    Normally, I’m make some snarky ST remark about the return of Spock – but losing a good furry friend never easy. You just have to think of what’s best for them…

    The absolutely hardest thing to have to do with your companion animal… Just thinking about it tears me up.

    A cat getting old in a strip where the characters never age?

    I had to have one of my cats put to sleep a few years ago. I’m in my 40s, and yet it hurt like nothing else! Give your kids all kinds of love and support when they lose an animal companion of any kind, they’ll need it.

    Having just lot a cat this past August, this is crushing me. I can’t help but cry a little.

    I worry about this. We got cats before we started having kids. The kids love the cats. And the cats are now starting to get old. Eventually this story will play out for us.

    So sad. Think of the good times Dean. Mark, we are all ready for a Spock retrospective.

    This really hits home for me. Just brought my kitty (Hobbes) to the vet. He is 18, and has an uneven heart rythem. :-(

    I know you mean well…but platitudes like “he’ll never die as long as you keep him in your heart” (or “he’s in a better place”) utterly and cruelly miss the point. I personally believe that both are true. But all they do in the moment is remind you that he’s gone — gone! — and he’s never coming back. They twist the knife, and make the aching emptiness inside you hurt all the more.

    The only good thing to do is exactly what Heart is doing: compassionately say nothing at all, but simply be there for him, and let him grieve as he has to.
