Convince me /b/, why I shouldn't be sad that my cat I've had for sixteen years, is probably goin to die within a few hours. she was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism about 2 years ago, but since has gotten better thanks to some medication. About 2 weeks ago, she starts to lose some serious weight, used to be 9 pounds, is now under 4. Have to stick IV in her to give lactated ringers. Not showing signs of progress. Only lays in her little kitty bed. starts peeing in the bed, manages to make it under grandmas bed and pee under there. been 3 days and she hasn't used bathroom, just lays in bed. Can't walk anymore, think hearing and vision are starting to go. Wake up at 3 in the morning today to go to the bathroom to find her waiting to be let in. I go grab kitty bed from grandmas room. Put her and the bed on my bed, go to sleep whilst petting her and watching YouTube with her. Have to go to work, say bye, she looks me in the eye and tries to meow, but is so weak she can't, I cry on way to work. Come home and she is just barely breathing laying on her back and eyes closed. She's very cold. I just need someone to console me, and of all places, I;m not sure why I came to /b/ for that. pic related. mitty when she was healthy about a year ago
wow, decent lifespan for the cat. my parents ended up going through 3 well cared for cats in the same timeframe. I wish I could give my way of dealing, but each time one of them died, I was off in another state.
Then hold that cat, OP. Let her know you're there in her last moments. Wait a while before getting a new cat though, otherwise you'll just try to make another Mitty and that's just not fair.
You have my condolences though.
I feel so sad for you and your kitten. But that is life anon, you must not forget that she is only a mortal being. It must have had a wonderful life if she lived to be that old. You did a good job keeping her healthy for so long, most cats are not near as lucky. She was very lucky to be your pet anon. I hope your heart mends soon
Been there. It sucks. You loved the cat. She's probably in a coma now and will be gone when you wake up.
I've had a few cats and put one down, and let two die at home, and both are bad. Remember what she felt and sounded like.
I'm sorry OP.
Even our best friends get sick...
Just keep showing her love until you are the last thing she see tomorrow at the humane society
Do it for her
I am so sorry anon this makes me tears up.
I can watch people getting beheading and feel good but i can't do this to cats.
You should be talking to her in her last minute and let her know that you are here while holding her instead of browsing this shithold like people like me.
your cat looks like someone i know from kid's too.
I wish I could do something else for you /b/ro
Just be there for her and pet her.
Putting her down might be the better option if she is suffering, however putting her through the stress of caging her and bringing her to the vet and all that might just make it worse.
Just be there for her. She knows you love her and she will pass peacefully knowing so.
Fuck I'm tearing up a little.
It's going to be alright.
Losing a pet is hard. Sorry /b/ro. Lost my dawg of 15 years last Fall and I still sometimes think about stupid shit she sometimes did.
Don't worry, it's gon b k OP. It's gon be k.
I dont know if its better that all my cats one day just didnt come back from the outdoors and were probably ran over by a car or something ... I mean I cried, but it was never as intense as this ...
serously, fuck off from my thread.
I feel insulted by you, i am not here to look for whore, either lurk like an anon does or fuck off
You don't get special treatment cause you have 2 fuckign tons of fat on your body.
tl;dr fuck off from my thread
here's mitty right now in her little kitty bed. have towel on her to keep her warm because she feels very cold as i mentioned
Sorry OP. Ive been in that situation before.
16 years is a great life.
It makes you feel empty inside for a while, but it gets better. Get a kitten, it does a world of good for you. All the best.
Sorry about your loss op
I've had my kitty for 6 months and I love him to death
Was gift from gf
Can't stand the thought of me losing him
Wish you the best
My condolences op
Pic related its kitty named Jon
well then I hope you cat chokes to death on her own saliva and seizes out until she shits herself to death and lets out the most horrifying and agonizing scream you have ever heard as she lets out her final breaths that haunt you for the rest of your life :33
Listen, im not trying to be a dick- cats are my favorite fucking thing in the entire world- but i hope to god you arent actually giving the LRS via IV. ITS sub cutaneous. Also did you get its thyroid lvls re checked? Could just need a different dose. Your car is probably going into kidney failure tho. Thats how most cats go out at old age. Sorry to hear
Had to euthanize the mrs' cat a few months ago, 18 human years so good run... she tried to outrun the dog to get on balcony for exercise but age caught up with her, so did the dog (labrador/border collie) busted poor cats mouth open, after that she was too sore in the mouth to eat, blood and what we later found out was an infection, explaining the smell, few chipped teeth, had to take her to vet... vet was pretty much across the road, I know she could sense something was wrong, even did a runner and hid in the storm water drain, apparently the dog busted open a tumor in her mouth and got double infected, nothing could be done, bawwed my eyes out like a massive he bitch...
