very sad time for us

We are just heartbroken today. Yesterday, we had to put our beautiful little Belle to sleep. After a trip to our cat vet for breathing difficulty and fluid retention, a ct scan revealed she was filled with cancer. After 14 loving years with her, we could not let her suffer. She was the sweetest, most gentle cat you could ever want. Her pain is over but ours remains.

As a fellow cat owner, I'm very sad to hear about your loss. Perhaps in time, you'll find another feline friend at your local animal shelter.

Unfortunately, you'll never find another Belle!

Sorry for your loss! It is hard to lose a beloved pet, but you did the right thing.

Nick, so sorry about your sweet Belle. Beautiful cat. Very tough to lose a pet.
She was a family member. My son has a black cat that is the opposite of Belle.
Not sweet and not gentle. She, name is Baby, will rip your arm off if you try to
pet her. I really feel sorry for her. She was dumped by her mother just as her
eyes opened. My son had to bottle feed her for awhile. Mom was a feral cat and
Baby has the traits. She loves my son and pretty much hates everyone else.
She tolerates me because I baby sat her during the day while my son went to work.
She is so gentle and loving to my son. She is only 8 lbs. But ounce for ounce the meanest cat I have seen. Now you know why I feel sorry for her. My son has a roomate.
been in my son's house for 3 years. Baby hates him and has ripped his arm a few times.
She growls, like a dog, if he comes in the room. Feral cats can be a problem.

Again, sorry for your loss.

We've had a number of cats over the many years. The best and most loving was Tinker, who was with us for 21 years. Parting is not sweet sorrow, it's horrible!

I know you will miss her, but I hope you take solace in fond memories.
