Our 18 yr old cat had to be put to sleep at the weekend thru illness and now our 2 yr old JR is sad
We have recently lost our puss cat 18 years old. My jack Russell is now very quiet and sad. Please can you give me some advice thank you
Awwww......how sad. This makes me feel so badly for you and for your Jack Russell that was close to his feline sister. 18 years is a pretty long time for your kitty to live!
I know I would get to a shelter or a rescue as soon as possible to see the cats that are available for adoption. In fact, if you're not sure how your pooch would react to a new member of your fa,ily, take him with you to the shelter and let him actually SEE the cats & kittens. If he seems happy and excited, as the animals caretakers if you can allow the cat & dog to interact a little. If they take to one another, you have solved your doggy's sadness!
If not, than It will be just a matter of grieving time and he'll be OK.
Excellent answer. I want to add that I am so sorry that your owner ( the cat ) passed on. 18 years is incredible. You must have taken care of each other very well.
"your owner" LOL......any cat lover knows that's the truth!!

If your dog or cat needed a limb amputated would you keep the pet or put it to sleep?For the record I have seen loads of dogs and cats with three, (even two) legs survive perfectly well, but likewise I have seen owners faced with this choice say that either they don't think it is fair to have a...

Is it appropiate for a 40 year old woman to go clubbing with 18 year old girls?Or are you only as young as you feel. Age is only a number to some people and they might feel young at heart and enjoy hanging out with people a few years younger than them.

I am heartbroken to even be considering this, however my springer spaniel/border collie who is 14 years old is having a lot of issues. He is basically deaf, can't hardly see, sleeps most of the day, he has also become more snappy ( he NEVER would have snapped at anyone) but now if 2 year old...
