Sooty, one of my two cats recently got diagnosed with a tumour in her throat. Today it was clear that she could no longer swallow food and the vet had to put her down.
She was 19 - in the family since I was one year old.

Gunna be honest. Not coping too well.

:( Poor kitty.

At least you know she isn't suffering. I'm sure she had a happy life. And at 19 years old you knew she had a long one.

bro hug

(Also, based off the name, I'm guessing it was a dark grey or black cat?)

A cat older than me... that is quite amazing.

I feel sorry.

I'm sorry man, I had no idea you had a cat.

19 is a good long life though so she had a good life.

Condolences, just remember that if you choose to get another cat you'll have to go through the same process all over again.

Crollo, that is really just a friendly joke to bring a smile. I'm sure Archie copes with it. If he doesn't, well, I am sorry.

What the hell is wrong with you.

Oh come on, don't tell me that's offensive! I feel this is a bit of overreaction. If that's the case, or if you guys are too sensible( seriously, it's infuriating to see such over-sensibilisation), then I request an admin to delete my last 3 posts here and the posts related to mine. Rimrook gave me the idea of a short lolcat joke. Just to bring a smile, no intention of insulting. Argh.

And I apologize( IF it's the case).

It's not even remotely offensive, don't worry Striker.

Cheers for the support, folks. Just a bit crazy coming to terms with it because I literally don't have memories from before I had the cats. They've always been there.

Bawwwww and all that, but this is pretty hard.

Luke nailed it, though - 19 is a heck of a good age for a cat and I know she had a good life and was loved :>

Sorry if I came off a little strong but when I posted about two of my cats dying I got abuse and trolling from one or two members.

I know you were only trying to cheer him up.

A cat older than ME... wow...

Aw man. Condolences.

Sad news, but 19 years... what a trooper. Mine's only 7 or 8 and I worry he's getting on in years.

Hope you've got lots of photos to remember her by.

That's terrible. You literally shared your entire life with this cat. That's a long life for a cat, as was said already. I'm sure you have plenty of fond memories.

You have my sincere condolences sir. Time heals and all that...

One of my cats has got chronic liver failure and one day soon he's going to be passing away.. not fun. I know how you feel archie , another of my cats whom I dearly loved was acting weirdly one night , got checked up and had a tumor. Was put down immediately after finding it.

Asked to be camera op on a documentary about pet cemeteries. Can't say no because I need the money. FML.

Sorry to hear Archie, I've lost many pets. Three dogs, 2 cats... I know where you've been. 19 is a fantastic age for a cat.

Your Cat lived to 19? Damn.

Sorry for your loss.
