Our other cat lived to the fantastic age of 22, and she died from a tumour in her mouth, this was two years ago.

Thats sad... the most I ever lost regarding pets was a black cat named shadow.. it died from cancer.. though I say I can't relate because I didn't like that cat... it liked to scratch me from time to time..

I know exactly how that feels, I cried my eyes out when I lost my dog last summer after 16 years.

Yes, but I was 50+, I wasn't embarrassed though, it was a very dear pet, the home just wasn't the same, he knew the time I got home from work, my wife told me that about 20 minutes before I arrived, the time I left work, he used to jump up on the window sill, & he'd be there when I drove in through the gates.

Wow, what a smart pet.

All my dog used to use was bark and jump whenever a car went down the road.

I know of a dog that is Patch's twin, it belongs to one of the farmer's market stall holders, he's eleven, same breed, same colouration, I shall think of Patch each time I see him now, I know it's early days yet, but are your family thinking of getting another one?
