Cat Can’t Let Go Of His Human’s Hand During Their Last Trip To The Vet

Cat Can’t Let Go Of His Human’s Hand During Their Last Trip To The Vet

Sharing is caring!

The most difficult part of having a pet cat is having to say goodbye for the last time, and I’m certain that anyone who has gone through it can relate to this feeling.

We all wish our furry friends could stay with us forever, bringing endless joy to our lives, but unfortunately, they leave us too soon. 

A Reddit user from Colorado, abernha3, shared a heartbreaking moment when he had to say one last goodbye to his beloved Russian Blue cat named Little Andrew.

Little Andrew had a happy and comfortable life with his human family. However, as the years went by, age caught up with him, and he became weaker and began to face more health issues.

According to Pet MD, the average cat lifespan is between 13–17 years, while some lucky cats can live up to 20 years or even more.

Sadly, Little Andrew reached the age of 15 and a half and started losing the strength to move on.

Given his age and deteriorating condition, the only humane option left was to bid him farewell. So, Little Andrew’s family accompanied him on his final journey to the vet. 

Abernha3 captured a poignant photo of this moment and shared it on Reddit, expressing:

“He held our hands on his last trip to the vet. Little Andrew was much stronger than his mom and I.”

After sharing such an emotional and heartbreaking moment, abernha3 touched the hearts of many cat parents on the Internet, who offered condolences and support to Little Andrew’s family in the comments section.

One person wrote:

“It’s amazing how they can tell when that final vet trip comes. Mine knew and was at peace about it like yours was.”

Another person commented:

“I lost my baby, a Russian Blue, two years ago. He looked just like your kitty. He was with me for 18 years. There’s a special love there that you cannot explain. My wholehearted condolences.”

One user shared:

“Thank you for sharing the love behind having a furred member of the family, and the true dedication needed to love them until the end.”

These are just a few of the many comments this cat parent received. Overwhelmed by the support, he expressed his gratitude to everyone who took the time to comment on his post, saying:

“Thanks all. Little Andrew was my junior. He was 15 and a half and loved everyone, but just got old and sick over the last year. He purred every day of his life and when he lost that, I knew it was time. Always sad to lose a friend. Sorry for everybody else’s losses as well.”

Having a furry companion is one of the most beautiful experiences, but we must always be prepared for the inevitable end.

So, to all cat parents out there, cherish every moment with your feline friends and ensure you give them the best life possible, just like they deserve.

As for abernha3 and his family, I’m sure that the memory of Little Andrew will live on forever, and his purrs will echo in their hearts for eternity.
