Pets?

I'm feeling bummed today since my kitty is very sick and I can't be home right now to take care of him... Normally if I'm having a bad day, my fiance knows to just text me a picture of one of my 2 kitties and it'll definitely make me smile. Anyone feel up for sharing some pics of their little furry buddies? My two kitties are Niko 9 y/o black short haired (he's the sick one Smiley Sad ) and Yuki who is 2. I'm totally okay with being a crazy cat lady. No shame.

 

Re: Pets?

I'm so sorry for your loss. It must be so difficult to lose a pet. You're in my thoughts and prayers. Animals have an amazing way of being there for us when we are ill. They truly are mans/womans best friend!

Re: Pets?

Just thought I'd share that my wonderful roommate got me a Sephora gift card today to try and cheer me up! What a sweetie, huh?

 

I'm doing better as the day goes on.  I took my younger pup to the park today and gave her lots of hugs and kisses. It definitely helped to put a smile on my face, although I'm still battling tears every now and then.  

 

It was so strange--this morning when we put her down, it was gray and dreary outside.  But eventually, the sun came out.  Maybe I'm crazy, but I took it as a sign that she is at peace and lovin' doggie heaven.  I also took a quick nap and woke up after having a dream of her as a puppy.  Weird how things like that brighten your day!

Re: Pets?

That's really difficult Smiley Sad *ehugs*

Re: Pets?

Thank you so much for sharing all that babybear! I'm so so so sorry to hear of your loss. It's really hard making that decision since our little furry guys are our family and you build such great bonds with them, but it sounds like she lived a very fulfilling life that provided you with such amazing memories. That's what you have to hold onto, those sweet experiences you shared with them and smile back on them. It'll forever hurt losing a loved one (Even a pet), but as the days go on the pain isn't as overwhelming and becomes more manageable. I wish I could give you a big hug!

Re: Pets?

Aww I've totally been there...we had a cat w/ diabetes, unfortunately we caught it too late and even though we tried giving her insulin we eventually had to put her down. She was a great cat, so sweet and beautiful. She would have kept hanging on just for us. I miss Pinky cat and dream about her often!

 

Luckily we still have her "sister" Tito (not really her sister but they were my husband's cats from when he was a teenager; Tito is a girl but they thought she was a boy at first so that's why she's named Tito). Tito inherited some of Pinky's extra cuteness. Tito also became a lot more needy (she was the princess and became the queen), so it's like having 2 cats now.

 

I've been sick this week and Tito has been taking good care of me. So here's some photos of me asleep on my couch w/ her cuddling w/ me (one w/ my husband...and yes I am asleep w/ makeup on...after a night of dancing).

 

Hope these cheer you up! They are really like little people! <3

Re: Pets?

Thank you! What a cute kitty.  I'm sorry for your loss as well.  And you're right, they really are like little people--definitely members of the family!  She will be missed but at least she's pain-free and livin' it up in doggy heaven!  

Re: Pets?

The only thing that makes it feel ok is to know they aren't suffering any more! I love dreaming about her!

Re: Pets?

Kitty snuggles!!!! Cute photos!

Re: Pets?

SOOOO freakin cute!!Smiley Happy

Re: Pets?

So adorable!  And kitty diabetes is difficult Smiley Sad

Re: Pets?

 

those pictures are so sweet, and I'm sorry about the kitty diabetes. *hugs*

BTW, your makeup DID stay on really well. my makeup is usually much more off by the time I fall asleep with it on...how do you do it?

Re: Pets?

Layering...I can't remember if I used a primer, but layering a long wearing liner like UD 24/7 and shadow tends to help a lot.

Re: Pets?

I'm so sorry to hear you lost your kitty!! It's very hard to make that decision but you don't want to see them suffer. So sorry Smiley Sad

 

Queen Tito looks SO sweet!!! Thank you for sharing this! So precious

Re: Pets?

Thank you! Yeah I love her so much. <3

Re: Pets?

@makeupmaven- Sorry for your loss we have a cocker spaniel that we've had for 13 years and I couldn't imagine losing her. But it's like you said at least you can still dream about her.

 

@babybear04- So Sorry about your dog they are so much like a family member and you get so attached. Hope you feel better soon.

Re: Pets?

Thank you! I'm just glad to have known her, she was just so sweet. And very cute/ beautiful in a funny way (part siamese w/ calico coloring, sort of cross eyed bright blue eyes)...she'd squeak and hold your hand to her if you were petting her. And pick up a hamburger and steal it...dig shrimp shells out of the trash...beg for spicy thai food and ribs. Eat avocados and tomatoes (because she was thirsty from diabetes).

 

Tito's 14...we have her on Fancy Feast (she is very particular about flavors also)...protein is what cats need, they don't eat carbs in the wild and dry food contributed to getting Pinky sick. Tito loves bacon, pulled pork, ribs, roast chicken, cheese, scones. She sqeaked the other day while trotting, hilarious. Very baby like in her (young) middle-age. She'll be around for awhile we hope! Her head rolls and kisses are the best.

 

Anyways just writing this to acknowledge how human our little friends are!

Re: Pets?

@ContentlyKayKay- I really hope things get better for your kitty. It just breaks my heart thinking about a sick animal or seeing all the strays and abused animals on TV. I swear if I had a big enough place and yard I would take and love every single one I see (which would be about a thousand or so). My husband thinks I'm crazy because everytime I see one on the side of the road I want to feed it and make sure it's ok. Not crazy just want to make it better for themSmiley Happy

Re: Pets?

Aww you have a very big heart and that's amazing!! Thank you very much for your positive thoughts!

Re: Pets?

@rawrxjasmine-OMG! Both dogs are adorable but oooh cupcake just makes you fall in love immediately it's those eyes!

Re: Pets?



Don't worry I know how it is to love an animal. They just become family members! I have 3, all from the SPCA.

Re: Pets?

@babybear I sent you a message with some items to read during this hard time.

Re: Pets?

In case anyone cares/remembers, my dog that I posted about earlier is doing a lot better. The vet put him on a prescription diet and dasuquin and they seem to be helping his problems. He gets Valium before vet appointments now, and they make him stop turning blue. I'll try to post a picture of him later.

Re: Pets?

That's great, Lowrah!!! Smiley Happy Glad to hear he's doing better!

Re: Pets?

@lowrah- Sorry your dog was sick and glad he's better. What was wrong. I saw you posted about him having valium before his vet visit?

@kenny- Your dogs are so adorable. They look like 3 little kids that have been playing and all three come together for a quick picture.
