    I'm pretty sure a heart attack got her. I was in the room with her and she's been having trouble for about a week now and the vets couldn't really find anything but a bladder infection and high liver values.
    Still holding her in my arms, in shock. Will take her to vet tomorrow for cremation.
    She's been through Diabetes (3 years), Lymphoma (1.3 years), hepatic lipidosis, and other ailments.
    I've known her since she was 1 month old, and she's 17 now.
    I'm glad at least I could be with her at the end. Please pray for me and my baby girl.
    Chris

    Even when we know it is coming, we are never ready. However, if she had to go, I'm glad it was quick and that you were with her.

    I am so sorry. There just are no words that are even close to adequate. I am sure you are in shock. I am glad you could be with Cleo and even more, that she wasn't alone. She was wrapped in your loving arms and she knew she was safe and cared for. Know in your heart she will be waiting for you at the Bridge. All of our GA kitties will keep her happy chasing butterflies and each others' tails until you are reunited.

    Fly free beautiful Cleo.

    Oh Dear God not CLeo!! I can't believe this. I know she was feeling poorly but I never dreamed this could happen. Like Cheryl I kind of felt she would beat everything that was thrown at her . Chris words can't express how sorry I am and how much I wish that there was something that I could do to help ease the terrible pain you are feeling right now. My heart aches for you.

    Fly high and free sweet Miss Cleo. Heaven has gained a very special angel tonight and I know our GAs are all there to greet you at the Bridge. You will be truly missed.

    She was blessed to have owned you, and you were blessed to have been owned by her. Fly free, sweet Cleo, and wait at the bridge for Chris...

    Prayers and lots of hugs for you.

    Oh I am so sorry for your sudden loss. That is so sad - but 17 years - I guess we Brits would call that "a jolly good innings" - especially having gone through such a lot.
    I hope you can take comfort in that.

    My heart is breaking for you. No matter when, it is always too soon.

    Fly Free Dear Cleo.

    Remember Our Love

    I was chosen today
    I'm learning to fly
    the world took me away,
    but please don't you cry

    And I chose you today
    to try and be strong
    so please don't you cry
    and don't say that I'm gone

    When you're feeling alone
    just remember our love,
    I'm up near the stars
    looking down from above.

    Remember our love
    In a moment you'll see
    that I'm still here beside you
    when you're thinking of me.

    My heart is crying with yours. I have looked at her picture so very many times. She seems to just radiate love and sweetness from her sweet face. You were blessed with 17 years with her and I know she was twice blessed to have spent them with you and receiving your loving care. To have left on her own terms, to have the angel carry her from your arms to heaven's gate.... I know she is with our angels and will be waiting for you. I'm so very very sorry.

    ((Chris)) I'm so sorry to see this. You two have been through so much and your sweet baby has always been such a fighter and has come through it all - and then so suddenly. Less suffering for her but you are left with the real suffering in saying goodbye. I'm so glad you were there with her and able to hold her and say goodbye.

    There's a group at the Bridge welcoming her - all of our beautiful companions that have gone on before and she will be whole and free and young and once again feel no pain.

    My heart goes out to you - l7 years - what a long and yet short time together - it's never long enough. I'm sending many comforting prayers your way tonight - she has left you (and the board) with so many wonderful memories. We're saying goodbye to so many of our old-timers - and it's so sad.

    Sending many hugs,

    Emmy & Dude (& Mittsi too)

    I am so sorry for your loss of your sweet Cleo, you two have been through so much and fought the good fight. But she left this life the way she lived it, safe in your love. She is now running free from illness and pain with the rest of our GAs at the bridge. Although this does nothing to ease your breaking heart, but you do have 17 years of memories to comfort you at this sad time.

    Fly free sweet Cleo, you were and are loved by many here that will miss you.

    Chris, I'm so sorry for the loss of your beautiful Cleo. What a shock that must have been, my heart is breaking for you. Thank heavens you were able to be there with her. Cleo was such a beautiful kitty, inside and out. She knew your love and tenderness all her life.

    My first thought when I saw your post was "not Cleo!" I know she was your sweet girl and this is a terrible loss.

    You've always brought so much to the board and I've always appreciated your posts. You've always had a positive attitude and gave thoughtful help. I was always glad to see you had posted on Talbot's thread. I'm sure all of Lantus Land has you in their hearts and prayers. (((Chris)))

    I am so sorry to hear this, Chris. You were on the board about the time I started and gave me good advice. Oliver was a Maine Coon too and he and Cleo looked alike. I am glad you could be with Cleo at the end. You gave her such a wonderful life.

    i'm so sorry for your loss and i feel your pain and how bereft you feel. i lost my baby sophie in september, aged 17, and i had had her since she was 12 weeks old - that bond we have with them is incredible.
    nothing we can say will help much now but know that there are people who understand and wish you comfort from somewhere in the days and weeks to come.

    Very sorry to hear this sad news. I agree, it was so very nice you could be there with her though. Hard to say goodbye to a friend after 17 years.

    Hi Chris-

    I hope that someday I get a cat that lives to be 17 too. Wow, she's amazing. I'm sorry you lost her, but know what you were a great mom. Thanks for sharing her with us!
    Sending lots of love from me and Merlin at this tough time.

    I'm losing her so quickly without know what was really wrong is hard, but blessedly it sounds like she didn't suffer long and left on her own terms - in her home with her loved ones. What a wonderful gift to her. I know your heart is just broken without her and I am so very sorry.

    [[[[[[[Chris]]]]]]] I haven't been here very long but every time I read your posts about dear sweet Cleo it was so plain how much you loved her and were devoted to her. You both fought so hard for each other. That love was the reason, is so clear and it continued right up to the end. Cleo protecting you from the decision we all hate and you for being there at that time, holding her as her spirit left her frail body to fly free. No more illness and no more pain. Now she is running with all her friends that have crossed the Bridge before her. Of course they all came to meet the beauty. She's now your angel around you always.

    Nothing eases the painful loss but I hope in time the raw grief will leave.When you think of your gorgeous girl you will smile even as tears come to your eyes remembering all the times you held her. From that first hello to the last sorrowful earthly good bye you belong to each other forever.

    Although I'm fairly new on the message board, I wanted to say how sorry I am that she had to leave you, but how incredily lucky she is to have had you in her life for so long. She will be boasting to all her new friends about how loved she is.

    Stunned, Chris. I can't believe she's gone. she's joined all the kitties we started out with in the little pzi room. Isabella, Spot, Remy, now Cleo. I can't believe how time passes and they leave. I share in your pain Chris, I am really shocked.
    She went in your loving arms and for that I am so comforted.
    So very sorry.

    I'm so sorry Chris. Cleo was such a little lady. She was always the best behaved of the PZI kitties. When Bessie and the others were hanging out in bars, Cleo was cuddling with you, protecting you from Bobby and the other youngsters at your house. I never had the honor of meeting her, but I always felt like she was just so incredibly sweet and lovable. I know her departure will leave a hole in your heart.

    Hugs to you,

    Terri
