Here's a great way to get to know your neighbors... "Hi there. We live down the street, and our 17 year old cat is gone. We think she went off to hide and die. Do you mind if we dig through all the bushes in your backyard and try to find our dead cat????" Six yards later and still no Squeeky. An old lady from the church says that she had probably done a mighty fine job of hiding herself.

F'n sucks! I'm not an emotional person, but I'm a wreck. Never had a pet so long, and have never been a 'cat person' but I'll certainly learn to sympathize with others when their family is going what we're going through.

Geez... It's only a cat, right?????????


not after 17 years man. i lost my cat of 18 years last year. tough tough time. good luck in your search.

Wow a year and half! 8-o I wonder where it was that whole time, traveling? :-b


Not sure, never could get her to 'fess up where she'd been, lol - like I said she was really shy but maybe eventually she let someone take her in and then eventually took off again - didn't look like she'd been living in the wild all that time though.

How did the SPCA know she was yours? Did she have a microchip or something? :-?


Ear tatoo from our vet.

Not looking forward to the day, which must be very close now, when our dog moves on. My wife and daughter are going to take it really hard, which is not going to make my life very pleasant. And, goshdarnit, I admit I like the old lazy mutt too!

Getting attached to pets...why do we do it? Good luck man.

Her health was failing, as expected for her age. Everybody says that a cat'll go off away from home to die. It's been three nights and it's been cold, so we're 99% sure she's dead. We can't find her. My wife, who LOVES that cat is distraught. In short, this sucks.

Sometimes the Cafe = a place to bring your sorrows. :,-(


17 years, I imagine that it would be tough to lose her.

I doubt that this will make you feel any better, but try to think of it this way. If the worst case scenario turns out to be true, and she is dead, then at least she isn't suffering right now. She would have gone somewhere to die peacefully.

We had a cat hitch a ride underneath our car from our house to our relatives hotel, about 10 miles. As soon as we stopped the car and had that hotelroom door open (exterior entrance), this cat just darted right inside, scared out of its mind. We drove on gravel roads and highway and she stayed under there the entire time. Needless to say, we let her ride up front with us on the way back.
