Your welcome . Some times it's nice too talk about it. I had a orange tabby cat that whould just come up and lay on you no matter who you wher or what you where doing. Then to my surprise to find out he had CAT AIDS that was sad.

Little, not quite fully mature, domestic shorthair alley cat, black with small tufts of white.
Only a few months after starting to let him go out on his own, he came up to my room one afternoon, extremely weird for any of my pets to do, and snuggled with me for awhile then he left my room.
Found him passed on in the basement later that day. I knew something was up when he came to my room.

Owned the longest before death: We had a cat that I can't even remember the original name of, we just called her mama cat because of the number of kittens she had. Dies in a fire about six years ago when the wiring on the dryer malfunctioned and burned down the house, her body was never found but since everything was locked nobody thinks she could have lived. The same fire took a Rottweiler we had had for four or five years, who died from smoke inhalation and is buried next to the place where he died.

That is probably the worst thing that can happen to your pets. Im soory for your loss of pets and your home. Also that is one thing I fear about my pets.

The puppies and the kitties always had the worse deaths though, like once when we were little me and my brother accidentally squashed a puppy with a canoe, and 2 Christmases ago our dog Wally, who was 12 years old at the time, was caught in a fire and died. The worst thing about it was that 1. He probably could have escaped if he had woken up in time since it was just in this little ole shed outside and 2. I was still awake when it happened so if I had looked outside I could have saved him.
The worst of my dead kitten stories would have to be the time something got a hold of one of my kittens and ripped its stomach open but didn't kill it so my dad drowned it to put it out of its misery, the cat that ran out in front of the lawn mower, Nix who the aformentioned Wally got a hold of and broke her poor neck, and Oreo the little kitten I accidentally smothered in my sleep.
But I think that's all of the really bad stories.

He was a snow white Maltese and lived with us for 12 years. As time went by, we noticed that he was coughing a lot for apparently no reason, so we took him to the vet. The vet told us that my dog had developed a chrono-degenerative heart condition which caused his heart to grow bigger with time, and eventually it would crush his trachea and he would die of suffocation.
My dog survived for another year or so before complications arrived and he passed away.
Even now I still half-expect to see him come rushing to the front door every time I arrive home.

I also had a dog named Jake who had a cancerous tumour. The vet removed it, and everything was supposed to be hunky-dory (we caught it pretty early), but of course, it wasn't. I have some sweet/sad pictures of him with his leg bandaged up and wearing my dad's oversized sweater (to protect from his scratching). We let the cancer run it's course until it hurt him, and then put him down

The dog died when I was very young from choking on a toy.
Cat died a few years ago. She was... put down.
- 13 October 2012 - 08:25 AM
Well, that's my list of dead. Lots of tears and misery were had by all.
- 13 October 2012 - 09:29 AM
You mean suffocation... right?
- 13 October 2012 - 09:35 AM
All I remember is that he was dead inside his nesting ball, his head sticking out the end with his eyes bulging more than usual. I mentioned this to my Mom today and she figures he just died like that, as he wasn't stuck in it when she pulled him out. I assumed he gotten too chunky from lack of movement because of the cast he had to wear around his mid-section and got stuck... Either way, it was still a little disturbing.
Sorry, I assumed the worst when I saw him all those years ago, I should have looked into it a little more before posting

To this day five of the cats are presumed dead, especially Cuddles and Sparkles who would be around sixteen by now. Timmy is confirmed dead. Zena was the only cat that lived, she is around 11 1/2 years old and is a fat cat with a shriveled up ear.
Sparkles(mother cat), from left to right; Tina, Timmy, Theodore, Thumbelina.
May they all rest in peace.

The first cat I had was a calico I found whith my grandparents at a corner store. She had a few litter's and then she disappeared. Rite before she disappeared the neighbors divorced and the husband sent him self down a path of self destruction. Some time paset and he got arrested and that was the last we heard or saw him. We went down to the house with his x wife to help clean the house and yard up. Wen the time came to clean the above ground pool we found about 3 or 4 dead cats floting around in the pool. We believe this was her fate .

The only one that I know for sure is dead, is our second dog, Villi. He was epilectic, apparently, and had to be put down. I still have his collar on display in my room.

My chocolate lab, Copper, was a 2-year old pound rescue that I had when I was 2. She was the most loyal, protective dog I've ever had. She died of natural causes at age 14.
Ace was some kind of rat terrier mutt that we found hiding out in our shed without a collar and no signs of being previously owned. We took him in, gave him a much-needed bath and a proper dinner. It only took him a couple of days to start acting like he was the best thing to grace our pathetic existences. A few years after that, the neighborhood psychopath drove by and shot damn near every dog he could find that wasn't his own. He ended up killing the neighbor's basset hound and seriously wounding our Ace. He recovered for a while and seemed to be doing well, but then he began to get weaker. We took him in to the vet and they said that his body was destroying his red blood cells faster than he could produce them, even a blood transfusion wasn't enough to sustain him, so we had to put him down.
After Ace, we got a black miniature schnauzer named Maggie. She was a rather spoiled, controlling dog (typical schnauzer). We had her for about 5 years before she developed the same anemic disease that killed Ace. When we took her in to be put down, I stayed with her and held her as the vet administered the injection. It really hit me hard after feeling her life slip away in my arms. I could never forget it.
Of the cats, the most notable death would have to be my very first cat, Misty. She was black, very friendly, and loved to eat. All of our cats were outdoors because my dad is allergic. Every year, we had to lock her away in a room on Halloween due to the superstitious mor(m)ons in our community. One morning, a neighbor let his two rottweilers roam around town unsupervised and they came by our place and literally tore Misty apart.
All of my rats lived somewhat brief lives and I loved every single one of them. Ralph was my very first rat that I had when I was about 7 or 8 years old. He developed a malignant tumor in his neck and had to be put down. My next rat was an albino by the name of Tom. I got him in early 2010 and he only lived for about a month. I think he may have been sick since he was born because he never did seem too peppy like rats normally are. Shortly after Tom, I got another pair of rats. One was black-hooded (Harry) and the other blond (Draco). Despite being of the same litter, they started to fight after about a year, so I had to separate them. I had to leave them under my parents' care while I was gone to South Korea for my job and Draco ended up getting weaker to the point that he could hardly move, so he had to be put down. He lived for 2 years. Harry lived about 6 months longer before he became crippled and went blind. Once he started to waste away, I put him out of his misery.
My chicken was quite special to me. Her name was Hawkeye and she was a brown araucana that would lay almost a dark olive colored egg, like a cross between green and brown. She was so friendly and used to human contact that she wouldn't fuss when picked up (she actually enjoyed it). After about 5 years, she went blind in one eye, but she could still get around just fine. A year later, the other eye went blind. She would come to the sound of my voice whenever I would call to her, hoping for some extra food. She ultimately died of old age. Of all the chickens my family has had over the years, Hawkeye was my favorite.
Off-topic: it's been just over 8 months since I last made a post!
