Saturday was Bailey's last day on this earth. We found him and he had passed. I thought he was sleeping as he looked like he always did when he slept, laying on his belly with his little paws up front, but he had died. We had him for 8 lovely years, we wish our time with him could have lasted forever.

I just wish I knew what happened to him.. He was so healthy.
I am having a hard time as he was our only indoor kitty left and now we have no kitty. Our son that is 7 has had a really hard time too, he wants his cat back.
Here he is with our son just a week ago.

We lost a young, healthy, indoor cat like that in the spring. It is SO hard... My kids were also brokenhearted like your son. We waited six months then adopted a one year old recent mama cat from the shelter; she is just a love but we still miss our kitty so much!

I'm sorry your family is going through this. It is a hard pain to watch the kids go through.

I'm so very sorry to hear about the loss of your furry family member.
Our bunny died very suddenly last Feb and DH, DD and I were all heartbroken. The immediate silence in our home was so very hard. We still miss him.
I feel for you and your son.

One week today and we are still so sad he is not here with us.
It is so hard to say goodbye to someone that provided so much happiness and love to our little family. We will miss you forever Bailey.

If you are interested here is our blog and I posted about him and some photos.
