Keep Track of Death Dates?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

We euthanized my 17-yr old cat last night, and I just woke up from a dream where he came to me to say "Goodbye." mecry.gif I am not thinking straight right now, so I thought I'd ask you this question because I don't know how I feel about it right now.  

 

Do you keep track of the dates your pets died? 

 

I still remember the date my childhood dog died, April 26, 1994. Now that I'm older and have had a few more pets over the years, I don't think I can keep track of all the dates in my pee-brain. dizzy.gif  

 

I don't want to be sad every year, but I also don't want to regret not keeping the date handy somewhere for when the time comes when I can celebrate the life lived.

Not in my worn out brain but most of them have been either cremated or buried with a marker and we work the dates in. With dogs & cats I usually carve into their tags.

So sorry about your cat.  We don't keep track of death dates (for pets or even people) because we prefer to keep track of birthdays, but I know that many people do.

Sorry about your cat. I have never kept track of pet deaths but think its a good idea.
