Commiserations Hardman, always a hard thing to do, but it beats seeing them suffer  :(

Yeah, it never is, you just have to accept it is very unlikely they will outlive you, although with my life-style anything is possible.  :)

Cats are amazing at hiding pain, had cats all my life, this one it took a while to realise she was even in pain, but she sure was, cancer the vet suspects, but either way done now and let the sadness settle...

Cheers

A bit sad but yeah, with old age in pets can come that decision.  My parents had to make the same for theirs a few years ago (also adopted stray) though I think it was closer to 18 or 19.  A case of eating lots, putting on no weight and just looking and acting frail for months.
It seems with cats more than most animals, they can hide pain pretty well.

True Ice, right up to the end, she was always a fighter, not a particularly affectionate cat, but  always loved her, going to be sadly missed.

25 years for a cat is a damn good innings, the ones we've had in my family were mid to late teens at best.

I am not a happy person today - had to send my cat off to be put down. Cancer and constant blood loss, it was the kindest thing - 25 years old as best guess - good age for a cat. I gave her a good life, and a good ending. the vet just called, she's gone.

Damn I'm going to miss her, going to be a while before I get another one, although with my luck I'll get adopted by a stray in a week...

Cheers

Check it out. 
Fossils.  Real fossils.  The link is for 'sub $50' purchases.  Shipping is about $10 - $20. 
I just bought my son a 2.5" Spinosaurus Tooth for $55 (including shipping). 

They also have cool things like "Ammonite earrings" and all sorts of crazy cool fossils. 

This birthday my son gets a Mosasaur tooth and a Spinosaur Tooth.
What more could a "Dinosaur Crazy" 8 year old want?
