Not every cat gets a tumor and dies hustley baby, no reason to never get another one just cause you're afraid of what "might" happen.
And it sounds like your cat lived a pretty damn good life. Better than probably 50% cats out there. You can come over for some angry sex later to help you cope.

I must give it up to my current cat, she always uses the litter-box, even when I haven't changed it in a week because I'm traveling or a drunk.

She's now sitting in front of the TV and she knows I won't pull the trigger on the squirt bottle (could hit the TV) and even knows the sound is a bluff.

These Capitalist kitties would not appreciate the way of the Canadian.

My mom called me last night w/ a story about the gurL kitty. Big Cooze was locked in my parents' room for three days without food while they were out of town. My mom didn't know she was in there so she must have been asleep under the bed. There's no poop or pee anywhere. The only evidence that she spent time in there was a hairy pillow.

Now today, the vet is coming to the house after work to help end the suffering of illness and emaciation. He had a tumor on his tongue, we had it removed, and he hasn't eaten in a month. He's now incontinent, emaciated, and doesn't move. He's lifeless, so we're going to make today his last.

I've had another cat for the last 6-months and I don't know that I should keep her because I don't know if I can go through with "the end" that I'm watching from a distance today. I'm trying to rationalize this by acknowledging the great life we give them by living in a house, a drum of food and water, chin scratchings, and that death in sedation is significantly better than the food chain, a car, or illness which they'd experience in the wild. It's selfish for me to deny the cat because i can't deal with her "end", right?
:(

I have lived long enough to lose several wonderful dogs and kitties and it doesn't get easier. But I would not have traded the opportunity to love and be loved for loneliness and an un-enriched life out of fear of loss. I gave them a good life and I gave them love and respect. In the end I could look back and say how lucky they each were to have been rescued and how lucky I was for the opportunity to live a more complete and full life because of them. We were there for each other. I did my best to help each of them at the end, but when the inevitable time comes and reasonable efforts no longer keep the suffering at bay, they needed me to do the difficult thing out of love, too. They would not have lived even half as long if they were strays and would never have died as humane a death.

We honor them in life and they trust us to do what is right for them and so we care for them in death.

I would never trade the richness of the relationship for a fear of pain. To love is to live. If you never lose anything, you have never gained anything.

I feel a little better now.

I went a fed the strays at lunch, you ******* need to adopt one or 5. I'm taking another home. I've grown attached to this herd so I'm really trying to get them all adopted. Feeding 6 cats get's expensive. I'm also a little surprised they survived the -3*f nights we had recently.

My sister's beloved cat, Yanar.

Passed away recently at 16, after a horrible ordeal, leading to organ failure..
We are still "mourning" her.

I'm not going to be one of those annoying people who begs you to adopt cats, this will be the only time you ever see one of these threads from me. These critters are less than 1-year old and lived next to my GF's old apartment and I grew attached to them. They're pretty social and they're my friends so I'd like to see them adopted as they are all that remains of the stray cat colony that wasn't killed in some recent bull-dozing. I'm happy to capture them and take them to you but they need a trip to the vet for spaying, a bath, and declawing (~$175 for everything including a chip with the City of Denton). All are confirmed female aside from #5.

My GF can pet and scratch all of them aside from #1 because she's so skittish.

from left to right
#1 is skittish, possibly not-catchable and you probably only want this cat if it will be a relaxed environment. (This cat is 2-4 years old, the rest are <1)
#2 is very snuggly but shy and close to #5(needs to go with #5)
#3 this cat is the runt, she's fun but mean to the other kitties about food
#4 the fluffer is going to live with me
#5 also snuggly, a little more outgoing than #2 but still close to her buddy (needs to go wtih #2)

I adopted this ferocious beast from the same herd:

The first one looks a lot like the wild neighborhood stray we eventually befriended and took in. She's gone from "don't touch me" wild to an annoying "love me right now" cat in two years. They warm up quickly.

This is honestly the worst national anthem ever:


I've seen better ones at high school basketball games. Why would they let some washed up spoiled ugly hag sing the national anthem and completely BUTCHER it like that?
