Unhappy New here, had to put my beloved kitty to sleep on Monday

I just found this forum.

I only had Mattea for about 4 years. She snuck into our basement as a ferral kitten. I tamed her and she has been such a blessing to me. Her favorite spot was to sleep on my chest. She was a beautiful calico with the prettiest blue green eyes.

About 2 weeks ago, she snuck outside and got bit, we think, by another cat on the top of her head. I took her to the vet last Monday when she started acting sick and discovered she had a large abcess, so we treated her and she was doing better until Sunday. Took her back in on Monday only to find out that the fever had returned with a vengeance and she was having neurological issues too. Vet thought it best to put her to sleep.

I'm so heart broken. Life is just not the same. My little lap buddy is no longer there at night. I don't think I have any more tears to cry. Words can't really express how special she was to me.

To those mourning the loss of a kitty, so sorry you are going through this pain too.

Hi & welcome

I'm so very sorry for Mattea's loss. I understand you perfectly since I lost 3 of my furkids.
Now you need a new friend. Don't think right now but the best for you will be to adopt another one (maybe two brothers or two sisters) This will help a lot in the sad moment you are going through.
Do you have any Mattea's pic to share with us?

I am so sorry for your loss of Mattea sweetheart.You are not alone,I lost my baby Harley in Feb.It is so sad I know,but Mattea is at Rainbow Bridge now,free from pain and playing with all our fluffy kids that we have lost.I am still hurting over Harley,but it does get easier love,I promise.Like Maya said before me,maybe think of taking in a kitten or two,in the future.It takes the sting out of all the pain you're going through.I'm Cheryl by the way,from South Wales.What is your location?Again,I am very sorry for your loss.xxxxx

I've been thinking about trying to find a ragdoll. I've done a lot of reading in the last 2 days and they sound so wonderful. I want a kitty that likes to be held or would sit in my lap and enjoy a good petting.

I will probably look in a month or so after we have moved and settled a bit ourselves. We are moving to Arkansas in July. Right now would probably stress a kitten too much.

We moved several times with Mattea. She actually like riding in the car.

Thanks for all the kind thoughts. It helps to talk to other people who love cats as much as I do. Hubby isn't much of a cat person, but he has been so sweet and as understanding as he can be about Mattea's death.

We are currently in Virginia about 2 hours south of DC

I'm so sorry to hear about Mattea, it's heartbreaking, especially when she was so young. I lost my Simba at a young age last year. Everyone here on the site understands how important our fur babies are to us, so please come and tell us more about your angel xx

Oh, it's really heartwrenching what happened to your girl, Mattea. Your husband and you are nice persons. Hope you can find another girl or boy soon after you moved to Arkansas or even before, you're right that moving places can be stressful for a cat, but who knows, maybe your newbie will be just like Mattea who enjoyed travelling in the car ?

I am so sorry for the loss of Mattea and I too recently lost my sweet boy Oscar only in December. I was devasted beyond words and thankfully have Zipper to help with the grief. She still pines for him every now and again. I am getting 2 new furbabies in 7 weeks who were born last Friday afternoon and one of them I chose has the same kind of markings that Oscar had and the other is like Zipper. They aren`t to replace Oscar but I have so much love for cats I wanted to have some newby`s again to watch grow up. I`d take all 5 that were born but we have a bylaw here that only lets us have 2.
