The night spotty passed away

I had a lovely old cat called spotty. He died 12:10am 2/1/22. He suddenly got sick, his leg swelled up, the vet didn’t know what it was, then he just gave up the ghost.

Dad cried for 3 minutes when Spotty died. We gave the corpse to the cat cremation organization, where we will get Spotty’s ashes.

It is very disconcerting, as it makes me feel the bereavement I will eventually feel when my own parents pass away. I will definitely miss mom and dad. It took so long and so much mental health treatment before I could finally honour my mother and father.

Spotty was a nice white cat with black streamed across him in various parts of his body. He would pat my leg when I was feeling mentally unwell. We don’t know how old he was when he died. He came from my grandma’s house, and we got him when grandma passed away.

He came over to grandma’s house in the late 2000s with the mother cat, who gave birth to a few of the remaining cats at my house. We have 7 cats left. 2 have died. Pet bereavement is horrible, and it is even worse when a loved one passes away.

Pray for my dad and my family, we are going through pet bereavement now.

  1. Hi James,
    It’s definitely hard when you loose a beloved pet. I have lost two dogs a family cat, and a lovely cat that my ex wife and I purchased together at a pet shop.
    Our pets play say such a important role in our lives. We only realise when there gone, and have left us for the next life.
    We experience pain loss and sorrow when they die. I was looking for something to feel the void, but nothing can replace the special pet we hold dear to our hearts.
    They show unconditional love to us, and only break our hearts when they pass.
    Wishing you and your family healing for the loss of your pet cat. ⚘

    1. Thank you, dear brother. I am coping. I only cry when my dad cries over the loss of spotty. My dad has isolated himself in the community because he is anxious to go outside the house. But my mom cares for him.
