Machinist, I make it a point to stay away from this part of the forum because I'm afraid of divisive subjects like religion, politics etc. After all we're here because of what we have in common. We like trains.

In this case we have something else in common. A couple of years ago I had to put down my cat Imogene. Imogene was named after a song like my forum handle. I loved that cat and it's easy for me to imagine you feeling the same way about yours.

I'm sorry

My condolences on the loss of your loved family member.
One train short of crazy!
But I'm working on it.

I wish to sincerely thank everyone for their kind comments and words of support-it helps. Once a pet(doesn't matter what kind) is in your home and heart, they ARE family.

Pets are DEFINITELY family. I am so sorry for your loss. We had to put our beloved New Moon (a black DSH) down 3-1/2 years ago. She stopped eating, and when we took her in, they found her kidneys had failed. So, we could have taken her for dialysis twice a week, but we didn't think there would be any quality of life for the cat. She was only 9 as well. She was the fifth animal I've had to put down, and it never gets any easier.

Perhaps, after an appropriate time, you will be ready to adopt another. We were, and a visit to the Old Lyme Animal Shelter brought Sirius Black (around here, it does seem to be true that no one wants black cats), aka Bungie, into our lives. The scrawny, scraggly-haired kitten we brought home blossomed into a perfect Maine Coon -- all 18 pounds and 44 inches (nose to tail) of him. He is a delight -- cuddly and playful, and always getting into trouble.

I'm not a cat guy, but I've had several during my first marriage...However, pain is pain, and pain comes with love...I've had that sad day come many times, and it doesn't get any easier.. At one point I had 5 dogs, I thought it would be easier when one crosses the rainbow doesn't help....My oldest dog, a chihuahua, was very sick, and we thought that day had come.. We took her to the vet, and I cried all the way there, and during the visit.. I've had much pain in my life, but NOTHING compares to the pain of losing an animal..Anyways, the vet put her on some meds, and she's still with us..I have to carry her up the stairs and such, but it's worth it...By the way, her name is Belle, also..God bless my friend...

Very sorry on your loss. We have lived with cats and dogs in the family for over 40 years,and when one goes, it never becomes easier regardless of how many you have lived with. Each is a unique being and personality. Hold onto your happy memories of her.
