Difficult times

Just to let you know I may not be around very much over the next week.
I'm trying to make the hardest decision of my life, I think you know what it lovely Zoe who is nearly 20 years old. I don't want to sound miserable so I think it's best that I back off for a bit.
Today hasn't been pretty.....god it hasn't even happened yet :(


  1. Oh Joe.....I'm so so sad for you, Your poor little lovely kitty, I know how much you love her.......
    I'll be thinking of you at this time.....with love and ((hugs))

  2. On no sweetie! Sending all my love xxx

  3. My heart goes out to you, it really does. I'm getting upset even as I type this. Lots of love xxxx

  5. Thinking of you Jo and knowing how awful it must be xxx

  6. It must be an awful time for you. 20 is such a good age for a kitty, but they are so part of the family. In a way i was so grateful my baby boy was a gentleman and passed away in his sleep in the sunshine so we didn't have to make such a difficult decision.
    Thinking of you and sending love and hugs.

  7. Aww you poor thing, I dread the day that I have to make a descision like that.
    Thinking of you and sending you a big virtual hug.

  8. Oh how sad for you.
    Sending you hugs and thinking of you x ;-)

  9. I'm so sorry that you are going through this!!! Thinking about you!
    Loving blessings.

  10. thinking of you at this difficult time. Sending lots of hugs and love to you and to Zoe, it must be heartbreaking. Take care, remember we are here for you and if you need a space to be sad, and to let it all out, then that is what you must do here - we've said before, blogs shouldn't necessarily be all happy happy ain't life grand - if it's real then it's about the bad bits as well as the good stuff, and it's about seeking and receiving support through those times as well as shared enjoyment of the fun stuff x x

  11. So sorry Joe that you are having to face this dreadful time. They become members of the family and it is heartbreaking. It helps to talk and when you feel you need support we are all here. xx

  12. I really feel for you, having gone through tis myself a few times. They become loved by us like family. big hugs. suzie xxx

  13. I am so sorry to hear about your news. Sadly I have been there a few times over the years and I understand how heartbreaking it is. I love my cats they are part of the family.

    May you find comfort in family and friends.

    Take care
