Leo_Mommy - I'm so sorry to hear of your loss of sweet Leo.  I've not made it to the place of grief yet but it's always in the back of my mind when I look at Max.  I question everything he does now like I never did.  He seems mostly ok still.  He's more tired.  His black fur is mostly gray now.  It seems old age has crept upon us swiftly this past year.  I wonder what's slowing him down more, his age or the cancer that is silently doing who knows what within his little body?  I'm sure you gave Leo a wonderful life for 14 years.  Poor Pablo is probably so lost.  I hope you can find comfort in one another.  It's amazing how much we feel for these special little creatures.  Be kind to yourself.  Everyone here at the forum says in time the pain gets easier.  It might never go away but eventually it becomes bearable.  Sending hugs and good thoughts your way.

Please pray for me. My precious other tuxedo son, Pablo, just passed into eternity tonight. He was my Leo’s twin brother and got sick shortly after Leo passed with what two DVMs and two specialists believed to be liver cancer. He had been in the hospital all week and I brought him home over the weekend. Was supposed to take him back in the morning. My heart and body feel like I’m on the verge of not being able to make it anymore. Had to come into work right after. Please pray. I don’t know what to do.

Leo_Mommy, I'm so so sorry to hear about Pablo.  Is it possible for you to call off work and claim you're ill?  No need to tell them about Pablo.  Just say you're not well.  And frankly, you are not well.  You're grieving.  You're in my thoughts.  In the past 3 weeks, I've had to close friends that had to put their sweet companions down.  One was due to liver failure and she went down quick.  The other was just this past Saturday and my friend's sweet cat, Biscuit, lost his fight with a cancerous tumor that was growing on his face.  Just yesterday my husband said to me "It's God's cruel joke to give us animals.  We don't deserve them.  We love them like crazy and then they're taken away entirely too soon."  Take care of yourself.  Try to rest if you can.  Sleep will put your mind at ease.

Oh Leomommy, so sorry about your sad news.  Please take care of yourself - go home, crawl into bed.  I luckily had a therapist to help me thru the grief and she told me to listen to my body, remember the good times, and cut myself slack for however long I needed it (it's been 4 months since my kitty crossed the bridge). 

You can call out. You can go home. This is a family emergency. You are grieving. Your body hurts.  If you had a broken leg, you'd go home. You have a broken heart.  

Take care of yourself and find someone to talk to.  Sending light and love.

Thank you for the advice, Stephtastic. Wise words that I will try to heed as soon as I can. We buried precious Pablo today. Reality has tried to sink in and it is hard to breathe. I just feel like screaming. I don’t know how I’m ever really going to make it. Both my baby boys in less than 3 months is more than I feel like I can bear. I am so sorry for all of you who are going through this. It is unreal.