No idea why im going on, I guess have her looked at and prepare for the worst
It's just a fucking cat. An obviously miserable cat. It doesn't leave it's bed or eat because it's waiting to die. That's really the only reason they do that. If a fucking cat can accept it's own death, then you should also have the clarity and maturity to do so.
I've had cats my whole life, but I will never understand how people can be so emotionally invested in them. It doesn't understand or reciprocate your love in any recognizable capacity and you should feel silly. You were just a warm body that fed it and rubbed it's belly.
Bumping with dead cats for OP!
OP, how does it feel knowing your precious mittens is going to look like this soon??
>didn't even see this
HOLY SHIT op really is a faggot
You could always sell her body to the chinese
while you may have had cats all your life, you clearly are not a cat person. my cat shows love. he is very affectionate. he snuggles with me every night. and he is always wanting to be near me. seriously. he will follow me around my apartment sometimes
Look at the fear in it's eyes, anon.
Do you think this is how mittens will feel?
I feel you OP, except it's a Shih Tzu I've had for 14 years, and tomorrow will mark the 14th year I've had him. Poor guy is slowing down; he got hit by a car about 9 years ago now and has hip problems that are starting to make him drag.
Went through a lot of abuse and neglect by my family and this little motherfucker was the only one around for miles to hug all while giving me that "It'll be ok" look with his big eyes.
Last thing I want is for my poor dog to be suffering; I made the call a few years ago to put him down if he starts hurting too much and I think we've reached that point.
With that being said, OP you're a fag. Someone wants to help out and you just throw it in their face. Playing games like some overly autistic kid who hates it when people help out when you cry ab out it.
Hyperthyroidism is caused from drinking water with Fluoride in it. I assume you've been letting your cat drink from the tap so you're the reason you're cat's going to die. You should be ashamed of yourself OP. Learn to take care of an animal or a human being for that matter because it's highly probable that you drink from the tap too.
I've felt your pain. But from that description it seems like, as hard as it is, it's time to do the just thing for your friend and put her out of her misery.
If you had one more painful week in this world, would you rather your family keep you alive on a 1% chance you made it another year, or would you rather die with dignity?
Nows your fucking chance!
Fly him to the heavens!
Everything and everyone dies, including you. Isn't that the last thing you want, to cause pain when you leave? Be glad that someone loves you enough to be crushed that you're gone, so ask them before you leave to celebrate that you don't have to live anymore. Tell them to cry for themselves... Yea, that's probably what your pet's thinking.
Some real basement dwelling edgelords ITT
Sorry for your loss tho OP, I've never had a pet but my friend did give me this dog he found when i was 12. my family said you have to let it go because it had diseases and shit. It was a thunderstorm and i was forced to let it go out there alone. I cried for like 2 hours even though i knew him for only less than a week
>let it go
>LET IT GOOO
>be one with the wind and skyyyyYY
OP still here?
Or is he crying himself to sleep like the faggot he is?
I was 12 at the time
Id rather be a faggot than some basement dwelling virgin NEET who has nothing better to do than post pictures of dead pets on an anonymous image board all night just to piss random people off
ouch my feels you got me right in them!
Oh, my cat's about to turn 16, and he has hyperthyroidism too, and was diagnosed last year. I imagine he's going to die soon, but cat lifespans are about that long, so what will you do.
I imagine he'll make it another year, though, since he can still jump off chairs, but he's drastically slowed down over the last 2 months.
I bet you were the same little autistic kid in school who sat in the cafeteria all by himself playing pokemon on his little nintendo and never fucking changed clothes
This is the only place where u can even probably engage in a conversation with someone i bet. Fucking faggot
OP is back.
Timestamp maybe in a little bit.
Mitten is gone, i think.
I will let me lay down by me on my pillow let she used to when she was a kitty, she loved it like that.
Tomorrow i think i will bury her outback in the garden ( i live in an apartment building, has our own garden and bbq area and pool) and let her rest there.
Somehow i feel like going to church even though i haven't since high school.
I am gonna take a short nap, maybe mitten is still waiting for her night time cuddles.
random cat gif here
You know, I've never been on this side of the fence, and now I see why trolls troll.
This is fucking funny as shit.
Real OP here. Mitty* is still alive, any post claiming to be OP that doesnt have a picture of mitty is not real.
I think i am going to try and force feed it some milk? She really hated milk but it's good for cats.
We are watching don't hug me i am scared on youtube together, my boyfriend is coming over to spend time with me.
no tits, i am a male.
Been there OP, i feel for you, watched one of my old cats die slowly from cancer and one from a sudden blood clot just as we came home from a family trip. Cliche but just remember all the good times you had with Mitty, nothing will ever take your happy memories from you
good. Burry her deep or wild scavengers will dig her up.
Maybe a nigger will bbq her up
I don't think cats are supposed to drink milk. At least, not the milk humans drink. It's okay for kittens, from what I recall, but older cats shouldn't drink milk.
