    Sorry for your families loss Evangelion. I lost my last cat 5 or so years ago and it still hits me every now and again.

    Give your daughter a hug from me please.

    We saw him on the Facebook page of a local cat adoption agency last night, and he looked so much like Max that we decided it was meant to be, so my wife picked him up this morning. He's been desexed, microchipped, and fully vaccinated.

    Sorry for your loss. Sounds like he was a lovely cat. I'm sure you'll miss him for a long time, but I hope it gets easier with time.

    We thought we'd lost our cat a few months ago after she had what turned out to be a stroke. We all said goodbye as my wife and I took her to the vet, not expecting her to come home. My kids were distraught. Consequently when we brought her home they were overwhelmed with joy.

    I fear it was a taste of things to come, as she's very old. Not looking forward to going through all that again.

    I've just read the thread to the end and now see you have an addition to the family. Congratulations!

    You managed to get me quite emotional and that doesn't happen very often. Well done. And well done to Max what a good cat. RIP little buddy.

    Sorry to hear about this, I know exactly what you are experiencing. My cat and best friend of 12 years died 3 years ago and I still hurt every day depsite the time passed. Salem was the most beautifully natured cat I had ever encountered and watching him die by the fire place of a seemingly devastating heart attack will never leave my memory. Time will help but it will always hurt. Sorry for your loss.
