Sorry to hear that Colin, that's never easy to deal with.

My sincere condolences for the loss of your family member.

you have my sympathies - i know what's it's like.

looking after numerous old cats for ten years, i've had to make that decision many times over, and with two of my own personal pussers too.

it was for the best.

it's a pity the kids can't really understand that yet.

My condolences Colin. I have never gotten another cat after having to have Boots put down many years ago...

After a certain period of time you should take another one. I experienced the same with a dog. People who never had (companion) pets will never understand what it means when you lose one. Take one from a shelter, young or older.

I'm so sorry to hear that Golden, but remember that he had a good life, and by the sound of things was a seasoned traveller.

Perhaps after the initial grief has lessoned you will get another, after I lost one of mine to a car hubby went to a shelter and got me 2 more. After about 6 years of them being around one went missing, which left room for the latest one that just turned up and adopted us.
