No, I've had it a while. Never felt the need to post before. I just dislike people that think cats have anything but contempt in their hearts and minds. Sorry, it just didn't care about you.
And as someone else pointed out, you refer to your cat constantly as "it". Weird, for something you care so much about. I don't feel bad at all pointing that out, sorry I'm not sorry.
What was her name ?? My friend has this cute fat cat lol

Then tell me the reason why a cat will sleep in bed with you for many years, and purr like a machine till it falls asleep? That's just wanting food, right?
What the hell kind of thinking is this. Oh f it, everyone is a troll, I don't care.

...just to note, letting your cat out to do whatever the hell it wants is one of the leading causes of songbird decline. Please put your other cats on a leash when they're outside so that the songbirds don't get driven to extinction. It doesn't have to be a TIGHT leash, as long as it keeps the cat on your property and thus not be able to stalk all the birds in other parts of your neighbourhood. I'm sorry if this seems inconsiderate, but it is important if people want to continue seeing songbirds in their neighbourhoods.
Add to that the fact that the only place domestic cats are actually truly intended to be in is Egypt (since that's where they were first domesticated); letting them run amok in ANY other part of the world is akin to letting two fertile frogs of opposite genders from America out into Australia; they're both invasive species that the local ecosystem probably can't handle. Very few introduced species have proven beneficial to the ecosystem, with 99% of those beneficial ones being pollinators. The rest leave local ecosystems in shambles due to not being indigenous to the region and thus shattering the delicate balance of nature.
Again, I'm sorry for your loss. Use this experience to keep your other cats safe though; keep them inside, or if they must go outside put them on (long) leashes so they don't go and kill songbirds or catch nasty parasites/infections.
It's your fault. You let your cat out knowing that it's subject to predators, insane people, diseases, car accidents, etc. You allowed it to prey on other animals and destroy the environment(wildlife), but you didn't care. You could have prevented it's death by keeping it in your house or having very close supervision on it when it was outside. But you didn't. You just allowed to free roam and do whatever the **** it wanted to. Eventually it was going to catch up and now it's gone, and in all honesty, you have yourself to blame.
His cat could have died of old age, you know. He never said one way or another. Outside influence may not have had anything to do with it. Besides, from my own personal experience, it's extremely difficult to keep cats inside the house if you don't live alone.
I have three indoor cats, and all of them make every possible effort they can to go through any door that opens. You open a bedroom door, they try to go through it. You open the garage door, they're already there, trying to squeeze through the opening the very second it cracks open. I myself keep a close eye out and make sure they never get out, but since I don't live alone, they still manage to get out quite often when someone opens the front door and I'm not in the room.
Luckily they (usually) come running back when I whistle for them, even if they're several streets away, but they still get out quite often and there's nothing you can do about it. Berating someone for that isn't even remotely fair when you don't know any of the circumstances behind it. Without finding out all the facts first, you come off as nothing but a bully.
I am going to make myself insane, then!"-me

I can't believe how many here keep their cats locked up indoors like some prison sentence. Talk about cruel. Is it a U.S thing? In the UK cats roam outside all the time.
A dog that is hungry........
whole lot of stupid in this topic, but whatever.
TC, im assuming your cat was old, and wasnt killed by anything, just died from old age. that sucks, sorry for your loss, woke up one morning with my dog dead at the foot of my bed from old age. it sucked, i know what youre going through. i didnt play any games that day, i just sat on the couch and cried basically all day.
but if that cat was killed by something, another animal, a person, a car, it fell from a tree, whatever happened, maybe you should keep your other cat inside. maybe you dont live in the safest part of the world, thats cool, it happens. i dont know you, or the whole situation, i cant say anything for sure, but i know if i were you, id want my other cat to live a longer, healthier life.
