Oh Dawn.  That's so poignant.  As I say to Barley:  Even big girls need their Mammies sometimes.  :hug:   Sending soothing vibes for Tilly. 

Age in cats is a strange business indeed.  I've lost  too many cats at the age of four and under, and I got one to "twenty anna bit" and I can't tell you how startled I was recently to realise Moray is now 5 years old.  It seems like only yesterday that we brought him home, having lost our gorgeous Ross.  And now the gurlies are almost 3.   

Whatever age Tilly is, you've made her recent years far better than she ever expected, bless you and your OH.   :hug:

We let him wander about the house last night and he met his new sister, which went a lot better than I thought it would. They just stared at each other across the room, then Drum went back to her bed and Bruce flopped on the floor and lay there looking at her from several feet away. Neither seemed stressed, and Drum eventually turned her back on him and went to sleep.

When he went back to his room, she came over and sniffed the floor where he'd been lying. I'm trying hard not to humanise her but she really did look a bit peed off!

Lisa, you can get some beautiful urns online.   :hug:

I know it's very early days, but I agree with Paula.  Don't make any hasty decisions about his things.  I must admit to one of Mac's favourite little toys being passed on to Ross, who loved it to bits, and in his turn, left it behind for Moray (who completely ignored it!) :innocent:

You can never ever replace a precious friend.  But what you can do, is open your life to another who needs love and a great home.  And when you do that, you open yourself up to all manner of possibilities you never considered. 

We never thought we'd end up with two semi feral girls.  And yet, we now have our little family of three, and I wouldn't be without any of them.  If anything, the addition of the gurlies has opened my mind to new things and new approaches.

As I say.  Early days yet, and Leo I'm sure will keep an eye on his family.  We also placed Mac and Ross's ashes in pots, one planted with a Rose - Remember Me - a fiery mix of golds like our ginger babies, and one with a native broadleaf oak which I grew from an acorn. 

Thinking of you.   :hug: :hug:

Lukk - if'n he wants to use it as a chin-rest, that's up to him.  Looks to me like he's just laying claim to it:  "S'mine."   ;) :evillaugh:

Glad to hear he's feeling better this morning, bless him.   :)

Yes, he's much better today, thanks. It was my fault, I tried him on some good quality food when he'd been used to Felix, he's back on Felix now and ravenous.
But I don't think he understands how to use a Kicker;

How is Bruce this morning ?  Hope his tummy has settled a bit.

My lovely Trouble, who I had had from birth due to a miscalculation on my part, was PTS just before Christmas coming up 4 years ago is buried in the garden with a lovely white Rosa Rugosa Alba on top of him. I still miss him like crazy, but it DOES get better with time. It is a comfort seeing his rose. He was 18.

I would suggest not throwing his things away, sooner or later, possibly sooner given the age of Robyn, you may consider another cat. It will never replace Leo, but although some cats are very special to us, your heart expands to love another.

Thinking of you both.

there's lots to choose out there Lisa - this is just one site https://www.legendurn.co.uk/pet-cremation-funeral-urns.html

you and Robyn will I think find some relief from your grief in spending time together planning a final send off for Leo - perhaps choosing a special plant too - it's only a brief distraction but as time goes by you will find comfort in doing it properly, and will have photos too to look at

Does anyone know if I can buy my own urn or do I have to choose one from the vets?

Thanks so much everyone.

A zillion things are going round in my head.
All the if's & buts & what if's.

For the past 2 weeks his water fountain, syringes, litter tray, bowls of water all over the house, his meds, were our life line. Now they mean absolutely nothing because he's not here anymore.

I am trying to hold it together for my daughter Robyn but we always called Leo her brother as Robyn was our IVF miracle & we couldn't have anymore.

I'm sorry, I'm rambling..

Just in total shock still I think. I can still smell him. I keep finding his hair on my clothes. I miss him so much 😭😭😭😭
