1351 Pets become family, I'm very sorry for all your losses. I too had to let go of my cat back in November. She was a rescue cat that was found cut and burnt and had a broken leg. Took a while to get her back to full health but she was always the sweetest (and most spoiled) cat ever. She was six when we started noticing a growing lump on her belly. We opted for surgery to try and save her but the tumor was too agressive and had already spread, there was nothing we could do.
