Sweet Dreams Tess- 2002- January 6, 2018.

My little Tess passed away this morning at 10:31. Found her crying by the sofa unable to move. Found out she had a mass in her lungs and may have gone to her brain (neurological). She seemed fined beside her sneezing these last few days. Emptiness! So confused and helpless. Feeling like I should have known.

Sorry to hear about Tess. Sending our condolences.

Cats have such a knack of masking health issues - it's almost impossible for us to recognize them.
Animals are such agreeable Friends.
They ask no Questions. They pass no Criticisms.

Oh my friend such heartache. She had 16 years which is so awesome.
I know your hurting but please know you have saved so many and I am sure Tess was one of them!!
I do believe that sometimes we just dont know when its time. I know sometimes we wish that we didnt have to make these decisions but it is the kindest thing we can do for our beloved pets when they are ill.
Hugs and I wish you find peace.

RIP Sweet Tess

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

So sorry Cpietra - please accept my deepest condolences.

Reg is right though, cats are expert at masking what ails them so don't beat yourself up. Celebrate the good 16 (though it's hard to do it now).
Hugs - we know how hard this is.

Oh, no, cpietra. So sorry about Tess

I know it's no consolation, but even if you'd known, there was nothing you could have done for her until she told you it was time. And that's what she told you this morning. So please don't beat yourself up. You gave her a wonderful life and she was so lucky to have you.

You're in my thoughts and prayers.

"We are--each of us--dying; it's how we live in the meantime that makes the difference."

"It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived!"

"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."
