    My little cat chequie died today from cancer of the osephagus. I nursed her to the end and she was as comfortable as I could make her. This morning I wiped over any dirty fur with a wet cloth and her little bottom then dried with a dry one and then gave her a good brushing.

    She has been unable to clean herself for a long time because the hairs would get onto the tumour and make her sick. She stopped eating three weeks ago and lived on milk. In the mornings I would wet her nose then wait for a few minutes for the dried milk to soften and then rub it off

    I am so glad she died naturally without the terror of a strange person coming and putting her down or even worse going to some horrible smelling, noisy clinic, she was terrified of vets.

    She was my friend and companion for eleven years. She got cancer from chewing her comfort blanket. Unfortunatly I did not realize that fabric softner contains seven carcinogens and did'nt rinse it after the wash.

    She died outside in a shaded place on a lovely day.

    I am so very, very sorry for your loss. Our fur kids mean so much to us and when they go they really do break our hearts :( You have obviously been there for her when she has most needed you so please do try and take some comfort in that and hopefully the day will come when you can remember her with smiles instead of tears.

    She was a very beautiful girl wasn't she, such a soft and gentle look in her eyes.

    I'm so sorry it must have been really hard, but it sounds like you did the very best for her, and as you said at least she went peacefully and had someone who she loved and trusted with her.
    There isn't anything I can say to make you feel better but I just wanted to let you know that I (and probably everyone here) really feels for you, people who don't have pets just don't know what it is like to loose a fury member of the family!

    Thank you all for your very kind words which I appreciate.

    A few minutes ago I buried chequie infront of my kitchen window which looks out on the mountainsde rising above. I set a stone that looks like a cat over her as you see in the photo. So I will be reminded of her in the long winters.

    Kind regards to all.

    Sara.

    I'm so sorry for your loss Sara :(. Chequie looks like she was a real cutie.

    I'm pleased it was a peaceful end and she was in the place where she'd felt so much love.

    I'm so sorry for your loss Sara :(

    Have you some cats in Heaven Lord?
    Is there room for just one more?
    My little cat died today,
    She'll be waiting by your door.

    Please take her into Heaven Lord,
    And keep her there for me.
    Just feed her, stroke her, love her Lord,
    That's all she asked of me.

    I know words are inadequate at a time like this, but as the pain eases a little you will look back and feel comforted by the way you looked after her and were there for her right to the end. Run free at the bridge, little chequie - and sending big cyber hugs to you sara x
