Remember Your Beloved Pet
Cat Died: Cancer

My youngest cat, who would have been 14, April 13, died Wednesday, February 22, 2012, of a cancerous tumor that was pushing tissue out of her nose. She had gone from 12.5 pounds to 6.8 pounds, and she could not eat because she could not smell.

I hope she is out of her misery now. Do you think she is?

I need to think so. I have felt that there is a peace and freedom after life and I believe it true for animals also. So sorry for your loss - I know it hurts.

Yes, she's out of her misery. There is no more pain now, there can't be. Personally I do believe that cats have souls, mostly because I have felt various departed friends around me from time to time. I grieve with you and I hope the times you had together were happy times.
