  • Our Bubba didn't make it

    Feels strange posting this here. But, our beautiful big kitty, Bubba, didn't make it. He died last night. Lots of tears here.

          I can't imagine the loss you must feel as I try to imagine what it would make me feel like to lose my "child" (spoiled rotten mutt housedog named "Maggie" currently sleeping on the couch)

          I can say "I'm sorry for your loss" and will say a prayer for you.

            Thanks everyone. You know, he was just a dumpster kitty. His litter was found in a dumpster where someone had "thrown " them away. He was an orange tiger kitty, absolutely huge. He had no sense of humor but loved all of us very much. We weren't allowed to hold him or pick him up. He came to us for love when he felt like it and, even then, we could not place him in our laps to pet him or he would take off. But, he would sit beside us, giving us nosekisses.
            He stalked the dog, day in, day out. That was his favrorite thing to to. That and sleep.
            It's hard to understand for some people I guess how someone could get so upset over losing a cat. But, our pets become part of our families and part of our hearts.
            It hurts to know we won't see that big guy waiting around the corner for the terrified dog to run into him.
            It just plain hurts. But, at least he isn't in pain anymore.
            We sure are goign to miss him, so much.

              I'm so sorry to hear about Bubba. I just put my cat Chocolate down earlier this year and I'm not too macho to tell you that I bawled when he died in my arms. It took me a good ten minutes to compose myself so that I could walk out into to the waiting room and pay the receptionist. Of course once I got into the car, I totally lost it and cried a good ten minutes more. Don't know how I drove home with tears runing down my face.

              The only good thing is that he isn't in pain anymore and his brother Sandy has more than filed the void.These animals really do become more than pets.

                  So sorry to hear of Bubba. I really don't know what else to tell you, other than try to keep your chin up, and think of all Bubba did for you.

                  I won't suggest you get another cat to "replace" Bubba. Pets are like fingerprints- no two are ever the same. Every animal has it's own characteristics, and it's own unique personality. You can't replace what is one of a kind.

                  I will say that if I know the kind of person you are, there is another kitty out there who deserves a master such as you. In fact, if I was a cat, I'd choose you!

                    Mitzi - I am so sorry to hear about Bubba. Hearing about him from your posts made us all feel as if we knew him, at least a little bit.

                    One of my family's dogs died just before I returned to school this semester. It will be hard to go home and see that he's not there. Our other dog is still very lonely, and just follows my parents around the house. Animals do indeed become a part of the family, and it is so hard when they go.

                    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
                    "Great occasions do not make heroes or cowards; they simply unveil them to the eyes of me. Silently and imperceptibly, as we wake or sleep, we grow strong or we grow weak, and at last some crisis shows what we have become." - B.F. Wescott

                      For Mitzi......

                      Today you say good bye
                      As your cat goes to the sky
                      And you sit and wonder why
                      Was it my cats turn to die

                      Cats are so much more
                      Then just a measly pet
                      They become our confidant
                      Our best friend yet

                      They gives us many days of joy
                      Many smiles and laughter to
                      When we are sad or feeling blue
                      They know just what to do

                      So as you say goodbye
                      And tears roll down your eye
                      Remember, as your head you bow
                      Your Bubba is safe in heaven now....

                        Thanks so much, WW for that wonderful poem. And thanks to everyone else too. Today has been very hard. I know some people might thinks all this grief over a cat is a bit much. But he really wasn't just a cat. He was part of the family. He did make us laugh and he was always there. It just feels like a member of the family is gone. When my husband rushed him to the emergency clinic yesterday morning, the furthest thing from my mind was that Bubba wouldn't be coming home. He's only been sick twice in his 8 years of life, this time being one of them.
                        I just miss him so much. But, time will heal all of us. I still have 2 dogs and another cat and that helps some. We won't be getting another cat to take Bubba's place. That couldn't be done anyway. He was one of a kind.
                        Thanks again.