I could be wrong though, Googling is a good idea.
Yea mine do that too. They all do.
Because cats, like most animals, like warmth and being petted and fed.
You're delusional if you think that's anything but an extremely watered down version of the love that a human is capable of feeling.
I'm absolutely a cat person, but I also understand the limitations of an animal with a brain that's hardly more complex than a lizards. A cat would not throw itself in front of a bullet to save you. Neither would a dog or a giraffe.
It wouldn't even skip a meal for your sake if it could understand the concept.
OP here, will not be making any posts in this thread until Mitty passes
>force feeding it
dude, it's DEAD. You can't make it better.
I hope you choke it to death for being this fucking retarded.
>don't hug me I'm scared
pic fucking related
le-kekkles you said 9fag hehehe SO FUNNY bananna maymay
Break her neck if she's in too much pain to move/eat/drink/meow. A quick snap of the neck should do it. Had to do that to my old cat a few years back; not gunna lie, it won't be pretty, and you'll feel like shit right after, but it's best for the both of you in the long run.
I mean no hate or disrespect, and I'm not trolling, either. You have my sincerest condolences, anon, and may Mitty rest in peace.
Better if you have a gun. quick and painless.
Ops probs a pussy and would fuck it up, leaving the spine only half severed and -
you know what?
yeah op, snap it's neck
I feel for you OP. It's nothing short of losing family or a best friend. Take your time with grieving, you'll need it. But just know it gets better. And your beloved feline friend will no longer be suffering. About a month ago my kitten passed at about 5 months old so I can relate. I'm a 20 year old man and I cried my eyes out. Nobody can know the love you felt for your friend. And anyone who says "oh its just a cat" and to get over it obviously have very little amounts of compassion for life. You're not alone, /b/rother.
Holy this dude. take the cat to a vet tomorrow and give your best pal a sendoff...
It's time. Think about the best memories and say goodbye.
It's what the majority would want for ourselves
Hard but true... sounds like you were a great person to her OP
You should be sad. Animals, much like humans have vibrant personalities, and we can know them just as well as we know other humans. As an atheist, I believe that friendship is when our neurons become so accustom to working a certain way when someone is around, that our neurons begin to anticipate it. We start to crave it, as well. This is not restricted to humans. The point is, I understand, from personal and objective experience, that we can love animals just as much as our own friends. I can only begin to imagine how much you must care for that cat. I actually teared up reading the post. Just know that she won't be feeling anymore pain, and that, while it may suck for a while, you will get better, and move on. Good luck, /b/ro. I hope you're okay.
sorry bro I've had lots of my family cats die, it sucks and I cry everytime. Hopefully this cheers you up a bit.
was starting to run out of cats. thanks faggot
Oh yes onii-chan!
M-make sure not to use lube either!
All the life in the universe is connected
So it's not your cat dyin, but a part of you too
On the other part, he will live forever in your mind
I know it sounds cliche, but it's true
Life is impermanent. We are all just transient patterns in the fabric of the cosmos. Enjoy experiences while they last, remember them, but don't cling too strongly to the past and to what is inherently short-lived. Your cat had a better life than it would have had on the streets. That's as much as can be done. If you want, get another cat afterward; give it a good life, too. Life goes on.
Yeah and just like I can google conspiracy theories about 9/11 there are lots of conspiracy sites on the dangers of Fluoride. 99 percent of studies don't find a problem with Fluoride when it is within the safe limits. Sure you can site the same 3 papers that say there may be some evidence and ignore the majority of research that disagrees but then that would make you credulous person.
Go back to le reddit you edgy fucking cunt. I see you like watching small animals being tortured, enjoy juvenile hall and disappointing your parents you fucking potential school shooter.
OP, sorry. Look at it this way:
I would give anything to have been with my cat when she was 16 and dying. She disappeared at 9 because I was stupid. I didn't know how dangerous our new neighborhood was with coyotes. That was about 7 years ago. She would be 16 now. I have lived all this time with no idea what her fate was. I searched the area for weeks, and I even hired a scent tracking dog. I will never know what happened to her. She was one of the loves of my life.
Your cat was very lucky to make it to 16. Be proud you gave her such a long life.
She's gone /b/. I'm not sure exactly when she passed, but it was in the last 15 minutes. I heard take one of those sharp breaths and didn't think much of it, but while I was petting her, she took her last breath and I hope she remembered all the good times we had growing up together. The ride home and how excited I was to have a kitty. My first day of school and trying to take her with me, I hope she enjoyed all of it. I've never lost anybody close to me and I just don't know how to feel. I hope she forgives me for not doing more for her. Thank you everyone that had kind words to say. R.I.P. Mitty
I feel so sad you're gonna through this terrible time & 4chan fags are horrible. Definitely should of posted this in a different page were you could share how you feel and what's going on without these fags ruining it
