I understand how you feel. My husband does rescues for wild animals, and sometimes I go along. Recently we were trying to save a squirrel that got its head caught in a dumpster. I knew when we found him that he was there for quite some time and his skull, and his body, were larger than the hole. My husband went to pick up a muscle relaxant and dropped me off at home, because I knew the squirrel would be dead by the time he returned (it was).

Please don't be sad too long. Who knows what happened to that cat. Feel comfort that at least it was with someone who cared about it and comforted it before being put down in a humane manner. As a cat owner, I thank you for that.

Snorkeling is a must for every fish lover!

Microsoft, of course you're going to be upset - anybody with any compassion would be. This is normal.

Look at it this way, the cat was hart so badly it would probably have died anyway, and there is nothing you could have done about it. You did your best, and that is all you can do.

Chin up, you'll feel better soon. :)

Hey, I am sorry -- what you just experienced was indeed traumatic :( . It is normal to be crying, it's called grief and anyone with a heart will feel it. The cat was likely hit by something, and at least it spent it's last couple of hours with you by its side. It's not suffering anymore. You did a good thing by caring for it.

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!
