If you read this entry from a couple days back, you know my cat, ACC, was sick and I was worried we'd lose him soon. If you read my response to comment about it, you'll know we thought he might be gonna be okay afterall.

He didn't get better.

Yesterday my mom took him tot he vet, the vet said that it may ahve been a bad tooth (which ahd since come out) hurting him that caused him to lose weight and he may have an infection. So she gave us antibiotics for him.

Yesterday afternoon, I walked home because I wanted to see him as soon a spossible, not almsot 3 hours after I got off work. He wa sin the bathtub, drinking from the dripping faucet, and I sorta teased him about being soaking wet and slipping in the tub, and then later he stumbled while moving on my mom's bed and I teased again. Now I think he had a small stroke sometime between my mom seeing him at lunchtime and me getting home.

This morning my mom woke me up early to tell me he not only wasn't better, but he could barely lift his head. So I got dressed and came out to sit with him for the next 45 minutes or so, petting him and holding him and watching him try to get up but not be able to.

Mama took me to work, then took him straight to the vet. When our vet looked at him, she told mama that his heart was barely beating, and she thought he might have had a stroke, and that's why he couldn't get up.

Mama had him put to sleep so he wouldn't suffer. And I of course agree with that decision, the last thing I wanted was for him to suffer.

Almost 4 years ago (May 24th, 2005) we lost our poor sweet Meja, who was my dog, and now we've lost ACC, who was my cat... They were the oldest, so of course we lsot them first, but... the dog we currently have is clearly mama's half the time I'm lucky to get a glance when we get home form work he's so excited that she's home. One of our remaining cat's barely tolerates me but loves mama. The other cat doesn't prefer anybody beyond whoever's willing to love on her when SHE wants to be loved on.

ACC was the only one who ever cuddled with me when I was sick and needed comfort and he's gone.

I won't be uploading the songs for my 2nd Lyrical ficlets thing, or posting the explainations. I may not respond to comments for a while either, though I'm gonna try because otherwise... I really don't wanna start sinking but I'm scared I will.

Oh, Mara! *hugs*

I'm so SO sorry. I don't know if you remember, but almost a year ago, I lost my 15 year old cat, Marble. The pain of losing a pet, a member of your family, is so great.

I wish that I could do something to help. Just know that I care, and I'm thinking about you, and I'm so sorry, and I understand.

*hugs*

When I say I know exactly how you feel, I know exactly how you feel. I still miss the one I nicknamed 'One Really Good Cat' who died 16 years ago.

{{{hugs}}}

So sorry about your cat. It hasn't been that long since my Basia died, although I still have her brother (the real Zbyszko) and my cuddler cat Finn.

Lots of hugs.
