      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

  1. I lost my beloved cat on 15 December 2017, I had to take him to the emergency vets and have him put to sleep. He had been diagnosed with triaditis in 2016, which gradually deteriorated. I am feeling guilty that I did not have him euthanised sooner. Although he had good appetite until the end, was still after love and fuss, grooming himself (although not as much as before) and still a little playful, he was suffering with incontinence (although he was mostly good and let me clean him up) and slept more than he did. However, I feel on hindsight that I should have put his suffering to an end sooner and let him go on a good day. I know there is no point in beating myself up about this now because I cannot change anything, but I cannot seem to be able to forgive myself or stop feeling really guilty. I am trying not to dwell on the negative feelings, I have made a tribute to him, donated money in his memory, and will shortly be planting some flowers in his memory but it is hard not to be consumed with the guilt. I am sure this will wear off in time but for now just needed to get this off my chest.
