sad to know, he surely had lived a great life filled with love and affection. Its a difficult time to go through cause he was like a kin. Try disttracting yourself from it by listening to music, etc. Its hard to go past through it but you have to if you love your cat otherwise his soul would feel bad if he sees you in sadness. I understand your feelings.... i'm sure my words wont make you feel better cause the loss was unbearable..... I got a poem.
When you lose
someone you love,
life will change,
and everything around you
seems so strange.
The world will spin
in the wrong direction.
You feel alone
and want affection.
Your appetite changes,
you may not sleep,
you don't feel like talking
to anyone you meet.
But as time goes on,
things will get better,
just comes together.
And just because you smile,
it doesn't mean you don't care,
because you know in your heart
that they will always be there.
I'm sorry for your loss, it's hard to find words. the best things I can say is that he had lived a long life, it sounds like it was full of love. it also sounds like he was very sick. old age is never fun, and in many cases, the end is a release.
I found solace when my grandfather passed in the knowledge that he is no longer suffering. hopefully these words bring you some relief as well.
My wife had a cat we adopted from a shelter, and went through something similar. For some people, a pet is a part of the family and, even if you don't pay as much attention as you could, you still love them. The sadness and regret are the same.
There is nothing I can say that will make it better, but I will say this. He had a long life, and was obviously well loved. Your description shows that he knew it too. It will get easier, but I know that doesn't help much now.
Context- My cat had diabetes these past two years, and was about 16 years old. I was there when he was born (parents didn't save the birth date) and over time he stopped eating.Stopped walking to the litter box, and getting himself out. Kidney failure. Possible blindness. With the cost of dialysis being too high and no way to guarantee he would pass in his sleep as it would only extend at best six months, I went to the vet as he was put to rest.
I regret not looking after him more and not spending time with him as much as I could. I see distractions, as I didn't really think about him more than twice a week, though my mother thought the world of him. Even little things, such as him crying whenever she went to work. At the time, I did think it funny that he'd cry because she'd be back. Now I just want to pet him.
I only confess here because it doesn't feel legitimate to share on Facebook, I'd rather confess to strangers because honesty and less investment in reality. Thank you for your time and answers.
