have helped him, but I was just busy doing whatever it is I do and didn't really pay attention to the fact that it might NOT be old age. Before, my son kept asking when Casey is coming home and I didn't want to tell him the truth before his basketball game. I have to go and pick him up now and tell him that Casey isn't coming home. I know Casey is just a cat, but I can't stop crying... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
