    Jack's last photographs

    Here a couple of pictures, from a few we took of Jack on Friday and Saturday before he passed away on Tuesday evening. I am glad I have photos of him from his last days with us at home, seeing him settled although he was having breathing difficulties, he was still happy.

    You can see how thin he is in these pictures compared to other pictures I have posted in memorial. He was very ill. Although I don't like to think of him as being ill, I'm still glad I have these pictures.

    I have truely never known pain like the pain I am in now.

    Jack was a beautiful boy, and he had a great life. He was a character, and it is hard to believe just how much you miss them when they are gone. It is good that you have so many lovely pictures and videos of him though. That is so important.

    How is Sunny reacting?

    Sunny is okay, though she has searched for him around the house, and has spent ages smelling everything, particularly things that he used, sat on etc.
    I am a bit worried about her, and she does seem a bit depressed, she's a quiet cat anyway, and keeps herself to herself, but I know there is something different about her, she seems sadder somehow. I think she is definately missing him, and pining somewhat. We have been giving her her usual cuddles and kisses and she's sleeping with us in bed as normal, but I am sure she is feeling sad, as she has a different look on her face, her expression is different, she has sad eyes. It hurts me to think of her as missing him. I also think she has picked up on the mood of the household, and can tell that were are upset, where I have been crying a lot.

    LES here; what a darling boy Jack was. I know you miss him more than anything. Sunny has to miss him, too. I'm glad you have these pictures, too.

    That is very true that cats do pick up on your mood. She will know how upset everybody is. I am glad she is still cuddling with you and sleeping on the bed. I suppose it is just a case of keeping an eye on her and trying to keep her engaged with you.

    Please give her a little hug from me.

    I have done the same thing just before the cat was leaving for the Bridge. We have these pictures, but I like to remember them when they were racing about the house, knocking things over, the rumbles, etc... Jack was a good looking fellow. His eyes spoke volumes and you can see he was much loved. Thank you for sharing the photos with us... take care of yourself... Sandra

    I've come back to this thread dozens of times and each time some major LES comes on because I remember the pain that overwhelmed me when I let my Speckles go. Both of you were so lucky to have each other.

    What a beautiful boy. RIP sweet Jack.
    {{{hugs}}} to you Kate.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    Sorry I am so late posting on Jacks last pictures but when I first saw them and took one look I just started crying so hard I couldn't do it. I know NOBODY misses him like you do but being a part of our PT family it hurts us too. We have lost a member of our family...

    Looking at the pictures just makes me want to snatch him off that computer screen and hug the daylights out of him. He was SO handsome!!

    Katie, I am so very sorry to hear that Jack passed. I had no idea. I am so very sorry for your loss. I hope that you can feel some comfort in knowing Jack loves you, and is still there with you. If you need anything, I am only a pm away. Love, Katie and kitties


    Thank you so much Michelle!

    Please be responsible, spay and neuter your pets!


    I've been BOO'd!!! Thanks Lori!
