My meow passed away suddenly....
« on: June 08, 2016, 03:53:14 pm »
Yesterday morning.....fell off the bed, twitched for a few minutes, and died quickly, I think.

Didn't suffer.  He wasn't sick.  He was overweight, though.

He was 11.  I had him for a year - my first cat.  I had asked the Humane Society for an older one.

Very shy and skittish.  Took him a while to warm up to me.

I named him "Moo Moo," but I actually usually called him "Meow" or similar.


Peter   :-*

Today's my birthday - 69  ;D               Re Moo dying just before my birthday, I don't dwell on that.

Peter,

That's so sad! I'm sorry for your loss. It's always tough to lose a pet.

On a happier note, happy birthday!

Sorry for your loss, Peter. They're part of the family. Thinking of you.

Hi Peter,
I haven't been on the forum for awhile. I am sorry that you lost your cat. They become so much a part of the family. Right near your birthday too.

Why Didn't I Have a Cat Before?  (he was my first cat!)   - these two reasons are "beneath the surface," and hard to uncover.

Didn't want to break routine?  The reason I don't do a lot of others things.

 

I'm not "good enough" to look after a cat?   "core belief"

(I'm taking a 6 session course on combatting depression using CBT and dialectical behaviour therapy) - when our social worker group leader wrote core belief on the wall, it "jumped off the wall" at me....LOL

The core belief being = I'm not good enough/I'm no good.  I'm not good enough to do a lot of things!  (I guess)  Good news:  that's probably the most common core belief.

 

When I had my cat.

-he sometimes mad me kinda depressed - I felt sorry for his cat existence of just hanging around all day

-I often thought I was doing something wrong, not doing enough for him....not playing enough with him - he didn't like to play, though

 

 

One more thing - my youngest brother had a cat...passed away a few months ago - he felt exactly the same as me!

 

Peter
