We visited him again today and while the results are still not in the vet said he is so sick it would be best to put him down now rather than wait a whole weekend before any results come back. We played together for about 30 minutes until he went to sleep and then had the vet put him down. I then buried him in the garden with a lavender shrub on top.

I talked to the vet about showing his brother and they said yes as he will then know what happened. He spent about 10 minutes sniffing him all over and looking at us but seems a lot calmer tonight, I guess it was good for him to know rather than walking around the house looking and calling out for him like he has the last few nights.

It still seem so close to the other cat passing and so young for this poor little guy.

So sorry Chris.

You did the right thing in showing his brother - that will make a real difference to him.

Thanks everyone. I feel sad and while I know he had a good life playing in trees in our garden with his brother and being utterly spoilt with steam chicken thigh fillets, baked salmon or grilled steak for dinner I feel he deserved a lot longer than he got.

His brother is still out of sorts a bit with a sad look on his face, but not walking around calling for him so I am sure showing him his dead brother was the right thing,

Hopefully Sean Connery will give him a pat for me.

Sorry for your news Chris. Actually choked is more apt. We have had lots of cats over the last 21 years and every single time we lose one it breaks our hearts. Two of our current four are getting older so we know what to expect and, like you, will always put them and their health before anything else on this earth no matter what the cost. Every move house wise we have made has always been subject to suitability for cat safety.
Myself and Lady HB are both with you and your good lady at the mo.

Reading some of these stories had tears welling up......

I had to put down my 17 yr. old cat, Jasper, this past July, and I miss him terribly. He is the last of a long line of cats over the past 30+ years. I don't
believe I will acquire another, as at my age, and I live alone, it would be a week before anyone found me and in the meantime the cat would be getting hungry......

People who don't have a cat can't really understand what a cat does to your life, other than your life revolves around the cat.
I talked to my cats all the time, had arguments with them and lost the argument! I've said this was the last cat, but......we'll see.

Cheers,

Dave.
