    Lost Lydia


    Lydia the tattoed lady, our 20 yr old silver and black tiger striped cat, passed away from her second stroke today. Even though, maybe especially because she was such an old kitty, we are missing her terribly. She has been part of us for so long. dpp

    I am so sorry for both of you. I still mourn my Alaskan Malamute from 10 years ago, a very special guy, so I know exactly how you feel. Big ((hugs)) to you both. ~Sharon~

    I, too, am sorry about the loss of your cat. I still think about my cat I lost about 12 years ago. They are very much part of the family.

    Doris, I am so very sorry to hear about Lydia... I know from experience just how horribly painful that is; our pets are truly family members, and are loved - and missed - just the same.

    RealtorGal, Im really sorry to hear about your loss as well.

    My thoughts are with both of you. Please take care.

    Doris, I am so sorry to hear about Lydia. I really enjoyed reading your story about her...always nice to hear about a cat rescued and then lives happily for many more years. I was telling my 8-year old daughter about "Lydia's Story" the other day, she was touched by the rescued cat who was now 20...my thoughts are with you...

    All these pets dying, it is so sad. I guess the one benefit of living longer than your pets is that you are able to love and enjoy many of them during your lifetime...each unique, each carrying lasting memories...

    Lost Lydia


    I know I'm new on the board, but Doris I am very sorry for your loss, and RealorGal for yours as well.

    My cat Veruca is 13 - I hope we are lucky enough to have 7 more years together! - but the devastation I felt when she was lost for 3 days a few years ago has tipped me off that I'll be a wreck whenever it's time to say goodbye.

    Peace and well wishes to you both.

    Sorry Doris:( , i have cats too, and just lost one about a year ago. I know how hard it is. Was she at home or the vet when she passed?

    She was at the vets. She had the stroke a week ago, but since it was the second stroke, there was too much brain damage, and we had to have her put to sleep. She couldn't walk. After the 1st stroke she got the ability to walk back, but this time she didn't, and would keep walking in confused very tight circles, tripping over her paws every few steps.

    Doris, so sorry to hear (or read) you lost your pet and the others who have lost theirs. I think we lost 5 dogs over the years. Never had a cat. It really is heartbreaking. Hope you're feeling better by now. It takes time.

    Doris,
    So sorry to hear that Lydia died. What a life she had; I'm glad you wrote about her. When they get that disabled, it's so sad. You don't want to see them suffer but you don't want to see them go either. I know it doesn't make you feel any better, but you were lucky to have a cat with Lydia's personality and love for 20 years. Some friends gave me a kitten in college and this cat and I just never connected. He was a cat, that's it. Among the many other cats we had, a few had personalities that made you feel as if they could really read your mind, as if they were talking to you. Clearly Lydia was the latter and that's a special thing to have had in your life. It doesn't make it any easier when they pass on, though. I'm so sorry.
