The thing that always amazes me about pets. Their personalities and unique little behaviors. Itís so interesting to me.   

Me and STella were just talking about this, how they each have their own personalities.  Some people say not to give them "human emotions" which may be true to a degree, but anyone who has had and loved a pet knows that they do feel/express emotions, even if they aren't to the same degree as a person can express or feel them.

Well, I'm very sad to report that my 21 year old cat that I told everyone about last week passed away peacefully at home this morning.  She was truly loved by everyone and she will be sorely missed every day for the rest of our lives.  We were only so lucky to have this special girl in our lives and we are truly grateful for that.  We know she is now in a very special place.

We love you little girl.

Thanks everyone - it's extremely tough to deal with this, especially having her for her entire life - it's been a very long time.  But I take comfort that she had the best of everything and died very peacefully.  I took her to the vet this morning one final time (after she had passed) and the nurses, even the doctor (who has been doing this for 40 years) was balling their eyes out - it was a great tribute to such a wonderful animal.

Thanks again.

I can imagine.  I remember when my dog passed,,,,it was emotional for everyone.  She was just part of the family & the Vet over the course of years learned her 'quirky' personality.

Thanks everyone.  Laura, the other cats seem to be doing pretty well.  I took half the day off from work to check on them.  I hope this trend continues.

Don't be surprised if they cry now and again, looking for Moguwai.  You had mentioned that they all played together.  They will at some point be very curious as to why they can't find her.  Sad

I think this is fitting for this thread:

THE PURPOSE OF A DOG - FROM A 4 YEAR OLD

Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year old
Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife,
Lisa, and their little boy, Shane, were all very attached to Belker
and hey were hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the
family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform
the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.

As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would
be good for the four-year old Shane to observe the procedure. They
felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's
family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog
for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going
on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The
little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any
difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker's
death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are
shorter than human lives.

Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, "I know why."

Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next
stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation.

He said, "People are born so that they can learn how to live a good
life --- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?"
The four- year-old continued, "Well, dogs already know how to do
that, so they don't have to stay as long."

my parents had their dog put down last November.He was old and had severe arthritis and he couldn't even hold himself up to do his business.I loved that old dog. I was sorta upset with my dad because he just did it...I mean,we all knew it was coming,but that dog was part of our family for over 14 years,it would have been nice to say goodbye...I called my dad one night on my lunch break..I asked "How is Stormy doing today?" (like I said I knew the end was near) Then dad just said "well...I took him down today and had him put down...he's gone." He was about to cry telling me...and I have never ever seen my father cry. He buried him in the back ...still had his collar and leash on...said he didn't want to have to look at it.

Well, although I understand you wanting to say goodbye....it sounds as if your old man just had to do this difficult task in his own way.  I'm not saying that in a negative way....but maybe he just wanted to do this by himself.
I know how it feels when you have to put your best pal down.  Some people handle it different on so many different levels.  My father did the same & put down the animals in our house by himself.
Don't look at it negative.

   Oh I didn't mean to sound negative...I wasn't really mad at him...just upsetthat I never said bye to the dog.....my dad and mom did it together..they took him to the vet and when they brought him home dad buried him without removing his leash or collar that he had used to lead him down there...I miss the dog but feel worse for my father because I know that was hard for him to do.

When I was growing up...our Vet would come to the house.

Funny.....Vet would come out all the time for this or that & the dogs were always happy to see him.  When ever he came out to do that deed....the rest of the dogs (seriously) would huddle together, lay down under the table.  All the years the dogs would lay together...they would never get that close to one another & practically lay on top of one another unless he was coming out to do that.  Then for the rest of the day...they would seriously just mope around.  Lay very quiet...wouldn't play & barely would eat anything.  By the 2nd or 3rd day they would start getting back in their normal routine.  For the next couple of weeks though, if I watched them...they would snoop around the yard "looking" for maybe a lost friend.

True..dogs don't have the memory compared to a human...but I believe they know there's something "missing" or out of order. 

When I left for the Marines...my dog just wasn't herself.  My parents tried doing a lot of stuff with her just to keep her busy.  6 months or 8 months later when I would come home....she would go berserk.
