I am so sorry to hear about this. RIP Jack :(
It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

Dave, Carolyn, you did everything you could, and he knew that, and zipped out on his own terms which means he kept his kitty head held high.
All as it should be.
Thinking of you.

He'll always be there for you. It's tough to go through but he won't have to suffer anymore.

RIP Jack.

So sorry to hear of this. Just saw it on Facebook. As I said there, it's like losing a member of the family.

My condolences, and sympathies.

Jack is gone but his catness lives on. Cats all around the world have unconsciously acknowledged his passing with a blink or an itch behind the ear as they sit on windowsills or fight over scraps or lie fondly in wait for a lizard to come out of a crack in the wall. You were indeed a special cat, Jack. Run riot wherever you are.

Don't worry about him, Dave.
He's ok now.
I'm showing him round his new place.

R.I.P Jack.

I can't imagine a better feline friend. It was an honor to have known him.


Rest in peace, Jack. I'm glad you had such a happy life and that you made others happy too. May you find our Neil and play with him a while.

Deepest sympathies, Dave and Carolyn.

Is this going to the births, deaths & memorials section?

RIP Jacko. He was clearly loved.

I can only guess how you feel. I've only had my ca for about nine months but I often wonder how any one could have let him go, much less put him in a shelter!! I have become so attached I would be crushed if anything happened to him now. It makes me feel good knowing you guys gave Jack one of those restful cat-happy lives he so deserved.

As you may recall, I was in the same boat last year and I went and added two new additions to the home with Zach and Zoey. Despite their attempts to dismantle the Christmas tree on a daily basis and me having to chase them around the place for a good hour to get them to the vet, they've been wonderful company and I couldn't ask for better replacements. I think it's time for you to consider getting another cat. You know you want to.
