To every thing there is a season

My cat, Dave, died peacefully and with dignity this morning at 9:01 am. He knew that he was loved and that he would wake up again in a far, far better place. He was my constant companion for 14-1/2 years, seeing me through my divorce, cuddling with me when no one else wanted to, and saving me when I didn't want to be saved. He will be missed.

Aww, I'm so sorry about your cat. Mine was 17 when he died, and I still miss him terribly. Our pets are just as much a part of our lives as our human friends, and often the pets are a lot more loving. My sympathies. And a big hug.

I'm so sorry Denise. I am picturing Dave together with my cats in kitty heaven, running through fields of catnip and chasing butterflies.
