Chango died a week ago from feline leukemia, even though his shots were up to date. I wrote a little addendum to his profile in the bio section, but how do I indicate his death date on his profile? (searched everywhere!) Thanks for your help.little angel

Oh my goodness! I am so sorry this happened. I read on his page you think the vaccination was outdated. This would be a good subject to put in the support and memorial section. If you go into edit his profile, click on the part of it where it's his story. There's a place to check where it says that "Chango is no longer with us" and that will fix that. You can also put in the date of his passing so in the future, other kitties will know when it's his rainbow bridge day and we'll all be here for you so you don't have to go through it alone. I hope this helps and again, I'm so sorry for your loss. hug

We're SO sorry you lost Chango. Our thoughts and purrayers are with you.

You can also look up the "A Team", a group that will take a kitty's photo and put angel wings on it for you. Go to "Groups", "Search Groups", then under "Tags" put in "angel, wings" and the group name will come up. Then you can join and leave a message for a wings picture.rainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbowrainbow rainbow

Thank you sooo much, Friends, for your kind words and informative posts. As you all know, it's one of the most difficult things in life, to grieve for a lost pet. Non-critter-lovers just have no idea how dreadful we feel, and for a very long time. Even though Chango was with us only a couple of years, he was the cat I seem to have most bonded with. Your gentle thoughts made me feel so much better. Thanks again!
