I had to put my cat to sleep today. He was 15 years old. It was probably one of the hardest things I've had to go through. Sometimes you just think of them as animals, until you realize how much of a companion they are. I was 10 years old when I got him, so I pretty much grew up with him. Everyone at the vet probably thought it was funny watching my dad and I walk out bawling our heads off. It's just weird, I feel like I've lost a family member.
