Patch - R.I.P



This past weekend was a tough one. I had to make the painful decision to put one of my cats to sleep. He was only 11 and cancer had ripped through him pretty fast. I had no clue. He was fine one day and then BOOM..
I know the right choice was made. But it was indeed a tough one. So appreciate your pets. Shit does indeed happen. More goods soon to come. Not really in a musical mood right now. Keep checking back..

One,
NGE

i remember losing my cat of 17 years that i got on my 5th birthday. he was like my best friend i had no siblings at home so he was it. He had cancer too. It hurt bad but time heals all. My deepest regards to you fam.

my condoleances. hope you'll have a new cat or kitten nonetheless!
I myself fear for our oldest, he has turned 20 and is getting dement and physically weak...
all the best & peace, E-mile

sending you some nice vibes. pets rule. they are not thinkers and don't have points of view, we can learn a lot from the animals.
peace

Sorry to hear about your cat. I've had to do the same and it's truly like losing a family member. My dog, Jasz, is very close to my family and even neighbors. I appreciate the work you do to post wonderful things for us, and will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Beautiful cat. Cats are great pets. We have three and just had to keep to keep the 2 kittens my bro dropped off. We still have fond sad memories of friends from many years ago. Grieve and find a new companion when the time is right.

So sorry about your loss. We had to make that tough decision about our 17 yr old orange tabby a few years ago, and it's never, ever easy. May peace be to you and yours.

That's totally sad...every time my cat meows I'm afraid it's 'cause he's got some incurable disease that's just now manifesting itself...so I totally understand where you're coming from & 11 is waaaaaay too young for any living thing to pass on...but at least s/he heard lottsa great music!

condolence. it looks a beautiful cat, feeling at ease with records. its soul, like the soul of music, is unextinguishable.

What a painful decision. I wish you all the time and support you need to properly grieve.

I'm with you. My beloved cat Bushy passed away a few weeks ago. Was very sudden and very difficult to deal with.

All the best, a fellow cat lover.
