Unexpected

As angry, sad and depressed it makes me, I can't change that life just doesn't make sense sometimes.

Our furry little friend, the bestest cat ever - Jonesey - passed away early this morning. It came as a shock to us, as he hasn't seemed sick and is only about 5 or 6 years old (we've had him for just two). I found no evidence of him having an accident or getting into something dangerous. He greeted me like he always does during the night when I went to the bathroom. When J found him this morning, he looked like he was just taking a snooze... there's no good way for a pet to go, but we are relieved that he doesn't appear to have suffered. Still, J and I are feeling pretty heartbroken. That cat brought so much joy, love and entertainment to our lives and meant a great deal to us - I just can't believe he's gone. I'm glad we spoiled him a lot and hope he enjoyed his time with us. If I keep thinking of all the what ifs or what we could've done or we should've somehow known, I'll drive myself crazy(er). It's just incredibly shitty and sad.

OMG I am SO sorry. That's just horrid. He was a young kitty. I guess it's better if he didn't suffer but he was taken way too young.

I'm so sorry. That's so very sad, especially so suddenly, with no warning or sickness. I remember when you got him, and who he was named after. It sounds like he had a great life with you. Poor Jonesey.

How sad, I'm so sorry! It's really hard to lose a pet. Each one really is irreplaceable. :(

Thanks so much to all of you for the kind thoughts/comments. I'm trying to get to the acceptance stage, but it just seems unreal that he's not here. We love and miss that little guy so much!
