My cat just died.

One of our two cats died last night, my mom just called to tell me the news.

We've had Thunder for twelve and a half years, I was the one who picked him out and named him. He was always the more outgoing of the two, and very tough-- one of the toughest pets in the neighborhood. We'd hear stories from neighbors about the fights he'd gotten in with their cats and dogs, and we had the scarred ear to prove it.

I guess a couple months ago my family noticed that he had gotten much more frail and stopped eating as much. The vet said he had some thyroid condition, and he started taking pills for it. My mom said he had been doing much better recently, and she had put off getting more medicine. I actually insisted on picking up some more a couple days ago, the day I left for school.

He died last night in our basement, and I was the only one who didn't get to be there. It sounds pretty painful actually, they say he looked like he was trying to stand but couldn't, and he was making strange sounds. They think he had a stroke.

My dad just got back from the vet, and I guess they are cremating him but we don't get him? I wasn't sure how I thought it would work. The last time this happened, I was eight and our cat was being put down.

He's been such a big part of my life, I just wish I could have been there. I did have a nice little goodbye the other day, but at that point I thought I would see him again.

    Oh man.

    I'm crying for you.

    I remember when my last cat passed from diabetes. Dude, I'm glad that Thunder was an awesome part of your life for so long. It sounds like he gave you a good one, and vice versa.

    No, I totally want another one at some point. I don't know if my family will get one, they still have our girl Sassy. Whether they want to have two again or just stick with her, I'm not sure at this point.

    I figure when I graduate I'll get my own place, and there's nothing like cuddling with a cat. It's one of the things I get most homesick about from living in the dorms.

    I haven't seen my cat in two months. Apparently some people saw him a few streets over, though.

    I had just spent 1000$ getting expensive surgery for an abscess on his face. Plus about 2 weeks of him walking around the place with a drain dripping pus and blood everywhere.


    I don't know if I'll let him in if he comes back.

    My cat is 17 and most of his organs are shutting down. It is really sad and he will be dead soon so I feel your pain.

    Sorry man, that's rough. At least you kind of know it's coming, I guess. We knew he was bad, but we thought he still had a while.

    Also seventeen is pretty old, so that's awesome. I'm not sure how long cats tend to live, but 17 seems impressive.

    That is so cool. I love when pets get all protective of their families.

    Our female cat, she's the one who comforts everyone. She's normally really reclusive as opposed to Thunder, but if someone's crying she comes running and stays with you. When my sister was a baby and cried, she would jump into the crib to be with her. And I hear last night she was with my sister after this happened.
