So last Friday (20 May), a week ago today, my family and I said goodbye and goodnight to our beautiful ginger cat Manea who was put down for health reasons. This cat had been in my life since I was 14 years old and to be honest, his death was just as sad as if I had lost a human family member. It was a hard day.
The vet said we were giving him a gift. Letting him slip away peacefully without having to endure pain until the very end. That's not to say it was easy to make the decision to put him down.
For many of us, hopefully all of us that have animals, our pets are a part of the family. We create bonds with them, play with them, cuddle them when we've had a bad day. For me, animals are therapeutic in nature; able to cheer you up on the cloudiest of days. My cat Manea was the apple to my eye and his death has left a huge hole in our family.
Have you ever lost a furry friend? If so, feel free to comment below this post.
