That is so sad, I'm so sorry to hear. :( I haven't lost a pet, but if my dog needed to be put to sleep, I'd be crushed. I really hope your nephew will be okay.

Give them a hug from me - it's very sad when a pet dies, whether by accident or putting to sleep. One of my cats had to be put down last year after she became very ill with no hope of getting better. The best thing is to tell him the truth about Duffy, that he (she?) will have an end to the pain and sickness. I wish we could be so merciful for humans too :( .

There's no getting over the hole a pet leaves behind, but after a while you forget that they were terribly ill and suffering, and instead remember all the fun you had together http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif .

It is very sad when pets die. They are like part of the family. Its a problem that many people can relate to. You have all our sympathies.

This is so sad :( I'm sorry to hear this.

I think you should better tell your nephew the truth. If you think he'll suffer a lot (kids are very sensitive) tell him that Duffy had a terrible pain and he needs to leave and go somewhere in order to feel better. If your sister is willing to get a new puppy for your nephew, you can tell him that Duffy will send his best friend http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

Awww, I hate hearing about pets die. I know if my kitty died, even though I don't live with her anymore, I'd be really sad. I'd miss that crazy little animal :(

I hate to see pets die too. I have had five cats and one of them died a very painful death. Of course when a dog dies ,its different. I feel dogs are expressive than cats and thats why its so hard to get over their deaths.

Waht happened to your kitty Mary CF? Why isnt it living with you?

I moved away. My cat lives with my dad and brother, about a 45 minute to an hour drive away from where I live, and I neither drive nor have a car.

I see her maybe once every few months now, considering transportation issues and that visiting my dad isn't very high on my priority list.

He isn't always that bad, but the way he behaves, he's extremely difficult to enjoy being around.. or simply tolerate. Even my boyfriend, who's a really nice, fairly tolerant guy (his friends all look up to him as a role model), doesn't enjoy being around/talking to him.

I feel kinda bad saying that, and I wish I was closer to my parents... but it's probably not going to happen. There are things about them both that I just cannot deal with. That's just the way it is.

I'm sorry to hear that! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif Duffy will be better off though and I'm sure your nephew will come to terms with it. It's part of life that can affect you at any age. Here's my adult story:

When me and my wife had to put our cat "Muffin" (because she was so warm and toasty) to sleep several years ago we were with her as they gave her the needles because we wanted her to know we were there. We cried our eyes out uncontrollably at the office and all the way home. But it was undeniably what had to be done.

I was really depressed about it until about a week later. I was laying on the couch and I saw her sitting on the chair across from me! She got down and walked over and licked my face...! From that moment on I knew she was okay and when I told my wife the story she wasn't sad any longer either. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I prefer to believe her spirit actually visted me because it looked and felt so real!!! But whatever it was it was more than a regular dream--it was a moving experience that I'll never forget. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Oh dear I am sorry for your losses everyone. I think that it is very sad when an animal dies because like Focus said they are so innocent. My cat had to be put down because our neighbour put down rat poison on his garden and my cat ate some. It was horrific he died very nastily I have never been so upset in my whole life. Poor little animals. Anyway they have gone to a better place now http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Focus didn't say they are so innocent... I did! Oh well. but I'm glad you agree. I really wish I could see my cat more often, but at least I have the overly-friendly cat that lives next door http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I hope your cat is happy where she is now too, although I'm sure she misses you. You never know, she might show up on your new doorstep one day! Every once in a while you hear about a cat making a really long journey to reunite with it's loved ones...

There are so many pet lovers on this board... we all can sympathize with each-other. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/hug.gif

I also had lost a pet, my pet hamster had a sort of cancer in her hind leg and stomach so she had to be put to sleep.

But you know what's really sad? Yesterday I saw Animal Cops Detroit and there was this man (Who needed mental help), he was a cat lover and the "cops" went to his house because of a complaint. There was cat poop EVERYWHERE, on the floor, in the kitchen, on the furniture. And you want to know how many cats this guy had? 247 cats! In his home! All cramped together and living in their own fecis.

The sad thing is ALL 247 cats were put to sleep! They had such horrible and dirty lives and never got the chance to experience life. :(

Poor Duffy, I'm sorry to hear. That's very sad. I hope your nephew recovers well.

I lost a dog when I was an adult and it still hurts when I think of it. I wanted to be there when he was put down but it was a horrible experience and the image will haunt me forever. :(

:( I'm sorry everyone! I know how hard it can be when you lose a pet. I had a pet rat called Billy when i was younger. He had cancer in the throat but we didn't have him put down. I remember holding him in my arms. When my mum came home, i put Billy down to see her because i hadn't seen her for over 4 hours. When i came back up, i noticed he wasn't moving and i realised he died. I had only been a few minutes. In a way, i kinda blame myself because i think that he knew i had left him and he felt alone. But in a good way, it was like i was 'holding him back'. :(

I think it's better if you put them down. That's why I put that hamster of my to sleep because I had a feeling if she wasn't put down, then I was making her suffer by keeping her alive and in great pain.

Have any of you felt any guilt towards a lost animal like that? Like maybe you caused it or made them suffer some point in their lives?

Mary CF
06-08-05, 19:31
I don't really have any other pets, unless you count my boyfriend's dog, Corky. Or if you count the cat next door, then I have three pets http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif


DOH! I feel stupid now. I DO have other pets.

I have many, many fish (3 tiger barbs, about 8 female and 4 male guppies, a pleco, a bala shark, 5 black skirt tetras, used to have 5 neon tetras but one died), and two male African Dwarf frogs. The frogs are so cute, but I don't like how they fight when I feed them (they nip at each other a little). I'll post pictures when I get the chance, or if you want to see them, send me a pm http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif They're really really cute, I love them!
