I'm 21 years old..I've had my cat Gus since I was 4 years old. Today I had to take him to be put down. He had stopped eating, lost alot of weight and was crying constantly. I had to hold him while they injected him...I just can't get the image of him on the table out of my head.
I'm so heartbroken and I can't stop crying. The house is so empty.
I miss him so much already..It's only been 4hours.
I feel so guilty about ending his life for him cry

Many purrs of comfort to you. A soul bond such as you shared with Gus is not a light thing to consider. We know you love him, and he you, and though you miss him, he is not far away.
Oh, that is so difficult, the positions our people are put into when we get to the point where life here is painful and they must help us shed the body we no longer need, and leap the light fantastic into beyond.
Please know that no matter what, you did the right thing and you are purred for loved, and Gus will let you know you aren't alone. Purrs..love and light...and when the time is right he'll find his way back to you...or send an emisarry in need.

All your years together you cared for him and now you had to help him to the Bridge. You were very brave. Helping our fur kids to the Bridge is the only sad thing about having them in our lives. Now you must believe that Gus is no longer in any pain, that his spirit is always with you and you will meet again at the Bridge.

Love ya, Gus!

So very sorry for your loss. Helping a beloved furbaby cross the bridge is hard but it is the last act of kindness you can extend to them. You did the right thing as hard as it may seem to believe. hug

hugs to you - it is so hard, we know this all too well. But remember that what you did for Gus was to give the ultimate gift of love. You set him free from his pain & illness. You thought of what was best for him. The pain will be there, and it hurts, but please know that we are all here for you. You have your own guardian angel on your shoulder now, and he will sit there always with you. Purrs to you for some peace. hug

Gus is at the Bridge and he will always be with you. Please know that you did the best for him always. You had so many good times together. Remember this. I had a memory gathering with my husband and daughter when we said good-bye to Ben. We had shrimp in his honor and recalled all of his times with us. It helps. When we gave him his wings, he was not alone. We did the same for our Natasha. It was our gift to release them from their burden. As soon as Natasha left, I could feel her go and her pain released. She was our sweetie who tried to stay as long as she could.
Gus is at the Bridge with her and Ben as well as many other loved cats. Celebrate Gus's life and know that he and you will always be together in your heart and mind....

Thank You so much everyone. You have all made me feel so much better. It's been a whole week now but it still feels raw like it was yesterday.
I have another cat called Buffy and she hasn't left my side. I think she can feel my pain, and I think she misses her brother.
Thanks again everyone.
Lots of love

Hello Gus, I just read your mom's post and she is missing you. I wish she could see you now. I wish that she could see you playing with Precious Poo Poo and all the other cats and animals. You are not crying in pain and are enjoying the morsels of tasty grasses and cool fresh water running in the creek. There's plenty of butter flies and pretty birds to watch. You are so happy!
