We've been delaying the inevitable for a while now, but old Luey our 18 year old cat will be put to sleep this morning at 9.15. BD will be there holding him as I will be taking MD to rugby. We've all said out goodbyes and shed rather a lot of tears this morning.

Not a decision we wanted to make one week before our UK trip. One of the cats, we suspected Luey, was peeing and pooing in the house, but I wasn't going to make a decision until we could prove for sure, well BD caught him in the act this morning.

Damn I can't see for bawling! :(

TKP had kindly offered to take him for us for the month we are away and I was happy for that, I even said that should anything happen while we were away then so be it. I realised this morning that I would never have been happy if I hadn't been here to make a decision. He's been very unsteady on his back legs and is often lost and confused sometimes if his yowling is anything to go by.

So that's it, the last of 3, 2 brothers and 1 sister, his brother came with us to NZ. So soon they'll all be together again creating mischief like they used to.

RIP Luey, it won't seem the same without you and who we going to yell at now?

Sorry to hear that MM, But better than under stress-full conditions for him, getting lost or injured...
I dread the day when I have to be brave.

Sorry to hear about Luey MM but it's right that you were the one to make the decision. He'll be out of pain by now and will never be scared or hurt again...

Our thoughts are with you MM. We all know what you're going through.

Sounds like it was the right decision, and at least you aren't going to spoil your holiday by worrying about him...

sorry to here about your Moggy, one of our cats is 18 and you can see it in his back legs. he can't jump much anymore and you must be so careful picking him up.
we let him sleep in an night as the winters would have killed him by now.
i am dreading the time when i have to let him go.
i will try not to get cheesed off anymore when he sits and cries time and time again and he is only a metre away from you, your entry brings it home, he is just getting old.
once again i am sorry to here about your little friend.
