One of our cats has had to be put to sleep this week after a sudden onset of blindness, caused by a tumour on her kidneys.

One of five, mother plus four kittens, that we had originally, the last surviving member is now 15 years old.

Always causes a tearful morning for us both, but she was well looked after and we felt that it was kinder to let her go than stumble around in blindness and discomfort.

So sorry for your loss, we had the same decision to make 4 years ago with our cat who at almost 18 years old had kidney failure, and though it was a heartbreaking decision it was kinder than to see her suffer. you have given your cat a good life and made the right decision even though it is heartbreaking for you, remember the good times.

Animals are such agreeable friends, they don`t ask questions and they never criticise

We had one of our ponies put down last year, that was very painful, 20+ years of friendship and fun all gone in an instant.

Why do we get so attached to Pets?

I've been there so many times so know how you must be feeling. Perhaps the only saving grace is to know that such a brave decision was the best one for your pet.

Run free at the bridge little one.

The final loving decision we can make for our pets

We miss them yes, but they miss all the drawn out pain of a final illness

And leave us With countless memories

And better people for knowing and loving them

And beingloved by them
