A very sad day

On wednesday one of my cats Eric or Ercy as we called him was hit by a car, he suffered extensive damage to his pelvis including nerve damage and sadly couldnt be saved so today he had to be put down. We got him 3 years ago as a tiny kitten shaking with fear and he snuggled in my beard and started purring as he calmed down, a great cat who never once clawed anyone or was ever a pest. Today I held him as he tried to hide in my beard, in pain and frightened, poor little guy, Im very sad even though it was painless and gentle and he was with both me n suzie at the end. 

Sleep in peace now little Ercy :-(

  2. Hard luck mate. They say a dog is man's best friend. I beg to differ. Cats are PEOPLE.

  3. My heart goes out to you - an a prayer for Ercy. I've been through a similar tragic event - I still think of my doggie, Changun, everyday. God Bless, Dean

  5. So sorry to hear of your loss. We've always had cats, lost two a year or so back... leaving one older cat... 3 new kittens were rescued shortly after... the new family additions ease the pain of the others passing...

  6. Gentlemen, thank you all for your kind comments, Marcus Aurelius said when someone dies we grieve only for ourselves, they lose just the moment theyre living, they dont yet have tommorow and already lost yesterday and are free of hunger, pain and stress. Its all true.

  7. So sorry Mike. Always hard to lose a pet. I still haven't really gotten over the loss of our cats.
