We put Samba down on Saturday

and now it's just all sad.


She had cancer, and it was time, but it's still super super sad.

and our household is all weird now.  You take for granted all the ways in which your pets impact your life on a daily basis - well, I did.  And now it's just empty and strange and sad.

And our cat is driving me crazy.  She is looking for the dog, doesn't like any doors to be closed, seems weirdly high maintenance and then - sadly -spends time staring at the front door like the doggy is out on a playdate and coming back soon.

The whole house feels uncomfortable and bad and sad.  I'm not a dog person, I don't particularly like dogs, but she was the most wonderful amazing dog ever.  Super cute, super smart, super protective, probably the perfect dog (yeah, every dog owner thinks that).

I didn't think I would miss her much, but I miss her terribly and I am sad.

  • I am so so sorry to hear that! It's always hard losing a pet, no matter what the circumstances. I hope you (and your poor kitty) start feeling better soon.
  • i'm sorry for your loss! my thoughts are with you.

  • Sad

    I'm sorry. That is so sad.

  • I'm so very, very sorry for your loss!! :-( 

    I had to make the same decision for my kitty who had cancer, almost 22 months ago.  Yeah, I still keep track and it does hurt to lose a part of the family.  My other cat spent about 2 weeks looking for her before she settled into the new dynamic.

  • I was so sad to hear this.  I can't imagine the loss of a pet, and can only imagine what it must be like.  I hope you find some peace in your home soon and that your kitty settles some too.
  • I am so, so sorry.  I think with each new day it will hurt a little bit less.
  • Pets are such an important part of our lives.  I'm so sorry for your loss.  It's amazing how much one little animal can become so important and so loved.
